About the property

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms sleeps 8

This superb detached villa offers spacious & comfortable accommodation for up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms each of which have 2 single beds. The villa & pool are maintained to a very high standard. The private 10m x 5m pool is surrounded by a large terrace & is separated from the other terraces by gates, making it safe for children to play & parents to relax.

The villa & pool area have extensive terrace areas which gives the option of sun or shade throughout the day.

There is a fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher & oowashing machine. The lounge, which overlooks the pool, has an open fire, TV & DVD & leather sofas.

With marble floors throughout & air conditioning (extra charge applies) to all 4 bedrooms, lounge & kitchen diner, this spacious family villa is furnished to a very high standard to provide luxury & comfort at affordable rates.

Golf: The golf courses of Villamartin, Las Ramblas, Campomor & Los Colinas are just a few minutes drive from Casa Larissa.

To the south, but only a 35 minute drive you can play at the La Manga resort which offers another 3 courses.

Golf Altorreal is a similar distance but is inland near the city of Murcia.

A 20 minute drive north will take you to the recently opened La Finca course in the village of Algorfa. A bit further on is the Club La Marquesa at Quesada.

Alenda G.C. near the town of Monforte is about 10 minutes inland from junction 73 on the A7/E15 motorway & well worth the 40 minute drive from the villa.

We live in Surrey & own a kitchen, bathroom & bedroom showroom. We have 2 sons, both of which are involved in the family business & a daughter Larissa whom we named the villa after. We now have 5 beautiful grand children who love spending their holidays at the family villa.

COLIN HOLFORD purchased this villa in 2001

Why COLIN HOLFORD chose Orihuela

We were looking for a holiday home in 2001 but after numerous days viewing with agents we could not find a suitable re-sale property which suited our needs. As a last resort we agreed to look at a plot which was for sale despite our remit being we want a turn key property.

They took us to an older urbanization & stopped the car at this lovely south facing corner plot. We instantly loved the location & over the next 18 months the villa was constructed. One major 'must have' was a 10x5m pool rather than the standard 8x4m which has proved to be very popular with all who have spent their holidays at our villa. Being a keen golfer, the fact that there were 3 golf courses practically on my doorstep was a fantastic bonus. Now, 15 years on there are many more within a short drive.

What makes this villa unique

large 10 x 5m private pool

air con through out the villa

WiFi available

fantastic beaches nearby

quality golf courses

plenty of room around the villa to chill out

within walking distance to many restaurants & bars

Our first family holiday abroad. Could not fault a thing. Villa is out of this world so spacious and clean and very cool (which was needed).

Bedrooms were big again very clean.

Pool was fantastic very big and very safe for the children.

Only downside was that our stay was only a week and not longer!

Would definitely return.

Wonderful Place!

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful Villa. It was like home from home and not far to walk to the bars and shops, we were sharing with our friends and the Villa is so nice and big, it didn't feel like we we're on top of one another. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lovely villa and great sized pool

  • 4 of 5

The villa and pool were really good, not been to this area in Spain before, some lovely beaches but parking tricky so get there early in high season and you need to search for good Spanish restaurants as a lot of English bars and restaurants which is not really our thing

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Whole experience was spot on, party of 5 adults and 1 baby. We were never on top of each other, villa has a great plot and is very spacious. Villa is well equipped with everything you need and is only a 15 min walk from villa martin plaza or 3 min drive. Will be returning for sure. Colin was super easy to deal with

Owner's Response: Dear John Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay at our villa last year. As you say, the villa itself is spacious but just as importantly, the large terraces around the villa & pool makes it so that you are never cramped & gives children plenty of room to play. The beauty of having a corner plot also means you only have neighbours to one side & to the rear of the villa making the pool terrace very private. Upon speaking to guests who have returned from their holiday at our villa, the majority all comment how nice it is to have such a large pool as that is where they spend most of their time during the summer months. Yes, there are some fantastic restaurants nearby & the blue flag beaches are very popular as well. We are pleased you & your family enjoyed your holiday & look forward to hearing from again should you choose to stay with us again. Best Wishes Colin

Spacious, comfortable, clean & well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for the 6 of us (4 adults, 2 children) both in the villa and around the pool. The area is nice and quiet and the villa is just a short drive from supermarkets, restaurants etc. I'd be happy to book again.

Villamartin is situated 45 minutes south of Alicante & 35 minutes north of La Manga & just 7 minutes inland from some of the best beaches on the Costa Blanca. The bustling town of Torrevieja is a 15 minute drive. A one hour drive north will take you to Benidorm & the Terra Mitica theme park.

Other Activities: Fantastic go-kart track nearby & local water park.

The lovely city of Murcia is a 1 hour drive away & well worth the trip.

Cartagena with it's beautiful shops & port is 45 minutes which is roughly the same journey time as it takes to get to La Manga.
