A modern and spacious villa in the heart of real Spain away from the hustle and bustle of tourist Spain. Very clean, tidy and well presented offering all the requirements for a relaxing holiday. There was only the two of us on this occasion and the villa coped very well for our needs. We enjoyed the spectacular views at all times of the day and the pagoda over the outside eating area not only protected from the daytime sun but created a cosy spot for evening dining. It was just so peaceful! There was a minor problem of keeping the pool completely clean during our stay due to dust from a storm or the farming, but it was not an issue to us and it was regularly maintained whilst we were there. Due to its out of the way location a car is a must if you want to explore the area. The property is accessed along an unadopted road with great private parking behind a lockable gate. Valencia was an easy 40 minute drive away which we would recommend if you have not been before. We had a great time and we thank the owners for sharing their home with us. We would greatly recommend a stay at this home from home villa and we know our teenagers would have loved it if they had been with us!
Xativa is a great town to go to. Very Spanish so take your phrase book. Soak up the history of the “ Old Town and Castle”. The market however was a dissapointment.
If you are up for driving there are some great beaches not that far. Denia and Javea is certainly worth a visit.
The villa is well equipped. You will want for nothing in the kitchen. It has every conceivable appliance-although a bit small. Bear in mind though there is a large paella house outside and a good size BBQ if that is where you would prefer to cook.
We spent many an evening on the veranda looking over the mountains. We never got board with the views.
The garden area and pool was also a place to while away some time. With the paella house having a fridge it was not too much of a journey to get your cold drinks.
The lounge was very comfortable and homely. Plenty to read and games to play.
Just a couple of criticism.p It would be beneficial to have WiFi today as we all, or most, rely on our gadgets.
Claire and Tommy were always at the end of a phone should there have been any issues.
