Michael's villa has everything you need - a great outside space, the pool gets the sun all day and there is a shaded area perfect for eating al fresco. The parking area is off road and secured by double gates. An added bonus was the air con: the property description states that there is air con in the lounge and fans in the bedrooms. However Michael has upgraded the property so that air con is available in every room apart from the single bedroom.
The villa is situated roughly 3 mins drive south of Oliva town centre - there are several lovely beaches along this part of the coast; they are uncrowded and the water is not cold, even for a landlubber like me! For shopaholics there is a large shopping centre in Ondara, about a 10 minute drive south of the villa. There are plenty of supermarkets all within 15 minutes drive - Mercadona, Carrefore, Lidl and Aldi.
Between the villa and Alicante there are several lovely towns - Xavier, Calpe, Denia and Altea; all of them are worth exploring. So to take advantage of your stay at the villa I would strongly recommend hiring a car with sat nav (to save money on this book early and choose "off airport" hire - this is much cheaper than collecting the car at the airport itself and all of the rental companies provide free transfers to and from the airport: most of them are about a 5 minute drive from the airport).
I can't think of much else to say other than to mention the wonderful Dot!!! She is Michael's representative. We arrived on Sunday (the supermarkets are closed) so I emailed a grocery list to Dot and she very kindly ensured that we were well stocked when we arrived. Dot is very informative, down to earth and completely approachable - if you have any issues or need additional information she will respond swiftly.
In summary: a great villa, great location and the amazing Dot at hand when you need her!
We stayed in this beautiful apartment for 10 days visiting family in the local area and had a fabulous time. The apartment has everything you need and the pool and grounds are lovely and clean. Communication when organising and collecting the keys was nice and easy. We would definitely stay again if returning to Pego!
