Our 8 strong extended family enjoyed a wonderful week here in early August. The finca has been sympathetically restored and is lovely inside and out with ample utensils to suit all our needs. The house is situated in a lovely fruit growing area with grape vines, pear trees, nut trees and olive trees in the grounds. The grounds are well maintained and the children especially enjoyed the pool. The outside dining area was so convenient and comfortable. This part of Spain was new to us but so convenient to Alicante airport (appx 1 hr). The neighbouring town of Villena (about 20 mins away) was well worth a visit. Overall we had a great week and would highly recommend this property.
The photographs don't prepare you for the scale this property is. It is so much bigger in real life. It is immaculate and spotlessly maintained with 2 pool cleaners manicuring the pool each morning for a full hour.
Fontanars can provide basic supplies but you need to travel for 30 minutes to get to a supermarket - which we did every other day.
The biggest problem were the flies which were a constant distraction throughout our stay, We were all subjected to biters during the night and a check of bedlinen at 2 am typically revealed some snappers on the bedsheets - some with wings some without, which unfortunately targeted us all.
I'd suggest mosquito netting on the bedroom windows plus valancess that clear the floor would improve the situation.
Overall a wonderful holiday retreat in superb countryside surroundings. Exceptional.
