Absolutely fantastic place. We (parents, two teenage daughters) had a wonderfully fun and relaxing holiday. The location and set up of the apartment give wonderful views down the pine-covered hillside to the coast and out across the sea, which you get as soon as you wake up (in the double bedroom), from the main room and from the open balcony where we had meals. The pool and terrace are also fantastic. We also really enjoyed the bigger communal pool (just beyond El Pinar restaurant) - I think that's only open July and August (?) It was a pretty constant 30-32 degrees and sunshine for us (second half of August) but if you open the windows and doors there's a lovely breeze. A bit warm at night but the fans in the rooms helped a lot (though the fan in the twin room could do with replacing). We enjoyed walking down the hill to the lovely little beach at Las Fuentes, and around and up the hill to hermitage. Everything from rent-a- pedalo beaches to quiet, good for snorkeling beaches to walking through unspoilt hills available within easy drives. We also enjoyed trips to Peniscola (nice castle in particular) and Vinaros (big town beaches + nice hermitage a bit inland), and particularly Morella (hour and a half inland, but very much worth it). But mostly, a whole lot of relaxed mooching around and la dolce fa niente (sorry, don't know the Spanish for that!). All seems like a dream now. Fabulous place.
From our initial message asking about availability to the actual stay we have nothing by praise for the owner of this villa. Extremely helpful, quick to respond and very friendly; we've been renting villa's for over 20 years, this was by far the best experience we've had for many a year.
The villa itself was perfectly located, we enjoyed the short stroll to the beach everyday. At night it was an easy 20 minute walk to the town. As a family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children from 9-18yrs) we found there was plenty of room and the downstairs bedrooms so large no-one complained about sharing. Every room was well appointed and very clean. The master suite upstairs was heaven, really comfy bed, well appointed en-suite and the views... it was a pleasure to wake up.
The children loved the pool, as competent swimmers they liked the fact it was quite deep at one end.
We ate in several local restaurants on the beach front, all very good (some recommended by the owner) and the children enjoyed playing on the sand whilst we had a Sangria at a great beach-side bar!
Valencia was an easy drive and well worth the trip.
Overall would really highly recommend.
