Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Oliva, Spain your home away from home

Oliva is a beach resort on the Costa del Azahar, between Valencia and the Costa Blanca. Boasting 10km of beaches, magnificent sports facilities and luxury holiday accommodation, Oliva is rapidly gaining international recognition as a world class holiday destination. Oliva manages to combine fantastic beaches, great golf and a peaceful atmosphere whilst keeping huge concrete developments at bay.

Places to holiday in Oliva, Spain

Less than an hour from Oliva is the main attraction of the Costa Blanca; Benidorm. Benidorm is completely different to Oliva, having lost much of its original charm, now standing for beach and nightlife orientated holidays. With 1000 restaurants and 30 clubs, Benidorm is always popular. Benidorm has a casino, two theme parks, a water park and many other children’s attractions, making it a great day out if you have taken an Oliva holiday rental for a family holiday.

Things to do in Oliva, Spain

Oliva is still a Spanish town first and holiday resort second, and although the facilities are excellent, leaving you wanting for nothing once in your Oliva holiday rental, shop keepers and waiters do not all speak perfect English like in many resorts. An effort to speak the language is hugely appreciated by the very hospitable locals. The nightlife is lively, and the bars stay open till late, but for more international evening entertainment, try the resort of Denia, just 15 minutes down the coast. Walking around the Oliva you will discover much about its history. The city gates, fountains, buildings, gardens and walls all tell a story, and give you an idea of how the town grew. The churches of Sta Maria and St Roc are certainly worth a visit.

The Oliva Nova Golf Club was designed by Seve Ballesteros, and has put Oliva on the golf holiday map, with golfers from across the globe rushing to take a holiday rental villa in Oliva to try their hand at this stunning 18 hole golf course in the sun. Non-members can enjoy a round and the facilities of the Oliva Nova Golf Club whilst staying in rental accommodation in Oliva, including the spa facilities.

The beaches in Oliva have been a great influence in the development of such a magnificent holiday centre. With long, wide, blue flag beaches covered in fine, golden sand, Oliva holiday rentals are in great demand, especially as there are no high rise hotels to soak up the surplus. Surprisingly, Oliva’s beaches are never crowded, even during peak season, which only adds the idyllic atmosphere. The strong prevailing winds along the coast of the Costa del Azahar has meant that water sport, especially sailing, windsurfing and kite boarding, have erupted over the years, and sports equipment can often be seen drying outside property and holiday apartments in Oliva.

Between Oliva and the Segaria Mountains is Europe’s largest subterranean lake, which has been declared a protected natural reserve. Both bird and plant life is abundant here with many migratory birds taking refuge here including variety of flamingo, stork and duck. The mountains behind the park provide a further haven for walking, climbing, hang gliding and canoeing from an Oliva villa rental.

Weather in Oliva, Spain

With 300 days of sun every year and average temperatures in summer soaring to 29˚C, the beaches of Oliva are a beautiful place to spend a few days relaxing. Even in winter, the golf courses, sporting facilities, restaurants and natural parks are great to use when staying in self catering Oliva accommodation, as average temperatures are still over 13˚C.

If that is the case, then my review will be largely ignored because I can write nothing but positive things about our recent holiday here. From the first warm and firm welcoming handshake at the arranged meeting point to lead us to our accommodation to our final embrace on the last day with delightful, helpful, friendly owners Sheila and Eric our holiday ticked every single box. We wanted peace, rest and relaxation and it came in abundance. We wanted a lovely, clean, inviting, well equipped, comfortable apartment in superb surroundings with wonderful views, we got that too. We wanted a local town, not commercial, that offered an array of good and varied restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and a fantastic clean beach. Got that as well. The weather was exceptional for early October with just two days when the sun didn't shine. We took the opportunity to explore nearby Denia on one of those days. That was very nice too. It was everything we wanted from our holiday and more. But don't take my word for it, go try it yourself. You won't be disappointed, that I can promise you. Which leaves me to say one final thing. Very many thanks Sheila and Eric. Bless you both.

A lovely villa with everything we could have needed – everything was on hand and thought out. A typically quaint Spanish villa (so not modern), but practically perfect in very way! The bedrooms are very small, but the living accommodation could not have been better sized, the kitchen, living room and outside seating / dining areas were very very spacious. The grounds are gorgeous and completely fenced in and secluded. The pool is above ground level and so our little toddler was able to freely run around whilst we relaxed in the sun. The location was perfect for us – In a lovely quiet area off the beaten track. That said, we did not have a car hire and definitely did not need one – please do not be put off of this villa because you think you need a car. The lovely local shop which sold everything we could have needed for breakfasts and lunches was a 6 minute walk away, the nearest restaurants and beach a 12 minute stroll (with a toddler) and Pau Pi beach no more than 20 minutes. We would definitely love to return to Los Sauces!! Only one minor note was the temperature of the pool. Fully appreciate that it was not advertised as heated, so completely our choice, but despite visiting Spain just as the heatwave had ended the shape and location of the pool meant it was very cold to the point I could not even get in it. I would happily pay a supplement if there was some way of having the pool heated. A wonderful villa, owned and run by a lovely couple who could not have been more helpful.

We have 2 young children and so it is important to us that we have our own space and privacy, with space for the children to play and run around, without feeling like we are intruding on other guests. This villa really offers everything for a small family, from a wonderful big garden and hot tub under the canopy, through to the swimming pool with plenty of inflatable toys and gated access for safety and peace of mind. The views are wonderful, offering a glimpse of the ocean through the orange groves, and the mountain location offers peace and quiet, whilst being only a short drive away from the nearest town with all the amenities you could wish for, including a good childrens playground in the centre and bustling market on a Friday. The villa itself is well equipped with everything you could need for a restful break, including large, comfortable beds, a beautiful family bathroom and an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner with TV and a good selection of DVDs, games and books. Our favourite part of the holiday was sipping prosecco in the hot tub under the stars, and having a competitive game of table tennis as the sun went down. Perfect! We will definitely be back.
