                                                            Casa Forster is located in a great location around 10km from the airport and just a short walk from the beach but also a nature area which is lovely to stroll around. The villa is well presented with everything you'll need. It was clean and well kept. (For the first time staying in a villa) The broadband was excellent which was really helpful. I'd recommend Panta Pola along the coast as a great place to stroll and eat out, but there are bars and restaurants just a short walk away.

                                                            Great accommodation

                                                            Very well equipped villa, comfortable beds and the heated pool was just amazing. Pool towels supplied which is also a bonus. Pool was lovely and warm and super for early/late season use and was a big factor for us booking here as the kids spent most of their time in there. Party of 3 adults and 2 children and were very comfortable, plenty of space and beautiful solarium/balcony upstairs. Shops and bars within 10-15 mins walk in either direction. Not a busy area but has everything you need and bus stop nearby. At the time we were there all the shops were closed on Sundays so watch out for that. Otherwise no complaints and would definitely return. Lovely break.

                                                            Pleasant stay

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            We stayed for two weeks in Feb 2016 as a winter break. Weather good - warm & sunny 50%, other days windy/cloudy but not cold - we wore shorts most days. Just one day of rain. Villa immaculate, clean & modern. Sitting/dining room overlooks communal garden. Good size bedrooms, comfy double bed. Useful safe in wardrobe. Well-fitted bath & shower rooms. Compact kitchen had all necessary items (a microwave would be a nice addition). To have UK TV & Wifi was a blessing in the cooler evenings. We enjoyed sunbathing on the roof terrace. NB Good advice from UK permanent neighbours to turn heating off temporarily when cooking to avoid tripping fusebox, as they put it 'heat or eat'! The villa is in a small development around a shared central garden & pool. Well maintained & attractive, pool clean & sparkling, though as unheated we didn't use it. The Clot de Galvany nature reserve is very close, & we had pleasant walks there. Carabassi beach is a 15-20 minute walk, a beautiful long stretch of sand, reached by boardwalks over the dunes. There is a small shop, plus bars & restaurants 10 minutes walk away. Here you can take the road train to the Commercial Centre, with larger shops & eateries. We used Lidl & also Mercadona - great for fruit & veg - & super cakes! Not having hired a car, we took the bus from the main beach road for a day in Alicante. Cost just over €3 each for return journey (buy outward ticket on bus & return in Alicante bus station). We visited the magnificent hilltop castle (free entry, pay for lift up) and the Contemporary Art Centre (again free). Our local contacts, Mark & Martin, were friendly & helpful - with indepth knowledge of the area. All in all, a relaxing stay in a healthy environment, with comfortable accommodation. Many thanks, Olwen & Ed
