Owners Manu and Lily went out of their way to make our stay special. Nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and anyone who wants a relaxing stay and if required as we did, lovely meals cooked by Manu.

                                                                                                      Wat een fantastische plek! We zijn in september voor de tweede keer op vakantie geweest in Casa Tarsan en het was weer fantastisch. Bij aankomst aan het huis was het precies of we niet weg waren geweest. Je voelt je er meteen thuis en het vakantiegevoel is direct aanwezig. Het is ook weer genieten van alle mooie uitzichten die het huis biedt. Koen en Heidi hebben ook mooi werk geleverd aan de terrassen. Er is een hele leuke loungeset bijgekomen waardoor het nog meer genieten is van de uitzichten. Het huis zelf is volledig in orde. Alles wat je moet hebben, is aanwezig. Zeker nu er vorige zomer een afwasmachine geïnstalleerd is. De keuken is groot, praktisch en volledig. Je kunt er gemakkelijk koken voor 10 personen of meer. Er zijn in het huis 2 badkamers aanwezig. dit is perfect. Ook de slaapkamers zijn dik in orde. Wij hebben er goed geslapen. Kortom, het is een heel mooi en proper huis. Wat ook heel handig is, is dat er buiten aan het huis een geluidsinstallatie hangt. Zo kan je ook buiten van de muziek genieten. Zeker tijdens poolparty's komt dat van pas. Tijdens ons verblijf hebben we enkele uitstappen gedaan. Wat je zeker moet doen: een dagje Valencia, dagje strand en zee in Gandia, de watervallen Les Fonts de l'Algar. We hebben ook dit jaar weer een goede service gekregen van Loes. Het huis was weer kraaknet als we toekwamen. Ze zorgde er ook steeds voor dat het zwembad proper was. Ze stond steeds paraat als er een probleem was of als we vragen hadden. Het is een ontzettend lief persoon. We hebben weer genoten van ons weekje vakantie in Casa Tarsan. Het is een plek waar je rustig en ontspannen kunt worden, waar je kunt genieten van de natuur en de prachtige uitzichten. De zonsondergangen moet je er gezien hebben. Casa Tarsan is een aanrader voor iedereen!!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      My husband and I have recently returned from Casa Blanca. We have not rented a holiday home previously and therefore did not know what to expect, what to bring or what to ask! Fortunately, when planning the visit, we felt reassured by Nigel (the owner) who answered our preliminary questions very promptly and honestly. Importantly, we felt that the description of the villa was accurate and fully agreed with the positive comments provided by previous visitors. On arrival in the town, we were met by an extremely helpful and informative lady (Annette) who guided us to the villa from a pre-arranged meeting point (McDonalds). This was very useful, as although the villa is nearby Xativa centre, it would be tricky to find the villa without help initially. The villa was very clean and well equipped/furnished. Every door and window has beautiful wood panelled shutters…which are charming and authentic. Although we did not need to use any heating, we also admired the wood burner as this is housed in a round/traditional Spanish fireplace. The pool was immaculate and has a lovely terrace surrounding it. Nigel has a large collection of DVDs (to suit every age) and an even larger collection of books. There are two supermarkets nearby and we discovered that a local garage is open on a Sunday. To celebrate a special occasion, we visited a restaurant for lunch in a nearby hotel (Mont-Sont) which is situated in a lovely setting below a Castle. Although we expected (and hoped) the local residents would be primarily Spanish speaking, we forgot to take a phrase book on holiday (or download a translation app) and discovered just before leaving that there were a few books of this type in the villa (a clear indication of the care that Nigel gives to the items that visitors might need!)
