About Tim Puddicombe
Tim and Sandra, British nationals, work and live in Dubai,United Arab Emirates, Middle East. Our intention is to spend several weeks of the year at the villa and it is our home, and not somewhere just to rent out. We are the second owner of the property during its lifetime of 35 years, and it has been extremely well maintained and cared for, and used by three generations of family. We fell in love with Moraira instantly when we found it, it has everything you would want for an enjoyable and everlasting holiday memory, a fantastic place to spend quality time with family, friends or even alone if you require a short break from the pace of “working life”. Our long term plan is to retire there.
Tim Puddicombe purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Tim Puddicombe chose Arnella
The villa is particularly well equipped and well placed to enjoy a quality vacation. As this is a 'home' rather than just a holiday villa, the fittings and fixtures are of an exceptional quality and we will ensure if required there is a welcome pack of food and drink to see you through to the following day, so you really can just come in through the front door, unpack and relax. It boasts fabulous panoramic sea and mountain views that many comment on and remember. We are keen gardeners and enjoy good decor, and seek to continually improve the décor of such a quality villa. The solar heated pool, terraces - with both sun and shade, table tennis, outside summer kitchen and with a new barbecue and many outdoor dining spaces mean that guests often spend most of their stay at the villa. This is a very private and safe villa in a totally walled garden with electric gates at the end of a very quiet road. It has ample parking space within the premises for several vehicles, and has one garage.
What makes this Villa unique
Stunning Views from every part of the house be it in the Day or Night.The whole area is outstandingly beautiful where one can take in the the tranquillity and serenity that nature offers an experience of a lifetime, unspoilt by over development, very green with mountains and much of the land is protected trust land and the coastline is some of the most spectacular in Spain. Moraira is high end quality and a very pretty 'real town', very safe to live in and walk around at night and with a lovely old part and a newer area which has been developed very sympathetically. It has sophisticated shops and restaurants as well as local tapas bars and boutiques and of course, the marina which is gorgeous. The town is vibrant, well managed and offers that “green’ environment. There are no higher rise buildings apart from two smaller legacy buildings which are not on the tourist path. It is a very clean and green environment, with plants everywhere, and is a really pretty town! It is an area considered by the World Health Organisation to have one of the most environmentally perfect climates in the world. Moraira has been sympathetically developed, retaining all the old Spanish charm, and is known as the jewel of the Costa Blanca. The town has a blue flag award-winning, clean and safe sandy beach, as well as another lovely sandy cove at El Portet. On a clear day, magnificent views include east to Ibiza, Calpe’s famous Penon de Ifach and the stunning Montgo or 'Elephant' mountains. Access is exceptionally simple via the motorways and roads: Trains run into the heart of Valencia for day-trips and Barcelona and Madrid are within easy reach. And of yes, quality shopping areas aren’t far away in Alicante and Benidrom.

Beautiful Villa with amazing views
We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in September 2018 (14th-28th)
A very spacious villa with a fantastic fully equipped kitchen, definitely a home away from home. The naya outside was great, we used this most days to enjoy our meals outside. It was especially nice early evening having a drink and watching the sun go down. The BBQ was really good as well in the naya, we enjoyed this a few times during our stay.
The welcome pack was great as we arrived late at night.
The pool was really nice with a large terrace for sunbathing.
The beach is a few minutes’ drive. A car is a must at the villa just outside El portet, but the location is great. It was a few minutes to El portet beach and Moraira centre. We even explored Javea, Denia, Altea and Calpe, which are all a short drive away.
My only negative point is the steep driveway. We hired an automatic car, which would not be able to climb the steep driveway. Even though there is ample parking outside the villa, it was a bit tricky walking up the steps to the villa with suitcases and shopping, it would have been great to drive up the villa.
We would definitely stay again.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Could nt fault the villa equipped with everything you need very clean and spacious we had 10 in our
Will need a car and sat nav we struggled to find it
FABULOUS, BRILLIANT ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS
What a beautiful villa the view is amazing. Inside the rooms are spacuos, clean and extremely comfortable. The welcome pack was a lovely thought and very very welcoming. There is so much to do here for all ages, just one thing if your not a very good swimmer ( like me) you might find the pool rather deep but there are loads of swimming aides which I used a noodle it was so enjoyable. The rest of our party thought the deeper the better. The villa is on two levels my husband and I used the bottom rooms, our lounge led strieght onto the pool patio gorgeous. My son and girlfriend had the upstairs the couldn't get over how big it was. Moraria is so nice plenty of bars etc and so clean, we didn't actually stay on the beach as we couldn't wait to get back to the villa. We have had an absolutely fantastic holiday just didn't want to come home. Thank you to everyone who helped us to have a really enjoyable holiday. We will God willing would love to return to this exceptional beautiful villa. Thanks to Ken and Pam and Tim.
Dear June and Family
We very much appreciate your welcome review.
Glad all the family of all ages enjoyed both the Villa and Town.
You are very welcome back.
Sandra and Tim
Beautiful spacious villa with amazing views and every need catered for. Would highly recommend!
Casa de Suenos is an absolutely beautiful villa with the most amazing views. Our family of 4 had a wonderful 2 weeks at this villa and only wish we were still there!
Upon arrival the welcome pack was very well received by us all and the villa is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay.
The villa is set on a steep hillside and our rental car was not powerful enough to make it up the private driveway so we parked in front of the gates at the bottom. There are quite a few steps up to the villa if you don't go up the drive (which were a little difficult for my mum) however the views once you get up are worth a million steps.
All in all this is a fantastic villa, clearly a home from home for the owners and anyone that is lucky enough to stay there.
It would be wonderful for 2 families staying together as it can be separated into 2 different areas but was also the perfect set up for our small family giving my daughter lots of room to play (although we struggled to get her out of the gorgeous swimming pool) and my mum a little space that she well deserved!
We would fully recommend this villa to anyone looking for a tranquil stay with breathtaking views of the beautiful area of Moraira.
Lovely villa, the pool, outside space and the view were amazing.
*Wonderful * Amazing * Beautiful*
Group ( 4 adult 2 boys 11 & 8yrs)
We had the most wonderful holiday in Moraira.
We all agreed that this Villa has been our favourite, we have been holidaying in this area for the past seven years, but your villa was fantastic.
The boys loved the deep pool including their special treat of a midnight swim, once I found the pool light switch!
The oldies in our family enjoyed the shaded area to the right of the naya. And the Naya itself we enjoyed for playing cards in the evening.
We enjoyed a Sunday roast at Munroes Carvery, (2 min drive) and had a takeaway from Toppers.( 2 min drive)
The men also walked down to Bar Tropicana (20min walk)for a beer one afternoon although they called for a lift back not wanting to tackle the hill.
The Set up worked out great, the Grandparents stayed in the 2 upstairs bedrooms, and the boys had the twin room downstairs and we had the double down stairs.
The kitchen had everything you could possible need, and we also used the hot plate to cook on as well as the bbq.
We really did love the location and the villa itself, the only thing I was not too keen on was the drive WOW it's steep. I would advise a big engine car, and just to go for it! We left the cars parked out front by the gates, plenty of room.
Thank you for letting us holiday at your villa. Would defiantly return to this villa.
