Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom,1 on suite sleeps up to 8 with a sofabed

This typically Spanish villa, set in a valley surrounded by orange groves and pine covered mountains, is located approximately 1 mile from the local village in a secluded location. The villa is reached through secure gates along a palm lined drive which has parking for several cars. There are steps leading up to the the shaded terrace and living area. The swimming pool is 8m x 4m with a paella/BBQ house situated by the pool area. There is a full size enclosed tennis court surrounded by orange trees. The large, well maintained gardens contain various fruit trees and shrubs with plenty of places to sit and relax. I live on site in seperate accomodation for help and advice if required. Renters have complete exclusivity to the pool and tennis court. There is sky satellite television fitted.

There is a games room with a pool table, music, and a child friendly dart board. My wife is an aroma therapist who offers various forms of massage who also offers a yoga class on a Sunday morning for those interested.

Location Information: This is an idyllic setting in a beautiful rural location. There are stunning mountain views and pleasant walks; the area is flat enough for cycling or mountain biking in the surrounding pine covered mountains.

The village boasts 3 restaurants which serve the menu of the day, there is a supermarket, baker, a local chemist and a hairdressing salon. I also have access to another villa if i am booked so please enquire

Attractions in the area: The town of Gandia is 20 minutes drive away and has excellent shops and supermarkets. As this is an area where Spanish people live and work the town is open all year, unlike more tourist based towns that partially close out of season. Gandia beach is reputedly the best in Europe with its white sandy beach and beautiful promenade.

Inland are vineyards, orange and almond groves and quiet Spanish towns for those who like to explore.

The nearest beach, Tavernes Playa, is only 15 minutes drive and the town of Tavernes de la Valldigna is 10 minutes away. Alzira, with its busy shops, restaurants and nightlife is 8 minutes away.

A visit to Valencia city, hosts of the Americas Cup 2007, is recommended. Here you can visit the Oceanographic and science museum to name but two of the new tourist attractions. Benidorm, with its teeming night life and Terra Mitica theme park is an hour’s drive away. There is a new 18 hole golf cource called La Galiana

15 Mar 2009 - 19 Mar 2009 Date to be confirmed

This is one of the best-known and most emblematic festivals in Spain which continues to grow in popularity each year. Tens of thousands of visitors join the whole city of Valencia in this festival of fire, in a mood of excitement and gaiety. Fallas are giant figures built of paper mache, wood and wax, and which represent personalities and current events of the day. They may be symbolic or satirical in theme, realistic or comic-strip in style. Certainly they are elaborate, built with consummate care in different workshops around the city, over the course of the year. Known locally as 'Ninots', they go up in flames on StJoseph's Night (19 March), reaching a blazing climax near midnight, when flames leap skywards all over the city centre and thousands of fireworks discharge over the rooftops. Events unfold over several days beforehand, divided into Exaltation (Offering of Flowers),

About Robert

I have been renting for 11 years and have many renters who return here year after year some of which have become friends. I live on site with my wife who is a qualified therapist and yoga teacher . We have a seperate 3 bedroom accomadation. I look after the gardens and keep the swimming pool clean i also have chickens and a very frendly dog . Most of the people who stay here ask me about the area and advice on where to go and visit and have been very happy that we live here.

Robert purchased this villa in 2002

Why Robert chose Alzira

Read the write ups its a nice place just to switch off and chill and is very child friendly and safe

What makes this villa unique

The villa is in the sun all day with places beneath the orange tree's if you need the shade. There are plenty of walks in the mountains, the village is about 20 minuets walk or cycle there.

Review for villa

  • 5 of 5

First class villa that we enjoyed very much, a real put up your feet and relax place. Owner was very helpful and had a nice welcome pack for us to get started on. The bikes were great for going around and taking in some of the mountain views. I would recommend this villa to any family looking for a real get away from it all holiday.

Amazing villa and location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful villa, everything you need for a family of 6, made even more special by Robert (owner) and Sunny, Roxy and Roger - the villa pets. Nothing to much trouble and lots of helpful advise.

The location is superb, in the mountains with beautiful orange trees all around.

15 mins to supermarkets and beach - all sand with a gentle slope into the warm sea.

Would definitely recommend and hope to return again

Well equipped and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxed away from it all holiday. Owner and his wife around if you need them but leave you in peace if you don’t. Fantastic pool but would be a bit of a worry if you had little ones as it’s quite deep, it was ideal for us. Every where neat and well maintained. The tennis court was very tempting but we had a very hot week so resisted. All in all would definitely recommend and go again.

Villa Rosa is a wonderful relaxing home from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at villa Rosa. Robert and Deborah were incredibly helpful when needed but kept out of our way when not!

The pool is perfect! So relaxing with stunning views into the mountains. I would say this is perfect for you if you are looking for a relaxing, get away from it all break rather than one full of activities as the villa is quite remote and it’s a good 30 minutes to the beaches and towns.

The villa itself is well equipped and comfortable.

It’s worth noting that the villa doesn’t have mains water so it is not suitable for drinking although absolutely fine for washing etc and there was plenty of hot water for showers! Just be aware that the nearest village is a fair walk away, not a walk you want to do with heavy water bottles so worth stocking up at the nearest supermarket before you arrive!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, i am pleased you all enjoyed your stay in Villa Rosa. just to say that although the water is not on the mains it is ok for drinking in small amounts but i prefer renters to drink bottled water to be 100% safe.

Super Haus mit tollen Vermietern

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus bietet alles was man braucht. Die Lage ist sehr gut, Natur aber auch dicht an Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Die Vermieter sind die nettesten und hilfsbereitesten Leute die wir je im Urlaub kennen gelernt haben. Das Haus kann ich jedem der es buchen möchte empfehlen. Auf diesen Weg liebe Grüße an Robert und seine Familie von Tom, Fon und Uli
