A really special hideaway with beautiful mountain views.
Richard and Martha are lovely hosts. We spent most of our ten day stay on the terrace playing cards with our two sons or swimming in the pool. A trip down to the river is a must. The beach at Piles near Oliva is lovely and low key. If your looking for a chilled out holiday that feels like real Spain then villa Majones is a great choice.
Wonderful stay in a truly secluded location
We loved the week that we spent in Martha and Richard's villa with our two young boys. The villa has everything you need, and the terrace is truly stunning - such seclusion and beauty are very hard to find. The pool was brilliant, a great size and we spent much of our day in there.
We found that we needed very little else to occupy our time, but did go to Kiko beach and for a swim in the river in the valley. Both were recommendations from Martha and Richard, who were very welcoming and helpful, yet unobtrusive hosts. The boys adored their two dogs Rufus and Lya, who were a delight.
Stunning Location for a Summer Family holiday
This was the most scenic location we have ever been for our Summer holidays. The pictures really don't do it justice and if you are looking for relaxation, peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings then you wont find better than this.
We found plenty of things to do in the area with a multitude of hiking trails at our door step and the beaches in Gandia are not too far of a drive away. A 15-20 min hike down the mountain brings you to the Serpis river where we spent many hours exploring along the disused railway, going through tunnels, swimming in the river and climbing up to the old Moorish castle in L'Orxa. We also found the old rail a great place for going for a run as its fairly flat. For the more adventurous runner the roads back up to and around the villa are a great challenge.
The villa is very comfortable but basic and 1 bathroom between 6 people was a challenge.
Like many people before have said, the owners Martha and Richard were superb hosts and were available and willing to help anytime we needed them.
Finally the villa comes with its own resident dog, Rufus. He is the one of the friendliest dog you could meet. The kids loved him. He was always there to greet us with his wagging tail when we drove in. He liked to accompany us down the trail and swim with the kids in the river. However, he never followed me when I went for a run - wise move on those mountain roads.
We plan to return.
An unspoilt beautiful part of Spain with peace, tranquility and nature-perfect relaxation holiday
Coming from the West of Cumbria we live 25 minutes away Keswick in England and love the beauty of the mountains and we're thrilled to arrive at our Spanish equivalent of the Lake District up in the Mountains of Villalonga. It has everything you could possibly need of you choose total relaxation or want to travel and enjoy the excitement of Aqualandia brilliant water park, Munda Mar in Benidorm just an hours drive away. There is also the option of beautiful Gandia beach just 30 minutes drive or simply enjoy the brilliant privacy of your own pool all day in the beautiful surroundings. One thing I must say is what really made our holiday was the owners of our villa Martha and Richard who couldn't have been more welcoming from the moment we met them. They gave us just the right amount of attention and were so helpful and kind at every opportunity they really made our holiday! And their lovely dogs Rufus and Lya made our girls holiday too. Beautiful, tranquil holiday, what more could you want!
Petit coin de paradis perché dans la montagne
La villa Majones est un véritable petit coin de paradis. Pour les amoureux de la nature, il ne faut avoir aucune hésitation ! La montagne entoure la villa et sa piscine. Martha est au petit soin pour ses hôtes. Discrète mais présente si besoin. Nos 2 filles de 6 et 9 ans se sont éprises de Rufus, chien de Richard et Martha, très attachant. La piscine est superbement bien exposée et on y rentre comme dans un bain ! L éducation à l environnement et au gaspillage avec les enfants prend toute sa siginication dans cette villa raccordée à l eau de pluie.
It is for us a great pleasure to see people relax and unwind in this lovely setting.
We enjoyed this family's stay and look forward to see them again sometime in the future.
Fantastic villa, gorgeous views and so relaxing
We had a fantastic stay at the villa. We have been to the area several times before, but never stayed at such a tranquil, beautiful place.
The views were amazing and it was lovely to have dinner outside and see the stars come out after dark.
The girls (aged 6 and 6) loved the surroundings and the pool especially as it was warm, safe and helped improve their diving!
Martha and Richard are lovely and are available to ask questions, advice if you ever need it and nothing is too much trouble.
I would highly recommend this villa and will hopefully be back soon with my sister and her family.
The perfect place to chill, relax and spend quality time as a family.

One of the things that Richard and I enjoyed the most is to see our
Guests going back home looking relaxed and radiant. The fact that they spent a lot of the time relaxing by the pool or reading and enjoying the cool breezes of the River Terrace, having BbQs at home, after coming back from the beach or touring seems to contribute to it, I think.
The way of life in this part of Spain is still very 'Spanish' and relaxed, which makes it pleasurable to try the local food and take part in the many colorful
Summer festivities of the local towns.
We are blessed with the families and couples who come to Villa Majones.
They are people who look after their environment, treat the villa as their own
homes with care and respect. This family was a pleasure to meet and it will
be a pleasure to see them when they decide to come back to holiday in Villa Majones again.
