6 of us stayed here is September 2015 and thought this villa was brilliant. The pool area in particular really impressed us. Unfortunately it was a bit windy on the terrace, but the pool room was great for meals and we had an excellent week. Sylvia was extremely helpful and provided some good tips on the local area. All in all a fabulous holiday. Thank you Sylvia and Kevin!
Stayed here with my family of 10, there was more than enough space for all of us. Our host Sylvia couldn't do enough for us giving us a warm welcome. The villa was amazing and as stated by a previous review the pictures don't do it justice. I would highly recommend this villa we all had a great time.
The house was simply amazing, we were a large family group in Spain for a wedding and it was perfect. The kitchen and dining room were great for the family and the kids all had a fantastic time in the pool and there was lots of other things for them to do in the house as well. The views from the pool are stunning and the local town and beach in Canet very picturesque, all in all an amazing holiday.
We were pleasently surprised upon our arrival, after we had a two-day journey in the car form Holland. The house is spacious and full of luxe with plenty of bathrooms, large bedrooms and two kitchens. The owners gave us a warm welcome and were very communicative on every question we asked. The house is very clean and easy to use. Everything you need is available. The pool and terraces are great. We had a wonderful relaxing two weeks in Gilet and enjoyed the surroundings and Valencia a lot. The house is very suitable for big families with enough private space for everyone. Thank you so much for having us in your wonderful house.
An absolutely fantastic stay!
The description of the property is accurate - a beautiful house in a beautiful location. If anything, the owner is a bit modest with the description as to what the house offers!
The level of comfort of the accommodation was very high and the property kept very clean.
We greatly appreciated the little extra services the house offered - WiFi and even a PC permitting me to be in contact if needed.
I am the owner's cousin and we stayed with her family when they were living there last year. I can't begin to come up with enough adjectives to describe it's position or describe the feeling of space on the terrace... very private but with the most spectacular panoramic views on three sides where the ground drops away. If you're searching for peace and privacy, then you have it here in spades but it is also well-placed for getting around being only a short distance from the motorway. It must be said that the car trip up to Casa Calderona is not for the faint hearted, but what a reward when you arrive!! Having been the owner's family home, the house is beautifully appointed and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is considering staying there.
