We have strict NO SMOKING Policy. No weekend lets.

Surrounding Area: The villa has spectacular panoramic views stretching to the Albufera and the Mediterranean Sea beyond. The surrounding hillside is filled with orange and almond orchards and is perfect for walks or biking (very popular in the area). With the superb climate in the area you will find plenty to do outdoors. The villa itself is just a half hour from Valencia; a city where ancient and modern cultures thrive side by side. The port area is the headquarters for the prestigious `Americas Cup` Yacht Race which the city hosted last year and will again in 2009.

Villa Levante is close to the small town of Montserrat and just a 10-15 minute drive to either of the nearby larger towns of Torrent or Piccassent, which have Metro stations for quick,cheap & easy access to the city and the motorway (A7). The town of Cheste is just over 20 minutes away - home to the Ricardo Tormo Circuit for racing fans and the El Bosque Golf Course is also close by in Chiva.

Valencia: The city of Valencia the third largest in Spain, is a vibrant and beautiful city, proud of its historical heritage, clean beaches and fantastic fiestas. The city centre is just 30 minutes away, easily accessible on the metro, with the nearest station (Torrent Avinguda) only 15 mins away. A return ticket costs a little under 4euros and a great way to explore the city. Some of the examples of the citys wonderful architecture are within easy reach if you disembark at Colon station. These include the remains of the city walls 'the Torres de Serranos & the Torres de Quart', the cathedral complex, and the 16th century Lonja de la Seda(Silk Exchange) The Mercado Central(the Central Market) and La Estacion del Norte (The North Station) a large modernist building of avant-garde design, a great achievement for its time.

There are many wonderful beaches, with numerous earning the coveted blue flag. The city itself has its own beaches of Las Arenas and La Malvarrosa, which are connected by a sea front promenade. Both are readily accessible by metro from the city.

There are also superb beaches near El Saler which is close to the Albufera nature reserve.,itself a vast lagoon surrounded by rice paddy fields. The area offers many varied and beautiful nature walks. Fishing, however, on the lake is strictly by permit only.

Water & beach activities are a way of life in Valencia including sailing, surfing, kite surfing, jet skiing, scuba diving, windsurfing, fishing and just about anything else you can think of.

Peaceful and spacious, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Tremendous infastructure for this large detatched villa in the countryside with wonderful views across the orange groves and olives towards the coastline. Sleeping up to ten people on two floors, everything is provided for you. Fabulous pool with outside lighting and various patio/terraced areas and all within a short drive to Montserrat where you find all the bars/restaurants, chemists, banks, supermarkets etc. We really enjoyed the Sunday Market where you can find just about anything. The highlight of our stay was probably driving to Torrent (which was easy) and getting on the metro into Valencia; the 'old city' was lovely and the Cathedral absolutely fabulous.

Generally clean but outside space, kitchen and furnishings need updating.

  • 2 of 5

The surrounding area is very 'authentically' Spanish and the setting very rural but the villa, which was once probably a lovely retreat, has become shabby and neglected. From the cracked and broken concrete of the entrance, the worn tiles in the pool, cracked and broken sunbeds with ancient covers to the rusty mops and brushes left outside the door the overall first impression was shabby.

Inside the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen were clean but everything was worn, broken dining chairs, broken cutlery drawer, broken shower head,ancient TV with only one channel, tepid water, building material lying about,access to 'laundry area' hazardous.

The pool was cleaned once whilst we were there but we had some rain and, because of the uneven surface, puddles of dirty water collected near the pool which we had to clear before using it.

We chose a rural place and, for the price, did not expect five star, but it is a shame that this place seems to have been allowed to fall below basic standards. If the owner is paying other people to maintain the property then she should sack them!

Relaxing, chilled out holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxed holiday, it's so peaceful and tranquil at the villa. We ventured into Montserrat on occasion for breakfast at El Dolcet cafe.

We did prefer to relax by the pool but we drove into Valencia and took the chidren to L'Oceanografic. What a wonderful day out we had. We also drove to Cullera and spent a couple of days on the beach there. Well appointed and spacious and we even had our dinner watching the Spain v Italy Euro game. Very entertaining!!

We shall be returning again.

Spacious, luxurious and very tranquil

  • 5 of 5

The house was our excellent getaway from the hard working environment we left at home. The pool was very clean and was cleaned very regularly by a nice pool-lady (sorry, forgot your name).

There is enough space to park two cars in the shadow. A cool sea-breeze blows through the porch, making it easy to escape from the heat.

When the wind changed to an inland magma-hot wind, the pool was there to avoid drying up to a sun-bleached skeleton. Just wish we could've found the remotes for the A/C. Ah well...

There is enough to see in the nearby towns and of course there's Always Valencia to visit.

The house has a pleasant view on the Albufeira in the distance and at night the starry skies gave us a view we usually can not enjoy in the light-polluted cityscape that western Netherlands is.

The kitchen is modern, spacious and well-equipped. There is plenty of storage room in the bedrooms, so you can quit living from a suitcase whilst on holidays.

The road in the urbanisation is very bad in places, but as long as your keep your speed upwards of 30 km/h and avoid the bottomless pits that are scattered on the road, you won't notice much.

But I'm nitpicking: the house is great, the location is great, the showers (in the bathroom, I mean) are powerful and with a large enough fridge it is all you ever need to fall in love with Spain.

The only downside is: we had great problems adjusting to our usual work-rhythm back home and became a bit homesick for Villa Levante because of the great time we'd spent there.

A true Mediterranean gem!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a short stay in this glorious villa!

Secluded, quiet, and stunning - the ultimate 'chill-out' getaway!

The house itself was clean, light and provided everything needed, including ample storage space. It was clean - which from past experiences of renting villas haven't always been the case.

The bbq area and pool were superb.

A true Spanish experience!!

Will be holidaying there again - definitely longer next time.

Thank you

Fantastic holiday and accommodation

  • 5 of 5

for those of you wanting an idyllic rural location, with your own enclosed villa with outside pool, superb accommodation and facilities, then look no further than Villa Levante. We have just had a weekk's break there and it was faultless. Only 20 minutes from Valencia airport, you are soon in your own peaceful world with excellent views out over the Mediterranean. The bbq area was used every day with fresh meat and fish being purchased from the local supermarket.

If you want the hustle and bustle of places like Benidorm, then Villa Levante is not for you. If however, you want to relax, soak up the sun, be close enough to a city and their excellent transport links to the centre of the city, then look no further that Villa Levante.

Definitely going back again!!!

Villa Levante is located near the village of Monserrat in a rural urbanisation surrounded by orange and almond groves. The villa has over 220sq. m of living space and a large private garden of over 2000sq.m. with a private pool and large terrace set on the upper level to the property. There is also parking space and access at this level. The lower level of the garden also has vehicular access and parking and a terrace and BBQ area. There are lovely views overlooking the Albufera lake and the sea beyond. The village of Monserrat is a 5 minute drive and holds a weekly market and numerous fiestas. The larger town of Torrent is 15 mins by car, lively and busy and you can get into the city of Valencia on the Metro. There are numerous golf courses in the area, the Moto GP circuit in Cheste and Valencia also hosts the prestigious sailing tournament 'The Americas' Cup' not to mention the F1 European Grand Prix.

Golf: There are several courses available including El Bosque, Escorpion & Manises, or even a round at El Saler which was voted the 5th best in Spain in April 2005 by Golf Digest Magazine. Two newer courses are just a short drive from the villa. An 18 hole course in Picassent and a 9 hole Pitch & Putt near Torrent.
