Access to the property is through a gated entrance leading to parking for several cars. There is then a flight of 8 steps up to the apartments and pool area. The three apartments have their own 'naya' (veranda) and a patio with a pathway to the pool area. All apartments are furnished in a similar design and quality.

Also you can walk to the top of the Penon de Ifach in Calpe. Worth taking a drive to are the vineyards and bodegas of the Jalon Valley where you will get some fantastic wine bargains. There are many surrounding towns within an hours drive, all well worth a visit - Moraira, Altea, Javea, Denia and Benissa are a must - as is the beautifully preserved medieval village of Guadalest up in the mountains.

If your looking for beautiful views, a great apartment and peace and quiet then this is the place. We would definitely return!
We stayed 2 weeks with our teenage daughters in mid-summer 2014. Very clean and nice apartment, peaceful surroundings and very nice pool. The owner Peter was very helpful and made our stay the perfect relaxing summer holiday.
The drive to Calpe or Benissa (5-7 km) for shopping, beach etc. was not an issue for us - we loved the tranquillity in the evenings instead.
I stayed here as a group of four adults and we were all blown away by Los Olivos. The location was perfect, peace and quiet with beautiful scenery, yet only a short drive from the town and beaches. The spacious apartment had everything we needed for a relaxing break; I loved breakfast and dinner on the the veranda. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and we were well looked after by owners Peter and Angela.
I don't normally feel moved to write a holiday review but in this case we had to register our complete satisfaction with Los Olivos and record our thanks to Peter & Angela for their part in facilitating an idyllic family holiday.
We are a family of 5 (Mum, Dad & 3 young boys) who enjoyed the bigger Apartment 3 facing the pool area. It was such a pleasure to wake up each morning, open the 2 sets of double doors to the veranda and enjoy the outside space, the pool area immediately in front and the view of the surrounding hillsides. The apartment itself is generous with space, fitted out to a high standard and maintained in pristine condition - as is the rest of the property.
The location of Los Olivos was ideal for us; it was great to retreat into the hills behind Calpe after a day/evening out in the busy town for beach/dinner. We would not hesitate to return here for another holiday to add to the fantastic memories of our first visit.
Beautiful Hideaway, clean, lot´s of space, amazing view from the pool area, perfect location for travelling around the area and sightseeing; needs a car, because it´s about 2 km from the freeway; most of the time quiet (sometimes you can here the sound of driving cars from the freeway - it depends on the wind direction, but nothing serious...). We spend more than 3 weeks there and had a great time with the kids at the pool and the nearby sea. And don´t miss to have dinner at the Casa del Maco - it´s just 5 min. away...- great :-))
Nous avons passé 15 jours exceptionnels avec nos deux filles.
La maison est entourée de champs d'oliviers , d'amandiers et de vignes .
Le matin ,on se réveillait avec le chant des cigales.
L'appartement est décoré avec goût et bien équipé, sa terrasse
couverte très agréable pour prendre ses repas et se détendre.
Le jardin est magnifique et très bien entretenu , la piscine avec
sa superbe vue est parfaite pour se rafraîchir et se relaxer sur les transats
Merci à Peter et Angela pour leur accueil et leur gentillesse.
