When we go to the villa from the UK we feel we have arrived in paradise.
Just a short two hour flight from London brings us away from the
wet cold winter of the UK to a very pleasant place in the sun.
The climate is benign in winter 12-18c, sunny almost every day , very pleasant in Springtime , and hot in the summer.
Some years the pool is 22-24c in late March!
The birds sing for you from early morning to nightfall.
Guests have found villa casa de paz ideal place to 'chiil out and recuperate'.
' we have been to many villas , this has been the best , we would like to come again.'
The villa is so romantic and enjoyable we did not feel we need go any where else.
Casa de Paz was a wonderful place to stay for a special break. Early March is not in the main season but everything was beautifully prepared, well maintained and clean inside and out including the lovely pool: enjoyable for a refreshing swim when one could dry off in the hot sun. It was a good time of year to be there to explore the area on foot or using the bicycles provided. We are not long distance cyclists but appreciated quiet, flat roads and being able to reach the historic city of Elche and the reserve at El Fondo for some great bird watching. We did not have a car and did not miss it, wanting to make the most of a quiet place that is off the beaten track but with everything one needs within reach.
The villa is certainly well equipped for family holidays including activities inside for times of year when it is not so good outside. March weather does vary and we were grateful for some heating in the evenings but we often had wonderful sunshine during the day and usually breakfast on the terrace with freshly picked oranges. Information given before our stay was detailed and accurate and any queries while we were there were dealt with promptly. The villa really is as good as it looks from the website photos. I would certainly recommend this property to others.
Thank you, Peter and Daisy, for a very special holiday.
I am one of the party who stayed in the Villa before LUCY J and her family arrived.
We are quite insulted that Lucy J has stated they found the Villa dirty as I can honestly say we did more than enough cleaning through out our stay and more importantly on the morning we were due to leave as we were very grateful that our late departure was being accommodated.
I can confirm that the Villa was not dirty. We kept on top of cleaning the Villa through out our stay. We swept and mopped the whole Villa on the Sunday and then again on the Tuesday morning. We were up at 7am that morning with ALL bedding was washed and hung out before the cleaner arrived around 10am and all towels that we used were put in the wash before we left at 3pm ish.
The cleaner had done 80% of her clean by lunch time with only some beds to be made, the kitchen and the hall way to be cleaned. We didn't use the bathrooms after 10am so couldn't tell you if she had cleaned them but can 100% say there were not that bad, as we also cleaned these during our stay.
Wild dogs? as far as we know a little dog from next door wondered around early one evening but was lead away easily and never saw it again.
On to our stay, we found the Villa to be ideal for what we wanted. Lovely grounds, perfect for the kids to play tennis, table tennis and just to explore when they needed a break from the pool, the pool was great.
There were a few issues regarding air con in the up stairs room but Juan did his best to get it sorted once we had reported it.
The villa could be modernised a bit inside I guess but in no way did this affect our stay.
We would defiantly consider staying here again and if we were to suggest one thing, maybe it would be better if Juan and the cleaner spoke a little English as communication with them was a bit tricky.
Thanks to Peter and Daisy for letting us stay in you Villa, we will recommend this to our friends and family.
I Booked this villa online for My family and also for the my brother's family. My brother as 20 months old twins so the grounds looked fab for them to run around.
How disappointed can you be when you turn up and discover what we did. The people before us were just leaving and they said that they had an amazing time which was a great start. Whilst I was talking outside to one of the ladies, my mum went in and had a look round, she then came and said she wasn't happy. At this point I walked in and was gobsmacked.
I walked down the corridor to the kitchen and it was filthy. There we dirty bed sheets everywhere with flies all over them. The floor was thick with dirt. The stairs to the upstairs bedroom were extremely dangerous. I went upstairs and decided to take a look. The bedroom looked like something out of a prison. The cupboards with disgusting and the babies high chairs had stains and food all over them.
I then went to investigate the other rooms. The bedrooms were dirty. The beds had holes in them and the with brown with dirt. The bathrooms hadn't been cleaned for god knows how long. The rooms were are also dark and dingy. I would not have left my dog there.
In my opinion the whole place needs gutting and having a major revamp. There is no was that I would have left the twins sleeping in the villa. We were also informed that they have a problem with wild dogs.
We are in Spain for 2 weeks and I've had to find other accommodation which has cost me more money. The amount of money that these people are charging is a joke.
The villa is beautiful and the children loved collecting the oranges for freshly squeezed juice each morning. The location is off the beaten track which was perfect for a relaxing three generation family holiday. The nearest supermarket is 1.8 km away and there are a few restaurants within the same distance. The fact that there also a games room and courts meant that we had lots of family rivalry at volleyball and table tennis. The pool is a good size and the grounds are beautifully maintained. The solar shower by the pool was a big plus with a large family. I highly recommend the paella not cheap but absolutely delicious.
Thanks for a wonderful holiday
We had a fantastic time , we took our whole family , five grandsons and our three girls with their partners. The villa is very well equipped with good supplies of dish washer tables, toilet rolls, kitchen rolls and washing powers . The beds are very comfortable and the games room and pool were excellent. We stayed for seven days and never left the villa , apart for shopping. The kids were more than happy to swim and play around the villa. Value for money is excellent considering the villa can sleep 12 plus in comfort.
We've stayed with our oldrerchildren and parents for our 25 wedding day. The villa was a very good destination.
We've lived by the pool. Everthing we need was there and even a small umbrella at the pool which we missed and we've asked for we've got in a 3 ours. We had rent 2 cars because you need that for this villa. It was a great place to be!!
