About the property

2 bedrooms, beautiful terraced gardens, mineral pool, 1km to beach

Total relaxation is on offer in this wonderfully located villa with stunning views across the bay. Soak up the tranquil atmosphere under the large Caribbean style parasol, by the 4 x 6 metre mineral swimming pool. Have a siesta on the double hammock, shaded by palm trees. BBQ on the back terrace and dine under the jasmin gazebo, on a hand crafted wooden table, that seats up to 10 people. For more initimate dining, we have made a Gaudi style mosaic table, situated on the front terrace. With two comfortable lounge chairs and an amazing sea view you can dine outdoors in style. The herb garden is situated near to the BBQ and the kitchen so, choose from a variety of fresh Mediterranean herbs to enhance your culinary delights.

The beautiful terraced gardens stretch over 500 square metres and include; 16 palm trees, four citrus trees, a cactus garden, herb garden and several terraces dedicated to Mediterranean flowers and plants. Bougainvillea, Bird of Paradise, Russelia, Jasmin and Honeysuckle are positioned around and throughout the gardens. Where-ever you wander in the 7th Heaven, you are immersed in a sensory explosion of colour, perfume and sea breezes.

The 7th Heaven hosts some beautiful artwork, furniture and unique constructions. Sculpture, paintings, ceramics, mosaics, relief and woodwork are sensitively positioned throughout the villa, outdoor terraces and gardens. We have also designed (for your maximum comfort) and built; the jasmin gazebo, the Caribbean parasol, the dramatic entrance gate, mosaic & wooden tables and most recently, the sculptural car port.

The villa has two very comfortable bedrooms with a superking size bed and two single beds. Both rooms have lovely views of the sea, air-conditioning and are individually furnished with handmade items and Kashmir rugs. There are two bathrooms; upstairs and downstairs near the pool. The bathroom upstairs has been completely remodernised in 2017, with porceline floor to ceiling tiles, a walk in shower and a sculptural tap and wash basin. The second bathroom is well positioned, near the pool, with a small bath, shower, washing facilities and decorated with traditional Spanish tiles.

A large wooden, consertina gate secures the property and the 50m square, bamboo car port protects your vehicle in the hot summer sun. There is also plenty of storage under the car port for beach equipment and bicycles.

All the guests are greeted by the owners, Ollie and Lindsay. We will show you around the 7th Heaven and provide you with two sets of keys, after receiving the security deposit. We leave a generous welcome pack for all our guests so, you can immediately relax without having to go shopping! The welcome pack includes; soft drinks, fresh milk & bread, cheese, ham, fruit and vegetables. Bottles of wine and a cocktail bar is also included! All the food basics eg. oil, coffee, tea, pasta rice etc will be left for you in the food cupboard. If you have any special requests, please let us know.

We discreetly come to the villa, early in the morning to maintain the pool and gardens, up to 3 times a week. You can also contact us directly throughout your stay and as we live locally, we can respond immediately to any issues you may have. Otherwise, you will not be disturbed, enabling you to enjoy your holiday with maximum privacy and peace.

The villa is located close to the beach (15 min walk) and local transport services. The train is only a 10 minute walk and offers a very reliable hourly service ,to Denia and Benidorm. A local supermarket is a 5 minute drive away from the villa or you can have your food delivered online by Mercadona (website is in Spanish). There are numerous local restaurants within a 15 minute walk or a few minutes drive. On the local La Olla beach, there are two Spanish bars/restaurants (cheringuitos) that are open throughout the summer season. If you love dining on the beach, next to the sea, with a great view and good local cuisine, this is a must.

The surrounding area offers the choice of sandy and stony beaches or mountains within a few minutes drive. If you want to explore a local Spanish city, the toll gate to the motorway is 5 minutes drive from the 7th Heaven. The AP7 takes you north to Valencia within a 90 minute drive and south to Alicante within 40 minutes.

Another fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic time in the 7th Heaven.

This was our 4th time of visiting and as always, Ollie & Lindsay made us extremely welcome with a fantastic arrival pack of food & drinks all included for us.

The home is on a hillside overlooking Altea bay and has an unfettered view to the sea.

There are 2 or 3 seating areas in the upper part of the property, inclusing a Jasmine covered pergola, each with brilliant views and of course, the excellent poolside with comfortable chairs & loungers.

It is quiet (at the end of a cul-de-sac), extremely safe (neighbours are lovely), clean and very very comfortable. It also has a cooling breeze during those hot hot Spanish days and has perfect positioning for watching the sun set over the blue Mediterranean.

Altea itself has old and new towns and can easily be got to either by car or by rail as the station is literally just down the road.

Don't think about renting this place, do it...I absolutely promise you'll love it.

We'll be back again next year for sure!

A Perfect Family stay!

  • 5 of 5

7th Heaven, a fantastic Villa that is certainly deserving of its name!. On arrival, we were greeted by its friendly owners, Ollie and Lyndsey, who had kindly well stocked the property with some lovely provisions to start our holiday off. After giving us a quick tour, they left us to our own devices and we immediately settled into our new holiday home. Situated on a (not too steeply inclined) hill and about 200M from the sea, the Villa sits on a private and not overlooked plot at the end of a winding residential road and is a only few minutes by car from the main road leading into Altea's centre. The Town has a great selection of Restaurants and bars and at the same time being both cosmopolitan but not too Touristy. The Villas upper living area and and poolside patios have simply amazing views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, where my Wife and I spent every evening having a drink and not wishing for our all too brief 7 day stay to come to an end!. The mineral water swimming pool meant that after a long day playing in it, our two children (aged thirteen & nine) left it refreshed with no stinging eyes from any Chlorine. The living accommodation was spacious, stylishly decorated and spotlessly clean. Any downsides?, I cant think of any, except that due its split level design it may not be suitable for people who have difficulty climbing stairs. However, this is pretty self explanatory on the properties description. A perfect stay and we look forward to going back there in the very near future, thank you once again Ollie and Lyndsey!

Immaculate attractive villa with superb views, enchanting garden, private pool and great location!

  • 5 of 5

A great rental!

Communication with the owners was friendly, welcoming, professional and helpful, booking was easy.

Inside the villa was spotless, comfortable, charming, spacious and well equipped. The owners left a fantastic welcome pack of food and drink. This made a huge difference to us especially as non-drivers (which we mentioned to the owners and they made sure we had plenty of drinks, to save us carrying heavy stuff back from the local supermarket). They also left an abundance of other food and drink - much appreciated and really helpful. The kitchen has all you need and the herb garden was a bonus! The owners’ individuality can be seen in the interesting artwork, furniture and sculptures in and around the villa. The apple TV was handy – lots of major channels/many languages.

There are several cosy outside spots to sit and relax and enjoy the amazing views, and each vantage point has its own charm, with attractive furniture, lanterns, lights, plants and flowers to be enjoyed. The garden really gives off the tropical, holiday feel you need to relax and forget all your worries! The pool is nice, gets the sun and has great views. The nearby bathroom area is also handy.

Altea is a nice spot, esp the old town with its cobbled streets and hilltop church (worth the climb), and squares full of loads of places to eat and drink. You can get to the old town on the tram from Olla Altea, which is about 10 minutes walk from the villa, although quite hilly and best done in cooler hours. There are other local towns that can be reached on public transport from the same tram stop (Calpe, Denia) and no doubt lots more options if you drive. But you can easily spend a week relaxing by the pool!

This was a great rental and highly recommended. The owners are really nice, relaxed, welcoming and laid back and they were fun to chat to as we checked in and out. Otherwise they leave you to enjoy your holiday, but you know they'd be happy to answer any questions and help you out if you need anything or wanted local advice. They even called up the taxi firms to make sure we made our connections to the airport (after one taxi firm lost the booking we'd made the night before!) We did make the flight in the end thanks to their help! :-)

A really nice couple with a lovely villa and the best views – whether you want to explore the area or just away from it all, you won’t regret a stay at the 7th heaven! Thanks Ollie and Lindsay and hope to see you again!

Fabulous fortnight in 7th Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have returned last weekend from two weeks in this wonderful villa. We were looking for somewhere to totally chill out and relax without much noise or any interruptions and the villa completely meet that requirement. The villa was just as advertised in fact I’d say it was under sold on the web site. It was clean and well maintained had everything we needed for our stay and more besides. We were met on our arrival by Ollie and Lindsay who were the most perfect host very friendly and welcoming and very helpful but at the same time not overpowering. They made it plain that if we needed any help with anything we were to ask and we did have a couple of very minor issues, which they sorted quickly and without any inconvenience to our holiday.

We had never been to Altea before and was very pleasantly surprised with the area. Not over touristy but full of Spanish culture and we certainly intend to go back. Given the time of year late September, early October we felt the weather was far better than we expected and this helped some very hot days.

I would definitely recommend this villa and the welcoming owners

Magical views and gardens - stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! Such a lovely stay. Very peaceful, very beautiful. We loved the pool and panoramic views. Lindsay and Ollie were very welcoming, loved their very special home, and we didn't want to leave😊. Managed well without a car, used the tram, just ten minutes walk,mand could access other resorts easily. Can't wait to book again. Thanks Ollie and Lindsay, see you soon.

Tabb - Exceptionally Good

  • 5 of 5

Thus was a return visit. We stayed here 2 years ago and thought it was superb then, this visit it was even better with improvements being made, and little upgrades here and there.

We appreciate the quality.of the furnishings, the generosity of Ollie & Lyndsey and of course those wonderful views.

Our favourite spot was the rear terrace with the now lush covering of Jasmine over the pergola,, with it's dappled shade, beautiful views and intoxicating smells, it really lives up to its name.

The ancient Arabs named this place Altaya, which meant 'Health for all', referring to the extra mild micro climate that this little bay offers. Today, Altea is a working fishing town, with four working ports stretching from the port of Mascarat to the port of Altea. Often called 'the pearl of Costa Blanca' Altea has several churches built with the traditional blue domes which overlook the old town centre. Meander through the narrow cobbled streets of the historic city, hosting many galleries and a lot of street cafes and MIchelin star restaurants. Altea has managed to remain untouched by large discotheques and loud night life, though you can find all of this within 20 km in Benidorm. If you prefer stunning mountain walking, the Bernia mountains are less than a 15 minute drive away, offering a range of destinations to hike, bike and explore.

Other Activities: Jetski, snorkelling, canoeing, paddle boarding, boat hire, pedalos, yoga. Sunbeds and parasols are for hire on all the local beaches.

Golf: The golf resort Don Cayo is about 2 km away. Several other golf courses are within a 30 minute drive.

Ski: There is a waterski lift in Benidorm.
