About Heather Baldiston
Hi my name's Heather and I've lived in the beautiful village of La Font Den Carros for 14 years. I'm originally from London but swapped the stressful life in the UK for a more relaxed life style in Spain. I'm an English teacher in Valencia and love my job. Myself and my partner are both out at work all day. Although we live downstairs, we give you full private use of the pool and the gardens. We can be around if you need anything, from advice on the best places to visit or eat to things a little bit more serious like visiting a Dr or helping out with hire cars or general things where you may need a Spanish speaker.
Heather Baldiston purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Heather Baldiston chose La Font d'En Carròs
The area the villa sits in is outstanding, we are only a 2 minute drive or a 10 minute walk to the village but it feels like we're in the middle of the countryside. The Plana is a very family oriented area and has great sports facilities that can be enjoyed by guests. The villa is fully gated so extremely safe and very private.

Great little stay
Lovely spacious accommodation. Heather was very welcoming! Great base, for us to explore the local area.
Myself, two young sons and my mum have just stayed at Villa Flora. It was more than what we expected.
The villa was spotless and cosy. Loved the little touches like a huge selection of dvds for us to watch in the evening...... it was a home from home.
The pool was bigger than we expected, the surrounding gardens were perfect with a well equipped bbq area and the village was peaceful and picturesque.
My sons loved watching the football from our balcony and all the little parks dotted around.
Heather and tony were so accommodating. We can’t wait to come back next year!!!!!
Pool was dirty when we got there all cutlery and plates and cup all had to be cleaned and everything thing was greasy not proper sheets on beds
I’m very sorry these guests didn’t enjoy their holiday.
The pool was a little cloudy after a terrible storm but it was cleaned the next morning, unfortunately lots of sun cream makes the pool cloudy that’s why we ask guests to shower before entering the pool.
The sheets on my beds are all from M&S so I don’t understand this comment.
Sorry they felt the crockery wasn’t clean but it was definitely clean when I handed the over the villa to them.
I would ask future guests to take a minute and look at the hundreds of 5 Star positive reviews I’ve had over the last 16 years.
A lovely villa and a great base
A lovely villa in a nice location. Great private pool in a real sun spot at any time of the day. La Font gives a great taste of Spanish life and there are lots of great places to visit. Heather and Tony totally respected our privacy but were there if needed. Wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend
A great place to relax
A neat and tidy villa with a great pool. Owners very helpful. Easy travelling to surrounding areas with great beaches (especially Oliva), and historic sites. Easy walk down to the village with useful shops. Beautiful evenings on the veranda as the sun sets. Takeaway paella cooked to order from Pana Bar - delicious!
Relaxing holiday in the sun.
Just returned from a wonderful week at Villa Flora. Heather and Tony were very welcoming and even came to rescue me in the village when my sat nav gave up.
The villa and pool were exactly as advertised and I spent many hours in the gorgeous pool cooling off in the heatwave. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a relaxing break in a quiet Spanish setting with lots of lovely places to explore nearby.
La Font Deh Carros is a small very typical Spanish village and would suit those that want to visit the "Real Spain"
The villa is a 10 min walk to the centre of the village. The village has a nice square where you can sit and relax and watch the world go by. It also has many bars and restaurants.
There are 2 large supermarkets that open from 9am until 9pm except Sunday's. You will also find butchers, bakers, fish shop, chemist and several other small shops in La Font.
La Font is a very friendly safe village that most people instantly fall in love with.
The villa sits in an area of the village known as" The Plana" and is surrounded by pine trees, which offer a great shady place for families in the summer months. There are 3 small children's play areas very close to the villa. Opposite the villa is the village football pitch and a swimming pool (open mid June to August only). The football pitch is used for training several night a week by children's teams. In football season there are sometimes games on a Saturday evening or Sunday morning.
New in June 2017 is The Plana Bar. This family run bar sits at the edge of the football pitch and is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a drink while your children play safely. It offers typical Spanish food at very reasonable prices. If you would like to try a paella or Fideua these will be made to order. You can enjoy them in the bar or bring the pan home and enjoy them in the villa.
There is a tennis court and a racket ball court on "The Plana" which can be booked and used by guests.
We are in the Safor mountain range so perfect for walkers and nature lovers and only 10 min drive to the golden sandy beaches of Oliva & its historic old town. Oliva Nova Golf with its 18 hole course designed by Sebi Balistaros is 15 mins away. Gandia is 15 mins away and offers superb shopping, restaurants, wonderful squares and is steeped in history. Being just 10 mins from the A7 makes Alicante, Valencia, Javia & Benidorm with its night life and theme parks very easily accessible. It also makes the villa perfect for house hunters with easy access to all areas
