Guestbook comments from the owner

'Our stay at Vista Gloriosa was practically perfect for all concerned. It is a beautiful villa which has obviously been thoroughly thought out and equipped for guests. The views were stunning and my 5 year old daughter enjoyed the pool and the better than usual DVD and CD collection' Gary, Bournemouth 2007.

'We had a great time in your villa and it was everything we could have hoped for. It is in a gorgeous location and perfect for relaxing after a day in the city.' Katy, N. Ireland 2007

'Just back from our holidays and we would like to thank you for the wonderful stay we had in your villa. Everything was just perfect, the views were wonderful and the villa first rate. This was our first villa holiday and we are sure it will be the first of many. Thanks again and we will have lots of happy memories of sitting with a glass of wine overlooking the stunning countryside.' Chris, Scunthorpe 2007.

A real home from home , everything you need is there. Very clean, gardens and pool spotless.

Chris very pleasant, was helpful to meet at the petrol station close by as we never have found it, but set the satnav to location and had no problem.

Would definitely recommend if you want yo get away from the hustle and bustle a real taste of Spain.

We (two adults) had a wonderfull time in a fantastic villa, which was very comfortable. It has a fantastic view over the surroundings. The kitchen was very well equiped.

The contacts with the owner were pleasant.

During our stay the wheather was very good, only sun and temperatures between 25 and 32 degree Celsius.

Great Villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This villa is located in a great location approximately 30-40mins outside Valencia. The views are absolutely fantastic and it is the perfect place to relax! The villa itself is extremely well equipped with the likes of satellite TV, Wifi, and all the mod cons which made the stay very comfortable.

We found that it only cost 45 Euros to get a taxi to Valencia, which between three of us was pretty good. The Old Town in Valencia is a must visit as it has a number of nice restaurants, bars and buildings. The Valencia beach is also not much further away and is so vast you can't fail to find a nice spot.

If you time your visit right the surrounding towns also provide their own treats with Bull runs and the traditional Tomato Throwing festivals. Unfortunately we just missed these but we won't next time!

I thoroughly recommend both the Villa and the area of Valencia and will definitely be visiting again.

Vista Gloriosa sits in a stunning setting, nestling in the Valencian hills in tne hamlet of 'Loma de los Caballeros'. 3 mins drive to the authentic Spanish village of Godelleta for bars and basic shops. 5 mins drive to the town of Chiva with supermarkets, restaurants and wider facilities including railway station. Park here for free and for 2 euros take the train to the stunning nearby city of Valencia (about 30 mins). Visit the historic centre or the amazing new 'City of Arts & Science'. Wander through the astounding Jardin del Turia, not so much a park, more a world of opportunities, but once a riverbed! Alternatively, drive inland to the spectacular nearby mountains and lakes. Or perhaps play a round of golf at the nearby El Bosque championship course. Or you may prefer the Bonaire Centre with shops, Cinemas, Bowling, Restaurants - think Bluewater! Also, the Valencia (Ricardo Tormo) MotoGP Circuit is minutes away and the F1 GrandPrix is easy too. The choice is yours.

Other Activities: Motorcycling GP, Shopping, Beaches, Sailing, Fiestas.
