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.

'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.

The kitchen has a full range of cutlery, crockery, pots, pans, glasses, gadgets, etc.THE GARDEN - Vista Gloriosa has substantial grounds with a variety of trees and ornamental beds.

Excellent villa, beautiful pool and views across Spanish countryside

Ace villa, you will need a car but don’t let that put you off. Lots more to see than just Valencia... Cuenca is an excellent day out and not too far!

Beautiful villa with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the villa which was perfect in every way. The kitchen is superbly equipped, the furnishings tasteful and comfortable. A great deal of thought has been given to what visitors might need and it was very clean

it's warm in July! We spent most time outside on the spacious terrace or in the pool or making trips to the beach, the city or to the surrounding villages and countryside.

Would definitely recommend and hope to return.

Fantastic stay, amazing pool and great location

  • 5 of 5

A really well kept and well equipped villa. The pool was wonderful and it was so relaxing sitting on the balcony and looking out at the wonderful views.

The villa has lots to do for families , with games, and a wide range of DVDs.

It was easy to get into Valencia for a change of pace, you will need a car though. We enjoyed visiting the great beaches which were fantastic for young children as well as the aquarium . The centre of Valencia is beautiful , we ate wonderful tapas near the bullring and enjoyed looking at the architecture and also the great shops.

A wonderful relaxing place with great facilities, well worth a visit.

Thanks to Jan and Phil

Beautiful get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Great house with everything you could possibly need, and plenty of space for our toddler to charge about. Stunning location overlooking the orange fields - we barely left the villa and poolside!

Amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time there, the pool and views are both wonderful and the house is clean and well equipped. The only suggestion I would have would be to provide some fans, as although we knew there wasn't air conditioning it was still hot in August and would've been great to have a couple of fans to cool the bedrooms at night. Otherwise I would recommend this villa and stay there again - there's great villages around and it's great to be just 30mins from Valencia.

Owner's Response: Hi Claire, I'm glad you had such an enjoyable stay. There is a fan. I will leave it in a more obvious position. As the house is light and airy in general, I think it is only around August that some people look for one. Please come again. Best wishes - Phil

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. 7 mins drive to the town of Chiva with supermarkets, restaurants and wider facilities including railway station. Park here for free and for 3 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.
