This traditional Spanish villa has been beautifully refurbished. It is a fantastic home-from-home featuring 3 good sized bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms. The main inside living space is open-plan offering a large living/ dining/ kitchen area. This creates the perfect, sociable living environment for cooking, dining and relaxing in. The kitchen is fully modernised and features new kitchen equipment such as fridge freezer, dishwasher, hob, cooker and microwave. There is a laundry outhouse with clothes line and a choice of gas BBQ or utilise the outdoor kitchen with charcoal BBQ and paella house.

Free wi-fi internet access is available (with your own laptop/ smartphone/ IPad), plus there is a 40 inch flat screen TV with Satellite TV, DVD player, I-Pod dock and CD player. To keep you entertained, there is a selection of books, DVD's & games. There is air-conditioning in 2 bedrooms, an electric fan in bedroom 3 & ceiling fans in the lounge plus dull central heating (for winter bookings).

You can eat breakfast on the balcony, relax in the very private garden surrounded by lovely fruit trees, cool off in your private swimming pool, play or relax in the extensive gardens, or chill out on the spacious shady terrace during the heat of the day.

The pool area boasts an 8 x 4 metres pool (1.4 metres deep). There are corner, roman styled steps into the pool. This area is perfect for family fun or catching a few rays in your sun lounger. There is a fantastic shaded area built in to the corner of the substantial pool terrace.

Fantastic extras provided by the owner include a gas BBQ, plus you can have fun playing table tennis, badminton, boules & darts. There is plenty of outdoor furniture such as sun loungers, deck chairs, parasol and outdoor table. Beach towels are supplied so save on valuable luggage space.

Enjoy the city centre attractions and the gorgeous sandy beaches of this region whilst discovering the charming, traditional Spanish towns and villages and stunning inland, rural scenery - all within 1 holiday.

The local supermarket is only about 8 minutes drive away, and boasts an impressive fish counter and great selection of food and wine, so you can stock up on your groceries with ease. There is a cafe/ bar and pharmacy next to this supermarket and also a restaurant a little further along the same road. The nearest village (called Godelleta) with all local amenities is about 10 minutes drive away.

After unwinding and enjoying chilled out days at the villa, you may be ready to get out and explore Valencia, which is Spain's 3rd largest city. There is so much to see in this amazing city. A 'must' is to visit the futuristic City of Science and Arts (which includes the amazing Oceangraphic aquarium), Bioparc Zoo & Jardin del Turia. Valencia is full of historical interest especially as the cathedral is said to be the home of the Holy Grail. Make the effort to climb the many steps of the tower for stunning views over the city. Then take time to discover the Barrio Carman (old quarter) with its old cobbled streets, plazas and traditional café bars. There are many interesting monuments, museums & parks to discover as well as lots of art galleries. Other places of interest are the La Lonja de la Seda (the former silk exchange), the Bull ring & Mercardo (the traditional, large indoor market). Plus there is also the modern marina built to host the America's Cup as well as the old port to explore. Football fans should visit Mestalla (the home of the Valencia football team). If you don't want to drive into Valencia, it is cheap & easy to catch the train from Chiva or get the metro from Torrent.

Just off the A3 motorway (about a 15 minute drive, near the airport) is the fantastic Bonaire shopping mall. This is home to lots of outlets stores and famous name shops such as Zara, Mango, Primark and many more. There is a huge Al Campo hypermarket, lots of restaurants and fast food outlets to choose from, plus a cinema and bowling alley.

The Valencian region also has stunning scenery to explore with lakes, mountains, rural & historical towns & villages. Walkers will enjoy the Sierra Calderona natural park with its unspoilt sea views, pine forests & well marked footpaths. The Reserva Muele de Cortes is another lovely nature reserve. Closer to the coast is the Albufera freshwater lagoon & the stunning long sandy beaches of El Saler. Make sure you try the authentic paella at El Palmer which is the home of Valencian paella.

This is an important agricultural area of Spain, therefore all kinds of fresh produce is grown locally. You will see the fruit trees and grapevines in the surrounding fields and valleys. You can take a winery tour in the nearby town of Requena. Take time to visit the warm water canyon at Montanejos, admire the Navajas waterfalls, sail through the beautiful Coves of Saint Joseph or discover the historical towns of Xativa & Sagunto. Other activities on offer in the region include boat hire, sailing lessons, wind-surfing, jet-ski, diving lessons, fishing, cycling, horse riding, motor racing events & golf.

This lovely villa is situated just a short 10 minute drive from exit 337 of A3 Valencia-Madrid motorway and is located on Urbanisation Monsec in the Cumbres de Calicanto area. It is only a 20 minute drive from Valencia airport so is really conveniently located for the airport, city centre and the stunning coastline. Please note due to the semi-rural location it is not uncommon to experience animal noises such as dogs, cats, sheep, goats and chickens.

You can chill out with lazy days sunbathing in the garden, enjoy family fun in your own pool and have a delicious BBQ. When you are ready to explore, just hop in the car (or catch the train from Chiva or the metro from Torrent) to discover Valencia City. Alternatively relax on the stunning sandy beaches of El Saler, Cullera or Sagunto, or visit the sleepy villages & stunning countryside of the inland region of Valencia.

Close to the villa, the local 'Consum' supermarket is about 8 minutes drive. This is a really well stocked supermarket where you can get all your holiday provisions for self-catering. There is also a bar/ cafeteria (Café Nelsey) and small play park next to the supermarket as well as an ATM cash machine and pharmacy. A little further along this road is the Asador restaurant. There is also the El Mirador restaurant at the El Bosque Clubhouse which is open to non-golfers/ non-residents.

Godelleta village is approximately a 10 minute drive away. This is a sleepy Spanish village with some small shops, cafes, playground, bank & chemist. The larger town of Chiva is around a 20 minute drive and offers more restaurants, shops, internet cafes & the train into Valencia. You can buy cheap, locally produced wine, fruit and vegetables from the nearby co-operatives & use them to create a delicious meal at the villa where you can dine al-fresco meal on the balcony overlooking your own private pool and gardens.

In summary, this villa is in a great location for those wanting to visit Valencia city but don't want to stay in the hussle & bustle from city centre living as well as exploring the charming places of interest in the wider region of Valencia. You can be sunbathing on the stunning, sandy beaches of Malvarossa, Cabenyal-Arena & El Saler or discovering the inland Valencian villages within a short drive from the villa. It is also a great base for events at the Ricardo Tormo GP Moto circuit (Cheste), & El Bosque Golf Club (Chiva).

Activities include: Valencia city sightseeing, Bioparc zoo, Aquarium at the City of Science and Arts, Bonaire retail outlet, sandy beaches, El Saler natural park, walking, golf, GP Moto, wine tours, cycling plus much more.

Why Amber Raab chose Godelleta

We fell in love with this property the moment we stepped in the gates. Set in the hills of Valencia, a short drive from the airport, but far enough to feel out of the way. It is surrounded by tall hedges, it sits in large grounds with fruit trees and greenery. Its a special place to be, offering privacy and fantastic outdoor space.

What makes this villa unique

There are plenty of places to entertain, or find a quite spot to relax in peace. With tons for the kids to do, including a shed full of activities and plenty of space, it leaves the adults time to enjoy themselves too. On the roof terrace the views are fantastic, and the raised pool area has recently been redeveloped to make a larger pool and great space to sunbath overlooking the hills.

Couldn't have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

I agree with every review on here. It really is a wonderful place to stay and there were absolutely no negatives about the accommodation....yeap, none whatsoever!

The details on this property are 100% accurate. 2 adults and 2 children stayed very comfortably here for 9 nights, many a day we had to forcibly remove our children from the accommodation as they did not want to leave!

It was the level of detail which made this villa the best we have ever stayed in. The owners had thought of even the smaller details which made a difference; it really was a home from home. The kitchen had every single utensil known to man, there was basic stock in the cupboards, cleaning products and even a reassuring bottle of calpol! The pool room was stocked with games and toys which kept the children entertained for hours. I appreciate that there has to be an element of trust, but if only all villa owners ran this 'use and replace' system as the Yellow House does, it really does mean your accommodation surpasses all expectations.

Communication from Amber ( he owner) was excellent and the Information Pack inside the accommodation was full of up-to-date tips and tricks. The gardener/pool man kept everything looking stunning outside and it was so lovely to be able to pick our own fresh fruit on a daily basis. Inside, the villa exceeded all expectations. It was immaculately clean and well cared for, spacious, cool and modern. The pool area was exceptional, the photos do not do it justice.

We have a rule never to go back to the same place twice. We are planning to break that rule. The Yellow House had absolutely everything we needed for a relaxing break that, not only have we already recommended to others, we are also planning to return next year.

Thank you Amber and team, a perfect holiday.

Perfect Hone-Away-From-Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 fabulous weeks at the Yellow House. The home is only 20 minutes from the airport and located in a lovely neighbourhood. Directions from the airport to the house are excellent.

Here's our list (in no particular order) of what we liked:

- loads of storage (large wardrobes with lots of hangers)

- comfy beds (with duvets and lots of pillows)

- excellent lighting in the bathroom

- a huge, amazing dining room table

- exterior roller window blinds work really well to selectively shade from the sun and can also make bedrooms dark for sleeping

- lots of receptacles for plugging in electronics and devices

- very well-equipped kitchen (lots of cutlery, plates, glasses of all kinds, multiple pots and frying pans)

- full size fridge

- washing machine with English instructions

- very spacious open plan kitchen, living, dining area; lots of comfy seating

- huge selection of DVDs and books of all kinds (including excellent guidebooks for the entire region)

Also, the people who represent the owners could not be better. We met the English couple who manage the home as well as the plumber. They were all dedicated to making sure that our time at the Yellow House was as we had hoped. We had an wonderful vacation.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home away from home. Stunning house, spacious grounds, lots of places to hang around and relax.

You will need a car, as it's a drive to the shops and restaurants, but that's exactly what we wanted. We came home relaxed and energised!

Super realxing stay in a wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with 3 children (2 teenagers) and we found the stay in the Yellow House very relaxing and loved the pool. The house is very well equipped, clean and large enough for our family of 5. We spent a lot of our time relaxing ether by the pool or playing games (table tennis, boules, football) with our children. The internet was fantastic and allow our children to keep in contact with there friends at home. Evenings were filled by having BBQ's and sitting outside and later (after dark) we spent time watching films and TV.

The house is in a remote location so a car is critical, although within 30 minute drive there are loads of restaurants and places to visit, including Valencia which we explored on a number of occasions. If visiting with children I would recommend visit Montanejos, where you can swim in the springs.

Finally the property agent (Nicola) was very professional and the cleaning and maintenance staff that visited to change linen and cleaning the pool were very friendly and really nice people to talk too. I would personally high recommend this property and should we visit the area again we would look to rebook.
