As you approach the villa, you are welcomed by the private pool and large open terrace, leading onto the professionally landscaped garden.

The villa is conveniently situated on the outskirts of Alcalali, just 5 minutes walk from the village, and overlooking the Jalon valley. Access to the villa is extremely convenient, being just 15-20 minutes drive from coastal towns such as Denia, Caple and Javea. Alcalali itself is an unspoiled Spanish village with narrow streets and local grocery stores, together with a collection of fantastic restaurants and small friendly bars and cafes.

The nearest village beyond Alcalali is the popular destination of Jalon, which has more shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as the famous Bodega’s for which the area is so well known.

About Richard & Sarah Searle

We designed and built the villa having fallen in love with the location on our first visit to Spain. Whilst we were not specifically looking to buy or build, we fell in love with the area on our first visit and decided to create a quiet oasis for our family and friends to escape.

Richard & Sarah Searle purchased this villa in 2003

Why Richard & Sarah Searle chose Alcalalí

The views across the valley over the village of Alcalali, a ten minute walk, to the Coll de Rates mountains was irresistible. The location of the villa affords privacy, with the private pool being south facing to enjoy maximum benefit from the sun throughout the day.

What makes this villa unique

Whilst there were many places available in Spain, the combination of the location, tranquility, privacy and convenient access to attractions and facilities has proved perfect for us and our friends and guests over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Superb villa, well equipped. Close to lovely village with nice restaurants.

Great view from the terrace. Will return!

Peace and Tranquility

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at Villa Rica. It was a lovely quiet spot to stay in and we thoroughly enjoyed lazing around the pool on most days. The Villa was also very well equipped and felt very homely with all the ornaments arranged around the Villa. Despite its rural location there are plenty of restaurants nearby if you like eating out while the coast is only a short drive away if you want to visit the beaches of Javea, Denia and the other nearby coastal towns.

A little gem of a villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property last June (2016). This was our first time in Alcalali and the Jalon Valley. This is an exceptionally comfortable and well-appointed villa with a delightful garden, patio and swimming pool . The villa has a fully functional kitchen, lounge/diner with TV, two double bedrooms, one which is ensuite, a twin room and a family bathroom which met all our needs.

The property is situated above Alcalali which is a lovely small town just about a 10 minute walk away with a number of excellent restaurants. Exploring the village is a must, for local produce and wine. The coast is only a short drive away by car through wonderful countryside.

We highly recommend this accommodation which was excellent value and we certainly intend to stay there again.

Lovely Villa a proper home-from-home feel

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is very well maintained and well equipped. The pool and pool area perfect for relaxing and cooling off in the heat of the day with a pretty garden also. Whilst the area is quiet you are not far away from very good, value for money restaurants serving excellent food and wine. A short car journey and you are in the Town with many lovely shops, super market and restaurants. A proper Spanish feel.

Das Haus hat uns sehr gut gefallen und war sehr gut ausgestattet. Der Pool war toll. Die Aussicht könnte man verbessern, indem man den Oleander runterschneidet. Dann wäre der Blick aufs Tal fantastisch. Das deutsche Fernsehen haben wir ein wenig vermisst, aber das WLAN hat uns gerettet. Alles in allem ein schöner Urlaub und empfehlenswert.
