About Michelle Crowther
We are a family of four from North Yorkshire. We have owned the villa from new since 1995.
Michelle Crowther purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Michelle Crowther chose Calpe
When we bought the villa we had no intention of hiring it out, therefore furnished it accordingly. We have two children who now like to stay at home during the summer holidays to socialise with their friends. We decided rather than leave it empty, we would hiring it the villa out so other families can enjoy it too.
What makes this Villa unique
We love the villa because it is private, yet not too secluded. It is home from home for us with the benefit of the sun. The villa is on a small quiet complex allowing us to socialise if we choose or alternatively have quality family time. We have never grown board as this region has an abundance diversity, tradition to contemporary, al-a carte to basic cuisine, high activities to relaxation, sociable to escapism, culture to sun sea and sand. These are just an example of why our family and friends have so many fabulous memories of spending time year on year here.

Great villa in a lovely location
This was our second visit to the villa within eight months. The layout and the location worked really well for us and our two children (aged 1 and 2 1/2) and the facilities at the villa catered for pretty much everything we needed whilst on holiday. The drive from Alicante airport is straightforward and once you arrive, there are plenty of things to do and explore in the local area - all within a 15-20 minute drive. The closest beach is only a five minute trip and is well worth a visit. Calpe is also only five minutes away and is a great place to explore with a whole variety of things to do, which will offer something for almost everyone. The villa itself is in a very small gated complex and the surrounding area is wonderfully quiet. The balcony from the upstairs bedroom offers views down to Calpe and the sea beyond - a great place to enjoy a 'sundowner' once the kids have gone to bed! We would have no hesitation recommending this villa to family and friends.
Thank you, Simon for your review. I am delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay. We always try hard to make sure your holiday experience in our villa runs seamlessly. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind regards Michelle.
Great location and well appointed villa.
Very fortunate to get such a good week of weather so late in the year. The villa had everything we needed (although we couldn't get the washing machine to work) and was a really comfortable base from which to explore the nearby towns and coast.
Would definitely consider staying again when we next visit the area.
Thank you for your great review it always good to recieve feedback. Thank you also for drawing my attention to the washing machine. I will certainly investigate why you were experiencing a problem and if there is a fault get it fixed. Did you report it to Adelina our villa manager? Hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards Michelle
Stunning Villa - Fully Recommended
Our family of four stayed in this Villa for a couple of weeks and had a great time. We couldn't fault its location, cleanliness, size with exceptional overall quality. The pool was great and very suitable for kids to have a play.
Michelle the owner was always available to answer any queries in the lead up to and during our stay.
I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a nice, quiet family holiday with plenty of restaurants nearby.
Great villa for a family holiday
The villa lived up to our expectations, we enjoyed a happy relaxing 2 week break. This is a well equipped holiday home and our 3 children (15, 13 & 10yrs) loved both of the pools. The local shops and bars were great. We loved exploring the beaches and the old town in Calpe and the rest of the Costa Blanca. The cycle mad member of our group managed over 450km on the great bike he hire from the shop the villa owners recommended. The information provided by the owners was really helpful and informative. We would love to come back again in the near future.
Hi Ian, thank you so much for this review. It's always great when people take the time to report their experience. I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Thanks again. Michelle
Peaceful little gem in a good location
Loved it , villa had everything we needed, very clean and well kept, and it was so quiet , a little bit away from the noisy town but close enough for the shops, car recommended. Great customer service from the owner, made our holiday along with the perfect weather, will certainly consider booking again
A great holiday villa
Very nice place with everything you could want in a holiday villa. Lovely area and easy to get around by car. Calpe is 10 minutes drive with numerous restaurants and the beach. Javea, Denia and Altea are all a short drive away and worth a visit. Michelle was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.
Thank you for taking the time to write the review. I really appreciate it. It''s really rewarding when you know someone has enjoyed the villa and the surrounding areas as much as our family does. I lucky to have the help of our our excellent villa manager. Thank you again Michelle
