About Wim Rossey
We are a couple with children and are happy to share our holliday home with you. We speak English, Dutch and French. Also some German.
Wim Rossey purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Wim Rossey chose Partaloa
When we were looking for a house in Spain we paid close attention to finding a real home in a location with a favourable climate. This brought us to the Almeria/Andulusia region and the town of Albox more precisely, as this is a real part of Spain that lives and breathes all year, not a tourist hotspot without any real character.
What makes this Villa unique
With all the activities around the house and in the neighborhood there is plenty to do for the whole family at any time of the year. The villa is located a few km outside the town of Albox. This gives us access to authentic restaurants and people and a city with 10.000 inhabitants where live continous through the winter, but still with easy access to beaches, attractions and interesting cities to have a day out. But we also made sure that the house offers a full stay's worth of activities with many indoor and outdoor recreation possibilities. So if you don't want to leave the doorstep, just stay on the 1000m² terrain and enjoy all we have to offer on site.

Had a fantastic week staying at the villa. It is a little remote but that is exactly what we wanted. The local town of Albox is a short drive away and the beaches of mojaca can be reached in under an hour.
The facilities at the villa were fantastic for exactly the kind of family fun we were looking for with 3 generations (all over 30 years old) but it would also be suitable for families with young children.
A 2 minute drive will take you to a small cafe that provide a wonderful breakfast to start your day.
Overall a lovely holiday. Thank you very much.
The worst villa I have ever stayed at. In very poor condition, few things don’t work.
The owner was supposed to leave matches to light the cooker & never, also never left enough gas for the week we were there to operate the oven.
Chipped plates & cups.
The villa needs a complete over haul.
None of the outside electrical equipment works including pool pump.
Pool not heated, very cold.
Not 5 minute drive to Albox more like 20 minutes.
I certainly wouldn’t book this villa again.
Would not recommend
This property was shabby and tired with broken outside furniture, broken appliances and an overall air of having seen better days.
The main point of concern was the pool whose filters do not work which led to a constantly dirty pool, a particular problem given the dusty environment.
The outside furniture is made of wicker which is broken in places and as such a risk of cutting into skin.
The oven/cooker has knobs which fall off and cannot be lit by the ignition...manually lighting it using a lighter or match resulted in a burn.
Much is made in the advertising of this property of the outside amenities however in truth these are also old and have seen better days.
Overall cleanliness of the cutlery and BBQ was also poor.
All this feedback was given to the property owner in a private email however he did not have the courtesy to respond
We were very surprised about your feedback. We always try to bring our guests the best holiday experience and mostly succeed very well we might say.
Your should read the comments of other holiday makers on airbnb, some of them staying just a few weeks before you.
Our house cannot be held responsible for a burn while using a match. Nor do we think that the house is looking old and in a bad shape because one terrace tile has a missing edge, out of more than 500m².
So again, we feel bad about you not enjoying your stay, but think that your feedback is very biased.
Great property especially for children, loved our stay
We had a very enjoyable stay at Casa Naranja. Beds super comfy great outdoor seating area.
Swimming pool is large and the whole family enjoyed the pool, pool table, table football and hot tub.
It really does have everything you could ask for and I would definitely recommend it.
We where a family of 2 adults and 5 children and we had more than enough space.
It is a very quiet location and you will need a car.
If there was one thing that would have made it slightly better would have been air conditioning in the master bedroom as it got very hot upstairs. But don't let this distract you from how excellent this villa is.
We most definitely intend to return to this property and we have never been anywhere twice before.
Gaz and Hollie
This villa and alleged facilities are in a poor state of repair
On arrival the pool was cloudy and became progressively worse, we contacted the agent after 6 days and were informed that they were aware of the problem, we were unable to use the pool for 3 days whilst it was being solved. Dishwasher and window blinds didnt work and all sun loungers were broken and unusable as were all games equipment. Be aware that only the kitchen/diner has air conditioning so the master bedroom upstairs is very hot. We have stayed in many villas in Almeria province and unfortunately this is by far the worst.
Lovely size and very well equipped. Lovely and peaceful surroundings.
We had a lovely and very relaxing holiday at villa naranja. The villa with all the activities on offer kept the teenagers entertained. We have stayed at numerous villas and I have to say this is The best equipped villa we have stayed in. The villa had everything you needed for your stay. The villa is in a lovely peaceful location and within 10 minutes drive to the nearest town of albox where there are supermarkets and shops. Wim the owner was very helpful with any questions I had. The only negative thing I can say is that the shower head in the master bathroom was broke and water sprayed everywhere when you had a shower so we just used the downstairs shower instead. We would definitely return to villa naranja and would recommend it for a lovely holiday.
