The property also has a roof terrace with panoramic views of the coast to one side and mountain pines on the other.

My wife Elaine and I are from Scotland. We are now both retired and hope to spend a lot more of our time in Spain.
John purchased this Villa in 2004
Why John chose La Font d'En Carròs
The house was a new build and was completed by a local builder in October 2004. Since then several features such as the rear terraces, pool and car port/front garden have been added as and when we could afford it. We chose this area as it is away from the traditional Costa resorts but still close to the award winning local beaches which are still quiet even in the high season.
What makes this Villa unique
Although the area is away from the traditional Costa resorts they can still be accessed by car in less than 40 minutes if you want to visit for the day. There are several supermarkets in the area varying from the very large Carrefour in Gandia (only 15 minutes in the car) or the many and varied ones in Oliva itself. We usually go to the Mercadona at the north end of the "paseo" because of its convenience and variety. The urbanisation is usually quiet both during the day and at nights and is perfect for chilling out and forgetting about work.

The villa is fabulous, very well equipped, clean and spacious. The outside terraces are lovely and totally secluded. The view from the rooftop terrace is amazing. It is situated at the top of a hill/mountain and very peaceful. Great place to chill out!
Thank you for your kind review Ingrid. I agree the location of the villa makes it a perfect place to chill out. I enjoyed having you as guests and hope you will return some day.

Lovely villa in a great quiet location with a very nice pool
The villa is very well kept and supplied with all you need. The location up in the hills is ideal for a quiet getaway with the family and it is very nice having a pool to yourselves. The nearby town of Oliva is pleasant and has enough restaurants to eat out as well as good supermarkets. The beaches are really very nice and clean, and remarkably not overrun with tourists given how nice they are. Our only issue was mosquitoes which were a bit of a nuisance so I would recommend repellents etc. Overall a very pleasant holiday, and John is very accommodating and responsive to any specific needs.
Thanks Khaleel, we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay at the house. The beaches are indeed always well kept and not too busy even in peak times. Yes it's always wise to use mosquito repellent at this time of the year.

The house is just perfect and the pool was too
We stayed at john's for 10 nights and completely loved it, oliva is very quiet and peaceful,and the beach was amazing miles of sand and the sea doesn't get deep for a long way out which was great for my son who's 10, we went to gandia a couple of times which was busy but good, best bits about the house is the pool and the views of mountains one side and the sea the other, we've booked again for next year this time 14nights.
Thanks for taking the time to write the review Nick and I look forward to welcoming you back next year.
Wonderful Holiday. (Again).
This was the second year running that I have rented this Villa and once again my family and I had a perfect holiday.
The Villa, grounds and pool are all in excellent condition, they are well maintained and were spotlessly clean on our arrival.
If you are looking for a peaceful holiday in beautiful surroundings with stunning views, I can highly recommend this Villa.
Once again a very big thank you to John and Elaine for allowing us to rent their Villa.
Thanks Neil, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the house once again.
