What makes this villa unique

Villa Gemma has the perfect location - it's in a quiet urban area with enough amenities in the locality for all essentials. It's position overlooking orange groves with the mountains in the distance is the perfect setting for unwinding. It is very private with its own pool and space for sunbathing or retreating to the shade when the sun is too much. I love the balcony for sitting quietly with a book or a glass of wine (or both!) where the twinkling lights and sunsets really give that 'holiday' feeling. The villa is calm and peaceful with a real homely atmosphere. I love walking in the palm gardens at Elche and lunching in my favourite seafood restaurant, Casa del Mar, in Santa Pola. I can't wait for the next opportunity to visit!

Highly recommended

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a 10 day holiday at this villa and had a fantastic time. The villa is located in a quiet residential area with the beach just a 10 min drive away. The villa had everything we needed and a lovely sized private pool. We have 2 girls aged 7 & 3 and found the villa child friendly which made for a worry free holiday! Would recommend to all.

Our relaxing 2 weeks stay at Villa Gemma

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed at this villa in August for the second year running because it is just a nice, tranquil and easy place to unwind from the usual everyday stresses of working life.

There is a enough space to relax around the edge of a decent sized pool which is great for cooling off. If it's too hot then there is the option to sit in the shade on the balcony which is perfectly situated to admire the fantastic views in the distance.

There is a 10 minute walk to a well-stocked British based mini-supermarket and a few steps upstairs to a handful of bars, cafes and restaurants.

Laura, the agent is very helpful in the process of the initial booking through to when you arrive at the villa and is always available to answer any queries.

If you are looking for a simple, stress-free break then Villa Gemma ticks all the right boxes
