About Tudor Alexander

I live in the UK and work as a lawyer.

Tudor Alexander purchased this villa in 1988

Why Tudor Alexander chose Busot

It's a nice villa in a quiet place but near to many interesting places and activities as well as Alicante airport. It is convenient to have a car as the bus service is not great, though some guests are very happy to use the local taxis.

Peaceful surroundings, everything provided

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our stay at La Florina, a lovely week was had by all. The villa is situated in a nice quiet area, but close enough to shops and the main towns, just a short drive away.

Everything we needed was provided at the villa, and Hillary the caretaker was very helpful. The villa was clean and well kept.

Busot is certainly worth exploring, good restaurants and bakery, and a lot of history.

Would certainly recommend and we are considering a longer stay next year!

Fun in La Florina

  • 4 of 5

We arrived after a relatively short taxi drive from the airport. The villa was very welcoming. It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. We arranged for a local man Clive to take us for a food (and drink) shop at the supermarket the following day where they sold top quality produce and very cheap Cava. Once that was out of the way we spent a lot of time soaking up the sun around the pool area and even braved the pool although it was a bit like the ice bucket challenge (it is April after all ) it was so cold but very refreshing. We ate outdoors and spent many a pleasant evening on the patio. Clive took us to the local market and the sea front which is beautiful in El Campello that boasts many friendly bars and restaurants. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable holiday that I woud definitely repeat - hopefully in the not to distant future. Thank you Tudor x

Great villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in April at La Florina. The house is really well equipped and has a cosy living room with lots of books and some English TV channels, which was a bonus. The outside space is great and the kids loved the pool because it wasn't too deep. The location is brilliant, loads to see and visit. We especially liked Elche and the castle in Alicante. The caves in Bussot are also worth a visit. Tudor and Gary were both really helpful, we hope to come back.

Owner's Response: Great, Karen - very pleased you'd had a good time and hope you will return soon. Yes, the Alicante castle and Elche are lovely. Elche has a vast palm grove - largest in Europe, and some beautiful gardens. So glad that you did some exploring, as well as the children enjoying the pool at the start of April - a bit brave of them, perhaps! Gary is wonderful!

Peaceful and away from it....

  • 5 of 5

Firstly my wife and I found Tudor to be helpful and very fair in his approach and in booking details, the villa is set in a peaceful residential area away from the flow of holiday makers so if you are looking for complete peace this is the place, the villa is in its own enclosed grounds with lots of shaded areas if needed with great views of the mountains ,Busot, hills and across to the sea.

The villa has a new kitchen and great aircon in bedrooms all being recent upgrades to this spacious villa, all windows have mosquito nets.

The villa has rustic Spanish charm and is homely with character giving us such a fab time that we have already booked for next year..thank you La Florina.

Absolutely fantastic! Fell in love with the villa.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was a traditional style spanish villa with a beautiful large swimming pool. It was so peaceful there and the flowers in the garden were stunningly beautiful. Everywhere we wanted to visit was within easy reach. Both the owner of the villa and the caretaker were the most wonderfully friendly helpful people and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was perfect. I have honestly never enjoyed a holiday so much and will definately stay there again.
