In the hills above Alicante, a beautiful holiday villa in a fairly small urbanisation outside Busot near El Campello, La Florina overlooks the village of Busot with its Moorish castle, few shops, and restaurants and bars 2 km away. It enjoys breathtaking views of the Sierra del Cabezon mountains, Alicante and the coast line. See the video on this site. The private pool has a gate with padlock if you have small children. And you can see the pool from the kitchen window. House and beach towels included. You need a car or other transportation, as bus service is poor, though there are taxis. We have a timid gentle garden-only cat, seen in one of the photos, who is fed by our caretaker. Our caretaker looks after pool cleaning and you can call him if you have problems. Lovely beaches, waterfalls, lush plateau west of Alcoy & numerous Moorish castles to the west. Shopping at Alicante, palm groves of Elche, the promenades, marinas, and outdoor markets of Campello, San Juan & Alicante, Enjoy colourful Moors & Christians fiestas and fantastic fireworks. . Enjoy a holiday in real Spain and the Costa Blanca .What else do you want to know!

Tudor Alexander purchased this villa in 1988
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, though some guests are very happy to use the local taxis.
We just returned back from 11 wonderful days at La Florina.
The weather was overall very nice compared to cold and windy Denmark, but the best part was the beautiful house we stayed at.
Before we even visited "the unknown" La Florina we felt comfortable with the situation because the customer service had been outstanding. We became even more surprised when we first entered the house and found a welcome packed that just served a purpose after a long journey by car, plain and car again.
The house is cosy and the pictures from the website totally matched reality. When staying in anothers home one thing that matters for us as a family of is that the house and property is clean and both of that totally lived up to the expectation.
On top of that the children were happy to stay at the pool must of the day and when they became bored we were enjoying ourself by playing either badminton or tennis.
The listing description was accurate compared to reality and we were in all ways surprised by the facilities La Florina offered. The kitchen had everything you need, the bedroom and blanket were all nice and clean.
When taking a look at the surroundings we enjoyed the small vilage of Busot happy to be away from where all the tourists are staying. That the vilage only had a baker, small shop etc. was just great because it all was original and no set up for the torits and when the girls wanted to go shopping and visiting the beaches we were less than ½ an hour from that.
We are looking back to one of our greatest holidays as a family and it will not be the last time, we are visiting La Florina.
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.
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.
A great family base for a quiet holiday in a what is generally a busy part of Spain. Pool area very good and ideal for family with young children. Overall a very relaxing holiday and would certainly recommend.
Great place to stay if you want to get away from it all .
Some fantastic views over looking the mountains and the lovely little town of Busot.
The villa is a traditional spanish villa with some home from home touches such as sky tv and WiFi .
The kitchen is modern and well equipped .
We only used the main bedroom as it was just my wife and i staying and found that to be very comfortable , especially with the air con during the hot evenings .
Outside there is plenty of options to sit and chill , be it in the sun or out of the sun .
The pool is great to keep you cool .
Overall we enjoyed our stay here , but a car is essential here as there is nothing in walking distance .
We arrived very late at night, and the owner had provided us with drinks etc... We cannot fault the villa or Tudor,the owner, he was extremely helpful before, during and after our stay and we will be back very soon
