This ADULT only well appointed and beautifully furnished Villa is situated on the tranquil hills of Tossal Gros, above the village of La Font D'en Carros, and the towns of Oliva and Gandia, with all their shops, bars and restaurants, and kilometers of blue flag beaches.

An ideal area for walking in the beautiful mountains of the Northern Costa Blanca, and our Villa is the perfect place to return to after a day out exploring.

The villa offers spectacular views west to the mountains then over the Safor Valley as far as the mountains behind Valencia, and then to the East uninterrupted views over the Mediterranean Sea, and then to the South towards the Montgo and Denia.

In the evening as the sun sets behind the mountains the colours are outstanding, and s dusk arrives the lights all over the valley below offer a delightful and peaceful ambiance.

This Villa is the ideal home from home for those wanting to stay in this glorious part of Spain.

Sit and relax on one of the terraces with a long cool drink and settle down to watch the sunset and then the fireworks from one of the many fiestas in the area, or curl up in the lounge in front of the fire.

About John and Maggie Male

John is passionate about landscape and ensuring that everything "looks right" This area allows him to use his skills as a horticulturalist to improve the property, keeping many of the Moorish influences using indigenous plants, and those which thrive in the Mediterranean climate

The work to complete the terraces and the garden is ongoing. We reinvest the rental money to continue to improve the property and the facilities offered to our guests.

To enable more people to come and enjoy staying in our beautiful villa we have constructed separate accommodation for John, so that we are able to offer Casa Romero year round.

Whilst we appreciate that having the owner close by will not suit everyone, we would like to assure you of your privacy, and that the use of the pool and terraces will be solely for your use.

We will be able to offer a higher standard of service, be available to offer as much or as little assistance as you require.

We are both very aware of the need for rest and relaxation and this is what we offer.

John moved out to Spain permanently in 2012 to supervise and assist in the work developing the Villa and the grounds.

From Sept through to May we both enjoy walking in the beautiful mountains of the Costa Blanca. John is happy to walk with you, or give you ideas of where to go. You can also walk twice weekly with the Costa Blanca Mountain Walkers

I continue to work in the UK, but am very fortunate in being able to take time to spend a week each month in Spain.

John and Maggie Male purchased this villa in 2005

Why John and Maggie Male chose La Font d'En Carròs

When we decided that we wanted to one day move to Spain we knew that we did not want to be in 'Little Britain' but wanted to immerse ourselves in the Spanish way of life, and this region has a rich culture and the history of this area is fascinating

We enjoy glorious views to the coast and the mountains

We have easy and good access to the blue flag beaches of Oliva and Gandia,

We also enjoy the outdoors and this is an excellent area for walking, either independently or with one of the walking groups.

With being on the hill it always a little cooler than at sea level in the height of summer and we often have a gentle refreshing breeze.

What makes this villa unique

Because of the hill which we are situated on there is often a cooling breeze in the summer.

The fabulous panoramic views across the orange groves to the sea or across to the mountains, enjoyed at all times of the day and night, but especially with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset and then enjoy the fireworks from the many local fiestas.

You can do as much or as little as you want to,- relax by the pool or head to the mountains for a walk.

Casa Romero is ideally situated to explore the surrounding villages, towns and cities.

Our home is furnished to a high standard to enable you to enjoy your well deserved holiday.

John will be on hand to offer any assistance that he can to enable you to get the most enjoyment out of your holiday, from the meet and greet service to the pool cleaning and changing of linens.

Bed linen and towels are changed weekly. A light clean is also carried out at this time- mopping of floors and cleaning of the bathrooms.

If for any other reason he requires access to the Villa he will arrange it with you to fit in with your plans.

So as not to disturb you the pool maintenance and plant care will be before 1100.

Bath towels, pool towels and beach towels are all provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I thank again John and Maggie for your hospitality and your beautiful Casa Romero. Panoramic views, stunning pool and garden. Beach beautiful.

We will be back/ Thank you

Beautiful villa.

  • 5 of 5

John and Maggie met us and welcomed us to their beautiful villa set on a hill with gorgeous views. The villa had everything you needed for a relaxing holiday. Well equipped kitchen. Moroccan themed bedroom with en suite and also a twin bedroom. Clean and tidy. Large lounge/diner . Table and chairs and patio furniture on the terrace so we always ate alfresco as the view was spectacular. The pool was great and John checked it on a regular basis. John was on hand to show us where to go and visit. Perfect relaxing holiday, quiet and peaceful. Surrounding areas were accessible via car like the beach and the local town, Oliva, a trip to the port at Denia was great. John and Maggie were the perfect hosts.

Definitely would recommend.

Beautiful views, beautifully maintained and equipped; a gem

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this beautiful villa do not do it justice. It has more than enough room for four adults, is well equipped throughout and has the most glorious 270 degree panorama view. The pool is very well maintained has chairs, table and loungers. Inside and out it is spotlessly clean. Highly recommended for a very relaxing break.

Spacious relaxing villa with beautiful garden and pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Casa Romero - we were welcomed by John the owner who was very friendly and helpful. The villa is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. This included a welcome pack to get us started and also shampoos, washing and cleaning products plus cooking oils, herbs and spices in the cupboards.

The view from the Naya is nothing short of spectacular and must be over 270' wide - there was always something to look at and time just flew by! The garden is filled with many exotic plants and is beautifully maintained. The pool area is great too!

It was reassuring to know John was on hand if any problems occurred (none did of course!) but he was mindful that our privacy was paramount. He has a lot of local and horticultural knowledge. Next time we visit we will definitely join one of his organised walks taking in some of the sights. He was also kind enough to give up his time to take us for a short tour of some of the local villages which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The booking process was very straightforward and Maggie answered any queries promptly.

We had a great time and would have no hesitation in recommending this villa. We look forward to returning soon.

Beautiful villa and welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Casa Romero and John and Maggie made us feel really welcome and helped by getting some essentials in ready for our arrival.

The villa is beautiful and the pool was fully utilised by us as the weather was superb. It was lovely exploring the surrounding villages and towns with beautiful beaches. We won't hesitate to visit again.

Thanks John and Maggie for letting us stay at your wonderful villa!!

Well equipped. The owners have built a beautiful home, with great planting and architectural features. The hill climb in the car is interesting on first visit, but easy after that!

Thanks John and Maggie
