This beautifully appointed and spacious 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.

Are you looking for a self catering holiday with added touches of a hotel stay? Are you looking for those added little touches which add a whole new perspective to self catering accommodation? Then Casa Romero could be just what you are looking for!

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. 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 Valencia Province

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

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 on Wednesdays and Saturdays. 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.

Exactly as described. Stunning views, great facilities and good hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property for a relaxing and peaceful holiday. Swimming pool is very clean with plenty of space for 'chilling' and the Naya (terrace) is fabulous for coffee in the morning and evening drinks! Watching the sunset each evening with a glass of wine is a great way to wind down! John is a perfect host providing a welcome familiarisation of the property and then being very responsive to any query. This is a property that we will definitely try to return to one day in future.

Very relaxing break!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a short & relaxing break at Casa Romero.

We didn’t arrive until after 10pm by which time it was dark but John was on hand to guide our car through the electric gates and into our parking spot. He then helped us with our luggage into the villa where he gave us a quick guided tour. We really appreciated that he had provided a ‘starter pack’ of bread, butter, milk, eggs etc as we hadn’t had time to have an evening meal. This included a welcoming cold bottle of wine in the fridge. We sat outside on the Naya on that first evening eating scrambled eggs, bread rolls and drinking wine, whilst being treated to a firework display in the distance.

There is no need to repeat the description of the facilities at the villa because they are all just as described on the HomeAway web site. It was like a home from home. All the fixtures and fittings are of high quality. We really appreciated the extra touches such as the provision of towels that we could use by the pool. The all-important wifi signal was strong enough to connect to whilst by the pool.

The views from the villa are spectacular. I got up at 6:30 on 2 mornings just to see the sunrise! John’s skills as a horticulturist are apparent as the gardens are beautiful.

The correspondence we had from John and Maggie was very detailed, including the directions to the villa.

During our stay, Maggie was over from England so we got to meet her as well. Both John & Maggie were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome in their home.

One thing that isn’t mentioned in the property details (although it is in the ‘Owner’ part of the listing), is that John has his own accommodation underneath the Naya. We had missed this when we booked, so it came as a slight shock when John explained this to us, as we really value our privacy. We needn’t have worried though, as John & Maggie fully respected our privacy.

Thanks again John & Maggie.

Deluxe Mountainside Retreat -

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not lie, a wonderful villa with just about everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The property was immaculate on arrival, it felt more like a luxury spa than a villa with some lovely touches by the owners Maggie and John. We met John on arrival who was the perfect host and showed us around the villa in just 15 minutes. John was on hand throughout the break for anything we needed, nothing was too much trouble. The local restaurant which was in walking distance had unfortunately closed so we had to use the car for any evening trips out. John even drove us on a couple of occasions to local restaurants, we would definitely recommend Kiko Port Restaurant by the beach for some lovely local fish dishes and a really good house white, excellent local tapas in Oliva town centre at nou cellar and any of the restaurants in Carrer Del La Mar Mediterrania near the beach at Platja Pau Pi which was lovely and uncrowded when we went in early July. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a luxury break away and a perfect place to relax and unwind. Thanks again John and Maggie.

Nowhere nicer!

  • 5 of 5

What a treat to arrive after exhausting travel nearing one in the morning to see the owner outside to greet us. Owner John was the most professional of the Homeaway properties we have visited. We wanted a secluded two bedroom villa with a pool, but were pleasantly surprised by the well-maintained, beautifully landscaped, great views and lovely restful breezes that washed over the balcony. We could not have been more pleased. We needed R&R and that is what this home provided. The owner was top-notch and although we had some difficulties with Homeaway payment system, the owners were on top of the issue and very responsive. With the stairs it is definitely not good for wee children or very elderly, but other than that everyone would enjoy this marvelous facility. Wi-fi was excellent, too.

Excellently presented spacious and quiet villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the villa on Google Earth: https://goo.gl/maps/THBbd.

The naya (verandah) is very private and provides a fine panoramic view from the North East (closest to the sea) around to the West (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2eTKDiZ05k). We can confirm there was usually a pleasant breeze in its shade on the hotter days!

The excellent pool is overlooked by the nearest villa - but that was unoccupied until the last day of our visit. There's no direct access between the pool and the naya, so from the pool you have to go up the steps to the front door of the villa. The floors are tiled throughout - so no problems with wet feet walking through the villa.

The villa and its equipment are as advertised, clean and well-maintained, and John and Maggie have produced a smartly laid-out garden around the front of the villa - they are working on the rest of the grounds, and also building a small separate apartment down the hill below the existing villa (there was no building work going-on during our stay, in June 2015).

In our brief stay we didn't dine out, but there are plenty of shopping opportunities for self-catering in the bustling town of Oliva, and we made a couple of visits to the fine beach at Rabdells.
