Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Llíber - El Almendral

Peaceful villa. 3 Double ensuite Bedrooms Sleeps 6. Luxurious Family friendly

The spacious [ 245 sq metres] villa was constructed in 2004 to a very high specification and is larger than many 4/5 bedroom properties. It has 8000 sq metres of land which is mainly an Almond grove. The large Master Bedroom Suite has its own seating area and private balcony overlooking the pool. There are 2 further double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. All bedrooms have direct access to the feature swimming pool which is completely private and perfect for 'chilling out'. A large 'Naya' or covered terrace provides a perfect retreat from the midday sun and a wonderful place for dining 'al fresco'.Air conditioning is available in all the bedrooms and the lounge and dining room. The Impressive double height galleried entrance hall has a cloakroom./toilet. The villa is secluded and not overlooked by other properties but not isolated and is a short drive away from many lovely beaches and 2 beautiful golf courses. Free Internet with Wi-Fi and UK satellite TV .

The Local Village of liber is a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive away. It has 2 bars, a bakery, general store and a pharmacy. Slightly further away is the small charming town of Jalon. A wide variety of bars and restaurants are located in the town and the majority speak or understand English. A large Bodega with free wine tasting is located opposite the Tourist information office .

An excellent street market is in the town centre every Tuesday morning.

Things to do in the Local Area: The Jalon Valley is a fascinating place to explore. Described as a 'Paradise between two mountains' It is a renowned wine growing region and from the villa you can look down to the vinyards on the valley floor. Further up the valley sides are numerous almond groves - our villa is located in an almond grove . There are many walks and there is a guidebook in the villa giving details of interesting places to visit. In the foothills of the Sierra Bernia you can visit the Donkey Sanctuary and the Iris Farm. There are the Caves at Benidoleig and a short drive away you will find 2 excellent Golf Courses as well as Go Karting in Teulada and the Safari Park at La Vergel. If you enjoy birdwatching there are many interesting species to be seen around the villa such as redcaps, goldfinches and even the hoopoe with its striking foliage. In the afternoons if it's very quiet the swallows will swoop down to drink water from the pool!

Golf Courses, Watersports, Attractions etc.: There is an excellent golf course at La Sella Golf and Country Club. It has an attractive Club House where lunch, dinner and Tapas can be enjoyed. Tennis and other sports are available for use by Non Members for a small fee.

The Terra Mitica Theme Park is located some 20 minutes south down the motorway and is great fun for all the family. An evening pass is available in the summer months at a reduced rate and offers great value for money. Next to Terra Mitica is the new Mundomar Animal Park.

Aqualandia is also situated near the theme park and is a great day out.

Our nearset beaches are in Javea, Benissa and Moraira and offer a variety of water sports incuding Scuba diving, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing and sailing.

Valencia about an hours drive north, is a city with a wealth of charms from it's medieaval old quarter to the brand new 'City of Arts and Sciences' as well as a huge Aquarium.

New Sofas on order.

El Almendral is an absolute stunner of a property in an awesome location.

I have stayed in the region many times but this year was my first in this villa and it is my favourite. It is very well equipped with excellent facilities, a gas BBQ, a great layout meaning you can make lunch then walk through the dining room and straight out onto the naya and pool terrace.

The property is well-maintained, the beds are comfortable and the whole place is clean.

The pool gets very deep as soon as you walk down the steps; it's an unusual shape, large and is very private. It is not overlooked at all except by the local squirrels who regularly visit the nearby almond grove - delightful!

The villa is situated up a steep, but small drive in a private location affording fantastic views over the valley and lovely sunsets. It is very quiet, peaceful and a fabulous place for a get-away-from-it-all holiday.

Nearby small villages can really only be reached by car - these have cafes, bars and restaurants (nearest restaurant is about a 5 minute drive, nearest village around 10 minutes). Supermarkets are within easy reach too - around 25 minutes in a car. It is a great base for those who want to explore the region and sample wine from the local bodegas.

If you want solitude, but someone at the end of a phone in case anything goes wrong - this is the place for you - the villa manager lives just down the road and is happy to help at any time. The Wi-Fi helps you stay in touch with the world if that is what you want and free-sat TV provides plenty of choice.

It's perfect!

Perfect "Get away from it all" Villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious accommodation, clean and well presented, with all facilities and appliances exactly as described and fully working. As has been said by others, the pool has a real wow factor and also has the benefit of complete seclusion whilst offering fantastic views across the valley. Local wildlife is also on view occasionally and during our week we saw Hoopoo birds, swallows, squirrels and bats.

We checked out three of the local restaurants which were on the "recommended" list, all of which looked great but decided in the end on Val del Pop, which was good value for money and most importantly is within walking distance!

Overall a thoroughly relaxing week in a villa which we would recommend without hesitation.

Private and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four with 2 teenagers, this villa was perfect for us. Private, with the most spectacular views across the almond terraced valley, the setting couldn't have been better! Very spacious, comfortably appointed and everything was very clean and well-maintained. The tv was useful to catch up on the Olympics, and, unsurprisingly, our daughters were pleased with the wi-fi!! Our favourite aspect however was the fantastic, clean pool, plenty of sun on it, interesting shape and very friendly, helpful pool guy Steve.

Thank you, El Almendral for a wonderful family holiday to remember!

A fabulous villa with stunning views of the valley

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th visit to El Almendral and are already planning to return next year, having enjoyed a very relaxing and peaceful holiday. The villa is well equipped with 3 double rooms all ensuite and fully air conditioned. If you need to stay in doors there is a comfortable lounge/dining area with a TV, although with the stunning views I don't know why you would want to!! The villa also has Wi-Fi, a must I guess if you have kids.

The property is spotlessly clean throughout, with a change of linen provided at the end of the first week. The pool is cleaned regularly by Steve who is the most helpful and considerate "pool guy" I have ever met, nothing is too much trouble and is on hand should you need help with anything.

In my opinion the best thing about this villa is its location. The scenery is breathtaking, the views incredible, it is in a truly stunning position looking down the valley.

A great villa with all the facilities in a fabulous location, and thats why I'm going back again.

Beautiful villa - the best yet !!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a few villas in different regions of Spain in the past, but El Almendral surpassed all previous experiences and expectations !

Positives :-

- Fantastic "get away from it all" location - not everyone's cup of tea, but if you are looking for a peaceful rural retreat, then this is it !

- The swimming pool is excellent, being large and in full sun most of the day. It's position close to the villa meant we could keep an eye on our little one (aged 7, and a very keen swimmer!) at all times. The pool guy visited twice in the week to keep it sparkling clean.

- Plenty of local wildlife - the squirrels, golden oriels, hoopoe, and bunnies kept us entertained - all from the pool side.

- The villa itself is spacious, well laid out, and has all the facilities you will need, which are spotlessly clean and well maintained.

- The BBQ was fantastic to cook with, so we ate at the villa quite a lot, having stocked up on fresh local provisions in Benissa, Calpe and Denia. We also tried out some of the restaurants in the local resorts of Calpe, Javea and Denia.

Negatives :-

We tried to think of something that could be improved upon and came up blank !

In summary, a fantastic property in a beautiful location, which we may well return to in the future. The owners Martin and Lynne were a pleasure to deal with - all the information we needed was made readily available both before and during our stay. Highly recommended !

Fantastic villa very quiet and private

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to El Almendral and we weren't disappointed it was as wonderful as we remembered. It is very clean and well maintained and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We would definitely love to return again hopefully for longer. Would definitely recommend this villa for couples or families.
