This detached villa is situated in a residential area which offers some of the most picturesque sea & mountain views of the whole region. It is easily accessible from both Valencia & Alicante airports (approximately one hour’s drive away). The villa is situated on the hillside just above the town and it takes approximately 8 minutes to drive into the town and a few more to get to the amazing beaches. The accommodation is ideally set on one level and is well laid out and tastefully furnished. Outside there are terraces to the front of the villa with seating and sun loungers. To the rear there is a garden and barbecue area and entrance to the large communal swimming pool which is shared with only two other villas. The villa is both a family and a romantic getaway. It is also an ideal base to discover the region or for house hunters. The villa is available to let on a weekly basis all year.
Golfing: For golfing enthusiasts there are many excellent golf courses in the area. In Valencia located on a narrow stretch of dunes and dense pinewoods separating the Albufera Lagoon from the Mediterranean Sea is the El Saler Golf Course, ranked among the Top 10 in Europe and Top 100 in the world. The adjacent Albufera Lagoon is a vast expense of brackish waters and rice paddies, which is also a natural reserve full of birds and wild life. Other courses in and around Valencia include, Club de Golf Manises, Club de Golf El bosque & Club de Golf Escorpion. The prestigious Oliva Nova Golf Course is within a 20 minute drive from the villa. This course was designed by Seve Ballesteros, is reasonably priced and boasts an excellent clubhouse with restaurant. Nearby La Sella (Denia) & Javea golf courses offer excellent driving ranges and facilities.

Horse riding stables are located next to Oliva Nova Golf Course and there is a go-kart track nearby. Oliva Nova Beach and Golf Resort has a spa and wellness centre and offers beauty treatments.

You could also visit Ibiza on a day trip from Denia port, a 25 minute drive away. There are other boat trips to be enjoyed, which travel up and down the coast and to nearby islands.

My husband is Belgian and I´m English and are both bilingual. We are the King and Queen of Franglais! When in Spain, we enjoy testing out our Spanish with the locals.
We love our villa which we try and visit at least once a year - if we didn´t have to work ;-) we would spend much longer than 2 weeks a year there! We love the fact that it´s comfortable (we chose all the fittings), that it´s in a quiet neighbourhood, has fantastic views and is close to everything: the town, the beach, the shops and attractions. Whilst at the villa, a typical day for us would be to get up late, go down to the town to buy a 'pollo asado' from el rostidor and then go to the Mercadona (supermarket) for some bread, ailloli and chocolate (we are chocoholics). We then head back up to the villa, eat our meal on the front patio gazing at the world going by (it´s like watching Sim City) and mooch around, with maybe a dip in the pool (which also has some great views). In the evening, when it´s cooler, we like to head to the beach for a walk, then back up to the villa to watch the sun set and, if we are lucky, some fireworks. Then we usually check out our (I must say myself) extensive DVD collection and 'relax'.
We hope you enjoy our villa as much as we do.
