SEA VIEW COTTAGE

Villajoyosa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two beach-front cottages, 2 bedrooms each, 40 minutes to Alicante airport

Our unique BEACH COTTAGE sleeps 4 (3 beds), SEA VIEW COTTAGE sleeps 5 (3 beds + sleep sofa)

Both are set in a tropical garden with glorious sea views and a pergola-covered patio. The sea laps at the pebbly beach on secluded Charco Bay, where we snorkel and swim. A Moorish lookout tower is at the tip of our cove. Both rentals have two bedrooms, a bath with shower, a kitchen & living/dining room, plus separate terraces equipped for al fresco dining and sunbathing. Rent both for a large family or a group of friends, or rent separately. Good trekking options start from the cove, lead to adjacent villages with magnificent Mediterranean views. There's good fossil hunting along local trails that wind through Moorish terraced agricultural lands where artichokes and almonds used to be cultivated. The skyline of Alicante, 25 kilometres south on the coast, is visible from the property. The cultural town of Altea, once the haunt of Picasso and Miró, is approximately 20 kilometres north. You can fly to Alicante or take the AVE (bullet) train from Madrid which takes 2.5 hours. If you are here for any length of time, Valencia is a wonderful destination, only 1.5 hours away by car.

Betsy is tri-lingual thanks to her Norwegian father, American mother and having lived in Spain since she was 2. Betsy studied and worked abroad for 8 years in places far and wide, including Oslo, London, Aix-en-Provence and Boston before she settled at Charco in 2001.

Betsy Floistad purchased this cottage in 1966

This place is unique. It is absolutely one of the last untouched enclaves along the Costa Blanca coast.

We accept pets and kids. The property is fenced. Free parking. Private access to the beach. You won't believe how nice it is here. Bring your kayak, your mountain bike or just your hiking shoes to take advantage of the region. Don't forget your water shoes for the rocky beach.

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We started our adventure with Charco in 2013 – day before our “Spanish Holidays” We had car accident and We weren’t able to come and enjoy our vacations.
All year we thought about that lovely place…
In 2014 We have decided try one more time and we booked “our” Charco cottage !!!
When we arrived to Villajoyosa, Betsy came and showed us how we should to drive to her property. That was so helpful and really kindly.
When we saw first time Charco cottage, we been rapt! All place was brethtaking and looked million times better than on the pictures;
Our apartment was lovely, colourful (amazing painting Betsys sister Lisa), incredible tidy (better that 5 star hotel), very,very comfortable, cosy and full equipped from cutlery to 3 different types café kettles!!!
That apartment have everything what you need and even much, much more!
Betsy loves her plant very, very much and you see that everywhere in the hude, beautiful and amazing smelling garden… even apartment was full of fresh flowers (next to bed and on all tables) that was so wonderful and sweet.
Everything was so perfect but one place wasn’t able to describle – PRIVATE bay on the middle paradise. We enjoyed our time on the sunny beach. Sea and water were so wonderful that we spent hours sailed on an inflatable boat… we didn’t want nothing more!
We took thousands pictures and visited many places what Betsy recommended us – restaurants, markets, all cities around (famous chocolate factory Valor in Villajoyosa - brilliant chocolate flavour)
We had the best holidays ever, Betsy and her Familly are like Angels – you don’t see them but you feel Their kindness, helpfulness, hospitality, care and attention. We never met before so wonderful and amazing person like Betsy. She is a STAR!!!!!!
Her Charco cotteges are the most beautiful place on the earth. We will do everything to recommend Charco to our friends and we hope that They will discovery, like we a little bit of paradise in Betsys heaven.
BETSY Thank You for everything what You did for us

Great vacation escape!

  • 5 of 5
This secluded spot is the best plaice to spend your holyday when you want to have undisturbed and comfortable days by the Mediterranean. The house is well equipped and carefully laid out with everything you could possible need from kitchenware to candleholders, tablecloths and children’s beach toys. Even the charcoal grill is just a match away before you can prepare your lamb chops or gambas from the local market. Enjoy spectacular sunrises, a morning swim in an empty beach and falling a sleep to the soothing sound of waves. I highly recommend the Beach cottages in the care of the remarkable friendly hostess, Betsy for a grate holyday!

Przepiekne miejsce

  • 5 of 5
Po urodzeniu naszego drugiego dziecka, postanowilismy pojechac na dluzszy czas do Hiszpanii podczas urlopu macierzynskiego. Spedzilismy w sumie 5 tygodni razem z 6 miesieczna córeczka oraz 4 letnim synem. Miejsce dla rodziny idealne - nie sadze, zebysmy mogli znalezc cos lepszego! Spokój i cisza, kamienna plaza zaraz za ogrodzeniem, przepiekny ogród. Betsy wlozyla w ta posiadlosc bardzo duzo pracy i serca. Na pewno tam jeszcze wrócimy, pewnie bez dzieci, zeby rzeczywiscie móc tam odpoczac i sie wyciszyc!

Wie im Paradies

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren Ende April 2014 für 10 Tage im Beach Cottage und sind begeistert. Für alle Ruhesuchende ein Paradies an der Costa Blanca. Die Cottages sind liebevoll eingerichtet, es ist alles da was man braucht und man hat eine herrliche Sicht auf das Meer. Wir wurden von Betsy und ihre Schwester herzlich empfangen und konnten jederzeit wenn wir Fragen hatten auf die beiden zugehen. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder dort Urlaub machen. :-)

I REALLY recommend this lovely cottage!!!

  • 4 of 5
We really loved this place!! Me and my mum and sister decided to spend the Christmas time in some new place and and we decided to go to Alicante. We found this little sea view cottage and it couldn't be better!
Already when we were booking the place and sending some e-mails we noticed that hostess is a lovely and caring person. Betsy and her sister were very hospitable and they were really interested that everything is ok and you are having a good time! They wanted to help you with everything and it made you feel very comfortable and special!!

When we drived the little rocky road for the cottage , we were thinking that 'oooh loord where we are going' but when we arrived the view and the cottage and everything were so wonderful that we just stayed with our mouths open and we were soooo happy that we had chosen a place like that :-)

The cottage was perfect for us, quiet and very cosy, with a little kitchen and a parlour!! We spent a lot of our time cooking some good food and just relaxing in those comfortable sofas talking and listening the sounds of the sea!! The view from the verandah was sooo beautiful and you could see the sea and just walk to the beach and enjoy!!!

I can recommend this place for everybody but maybe if you want to party a lot or stay in the middle of hustle and bustle, maybe this place is not for you! It's very important to have a car to get there and to visit some places nearby and make some daytrips! This place is more for relaxing and for enjoying the beach, sun, and some beautiful views and good company!!

Too many things to say, so I recommend to go and experience this place ! It is so lovely!

Thanks for Betsy and for her sister of this lovely place!! They made our holiday a lot better just being so nice to us and taking care of some little problems and questions what we had ;-) it wouldn't be the same without those lovely hosts we had!

We definitely have to go back some day!!!
