Overview

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.

About Betsy Floistad

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

Why Betsy Floistad chose Villajoyosa

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

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Wunderbarer Urlaub am perfekten Ort

  • 5 of 5
Das Sea View Cottage ist absolut empfehlenswert. Meine Freundin und ich hatten eine wunderschöne, entspannte Woche dort, abseits von all dem Trubel der nahegelegenen Hotelburgen, mit eigenem Zugang zu einem tollen Strand, einem Garten mit Blick auf eben diesen und dem Meer, Betsy als eine der herzlichsten Gastgeberinnen, die man sich vorstellen können, einem tollen sauberen Haus, dem es an nichts fehlte und einer tollen Lage: Etwas abgeschieden, aber dennoch nicht weit weg von den nächsten sehenswerten Städten. Wir werden wieder kommen, eventuell dann auch mit Freunden und/oder Hunden. Es war inspirierend und ein tolles Erlebnis. Danke für alles.

Delightful holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful holiday from beginning to end. Everything was exactly as described on the website, the travel instructions and other information (such as no need to bring towels but do bring jelly shoes for swimming) provided by Betsy was clear and helpful so our holiday got off to a great start.
The cottage is in a brilliant location for a peaceful holiday. It was perfectly clean and well-maintained with all the essentials already there so we were able to get into swimsuits right away rather than have to immediately go shopping. There are lots of different comfortable spaces to read or just watch the sea or the clouds making patterns on the hills - from the terrace by the cottage, from the terrace by the sea, in the lovely garden or even indoors. The living room is well furnished and is made much more interesting than the usual fairly sterile holiday home by the addition of artwork by Lise Floistad.
Beds are comfy, wardrobes spacious with lots of hangers, there's an efficient shower in the bathroom. There is no oven but cooking facilities are completely adequate with a good modern hob and microwave/grill and a barbecue that even I managed to use with my non-existent barbecuing skills. Although we ate out most days - Villajoyosa is only a few minutes drive away and has good restaurants.
The beach is a delight, pebbly but with sand a few feet out in the sea and is generally deserted except at the weekend (although it's hardly crowded even then). And there's nothing nicer than having a beach at the end of the garden - I wasn't even tempted by the long sandy beach at Villajoyosa.
There's probably some good walking around the area but the temperature was unseasonably high (or I was too lazy) to do much - I did walk around the El Charco urbanization and climb the occasional hill to take photographs though.
Both Villajoyosa and Alicante old towns and marinas are worth exploring (and both towns have fab trendy untraditional tapas restaurants that don't charge the earth!). It's a short journey to take a day out inland too - we went to Guadalest, which despite being quite touristy is fascinating, and we explored the mountains by driving through Sella and Finestrat areas. The mountains are such a contrast to the beach and continually change as the light changes through the day.
All in all, a great holiday destination for peace, quiet, taking things easy and enjoying the environment but easily reachable and close to good town facilities.

Un petit paradis loin du monde

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons été enchantés par l’accueil de Betsy et notre séjour dans la maison.
Dès notre arrivée nous sommes conquis par le dynamisme, la générosité et la gentillesse de Betsy. Elle nous fait découvrir sa jolie maison face à la mer. Elle est très pratique, agréable, rien ne manque, c’est comme chez soi !
Et le jardin est splendide. Il nous donne directement accès à la plage par un petit escalier. La vue est superbe.
Et c’est un plaisir d’entendre le bruit des vagues. On vit avec la mer, le soleil, les fleurs et les plantes, la nature, loin de l’agitation du monde.
Un grand merci à Betsy pour ses vacances inoubliables.

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!

Plus, we finally have WiFi, albeit temperamental!
