Overview

Altea Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Ideal for 2 people who want to get away from it all !!!!

This bungalow is located mid way between Altea and La Nucia down a quiet country lane with spectacular rural mountain views.A car is essential. Car port on the property to keep your car cool.The bungalow is well fitted out to a high standard - all your home comforts are here!!! A little piece of paradise!!! The feedback from our visitors has been wonderful - The questionaire they filled in many 10 out of 10 and in the guestbook they said there was very little extra we could provide to make a better holiday for them. All who have been to stay this year say the property is far superior to the actual photos. Some have returned for a second and third visit .Please book early to avoid disappointment!!!

Evening meals can be provided at a reasonable charge or why not watch a traditional paella made and for you to enjoy at lunchtime with home made Sangria..

Peace and tranquility!: This bungalow adjoins the owners property and they are set in nearly 3000 square metre of garden, with shrubs, fruit trees and floral areas together with a vegetable plot (when produce are ready you are welcome to pick your own. There is your own covered terrace for the shade you will need in the hot summers for a leisurely breakfast of freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice! There are lots of areas in the large gardens for you to sit in the sun or shade and in privacy to while away the hours. The swimming pool has easy access with wide steps for your use only. (Owners do not use the pool when visitors are using it.)

Many of our visitors have had good intentions to visit places of interest - when they sit in the sun or shade for a few minutes - time has just ebbed away together with the stress of their everyday working life!!!!

The best place for you to 'Chill out'

People who have stayed said it was a wonderful area for mountain climbing ,walking and cycling

Within 30 minutes you have the choice of the wonderful white villages, Guadalest is a must for any visitor to this area, also the Algar falls, if you are brave enough to swim under the waterfall in the cold mountain water.

About Mrs Hazel Layt

My husband and I are originally from Yorkshire - we have lived in Spain since 1982.We retired 8 years ago after selling our Auction House. We let to holidaymakers in in 2009 and this was the first time it had been let, it had previously been used by friends.We have had some wonderful visitors many returning 3rd and 4th visits.We are on hand should you wish to know anything about the area ie where to visit, shop and restaurants etc - you have your own space and nearly 3000 square metre of garden. We chose to buy our home and build Little Lair in this quiet backwater in the open countryside minutes to Altea, La Nucia and Alfaz del Pi.

Mrs Hazel Layt purchased this bungalow in 1988

Why Mrs Hazel Layt chose Altea

The property speaks for itself - WHY NOT come and stay with us in peaceful surroundings and get the same enjoyment we have 365 days a year!!

All our visitors cannot be wrong!!!!!

What makes this bungalow unique

We are off the beaten track and NOT on an urbanisation and yet only minutes from 3 villages and the beach!!! You have many choices to sit in the garden whether it is in full sun or the shade.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing holiday at Little Lair. It is very clean and well equipped and in a perfect location. The pool and gardens are lovely., It is far enough away from all the hustle and bustle to feel like you are really getting away from it all, but still very convenient for days out. We were able to drive from Alicante airport and spend a week going out and about all on one tank of petrol. We saw beaches, mountains, lilttle villages and there were so many markets we could have visited one every day. As all the other reviewers have said, Hazel and Tony were were helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They even invited us to join them in a local restaurant one night and drove us around to give us some tips for our days out, and when I left a pair of earrings behind Hazel posted them back to me straight away, together with a lovely card. We can definitely recomment Little Lair.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property is immaculate, so many places to rest and read or pick oranges and grapefruit. Hazel and Tony were great and did everything to make our stay enjoyable. Little Lair is just charming, we felt completely relaxed and have no hesitation in recommending Little Lair to any couple looking for rest, relaxation and great views.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

the property was clean and had all the things needed to make your stay comfortable . Hazel and Tony were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble , even though they live next door they were very unobtrusive . It was good that they were there as we could get some local knowledge of where to eat and where was good to visit. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property for a lovely relaxing holiday.

Fabulous ... just fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Having stopped holidaying in hotel rooms 15 years ago – hubby and I like our own space and the ability to eat what we want when we want to eat it – we have stayed in over 25 villas and apartments all over Europe both in the winter for skiing and the summer for sunbathing and relaxing.

This property is easily by far the best value for money. We never go back to the same property twice … except this one! We stayed for 16 nights in September 2012 and loved it so much we stayed 18 nights in September 2013 having booked and paid the deposit before we left!

Everything about it is impossible to fault – from the booking process, to the directions of how to get there, the welcome from Hazel and Tony, the location and the actual property itself. It is definitely a home from home with everything you could possibly think you may need there – from corkscrews and tin openers in the kitchen to slippers in the bedroom. And it is spotlessly clean.

You also get all the Freeview TV channels so no missing favourite programmes and free access to the owners’ wifi. And that, as I am trying to write a balanced review, is the only fault I can think of. The wifi strength is excellent in the bedroom, a bit slow in the lounge and that’s it. But hey, you don’t want to be answering emails when you are supposed to be relaxing.

We didn’t explore the area much as we wanted to do nothing but sunbathe, swim, read and get a good tan. However, what we did see was lovely – Altea is definitely a village worth visiting.

Due to other commitments in 2014 we can’t go back, but have already booked for September 2015. And that says it all. We never go back to the same property twice let alone three times … except this one!

Owner's Response: Thank you Suzie for another positive review - maybe next time you may get to see more of the area!!!! At least you go back to work fully refreshed and ready to go!! New Wifi fitted!!! Hazel and Tony.

Absolute heaven!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 week stay at Little Lair. From a very warm welcome on our arrival to them being there to wave us off when we left, nothing was too much trouble for Hazel and Tony.

The description of the property and its location was extremely accurate. The directions we were given made it very easy to find it.

Little Lair is a very comfortable property and there were many lovely places in the garden to sit and enjoy the wonderful weather before jumping into the pool to cool off.

We would certainly recommend this property to family and friends.

The attention we received from Hazel and Tony was second to none. Advice was readily available if we wished it and we enjoyed spending time with them .

We love the Altea area very much and it's beautiful coastline. Other places we enjoyed visiting were Moraira, Guadelest, Algar Falls and La Marina Shopping Centre at Finestrat when a bit of retail therapy was required!

Hazel and Tony recommended a number of restaurants to us which we enjoyed and we also found Amix which is a restaurant on the promenade in Altea which was open for both lunch and dinner. Excellent food, beautifully presented, and not too expensive.

Map

Nearest Restaurant
5 Kilometres
Large choice in Altea or La Nucia
Car: necessary

In Altea it has many streets with white washed houses and floral displays on the walls leading to an old church and square with wonderful views to Albir and Benidorm in the distance. La Nucia is another quaint village with the original wash house where the local ladies still take their washing occasionally. If you motor away from the coast you will come across lots of the white villages and with old Spanish customs or just sit at home and take away the stress of modern living in the garden or pool.

Supermarket 3-4 minutes by car or 15 minutes walk away.

If it is nature and wildlife you enjoy there is Terra Natura - exotic animals and Mundomar where you can enjoy the dolphins, penguins etc.

Wonderful mountain climbing, cycling and walking region.

Altea Fiestas - last week in September

3 evenings of parades lasting about 3 hours each evening!!with wonderful firework displays.

La Nucia fiesta late August

The fiesta in Altea and La Nucia we can clearly hear the music and the fireworks.

Callosa de Ensarria fiestas - October

Many Moors and Christian fiestas - wonderful parades of costumes and musical bands!!

The property at the other side of our lane have several fiesta for their grand children 4-5 times a year!

Golf: Choice of 2 golf courses with 15 minutes drive and another one 25 minutes away

The only extra you would have to pay is for the electricity you use.(Gas also Oct-April) We do not charge extra for cleaning etc as most people leave it tidy and we do have cleaners come after each let. If there is anything else you wish to know about the property or the area - PLEASE ask!!!!! Have a look at other properties but we believe this is the BEST for 2 people.
