What makes this House unique
Close to the city of Valencia (20 minutes by car), but also quite rural. Spectacular views and close to the heart of the village. Private and secluded, but not remote. Only a ten minute walk to the village centre and train station. The best beach in the area is only 15 minutes by car. Within easy reach of the airport and less than 15 minutes to the nearest Metro station. Perfectly positioned to explore this region of Spain.

Amazing place, great views, and lots of space!
The procedures prior to, and reception upon arrival was very friendly, and accommodating. Sylvia and Kevin even prepared a package with some food and drinks (ice cold beers!) as a welcome gift (the supermarket is closed on Sundays, our arrival day)
We stayed for two weeks at the house, having up to 7 guests at the same time during those weeks, which were easily and comfortably accommodated.
The nice thing about this house is the division into separate area's, like the pool, playroom, outdoor dining, BBQ deck etc. so that anyone can find an area to relax, and have one's own space.
The views are amazing, makes you feel like the King of the Valley, and has the sun on the pool area all day long.
The village of Gilet is within a few minutes driving, (10 mins on foot) and has an excellent supermarket, and some local shops. Connection to the highway to Valencia or the beaches is minutes from the village, so all within 20-25 minutes by car.
The top 2 floors are a "normal" (but nice and luxurious) house, which we hardly used, spending all our times downstairs and outdoors. The downstairs area has a small kitchen, fridge and all the utensils and china required to have all meals at the pool area, without lugging stuff up and down. Very convenient!
Long story short: great place for a large group!
Thank you for your very kind and informative comments. It was lovely to meet you both and we’re so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the views! We would be very happy to welcome you back anytime.
A really beautiful house with incredible views across the hills. Sylvia and Kevin were extremely welcoming when we arrived, and the house was just as hospitable. Wonderfully presented, well-provisioned and full of useful information and advice to help you make the most of your stay in the area. Our group of eleven had a perfect holiday and would love to return and do everything all over again: relaxing in the house and pool, experiencing Valencia, walking the local hills, a boat tour through the Coves de Sant Josep, swimming in the Montanejos springs, visiting the beaches and water parks, and all falling very much in love with the baker at a little local cake shop on Carrer de la Sèquia (who was very patient with our limited Spanish and regular visits)! Thank you so much!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday, the house and the surrounding area. Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family and we would be delighted to welcome you all back at any time!
Allt was perfect, the hosts, the house and the company.
Thank you for your review. We are very happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you all again in the future.
Fantastic villa in a beautiful location
6 of us stayed here is September 2015 and thought this villa was brilliant. The pool area in particular really impressed us. Unfortunately it was a bit windy on the terrace, but the pool room was great for meals and we had an excellent week. Sylvia was extremely helpful and provided some good tips on the local area. All in all a fabulous holiday. Thank you Sylvia and Kevin!
We are very happy that you all enjoyed your stay and very impressed that you completed the walks in the local hills. Thank you for your kind review and we would be delighted to see you all again.
The best holiday
Stayed here with my family of 10, there was more than enough space for all of us. Our host Sylvia couldn't do enough for us giving us a warm welcome. The villa was amazing and as stated by a previous review the pictures don't do it justice. I would highly recommend this villa we all had a great time.
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you all and I am so glad that you enjoyed your holiday. We hope to see you again should you be visiting this area in the future.
The house was simply amazing, we were a large family group in Spain for a wedding and it was perfect. The kitchen and dining room were great for the family and the kids all had a fantastic time in the pool and there was lots of other things for them to do in the house as well. The views from the pool are stunning and the local town and beach in Canet very picturesque, all in all an amazing holiday.
We are so pleased that the house suited you all and that you had a great holiday. Thank you for your review. We would be pleased to welcome you back should you be visiting the area in the future.
