Peaceful Mountain Hamlet

  • 4 of 5

If you want a quiet and peaceful mountain retreat this is the place! Gorgeous mountain and valley views! Very small mountain village. Perfect for adventure, hiking and scenic mountain drives. Several small villages nearby to visit and sample the different local foods. The home here is comfortable. We stayed in Late December so the outside temperature was very cool early morning and nighttime. Cool but pleasant and comfortable during the day. The home has enough heat from pellet heating stove and electric heaters if needed. This was a great place to relax, cook meals and enjoy the mountain retreat. Tom was very responsive before and during our stay. We would definitely return. Would love to experience Abdet in the spring or summer!

Fantastic location for walking, running & cycling

  • 5 of 5

A week of fantastic guided runs with around 60 miles and 20,000ft of ascent which excludes our sunrise and sunset adventures.

Comfy accommodation, great food and a perfect host Thomas has been happy to accommodate us with all our requests.

Looking forward to coming back and exploring the region even more.

Good property in a great location for a relaxing quiet holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion over a school Autumn half term holiday in this property. We pick this place mainly because one member in our family is a keen hiker and a cyclist to which provided plenty of walking routes. We visited Guadalest castle, Benidorm and Calp beach, Water fall of Algar, Castle ruins near Benifarto during our stay and all within an hours drive.

The property is well equipped and we had a comfortable holiday during our stay. The only downside to the property is that the internet was very slow and unavailable most of our stay and the electric load to the property is not adequate to use multiple appliances at the same time. But the owner has kept us well informed on these issues and it didn't prevent us from having a great time.

Perfect trail running in spectacular scenery

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tom & Penny, every time I leave your wonderful place in Abdet I can't wait to come back the next time. A week of running, dining and drinking with you and your other guests recharges me better than anything else I've ever done. I always come back rested in body and soul despite having put in 80 miles plus over those glorious mountains and feeling fitter than I've felt for months. Thanks again.

Clean, comfortable, peaceful holiday cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Great comfortable base for our road cycling trip. Abdet in September was warm and sunny with a pleasant freshness in the air. Cycling out everyday on the well maintained, quiet roads was a delight. Stopping off at small mountain villages for coffee's and lunch gave us a real taste of the true Spain. Fantastic!

Great location for walking and cycling.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice traditional house with simply amazing views from the roof terrace. Lots of options for walking in the surrounding mountains. Some beautiful villages to explore and ruined castles, wildlife, etc. Saw some incredible vultures on one walk, and even Golden Eagles!

About Tom Phillips

I love to climb, cycle, walk and run in the beautiful valley!

Tom Phillips purchased this house in 2004

Why Tom Phillips chose Abdet

This is "real" Spain. amazing scenery, friendly village atmosphere, great views from the roof terrace!

What makes this house unique

It's a great base for cycling, walking, or rock climbing. Many walks right from the house, free guides available. The road cycling is superb, quiet roads and amazing Alpine style mountain passes. Rock climbing - 1000's of climbs in the valley, and just a short walk to the nearest crags!
