About Fatima

This house has always belonged to our family and we have recently reformed it to offer maximum comfort.

It is the place where, whenever it is possible, we take a break and where I hope that one day we will retire.

Therefore, we are very glad to offer this opportunity to other families and friends to enjoy this place and we are convinced that they will be very satisfied with the experience and with the charm of the place.

Why Fatima chose Xàbia

This property is ideal for families, children and to be shared among friends.

The house is surrounded by green with lawn all around the lot, with bougainvillea on all the walls of the house that give a special joy with their flours.

The views to the sea and the mountain are very special, especially at night it is possible to see the lighthouse of San Antonio Cape that turns around and you can perfectly see how it works to let the boats know that the land starts there where the light house is and this has a special charm.

Depending on the time of the year and the moment of the day, we use a different terrace with a dining area since we choose one or another according to the time of the day and the location of the sun. This offers to the house the possibility to enjoy its outdoors area at all times.

Indoors there is a living room with a magnificent open fireplace with a big table and extremely comfortable sofas where you can read watch TV or have a nice talk.

The house has only one floor with only 3 stairs that gives access to the rooms, all of which have an ensuite bathroom and large wardrobes. They are all big and well lightened.

The charm of the house is very special because of the height of its ceilings and the wood.

The 10x4 swimming pool has a big sun umbrella and 8 hammocks where you can enjoy the water and the sun. On the terrace, close to the kitchen, there is a dining area with another big sun umbrella. The views to the sea from the terrace are fabulous. On the porch, there is another dining area from where you also have views to the sea and the mountain and in the house there are three dining rooms to choose from as well as a living room with sofas on the porch and another one in the house. At the back of the garden, there are swings for the kids from where they will not want to get down.

What makes this villa unique

Among the advantages to be mentioned are the privacy.

The views, the tranquility and the charm of the place are definitely the most noteworthy characteristics. We also cannot forget that we are in the most beautiful area of the entire Costa Blanca which is Javea, where we can discover unique places with coves, vineyards, mountains etc. Javea is the town in Spain where there are more English people than Spanish. This is definitely because Javea is the best place to rest and enjoy its beauty. The possibilities are numerous. You can do sports close to the nature; enjoy the people with their festivals, little markets, gastronomy, orchards, orange trees, vineyards and a fishing port. Javea is the place that was chosen by the chain Paradores Nacionales to open one of its hotels, the only one in the entire Costa Blanca and this choice makes sense. There are magnificent Roman ruins, sea baths made by them and different archeological remains that can be seen in the museum of Javea. The museum is very interesting as well as the churches and the streets.

Pleasant place and comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 weeks with family and friends and enjoyed the place and Xabia.

Rooms are comfortable and air conditionned is a must.

With 5000 sqm lot we had space so not to close neighbors as a lot of parties happened.

Pool was ok even a bit hot ! The best place was under the porch for long drink times.

Kitchen is a bit small to prepare food for 8 but we managed.

Thanks Fatima for the perfect organization.

Härligt välutrustat hus med bra läge

Avskilt lugnt läge. Bra för storfamilj med små barn. Bil krävs för strand & affärer/restauranger. Vi kommer gärna igen

Very nice house, with big garden and great view in beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 12 days in this house with 2 small children and 3 adults. We were very comfortably situated with 4 bedrooms, all with private bathroom. The house sits almost at the top of the hill of the beautiful El Tosalet neighborhood, which gives a very nice view from the house, porch, garden and pool area. The outside area really sets this property apart: options on all sides to enjoy sun or shade (pool looks somewhat bigger in picture, but still nice size for dipping and smaller children). The owner is very helpful, and from El Tosalet it is easy to get to Javea, Moraira and beautiful rocky coves in between.

All in all we had a very enjoyable holiday here, and would definitely recommend it!

Magnifica Villa rodeada de vegetación y serenidad.

  • 5 of 5

La vida la hemos hecho sobre todo en el exterior, disfrutando del jardín con una gran pradera, árboles frondosos donde debajo de ellos hemos leído y echado siestas. La piscina tiene un buen tamaño y esta vallada para la seguridad de los niños, las hamacas son nuevas. Los muebles, sábanas, toallas, y vajillas son de buena calidad. Las habitaciones son amplias y muy independientes, está toda ella muy cuidada y nueva.

La orientación es inmejorable, con unas vistas al mar y al cabo de San Antonio que hacen de la estancia algo único. Por la noche se ve la luz del faro.

Sin ninguna duda la recomiendo tanto para parejas, como para familias.

Octubre ha sido maravillosa la temperatura, bañándonos en el mar y la piscina todos los días.

Javea offers many possibilities for water sports (sailing, jet ski, canoe, wind surf, diving, etc.), mountain sports and hiking, Karting, little markets, tennis clubs, fishing of all types, ideal for cyclists, excursions all along the coast with lonely caves and coves. Excellent gastronomy with Michelin starred restaurants (Quique Da Costa, a 3 star restaurant is 20 km away), Casa Pepa, a one-star restaurant is 15 km away.

There is a magnificent leisure port where you can take sailing classes and rent boats with or without a skipper if you wish to sail to Formentera and Ibiza. In 2,5 hours you can get to these islands.

It is one of the best areas in Spain to go scuba diving or snorkeling since its flora and marine life is very rich. It is also interesting to see the fishing port when the tuna and the swordfish are unloaded and you can buy your fish there. It is the village which has the biggest number of festivals where you can enjoy the people and their traditions.

For golf lovers, there are two golf courts 15 km away where you can enjoy this sport.

In Javea there is a cinema and 15 km away there is a multiplex and a big shopping mall with shops like Zara etc.

There are equestrian centers where you can go horse riding.

You can rent any kind of boat to see the coves. Javea from the sea has a unique perspective.

There are magnificent trails for hiking that put together mountain, flora and sea with caves (Cueava Tallada). Climb to mount Montgo where the view to the city is unique and from where you can see the island of Ibiza.

In Javea there is an important tennis club with one of the best schools of this sport in Spain. David Ferrer, a top 10 tennis player in the ATP, was trained in this school. Javea is for sure the most attractive town in Costa Blanca.
