A super family holiday
Casa Doric is great family villa notable for it's beautiful, spacious garden and elevated position.
Both the inside and outside space is very well kept and the managing agent was most attentive.
The local beach is lovely for dipping into the Med whilst exploring other coastal spots is easy and fun with the nearby tram system
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at the villa and you are welcome back any time.
Thanks for choosing Casa Doric
Great property - with lovely pool
We booked Casa Doric and had a lovely time. The location is very peaceful and quiet, and the pool and terrace area are wonderful for spending lazy holiday days. The villa itself is clean and well decorated - although not as well equipped as we've had in the past - for example some of the pans were very old and whilst there are 3 or 4 coffee makers in the property, the only one that worked was the one with an English plug, which was fine, but bizarre.
A couple of things it's important to know about the property location - and which other reviews mention. You will need a car! There is no shop - not even a kiosk - in Venta Lanuza. The nearest supermarket is in El Campello, which is 20 mins away in a car. The tram is amazing for getting along the coast, and is a short walk from the villa, but there are only 2 an hour. On a more positive note though, it's a great location if you want a quiet jumping off point for walking and cycling as the mountains are really close by. You can also do a good range of water sports and visit a wide range of beaches.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, we take on board your comments about the pots and pans and although some were renewed at the beginning of the season we will make sure new ones are supplied for future rentals.
The coffee machines are always getting replaced as they don't seem to last a season, the English one must have been a replacement from the owners kitchen as a back up. We will get a couple of new ones.
I am sorry you didn't find the local shop at the top of the hill by the Poblet, it is a 5 minute drive and there is also a small shop at the Pueblo Acantilado Suites which is 4 minutes from the villa.
The welcome document that we send out along with the hand book that comes with the villa does list all the local amenities, beeches shops and bars and restaurants, and also gives you the tram times.
Excellent property, great 2 weeks
Owners were helpful, pool was amazing kids loved it. Enjoyed the time at the villa & we would recommend it to anyone with a family wanting to chill and have family time
Great experience in sunny Spain
Upon arrival the villa was in a good shape and it was very clean. We had all in all a great experience in this villa although the location was a little off from the supermarkets and restaurants. The villa and the garden were beautiful and the pool was nice, although at this time of the year the water is cold. There was enough sun chairs at the pool to relax in. The villa was very spacious for six people. Kitchen had all the amenities needed including some very luxiours, like the washing machine.
The area is very peaceful and the sea is close by. The only problem wchich is not a big one is that in order to get to a supermarket you have to take a train. Good thing is that the train station is not so far away. There are not many restaurants in the walking distance either, although Jet set beach bar is close and it's a great place to enjoy the sun and the sea. The bigger town, Campello is easy to get to and there are lots of shops and restaurants and a beatiful beach. It's also very easy to take a train to Alicante.
Thank you for this lovely vacation!
We are very pleased you enjoyed your vacation at Casa Doric, and thank you for taking the time to write a review.
You would be most welcome back at any time in the future.
We stayed at the villa in the October half term arriving in the early hours of a Sunday morning. The villa was well lit up for us and our first impression was the pristine condition of the place. The layout is very spacious, big comfortable bedrooms with lovely views of the sea and mountains whilst the two bathrooms have great powerful showers. Beautiful tiled floors throughout give the place a very clean and bright feel. The outside area is the absolute star of this property, we didn't feel the pictures did it enough justice. The pool is awesome, nice and deep at one end for the kids (and dad) to jump and dive in. The gardens are beautiful and very private, very well maintained and very big and like the indoors immaculate. A shower by the pool again very powerful and perfect for cooling off after lying in the sun on the comfy loungers. There is a nice big balcony/terrace overlooking the pool, ideal for relaxing in the evening watching the kids swimming in the floodlit pool. The villa is in a beautiful neighbourhood, surrounded by views of the coast and mountains, a beach bar is five minutes walk away which we found welcoming and relaxed. I walked to the local supermarket which took about 30 minutes so might be an idea to stock up at El campello if you have no car. We took advantage of the welcome pack on arrival which had everything we needed to keep us going for a couple of days until we got to the shop. We used the tram to explore the area, it was easy to use, regular and cheap, El Campello being our favourite place for restaurants and strolling in the evening.
If we had to find any criticism of the villa it would be that the outside area was so good we didn't feel the need to use the indoors much! Our daughter chose to spend her 11th birthday round the pool instead of going to the water park at Benidorm! This was probably the most relaxing holiday we've had as a family thanks to the property and would return at the drop of a hat. Many thanks to Nick and the team in Spain.
We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Casa Doric, and thank you for taking the time to write a review. You would be most welcome back any time.
Overall very Relaxing Enjoyable stay
Excellent communications throughout. The property was very clean with plenty living space (we were 6 adults aged 22 - 58) but outside which is where we spent all our time more than met our expectations. We didn't hire a car and although there isn't much in this area its about 7min walk to the train which is excellent service. Our children in their 20's explored using the train to el campello and Benidorm among other places we did a little exploring but preferred to make the most of the peace and quiet at the beautiful villa and walks to the beach. The only problem was the fridge/freezer broke down but management came straight out spoke to Nick who agreed to us using his personal fridge (under villa) until the brand new one was delivered excellent service. We visited local bars beach bar had live music and all within walking distance although a little hilly we are in our 50's but managed fine. Ask would we visit again that's a definite yes. Thank you Nick and co for a wonderful holiday.
We are delighted you and your familly enjoyed your holiday at Casa Doric, and we look forward to you returning some time in the future, you would be welcome.Thanks for taking the time to post a review,
Casa Doric is located 500 meters from a sandy beach in a small and quiet bay located within a short 5 minute drive or tram ride away from the large town of El Campello. Venta Lanuza is a small bay offering a handful of bars and restaurants, two smaller supermarkets, sandy beach and small boating marina. The beach is very safe for swimming, with a lifeguard during the summer months, there is a great beach bar located on the beach offering drinks and snacks, parasol and sunbed hire. Venta Lanuza is on a great transport link, the tram station is a five minute walk from the villa, running every hour day and night during the summer months, to El Campello, San Juan and on to Alicante and in the other direction to Villa Joyosa, Benidorm and even as far as Denia. The tram is a great and easy way to get around and take in some of the Coast line. El Campello is a perfect destination, offering 22km of golden sand beaches, marina, weekly markets, restaurants, shops and bars...there is even a children's club set up on the beach for small children to take advantage of with face painting, drawing and games...all for free. El Campello is a lovely place to visit and wander around the cobbled streets within the older part of this town. Located just 10 minutes from the centre of Alicante. Situated between the historic Alicante and lively Benidorm, this villa has everything a family or family’s could wish for! Transfer time from Alicante airport is just 20 minute drive, we can also arrange private taxi transfer
