And that’s all before you explore the beautiful region of Valencia! Enjoy the city centre attractions and the gorgeous sandy beaches of this region whilst discovering the charming, traditional Spanish towns and villages and stunning inland, rural scenery - all within 1 holiday.

Please take a look at our guest reviews to find out what previous guests have to say about the villa and the surrounding area.

This traditional Spanish villa has been beautifully renovated and refurbished by its new owners in Autumn 2014/ Spring 2015. It is a fantastic home-from-home featuring 3 good sized bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms. The main inside living space has been opened up and transformed to offer a large living/ dining/ kitchen area. This creates the perfect, sociable living environment for cooking, dining and relaxing in. The kitchen has been fully modernised and features brand new kitchen equipment such as fridge freezer, dishwasher, hob, cooker and microwave. There is also a washing machine in the downstairs storage room.

Free wi-fi internet access is available (with your own laptop/ smartphone/ IPad), plus there is a 40 inch flat screen TV with Satellite TV, DVD player, I-Pod dock and CD player. To keep you entertained, there is a selection of books, DVD's & games. The owners have thoughtfully provided maps and guidebooks for the local area so you can plan your days out to make the most of your holiday. There is air-conditioning in 2 bedrooms, an electric fan in bedroom 3 & ceiling fans in the lounge plus radiators (for winter bookings).

You can eat breakfast on the balcony, relax in the very private garden surrounded by lovely fruit trees, cool off in your private swimming pool, play with your children in the garden, then chill out on the spacious shady terrace during the heat of the day.

The owners have recently upgraded the swimming pool area in April 2015. The swimming pool is 8 x 4 metres and is 1.4 metres deep. There are corner, roman styled steps into the pool. This area is perfect for family fun or catching a few rays in your sun lounger.

Fantastic extras provided by the owner include a gas BBQ, plus you can have fun playing table tennis, badminton, boules & darts. There is plenty of outdoor furniture such as sun loungers, deck chairs, parasol and outdoor table. Beach towels are supplied so save on valuable luggage space.

The local supermarket is only about 8 minutes drive away, and boasts an impressive fish counter and great selection of food and wine, so you can stock up on your groceries with ease. There is a cafe/ bar and pharmacy next to this supermarket and also a restaurant a little further along the same road. The nearest village (called Godelleta) with all local amenities is about 10 minutes drive away.

After unwinding and enjoying chilled out days at the villa, you may be ready to get out and explore Valencia, which is Spain's 3rd largest city. There is so much to see in this amazing city. A 'must' is to visit the futuristic City of Science and Arts (which includes the amazing Oceangraphic aquarium), Bioparc Zoo & Jardin del Turia. Valencia is full of historical interest especially as the cathedral is said to be the home of the Holy Grail. Make the effort to climb the many steps of the tower for stunning views over the city. Then take time to discover the Barrio Carman (old quarter) with its old cobbled streets, plazas and traditional café bars. There are many interesting monuments, museums & parks to discover as well as lots of art galleries. Other places of interest are the La Lonja de la Seda (the former silk exchange), the Bull ring & Mercardo (the traditional, large indoor market). Plus there is also the modern marina built to host the America's Cup as well as the old port to explore. Football fans should visit Mestalla (the home of the Valencia football team). If you don't want to drive into Valencia, it is cheap & easy to catch the train from Chiva or get the metro from Torrent.

Just off the A3 motorway (about a 15 minute drive, near the airport) is the fantastic Bonaire shopping mall. This is home to lots of outlets stores and famous name shops such as Zara, Mango, Primark and many more. There is a huge Al Campo hypermarket, lots of restaurants and fast food outlets to choose from, plus a cinema and bowling alley.

The Valencian region also has stunning scenery to explore with lakes, mountains, rural & historical towns & villages. Walkers will enjoy the Sierra Calderona natural park with its unspoilt sea views, pine forests & well marked footpaths. The Reserva Muele de Cortes is another lovely nature reserve. Closer to the coast is the Albufera freshwater lagoon & the stunning long sandy beaches of El Saler. Make sure you try the authentic paella at El Palmer which is the home of Valencian paella.

This is an important agricultural area of Spain, therefore all kinds of fresh produce is grown locally. You will see the fruit trees and grapevines in the surrounding fields and valleys. You can take a winery tour in the nearby town of Requena. Take time to visit the warm water canyon at Montanejos, admire the Navajas waterfalls, sail through the beautiful Coves of Saint Joseph or discover the historical towns of Xativa & Sagunto. Other activities on offer in the region include boat hire, sailing lessons, wind-surfing, jet-ski, diving lessons, fishing, cycling, horse riding, motor racing events & golf.

Why not experience the Spanish culture & stay at the villa during a local fiesta? Las Fallas is usually 15-19 March each year and La Tomatina .. the tomato throwing festival in nearby Bunol is the last Wednesday in August. New Years Eve is also a big event in Valencia City.

As there is so much to do in the area, car hire is essential to get the most out of your stay. It is best to pre-book before you travel the best rates. Valencia Manises airport is only a short 20 minute drive to the house. Fly here with Easyjet from London Gatwick. Ryanair now fly to Valencia from London Stansted, Manchester, East Mids, Dublin, Bristol, Frankfurt, Brussels, Dusseldorf. Some previous guests have also used Alicante and Barcelona airports as the motorway network is excellent in this part of Spain.

You will receive a travel pack before you go on holiday with directions from the airport, key information and emergency contact details, plus there is a guest manual in the villa with ideas of where to shop, eat out and places to visit during your holiday.

About Nicola Rides

My name is Nicola and I run a small holiday lettings business called Maison-Sol Holiday Rentals. Currently I manage 10 properties in Spain and Turkey. I rent this holiday home on behalf of the owners and have visited it for my family holiday in May 2013 so please feel free to ask any questions.

I have worked in sales and marketing in the holiday industry for a leading holiday company before setting up my own business, and have been renting out holiday properties now for 10 years. I am also an overseas property owner myself as I have my own holiday home on the Bodrum Peninsula in Turkey.

Nicola Rides purchased this villa in 2014

Why Nicola Rides chose Valencia

This property has changed ownership in summer 2014 however I have managed the rentals since 2009 with the previous owners. The current owners purchased this property as it is in a semi rural location so is not isolated. This villa offers a really convenient place to stay outside of Valencia city but still provides easy access to the cultural and historical aspects of the city (as well as the shops) without having the constant hustle and bustle staying in city centre accommodation. It is sometimes nice to escape the city to a more relaxing location at the end of the day.

Valencia also has an interesting old port area and a 5 mile stretch of beach and promenade running to the north, whilst to the south of the city are stunning natural sand dunes and long stretches of sandy beaches.

The house is located a short 20 minute drive from Valencia airport which means there is no lengthy drive after getting off the place to get to your accommodation. We also have guests fly into Barcelona and Alicante as well due to the excellent road network in this part of Spain. The villa is situated about 5-6 km from the A-3 Madrid-Valencia motorway and about 7-8km from the A-7 motorway which runs north to Barcelona and up into France. The A-7 also goes south from Valencia down to Alicante and Murcia. This makes it easy to drive here from other areas of Spain or from France, Germany or other European countries.

What makes this villa unique

This house has a spacious feel to it due the open plan aspect of the lounge/ kitchen/ dining space. It enjoys its own gardens with a private swimming pool in a semi rural urbanisation (not isolated on its own in the middle of nowhere). There is a lovely, shady patio with a dining table, gas BBQ and paella pan.

Games, books, DVD's and maps are supplied for the use of our guests. FREE wi-fi internet is available so you can connect your technology to the wireless network which is great for kids gadgets or if you need to bring your laptop for work purposes. Plus to keep you entertained during your holiday, the owners have kindly provided darts, table tennis, basketball net, badminton and boules.

You can have a really varied holiday experience when staying here. Combine beach, city, rural and activities all into one holiday.

Great villa to stay at and explore the area from

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of two adults and two boys aged 4 and 6 and spent a week based here re-discovering Valencia and the surrounding area having lived in Valencia some years ago.

The property is great to spend time outside due to the garden, pool, games, BBQ... And to spend time inside, if necessary, due to the space, DVDs, games, kitchen, etc. The rural setting makes it quite different to the resort or town-based villas in the Valencia area but is still close enough to get to the beaches, city and other local attractions.

We would gladly recommend this place and can imagine ourselves coming back again to finish re-discovering the many places we ran out of time to see this time !

Super realxing stay in a wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with 3 children (2 teenagers) and we found the stay in the Yellow House very relaxing and loved the pool. The house is very well equipped, clean and large enough for our family of 5. We spent a lot of our time relaxing ether by the pool or playing games (table tennis, boules, football) with our children. The internet was fantastic and allow our children to keep in contact with there friends at home. Evenings were filled by having BBQ's and sitting outside and later (after dark) we spent time watching films and TV.

The house is in a remote location so a car is critical, although within 30 minute drive there are loads of restaurants and places to visit, including Valencia which we explored on a number of occasions. If visiting with children I would recommend visit Montanejos, where you can swim in the springs.

Finally the property agent (Nicola) was very professional and the cleaning and maintenance staff that visited to change linen and cleaning the pool were very friendly and really nice people to talk too. I would personally high recommend this property and should we visit the area again we would look to rebook.

Nice villa

  • 4 of 5

Very nice villa in a quiet location, clean & well maintained. Property manager was quick to respond to any issues. Pool was very nice & garden was enormous. Table tennis, boules, darts & badminton equipment available. Very useful information folder provided. Approx 5 mins drive to nearest supermarket, 30-45 mins to Valencia & El Saler beach. Quite a limited range of restaurants nearby so we dined in most evenings. The only slight disappointment was the quality of the crockery & glassware - it was a bit of a random selection of old & mismatched pieces, many of which were chipped & cracked or were so old that the glaze had worn off. But overall I would recommend this villa.

Beautiful, spacious, relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa on a recommendation from a friend and it was perfect. Really spacious, lots of room for the kids to play, a very good size pool and surrounding area for sun loungers. Beautifully decorated and well maintained. Everything there you needed, including BBQ and even a paella hut! Only 20 mins from airport and the beautiful city of Valencia. Thank you for our stay, we will definitely be booking again and recommending to friends and family.

Spacious villa set in a huge beautiful garden.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is set in a quiet area within a short drive from Godetta village. The views from the living room down the valley are lovely and provide a refreshing breeze in the hotter days. The open plan living area allowed the whole family to hang out together. The lovely pool area was newly done when we stayed and had modern rattan furniture to sun the day away. We didn't eat that much in restaurants as we preferred to dine outside overlooking the gardens, I eat many plums off the tree as they were ripe. Lots of parking space in the drive, we had three cars parked comfortably. We liked to drive around the near by villages, which have loads of Spanish charm. Easy access to the airport and Valencia, important for us as we love Valencia. We will definitely come back again.

A real gem!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this villa. We spent our days lazing by the pool, picking fruit for our breakfast and cooking paellas in the 'paella house'. It is such a relaxing place to be. It is very clean and tidy and has everything you need for a family holiday. The pool is a great size, there are loads of games for the kids and even a game room. it is a really easy journey from Valencia airport and in to Valencia town. We can't wait to book again.

This lovely villa is situated just a short 10 minute drive from exit 337 of A3 Valencia-Madrid motorway and is located on Urbanisation Monsec in the Cumbres de Calicanto area. It is only a 20 minute drive from Valencia airport so is really conveniently located for the airport, city centre and the stunning coastline. Please note due to the semi-rural location it is not uncommon to experience animal noises such as dogs, cats, sheep, goats and chickens.

You can chill out with lazy days sunbathing in the garden, enjoy family fun in your own pool and have a delicious BBQ. When you are ready to explore, just hop in the car (or catch the train from Chiva or the metro from Torrent) to discover Valencia City. Alternatively relax on the stunning sandy beaches of El Saler, Cullera or Sagunto, or visit the sleepy villages & stunning countryside of the inland region of Valencia.

Close to the villa, the local 'Consum' supermarket is about 8 minutes drive. This is a really well stocked supermarket where you can get all your holiday provisions for self-catering. There is also a bar/ cafeteria (Café Nelsey) and small play park next to the supermarket as well as an ATM cash machine and pharmacy. A little further along this road is the Asador restaurant. There is also the El Mirador restaurant at the El Bosque Clubhouse which is open to non-golfers/ non-residents.

Godelleta village is approximately a 10 minute drive away. This is a sleepy Spanish village with some small shops, cafes, playground, bank & chemist. The larger town of Chiva is around a 20 minute drive and offers more restaurants, shops, internet cafes & the train into Valencia. You can buy cheap, locally produced wine, fruit and vegetables from the nearby co-operatives & use them to create a delicious meal at the villa where you can dine al-fresco meal on the balcony overlooking your own private pool and gardens.

In summary, this villa is in a great location for those wanting to visit Valencia city but don't want to stay in the hussle & bustle from city centre living as well as exploring the charming places of interest in the wider region of Valencia. You can be sunbathing on the stunning, sandy beaches of Malvarossa, Cabenyal-Arena & El Saler or discovering the inland Valencian villages within a short drive from the villa. It is also a great base for events at the Ricardo Tormo GP Moto circuit (Cheste), & El Bosque Golf Club (Chiva).

Activities include: Valencia city sightseeing, Bioparc zoo, Aquarium at the City of Science and Arts, Bonaire retail outlet, sandy beaches, El Saler natural park, walking, golf, GP Moto, wine tours, cycling plus much more.
