Guestbook comments from the owner

I would like to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in Oliva. Your house is fantastic and was perfect for our family. Our teenage son loved having his own space in the atrium. We loved having a bottle of wine on the terrace.

I would like to say a special thank you for the supplies in the house: bread, butter, milk, water etc. Arriving at that time we would have

struggled to get to the shops.

The neighbours, although spoke no English and us no Spanish, were great. I think they were just curious and the man next door took great

enjoyment in directing us into the garage any time he was out sitting in the street.

The Moors and Christians fiesta was an experience. Four days of partying, bands and fireworks. We had rented a car and explored some

of the area which is lovely both north and south of Oliva. We would definately like to go back to the area.

The house sits at the top of one of Oliva's oldest streets, directly behind the medieval San Roc Church. The roof terrace has great views of the town below and the orange groves stretching towards the sea and the mountains. The house was completely renovated in 2007, but kept its traditional Valencian styling. Tiles typical of the region decorate the stairways and the kitchen. The stairways are unsuitable for child gate guards, so it's unwise to leave small children unattended. The house is built around an internal courtyard that in the old days would have been left open to the elements. After the refurbishment it is now a modern, glass-covered atrium with full ventilation making it a great place to sit and read, to play table tennis, or for an evening cocktail if the mood takes you! The kitchen and dining room are light and airy and fully equipped. Fans around the house keep you cool in the summer and electric radiators warm the house in winter. There is also a good-sized garage.

Lovely town house set in the narrow winding streets of the historical old town. House was well maintained a real home from home. Beautifully decorated with some lovely traditional touches. Fantastic views from the roof terrace with a most welcome breeze. Parking can be a problem but this house is one of the few with a garage!.manager met us on the edge of town and took us to the house. We had asked in advance for some shopping as we were arriving on a Sunday, so the fridge was well stocked. Plenty of local bars and restaurants within walking distance El Pelut being our favourite. There is a British bar nearby Amigos good cheap food and a warm welcome. Bar Baza also deserves a mention especially for the Tapas night on a Friday. The beach is a couple of minutes drive away and is stunning miles of golden sand and shallow water ideal for children. No high rise at the back just a few bars and restaurants. Can't wait to return!

We had a lovely stay in this property which was a home from home experience, the only downside was that it could be warm and the fans didn't always take the edge off this.

Lynette was great and arranged both high chair, cot and bedding at no additional charge. With an 18mth child, there were a few challenges, however we managed to overcome all and it was lovely having such a large house that he could enjoy himself without that "contained" feeling.

The area is lovely, set in the historic village with welcoming locals and the expanse of beach just a 5-10 min drive. Driving / parking to the accom probably not for the feint hearted as very narrow.

Ensure you read the folder at the house with recommendations of restaurants / things to do - invaluable.

Holiday review July/Aug 2010

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Oliva. The house is in an ideal location, close to San Roc square where we enjoyed relaxing evenings in the local bars whilst our 9 year old son played football with the local boys. We are really pleased we chose to visit Oliva, the local people are very friendly, although it helps to speak a little spanish, and the town itself has everything you need for a real spanish experience. No noisy tourists!

Our 17 year old daughter and friend found it very enjoyable and Oliva is a safe place for teenagers to have enough freedom to feel independent.

The local beaches are beautiful and even at the height of the season - uncrowded. The local sports centre has a great outdoor pool which only cost 14 euros for 5 of us for the whole day.

The house is beautiful, spacious, very clean and well-equipped. We found the roof terrace useful at night to enjoy a relaxing drink, snack and chat - watching the lights of Oliva go out before we retired to bed very late!

We visited at the hottest time of the year and found the house extremely hot, even the fans provided very little relief - additional fans or air-conditioning would be very useful at this time of year.

All in all we had a fantastic time, lovely house, nice neighbourhood and we would definetly return.

Très bon séjour dans cette belle maison

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cette magnifique maison.Elle est très bien équipée,la literie est très bien ,les pièces sont spacieuses et elle est bien entretenue ,elle correspond en tout point à l'annonce .Le garage est un plus il permet de rentrer un break .Oliva une ville pleine de charme,la maison est située dans le vieux Oliva ,les rues sont étroites,les maisons sont typiques bref l'immersion est totale!!La plage est à 10 minutes en voiture,il y a plein de commerce aux alentours,Lynette a été de très bon conseil et toujours à notre écoute,elle nous a fourni un guide explicatif de la ville et dans la maison il y a même un porte document rempli d'informations sur les restaurants de la ville,les bars et les activités à faire aux alentours.

Le seul point "négatif" de cette maison c'est qu'il y fait très chaud mais cela ne nous a pas empêché d'y passer de très belles vacances!!

Je remercie Andréa pour son accueil et Lynette pour son écoute et sa réactivité,je recommanderais cette location à un ami.

Oliva is at Valencia’s southern tip in the “Oranges & Lemons Region” where the Costa Del Azahar meets the Costa Blanca. It is a traditional Spanish market town steeped in history. Many fiestas, including July’s famous Moors & Christians, parade along the narrow, cobbled streets of the old town and past the square of the medieval San Roc Church that leads directly to the house. The square has two welcoming bars to choose from, with local bakeries, patisseries, cafes and a lively restaurant, a short walk away. Oliva has 10kms of fine, golden sand beaches flying European Blue Flags for their quality and range of facilities, including volleyball, windsurfing hires, beach bars, cafes, restaurants and children’s play areas. Beaches are 5 minutes away by car. Ten minutes further is Oliva Nova Golf Club, designed by Seve Ballesteros. It is a par 72 course of 6,350m and 15 of its 18 holes have water hazards. The club has two tennis and paddle courts. All facilities are bookable by non-members.
