About Terry and Tina Bacon
Hi, we are Tina and Terry Bacon. We purchased our villa in 2003 after looking around the area. We fell in love with the unspoilt scenery and the traditional Spanish way of life in Hondon de las Frailes but due to family ties we were unable to move out there. Feeling it was such a great, peaceful location and with places to explore we decided to try renting to holidaymakers. This has been very successful and satisfying knowing we can contribute to happy holidays in the sun for other people. We listen to our clients and have made improvements over the years for their increased comfort and entertainment and will continue to do so.

What makes this Villa unique
Villa Tocino is situated inland, surrounded by mountains, in an elevated position overlooking the village of Hondon de los Frailes. It is ideal for quiet relaxation but near enough for visiting the more lively Mediterranean coastal areas. Located in a tranquil setting within its own almond grove with beautiful 180 degree views of the surrounding mountains. The villa offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the coast but only 30 minutes drive from the A7 motorway and 40 minutes from Alicante Airport, or only 75 minutes from Murcia Airport, on the Costa Blanca.

A gem in the hills 14-19th May 2018
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Villa Tocino, we had a great 5 days of Spanish sun and relaxation at your property. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jean and John who were very kind and welcoming, with a knowledge of the local area (Best supermarket would be in Albertera) and a quick house tour before letting us get on with our holiday.
The villa was clean, tidy and well presented, with everything that was needed for a self catering experience. The pool was excellent and clean, with a jet clean around 11 am every day to clear the normal insect/plant matter from the pool. Perfect for a good 6+ hours of enjoyment during the good weather we fortunately had.
Hondon De Los Frailes was a 5 minute drive where you can find an Irish Pub, local convenience store and friendly locals.
Definitely recommend hiring a car to get to the location and its surroundings to get the most out of visiting this area.
We shall recommend the property to friends and family and will hopefully be back next year, for longer.
Cjeers Terry & Tina!

What a great place for a relaxing, peaceful holiday.
It had everything you need in a spotless, beautiful villa. The village was within walking distance with friendly bars and restaurants and the views when out walking are stunning. Will definitely return.

Lovely Villa just right for a relaxing holiday
The villa was extremely comfortable and had everything needed for a great holiday. The pool was a wonderful addition and used on a daily basis by all of us. It is just what is needed for a quiet, relaxing holiday, with the benefit of having places to visit not too far away for a change of scene.
Would thoroughly recommend for a family holiday.
Thank you for your kind words. We think so too.
Hondon de los Frailes is a typical agricultural village, 74 percent of its land is given over to farming, mainly of grapes, olives and almonds though it also produces other crops that grow on irrigated land. Citric fruits, vegetables and dates are some of the typical produce grown, which farmers take to markets throughout the province. In addition to agriculture, hemp products such as brooms and brushes are also produced.
The surrounding Crevillente mountains provide ideal walking for enthusiasts and casual ramblers. The area is particularly attractive for cyclists for its testing mountain passes which reward you with spectacular views.
Minimum stay 5 nights. We advise that children should be supervised at all times whilst in and around the pool. The property and the pool is maintained regularly and is cleaned before rental period.
