Villa Ra is set on the side of a green and peaceful valley with lovely sea and hill views in the quiet, exclusive San Jaime area, 5 mins walk from the Club de Golf Ifach with its tennis courts, bars, restaurant, pool and breath-taking views and just a few minutes drive from the lovely beaches, Marina and Old Town of Moraira itself.
The very private pool (1m shallow end) is not overlooked and is particularly magical at night with pretty poolside and terrace lighting. There is an open-plan living area with a fully equipped modern open-plan kitchen, a large glazed naya (sun room) and a sitting room (with UK satellite 'free-to-air' TV or German TV). Also on the ground floor is bedroom 3 with adjacent modern shower-room. Upstairs are two further bedrooms and a stylish family bathroom. The master bedroom has a balcony with those superb views over the sea, hills and pool terrace. Outside there is a shady area with built-in barbecue and steps down to the orchard garden. A best supermarket in the area is close by and there are a few bars and restaurants within walking distance.
Resort area: Green countryside dotted with individual white-washed villas, shady pine woods, citrus groves and vine terracing make a pretty and relaxing setting away from the package tour crowds.
Moraira is an attractive resort which retains its local charm. There are 2 safe, sandy beaches with beach-bars, and numerous little rocky coves (calas) up and down the coast. The town has grown from a small fishing village into an attractive high-quality holiday resort whilst managing to hold onto much of its authenticity . . . partly due to the busy local fish market with catches brought in fresh each day by the fishing fleet . . . if you like fish you will love Moraira! There is an abundance of restaurants, bars and smart little shops which crowd around the harbour and popular marina and then meander on down the coast road.
San Jaime is on the borders of Moraira, and a little outside Town - but only a couple of minutes - and, whilst benefiting from a peaceful location, it also has the best Supermarket in the area.
Local attractions and activities: The beautiful 9-hole Moraira golf-course with poolside bar/restaurant and magical views down to the sea is open to non-members and is within walking distance of the villa, with the popular 18-hole course at Jesus Pobre and the 9-hole course at Javea about 15 minutes away by car. Nearby are tennis courts, squash, water sports, boat hire and trips, horse-riding and go-kart racing. A little further away are the coastal resorts of Javea (15-20 mins. by car) with its beautiful sandy horse-shoe bay bordered by beach bars and restaurants, Denia with its long, sandy beach and pretty Calpe in the other direction. The local wine-making area of the Jalon valley, surrounded by mountains is also about 20 mins. drive away, and from here you can venture further into the spectacular mountain scenery - perfect for those who enjoy walking, cycling or climbing. Moraira is only 45 minutes drive from the livelier Benidorm which is close to Terra Mitica (a Disney style theme park) and Aqualandia Water Park
Suitability: Pets will be considered on an individual basis - but we'll do our best to help.
Steps from street level to pool terrace may make it unsuitable for those with impaired mobility.
We are happy to accept CONSIDERATE smokers and request that you do so only when outside.
The villa has hot or cold a/c in the 3 bedrooms and central heating radiators to all main areas, so is warm and comfortable in Winter and cool in summer, and the glazed naya makes the most of the winter sun. Unlike some seaside towns, most of Moraira and nearby Javea's bars and restaurants remain open all year round to welcome the visitors who enjoy the temperate climate of the Costa Blanca. Winter in this area is generally sunny and pleasant. There are a few days where the rain falls, helping to keep the countryside green and fertile, but there are also days where, despite the calendar, you may well be able to get those shorts out and even go for a swim.
The villa now has free Wi-Fi Internet connection for guests wishing to use their laptops or tablets.
