Overview

About the property

Villa Trencall Detached 3 bedroomed Home with Private Pool, Tranquil Setting, Short Drive to Sandy Beach and Shops.

Our beautiful home is set in an exclusive part of Javea (Xabia) in a quiet setting in the Trencall pine forest area, but close enough to drive to the beautiful Xabia town, port and beaches.

Villa Trencall is tranquil and secluded with a tropical feel and a lovely breeze in the summer months and the trees and grass surrounding the house give us ample shade to keep it cool. Lovely to lay by the pool at night, with the pool lights on and stare at the stars. Great to sit by the bar enjoying a freshly made margherita, and all you can hear is the crickets.

The house has Wi-Fi, free local telephone and is very comfortably furnished, with a cream leather suite in the lounge, and Tosca stone archways, wooden beam ceilings, and a log burning fire for the winter lets giving a cosy feeling to the whole house. The double aspect windows have mosquito blinds which allows you open the windows at night to feel the breeze coming though the house.

Cable TV is in the living room and a separate one in the dining room so you can watch different programmes.

The fully fitted kitchen has a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. It is separated from the dining room by a Tosca stone arch. The dining room has a table and chairs for 6 people, and high chair if needed. and a bespoke welsh dresser with lighting and a natural stone wall as a feature. Both the kitchen and dining room have ceiling fans. French windows from the dining room lead out onto the terrace and BBQ area, which is perfect for breakfast as it catches the morning sun.

The master bedroom is double aspect so very light and airy, and quite a self-contained area. There is a ceiling fan, mosquito blinds on the windows and large French doors, which open onto the front garden. There is a small wide screen TV with its own cable digibox separate from the rest of the house. There is a travel cot if needed.Leading off the bedroom is a dressing area with fitted wardrobe and an en suite bathroom with shower and separate bath.

The two other bedrooms each have 2 single beds, windows opening onto the front garden, fitted wardrobes, ceiling fans and mosquito blinds.

The bedrooms face each other and share a family bathroom with a corner bath, toilet and shower.

Outside there is an open air “Naya” ideal for “Al Fresco” dining, overlooking the floodlit pool, gardens and poolside bar with colonial ceiling fan, sink, mini fridge and built in seating. This is an ideal area to sit in the shade and relax with a cool drink. The well-established private garden has a pergola-covered terrace with wisteria, bougainvillea, and plumbago trailing over. There are a variety of Mediterranean plants such as hibiscus, palm trees, mimosa, oleander, jasmine, datura, fig, orange and lemon trees.

The floodlit pool is 10x5 metres with mosaic-tiled steps leading down to the shallow end and metal steps at the deep end. It faces southwest and is bathed in sun throughout the day. The BBQ area, with a pergola covered with perfumed flowers, has lighting for dining after dark. It is also perfect for breakfast as it catches the morning sun. The bar with its subtle lighting, fridge and a colonial ceiling fan makes it an ideal place to have a cool cocktail before you go out for the evening. Or just stay at home and just enjoy sitting there overlooking the pool.

Javea has been described as the jewel of the Costa Blanca. It is midway, and an hour away from the international airports of Alicante and Valencia. Javea has a picturesque town up on a hill, which is the original medieval settlement. It features a fortified church, a stone built indoor market and narrow streets with typically Spanish houses. Above, there rises the impressive Sierra of Montgo. It shelters Javea from any winter winds. The World Health Organisation describes it as having one of the “healthiest climates in Europe”. Down in the port area, there is an interesting modern church, a luxurious marina and a splendid working fishing harbour which attracts both visitors and residents when the fishing boats are landing their catches. There is a small pebble beach directly in front of some interesting bars and restaurants. The main beach lies a short way to the south of the port and is most attractive, with a wide stretch of golden sand.

There are plenty of bars and restaurants running the length of the bay and families can be assured that they will cater for all tastes and pockets. In addition, for those with nightlife in mind and for those with teenagers there are several discos open in the summer months. Javea is not a high-rise resort and only has a sprinkling of hotels. There are also excellent facilities for sport: golf, tennis, go-karting, windsurfing, scuba diving, jet skiing and horse riding. Javea has two Fiestas each year- the first in June in Javea Town and the second in September in the port. Both include colourful processions, dancing, bull running and firework displays. Local industries produce goods, which can be purchased such as basketwork, ceramics of all kinds, furniture and wine. Within a short drive from Javea there are many delightful villages worth visiting as well as the larger resorts where you can enjoy the theme parks of Terra Mittica, Aqualandia, and safari parks of Vergel and Aitana.

About Barbara and David Desborough

I live in Kent with my husband David and our two children. My husband is a photographer in London and

we spend most of our holidays each year at our home in Trencall. We have made many wonderful friends in Javea, and miss it very much when we have to return to England.

We have been going to Trencall ever since our children were babies. They still love staying with us every year at the villa, which must say something about our home in Xabia. Always something to do whatever age group, you just adapt to the ever growing , changing family.... We are now grandparents ourselves and I know our grand daughter will love spending many years there as well. Can't wait to introduce her to everything that Javea and Trencall have to offer.

Why Barbara and David Desborough chose Javea, Moraira and Denia area

Trencall was owned by a Spanish doctor who used it as a retreat from Valencia as it is so peaceful, without being remote. We fell in love with Javea and bought the villa when the kids were very small. and have continued to spend every year there. They are now in their 30's and still holiday with us, as it is their second home and they still love it. The pool is large and surrounded by lawns and trees which is lovely to lounge around. Driving from the villa into the bay of Javea it looks like a fairy town with the twinkling lights. I will never get tired of that view. Each night when we come back from the centre of Javea, with all the bright lights and bars, it's lovely to sit round the floodlit pool, having a cool drink, listening to the crickets and taking in the smell of the jasmine and dame de noche.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is in a tranquil part of Javea which allows us to get away from the hustle and bustle of London, where we both work, but it's still close enough to enjoy the nightlife of Javea. We love having a BBQ in the evenings but also spending time "people watching" on the Arenal or Port. There are some lovely bays close by, especially Tango Bay, which I call my "Shirley Valentine" escape. There are hundreds of bars and restaurants to suit all pockets and from the time the children were tiny, through to their teens, twenties and now thirties, there has always been things for them to see and do. Hence they still come away with us. Many of our friends now join us as they have all fallen in love with our home, but also Javea. It really is quite a magical place that everyone wants to come back to.

Gorgeous villa, perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Having returned from the villa 4 days ago, all I can say is wow! We already can't wait to go back, a week was not long enough. Patty was just leaving as we arrived and she spent a lot of time with us, showing us where everything was and how the alarm worked etc. The villa is the perfect place for a family holiday and has everything you could need and more. The weather was amazing, which meant we got a lot of use out of the pool and we spent most evenings sat outside having drinks. Thanks Barbara for all of the information provided prior to our visit too - very helpful. Highly recommended.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4, my husband, myself and two teenage boys and we had a lovely time staying in this villa. It's all about the outside space, the pool is just fantastic, you can actually do lengths in it!! My boys loved it and spent many hours having lots of fun in it. The garden is well established and beautifully kept, and the outside bar a real bonus. Sitting outside in the evening with all the lights on is just lovely. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with everything you would need. The best Indian I have ever had is just down the road too - 'Everest Spice' I can thoroughly recommend it! Would definitely stay here again, hope to return soon. X

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so pleased you had such a great time. We love sitting by the outside bar as you don't need to go out and then eating under the Naya overlooking the pool is super. I love gardening and we have had our gardeners for years so they really nurture it even when we aren't there and it ican be so dry in the summer months. It is great to relax on loungers reading a book and still has lots of shade dspite some of the pine trees having to be taken down but we have replanted with other trees. I agree the pool is great for doing lengths and our pool man is such a perfectionist its always spotless. So perfect for all ages but it definitely keeps youngsters occupied all day. Glad you liked the kitchen. Its so handy for the BBQ as right by it. The restaurants at each end of the road are also really handy as within walking distance and delighted that the food was so good at the Everest Spice. I will make sure we let everyone know as it used to be owned by different people. The Trencall at the other end of the road does great paellas. Really hope to hear from you in the future. Kind regards Barbara & David

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixteenth visit to Barbara and David's villa which we regard as our home from home, it is a very special place to us. The villa is always clean and tidy on arrival and is well stocked with all the essentials and more. It is a place way you can relax fully around the pool and its well presented garden. The BBQ area and the outside bar are fantastic and are well used when we stay. The grounds are all on one level so the the place is user friendly for all family types. Javea is lovey with its three distinct areas, the sandy beach of the Arenal, the boats around the Port and the little streets around the Old Town are all littered with restaurants and bars so there is something for everyone.

We fully recommend this special place to anyone, it would not take long for them to get hooked with the place. My daughter and her family are testament to that. Can't wait for the next visit to come round.

Owner's Response: Gosh is it really 16 times? I am so pleased you have such a lovely time and thank you so much for keep coming back. Patty is always delighted when it is you two as the place is always left so spotlessly clean. Thank you. Javea is a very special place to so many people and I am delighted you choose to stay with us. I think this year the garden has benefited from a reasonable amount of rain in the spring, so the blossom has been outstanding and the grass is lovely and green. Really hope to see you again next year. Kind regards Barbara & David

What a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

From first enquiry to the end of the holiday everything was fabulous. The villa was perfect, home from home. The outside space just lovely and a great place to relax. The pool was magnificent, it would have been nice if it was heated but that didn't stop the children splashing around. The villa is well equipped, although a slow cooker would have been useful.

A beautiful, beautiful place in a wonderful location. Julie and family

Owner's Response: Julie Hi, I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our home. We love it in Javea and spend many weeks with our family. The pool is chilly off season and even the sea has been cold this year but It's now heating up again and everywhere is looking great as they have had quite a bit of welcome rain so the blossom has been amazing. Thank you for looking after our villa so well It looked great when we arrived just after you. Hope to hear from you again Julie. Kind regards Barbara

We had a great time staying at the villa , the weather was starting to warm up as we spent a week at the end of march , villa had every thing we needed , we did brave going in the pool once as it was so cold because of the time of year , a hot tub would have been nice or the pool heated , Barbara gave us all the information we needed ensuring we spent less time having to figure everything out when we arrived

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. This winter has been pretty cold in Javea. More so than usual but I agree it would be super to have a heated pool but we would then have to pass on the costs to our guests as it is so expensive to heat up a pool even a few degrees. Hope to see you both again and maybe come later in the season. Kind regards Barbara

Nice villa 😊

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week 19th - 26th November 2016, good parking, nice pool, good WiFi, well equipped and comfortable. It got cold at night but the numerous radiators and log burner kept us nice and warm, even electric blankets.

Short distance to supermarkets,restaurants, Arenal and Javea.

Villa is fully alarmed with safe so secure, area lovely and peaceful, kitchen is well equipped and outside BBQ area with plenty of areas to eat outside or inside.

Barbara and her husband very helpful and always available and a comprehensive pack of information and directions sent prior to arrival.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing our villa to stay at and delighted that you had such a lovely time. The area is full of great restaurants and shops and this time of the year it isnt so busy, but everywhere is still open which is good. Not sure if you used the pool but the sea is normally still warm. Mayte and Patty said you left the villa beautifully tidy which is great as its so nice to have people staying who look after the villa. Its our second home so we try and make it as cosy as possible. It does get chilly there in November but the days are often very sunny and clear skys but at least it doesnt get down to 0 degrees which is todays temperature here in Kent ! Hope to hear from you both some time in the future. You are both always very welcome. Kind regards Barbara & David

The changeover day is Saturday and the maids need time to clean the villa between lets and therefore you need to leave by 10am and arrive after 3pm.
