The Villa is located in the residential area of Bixquert, which is very close to Xativa, an historic Spanish town with its own landmark castle dating back to the 15th century. Xativa is an ideal holiday location in its own right but is also well situated for access to Valencia city, inland nature reserves and areas of natural beauty, and the beaches around Gandia (all are around 30-40 minutes by car). Xativa offers the ideal blend of authentic historic Spain and modern shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants. Major fiestas in the area are the 'Fallas' in March and the Xativa Fair in mid August.

Spacious villa in tranquil area

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Xativa for a combined holiday and family wedding was all the better for selecting Casa Blanca. We were greeted by the owners friendly rep who showed us around the property.This is a spacious, well equipped villa with lots of garden space, with a great pool and a patio garden area at the eastern end where we had breakfast in the morning sun. As keen walkers, we sometimes walked to town having found a concreted shortcut footpath opposite the turnoff from the main road, and really enjoyed strolling around the town, with its castle, shops and many cafe's. A really enjoyable holiday.

Nick And Tina,

London.

Repos, Soleil, bonheur

  • 5 of 5

3 semaines de bonheur et de repos en famille. La villa Casa Blanca est parfaite.Un réel plus pour les 3 salles de bains, la grande chambre parentale et l'air conditionné. Nous avons passé nos journées dehors et à l'ombre grâce aux nombreuses terrasses extérieures . La grande allée de l'entrée a été un excellent terrain de pétanque ! Avec nos 3 ados nous avons profité tous les jours de la grande piscine bien chaude du matin jusqu'à la nuit ! Nous avons visité Xàtiva et son splendide château. Nous avons fait de grandes randonnées aux paysages magnifiques. Nous avons profité de la belle plage de Gandia et apprécié la tranquillité de la plage d'Oliva. Un grand merci à Nigel et à Annette sur place pour leur gentillesse et leur disponibilité : tous problèmes trouvent sa solution grâce à leur diligence.

Owner's Response: Thanks Magali for your kind review. Glad that you had a great holiday. We were worried when the fridge-freezer started to miss-behave but thanks to Annette for quick action in getting in a new one. Annette very much appreciated your kind gift - come back soon.

A peaceful holiday in an authentic Spanish villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have recently returned from Casa Blanca. We have not rented a holiday home previously and therefore did not know what to expect, what to bring or what to ask! Fortunately, when planning the visit, we felt reassured by Nigel (the owner) who answered our preliminary questions very promptly and honestly. Importantly, we felt that the description of the villa was accurate and fully agreed with the positive comments provided by previous visitors. On arrival in the town, we were met by an extremely helpful and informative lady (Annette) who guided us to the villa from a pre-arranged meeting point (McDonalds). This was very useful, as although the villa is nearby Xativa centre, it would be tricky to find the villa without help initially. The villa was very clean and well equipped/furnished. Every door and window has beautiful wood panelled shutters…which are charming and authentic. Although we did not need to use any heating, we also admired the wood burner as this is housed in a round/traditional Spanish fireplace. The pool was immaculate and has a lovely terrace surrounding it. Nigel has a large collection of DVDs (to suit every age) and an even larger collection of books. There are two supermarkets nearby and we discovered that a local garage is open on a Sunday. To celebrate a special occasion, we visited a restaurant for lunch in a nearby hotel (Mont-Sont) which is situated in a lovely setting below a Castle. Although we expected (and hoped) the local residents would be primarily Spanish speaking, we forgot to take a phrase book on holiday (or download a translation app) and discovered just before leaving that there were a few books of this type in the villa (a clear indication of the care that Nigel gives to the items that visitors might need!)

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Blanca was the perfect holiday villa for our family (2 adults and 2 children aged 12 and 10). It really felt like a home from home and provided the perfect base for exploring Xativa and the surrounding area. Annette met us in Xativa to guide us up to the villa and was extremely helpful and informative. The villa is spacious and cool inside, with a lovely patio and beautiful plants in the garden. The pool was amazing, large and clean and we swam everyday. We also enjoyed watching a couple of DVDs from the extensive film collection. Xativa is a pretty town with an interesting history - we visited the castle and museum and enjoyed both. Casa Blanca is very highly recommended and we hope to visit again one day.

Great villa in great place simple as that !

  • 5 of 5

Met and was guided to the villa by a very helpful and informative Annette who showed us around and explained the layout of the villa and how things worked etc.

Very spacious inside with a very large ensuite master bedroom and a further 3 good sized bedrooms.

kitchen area whilst a bit on the small side compared to the rest of the house has all the equipment needed for your stay.

Large pool and terrace area great for swimming and relaxing.Would recommend villa to all and being near Xativa was a bonus.Owner Nigel also very helpful throughout the booking process.
