About Julie Hewitt
Hi, my name is Julie and I live in Cheshire with my husband Tom. We have two grown up children who have enjoyed spending many happy holidays at the house. They both now have children of their own and every year we all spend 2 weeks in the summer together. The house is perfect for families and well catered for with everything you might need. We also spend time on our own to just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Julie Hewitt purchased this House in 2007
Why Julie Hewitt chose Finestrat
After many years of visiting family in the area we decided we would also like to make a home there. There is so much on offer on the doorstep. The house is situated at the foot of the mountains in a quiet area with fabulous views over the sea. Just 3 minutes away by car there are well known supermarkets, and a shopping mal. Directly opposite is the new golf course Puig Campana plus two more courses just 4 minutes away by car. The brand new club house opposite is just a 10 minute walk away, ideal if you don't want to drive. Here you can enjoy a reasonably priced meal while taking in the stunning views. Our historical village of Finestrat is situated in the hills. It has all the typical Spanish streets which wind their way up to a little church where the views are spectacular. Also at the top is an amphitheatre where concerts are regularly hosted. Within easy drive time is Villa Joiosa, Albir and Altea with their picturesque seafronts, bars and restaurants. For families with children there is the famous theme park, Terra Mitika plus Terra Natura and Aqua Natura. The area offers something for everyone.
What makes this House unique
The house benefits from having its own pool, which is rather nice in the height of the summer. There are sunbeds and parasols for those who wish to laze in the sun. Situated at the bottom of the garden is a barbecue, a fully covered terrace and dining table ready to enjoy out door living. The kitchen has all the appliances you would need including a dishwasher. Inside the house on the ground floor is one of the bedrooms and shower room overlooking the garden and pool. The spacious lounge/dining room is well appointed with a 42" wall mounted plasma TV and a DVD & music system. On the first floor is an outside terrace with seating and a table to enjoy the amazing sea views along the coast all the way to Alicante. The two other larger bedrooms and bathroom are on this floor.

Another wonderful stay!!!
This was our second year in a row staying at Julie’s and it was just as brilliant as last time. The house is wonderful, really well equipped and beautifully furnished with amazing outdoor space around the pool and a lovely balcony adjoining the master bedroom. We will definitely be returning again in the future.
Thank you. Wonderful to hear you have enjoyed your stay.
Brilliant property everything we needed was provided
Everything we hoped it would be
Beautiful townhouse with an amazing pool and great location.
Had a fabulous week at Julie's townhouse. The property was immaculate and really well equipped. We loved the pool especially and the sea views from the front of the property. The location was really great for us - we were really close to the shops and theme parks and only a short drive to lovely beaches at Villa Joyosa and Finestrat. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay here again in the future.
You would be very welcome!
Beautiful villa, fabulous outdoor space
We had a great 9 nights at Julie’s beautiful villa! It was really well equipped and the outdoor space was amazing. We spent loads of time in the great pool, sunbathing and dining on the covered patio. The bbq was really handy.
We traveled as a couple and a family of 4. My husband and I had the small downstairs bedroom which is pretty compact but perfectly fine. The family took the upstairs 2 bedrooms which are bigger and enjoyed having access to the balcony.
The villa is really well air conditioned and is extremely well equipped.
The villa is in an urbanisation with no shops so you really need a car. There is a giant Carrefour Just 5 mins drive away.
We enjoyed going into Cala Finestrat in the evenings. It is also really close to Terra Mítica, Terra Natura and Aqua Natura. We had great days out to all 3 parks.
We would love to return. Thank you Julie for sharing your lovely home with us!
Thank you Claire. Lovely to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. Your welcome anytime in the future.
Beautiful property inside & out. Exceptionally clean with wonderful outside spaces & pool.
The property was absolutely perfect. It was exceptionally clean & had everything you would have to hand at home. Julie was so incredibly helpful & provided lots of info about the area, transport etc. Michael & Carol who met us & showed us around on our arrival were lovely & so very accommodating.
The pool & outdoor areas were fantastic. With 2 young children the pool was a real bonus. The BBQ & seating areas were also wonderful. On several days we never went out preferring to spend time in the wonderful garden & pool.
Inside is very spacious & as mentioned before, very clean & with everything you could need. Tv, satellite channels, broadband, washing machine & air con. The kitchen was also great with dishwasher, microwave & coffee machine as well as plenty of crockery glasses etc.
There are 2 bathrooms which was great & plenty of freshly laundered towels available.
Overall, the owners provide a beautiful property with all the amenities & some! They really have thought of everything.
The property is located in a very quiet area, only one downside (nothing to do with property or owners) was the rather annoying dogs in a neighbouring property. At times they could bark for hours! But this was only a minor irritation & in no way affected our stay.
Overall, we were delighted with our stay & would definitely return if in that area again. I would also highly recommend the property to anyone looking for a beautiful property with all the amenities you could possibly need for a great family holiday.
Thank you for your review. I'm delighted to hear you have had a wonderful holiday. You will be very welcome anytime in the future.
Excellent property and in a peaceful location
First time booking a villa and not disappointed. Very well equipped accommodation. Lovely pool and furniture in the garden area with a large barbeque. Plenty of space in the villa and all modern conveniences.
You will need a car(s) as there is no local bars or restaurants unless you rely on taxis, but they only take 4 passengers. We ended up hiring one to get around. Only 15 minutes by car to central Benidorm.
All in all a great property to rent, great value and some great views.
Lovely to hear you have enjoyed your stay!
I always recommend renting a car as the villa is in a quiet location but minutes away from beaches, restaurants, bars and shops.
The nearest beach, Cala Finestrat, is just a 5 minute drive away. It has numerous bars/restaurants surrounding its beautiful bay.
A little further, 15 minutes, is Villa Joiosa with its stunning beach and promenade which is ideal for a good stroll. The beach has children play areas and toilet facilities.
There are plenty of seaside restaurants and bars to enjoy the spectacular views.
Flights to Alicante are readily available from most UK airports. The house is then a 40 minute drive along the AP7. Full driving instructions will be given if requested.
Alicante airport has many car hire agents available. A hire car is recommended as this gives the easiest way to reach all local attractions, although local buses and taxis provide an alternative.
On arrival at the house you will be greeted by our friendly representative who will explain everything necessary.
The popular theme parks, Terra Mitica, Terra Natura and Aqua Natura are a 4 minute drive away from the house. As are the 2 Jack Nicklaus golf courses at Villaitana.
Just 3 minutes away are various well known supermarkets plus La Marina an indoor shopping mall with lots of designer shops under one roof.
Benidorm is 10 minutes away by car with plenty of fun on offer for the young and young at heart.
A little further north is Albir and Altea with their picturesque seafronts, bars and restauran
