About Julie Hewitt
Hi, my name is Julie and I live in Cheshire with my husband Tom and our Westie Abbey. We have 2 grown up children who have now flown the nest. Over the last 5 years we have had many happy holidays at the house in Spain with family and friends. Still after all this time both ourselves and our children and their partners love to spend time at the house and enjoy the area its facilities and climate.
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, a shopping mall and 2 golf courses. Our historical village of Finestrat is situated in the hills. It has all the typical Spanish streets which wind there 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. 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.

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.
IMMACULATE--PERFECT FOR A RELAXING STAY. FRESH & NEW LOOKING THROUGHOUT.
The cleanest place we have stayed in. The towels, linens furniture etc all new looking and great quality, everything was immaculate. Kitchen looked very well equipped but we always ate out so never used anything. A very peaceful location, you do need a car to get about but lovely if you want to stay in & sit around in the big, beautifully planted garden & pool, plenty of loungers, chairs, large family table, BBQ. They had a community pool around the corner but we had no need to use the communal pool as was perfect to sit & relax in the garden.
A lovely quiet complex. We walked for 30+ mins most mornings and not much to walk to (just saw the golf course) but all good paved paths, a new complex is being build over the other side, we could see them building on our walks but you can not see or hear from the house, the golf course is close so guess they have a club house etc but we never went in to look. Finestrat - La Casa beach a lovely sand cove was with in a 10 minutes drive, we went to Lavante to see family was about a 20 mins to drive. A perfect stay & would stay again. The owner Julie was so good and her friendly neighbors Michael & wife who showed us around & gave us the keys were so nice, even invited us in for a drink, so lovely & friendly. Many thanks to them & Julie for a perfect stay.
Thank you for your review. I am delighted that you have had a lovely holiday and enjoyed your stay at the house.
really nice property
This property has everything and more that one needs for a holiday. Everything from kitchen rolls to toilet rolls!!! There is very little one needs to buy other than food and you can get everything from the very busy and very large Carrefour hypermarket ( our landmark ) about 5 minutes away. The pool is great and there are plenty of seats/loungers. ( Big apologies Julie for the accident with the sunlounger, very embarrassing for my husband !! ) We loved the garden areas with beautiful flowers, cheery planters with pretty sparkly stones. There is a nice balcony to the front of the property where it's nice to sit in the early morning and late evening watching the lights of Alicante in the distance. I think Julie's property is most probably one of the nicest ones on the development. Air conditioning was very welcome and we found it especially good in the twin bedroom and the lounge. Julie supplied loads of reading material and free Wi-Fi which is a bonus.
Amazing house pictures don't do it justice
We were met on arrival by Michael who showed us around the house which was stunning and very spacious for the six of us. The pool and garden area is lovely with plenty of seating and loungers also plenty of room to sit in the shade if you prefer. The pool is a really good size and certainly big enough for my three children who enjoyed many hours in there. There is much to do in the surrounded areas but would say you need a car to get around. Would really recommend this house, thank you Julie for sharing your beautiful home.
Mrs Emma Head
We had a really lovely holiday in Julie's superb home; it really was a home from home. My children both loved the pool and the free wifi whilst myself and the husband admired the fantastic views and basked in the glorious sunshine. We hired a car and explored so many different places; the location of the house allowed easy access to the main roads and airport. I thoroughly recommend this holiday home!
Thank you Emma it's lovely to hear how much you enjoyed the house. You and your family would be very welcome to stay again in the future.
The nearest beach, Cala Finestrat, is just a 5 minute drive away. It has numerous bars/restaurants surrounding its beautiful bay.

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.

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.
