Heated Pool. Most peaceful & tranquil house with beautiful mountain country vie
- english, spanish
Hi, I'm Tim. I'm married with a small 10 month old daughter. Love the outdoors and outdoor sports, nature, wildlife and beautiful scenery much aided with a lovely glass of Rioja whilst watching the sun set. A big reason why we bought this farm house - it absolutely ticks all these boxes. Living in London can be hectic so this is the most perfect place to get away for truly relaxing break.
Tim purchased this House in 2016
Why Tim chose Ricote
The pool has to be seen and the views whilst drinking a cold beer, wine or lemonade make this the most scenic and relaxing villa you could possibly imagine.
What makes this House unique
The peace and quiet, remote location but only one hour fifteen minutes from Alicante airport, wonderful scenery and a truly Spanish farm house experience.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Quiet getaway, with views and private pool
The whole process was very smooth. Tim was very helpful with any queries.
The views are amazing and it is in such a peaceful area. The pool and terrace are secluded and the house is spacious.
We would highly recommend and will probably be visiting again soon.
Relaxing, remote, amazing view, great pool!
My friends and I had an excellent time at Tim's villa. The view from the patio is amazing, we spent pretty much all of our time out there, BBQing and swimming in the heated pool. We didn't have any kids with us, but there were plenty of toys around, and as adults we still enjoyed the pool floaties and the great selection of board games! The place had everything we needed for a few days of relaxation, even a juicer! There was plenty of space for a large group (there were 12 of us), and it was spectacular to be so remote, yet so easily accessible. I would highly recommend!
Spain in Spring
Villa is absolutely amazing, the location is breathtaking, so peaceful, (until we turned up) brilliant views. Very spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, great storage . Was worried that April would be too cold but heated pool meant we could still spend lots of time in the pool, had to drag the kids out or they would've stayed in until midnight. Some really good games in the house so was brilliant for us all, had an amazing time. Great communication with Tim, can not wait to go back, thank you
Peace and tranquility in this lovely villa with stunning pool!
If you want to stay in a spacious, well-equipped house with stunning views and immaculate, huge pool where the only sound you hear is the local fauna, then Tim's Villa is the perfect place. We stayed for two fantastic weeks and never heard the sound of a car, except for José's, coming to clean the pool. It was truly the most peaceful place we have stayed.
Although it was over 30 degrees during the day, the house remained cool which meant sleeping at night was pleasant - unlike some other hot houses we've stayed at. We enjoyed some amazing bbq's and dinners on the huge terrace while watching stunning sunsets over the mountains beyond. But without doubt, the pool with its two jacuzzis was the star of the show.
There are some fantastic walks straight out of the property and the stroll down to the Bar Carmen, passing by wild rosemary and thyme bushes was a pleasure.
We stayed during the first 2 weeks of the World Cup and although we wouldn't normally be interested in watching TV, having English satellite channels meant we were able to celebrate a few victories!
So thanks Tim for letting us stay in your wonderful place and also for being so helpful and attentive during the booking process and while we were there. We hope we'll be back!
It's not a good villa, it's a great villa!
We visited paradise in June 2018 on the occasion of our 14th annual golf competition. 8 of us in total and during the course of our stay we counted 37 fabulous things about the villa. We have sent a copy of these to the amazing host (Timothy Patrick Spurling), who mentioned that he might even create a poster of them to hang on the wall. Here are just a sample: 1. Beautiful Pool and Jacuzzi, 2: Amazing Vista Views 3: Large BBQ 4. Lots of extra comfortable chairs for lazing around the pool 5. Extra comfortable beds 6. Lovely towels 7. Well stocked kitchen 8. Extra speedy internet connection 9. Incredible walks around the villa 10. Lots of championship standard golf course within easy drive...the list goes on. Book today, you will not be disappointed.
Five Star property, Completely relaxing and amazing location
My friends and I had a wonderful long weekend at this beautiful farm house in Ricote valley. The weather was fantastic and got up to 30 degrees and we spent 3 days relaxing, swimming, eating bbq's and drinking very tasty cold Estrella.
We did manage to get out for one walk through the mountains and also a must visit - the natural baths and spa in Archena where you can have a range of treatments or just enjoy the varied saunas, jacuzzis and outdoor pools.
The house is spacious and clean but we spent most of our time outdoors on the big sun terrace and round the pool which is west facing so you get the sun all day and lovely sun sets every night.
Would strongly recommend this house.
