About the property

2 Bedrooms (1 double/1 twin), 1 bathroom, private pool, Air Con - sleeps 4

Our private, well maintained, traditional style villa has its own secluded 8x4m pool and terraces which are exclusively for your use.

The villa sits on a landscaped 900 m² plot overlooking orange groves and mountains. It has a single level living area of 120 m², comprising a main living room (FreeView TV and 300 DVDs), separate dining area (seats 6) which connects to a well equipped kitchen. A large glazed and a smaller open naya overlook the pool, terrace and mountain scenery creating a very light and sunny room equipped with a sofa, wicker dining furniture and an indoor BBQ. Both bedrooms are well proportioned and access a single bathroom. Modern AC/Heating in lounge and bedrooms.

Outside, the pool and terraced areas are fully equipped with loungers, parasols and patio furniture and provide the perfect area for all day sunbathing. More patio furniture is available at the rear of the villa where you can sit quietly in the shade beneath our beautiful pergola, ideal for al-fresco dining and BBQs!

Orba Village: The valley of Orba, from which the village takes its name, has a mild climate, excellent water and is surrounded by orange groves, lemon trees, almonds and of course, olives. The village sits at the head of the valley surrounded by mountains with the Mediterranean sea at the valley foot. The village has all the facilities you are likely to need, 24 h cash points, 24/7 access to a medical centre, large supermarket, bars and restaurants.

An excellent choice of restaurants can be found in Orba and the surrounding villages, with the nearest bar/restaurant being a short stroll from the villa.

Orba has a small weekly market on Wednesday.

Places to Visit: The Costa Blanca is renowned for its white sandy blue flag beaches and several can be reached from the villa within 20 - 45 min drive. Denia is only a short drive away with its lovely old town, castle, harbour, fishing fleet and lots of super shops, not to mention miles of sand and pebble beaches. Boat trips along the coast are available as are ferries to the Balearic Islands. Javea has a famous stretch of beach called the Arenal lined with cafés, restaurants and shops and golden sands. Sandy beaches stretch from Oliva to Gandia and are very quiet and uncommercialised. Another landmark on the coast is the Penon d'Ifach rock which sticks out into the sea at Calpe.

A 50 min drive away are the famous theme parks of Benidorm, including Terra Mitica, Terra Natura, and Aqualandia Water Park and Wild Life Park.

Historic Guadalest and the famous water pools and waterfalls are just 40 min away.

If you are into caves, superb examples exist nearby at Benidoleig and Val De Ebo (Cova Del Rull)

Activities: Golf: There are several Golf Courses in the area most within 15 to 50 minutes drive. Benissa 9 hole course 15 min drive. Denia 18 hole course 25 mins drive. Altea 18 hole course 30 mins drive. Oliva Nova 18 hole course 50 min drive.

Walking/Climbing: Overlooking Denia and Javea is El Montgo mountain which becomes a familiar landmark during your stay and it is possible to walk to the top if you are feeling energetic. There is also the famous mountain spring and walks on the Sierra Bernia 20 min away. The area is very mountainous and offers both easy and very challenging walking/climbing experiences.

Cycling: The area offers road cyclists and mountain bikers a breathtaking mix of peaceful inland countryside and invigorating coastal routes, suitable for anyone, from the die-hard cycling junkie to the normally car-bound.

Peaceful location close to all amenties

  • 5 of 5

Colin prepares you fully for your stay at the Villa with excellent communication before you leave and all necessary instructions for any eventuality are well presented in the villa. We got off to a very welcoming start with some food and beer essentials left in the fridge for our arrival - a very nice touch.

The villa is in a very peaceful location yet only 2 mins from a supermarket and the restaurants in Orba - which also hosts banks/cash machines. You are also only 15 mins drive from a large hypermarket on the outskirts of Ondara.

We tried a few restaurants outside the village but you cant beat the value of those in the village - one restaurant serves a three course meal with a bottle of wine (between 2) for €10 per head during the week. Very drinkable wine and good food!

We were extremely relaxed after our two weeks in the villa and I wish we were back there now! I believe Colin is renovating the villa this winter which will make a great villa even better.

An idillic setting and fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Following a long drive from Portsmouth through France and Spain, arriving at Casa Jean Mary was wonderful. We met Gwen as we arrived, who had kindly stocked the fridge with some essentials - which included a very welcome cold bottle of San Migel! The villa is a very well equipped villa, definitely a home from home with everything you would need - including very comfy beds! The pool and gardens were beautiful and the views spectacular! We were fortunate to be at the villa during fiesta time in Orba which was a great experience!

It has been a pleasure to organise our holiday with the owner Colin, who was very easy to communicate with whilst booking the holiday and who has provided very clear instructions and suggestions of things to do once at the villa. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to others and hope to return there one day.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just come back from a wonderful holiday at Casa Jean Mary. The accommodation is excellent, well fitted out with good air con (which we needed at night). The photos don't do the views justice. If you want a peaceful, get away from the crowds holiday this is the venue for you. However, you are still in easy reach of the beaches, fantastic rural scenery and villages, with Vallencia & Alicante (and Benidorm if you really want to get the nightlife experience) not far away. We hope to return next year.

We were looking for a beautiful villa in a quiet location with great views. So when we arrived late afternoon in hazy sunshine, we drove off the busy motorway onto a small quiet road towards Orba & found ourselves surrounded by Orange groves & the scent of Orange blossom filling the car. Within 10 minutes we were taking in the view from the front of the villa over the valley & it was absolutely breathtaking! The villa itself is immaculately maintained. There is nothing you could possibly need that Colin has not already provided or can provide for you. It is very much a home from home & has a very welcoming, cosy character that we loved. The gardens that wrap around the house have fruit trees, shrubs & cacti & are just perfect for sitting in having breakfast or reading a book. The pool area is fabulous! Lounging with a Long cold drink topped with fresh lemon picked just a moment before in the garden all with those spectacular views! Perfect! The property itself is around a 10 minute casual stroll from town with the nearest cafe/bar about 7 mins walk away. Our bedding & towels were taken care of weekly by the lovely Gwen who lives close by & was brilliant for tips on the town, restaurants, shops etc. We could not fault our 4 weeks stay here & were so sorry to leave. The property was perfect for us. Colin's attention to detail in & around his home clearly makes this villa worth a 5 star rating. You will find communication with him excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to anyone.

Villa très agreable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour durant 3 semaines dans cette villa.

La villa est idéale pour les personnes qui souhaitent de la tranquillité et du confort et le village d'Orba à 5mn dispose de toutes les commodités nécessaires pour ne manquer de rien.

Villa est très bien équipée, rien ne manque et elle est gérée par des personnes compétentes et sérieuses.

Nous avons bien profité de la magnifique piscine et apprécié la climatisation !

Nous espérons revenir ….

Our villa, Casa Jean Mary, is just a 10 min walk from the local village of Orba yet occupies a very quiet location offering unrivalled views over the beautiful Orba Valley across extensive orange groves & scenic mountains. Orba is a small, typical Spanish country village with around 1600 inhabitants. The village & area still retains its local Spanish culture with many Fiestas during the year, featuring a wide variety of events such as street dancing, fireworks, bull running and parades. The costal towns & beaches of Javea, Denia, Moraira & Calpe as well as many award winning golf courses are within a 20 to 30 min drive. Benidorm, with it’s many attractions & theme parks is just 40 min away whilst the mountains around Orba are ideal for walking, cycling, paragliding and scenic drives. A large shopping mall with a cinema and classy shops and cafes is a 10 min drive away. Casa Jean Mary is perfect for either a relaxing or more active holiday, any time of the year.

Golf: Club de Golf Oliva Nova

Dist: 12.6 km

Oliva Nova Golf, 18 hole golf course right beside the beach. It is a par 72 links course of 6350 m with a slope of 120 the main characteristic of which is that 15 or the 18 holes has a water obstacle!

Club De Golf La Sella

Ctra. La Xara-Jesús Pobre

Dist: 12 Km

Located on the slopes of a mountain, the course is not particularly tiring. It lies next to Montgó natural park, and is surrounded by Mediterranean woodland and hills. Pine trees, orange trees, olives and almonds add colour to the course. 18 holes and a par of 72. It is varied and thought provoking, and moderate in length.

The design of the courses means it is suitable for players of all levels, with the difficulty apparent at the tees.

Club de Golf Ifach

Carretera de Moraira-Calpe.

Club de Golf de Jávea
