really great holiday
The villa is nearly perfectly located, at the same time close to everything (including the beach) and quiet, which may be a kind of miracle in this area.
As someone else aid previously, the pool is much bigger than it seems, the whole family (5 persons) was using it easily. Everything is clean and easy to use thanks to little notes everywhere, the beds are really good.
We really enjoyed the stay, and we'll probably go back there.
An absolute gem!
We returned to the villa for a short break during a Spanish heat wave and absolutely loved the pool. It was fabulous to sit in the sun until we overheated and then cool down in an immaculate, well maintained pool. We even enjoyed a dip at 1pm. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was essential.
We noticed a number of positive changes since our previous visit. There is now only one palm tree, which provides additional space on the terrace (and keeps the pool cleaner). The wooden table and chairs on the patio comfortably seats 8 people and the new sun room at the front would be ideal if the weather was inclement or you wanted space to read or chill.
Although there are a number of good restaurants all within a walk, we chose to eat and cook at the villa and found a really well equipped kitchen with plenty of crockery, glasses and kitchen utensils – there was even a lemon zester which was great bearing in mind there was a wonderful lemon tree in the garden.
We did not want for anything and will definitely return.
We really enjoyed our stay at this house, really well located, as it was close to everything but far enough to feel yourself in a calm surounding.
Because of the heat it was a regret that some of the aircondition units didn`t function in the beginning but thanks to the great help on site this was fixed after the first week. Thanks to you we have had a great holliday and we would like to thank you for that !
Oliva September 2009
Unfortunately we arrived in Oliva just prior to the beginning of the worst September weather in 138 years!... and a small earthquake to boot! However after the storms cleared and the sun decided to make a return, we enjoyed the stay at Carrer del Fartet, and it sufficed as a good base for a late summer break
The villa is as described very close to the beach and a handful of restaurants, but some were closed mainly I think due to the weather.
The pool is fantastic! and the kids loved it. The sun shines on the pool in the afternoon at that time of year, so it's good to visit the beach am, have a lazy lunch maybe at Kiko and then recline by the pool pm!
The only complaint was not with the villa but with the river adjacent. During torrential rain, there were outlet pipes pumping into the stream constantly, which can upset the peace, but as I say, this is moan unconnected to the villa itself.
For anyone wanting to visit this region of Spain, I would definately recommend the villa.
As a tip, other than Oliva with it's more basic Spanish charm, I would also suggest definately visiting Gandia Playa a short drive north, for the superb 'manicured' beaches if that's of interest
Also Forna slightly inland is a beautiful small village nestled beneath a medieval castle. Unfortunately the few restaurants there seemed to be closed when we drove there. But from memory I think in the Summer it comes alive!
Just back - June 09
No 9 is ideally located in the middle of Oliva's Ptaja Blanca, close to shops, restaurants and beach but in a quiet cul de sac. Position alone recommends it. The house is well equipped and the pool good. If I had to carp it would be about condition. Creaky doors and some which do not open are unexpected in a rental at this sort of price level. It could do with an update in decoration, terrace tiling, and shading too. The air conditioning is a must in the climate but the machines are creaky. Having said all of which, Nigel, Liam, Zosia and the pool cleaning brigade were very friendly, helpful and efficient - even when the washing machine let us down.
We have noted your comments and indeed we are in the process of attending to some of the decor issues. The villa will be completly refreshed at the end of this season. Your feedback is always welcome. We aim to provide a comfortable holiday residence suitable for a beach location that families can use without fear of breaking a "ming vase" and so to that extent the furnishings and decor will remain clean, comfortable but functional rather than luxurious. A new washing machine has been installed.
Thanks for your custom and your feedback.
Overall a lovely villa!
7 of us stayed in the villa in August 2008. It is very spacious and clean, and well equipped! The pool is alot bigger than it looks in the photos, the kids were never out of it!
It is located 5 minute walk to beach and there are a few bars and restaurants 5/10 min walk. We eat in La Soqueta on the last night, but didnt take the kids! Its quite expensive but lovely food!
The beaches here are so empty, even in August, so it is a lovely peaceful holiday, we hardly heard any english people!
It is pleasing to see that our villa is enjoyed. Oliva is a very Spanish town and for this reason we love it. Not having many english can have its advantages and the spanish tend to go out to eat late. Restaurants often get busy arround 10pm. The beaches are beautiful at any time of the year and can be busy in August but otherwise there is plenty of room to walk, swim, play volley ball or just laze.
On the North Costa Blanca coast at the Southern most point of the Valencia region ( Costa Azahar) The orange blossom coast with beautiful citrus orchards and Almond trees.
