Overview
Villa -
4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Santa Pola, Costa Blanca, Province of Alicante, Valencian Country
This gorgeous, ECO villa is situated on a private road close to the village of Valverde, an easy, twenty minute drive south by car or taxi from Alicante airport and only ten minutes from the nearest beach at the seaside town of Santa Pola - the minute we walked through the villa gates, we fell in love with the sense of peace and spaciousness of both the house and the garden and everyone who has visited it, has felt the same way.

One of the things that attracted us to this part of the Costa Blanca is that visitors to the area are mainly Spanish - more paella than fish and chips and the coast offers miles of beautiful, sandy beaches, yet both Elche and Alicante are close enough for an evening in the city.

The villa has been renovated over the last fourteen years to provide a very high standard of accomodation and is just as perfect for...

Interaction with guests
Before you go, we will send you a very detailed briefing document about the villa, how to use it and the surrounding neighbourhood and then we send you the keys early in the week before you leave and set up a phone conversation to brief you about the villa and what you can expect a couple of days before you go.
We have the villa prepared to a very high standard but, once you are there, we leave you alone to enjoy yourselves. However, our Property Managers are just a phone call away if you find yourselves in difficulties and need help.
We love to offer you ideas about where to shop, where to go out to and where to eat from our long experience in the neighbourhood.

This is my 3rd time to this beautiful villa, I absolutely love it and so does my family. It's truly like home from home and very well catered for. I've became friends with the owners over the years which has made the villa even more special as they've always looked after us. I would highly recommend going to the villa....

We had a wonderful 2 week stay in Michael & Julia's villa. Plenty of room for 8 people. Air- con in the bedrooms was efficient. My husband & I stayed in the double room as it had the softest mattress. Very comfortable although you do get bounced around when your partner moves! The villa is equipped with everything you would...

This is the perfect place for a relaxing break. Located just 15 mins from the airport it makes the journey incredibly quick and easy. The villa is situated conveniently between Elche (a historical town, great for a visit to the shops) and Santa Pola (for a beach fix). Both really close. The villa and grounds itself have everything you could...

About the neighbourhood
Santa Pola is a small fishing and holiday town that lies just twenty kilometres south of Alicante and is very easily reachable either by car on the National highway N-332 or by air when landing at the El Altet Airport just 15 kilometres away. It is more paella than fish and chips with a mainly spanish population that grows in size in the summer with many visitors from Madrid.<BR> <BR>Santa Pola quickly takes you back to Roman times. It was here where the Portus Illicitanus, the Roman ruins, were found. The Roman House of the Palmeral which was built during the Low Imperial and the Roman factory for pickling and salting fish from the 4th century BC are also clear signs of this era.<BR><BR>It was the most prosperous fishing village on the Costa Blanca and still lands... more
