In May 2012 we are sailing to the Greek islands and therefore offer to let our home to selected guests during this period. The main features of the villa are the beautiful pool and garden, which is surrounded by trees and completely private. The guest accommodation is luxurious and has nice views from the bedrooms and the lounge over the garden to the mountains. We also have our little wooded area where you can sling the hammock, relax in the shade and listen to the birds and the waterfall as it cascades into the fish pond. Situated in a cul de sac on the outskirts of town it takes only a couple of minutes to walk to the nearest restaurants, 5 minutes to the beach and two large supermarkets. Calpe town is about 5 minutes drive. There is a sauna which you are welcome to use if you feel the need - we provide separate shower and toilet facilities. Also extra towels and beach robes are available. We have a gardener, pool cleaner and recently upgraded and installed air-conditioning.
Both Bedrooms are identical with a queen size double bed.
Both Bathrooms are ensuite and are identical with shower, wc and and wash hand basin.
The kitchen is an american style, with plenty of cupboards and drawers. There is a gas hob with four burners and a microwave. There is a fridge freezer. Toaster, kettle and coffee machine.
The utility room is used by the maid. There is an additional washing machine in the second bathroom the guests to use.
The lounge has a 3 seater and a 2 seater settee, coffee table and sideboard. There is a New LED TV with satellite system (BBC, ITV, Sky, Movies, etc) Also a DVD player.
We live outside in the Summer and a great feature is the Naya where we have a shady dining area and lounging area. We also have a proper bbq with dining table and a covered bar with bottle cooler, music system etc.
Bathing towels and bath towels are provided and changed weekly along with the bed linen, etc.

Private Pool, Barbecue.
Washing Machine, Oven, Microwave, Iron, Hob/Stove, Fridge/Freezer, Fridge.

Whilst the garden and patio areas are perfect for people with mobility problems the doors inside the rooms, eg to the bedroom and the bathroom are a standard size. This may pose a problem for anyone who needs wheelchair access to all rooms.
The pool is very large for a private villa, 14m x 6m shaped in a kidney form. It does not use the traditional chlorine but instead has the latest salt system which prevents red eyes and green hair. The deep end is about 2 metres and the shallow end is about 1 metre, with a number of steps which are very convenient and great for young children to help gain confidence in the water.
Important notes on accommodation
The Villa is perfect for children, trees to climb, a nice pool a couple of swings and a basket ball net. There is lots of space for them to play ball on the lawn and generally have fun.

Villa in Calpe, Costa Blanca
About the area
The villa is only about 300 metres from the sea, the nearest beach is a little further (about 5 minutes walk). The two principle beaches in Calpe the Levante is 10 minutes walk and the Fosa near the town is about 20 minutes walk.
There are a couple of 9 hole golf courses nearby, St Jaime on the way to Moraira about 10 minutes by car and Altea about 15 minutes by car. Further afield in Benidorm 25 minutes away is a 18 hole course.
Special Interest Holidays
Calpe and the surrounding area is well known by mountaineers and rock climbers, it is also a great place for watersports. Ten minutes walk from the villa you will find the small harbour called Les Bassetes, here you can hire diving equipment, windsurfers, kayaks, hobbie cats etc.
There are also a number of places nearby where Tennis can be played, also a bowling green only 10 minutes walk from the villa.
How to get there
Alicante airport is the closest airport, about 45 minutes drive using the motorway to Altea and then the national road N332 to Calpe. It is also feasible to travel via Valencia, the journey time to and from the airport is about 90 minutes by car.
Whilst is is certainly not essential to have a car, since most amenities are within a reasonable walking distance, we recommend our guests have one for at least part of their holiday and also for the convenience of travelling to and from the airport.
Nearby, we have the towns of Moraira and Altea, both about 15 minutes by car. Inland we have Benissa about 15 minutes with Jalon and the famous Jalon valley about 20 minutes drive.
We are fortunate to have two huge supermarkets (Mercadona and Consum) within easy walking distance of the villa. Also within a very short walk you will find a number of places to go including an Indian Restaurant, a Chinese Restaurant and a German run Snack bar, also a typical Spanish and Italian restaurant
A short drive (less than 5 minutes) is an Aldi and also a Lidl store.

"Our stay in Spain"
This was the first time that we had booked this type of holiday before so we felt quite apprehensive on booking. These thoughts where quickly put at total ease as soon as the owners started to contact us by email and already made us feel very welcome to share their home with us. The personal contact helped to calm the nerves and the information we received by email was first class! We found the property very easily because Mike sent us great directions up front. The villa itself was out of this world not only because it looks so great but because of the level of cleanliness and the available utilities both inside and outside. We have two very small children and we felt secure all the time although we did need to be careful near the swimming pool. Absolutely no problem when you have two small children though because you are on your guard all the time anyway. Being a secure garden helped us to worry even less about the kids and also enjoy the fantastic outdoor amenities available to us. We really enjoyed filling up the outside fridge with cold drinks and spending time around the swimming pool in the afternoon and evening. We cooked every day and found the cooking utensils fully adaquate for what we needed. The local beach is only 5 mins away in the car and it is also fantastic for families. Thanks to Mike and his family we had a fantastic time and we would definitely recommend this property to people with or without children.

"Peaceful and private"
I did not review this property when we returned as I felt like I wanted to keep this place to ourselves. But months on, we are still talking about how wonderful it was, so it was time to share! We fell in love with it the minute we stepped through the garden door, it opened up into a very large, very private garden, the pool was a very good size and the privacy was so unexpected with mature trees around the perimeter stopping any one overlooking, and tucked away within more trees shrubs and flowers was a pond. I cannot fault anything about this villa, it was beautifully decorated and the bed was comfortable with a lovely view of the garden and pool, we did not need to shut the curtains at night as it was so private, which meant we woke up to that view for our whole stay. if you do not want to drive the 5 minutes to town, the local restaurants serve fantastic food and are literally two minutes walk from the villa, but as we felt so at home here we shopped at the two large supermarkets on the edge of town and then hid away in our own secret garden for most of the holiday. There is an incredible barbecue and bar area also a place to keep all your drinks cold behind the bar, everything has been thought through, you could not ask for more. Rattan garden furniture & sun beds with mattresses, just wonderful, what a find! Thank you for letting us have a taste of paradise.

"Amazing villa! "
This is THE most relaxing villa I have ever stayed in. The garden and pool area are outstanding. The outdoor furniture is of fantastic quality and made lounging around all day even more of a pleasure. We just could not fault anything at all. Great location, excellent facilities. Like your own private paradise but near to all local amenities. Try the Indian restaurant and little German bar round the corner. They are brilliant for those days when you just cant raise the energy to go further afield! One week is NOT enough.

I was reluctant to write this review as I did not want to share this little piece of paradise I found. everything about it suits our party of four that holidays there, from the beautiful gardens to the comfortable sun loungers, it has various al fresco dining areas and its own bar. the interior of the villa is clean spacious and privacy for two couples sharing. Its location for the main town of calpe is a beautiful coastal 10min walk, which has wonderful and varied resturants, all in all a wonderful place to holiday.

I cannot rate this Villa high enough. Although a two bedroom villa you have the grounds for the size of a 6 bedroom property with the garden being very private giving the send of being in the middle of nowhere yet you are within walking distance of all the amenities that you require. The villa and pool is cleaning thoroughly once a week, again, stocked with every requirement necessary to have an excellant holiday. The BBQ is brilliant for outdoor eating with the local food being very price competitive. There are a number of local restraunts with the Phoenix being the best although a little expensive but very much worth it. The only drwaback of this Villa is the time when you have to go back home to the UK - I just never want to leave.

"The pool and garden area far exceeded our expectations. The setting is quite lovely and completely secluded. Sun is available all day in the garden for the sunworshippers (my wife!) and the naya provides a peaceful and comfortable shaded area. Calpe beach and plenty of bars and restaurants are a 15 minute walk away but the villa is so lovely it is hard leave. I would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return again."
"The pool and garden were excellent and the bar area provides seating in shade from the sun when required. Good communication from the owners re. our arrival."
"We were all delighted with the facilities at this property, the pool, the bar, the garden and the accommodation were all first rate. My children especially enjoyed the pool and secluded garden."
"The property exceeded all our expectations. It was immaculate and the accommodation and surroundings were perfect for a family holiday. We also received excellent communication from the owners."
