About Virginia Coombes

In 1998 our family made a life changing decision to move to Spain, we bought our villa in 2000 and lived in the house until our 4 children gradually left home for university and work in the UK. My husband and I now live in the UK full time and holiday at the villa when we can.

The villa is more than a holiday rental its home from home.

Virginia Coombes purchased this villa in 2000

Why Virginia Coombes chose Valencia Province

We have had many family holidays here with friends and relatives they all tell us what a relaxing time they have had there's so much for the children to do and plenty of space so you don’t get under each others feet.

What makes this villa unique

When we decided to buy a property we had looked at many but when we saw this villa we fell in love with the arches on the terrace, the jasmine and bougainvillea growing up the walls and the wonderful palm trees. Since buying we have renovated all the bathrooms and the kitchen to a high standard.

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(44 traveller reviews)


Perfect for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this property before and it was just as great at the first time! It is the perfect property for a large group as there are many different ways you can spend yours days: playing boules, tennis, laying by the pool or reading a book on the balcony. The new pool is gorgeous. The bar area on the lower floor is a great place to congregate in the late afternoon. We cooked most of the days as the villa is very well equipped and the local produce purchased at the market in the centre of Valencia (about 15 mins drive) is hard to beat. The owners are great and very responsive. I have recommended this properties to many families who are looking for a great holiday property where they can spend time together. I recommend hiring a car. Looking forward to going back again in 2017!

Great family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Excellent for a family holiday. We were grandparents with sons, wives and total 5 children between 1 and 8. Swimming pool and tennis court were enjoyed by all. Equipment provided for outdoor sports was very welcome.The kids loved playing in the garden.

Plenty of beds/bedrooms for all. Kitchen and bathrooms are modernised.

Good new restaurant and supermarket 10 minutes walk away.

Excellent customer service by owners and their agents.

Garden paths including access to front door was uneven and some garden steps dangerous for small children and those with disabilities.

Some outdoor furniture in poor condition.

We would highly recommend this for a family holiday.

Wonderful place for 12 adults

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a great holiday at Villa Maria. Our party consisted of 2 families with grown up children and their partners. There was ample room for all 12 of us. The villa is extremely well equipped with all the things that you would need bats, balls, pots ,pans etc The pool was used throughout every day as was the tennis court and table tennis.

We didn't hire cars and got taxis from the airport, about €20. On arrival at the villa, Tigger was there to meet us and demonstrate a few things and give us some information. There is a supermarket about a ten minute walk away which was very handy so we'd walk down and do a big shop and get a taxi back (€7). The metro into Valencia is about a 20-25 min walk away but was easy to work out how to use it after doing some homework from the villa using the wifi. All in all this place is the ideal place for a large number to have a lovely relaxing holiday with out being on top of each other. Thanks Villa Maria, we hope to be back.

Just perfect for our annual family get together!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was generously provided for which made our stay so much more relaxing – the children didn’t really go anywhere and didn’t need to – they improved their swimming and tennis skills and it was lovely to have some lego, books and playthings for the little ones. The very good things were the two big supermarkets only 5 minutes away for stocking up, the proximity of Valencia airport, the perfect swimming pool and the house itself which was well laid out for some privacy between groups, spacious, with a great choice of sitting out areas. It was well thought out to provide for a large number of people (which is not always the case). The hot weather and the young children meant that we didn't explore the area much but the adults found it easy to get into Valencia by metro. We had a really great time, loved the house and the children all want to go back, which is not something we normally do but will find it hard to better elsewhere!

Simply the best villa we have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week as a group of 12 - 3 families with children aged between 15 and 22. Quite simply the villa just has everything from a well equipped kitchen - well stocked library and board games - and outside you have a great pool and the highlight for us - the tennis court that combines as a multisports court. A real home from home!

On the build up to the trip all the information and correspondence with Andy and Virginia were timely and accurate. The description of the villa is exactly what you experience once you arrive and we would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to anyone. If you want peace and quiet there place is big enough to find some where - if you want a party - its just fantastic.

Thanks very much Andy and Virginia - all the other reviews were quite right!

Fab sprawling property.

  • 5 of 5

We set out looking for a villa for three family's and this one didn't disappoint. It had everything required and more "a real home from home". The 4 children made full use of the pool, tennis court garden or chilled watching dvds, while the adults joined the kids or found a quiet spot to read or chill. On days out we used an excellent local taxi firm suggested by the owners to explore valencia, because the villa is on the outskirts of the city we found this ideal as it was lovely and peaceful but close enough to all the attractions that valencia has to offer. Our favourite thing about our stay would have to be the times sitting together on the veranda either eating or just looking out onto the beautiful garden. Tx for a wonderful holiday. The Abernethy's, family and friends.
