Why Maureen Barkworth chose Alicante Area

The villa is very well situated, near to a small, but well stocked supermarket, the coastal tram line(so we don't always need to hire a car when we come out), the newly completed children’s play area, adjacent to the bars and restaurants, so they are always in sight, safely playing while we enjoy pre dinner drinks and the area is only serviced by minor, residential roads, so no traffic to worry about. Also, Coveta now has its own gym, for those that wish to keep up their fitness levels while away. Also, the beach tavernas found at the main, natural cove, do fantastic paellas and fresh, locally caught fish, so we really have found our Shangrila!

What makes this villa unique

We chose to buy this holiday villa mainly because the accommodation was ideal for our expanding family, the pool is fenced and safe and being heated means we can enjoy the villa all year round(when not being enjoyed by our villa guests, of course) and whenever things get tough in UK, we can always visualize ourselves sitting on the verandah, with a glass of wine, watching the sunset, with not a care in the world. The villa has been registered with the Spanish Tourist Board.

The pool heater, when used with the roller thermal blanket, will heat the pool to approximately 30 degrees. As the average day time temperature in December, January and February is only 17 - 20 degrees, in our opinion, this isn't warm enough to enjoy the use of the pool, so the heater is generally out of commission during these months, however, if you feel you would benefit from the heater being commissioned(at the extra cost of 100 per week) please just ask when you make an enquiry.

Villa by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at this villa and hope to return sometime. The villa was very clean, comfortable and peaceful, with lovely views of the coastline. It's only a 10 minute walk to local restaurants and also the tram station from which you can visit various places along the coast. Brian and Maureen were also a pleasure to deal with.

`Step off the carousel of life`

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Carlanna is in a fantastic location with some amazing views out over the sea that are simply breath-taking day and night.

The villa is well appointed and on arrival the level of cleanliness was exceptional thanks to Maureen and her team, Sorry Brian!

The equipment in the villa works well and the Wi-Fi and internet connection is very strong. The bed in the master bedroom offers a very good night’s sleep but you will need the air-conditioning on.

The pièce de résistance is the swimming pool, well maintained and clear blue.

The whole place has a very excellent vibe and is in an idyllic location for a relaxing break. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone.

The only negative for me and Carole was the fact that we had leave the villa and come home.

Many thanks to Brian and Maureen

P.S try the local bars and restaurants they are fantastic especially the `Cheeky Monkey`

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning villa and area , we could all have sat outside and looked at the sea view all day.

Maureen and Brian organised out transfers to and from the airport which went so smoothly, they are run from the local shop, who were the most friendly people you could imagine.( they use to drop off my 85 year old inlaws for free)

The local bars are great especially the cheeky monkey.

The tram service se fantastic 10 mins from El Campello which has great shops and bars plus a very large beach, and a lidl.

We had one slight problem but Brian was at the villa within 20 mins although it was nothing to do with the property. But all was sorted very quickly.

We shall be back to this wonderful place thank you Maureen and Brian for a wonderful holiday

John,Chris, Harry, Gill, Bradley, Joan, & Maurice.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous villa in a stunning setting with sea views from all sides. The villa was clean, well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. We are a family of 5 so the pool provided lots of entertainment. The area is lovely, the main beach at El Campello is a tram ride away but lots of shops, restaurants and white sands. The tram is great, runs every half an hour and stops at some lovely places from Benidorm to Alicante. Press the button to make it stop (as we learnt !).We loved the area of Coveta Fuma, I would recommend a car. The small square had some great restaurants and a lovely laid back vibe. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your favourable review of your recent stay in Villa Carlanna. Luckily the neighbours have just cut back their bushes more, so the view towards the cove is now even better! We hope to see you all again in the near future.

Excellent value for money

  • 4 of 5

Good kitchen and dining area though the sitting room has a strange layout with the TV rather divorced from the sofas. Great terrace facing south. Main double bed very good though the 2 single bedded rooms are not brilliant. Internet speed poor (2.5Mb).

Owner's Response: We are glad you found your longer winter stay in Villa Carlanna good. The lounge area is very bright and airy, so only has one suitable wall area to unobtrusively house the TV, the view afforded from the sofas, being towards the sea and pool area, which is favoured by our Spring/Summer guests. The leather sofa is very light, and can easily be turned of an evening to face the TV, if required. However, the view from the other sofa does give a direct view towards the TV, from which guests can enjoy the basic SKY package. The wifi speed provided for the villa is 3mb, which is normal for holiday villas, to allow for daily checking of emails while guests are staying. We are glad that we could be of help to you on many occasions during your stay, when you needed advice and assistance regarding postal deliveries, car repairs etc and look forward to perhaps hosting your next winter break.

A Christmas break in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful week in this villa over the Christmas holidays.

The Villa is located about 20 minutes drive from Alicante Airport so we decided not to hire a car. This turned out to be a good decision because everything we needed was only a 10 minute walk away, including the Coveta Fuma tram stop. The tram is a great way of getting around and only 5 minutes to El Campello.

On arrival Brian was there to meet us and showed us around the villa and explained how everything worked. He was even nice enough to take me on a quick drive around the area to show me where the Restaurants, shop and tram stop were located.

The villa itself is lovely, very well laid out and very clean and the perfect place for family or friends. The best part for me was the terrace outside with it's sea views(the pictures on the site do not do it justice) and all day sun, which is just what i wanted in December. The gardens in the villa are beautiful and well kept and has other terraces to sit if you want to be out of the sun. For the kids the heated pool was their highlight of the holiday. The pool was immaculately clean and the temperature was perfect (30°C).

I would also like to say dealing with Maureen and Brian was a pleasure. They were helpful and always on hand if i had any queries, and made the process of booking to arrival at the villa a stress free process. Our family will be returning to this wonderful place.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your favourable and kind comments about your recent stay in Villa Carlanna. Improvements to the villa have been made over the last few months, following a rather harsh and inaccurate review posted in the Summer. In ours, and the majority of the the villa guests opinions, the villa has everything a family could wish for to enjoy their stay and want to return. See you all again soon.
