About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom,1 on suite sleeps up to 8 with a sofabed

This typically Spanish villa, set in a valley surrounded by orange groves and pine covered mountains, is located approximately 1 mile from the local village in a secluded location. The villa is reached through secure gates along a palm lined drive which has parking for several cars. There are steps leading up to the the shaded terrace and living area. The swimming pool is 8m x 4m with a paella/BBQ house situated by the pool area. There is a full size enclosed tennis court surrounded by orange trees. The large, well maintained gardens contain various fruit trees and shrubs with plenty of places to sit and relax. I live on site in seperate accomodation for help and advice if required. Renters have complete exclusivity to the pool and tennis court. There is sky satellite television fitted.

There is a games room with a pool table, music, and a child friendly dart board. My wife is an aroma therapist who offers various forms of massage who also offers a yoga class on a Sunday morning for those interested.

Location Information: This is an idyllic setting in a beautiful rural location. There are stunning mountain views and pleasant walks; the area is flat enough for cycling or mountain biking in the surrounding pine covered mountains.

The village boasts 3 restaurants which serve the menu of the day, there is a supermarket, baker, a local chemist and a hairdressing salon. I also have access to another villa if i am booked so please enquire

Attractions in the area: The town of Gandia is 20 minutes drive away and has excellent shops and supermarkets. As this is an area where Spanish people live and work the town is open all year, unlike more tourist based towns that partially close out of season. Gandia beach is reputedly the best in Europe with its white sandy beach and beautiful promenade.

Inland are vineyards, orange and almond groves and quiet Spanish towns for those who like to explore.

The nearest beach, Tavernes Playa, is only 15 minutes drive and the town of Tavernes de la Valldigna is 10 minutes away. Alzira, with its busy shops, restaurants and nightlife is 8 minutes away.

A visit to Valencia city, hosts of the Americas Cup 2007, is recommended. Here you can visit the Oceanographic and science museum to name but two of the new tourist attractions. Benidorm, with its teeming night life and Terra Mitica theme park is an hour’s drive away. There is a new 18 hole golf cource called La Galiana

15 Mar 2009 - 19 Mar 2009 Date to be confirmed

This is one of the best-known and most emblematic festivals in Spain which continues to grow in popularity each year. Tens of thousands of visitors join the whole city of Valencia in this festival of fire, in a mood of excitement and gaiety. Fallas are giant figures built of paper mache, wood and wax, and which represent personalities and current events of the day. They may be symbolic or satirical in theme, realistic or comic-strip in style. Certainly they are elaborate, built with consummate care in different workshops around the city, over the course of the year. Known locally as 'Ninots', they go up in flames on StJoseph's Night (19 March), reaching a blazing climax near midnight, when flames leap skywards all over the city centre and thousands of fireworks discharge over the rooftops. Events unfold over several days beforehand, divided into Exaltation (Offering of Flowers),

About Robert

I have been renting for 11 years and have many renters who return here year after year some of which have become friends. I live on site with my wife who is a qualified therapist and yoga teacher . We have a seperate 3 bedroom accomadation. I look after the gardens and keep the swimming pool clean i also have chickens and a very frendly dog . Most of the people who stay here ask me about the area and advice on where to go and visit and have been very happy that we live here.

Robert purchased this villa in 2002

Why Robert chose Alzira

Read the write ups its a nice place just to switch off and chill and is very child friendly and safe

What makes this villa unique

The villa is in the sun all day with places beneath the orange tree's if you need the shade. There are plenty of walks in the mountains, the village is about 20 minuets walk or cycle there.

Review for villa

  • 5 of 5

First class villa that we enjoyed very much, a real put up your feet and relax place. Owner was very helpful and had a nice welcome pack for us to get started on. The bikes were great for going around and taking in some of the mountain views. I would recommend this villa to any family looking for a real get away from it all holiday.

Super Haus mit tollen Vermietern

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus bietet alles was man braucht. Die Lage ist sehr gut, Natur aber auch dicht an Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Die Vermieter sind die nettesten und hilfsbereitesten Leute die wir je im Urlaub kennen gelernt haben. Das Haus kann ich jedem der es buchen möchte empfehlen. Auf diesen Weg liebe Grüße an Robert und seine Familie von Tom, Fon und Uli

Exceptional in every way, and very good value stay

  • 5 of 5

The location, the property, and the help from the owner were really quite exceptional. The smell of the orange blossoms, along with free oranges and lemons of a quality rarely seen these days, was just wonderful. The house was a pleasure, with splendid faience ceramics, and great pool and eating outside area. The owner was one of the most interesting and certainly one of the kindest and most helpful people you could ever hope to meet.

We have to return to this place as we can't get it out of our heads. Absolutely First Class.

A perfect Location - a fantastic holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We found this villa on the internet by chance. This is a really lovely and pretty villa in an outstanding location nestled benath hills and mountains and a 20 minute drive from beautiful sandy beaches. The orange groves are wonderful and there are beautiful walks in the forests.There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. The villa is really lovely with verandas on 3 sides. Robert the owner has been a wonderful help and we have been made very welcome, whilst Debbie has provided us with reflexology and massage which we can highly recommend. We have visited with our dog and the garden is all fenced in and very suitable and safe. The weather for February was mostly good with temperatures ranging from 11 to 22 degrees C - but we were still able to sit out most days for breakfast and lunch. It would be nice to come back in warmer weather and use the pool.

It is a great place to stay. Thank you Robert and Debbie. All the best to you from Cherry, Urban and Poppy.

Our perfect holiday villa!

  • 5 of 5

Of the four wonderful weeks we spent in Spain the week at Villa Rosa was the best. The picture and descriptiun does not do it justice.Excellent, clean accomodation with every conceivable item necessary for a comfortable, enjoyable stay. From the private, well maintained pool to the tennis court, mountain bikes and well equipped games room this is truly a stunning place to spend time. Of the many places over the years we have visited this is the first we will be returning to. Robert, the owner, is the perfect host, always there when you want him, but otherwise respects your privacy ( his paella is spectacular! ). If you are looking for the perfect place to visit Valencia and the surrounding area, including lovely beaches, or just to chill out, look no further! Thank you so much Robert (and Roxy) for a superb Holiday.
