Overview

About the property

3 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, suitable for 6 people

A spectacular 3 double bedroom detached villa set among olive, almond & fruit trees. You will enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and the Serpis river flowing in the valley below, which is great to swim in during the summer. The pool (9x5 m) with Roman steps is for villa guests exclusive use. It is suitable for all ages and comes with sun loungers and umbrellas. The covered veranda (with its sea view corner) and the sun terrace are equipped with a BBQ, tables/chairs, sun loungers and are fully enclosed and child friendly. Some of our guests have commented on the unforgettable pleasure of lying by the pool in the stillness of the night, watching the moon rise over the mountains and counting shooting stars.

Accessibility & Special Interest Holidays: The villa is on one level and is suitable for people with mobility problems and are easily accessed by wheelchair users. You will find lots of places to sit, relax and take in the breathtaking surroundings. While all beaches have some wheelchair access, Oliva's Blue Flag sand dunes beach offers access all the way to the water and provides toilets and changing rooms by the sea. Great for children as well. Being a bay, the water is very warm and safe from strong waves.

For those of you wanting to take even more advantage of the tranquil and beautiful settings, biodynamic

massage, creative drawing, life and relationship coaching, as well as relaxation sessions by highly experienced practitioners, can be provided by request. Maid service and baby sitting available on request at 10 euros per hour.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for giving us a chance to spend a fantastic week in this wonderful place. The unique location of villa Majones makes it possible to feel another reality, which is certainly different from the big city life. Here you are in close contact with nature, picturesque landscapes give a sense of tranquility, peace and relax. It took us a little while to adjust to the amazing silence especially at night. Just fantastic. By the way, cars with normal suspensions are ok, but now low suspensions as the last bit of the road to this paradise is unsaved.

P.S. Tell Rufus and Lea bye from us, we enjoyed their visits and thank

You for your support. We love Gandia beach

Being 300 meters above sea level, like most of our guests, you will probably find that the mountain location provides soothing breezes even on the hottest days and nights. So leaving your window open you can sleep quite comfortably. In our experience, the cooling equipment is hardly ever used. For those of you wishing to rent during the off season, a large log burning stove is provided in the dining/lounge area. And there is plenty of wood. The rest of the villa can be heated by portable gas heaters. We can provide an outside umbrella heater so that the covered varanda & sun terrace can be used throughout the year. See 'Further Details' Section for comments from our guests.

Petit coin de paradis perché dans la montagne

  • 5 of 5

La villa Majones est un véritable petit coin de paradis. Pour les amoureux de la nature, il ne faut avoir aucune hésitation ! La montagne entoure la villa et sa piscine. Martha est au petit soin pour ses hôtes. Discrète mais présente si besoin. Nos 2 filles de 6 et 9 ans se sont éprises de Rufus, chien de Richard et Martha, très attachant. La piscine est superbement bien exposée et on y rentre comme dans un bain ! L éducation à l environnement et au gaspillage avec les enfants prend toute sa siginication dans cette villa raccordée à l eau de pluie.

Fantastic villa, gorgeous views and so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the villa. We have been to the area several times before, but never stayed at such a tranquil, beautiful place.

The views were amazing and it was lovely to have dinner outside and see the stars come out after dark.

The girls (aged 6 and 6) loved the surroundings and the pool especially as it was warm, safe and helped improve their diving!

Martha and Richard are lovely and are available to ask questions, advice if you ever need it and nothing is too much trouble.

I would highly recommend this villa and will hopefully be back soon with my sister and her family.

The perfect place to chill, relax and spend quality time as a family.

Owner's Response: One of the things that Richard and I enjoyed the most is to see our Guests going back home looking relaxed and radiant. The fact that they spent a lot of the time relaxing by the pool or reading and enjoying the cool breezes of the River Terrace, having BbQs at home, after coming back from the beach or touring seems to contribute to it, I think. The way of life in this part of Spain is still very 'Spanish' and relaxed, which makes it pleasurable to try the local food and take part in the many colorful Summer festivities of the local towns. We are blessed with the families and couples who come to Villa Majones. They are people who look after their environment, treat the villa as their own homes with care and respect. This family was a pleasure to meet and it will be a pleasure to see them when they decide to come back to holiday in Villa Majones again.

The perfect place to relax with spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect time lounging around the pool in Villa Majones. We enjoyed the serenity and isolation of the villa, which provided perfect peace and quiet. The

children really enjoyed the pool which was warm and very clean. The views from the terrace are breathtaking and made sitting out for dinner in the evenings very special.

Throughout our stay we ate at a variety of places . Of these, we found La Taska, Casa Babel and El Cantonet to be particularly enjoyable and very good value for money.

It was amazing to see all the wildlife around the villa; geckos, bats, tarantulas and a variety of birds. Martha and Richard were perfect hosts very unobtrusive but there if needed.

Thank you so much for our time in this beautiful place. We will remember this holiday forever and hopefully return in the not to distant future.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed this family's stayed very much and yes, it is an extremely beautiful part of Spain, which offers the possibility of unwinding and relaxing as well as the oppurtunity to enjoy the local beaches and to visit the nearby town which still maintain traditional custom and colorful fiestas.

Beautiful relaxing villa on a mountain

  • 5 of 5

Al fresco dining on the veranda and then relaxing at the loungers watching the sunset

Over the mountains.. Saying good night to the 3 wise men at sunset (see if you can spot them!).. And the amazing smell from the flowers when they opened their petals at the end of the Night. It is THE memory I'm taking with me....haven't been that relaxed in a very long time.

Peaceful villa outstanding views

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from this lovely villa, it has to be said the drive up the mountain to the villa is a little bumpy but with glorious views, when you reach the villa with its beautiful veranda looking out directly over the mountains its well worth it. If you are looking for relaxation and peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings then you wont find better than this. Richard and Martha are lovely and very understanding we had 4 teenage boys with us who loved the pool and of course Rufus the dog who we wanted to take home with us. The villa itself was comfortable and with enough space to accomodate all 6 if us although the bathroom could have been a little bigger we all managed fine. We would highly recommend this villa and hope to return one day.

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This place is just wonderful! There were six of us in our party, myself my partner and our daughter (aged 3), my mum, dad and sister and each of us all agree, this is the perfect place for a secluded family get away.

The pool is wonderful and the views while swimming just take your breath away. Also, for young families, it is safely locked away behind a fence so no issues with wandering toddlers!

The house itself is ideal, a great little kitchen and three bedrooms with comfy beds, but the terrace is the real star of the show. We were each left speechless when we first walked out to the most amazing views of the Spanish hills and each and every one of us had at least one siesta out there as, not only is it beautiful, but silent too.

Yes, the villa is a little off the beaten track (to be specific it is quite a way up a mountain with no phone reception or Wi-Fi) but if I am honest that is exactly what we needed, to be away from everyone and everything. You can visit Villalonga, Gandia, Gandia Beach etc easily enough in the car and Valencia is only a train ride away so its location is perfect really, just close enough to entertainment if you want it but far enough away too.

Martha and Richard were brilliant, we may not have seen much of them but when we needed advice and help they were always on hand. Martha changed all the sheets after the first week and my daughter especially loved her horse bedding during week two!

We have had many wonderful family holidays and this one is right up at the top.

La Safor is a mountain range designated as a nature park with many walks, waterfalls and picnic areas. The typical agricultural Spanish town of Villalonga is within easy reach and has several banks, bars & restaurants.

The historical Ducal city of Gandia is 12 kms away and is very enjoyable to visit, be it for a walk on the tree lined promenade, shopping or to attend a local concert, visit a good restaurant or enjoy its vibrant night life. Just a short distance away from Gandia you find yourself in Gandia’s Marina, with its prize winning blue flag beaches. Oliva town, 12 kms away, has a colourful Friday market. Oliva’s blue flag beach has a protected chain of sand dunes and good restaurants serving local cuisine, fish and great pizzas. For Golf enthusiasts, the well known Oliva Nova Golf, which was designed by Seve Ballesteros, is within easy reach. Also within easy reach are the La Sella (Denia) and Javea golf courses as well as the El Sela gold course (south of Valencia)
