About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, sleeps 7 with views over orange groves towards Gandia

3 bedroom holiday villa, sleeping 7 people in two double bedrooms and one triple (bunk beds plus single). There are two bathrooms, one of which is en-suite. English TV, PlayStation 3, DVDs, boardgames, kids toys and books available. Fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and tumble dryer, central heating for the winter months. Outdoors the villa has a private pool with loungers, gazebo and barbecue area. The large terrace offers amazing views over orange groves to the neighbouring villages and surrounding mountain ranges. There is parking for two cars and the villa is secure with gated access.

Overlooked by a Moorish ruined castle and nestled into the wooded hillsides among the orange groves this is a peaceful retreat. Shops, banks and restaurants are a 5 minute drive or 15/ 20 minute walk away in the small town of Villalonga which also has a twice weekly market. Blue flag beaches are a 20 minute drive away as well as the historic town of Gandia, with museums, historical buildings and a large market.

The area is great for hikers, cyclists, sun seekers or those looking for a peaceful base to explore the Valencia and Alicante regions. Perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all!

About Michael James

We are a family of six living in the UK. We love going on holiday, and a few years ago decided to buy a property abroad so that we could enjoy more time getting away from it all.

Michael James purchased this villa in 2013

Why Michael James chose Valencia Province

We decided on a property close to Gandia because it gives us easy access from either Alicante or Valencia airports but is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists.

The nearby beaches are beautiful and the local village feels very Spanish and welcoming. There is plenty of opportunity for sightseeing nearby.

What makes this villa unique

We saw dozens of villas when house hunting for our place in the sun. We wanted a detached house with pool in a peaceful setting, and the moment we saw Villa Azahar we knew we'd found the perfect place for our family. It had all we were looking for, and more! The views from the terrace are stunning, during the day you can admire the orange groves across the valley, at night you see the shimmering lights of the neighbouring villages in the distance. We have enjoyed many happy family holidays here, and are certain you will like it, too!

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Lovely views, quiet location, north facing location means it's quite shady

  • 4 of 5

Lovely quiet spot and views. The house was perfect for our needs. It's on a north facing hillside so when we were there (October) the sun didn't appear from behind the mountain until about 9.30 and went behind the hill again about 2.30. This is probably quite an advantage in the summer months but in autumn it meant no breakfasts or evenings outside (the weather was also a little cool the week we were there). The neighbours were friendly and helpful. The tumble drier was useful as it was very humid during our stay and it was difficult to dry the towels.

Fantastic stay. Beautiful villa. Beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is so well equipped, with enough things to do to keep kids of all ages happy. From toys to board games to ps4's, and of course an amazing pool. The villa was very clean and tidy too. We had planned on eating out most days but ended up staying at the Villa and barbecued instead because it was so relaxing to eat looking out at the stunning views. We took several walks up to the castle ruins with our teenage boys, who loved the small hike up. The water park at cullera was great but just be prepared to pay for sunbeds once inside. We never had to pay for the floats though which was good. The beaches at Gandia are absolutely gorgeous with enough things to do to keep everyone occupied. Can't recommend this Villa enough. We will definitely be going back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. So pleased you had a great time, and managed to do so much! We love the waterpark at Cullera. If you're organised enough it can save you money by booking on line...also saves any queueing in the sun! Hope to hear from you again if you revisit the area. Regards Mike.

My husband and myself booked this villa for 2 weeks in May and we're delighted we picked this particular villa

It was beautiful, clean,light and airy.

The views are amazing ,from the villa you can see for miles, it was so peaceful, perfect holiday for us.

The pool is large and was fantastic to cool off in.

The villa itself has 'everything' a family could require entertainment wise ,very well stocked indeed , we shopped locally, usually at the market which is twice a week, (fantastic value)

We can not recommend this villa highly enough and will definetely be back. The neighbours George and Joan are wonderfull, and so helpful, The owners were so helpful also with any queries we had.

Perfect villa with pool, perfect holiday,

H&D G.
