About the property

Detached, Private, Mountaintop Villa With Two Bedrooms, Pool, And Stunning Views

This luxury villa is set in a quiet urbanisation on a mountaintop overlooking the Mediterranean. The 180 degree views from the front of the villa are quite stunning - all the rooms benefit from this. To the rear is an enclosed private 9x5m swimming pool where one can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. All rooms have hot/cold air conditioning making the property suitable for year round rental. The villa layout ideally suits two couples rather than children. One bedroom is located down three steps from the lounge, the other is accessed from an external staircase. Quirky but interesting. The lounge, diner and kitchen are open plan.The villa has been refitted with quality furnishings and is fully equipped to make your stay a real pleasure in an unusual and relaxing environment. All rooms have hot/cold air conditioning.

Please note: due to the quiet location, external staircase to the double bed bedroom and unfenced pool area this is not suitable for young children.

About Michael Murrell

Hello, my name is Michael and I am the proud owner of the casita that you have just looked at. I also live next door. I moved to Spain 7 years ago initially on a 'try it and see' basis. My plans changed and instead of moving to Javea I was offered a property inland. My initial disappointment changed the moment I arrived. The countryside and the people are fantastic. Here I can live in the real Spain without all the tourists! If I want that, a quick drive takes me to the bustle of the coastal towns. So my move to this property was based on the pleasure of living in the peace and quiet, but all the other options available to me within a few minutes drive.

So whilst I am here to welcome you , I am on hand for any help or information you may need (while being aware of your need for privacy)

Michael Murrell purchased this villa in 2011

Why Michael Murrell chose La Marina Alta

The North Costa Blanca (Marina Alta) provides the very best environment for healthy living and natural beauty. The joy of seeing the stars at night as there is no air pollution to hide them! The mountainous landscape with rich green valleys. The heady scent of orange blossom. The Med and its sandy beaches. The quaint little Spanish villages. The food, the wine and the people................. OK I could go on, but this really is one of the most beautiful parts of the world and my decision to move here was very easy. Living on top of a mountain enables one to enjoy the breathtaking vista of the sea, mountains, valley, orange groves and the little villages clinging to the foothills. With the changing light the view never ceases to change. It provides a real 'get away from it all' feel.

What makes this villa unique

It's an interesting mix of peace and quiet, but without being isolated. Take in the views and decide which part of this beautiful area to go and see more of. This villa feels different from many others because it's the right size for a holiday home - space and comforts, but no unnecessary wasted space. The private enclosed 9x5m pool is, of course, a real pleasure. But should you feel the need for a bigger pool the Pool Bar just down the road is freely available, or it's just a 15 minute drive to the sea. The Pool Bar also provides snacks and evening meals as well as a tennis court!

With the unspoiled countryside and mountain ranges this part of the world is perfect for walkers or cyclists. There are organised trips available or one can make own arrangements.

You can’t help but enjoy yourself here. Thanks Michael for a lovely relaxing time.

What a wonderful location! Great views all day. We really enjoyed staying in your lovely villa – all furnished and decorated in great taste. Thoroughly enjoyed the pool – great for cooling off in this weather.

Christmas in Benidoleig 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to stay for a relaxing winter break and a good base to explore ( by car ) the surrounding area on the Costa blanca. The resorts of Javea and Moraira are definitely worth a visit. The villa exceeded our expectations, modern, well maintained with stunning views. We were made to feel very welcome at the local bar / restaurant where we joined the locals on Christmas Day for lunch - delicious food and wine. Altogether, highly recommended.

Beautiful villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Casita Leon. Warm welcome from Michael and comfortable, well equipped accommodation with that rare commodity : sharp knives in the kitchen. WiFi good in the bedroom but weak and sporadic in the lounge area (the only negative!).

Fabulous area for biking and walking and good places to eat within a short drive. Would recommend.

Relaxing stay - stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at the villa, which is set up in the mountains above Benidoleig.

The villa is very modern with a kitchen/ diner /living room on the ground floor, one bedroom adjacent and one bedroom outside up a flight of stairs.

There is a swimming pool which looked very inviting but given that it was November, I wasn't tempted! The decor is very modern and comfortable.

Michael was very welcoming and accommodating during the stay. The views from the property are amazing, especially on a clear sunny day.

I would recommend a stay at this property.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Attention to detail and a warm welcome from Michael and Leyla, make this little gem a fantastic holiday location. Views amazing and the casita both inside and out was immaculate. Everything you could want for a great holiday, including the most comfortable bed! Michael is on hand if you require any information, but respects your privacy too. Lovely holiday. Chris and Tony

Gem of a Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best Villas we have ever stayed in , everything is spot on the photos do not do this place justice, It is a true credit to Michael, who keeps the villa and the fantastic pool in tip top order

the furnishing is high quality and really comfortable,

our 17 year old son loved the separate en suite upstairs it truly is ideal.

The views are stunning , and the mountain drives to both sides of the valley are really worth doing , lots of lovely and very cheap places to eat and drink only a few minutes by car , we had such a good time we have booked again for next July , cant wait to be back .

Another wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our third visit to Michael's casita, immaculate and totally relaxing as always. The setting is ideal for immediate unwinding, away from every day life, and Michael is the perfect host. There are plenty of good value restaurants in the vicinity offering great food and ambience, and the scenic drives through the mountains are breath-taking. So much so, we will be returning for our fourth visit next year!

The one thing that I need to stress (as many enquirers miss this) is to take note of my comments that I have made about suitability for children. Basically it is completely inappropriate for very young children. For older children I am happy to discuss further.
