Comfortable Villa with private pool and gardens in family-friendly Moraira



Updated: 01-Oct-2016
Spacious 5 bed, 4 bath villa. Sleeps 10-12, 10mins from the beach.

Our family has grown up in this villa, relaxing together, eating together and most of all having lots of fun together. And we still love it! There is so much space to spend time all together, or find your own space for some peace and quiet. The master double bedroom is on the ground floor, and features a walk-in shower, plus bath en-suite. There are 4 further bedrooms upstairs (1 double, 2 twin, 1 bunk), while 2 more guests can fit on folding beds in the playroom (best suited to children/smaller people). The large table in the Naya is perfect for al fresco meals together, especially those cooked on the built-in BBQ. Please pick the lemons from the trees in our orchard to squeeze into your G&T or make homemade lemonade. There are plenty of sunbeds, and a mix of shade and sun around the garden and on the upstairs terrace throughout the day. The 9mx5m pool is 2m deep and a great size for kids to play in. If the weather necessitates a move indoors, the kitchen table can also accommodate everyone together, then there's a living room with FreeSat TV and a playroom with well-stocked bookshelves, puzzles and games for all ages. There are 4 bathrooms, central heating, fans and FREE WIFI for your convenience. This is an area of Spain in which a car is essential, and the villa driveway can comfortably accommodate 3 cars, 4 if necessary. We are situated within an hour from Alicante and Valencia airports, some world-class culture, walking, beautiful beaches, watersports, Michelin-starred restaurants, vineyards, golf courses and much more. We would be delighted to give you our family recommendations of places of interest nearby. Moraira itself is a friendly small town with a varied expat community, plenty of local amenities and a couple of lovely beaches, popular for family holidays. Though there are a few lively bars and one nightclub (though not disturbing the villa), a party/hen weekend town this is not!

About the Owner

The Forwood family bought this villa in 1989, and have enjoyed welcoming friends and family there on holiday ever since. I (Debbie) am now marrying one of the next generation of Forwoods, and administrating the letting of their villa alongside my 'normal' life as an entrepreneur. We're all based in London. The above photo shows us relaxing with some friends on a scuba diving holiday in 2015. Cheers!

Villa Mimosa - Stunning - it makes your heart ache to leave

  • 5 of 5

The first impression is the very steep driveway, but to be honest, once you've navigated it once, it's a piece of cake.

The property itself is Magical. It feels like home the minute you walk under the arch, and turns into a Tardis as you walk through it. It's deceptively huge, but commfy and cozy at the same time.

More than adequate bathroom/shower/toilet facilities and as for bedrooms, choose a different one every night and you won't be dissappointed. Fans in them all and beautifully cleaned sheets, and adequate storage space for clothes and bags.

Wifi and Sky TV for the kids when the sun is too hot in the PM but tbh, there is plenty of shade around outside if you wanted it.

Talking of outside, wow, need i say more. Beautifully kept and well presented. A banana tree, a green orange tree, a lemon tree, all bearing fruit and giving lovely aromours.

The Pool is awesome. Perfect size and depth pitch, perfectly maintained by a very charming pool man. The key holders are lovely and incredibly helpful, as was Debbie. It all contributed to a fabulous, stressfree holiday. And the kids say it's the best holiday ever!!!!.....

There were 7 of us (4 adults, 3 children), and it was perfect. THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make our stay awesome.

Looking forward to going back in a couple of years time when we've saved up..

The property was very well equipped especially the kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

We all had a really good time, our ages ranged from 9 to 70. The pool was a good size for splashing around with the kids and for actual swimming, although the last step into the pool was very deep, I went from waist deep to shoulders in one step and I'm 5ft 2. The shops and bars were only a 5 minute walk away from the villa and the supermarket there was very well stocked, the meat counter was amazing. The beach was very clean and Moraira town had lots of bars and restaurants. The villa and surrounding area is a great venue for families. We are thinking about booking for next year.

From the Owner

We love entertaining, and this villa is perfect for an extended family holiday, a big celebration or a holiday with friends. Moraira is such a friendly, relaxed resort that has avoided the high-rise development and noisy beach bars of places like Benidorm (20 mins away), while at the same time benefitting from its existence through plentiful and cheap flights to Alicante from all over the UK! We and our guests all love the pool - deep enough and big enough to play some seriously fun games with inflatables. In fact, it can be difficult to pull yourself away from the villa to explore the area, but DO, because the Alicante mountains are stunning, the sunsets over Calpe rock are not to be missed, and there's lots more to the Costa Blanca to be explored if you've had enough of relaxing on the beach.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Alicante at 95 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Bariloche at 500 Metres Nearest Golf : Club Golf D'Ifach at 5 Kilometres Nearest Train : Benidorm (tram to Alicante) at 41 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : AP7 at 12 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : La Posada at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : L'Ampolla Beach at 2.5 Kilometres Car: necessary

The Costa Blanca is well known as a beach-lover's paradise, but Moraira's position near the Alicante mountains also makes it a great base for avid walkers, climbers and mountain-bikers. Watersports enthusiasts are well provided for, with numerous scuba diving centres, jetski hire, SUP, even kite-surfing nearby. You definitely need a car in this part of Spain, which which the theme parks of Benidorm, the cultural delights of Valencia, and/or historical ruins are all within your reach, according to your enthusiasms!

From the Owner

In the mornings, we set the outside table for breakfast in the sunshine while the boys nip to a nearby shop to buy fresh croissants and bread. On Friday mornings we'll then head to the market in town to pick up local meat, vegetables and the best nuts you have ever tasted! As the sun climbs higher in the sky and we return home and generally flop around reading or sun-bathing until we get too hot! But then we can pull the sun-loungers into the shade or go for a refreshing dip in the pool, and this is usually when I'll pick lemons from the tree in our orchard, mix with ice and a little sugar, and serve homemade lemonade to everyone. Lunch is usually taken around the enormous table under the shade of the veranda, and a siesta probably follows. Villa Mimosa is in a residential area, so there's rarely any noise to disturb your nap! Early evening some friends join us for drinks and nibbles, and as the sun sets and cicadas start trilling, we'll start preparing the BBQ. Everything tastes better when it's cooked outside! You'll be pleased to know we have two fridges, so there is PLENTY of room to chill enough beer or wine for everyone as well as storing a big food shop. We've stayed at Villa Mimosa every summer for over 25 years - it's well set up for big families, for entertaining and having a LOT of fun. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Best wishes, family Forwood.
