A big, big thank you to Mark and family for letting us stay at their lovely villa in beautiful Busot once again!

Georgina & I have stayed at this property a number of times now and have fallen in love with the area, which is beautiful and very peaceful. It feels like it is a million miles from anywhere but in reality is just a short 15 minute drive to the beautiful beaches of El Campello and about 30 minutes or so to the lovely city of Alicante, which has a unique vibe all of its own and where there is always plenty to do.

The villa itself is lovely and very spacious. The pool / garden area is huge and is a great place to sunbathe and relax during the day or to have a BBQ in the evening.

We have just returned from a two week stay with our son, daughter-in-law a new 5 month old grandson and we all had a brilliant time – very attentively looked after during our visit by Clare & Peter who live close by and are always on-hand should anything be required.

We would not hesitate in recommending anyone to this villa and are already planning our next visit!

A big thank you once again to Mark & his family!

Outstanding in every way

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week at the villa and it was everything we could have hoped for. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the weather was glorious so this was an added bonus.

The villa was exactly as described with all facilities in excellent working order. The villa was clean and ready on arrival with beds made and towels all ready to use.

Kitchen was well stocked with plates, cups, pots and pans as well as a very useful welcome pack of tea bags, milk, fresh orange and biscuits - a lovely thought.

The swimming pool was a good size and well maintained and clean - it was very welcome during our stay.

It is very quiet and peaceful yet close to all amenities and only 10 minutes from the nearby resort of El Campello - a car is a definite requirement.

Can't thank Mark, the owner of the villa, enough for being so helpful and accommodating - I felt very comfortable dealing with him.

On arrival we were met by Clare who was very friendly and helpful and said we should contact her if there was anything at all we needed or wanted to ask.

We have a fabulous time and would certainly recommend the villa and will hopefully return in the future.

Thanks Mark.

A lovely little holiday house

  • 5 of 5

This house provides everything you need for a comfortable holiday stay. It is well located in a peaceful location within very easy reach of the local village of Busot. El Campello is just down the road where the old town, beach front, good selection of restaurants and facilities are still Spanish and very enjoyable. The tram service from El Campello is fabulous and this house is a great base from which to get around or just to chill out in.

Mark who owns the property was very helpful and informative from the beginning. We did not want to bother with car hire this holiday so Mark put us in touch with the couple who maintain the house for him and they collected us from airport and provided a taxi service for the six of us for our two week stay.

There are at least 5 or 6 café/bars in Busot. The English bar host very friendly, La Casa in the old village is a lovely authentic restaurant with a very friendly hostess. The bar at the football ground was very friendly, we did not eat there but some locals did so that's always a good sign!

Overall a very welcoming holiday house, we will definitely be back at some point. Thanks Mark and to all involved in making our stay so pleasurable and easy to organise.

Owner's Response: Dear Sharon & family, Thank you so much for your kind words. Really happy you had a lovely holiday with your base at our villa in Busot. Our housekeepers really enjoyed having you there & were more than happy to help out where required. We love the area too as it's so relaxing with lots to see & do if you get the urge to do something a little more energetic. We look forward to welcoming you back to our House in the Sun another time in the years ahead. Warmest regards, Mark & family

Beautiful Villa - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything that we needed for our stay. You can totally relax here but can easily get to busier areas if you want a change of pace. Tim who meets and greets you and is on hand for the duration of your holiday, should you need him, couldn't be more helpful.

Busot itself is lovely to relax and wind down and we enjoyed the football of an evening at the local pitch.

We would highly recommend this villa.

We would like to say a big thank you to Tim and Mark for the help and assistance they gave to us at the end of our stay!!!
