The perfect villa holiday - read the reviews and ignore the photos.

  • 5 of 5

If you get a chance to book this villa, do so.

There are loads of great reviews of the villa and I don't want to repeat things that have already been said. You don't get that many people raving about the property if you aren't doing EVERYTHING right.

There were 8 of us who travelled, including our 2 grandchildren (under 2). We had 2 weeks in July and none of us wanted to come home.

The villa is a home, not a showhome, it is really well thought out. You walk in and straight away feel comfortable. The layout is perfect, the living areas are open plan with good size bedrooms/ bathrooms with plenty of storage. Having sky to distract kids at the hottest parts of the day is a masterstroke.

Outside is exceptional, there are loads of little spots where you can find shade from the sun and the views and sunsets from the roof terrace are spectacular. One review mentioned the stones, we found it easy to keep our toddlers away from them, as they just border the areas you use. It also stops wildlife invading.

The location of the villa is perfect, its really easy to get to from the airport, it takes 30 mins gentle driving. El Campello beaches, restaurants and supermarkets are excellent and are 10mins away - there is a great underground carpark in the centre of town that is cheap, easy to access and lets you get organised without being in the sun. There are also loads of other great little towns in a 10-15 min drive that are great for exploring including Busot of course.

The villa is set around 500m above El Campello, and in the foothills of the mountains and so you get a perfect gentle breeze.

Mark was brilliant throughout the whole process. His knowledge of the area is excellent and has some great suggestions. I don't think I ever waited more than an hour before he replied to an email and my deposit was back in my bank within a day of getting home.

The hosts Peter and Clare complete the service, again they have great knowledge of the area and are just down the road if you need them. The villa was spotless when we arrived and Peter cleaned the pool every 5 days, which was reassuring. They gave us a fabulous welcome and were just as lovely when we had to leave.

The service we have received has been second to none from start to finish and could not have been improved in any way. Its made a wonderful holiday completely perfect.

Thank you again for the service and letting us use your lovely home, we are already trying to work out when we can come back.

Beautiful location, faultless accommodation

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter, son and myself booked this villa as a relaxing, get together, chill out and escape holiday. It was a very easy place to stay, we had the luxury of a double room each, fully equipped kitchen, which meant we could take advantage of the wonderful food available locally, felt like home from home. The villa would easily accommodate a larger group of people.

It is a 15 min walk to local bars and restaurants, which are friendly, cheap and are generous with the portions (alcohol and food). A bit further on into Busot is a traditional square with restaurants to sit outside and enjoy the local atmosphere. Well away from the usual resorts on the Spanish coast. El Campello is a short drive away and is a really nice, typically spanish resort with good seafront, supermarkets and the Wednesday market is well worth a visit.

All in all, a perfect holiday in a peaceful location with easy access to entertainment if needed.

The photos do not do the villa justice, all communication with the owner was easy and he answered any questions I had very quickly. Claire and Peter looked after us very well on arrival and were very easy to get on with.

I would love to return to this area in the future for a longer period of time to explore more.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took a lot of time choosing the villa for our vacation in Spain and were happy that this villa (our first choice) was available for the dates we wanted. We had a few email exchanges with the owner (Mark) and I would like to say what a pleasure it was to deal with him. Every question and email we sent was answered promptly and always addressed our questions.

We arrived at the Alicante airport later than scheduled. We phoned the contact number provided and spoke to Claire, who advised that she and Peter would be at the villa to greet us. We followed the directions provided and had no problems finding the villa. Claire met us and showed us round. The first impression of the villa exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, very well-equipped and very spacious. The location was lovely and very peaceful.

The villa provided an excellent base for our stay and we toured the beautiful surrounding countyside for the duration of our stay.

I would certainly recommend this villa

Lovely Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a quiet stay in the sun away from any street noise & other distraction. This fitted the bill perfectly. Big house in 800m2 private plot with a beautiful swimming pool & terrace to relax on the perfect sunny afternoons, what more would anyone wish for on holiday?

The views over the mountain range in the morning were stunning as were the sunsets later in the day. We used the bikes provided to explore the local area & even ventured down to the beach on a couple of occasions. Be warned, it's quite steep coming back home after a day on the beach & promenade!

All in all a perfect way to relax while the UK shivered & grey skies back home.

Would thoroughly recommend a visit to this tranquil spot in a wonderful old Spanish town.

Maravilloso!

  • 5 of 5

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!
