House has everything you need and in central location for shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Met at the end of toll road by Gail who we luckily followed to the property , narrow windy streets in the old town of Oliva. House large and had everything we needed for our stay, including ample kitchen equipment. Bed was comfortable and had towels and extra blankets. We stayed in January so evenings got cold but had gas heater in lounge and an electric one in bedroom if we needed it. House comfortable, had English sky tv and WiFi which all worked well. Gail keep in touch if we needed anything. Lovely restaurant just around the corner, friendly and good food and we ate there most evenings. The main town literally straight down a few roads with shops, bars, restaurants and atms. The roof terrace was very large and got the sun all day, was warm enough to sunbathe one afternoon! Negotiating the way out of town was bit scary first time as lots of narrow one way streets but just go for it, it was fine. Few little English bars down the road where friendly and informative. This property was perfect for our use.

Real Spain

  • 4 of 5

As many other reviews state the house is extremely spacious and provides an authentic Spanish experience as it is based in the Oliva old town. Houses very close to each other, locals very friendly, always saying good day / afternoon / evening. On street parking close by - 5 minute walk. Superb restaurant and cafe within 5 minute walk as well - one very Spanish ( El Pelut ) and one very English ( Cafe Molino ). Lots of facilities in the town nearby. Gail met us and was brilliant. House is designed to be cool for the summer so if you visit in Winter take sufficient warm clothes and budget for supplies of wood for the excellent wood burner in the house. Dave the house owner responded very quickly if any aspects of the house needed repairing. Overall great value and a great experience

True Spanish holiday, stay amongst the locals

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience a true valacian house living amongst the locals, this is the place to do it. If you want penthouse luxury look elsewhere!

The house is spacious and equipped for all your needs. The beds are comfy, well the double one is didn't sample others. There is English TV and wifi. There is also a log fire which we made use of our one rainey day. There are three different level roof terraces for all day sun, one with BBQ. Shops, bars and restaurants are within easy stroll with more further a field. The beach is a good 40 minute walk but it is a lovely walk and quicker by car. The local streets are like a maze with one way and no entry not so fun in a car but great to explore on foot! We did find our way out and back by car, no parking directly outside the house but street parking available relatively close.

We were met by house manager at the toll booths, we then followed her to the house. Just follow instructions about contacting her the week before your visit.

It was the Fallas festival while we were there, it's s festival of fire, children were setting firecrackers off during the week, we saw the statues that they build but left on the Saturday am before the main celebrations on the Saturday and Sunday night.

As well as exploring the village on foot ( there are historic trails to follow) we visited Gandia, Denia and also took a trip into the mountains, beautiful scenery with hair raising drops. But with good weather you can just chill on the roof terrace.

If you can't say anything nice !

  • 1 of 5

You know the old saying, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything" ? Well that about sums up our experience.

We won't be back, we certainly won't recommend the property, or Oliva for that matter, to anyone.

Owner's Response: I was really sad to read this review, because I've always loved the house and the area - as have the majority of our guests. I emailed these particular guests for feedback after they returned from holiday, but they didn't respond so it's impossible to know what they didn't like't.

Location

Nearest Airport
50 Miles
Midway between Alicante and Valencia
Car: not necessary

Oliva is in the 'Orange blossom coast' of Spain. Within a few minutes drive from the house you will find orange and lemon groves, mountains, miles of beautiful beaches and many lovely towns and villages. If you fancy something more 'touristy' you could drive south towards Benidorm and Alicante, where you will soon find many facilities for tourists, including a large theme park. There are plenty of more sedate activities nearby, including golfing and yachting. Going north from Oliva will take you into Valencia, which is Spain's third largest city and is well worth a visit.
