About the property

2 bedrooms, bathroom, 2 wcs, large lounge/diner, 2 terraces, wifi, sleeps 4/6

Spacious house high up in the old town area of Oliva.

Oliva is an unspoilt market town which is in the 'Oranges and Lemons' region of Valencia, midway between Alicante and Valencia. It's on the southern tip of the Costa del Azahar - 5 miles away from the beginning of the Costa Blanca. The house is just 5 minute's drive from the magnificent uncrowded beach, which stretches 10 kilometres.

Upstairs - the terraced house has one large double room, another room with 2 single beds, and a toilet. Downstairs - there's a large front room/dining room (with a wood burning stove for the winter), a modern kitchen and a modern bathroom with toilet, bidet and bath/shower. Marble tiles throughout. The front room contains a bed settee which can sleep another 2 people.

Wifi is provided.

The 2 large roof terraces have good views over the town, Oliva castle, the mountains, and can also see the sea.

75 km from Valencia airport, 100 km from Alicante Airport.

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.

Really spacious inside, we enjoyed sun rise and sun set on the roof terrace.

  • 5 of 5

A great base to explore the beaches of Oliva, we were looking for a beach where you can take a dog and we found an almost empty stretch where it it is basically allowed , a 15 minute drive away. The house is great, authentic Spanish or Valencian barrio. Gail who met us was lovely.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This typical Spanish house is located in Old Town Oliva. It is in close proximity to a very good and welcoming Spanish Bar/Restaurant and a neighbourhood English bar with other eateries just a short walk away. A 5 minute walk to the Paseo places you in the downtown area where an assortment of shops, grocery stores and restaurants/bars await your discovery.

The home is two stories with a rooftop terrace that provides a place to enjoy the Spanish sun. It also offers panoramic views and a bar-B-que.

The home is equipped with 'Sky' T.V. and Wi-Fi so that it is easy to stay up to date with world events (if that is necessary) and in touch with family and friends who only wish that they could also be in SPAIN.

The local property manager was very informative and during our 3 month stay dropped by occasionally to see if we were in needed anything.

We are counting the days until we can once again return to this townhouse in Oliva.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Midway between Alicante and Valencia at 50 Miles Nearest Beach : at 3 Miles 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.

Notes:

  • The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac. The street is too narrow for parking but there are spaces on surrounding streets. The town centre is 5-10 minutes walk from the house, down a gentle hill that may be a little too steep for elderly or infirm people or very young children.
