Traditional Spanish finca/villa

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 - 8

A 200-year-old restored finca (villa) in the traditional Spanish style, unique in its setting and styling.

From the stone walls, hand-cast terracotta tiles and wooden shutters, to the beautiful bancales surrounding the property, this is a place visitors return to year after year.

The views of the Montgo national park are breathtaking, with the valley laid out in front.

There are three bedrooms - a master bedroom with kingsize bed, ensuite bathroom and balcony views of the pool and gardens; two twin rooms which share a shower room with power shower.

A large living area includes two living rooms, a reading annex and a large kitchen-dining room.

Outside there are several areas to choose from, depending on the time of day. Outside he kitchen-diner, in front of the pool is a lounging area with sofas and chairs and an outdoor dining table - perfect for breakfast by the pool!

A large BBQ area sits just to the right of the kitchen with BBQ and paella facilities. Wooden chairs and tables are perfect for long lazy lunches while you watch the kids in the pool.

By the pool area is an Ibizan style chill out area with sofas and music centre, all shaded to keep you cool during the height of summer - great at any time of day and perfect for siestas.

A look-out area provides more dining options with a view of the Montgo which is hard to beat. Sit here and watch the sunset and the mountain turn pink and red while you sip a sundowner and listen to the birds.

A unique setting only minutes from the village activity of Jesus Pobre, and only a ten minute drive from the hubbub of Javea and Denia towns and beaches. Our rates include everything! No added extras. Cleaning is included. All linen except beach towels.

simply beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! Stunning villa/finca with everything you want for a relaxing family holiday. We were 2 adults , 2 16 year olds and a 3 year old and there was something for them all. Pool was great and the tree house a hit with the toddler! Village was just a 5 min drive and Javea port was beautiful. Most relaxed we have ever been on a holiday didn't want to come home . Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. As you say, there are so many different outside areas where you can chill out and take in the view - poolside, looking at the Montgo mountain at sunset, in the grounds. With the tree house, rope swing, pool and extensive grounds you can really relax and get away from it all, whilst your children are busy playing.

Fantastic holiday for all the family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mariposa in early October and had the most fabulous time. The house is beautiful, full of character and the grounds are breathtaking. You could easily stay here without wanting to leave the house and it's fabulous gardens, however if you did fancy a drive to the local towns and beaches they are no distance. This was a fantastic holiday and we couldn't of chosen a better house to stay in!

a place you will want to go back to

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in lLa Mariposa, from

Mid until end of September.

The villa is full of character, tastefully decorated and providing everything you need for a perfect holiday. The swimming pool is fenced, being separated from the main garden. This makes it considerably safer for young children.

We loved the mature gardens,with beautiful flowers, pomegranate, olives and lemon trees. The surrounding area is private and tranquil.

La Mariposa is 15 min drive from lovely beaches in Denia and Javea. Both towns have charming old areas and plenty of shops and restaurants. Benidorm , with many options for children entertainment , is less then 40 min drive away.

The owner of La Mariposa thought of everything : there are books, DVDs and games for all ages.For those who find the internet vital during a holiday, 3G works really well. We used the maps on iphone for getting around on back rounds in the countryside, there is no need for satnav.

We had a great relaxing holiday and fell in love with La Mariposa. We really hope to return one day.

Dit huis is een echte aanrader. Binnen heel veel ruimte en een fijne keuken om in te verblijven. Buiten is het geweldig. Heel veel verschillende zitjes, veel te doen voor de kinderen en een fijn zwembad. Een top huis!
