About the property

Two bedroom; one and a half bathrooms; baby camper cot upon request

You are sure to fall in love with this recently renovated, traditional Moorish, yet modern, apartment in the sought after Old Town of Villajoyosa! Live amongst the local people and have a true Spanish experience! Located on the fourth line from the beach (literally two minutes' walk!), you can relax with a BBQ on the roof terrace while marveling at the 180 degree ocean view. The apartment includes a meet-and-greet, 24hr property management services, UK satellite television, wifi, air-conditioning in both rooms as well as additional cleaning services (upon request). We also provide a hair dryer, beach towels, beach umbrellas as well as beach toys for the children.

Make sure to enjoy the Moors and Christians Festival, from 24-31 July. It is rated as one of the best in Spain and has been declared an International Tourist Interest. The highlight of the fiesta is the Disembarkation Battle on the Sea in the early hours on the morning of the 28th. It is a naval battle between the Moors and Christian fleets, after which the Moors jump into the ocean and swim to shore to conquer the castle, accompanied all the time by music and the firing of blunderbusses - truly an experience!

All tailored to ensure your 100% relaxed and effortless, home-away-from-home holiday in Spain!!

Check in is from 17:00 and check out is at 10:00. This is to ensure that there is sufficient time to professionally clean the apartment and have the linen changed etc. If this isn't convenient, we will try to accommodate your needs, if possible.

Villajoyosa is a very family orientated town and has a Blue Flag beach. The Old Town (where the property is situated) started out as a small fishing village. Today it still retains its old time charm, but with lots of bars and restaurants, all of which have free wifi for their patrons.

Very well equipped and positioned in the old town

  • 5 of 5

This is a traditional old fishing house split over 3 levels and has been beautifully restored with all modern comforts. Whilst still keeping many of the traditional features. As you enter the house you’ll be met with narrow steep stairs leading to the bedrooms, both are air conditioned for the hot summer months. The onsuite bathroom in the main bedroom features a wonderfull double shower room, powerful and easy to adjust. Perfect after a day at the beach. The other kids bedroom is perfectly squeezed onto the first floor with comfortable bunk beds. Could easily slept adults as well. Further up the stairs your greeted with a wonderfully decorated kitted main living/kitchen all over the second floor. From the sat tv to the solid cutlery pots and pans you’ll want for nothing. We particularly liked the gas cooker and coffee machine. You’ll get a real feeling of quality and thoutfullness whilst living a traditional Spanish style surrounded by locals who love to party and enjoy themselves. The best feature is yet to come, if you navigate up the steep wooden stairs you’ll ge greeted by 360 vistas again fully equipped with table, chairs, loungers, umbrella and a solid BBQ. Credit is due to the owners vision of providing a real Spanish experience. If this is not enough, the owners communication and the agents local knowledge of the area was second to none, they provided our every need with total pleasure. Once you have settled in you’ll find 3 perfect supermarkets dishing up food that never reaches the UK. You must try the local Lubina sea bass with some steamed vegetables. The beach is stunning and literally a stones through away. We walked to the marina and back a good few times. Along the way you’ll find quality reatraunts serving up quality food, with local beers. Within the old town there are little gems for shopping and tasting the local delicatessen. We discovered the local market which has a real buzz about the place and there is a traditional food takeaway that serves freach paella. The boys even let us take the pan home whist it was still sizzling. It does help the experience if you speak un poco. You must also try the local chocolate factory museum which is a free tour. Getting around the cost is easy as well no need for a car as they have a fantastic tram system which is 10 min walk from the house. It’s also very cheap. All in all a fantastic experience only blited slightly by the over enthusiastic locals who party with much gusto.

A lovely holiday house in an UNESCO site

  • 5 of 5

Super convenient - a stonethrow from one of the best beaches in Costa Blanca while just a few minutes walk from the tram station; in a very friendly and cosy community. Exactly the place my wife and i need for a layback holiday - away from the office emails (with the help of non-existence of wifi in the house - i do mean this is a credit). Piedad is helpful and can be reached almost at all times and Natasha always shows her warm hospitality by constantly texting us about our holiday. It is a no-brainer to book the same house when we have another holiday in La Villa Joyosa. Just simply joyful and lovely and unforgettable. Thank you very much, Piedad and Natasha.

Owner's Response: Dear Desmond Thank you for your review of our apartment - I am very happy to know that you and your wife had a lovely holiday! You are more than welcome to rent it again!! Kindest regards, Natasha ps: we have decided to have wifi installed...just for those who cannot seem to get away from the office emails, but utilizing it while on holiday is, of course, optional ;-) Hope you had a safe journey home!

Villjoyosa 2016

  • 4 of 5

We spent five days in the apartment, which was tidy and well equipped. As you can expect from a traditional Moorish building, stairs were narrow and steep - especially the stairs leading up to the rooftop terrace, which in return offered an amazing view. We were a bit surprised with the bedrooms setting, but again - that was a Moorish house-style charm.

The house was located in the Old Town of Villajoyosa among very lively and friendly local people - therefore expect some noise! The beach, bars and restaurants were only two minutes away. In the evenings we could smell chocolate in the air from the local chocolate factory. Both, the owner and property manager were in touch during our stay to make sure we were happy.

Fremragende lejlighed i det smukke autentiske gamle Vila Joiosa

  • 5 of 5

En skøn lejlighed - med snørklede trapper. Og en helt vidunderlig tagterrasse med den vildeste udsigt. Lejligheden ligger i den gamle smukke bydel af Vila Joiosa - og her er der liv og børnelatter hele dagen lang - og ro om natten. I dette gamle kvarter bor spanierne selv - og børnene leger og lever i gaderne. Helt vidunderligt, når man gerne vil mærke liv. Som en tjener sagde til os: Shhh fortæl ikke andre om dette vidunderlige sted - for så bliver det bare overrendt. Det er virkelig en perle. Vi kommer igen - helt sikkert. Skønt sted og: Tak til Piedad for professionel og varm modtagelse.

Schön gelegen, schöne Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 2-Jährigem Sohn dort:

Der Strand ist in Laufweite (auch für den Sohn), vor Ort nur Anliegerverkehr (vielleicht 10 Autos und 20 Vespas/Tag) das spanische Leben direkt vor der Tür (Altstadtlage, keine Touristenbettenburg), Ausstattung für Kleinkinder (Beistellbett, Kindersitz, Latz, Kinderbesteck) ist vorhanden und wurde freundlicherweise schon aufgebaut, mit der Tram nach Alicante (~8€ zum Flughafen) angebunden - super praktisch. Selbst im November kann man (Warmduscher ausgenomen) noch baden. Die umgebende Altstadt ist sehr beschaulich und nahezu Autofrei, also ideal für Kleinkindendteckungstouren - diverse Tiere sorgten für Kurzweil, Spielplatz war auch in Reichweite.

Die Wohnung ist auf drei Stockwerken (2x Schlafen/Bad, Wohnen/Küche/Klo, Terrasse mit Meerblick und viel Sonne), die Treppe leider etwas eng und nicht Kindergesichert. Die Küche ist ganz gut ausgestattet, verschiedene Pfannen und Backofen lassen einem Spielraum, direkt gegenüber kann man günstig Trinkwasser bekommen.

La vie Joyeuse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for two weeks. Living in Moorish house was a fantastic experience that makes us traveling in time. The view from the roof beatified our barbecue parties. The apartment is fully equipped.

The beach and restaurants are 1 minute away. We were agreeably surprised that the beach is not crowded as we were in august. When swimming in the see you have a beautiful colored view of the old town.

Big Thanks to the owner and property manager for their availability and advises along the stay.
