"Peregrinos" is a private villa with separate studio apartment (not let separately) in orange groves with panoramic views to the mountains in the distance. It has the advantage of being in the countryside but is only 8 minutes drive to the nearest beach in Denia and 2/3 minutes drive to the village of La Xara with its many shops, bars and restaurants. In addition to the sitting/dining room and TV room inside there is a spacious outside terrace with teak dining table, chairs, a wicker sofa and armchairs. There is direct access from the kitchen for shady daytime meals and summer barbecues in the landscaped front garden. The kitchen has recently been completely renovated. The studio apartment overlooks the pool area which is set in a walled garden, making it easy to close off from the drive and house area for child safety and privacy. The pool is 4 metres x 8 metres in a sunny courtyard with a timber framed pergola and a huge grapefruit tree giving shade. Another teak dining table, chairs and a moveable gas barbecue offer easy poolside dining. A table tennis table with bats and balls is available by the pool and tennis rackets for use at the local La Sella resort tennis courts are provided - stored in the front porch. To book lessons please call Wendy who speaks excellent English on (0034) 966456351.
We are a retired couple who live in the UK. Although we rent Peregrinos out during the summer months we spend time there ourselves at other times of the year.
Gill purchased this villa in 1985
We bought Peregrinos back in 1985 as a shared family holiday home when our children were younger and our parents joined us on holiday. It was a basic property but the layout, the position and the views sold it to us and we have worked to improve the house and garden over the years.
What really appealed to us, after a day on the beach or in town, Peregrinos offered an oasis of privacy and calm. With electric gates, a walled pool area and sunny and shady terraces, the whole family can spread out and relax in their own space.
Although Peregrinos is in a country setting it is close enough to the local village of La Xara and the bustling town of Denia to feel part of a Spanish community but with all the advantages of holiday facilities. Beaches, marinas, sports clubs and numerous bars and restaurants are all within an easy drive of the house.
Arrived in the dead of night due to the available flights, seamless instructions got us all there without a hitch.
Awoke to peaceful surroundings and glorious sunshine. Everything was as the owner had described, fully furnished kitchen with two large double fridge freezers. Lounge, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms all cleaned to a high standard and well equipped.
Outside, the enclosed pool area was well used by all, table tennis was a great addition. The pool was clean and ample for all our party, being deep enough for adults as well as adventurous children.
The covered area by the pool, provided a great way to tempt the kids out of the pool for lunch etc without them losing sight of the water. The front terrace was a welcome break from the pool. Breakfast time and evening meals sitting on this terrace were the perfect start and end to the day, the BBQ also gave a different option for evening meals.
The local town is close by and a trip to the local supermarket wasn't an onerous task.
This was our first time self catering and the apprehension was 'have we done the right thing'? We left Peregrines feeling happy, relaxed and making plans to return.
Our stay in this lovely villa was great.
We had complete privacy with a super pool and everything about the villa was great.
Clean, gorgeous inside and out.
Short of nothing provided by the owners who helped us immediately when we asked for anything.
Lots of parking space on the private drive with electric gates.
Good restaurants and bars locally plus supermarkets with 5 minutes drive.
Denis in 10 minutes was a great Spanish town and also Javea with great beaches.
We could not fault our holiday here and would go back again.
This property is amazing..... So much room, spotlessly clean and everything you need for a relaxing holiday.. Very comfortable with plenty of seating areas inside and out. The gardens are spectacular with plenty of room at the front side and back for the children to play and totally enclosed with electric gates and walls..... Fantastic sun trap! ☀️ Would highly recommend......
The villa far exceeded our expectations. We loved the fact that this was so obviously someone’s “ home “ - shelves stacked high with an abundance of books, a kitchen with every conceivable utensil and the villa generally packed with absolutely everything we could ever have needed . We did just about manage to drag ourselves away from the pool most days, but only after at least one table tennis match , to explore the surrounding area which is very Spanish - we didn’t hear another English voice all week ! The local beach is lovely and Denia which is only a stones throw away has some wonderful restaurants and shops ( when you’re not BBQing at the villa ) . We have already raved about it to friends and family and will definitely be back – a week wasn’t long enough !
Firstly if I had the money (which sadly I don't) I'd love to buy this villa - so you'll probably get the drift of what my review is going to be like.
Good location - certainly not of the beaten track however secluded enough that you can get away from it all if you so wish. To cap it off the villa is only a short hop, skip and a jump away from the train station and therefore you've got easy access to the main towns (such as Denia) if you want to move away from the villa.
Great pool and surroundings - plenty of space for sun bathing and more than adequate shelter should you wish to tear yourself away from the pool and sun.
Good news for families is that there always seems to be plenty of water beds, pool toys and sun loungers at the villa in addition to the table tennis table and cupboard full of games to keep the kids entertained. Also don't pack any books as the villa has a small library.
The villa isn't overlooked and therefore you have great sense of privacy - also given that it's gated you feel safe leaving the kids to play in a safe environment (the pool area is gated off so adding to the feel safe factor).
Whilst there's a dining table inside of the villa I'd be very surprised if you even use it as the outdoor dining area (ideally place next to the kitchen and near the portable BBQ) is our chosen area for dining (or sneaking a glass or two of wine).
So in conclusion - I do love this villa. We've already stayed there 3 times and each time i regret leaving the place.
After 2 weeks we were sad to leave this lovely home, we had all settled in so well, we felt we could have easily stayed the entire summer holidays! Peregrinos was the ideal holiday home - so spacious with so many different areas to sunbathe, to read, relax and soak up the atmosphere and then a lovely pool to cool down in. The space was perfect for the different generations in our party and the location great for exploring the local area. We look forward to returning!
