About the property

Villa in Balcon Al Mar, Javea, Costa Blanca. Registered with the Valencia government: VT-442308-A - Within Walking Distance of Coastal Paths - Short Drive to Coves and Beaches

The villa, nestling among the mature pines of an established area known as Balcon Al Mar (balcony to the sea), faces south and enjoys glimpses of the coast and distant mountains. Casa Olivera is a newly built Villa, spacious and thoughtfully planned. The main terrace overlooks the Mediterranean-style garden, and here you will find your own large, attractive, illuminated swimming pool. French windows lead from the main rooms onto a covered terrace which provides a spacious dining area and shade from the heat of the day. There is a gated, double car port.

About Bruce Pell

Bruce and Diana Pell discovered the beauty of the Javea area over 12 years ago. They liked it so much they had a villa built to their own design in 1994 at Balcon Al Mar. It is a modern, airy design, embodying traditional features and a lovely pool area. "Our clients regularly email us after their stay, saying how much they enjoyed the villa and the area, so we are sure you will have a great holiday," says Bruce

What makes this villa unique

The villa is so convenient for lovely coves, long beaches, mountains and plenty of leisure attractions plus a host of delightful bars and restaurants.

For those looking for a taste of Spanish city life, Alicante and Valencia are both easy to access.

Delightfully Designed Villa with Private Swimming Pool and Glimpses of the Coast
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Lovely, well thought-out home from home with fab pool and gardens.

  • 4 of 5

The house gets 5 stars - it's not modern luxury, but a well designed lovely home. The shaded terrace/naya is spacious and a delightful place to while-away the hours. The kitchen full of absolutely everything one could need. A charming light dinning area + spacious lounge. Little extras, such as being able to borrow a sunshade for the beach, mosquito netting on appropriate windows etc. made it a really comfortable stay. The owners have been helpful throughout and with the charming local beaches (a short drive) I would recommend it to anyone.

The location is the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars - whilst in a quite beautiful area with palms, pine trees and flowering shrubs everywhere, we found the local (walkable) restaurants a bit limiting. They are excellent, but the Dutch/German influence perhaps means menus seemed to be concentrating on full, large, meals rather than Spanish tapas or country cooking. There are many other restaurants within a 15/20 min. drive (probably less if not in the peak season), including tapas bars offering traditional fare in the port area of Java but we got a little tired of the driving(It was peak season so probably more traffic than most of the year).

Holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa on the last week in August. The villa is absolutely beautiful. Very clean with the pool being twice in the week we were there. Everything you need for a great energetic holiday or peace and quiet relaxing by the pool. My boys loved the pool and were constantly in and out with the inflatables provided or bats and balls. The area is a very nice place with a local English bar a couple of hundred yards away with quizzes and free pool on offer. A very friendly place. The owner of the villa is Bruce Pell who is very helpful and a pleasure to deal with,he sent a load of directions from the airport to the villa and we missed placed them,so we rung him up and he was more than happy to direct us pretty much all the way in. In all a great holiday and would definitely recommend anybody to stay there as we would surely be doing again. Thankyou Bruce

Within walking distance of superb coastal walks and a short drive to various small coves and sandy beaches at Javea, Denia and Moraira.


We are between Alicante and Valencia, which both have international airports and are both 1 hour and 20 mins drive.

Car hire is preferable and easily available from both airports.


Casa Olivera is 10 minutes drive to Javea, 15 minutes to both Moraira and Denia. The Jalon Valley and peaceful mountains where you can go in search of local crafts and local wine are a 30 minute drive away.

Further Details:

There are various eating places with fantastic views of the coast, a good quality supermarket, bars, restaurants, boules court and tennis courts all within walking distance.

Terra Mitica, the international theme park, and Mundomar (Seaworld) are a 40 minute drive away.

For the sports-minded there are plenty of facilities for sailing, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, tennis, go-karting and three nearby golf courses including the international La Sella club.
