Large Villa with Private Pool



Updated: 13-Oct-2016
Villa near Gandia, Costa del Azahar, Spain - Peaceful Location with Fabulous Views

Secluded and private, this lovely villa benefits from being only some 20 minutes from the vibrant town of Gandia and its excellent blue flagged beaches. The villages nearby are noted for their friendliness and welcoming attitude to foreigners, who are still in a tiny minority. This is an area perfect for those seeking tranquillity and peace within a beautiful and convenient part of Spain which has yet to be exploited. The quiet area extends along the newly improved Albaida road, with ancient villages and towns set in rural countryside. The gently rolling Albaida plain is surrounded by hills which provide a wonderful drama to the landscape. The villa overlooks orange, lemon and almond groves, which together with the fabulous sunsets help create it an unforgettable holiday.

“Great villa, fantastic views”

“Great accommodation, very comfortable and relaxing.”

“Will be back with more of us next time, Villa Las Palmeras by the pool having a BBQ, in the Naya, what more could you ask.”

“Every villa I have rented in the past has its letdowns. Villa Las Palmeras doesn’t have any.”

“Superb accommodation, lovely views, relaxing and comfortable. The pool is a magnet for small children. This is an excellent venue for a family holiday.”

“Everything about the villa was just perfect”

“The BBQ allowed us to enjoy long relaxing evenings in the naya, enjoying the wonderful sunsets.”

“Little things like all the DVDs, toys, the well equipped kitchen, as well as the amazing pool, lovely rooms and breathtaking views, have all added up to make this a dream family holiday.”

“We both fell in love with the beautiful villa and far reaching views from the first day. The naya provided us with a peaceful and comfortable escape from the heat. paradise"

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa was lovely, in lovely peaceful surroundings, it was spacious, homely and very well equipped, even though we were there for just a few days we loved eating and relaxing in the Naya, lovely outside space and the pool was great, (even though it was a bit cold but that was just due to the time of year), enjoyed watching the squirrels in the mornings, had a lovely meal at Restaurante Tolero in Gandia where the waiter provided English menus, even though he said "he was the menu"! We enjoyed our visit to Gandia beach, where there were lots of shops and a market which seemed to sell a lot of leather handbags!

As there were 6 adults we hired a 7 seater car from a company called Drivalia which was hassle free.

We had a great time and would definitely return in the future.

Our very enjoyable stay at Las Palmeras

  • 4 of 5

What made our stay so enjoyable?

The outside space was perfect. My husband doesn't swim very often but the superb internet and areas for relaxation and shade ensured he was happy. The two year old and four year old had room to wander within the secure garden. We all enjoyed trying out the fruit from the fig tree and vines. The swimming pool is a great design for young children and adults. Step number one provided the space for the two year old to 'swim' alone and step number two worked equally well for the four year old. All the adults spent lots of time in and around the pool and we ate all our meals in the naya area. We loved watching the local wildlife including the red squirrels, flycatchers and long tailed tits. The dark sky at night was fantastic we will never forget the meteors. The managers of the property were very welcoming and made sure we were happy and comfortable throughout our stay. It is so reassuring to know that someone will respond quickly to any problem or query that you may have. The position of the property, close to a network of roads that allow for easy access to Gandia, Alcoy and Valencia, allowed for good shopping and days out. (Thank you G for your advice on the train from Xeraco to Valencia for our Oceanographic visit.) My husband and I loved a local walk into the lovely hills surrounding the villa and local town. We all slept very well (using the air conditioning some evenings) and felt happy and relaxed and sorry to leave at the end of our stay.

Fantastic Family Villa in quite location in Spain

  • 5 of 5

A lovely family holiday in a well equipped villa with surrounding views of fields and mountains, a 20 minute drive to a long stretched sandy beech. The villa has lots of out door space to play ball and pool games, with a great BBQ area and large garage with pool toys and beech cool boxes and umbrealla's. Its in a very Spanish area, with lots of quaint villages and small towns to explore so you can see REAL Spain and Spainsh people living their lives. Our family collected daily water from a natural spring in the village which we walked to and swam in the large village community pool. We discovered a fantastic local Pizzeria and Tapas bar, we 'just' got through speaking very little Spanish which shows not many English tourists visit this part of Spain. Details in the villa book.

We enjoyed BBQ's most evenings but found a great restaurant in Barx called PuigMola which stood among the olive groves and served amazing paella amongest other choices. The best part it has a lovely outdoor pool which the families can use all day.

A super family holiday.

Fabulous Villa in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a memorable week at this outstanding location. The villa itself is well maintained , clean and well appointed. It is also very spacious and could easily accommodate 10 people. We were given a warm welcome from the next door neighbours who look after the property and the welcome pack was just that - very welcome after a tiring journey.We could happily have spent the whole week lazing by the pool but made the effort to visit the local resort of Gandia and it was well worth the effort as it is a very Spanish , very interesting town.

Can't wait to go back later in the year..

Perfect villa for a climbing party

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villa, great location with easy access to all the local crags. Friendly and courteous owners and local contact in Terrateig very helpful. Wood burner was great and needed in the winter evenings and all facilities were in good working order.

Alicante airport 70 mins drive, Valencia airport 60 mins drive, both linked by fast motorway (A7). Car hire is essential, although with the new metro into Valencia from the airport it is easy to catch a train to Gandia (runs every 30 mins) where we can either arrange for your collection or you can grab a taxi to the villa.


The Safor Mountains behind Gandia boast small rustic villages such as Terrateig, Castello de Rugat, Benecolet and Marquqera which are well loved by walkers and cyclists. Fishing and horse-riding are also available locally. Terra Mitica Theme Park ,with large rides, a water park and bird park, all lie behind the large resort of Benidorm, approx 60 mins from the villa

Further Details:

Our villa is perfect for those on holiday wishing to explore the beautiful Costa Del Azahar or just relax by the pool and enjoy the wonderful views. 20 mins to Gandia town with plenty of shops and eateries. A tree lined walkway (paseo) runs through the centre of Gandia's main street, with cafes for refreshments and a rest in the leafy shade, as well as plenty of clothes, leather goods, jewellery shops. For the sporty there is a large marina, the yacht club and the large beach offer all types of aquatic pursuits. Apart from its unspoilt golden sands and crystal clear waters, the Valencia province is famous for its fiestas, and celebrates elaborate street parades to the full in most towns and villages, all of which in a firework display, and can be experienced throughout the summer months.
