About the property

Villa in Calpe, Costa Blanca - Very Quiet and not overlooked only 5 minutes Walk to the Beach

This year we are Travelling in Europe during the summer months and therefore offer to let our home to selected guests during this period. The main features of the villa are the beautiful pool and garden, which is surrounded by trees and completely private. The guest accommodation is luxurious and has nice views from the bedrooms and the lounge over the garden to the mountains. We also have our little wooded area where you can sling the hammock, relax in the shade and listen to the birds and the waterfall as it cascades into the fish pond.

Situated in a cul de sac on the outskirts of town it takes only a couple of minutes to walk to the nearest restaurants, 5 minutes to the beach and two large supermarkets. Calpe town is about 5 minutes drive. There is a sauna which you are welcome to use if you feel the need - we provide separate shower and toilet facilities. Also extra towels and beach robes are available. We have a gardener, pool cleaner and recently upgraded and installed air-conditioning.

Please note we changeover on Wednesday's.

About Mike Smith or Michelle Sutton

My wife and I have lived in Spain for many years and love it here, we are now retired but like to keep busy. We also enjoy sailing and travelling and spend much of the summer either sailing in Greece or touring Europe with our Caravan.

When we are not at home we like to offer our guests the use of our property.

Why Mike Smith or Michelle Sutton chose Altea Area

We designed and built this villa, having had the experience of two previous homes in Spain. We love it here, close to town and the beach yet away from the summer crowds and noise. It is a big house spread over two 1,000 m2 plots, which makes it quite exceptional for the area.

We have a beautiful lawn, (for Spain which takes a lot of water but we think it is worth it), and a big swimming pool. We also ensured that there is plenty of shade which is essential in the summer. When the sun is hot we either take our sunbeds under the shade of the trees or move into the Naya where we have overhead fans if required..

Happily our guests all seem to like it here - they come back year after year. If you want to share our beautiful villa then early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.

What makes this villa unique

You will enjoy total privacy in a safe and secure villa, lots of out door space with shade if you need it. It also has the advantage of being really very close to three pretty decent restaurants - all within a couple of minutes walk. The beach is also quite within walking distance, about ten minutes.

You can book our villa for the Summer, early Spring or late Autumn.

Our previous guest reviews have been excellent - please check these out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The pool and garden area far exceeded our expectations. The setting is quite lovely and completely secluded. Sun is available all day in the garden for the sunworshippers (my wife!) and the naya provides a peaceful and comfortable shaded area. Calpe beach and plenty of bars and restaurants are a 15 minute walk away but the villa is so lovely it is hard leave. I would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return again."

"The pool and garden were excellent and the bar area provides seating in shade from the sun when required. Good communication from the owners re. our arrival."

"We were all delighted with the facilities at this property, the pool, the bar, the garden and the accommodation were all first rate. My children especially enjoyed the pool and secluded garden."

"The property exceeded all our expectations. It was immaculate and the accommodation and surroundings were perfect for a family holiday. We also received excellent communication from the owners."

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa is incredible and in a great location. The garden, pool and outside living areas are as good as it get's. Calpe is a great place with so many different things to do. Unfortunately we were bitten to pieces by mosquitos for most of the week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. Regarding the mosquitoes, we understand the problem and we are trying to minimise the effect of these pests.Unfortunately this year Calpe and the surrounding area have been infected by the asian tiger mosquitoe, which is smaller than the regular mosquitoe we knew in previous years. The bite of the Asian tiger mosquito is not particularly irritating to most people, but they are persistent biters. Because they breed in nearly any sort of water-filled container, they have become very common and bothersome, even in neighborhoods like ours where there are normally few mosquitoes. This winter we plan to fill in the fish pond and turn it into a rockery, we are also looking at ways to prevent breeding in and around the plant pots. The town hall of Calpe is taken measures to irradicate them. Rest assured we will do all we can to get rid of the asian tiger mosquitoe from our property.

Excellent villa with very private grounds and one of the best swimming pools we've seen.

  • 4 of 5

Excellently sized and beautifully maintained pool, lovely gardens with a fine fig tree, good seating and lying chairs, convenient for local facilities and only a few minutes walk to the sea front. Very, very private grounds, not overlooked and no traffic nor Neighbour noise. Air con very effective. Mattresses on both double beds weren't great. Kitchen facilities OK but looking a little tired. Local Indian restaurant within 200m is pretty good, and the local bar is a thriving and popular establishment.

Unfortunately, the worst problem that we had was with the local Asian Tiger mosquitos - clearly the presence of these extremely irritating pests is not the villa owners fault, however, I would question whether keeping the well established pond in the garden is a great idea when all the published advice is to eradicate all local sources of still and stagnant water as these daytime flying and biting pests don't travel more than 200m from their breeding ground during their lifetime. Some people might be immune to them, but unfortunately for us, the mosquitos made it virtually impossible to sit in the lovely shady areas of the house and garden during daylight hours without being bitten to death.

Not all of the villa shown in the photos is accessible to visitors, a decent portion of the property being locked up for the owners own private use, but there is still more than enough space both indoors and outdoors for a party of four to live perfectly comfortably.

One other point; we only used a local taxi once, and then only for a very short journey on account of my wife struggling to walk, but if Euros 11 for a 1km ride up from the sea front was a representative charge, I wouldn't use a taxi if I could help it.

Luxurious villa, stunning garden and pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday and can't rave enough about this gorgeous villa. It was tranquil, pristine, everything we needed, with a huge, beautiful, immaculate garden, and a large pool that was essential for a swim in the August heat. It was perfect for me, my husband and 9 year old son, but would equally be perfect for 2 couples. We stayed in the pool and garden until about 7.00 pm every evening as we didn't want to leave! The local restaurants had great food and wine and can walk a little further for more choice. The local small German supermarket has everything you need for breakfast and lunch, but you'd need to go first thing in the morning for fresh bread and croissants.

Mike was invaluable and on constant hand by email to answer any of my little queries.

One week really wasn't long enough!

Great villa in super location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week at Villa, every thing you could need was there.

The owners are lovely people and were very helpful before are stay.

No maid,pool cleaners or gardeners to worry about for the whole week which was great as we could just relax and chill out with out

being disturbed.

Easy stroll to shops and beach and local restaurants just around the corner if you fancy a quick bite.

All in all a very nice week and we will be back for more!!

Absolutely lovely villa. All the facilities we could have asked for, bright, airy and clean. If coming back to this area of Spain would definitely look at staying here again.

Perfection. The photos do not do the property justice. Excellent location. The pool and the outside facilities are excellent. Looking to book again.

Notes on accommodation: The Villa is perfect for children, trees to climb, a nice pool a couple of swings and a basket ball net. There is lots of space for them to play ball on the lawn and generally have fun. Outside: The pool is very large for a private villa, 14m x 6m shaped in a kidney form. It does not use the traditional chlorine but instead has the latest salt system which prevents red eyes and green hair. The deep end is about 2 metres and the shallow end is about 1 metre, with a number of steps which are very convenient and great for young children to help gain confidence in the water. Utility Room: The utility room is used by the maid. There is an additional washing machine in the second bathroom the guests to use. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bathing towels and bath towels are provided and changed weekly along with the bed linen, etc. Our gardener and maid comes every Wednesday to clean and to make the change over preparations if applicable. Other: We live outside in the Summer and a great feature is the Naya where we have a shady dining area and lounging area. We also have a proper bbq with dining table and a covered bar with bottle cooler, music system etc.
