About the property

Bungalow between Altea and La Nucia, Costa Blanca - Quiet Location - Listen To The Birds!

A car is essential. Meander down a quiet country lane through the orange groves and you have found Little Lair. It is very handy for various villages and the beach. If you wish "chill out" you will not find a more tranquil setting than here!! Set in nearly 3000m of mature gardens for you to enjoy. Altea, Alfaz del Pi and La Nucia are all within 10 minutes drive away. Terra Mitica (Theme park) and Terra Natura in Finestrat and Mundomar (dolphins and exotic birds), Aqualandia (water park) in Benidorm are all 15 minutes away. In Altea with its quaint narrow streets and lovely Church square there are lots of restaurants of all nationalities.Within half hour's drive you have some fine white villages well away from the tourist area. The waterfall at Algar is a joy in summer why not swim in the cold mountain water and under the waterfall. Many say the photos do not do justice to the actual bungalow-it's much better! Many of our visitors have returned again and again and said we have a little piece of paradise here!!!

About Hazel

My husband and I are originally from Yorkshire, we have lived in Spain since 1982. We retired in 2006 after selling our Auction House. We furnished the bungalow in 2009 and this was the first time it had been let, previously it had been used by friends. We have had some wonderful visitors many returning for 3rd and 4th visits. We are on hand in the adjoining property should you wish to know anything about where to visit, or shop or restaurants etc. We chose to buy our home and build Little Lair in this very quiet backwater in open countryside and yet only 10-15 minutes from Altea, La Nucia or Alfaz del Pi and various beaches. If you want peace and quiet you have found it here.

Hazel purchased this bungalow in 1986

Why Hazel chose La Marina Baja

We only allow 2 people to stay here - no children as there is only one large bedroom and we do not like a sofa being made into a bed for 2 more to stay!!

This is YOUR property for YOUR holiday, we do NOT intrude on your privacy at all. The swimming pool is for YOUR use only.

What makes this bungalow unique

In Little Lair you will have all your home comforts and more!!We always ask our visitors if we could provide anything else in Little Lair and all say it is very well fitted out for all their needs. We provide a free welcome pack of your choice, bread,butter,milk,wine,water, home made pate - if we have been baking or cooking there are often treats at no cost to you!!!

Most of our visitors have written in our visitors book with glowing reports but not filled in the review forms.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked to the moment we left our holiday the service given from Hazel (& Tony) was exemplary. Excellent directions given, accurate description of the location and facilities given. In fact the bungalow was a lot bigger than the photos depict. It was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The location was absolutely perfect for my husband and I. You definitely need a car to get around, but it's only a 5 minute drive into Altea/La Nucia, and this was perfect for us - we picked up a hire car from Alicante airport. The pool area was just a delight! We spent a lot of our 10 days relaxing by the pool or floating around on lilos reading books - such a lovely thing to do when you spend the rest of the year stressed with work! There is everything in the bungalow you could possibly need, including beach towels. I recommend going to the waterfalls (yes it's freezing cold but worth the refreshing feel afterwards - honest) and spending time in Altea old town (it's beautiful - white washed Spanish streets with quaint shops and restaurants) - oh how I wish to be back there now........ Hazel is a great source of information should you need it - very helpful indeed. We thorough enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Hazel & Tony.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

Lovely accommodation and surroundings and pleasant hosts. Were assured of peace and tranquillity before booking but holiday was marred by loud music from a nearby villa and pool noise from another.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Helen and John, Glad you enjoyed all we provided in Little Lair.The area is normally quiet but sound does travel out in the quiet countryside, we cannot say what other people do in there own properties when others let to holiday makers, it is their holidays and someone only has to laugh you can here it anywhere around, even though we are a long way from the other property(at the end of our large garden and 50-60yards to the left at the middle of their garden ( both our gardens are about 3,000 metres each) I thought the music was only on one afternoon and the voices at the pool again only one day? We try all we can to make sure our visitors enjoy Little Lair and our gardens but some things are out of our control. If you were satisfied with Little Lair and complaints on odd days I would have thought it warranted more than 2 star!!! Hazel and Tony

Fantastic relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

First time at Little Lair and loved it. Had a great 10 day break. We wanted a relaxing holiday but with amenities close by. Altea, Albia and Benidorm only a short drive away, which gave us all the shopping, eating and nightlife we wanted. It as also wonderful to be able to spread a night in, watching the sunset over the mountains and drinking wine. Hazel and Tony were great, if we needed anything, they were always on hand to ask and Hazels directions to nearby places, were spot on.

Will definitely return.

A Sanish Haven

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Little Lair this year. After a 7 year break. What a welcome from Hazel & Tony, we almost felt like family. The accommodation was just as good and comfortable with a number of improvements and updates. Set in a quiet location but yet convenient to so many of the Costa Blanca resorts and places of interest. We would recommend Little Lair and Tony's paella to anyone.
