About Denise Hudson

Hi, I have looked after this villa for fifteen years for the previous and current owners. They live in the UK and this is their holiday home so I know this property very well, I have met some amazing people over the years, this is a part of the job that I enjoy immensely, ensuring that everyone has a great holiday.

Why Denise Hudson chose Alberes

As a family holiday villa it is perfect. Six bedrooms and four bathrooms so lots of space for a large group.Also a wonderful kids dorm that offers toys, books and games, this always goes down well with the little ones. Outside space is spacious lots of different areas to chill out so that everyone gets their own space.

What makes this villa unique

Situated walking distance to two villages so a brilliant choice of bars, local shops and restaurants all on foot. Fabulous ganes room with table tennis and dartboard and a large flat screen TV for the kids to watch their own DVD's.

Fantastic property for group/family

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you need to have a relaxed stress free holiday. We were 10 adults and had all the space and equipment we needed. The weather was hot, the pool was well used. Plenty of chairs and tables. Very interesting area to explore. We popped to local beaches, vineyards and even over the border to Spain.We will be back. The Evans party.

A splendid, large villa in an ideal setting

  • 5 of 5

As expected, our party of 9 adults had a fabulous week. With 30C+ days the large pool was ideal, offering various inflatables and a pump.

The house was large, clean and well maintained, and Denise was more than helpful. We’ll certainly be recommending this experience.

As well as the local villages and coast, we enjoyed:

• The nearby tortoise valley

• Jetskiing at St Cyprien

• Canyoning water park, minigolf and high ropes at Argeles

• Sea kayaking with Blue Bear

We ate out 5 times, and felt spoilt for choice on local and coastal restaurants.

Superb villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely week with all our family in this super villa.It lived up to all our expectations and everything was of a high standard.The villa was clean and well maintained with adequate space for 11of us.

Great use was made of good sized pool and games room. The location was excellent with the lovely villages of Sorede and La Roque easily accessible and good beaches 15 minutes away. Denise was very helpful and ensured everything was to our satisfaction.

High quality villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in the house and we were really pleased with the overall quality. Nothing missing, very nice pool with lots of sun beds and play stuff, well assorted kitchen for two families, nice terraces, aircon in all rooms, table tennis, plenty of towels and linen, relatively close to center of Sorede which has a very cozy town center. We felt very safe in the hands of Denise organizing the practical issues including money transfer not to forget Stephen the pool guy who came 3 times in our 10 days stay to clean the pool. Thank you for organizing and send our best regards and thanks to the owners :-)

Just returned from 2 weeks away. The property was perfect for our party of 6 adults and 6 children and very well equiped. The beautiful location allowed a few rides, runs and walks by various members of the party. The house was clean and perfectly prepared by Denise and the pool a good size.
