About Jill

In 2003 we decided we would like to buy a property somewhere warm and beside the Mediterranean. We decided that the Costa Blanca was the best place due to its climate where you can even sit and eat outside in January and February. We travelled around but couldn't find anywhere that ' did' it for us. We knew that we were definitely not looking for England in Spain!

As we traveled around I saw a sign which said Port and Marina. We had no idea where we where but I said to Peter take that road!!!! As we turned on to the prom and saw the Old Town with its lovely coloured houses beside the sea we both looked at each other and said ' this is it it!' It was definitely love at first sight and nothing has changed nearly thirteen years later. We bought the third house we saw and when we walked into the house we had no doubts that it was the house for us. The estate agent was amazed at the speed we made our decision and said, 'don't you want to go home and think about it.?' Fortunately we have never regretted our decision and buying this house certainly improved the quality of our family's life!

Villajoyosa is such a special place it comfortably mixes old and new Spain with charm and ease. It is not just a tourist resort, it is first and foremost a Spanish town where the Spanish live the people are so warm, friendly and happy and are very welcoming to visitors.

Jill purchased this house in 2003

Why Jill chose Villajoyosa

Having visited areas south of Alicante with flat landscape and little to do in the area we made a list of what we wanted. When we looked round this house we all agreed that we had found what we had been looking for. A spacious house with no-one above or below to make a noise, sea views, two outside terraces. 2 mins walk to a beautiful uncrowded sandy beach where even at the height of summer you don't feel like sardines in a tin. You can stroll to a good range of local bars restaurants and shops. You can hop on a train 5 mins walk away to take you to Alicante or the rest of the Costa Blanca Coastal Resorts and a wide range of attractions theme/ water parks etc. Fantastic coastal and mountain scenery with amazing walks. All this and a real sense of traditional unspoilt Spain too! Perfect!

What makes this house unique

Newly refurbished in Jan2017. This is a full house one of the original houses of Villajoyosa where the fisherman lived although it now has all mod cons needed for modern living! With two outside terraces and lots of space inside it enables you to relax and enjoy your holiday. Friends and guest say that when they walk in the front door they feel themselves relax. You can sunbathe on the roof terrace or sit quietly on the kitchen terrace watching the world go by and with views of the sea it is a lovely place to relax listen to music or read a good book. The roof terrace is a great place to enjoy a glass of sangria while looking at the sea and the mountains enjoying the peace and tranquility. The house is well equipped to cook in with a slow cooker come back from the beach to your meal ready for you! We have full wifi internet with good speed, some can be very slow!! We also have British TV for those who enjoy relaxing at home after a busy day.

It is great fun looking at the history of the houses and imagining how the houses used to be used. The ground floor used to be used for donkeys! I believe that helped to heat the house in Winter! We now don't need the donkeys as on the ground floor we have a lovely fireplace which is used, very rarely, in the winter if it is cold. The way the fireplace has been built it acts as a radiator throughout the house!

Lovely house enjoyed our stay great location

  • 5 of 5

The house has just undergone a total refurbishment and everything was new, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location of the house was perfect for us in a lovely part of the Old Town.

We enjoyed relaxing on the roof terrace and reading our books. The views from the terrace were wonderful. We also enjoyed sitting on the kitchen terrace and watch the activity in the street below.

We really liked the fact that there were lots of restaurants and bars to choose from which were open. We have been to other places at this time of the year and most places were closed! We particularly enjoyed strolling down to the beach and walking along the lovely seafront and stopping for a d ink and tapas! Great choice and very reasonably priced.

We were pleasantly surprised at how lovely the weather was at this time of year and we would efinitely return and recommend!

Owner's Response: I am glad you liked our house. We have put a lot of work in to refurbish it from top to bottom! I understand your comments about Villajoyosa 'being open' in the winter I visited Marbella in October and was surprised at so many places closed for the winter. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future and recommend that you try the amazing VIlajoyosa Fiesta in July.

Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

The Moors and Christians Fiesta takes place the last week of July. This is an event of international touristic significance. The town transforms into a set from a Moors and Christians Pageant and you can observe or take part in the events free of charge. The climax of the fiesta is a sea bourne invasion which takes place as dawn rises. Spectacular! At the end of the week there are fireworks and celebrations. This is a don't miss event!


The beautiful uncrowded 'Centro' sandy beach is just 2 mins walk away. As Villajoyosa has not been discovered by mass tourism you can relax on the beach without having some one's feet in your face!

There are pedaloes and sunbeds for hire in high season.

There are also a range of other beaches either a walk or a drive away including secluded coves rocky beaches. There is also a naturist beach on a quiet secluded beach 15 mins drive away! Something for every taste.


The nearest airport is Alicante. This is about 30 minutes away by car. There is also a bus/ train which connects the airport with the town. The train station is a five minute walk from the house.

A car is not required as the train is frequent and inexpensive and links Villajoyosa with the rest of the Costa Blanca. If you want to head inland and go into the mountains a car is necessary.


The house is within easy reach of Benidorm approx 10kms and the picturesque village of Altea (12kms). The city of Alicante (40 kms)is easily reached by the train and is a vibrant lively place to visit. Inland you can visit a magnificent country park with amazing waterfalls and lakes Fonts D'Algar. Here you can dive off boards off the cliffs and swim in the crystal cold fresh water of this park, perfect for a hot summers day.

The mountain village of Guadalest is must to see.

Further Details:

The house is within easy walking distance of a range of local supermarkets and both indoor and outdoor markets. This means that you can buy fresh local produce easily.

There are a range of local restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets.

Villajoyosa lies at the foothills of the Sierra Aittana mountains and is perfect for walking and outdoor holidays.
