Farmhouse With Private Pool And Stunning Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Sep-2016
Farmhouse in Rotova, near Gandia and Oliva, Costa del Azahar - Peaceful Village Location, 15 Minutes From A Range Of Beaches

This is a large traditional Spanish farmhouse located on the edge of the village of Rotova. It enjoys great views over Rotova, the orange groves and the valley that leads down to the cosmopolitan town of Gandia. The front door leads onto a characterful courtyard which borders the cassita, probably one of the oldest stone buildings in the area. The courtyard opens onto the mature garden with orange, lemon, olive and palm trees surrounding your own private pool. Off street parking is available for five cars. Downstairs the modern interior houses the lounge/diner, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Upstairs has a further three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is British satellite TV, Spanish TV and WiFi broadband internet. Our location offers you a taste of the real Spain but without being isolated. You can easily have a fantastic holiday without leaving Rotova and the local bus can take you into Gandia where you can catch fast trains onto Valencia, Barcelona or Madrid. But a hire car undoubtedly opens up further options such as the more secluded beaches, quaint villages and, of course, Benidorm! Very few locals speak English but they are all very friendly and willing to help. And not being in a Brits Abroad location has many advantages, not least the cheap prices in the bars!

About the Owner

I live in England with my wife Karen where we run an outside catering company and a canal-side pub. We've been married for well over 20 years and have two border collies. We work seven days a week from spring to autumn and so have always dreamt of having a place abroad to escape to now and again where we can recharge the batteries. We were lucky enough to fight off fierce competition to buy this finca in 2009 which we believe offers an idyllic holiday location for everyone.

From the Owner

This area, although not really discovered by mass tourism, has very many attributes. First of all it is mid way between Valencia and Alicante airports (just over an hours drive to each) making it easily accessible with cheap flights. Then you are nestled among orange groves with a ten minute drive to amenities of Gandia or Oliva and a 15 minute drive to stunning beaches. If you desire some madness then Benidorm is a 40 minute drive, and for clubbers, the short ferry to Ibiza is only a 30 minute drive away. The region is unspoilt Spain; food and drink prices are refreshingly low, and the finca is on the edge of a lovely village with all your essentials just a five minute stroll down the lane.

Special interest holidays:

Our neighbour at Rotova is a renowned horse rider and trainer, specialising in Spanish dressage. Along with his wife, he can offer rider training for any level of experience and specialises in teaching children to ride for the first time. So if you love horses, some tuition in his idyllic stables and surrounding countryside may be just for you. This is a unique opportunity that is exclusive to residents of our finca. They both speak English.

The area has many well signposted walks of varying distances taking you through very picturesque scenery. It is also a very popular mountain biking area.

Coast/Beach:

It is only a 15 minute drive to the impressive Blue Flag beaches with their golden sand gently incline into the sea. They stretch along the shoreline for some thirteen kilometres and have an impressive range of medical stations, lifeguards and, in the summer, beach cafés.

Apart from the more widely recognised water sports, also available in Gandia is kite surfing, paddle surfing, wake surfing, canoeing and sailing instruction.

Travel:

We are well placed between two major airports (Alicante – 65 miles to the south, and Valencia – 40 miles to the north).

Excellent roads connect Gandia to the north and south of Spain via the A7 motorway and a very efficient and cheap train service is available from Gandia to Valencia, making train connections to Valencia airport a viable option. A local bus service can transfer you from Gandia to Rotova. However car hire is reasonable but not essential.

Distances:

The centre of Rotova is just a 5 minute stroll down the lane giving you bakers, a butcher, three mini supermarkets, bank with cash machine, three bars/restaurants and a tourist information. Gandia with all its cosmopolitan bars, restaurants and shops, as well as major facilities including a very large large Carrefour, is a 10 minutes drive. Oliva with its fantastic old town is around 15 minutes drive. There are many quaint villages and excellent restaurants close by.

Further Details:

This area has a long tradition of fiestas within a vibrant culture that remains undiluted by the devastating effects of mass tourism elsewhere. A strong community spirit is apparent within a tolerant, good humoured and kindly local population whose children still play freely and safely in the roads and squares with crime and aggression low. The traditional siesta remains with shops and offices religiously closing between 2pm to 4pm irrespective of the time of the year. Most shops also close on a Sunday.Valencia city is, of course, internationally renowned for its sporting, cultural and commercial prowess. A wonderful, historic city with fabulous shopping and breathtaking architecture. Only 45 minutes drive from Gandia it is accessed with great ease. For some real nightlife or some of Europe's best theme parks, Benidorm is just 45 minutes drive and the ferry to Ibiza from Denia is a short 25 minute drive. This is the real, relaxed Spain and so very few locals speak English so be prepared to have fun in practicing your Spanish!
