About the Owner
My family all love Spain for the hot sunny climate and the excellent food. Our house is situated in a 5 star closed community. It is very safe and family friendly. Your stay here can be as fun, active, cultural or as relaxing as you like. We tend to go for relaxing on holidays, apart from swimming & cycling & the kids love the aqua parks and the many markets. We also like to fly to Madrid, Valencia or Barcelona first for a bit of culture and then fly or drive to Alicante, which can be cheaper than the train.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to drop you a note before I get caught up with my ‘everyday life’.
We wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time in Spain and being based in your villa, was absolutely brilliant – it was the foundation as well as icing of our amazing family holiday. Everything worked & worked out fine, it was even more attractive and comfortable than the photo’s. After just a few days in we all found ourselves calling it home – how amazing is that!
Thank you again for accommodating us at such short notice and providing such a brilliant accommodation in a wonderful location…for us and our requirements it absolutely hit the spot.
From the Owner
“We chose this particular part of Spain because it is so easy to travel to. The climate here is perfect- hot and dry. It is fanned by the Levante wind which also makes the heat easier to bear. On the beaches you feel as though you really are in Spain as families from Madrid tend to holiday here in greater numbers because it is the closest coastal area to the Spanish capital. This means that you have a great choice of authentic Spanish restaurants. It also means that there are plenty of local 'Fiestas' to enjoy.”
