About Carl Taylor

My wife Clare and I bought Casa Montana back in 2003 and completely fell in love with Bocairent and it's wonderful people. We really feel passionate about Bocairent and Spain in general. Bocairent has amazing food, wine and really lovely people. If you give Bocairent a go, you won't be dissapointed. Look forward to welcoming you to Casa Montana. Carl & Clare

What makes this house unique

The benefits of staying at Casa Montana have to be the space that all the family can enjoy. You also have an amazing birds eye view of any fiesta parades that go in the village as they pass right our front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I had a wonderful 10 days in Casa Montana. We spent most early evenings in the town square watching the world go by with our obligatory glass of wine.The house is beautifully restored, very grand, with every possible amenity available. The beds extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with the adjoining terrace being the perfect place for breakfast. Thank you Carl & Clare for allowing us the privilege of using your home. It is a holiday we will never forget. Jenny Knutsford - Cheshire



My wife & I with our 2 young children stayed at Casa Montana for 2 weeks. What a wonderful charming house which has everything you could possibly need. The village of Bocairent is absolutely stunning with fantastic restaurants, bars and all amenities on your doorstep. The communal pool was great for the kids to enjoy and the beach is only a 40 minute drive. Anto Variku – Estonia

A wonderful house in a Spanish haven

  • 5 of 5

The most important thing for me is that when choosing a place to stay for the family is not that it not only meets expectations but it exceeds them ; Casa Montana did that for us on our recent stay.

The house is beautifully maintained and has great character with absolutely all the space and facilities to have an amazing holiday.

The service from Carl at all points has been first class, and his passion and knowledge for both the house and Bocairent helped us have a truly authentic and wonderful holiday in the 'Real Spain'.

We look forward to returning in the future.

A well appointed and fantastic period property

  • 5 of 5

We flew to Madrid and the drove to the property in around 4 hours. With two young children we wanted to ensure the children were happy and safe. The children loved the house and we quickly found the local swimming pool. Eating out is relatively cheap (Hotel L'Estacio is highly recommended) and we enjoyed days out at the local market and also travelled by train to Valencia to visit Oceanographic and to watch the dolphin show. I would definitely recommend this property and would hope to visit again. It has a beautiful interior and the owners have really gone out of their way to present a fabulously decorated property. Whilst there is no Wifi you can walk to the hotel a few doors away to check on emails etc if you feel the need.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property, beautiful kept and very traditionally Spanish. The room we had was exquisite and absolutely huge! Each room that we saw had large en suite facilities and the kitchen area was excellent, very well catered for. We were looked after VERY well. Really can't say any more other than have no hesitation in recommending this as a holiday destination. Lovely area, very quiet.

a real taste of pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to the little village which was colourfull and lightfull, and we were received by a very nice lady who welcomed and guided us throughout the house and explained about the village. The house is amazing, built with 3 floors, many rooms (each of them with it own bathroom) and a great basement with bar and a pool table!.

If you are looking for a quite holiday, in a confortable house, and the possibility to ride the bike in a picturesque countryside, this is your choice!

Casa Montana was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 13 nights with three if our children. Everything was fantastic. From the standard of accommodation to the welcome from Marta and her helpfulness if we needed her during the stay. Usually choosing who sleeps where is controversial but as all the rooms were large clean and attractive there were no fights-hooray! Lots of bathrooms which is great with lots if people and the children loved playing pool. Talking of pools we were unsure about renting somewhere without one but we needn't have been. The village pool was large clean and 5 mins drive from the house. The superstar of the location is rock pools straight from a TV advert, they were 10 mins drive and we spent a lot if time there. I miss them!! Far superior to sharing a beach with thousands of sweaty Brits! ;) Carl the owner was super efficient from start to finish. Oh and the price was amazing for the quality on offer! As easy jet and Ryanair fly to airports an hour away it made for an affordable holiday-just what the dr ordered! Other highlights are the sweet smelling bakery right next door and good sized supermarkets within reach. We had day trips to Valencia and Benidorm both of which have lots of attractions to break things up a bit! The locals were very friendly too! Our youngest was 6 which was fine but due to the stairs I think it would be difficult with toddlers. But then going anywhere is difficult with toddlers! :)

Were thrilled to hear that you had a great time and you received a warm welcome from our house manager Marta, she really is a gem with a wealth of local knowledge of Bocairent and the surrounding areas.

It's defintely the "Real Spain" Look forward to welcoming you to Casa Montana again. Thanks Carl

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Alicante at 52 Miles Nearest Beach : Gandia at 40 Miles Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

The stunning beaches of Gandia and Oliva are only a 40 minute drive from Bocairent and are really spectacular. This is where the Spanish go on holiday so you will be getting the 'Real Spain'. There are some lovely little bars and restaurants of which most are open all year. Why not enjoy some fantastic seafood or tapas at the Marina and watch the world go by with a glass of Valencia wine.

Travel:

We are located approximately 90 km drive from Alicante airport (to the north) and 100 km from Valencia airport (south). Car hire is recommended as we are situated within the Sierra Mariola mountains. Car hire is readily available at both airports.

We can arrange a pick up and drop off service by our management team (please ask for prices)

Distances:

Ontinyent town is 15 minutes by car. This is a large town with many great restaurants/bars and a cinema & shopping complex. The lovely town of Gandia is around a 45 minute drive from Bocairent. The stunning city of Valencia is around an hour's drive, alternatively you can take the train from Xativa to Valencia which takes about 45 minutes. Guadalest is a beautiful town to visit, full of history and quirky funky independent shops.

Further Details:

The Costa Blanca area is famous for its healthy and sunny climate making it a great all year around destination. Bocairent is situated within the Sierra Mariola mountains, inland Valencia, famous for its orange and lemon groves. The surrounding area offers some great walking, hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking. There are also many other historic towns to explore nearby - for example the university town of Alcoy and the amazing village of Guadalest, built entirely into a mountain.

Bocairent is packed with history. You can walk through the old town with its narrow cobbled streets, small squares and fountains and get a feel for what it was like hundreds of years ago. The unique bullring carved into the rock is the oldest in Valencia, dating back to 1843. There are two museums, the Archaeological Museum which has pieces from the Sarsa Cave, one of the most important Neolithic sites in the Mediterranean and the Moor and Christian Museum which gives you an insight into their history.

There are celebrations almost every month in Bocairent but the main fiestas are -

* January 'The Coming of the Three Kings',

* February the 'Moors and Christians' (renowned for being one of the best in the region) August is the 'Dances'.

For those wanting a bit of pizzazz, fear not! Were only 60 minutes away from Valencia the third largest city in Spain. The Fallas celebrations in March, with their large paper mache floats and fireworks shows, are among the most spectacular in Spain, while the City of Arts and Science offers museums and architecture by Santiago Calatrava. Valencia City was the first European host of the Americas Cup - sailings premier world event. Valencia often hosts major sporting events such as the European Grand Prix. Therefore Bocairent is the ideal base to explore Valencia and all it has to offer and then come back to relax in the tranquil surroundings of Bocairent.
