About the property

Villa in Alicante - Peaceful Country Mountain Location, 10 Mins to Beach, 5 Mins To Town, 10 Mins To Airport

Situated in the foothills of Mount Maigmol behind Alicante this huge 5 bedroom villa has spectacular views across the countryside to the sea. It is a quiet and peaceful location with easy and quick access to the local town (San Vicente del Raspeig), and a 10 minute drive to Alicante airport and to El Campello beach.

The villa is not overlooked by neighbours and there is a large park area where children can play and run around. There is a park area with swings, a climbing frame and a full size basketball net. There is a shaded seating area in the park for anyone wanting to sit and watch the fun. 2 other large garden areas and a huge patio area with a pool right outside the front door will make this villa very popular with families and those who like to live quietly but near to amenities.

There are plenty of DVDs, toys and books for the children (and adults) to make use of if they fancy playing/reading inside in the cool. There are sit on push along baby bikes for the very young to play with on the patio, as well as new inflatables for the pool purchased at the beginning of each season. There is a brand new Swingball tennis set to play on the patio.

In preparing for the 2016 season there are two new flat screen televisions in each of the Lounge areas. New orthopaedic mattresses have been purchased for all single beds and WiFi has been installed. This wifi is on an individual hi speed router and is not a 'communuty' one which are usually much slower with limited service. . All airco units have been serviced and are in tip top condition. Every bedroom has both an airco and a ceiling fan. There is a blue tooth speaker system in the Lounge area so you can listen to your music as and when you choose.

You will need a hire car when staying at the villa, and those who have bought a satnav have found them very useful.

About Shirley

The villa was our family home for 7 years. It is ideally located in tranquil surroundings whilst being very near to the beaches and tourist resorts of the Costa.

We have been letting out the villa since 2010 and have had some lovely people as holiday tenants. We only accept family bookings as we are keen to make sure our home is well looked after.

Shirley purchased this villa in 2002

Why Shirley chose Alicante Province and Costa Blanca

One of the main reasons we chose this location was its close proximity to Alicante airport. Just a 10 minute drive away makes it very easy to take quick trips back to the UK or pick up relatives and friends arriving for holidays.We loved the villa because it was so big compared to houses in England, it has a pool right outside the front door, and has lots of space for our 3 boys to run around and play. It is also very safe and secure being walled and gated. The area itself is very safe with no crime and the villa is situated in a small quiet hamlet just outside of the large town of San Vicente del Raspeig. It is a 5 minute drive away from the shops, bars and cafes. The villa also has easy motorway access to Benidorm, Elche, Torrevieja, Denia, Javea, and Moraira. All places worth a visit.

What makes this villa unique

We find that the villa offers the perfect combination of being in the peace and quiet of 'real Spain' whilst being only a short drive away from towns, beaches and tourist areas. Our children love the beach and we spend most of our holidays down at El Campello or San Juan - a 10 minute drive away on the new AP7 motorway. The villa is great for entertaining outside or having impromptu parties as there is plenty of space for tables and chairs right outside the front door making getting in and out to the kitchen very easy. Similarly the pool is ideal for those with children as adults can sit and relax by the pool or under the shade and still have a full view of what the children are up to.

The park areas gives the kids something else to do on an evening when we are relaxing at home. There is a full size professional basketball net. a climbing frame and swing set plus a brand new 2.5m trampoline.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just got home. We have had a really good time and really enjoyed the use of your villa. Its in a fantastic location with beautiful surroundings as you know. The kids really enjoyed having the toys to play with and the DVDs, (Nanny Mcphee especially) were a great hit with them. Say a big thanks to your Dad as well - he was a great help. We used the taxis to get around and found one we used all week. I've left his card and tel no on the noticeboard.

Thanks again.

M Jones (July 2011).

We did have a lovely time and the kids did enjoy the pool, in fact we spent most of the week just lounging round it. The kids had a fab time

and have said that it was their best holiday yet,your dad is lovely and

very helpful.

L Lindley (July 2011)

We had a lovely time thanks. The villa is great for two families - there's plenty of room and everything you could need. Your Dad was really helpful too.The kids loved the pool.

Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a stay with 4 adults and 4 children under 8. The house was perfect for our needs in fact we even had a spare room as the kids wanted to share. The pool was great and we spent most of our time relaxing ( as much as you can with small children ) around it. There are lots of beaches nearby ....Sat nav was very helpful here. We also visited the caves and waterfalls. Shirley very helpful with any questions. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent facilities, good location. property well furnished and included many extras. The swimming pool was greatly appreciated by all members of the party.plenty of outdoor seating and several shaded areas for when the day was at it's hottest.

Air conditioning was a real blessing.

It was lovely to stay in a property where we felt at home.

Pre visit information and details of local ammenities was appreciated.

We enjoyed a very relaxing holiday

great holiday home; lovely location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fantStic holiday in this villa . So peaceful and in a beatuful setting with the mountains behind. It was the perfect holiday for our family to relax. The villa itself is huge, and very well kept. No.complaints whatsoever. When we were not out on day trips up and down the coast, we spent all of our time on the patio or in the pool.

We'd recommemd for all ages and all types of groups.

Great villa great people

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a few of my friends rented this villa for a week not so long ago and just did not want to leave. It was everything we were hoping it to be and more: amazing private pool, spectacular view, nice garden and lots of space inside and out. The villa was clean and had everything we could need so it felt like home straight away. It is not right on the coast but it does not take long to get to any of the beaches.

I would recommend climbing to the top of the higher peak behind the house for sunset, with a bottle of chilled wine and good company, its not too steep and it only takes 15 mins, but definitely worth the hike.

In terms of reservations, deposits and so on, we had a very good service Shirley and Bill are amazing.

Hope you have a great time too!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review... It is nice to know that people are enjoying holidaying in what was our family home for many years. We think it is ideally located, spacious and has everything you could want for a family holiday, but it is nice to hear that our tenants think so too!! We always try and make sure that you have everything you need both before, and during your holiday. I answer emails/calls the same day and whilst in Spain my Father pops round to do the initial 'tour' of the villa and to answer any questions you may have. I love the idea of taking a bottle of wine up the mountainside behind the villa - now the kids are older we may just try this on our next visit!!

Fab fab fab!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this villa June 2013, it really is a beautiful villa with stunning views. I was surprised just how big it was for the money we spent, it's like something a film star would have, especially with the guitar in the pool!! ; )

I thoroughly recommend this place for families, there's lots to do with the lovely pool, play area, lots of land, DVDs with extra lounge area for kids. It's big enough for 2-3 families to stay in and I will be returning with friends next year. You really will not be disappointed, you've for the seclusion and privacy of the villa and pool but in a short drive you can get to the beach very easily. Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. I love the comment about the film star pool - that's what you get for having a lead guitarist for a husband! :) We think the villa is very spacious - the rooms are much larger that what we are used to in the UK - and we have lots of toys, games and books for both children and adults - just in case you get bored with splashing around in the pool, or playing in the park area :) We would love to have you back next year.. See you then!

Car: recommended


The award winning El Campello beach is just 12 minutes away by car.

El Campello is a delightful holiday resort situated in a perfect position. This is a town that has resisted the lure of mass tourism and with its unpretentious air, this resort is perfect for both couples and families alike.

The beaches of San Juan and Alicante are 12-15 minutes away.

Benidorm takes just 25 minutes in a car.


Alicante airport is just a 10 minute drive away - idea for those who do not like the long transfer times.

Holidaymakers will need to hire a car.


Car hire is recommended. Nearest town is 2 mile away on autovia - San Vicente del Raspeig has supermarkets, banks, parks, swimming pool, shops and many bars, cafes and restaurants. It is a large town.

Doctor - 2 miles.

Hospital - 5 miles.

Further Details:

Check out some of the beautiful places to go locally including:

Busot Caves - Walk down into the huge caves of Busot.

Fonts D'Algar - if swimming in waterfalls is your thing then this is a day not to be missed. A fantastic day out.

Elche - best known for the huge amount of palm trees growing here, plus the historic buildings and churches in the centre.

Benidorm - the busiest, most garish city on the Costa. Known worldwide, Benidorm needs no introduction - Great for a night out clubbing, or to see live comedians, bands or show.

Torrevieja - Lots of English, houses and shops...

El Campello - Beautiful blue flag beaches - not too crowded. Lovely seafront walk, lots of little shops and boutiques.

Alicante - Great for a day shopping - dinner by the yachts or a night out in the 'old town'. Lots of cafes, shops and bars.

Denia, Javea - Great beach resorts - blue flag sea and beaches

Note: The mountains and mountain villages set behind the villa are very popular with both 'ramblers' and cyclists. There are some great walks and cycle tracks available if you like to get off the beaten track.

Also see Isle de Tabarca, Elche, Guadamar, Valencia.
