Overview

About the property

4 bedroom with AC, 3 bath villa, Costa Blanca, Spain - Secluded Location, Mountain Views, Unspoilt Region, 20 Mins To Blue Flag Beach

This stunning, secluded south-facing villa with its own private heated pool, located in the beautiful, peaceful area of Valle Del Paraiso and within walking distance (2Km-20 minutes) of the picturesque market village of Jalon, with its excellent array of restaurants, friendly local bars, shops and other amenities. Relax and soak up the rays on the secluded sun terraces, whilst enjoying the stunning views over the breathtaking Jalon Valley. The golden, blue flag beaches at Benissa and Calpe are only a 15-20 minute drive away. Moraira, Denia and Javea are all easily accessible and it takes just 35 minutes to reach lively Benidorm, with its many attractions. There are many attractions in the area such as: many golf clubs, tennis, horse riding, hiking, cycling, sightseeing, safari parks, quad biking, snorkeling, blue flag beaches, water park (Aqualandia), theme park (Terra Mitica), Benidorm Palace, and many more.

The villa is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac and has 4 bedrooms, all with air-conditioning and 3 full bathrooms with showers. Three bedrooms are in the main house on the upper level and on the pool level is a separate double bedroom and 3 piece bathroom. All bedrooms have AC and remotely controlled ceiling fans, which are very efficient.

The lounge has a three two seater settees, which holds easily 6, probably 8 with younger kids. A six person round glass dining room table. A glass coffee table. An air conditioning unit. A 32" wall mounted flat screen HD LCD TV. A DVD/USB film player, a cd music player. For the occasional wet day there are well over a hundred films to watch and board games to play

On the upper terrace there is an inbuilt BBQ, outdoor seating for 8 people with fantastic views of the Jalon valley.

The optionally heated pool is 8' x 4' with Roman steps leading into it. It has the latest UVC cleaning system, which makes the water safer and doesn't rely so much on chemicals. It can be lit at night and it can also be electrically heated so it is useable 365 days a year. The heating is an optional extra priced at £85 per week and will give you August pool temperatures.

There are many steps over a few flights leading up to the villa so it may not be suitable for people with walking difficulties.

About Adam Wells

We are a middle aged family (my wife won't like this)with two daughters and a crazy cocker spaniel. We live and work in the somewhat wet and cold Lancashire region of the UK and yearn for the day we can permanently move out to Jalon.

Adam Wells purchased this villa in 2003

Why Adam Wells chose La Marina Alta

As they say location, location, location, eventually we would like to retire in Spain and having looked around many regions of Spain we found the Jalon Valley. We think it is the perfect location for relaxing and being away from it all, but also being close enough to a warm welcoming predominately Spanish community with its many amenities like shops, markets, good restaurants, tavernas and outdoor sports facilities. The blue flag beaches of Benissa and Calpe are only 15-20 minutes drive away. Travel is easy to and from here with the beautiful and pictruresque Jalon Valley right on your doorstep. Alicante and Valencia airports are just over an hour away and Benidorm with all its attractions (I have two daughters!) is only 35 minutes away.

What makes this villa unique

A quiet secluded location that is easy to relax in, whilst taking in the magnificent views of the mountains around the town of Jalon (Xalo), which is only 2 minutes away by car.

The property is not overlooked and is on a quiet cul-de-sac.

Kindest Regards,

Jacqui and Adam.

Feb 2013 - the villa and location far exceeded our expectations! We were just lost for words standing on the balcony taking in the breathtaking view. We really can’t fault our stay at all, you’ve provided everything a guest could possibly need. Jake

This villa is beautiful, the pictures are exactly as it is when you are there. It was clean and fully equipped for 8 of us. The inflatables for the pool really made it fun for the younger ones. The owners were very helpful and provided us with plenty of information about the villa and local area. I really recommend going here it's just lovely. Thank you, Elaine

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here; initially the steps (that we were warned about) were a bit daunting, but well worth it - the sun is on the patio and pool area for the day.

Excellent welcome pack and towels, etc. well catered for.

Very clean. Nice quiet area with lovely views.

Lovely villa with all you need

  • 4 of 5

Our family have just had a lovely stay at this great villa, accommodation was excellent, the views are spectacular and the food to be had in some of the resturants was great. Our only downside for my wife and I was the 59 steps but we managed to get up and down lots of times.

The villa has everything you could want for your stay in the kitchen, the lounge and the pool, we all spent a lot of time in the pool. Lots of places to visit in the surrounding area, we even spent a day in Valencia well worth a visit. We booked a meal and show at the Benidorm Palace, a great night out for us all. Would definately stay here again.

Lovely villa, amazing views over the Jalon Valley

  • 4 of 5

This is the 5th time we have stayed within the Jalon Valley, but the first time on this development, we were expecting a lot of steps, but they are a task especially when its 34 degrees and you have done a big food shop, pool was fantastic, attended at least 3 times during our 10 day visit, we chose to have pool heating as our 14 month old grandchild was with us.

We ate out 50% of the time, but it was good to see there was basic condiments available, villa was very clean and tidy, if you want fantastic views within a short distance from all local shops, restaurants and a good supermarket, look no further, but be warned there are a lot of steps, no good for the elderly. The Buchanan Clan plus one.

This was our 3rd stay at this villa and it never disappoints. The views and pool are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The steps up to the villa can be a little tiring but it's worth the climb.

The villa is clean and comfortable with everything you need.

We had our 16month old with us and we were really impressed by how safe the villa was for her. You can gate the stairs off and close doors through to the bedroom to keep her contained!

Jalon is a beautiful village with some great places to eat, Casa la Bernia and Casa Caty being two of our favourites.

We would definitely recommend this villa for anyone and everyone!

We will be back I'm sure.

Lovely Villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

May 2017

First experience of a holiday villa and we were not disappointed. The villa is spacious and well equipped, could not think of anything that was missing. There are plenty of places to visit within a fifteen mile radius i.e. Denia, Calpe, Benissa and a little bit further on Benidorm. This villa is situated on the highest point on the hills looking onto the town of Jalon ( Xalo ) and the views are absolutely stunning.

In Jalon two restaurants stand out and are well worth a visit, firstly Casa Claudia across from the Tourist Info. for very friendly and attentive service ( we were only €12.90 for 3 course meal incl. bread & drink ) and if you like a curry you won't be disappointed at The Everest View, a family run business, next street back from the main road, ( in our experience maybe best to avoid Saturday evening as busy and they do a lot of take-aways ).

We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa.
