Overview

About the property

Villa in Alicante, Costa Blanca North, Spain - 5 Mins Drive To Shops/Bars/Restaurants/beach, 20 Mins From Airport, Alicante Port, Torrevejca,

The villa is in a private estate called La Escuera in La Marina, all the villa's in this estate are big and have to have a minimum of 1000 sqm plot. I am renting my 4 bedroom, 2 Bathroom guest accommodation with WIFI, which I only use for around 3 weeks a year, so you will have the villa to yourself. Due to the size of the villa, it has a large area for sunbathing, swimming, relaxing, all on one level. The whole area is surrounded with walls, so it is very secure and private, although you are very close to everything. There are two large parasols and a gazebo. The lounge/dining/kitchen and also the main bedroom have coin operated air-con units, there are also ceiling fans in the lounge and the main and second bedroom. The villa has everything you need. You walk out your front door and the pool is right in front of you. It is all on 1 level there is lots of garden furniture and 8 sunbeds. This is the perfect place for an early evening barbecue. Or venture out to the town for a lovely meal.

There is a private english lady taxis service that has an 8 seater contact 0034678229157 lynnehillgreen@gmail.com or kay who is looks after the house that lives opposite 0034667811549 kayepattison@hotmail.com who i find better to contact on whats app, she charges 30 euros from the airport in her car. She can also be booked for local journeys with 24hrs notice.

I recommend hiring a car as I love to go into Alicante town on a night out and to Torrevieja to visit the evening market and it is just easier to get around.

However if you just want a relaxing holiday around the pool then Kay or Lynn will pick you up. La Marina town is a 15 min walk where you can find loads of bars and restaurants.

About Derrick Fiddes

I run a large restaurant in St Albans Hertfordshire and my partner and i use my villa around 5 weeks a year.

I do not have children.

I have owned it for about 5 years and bought it as a new build. I have decided to rent out to holiday makers my 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom guest accommodation.

I have never rented it before but i have let friends use it.

I would like to try and cover my bills as currently i send around £5000 per year for bills and maintenance.

I am sad to leave the villa as it is gorgeous.

I bought the villa because it was close to the airport and the beach. Its about 15 or 20 mins on the beach road N332 from Alicante. Very easy to find and a very central location.

Derrick Fiddes purchased this villa in 2006

Why Derrick Fiddes chose San Fulgencio

I bought this property in 2008 newly built.

I looked at property in Cyprus and Turkey but decided on Alicante because it is 2 hours flight time from the U.K, It is close to the airport and easy to get too, Close to the beach, in a private area that has no building work in an established area, Close to the Alicante to Torreveja, 5 mins drive from La Marina town with many shops, restaurants and supermarkets 10 mins drive to the old town of La Marina.

It is a large property with a large plot so there is plenty of room to relax and have fun.

It is peaceful the only thing you can ever hear is the local cock waking up in the morning.

It is a very romantic getaway

What makes this villa unique

Most properties in the area have small land and often a shared pool.

Because of the size of the villa it has a large paved area next to the pool and on the other side of the villa there is 3 trees to give shade where you park your car.

All the money that is taken in rent is invested in the villa, after the bills are paid of course.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gorgeous villa in a perfect location i will be going back. My children would not leave the pool.

Alex Carvalho



Great value for money. Loads of nice restaurants very close by.

Although i love the beach i did not want to leave the villa. Pleased i hired a car though it was so much easier with shopping and sightseeing.

Paul Tacon 14/09/11



A perfect place to unwind peaceful and the pool area was so big just the place to have a BBQ. i will be going again.

Fabulous villa with everything you could possibly need

  • 5 of 5

As group of 6 women staying at this beautiful villa celebrating a friends birthday. We were delighted with the accommodation. It was immaculately clean inside & out. It was fully equipped to cater for the 8 guests that it sleeps. A wonderful shady eating area outside as well as plenty of sunny areas for you to sit.

We had no problems finding the local supermarket & restaurants, an easy 10 - 15 min walk away.

Kaye the housekeeper was a nice lady & extremely helpful.

We did go into Alicante one evening - which was lovely but we actually never made it as far as the beach as we enjoyed sitting, eating and chit chatting around the lovely pool, we didn't feel the need to leave it.

We would definitely recommend this villa to our friends and it would be ideal for family's as we noticed tennis rackets and inflatables were there for guest use.

There was however no hairdryer as described in the description but Kaye was kind enough to lend us one.

All in all it was a lovely 3 night stay & this wonderful villa is what helped make the holiday special.

stunning villa, the pictures don’t do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spacious with a very big area around the pool. Plenty of bars and restaurants in the nearby town.

About a 15 min drive into Alicante port which is beautiful.

5 mins drive from the beach, where there is a restaurant and a beach bar.

We had a lovely relaxing time chilling by the pool, had lovely bbq’s and loved this villa.

Everything was easy to get too.

Will definitely book again, it’s very good value against the other villas we have been too.

Absolutely brilliant ! First but definitely not the last !

  • 5 of 5

The lovely weather is obviously a massive bonus however the accommodation is excellently appointed. Very clean and everything you really need when you are on holiday. 10 mins by car from the beach and La Marina Resort. They do day passes but not in peak season. The villas location was perfect for us. We had no plans to go far so did not hire a car. Plenty of restaurants/bars 15 minute walk plus decent supermarket. More choices 10 minutes by car. Taxis control rooms do normally have someone who speaks English if your Spanish isn't up to par. Taxis are not that expensive. The Saturday market area 10 minutes drive is an interesting experience. It closes at 2pm so get down there early. The villa was the main focus for us and the poolside area is excellent. Plenty of space to spread out lounge or sit. We were lucky to have loads of inflatable bits and pieces for the pool and the kids loved every minute. To just open the door and go straight into the pool 15 feet away was luxury. The housekeeper lives directly opposite and was extremely helpful with our queries. For those that like to keep in touch with home while away, there is very good WIFI and the biggest satellite dish in Alicante giving you all freeview UK channels !! The owner obviously maintains the property to a very good standard and thank you for making our holiday one to remember. We will be back soon.

If you want a villa near Alicante this is it!

  • 5 of 5

Can't fault the villa or the owner in any way has everything you need and all that you could want is within walking distance despite what other reviews have commented! That being said I wouldnt trust google maps to find a supermarket we asked the cleaner Kay (who is a hero for all she did for us) to drive us to the supermarket without realizing we had walked past 1 several times and could have easily walked to! It is a bit tricky to get taxis to COME to you however there is a taxi rank near the supermarket so getting to and from the airport is no problem and they will give you cards to ring a taxi that picked us up from the villa on two nights. The area itself is ridiculously quiet and the pictures dont do the pool area any justice it is absolutely amazing. Overall 10/10 and I have already recommended the villa to several friends and family! A+++

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

Really nice villa, we were here for a week and had Lynne pick us up from the Airport and take us shopping she was wonderful throughout our stay. The Villa is in a quiet estate and unfortunately is further away from the bars and restuarants than whats stated in the description! Had to get taxis and these are not easy to come by as there only seems to be 3 taxis that run in the area. We also found the air con to be quite expensive over the week as 1 euro only lasts just over an hour. If your looking for a quiet holiday away from hustle and bustle its perfect. If your wanting some entertainment and bars that are 'close' be prepared to have taxis at the ready or do a 25/30 min walk in the heat.

Owner's Response: I am pleased that you liked the villa and that Lynne was helpful. Indeed, the villa is situated on a Private estate which is a perfect environment for total relaxation, in a separate area in La Marina where all the larger properties are. However, I must point out that the description which is given in regard to the distance from the restaurants and amenities is quite correct and yours is the first complaint. Most of our regulars don’t even bother to hire a car any more as they know they can walk, with ease, to our many local bars and restaurants. For those who wish to explore venues further afield, I’ve not had any detrimental comments should they wish to travel by taxi, that none were available. There are plenty operating in the area. I will make a point of leaving additional telephone numbers for taxi hire for future guests. Kay that looks after the villa is always happy to give guests lifts anywhere in the area also. I recommend on my listing to hire a car as I like to explore and it is so cheap and easy, I personally always do this. As far as keeping the villa cool is concerned, there are ceiling fans which create an excellent air flow, electric floor fans and if required, there are also air conditioning units installed. Many guests find they can cool the rooms without even needing to turn on the air conditioning. However, I recently decided to have a meter installed for the air con units as there were some occasions when people would go out and leave them running all day which obviously made the electricity bills unsustainable. Since having these meters fitted, one Euro allows you approximately 2/3 hours continuous use which I don’t believe to be classed as expensive. In the really hot months of summer I put it on for 20 mins before I go to bed to cool the area down then leave a fan on low. I always take on board helpful comments made, and am constantly striving to make sure my guests go home feeling happy, relaxed and keen to come back. I hope overall your stay was an enjoyable one.
