About the property

Villa in Guardamar, Costa Blanca South, Spain - Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes Drive To Beach.

Casa Francesca is a south-facing, on El Raso, fully wheelchair-friendly detached villa situated in a quiet location overlooking orange groves. There are shops and restaurants within 5 minutes walk and it is just 5 minutes drive to the beach and 7 minutes to Guardamar, an unspoilt, 'typically Spanish' town with a delightful promenade and beautiful beaches. The villa is 30 minutes drive from Alicante airport and 40 minutes from Murcia (San Javier) airport.

About Frances Cunliffe

Hi. We live in the West Midlands in England but like to get over to the villa whenever we can as we enjoy the life over there. This year, however, we have decided to open it up for rental so that others may also enjoy the sunshine and the relaxing surroundings. We wouldn't ever think of selling the property as we enjoy it so much and the permanent residents on the complex make you so welcome. We really do see it as a second home!

Frances Cunliffe purchased this villa in 2004

Why Frances Cunliffe chose Torrevieja Area

We chose this particular location because of the design of the villa itself, the high-quality surrounding infrastructure, the beautiful beach at Guardamar and the surrounding coastline, and the town of Guardamar itself, which has a real 'Spanish' feel to it.

The fact that it is less than 45 minutes drive from 2 airports means that you can always find convenient flights.

Although the immediate location is quiet, there are plenty of historic towns and scenic villages within easy driving distance for days out.

What makes this villa unique

As soon as the sales agent showed us the showhouse for the property we knew that this design was exactly what we wanted as it offers plenty of room and is very light and airy.

There are excellent restaurants within walking distance and many more a short drive away.

The communal pool is rarely used - it is almost like having your own private pool!

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful six weeks holiday, it was very disabled friendly for myself including the area as I took my scooter with me and all the pavements had dropped curbs.

We visited the local restaurants and they are faboulous the food was outstanding and hopefully will be visiting the villa again in the future.

Thank you so much for letting us use your villa.

villa was perfect layout for the family including my mother recovering from two knee ops.

  • 3 of 5

Villa layout was good although had a few wee tired areas which should be looked at, but it maybe because we were early visitors for the season.

Bedside lamp shades in all rooms were broken .

Towels had to be rewashed before use as they smelled damp.

Windows and balcony doors were badly needing cleaned.

Light bulbs were needing replaced on both bathroom mirrors and kitchen spotlights.

Both of the available bikes had burst tyres.

Air-con is needing looked at in main living area as if on for any length of time there was water dripping onto T.V.

Felt very unwelcome in pool area when the permanent residents used the pool, even if just reading a book at the edge.

If the small things were addressed we would definitely try another visit.

A Fantastic Holiday had by all the family ☺☺☺

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from the villa and from my children's mouths.....' this has been the best holiday ever!!' We have had an amazing time and the villa is truly lovely 😊 . The area is perfect and we could not of asked for more . The villa is just as described and much more and is well kept and clean and immaculate. We have been in the communal pool every day for our 2 week stay here and only several times have seen others using it so have enjoyed a private swim at some point every day.The villa is well equipped and is home from home 😊 Frances was extremely helpful prior to our arrival in Spain and the caretaker Colin was very helpful. We have visited the local bars and have had some amazing meals in a lovely friendly atmosphere 😊 Rays bar was our favourite. We were very pleased that we had hired a car as this gave us the option to explore the beautiful area close by easily 😊 we intend to book for next year as soon as we return to England and would like to express our sincere thanks to Frances and Peter for allowing us to rent their lovely Spanish home for the past 2 weeks 😊 we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definately be returning next year . Many many thanks for a wonderful holiday xxxxxxx we agree with our children......Our best holiday ever xxxx

Casa Francesca

  • 5 of 5

We went specifically for the facilities on offer and were not disappointed. Really good place for a quiet chilling out break. Villa comfortable for 6 people with plenty of storage and equipment for use of guests. Can't fault anything about this villa or indeed the area. Local bars and restaurants are good and close enough to walk to in the evening. I would also recommend a car as others have said, as it is a nice area to get out and explore. Would love to go back again soon.

Peaceful, relaxing, superb!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in the Villa. The owners are very helpful and quick to respond to any questions before the holiday. Upon arrival at the villa we were met by the friendly , helpful caretakers who took time to show us round the villa and provided some very helpful local knowledge of where to visit , eat and shop.

The Villa itself is spacious and easily accommodated 6 adults, without us feeling we were on top of each other. The Villa has ample appliances to make it a home away from home and is kept very clean. The Villa is very comfortable and the aircon in every room makes it a comfortable retreat from the baking hot sun that we have experienced on both visits. For those who want it, the Villa has TV and DVD player and there are plenty of books and games to keep you entertained. There is a solarium on the top floor for serious sun worshippers and plenty of sun beds on the terrace outside.

The Villa is in a quiet location and shares a lovely communal pool, which feels exclusive as it is so quiet.

The Villa is on the El Raso urbanisation which offers a great selection of restaurants and bars within walking distance of the Villa and it has a great sense of community within the Urbanisation.

We would definitely recommend car hire, as there is plenty to see and do in the vicinity of the Villa. The beaches between Guardamar and Torreveija are soft and clean and the sea is shallow just off the beach ideal for sunbathing and swimming.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa to anyone seeking a peaceful and relaxing holiday in a well kept and homely Villa. Superb!

Nice villa very quiet

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice house well looked after and very comfy. Fully equipped kitchen, good TV, excellent aircon which makes you too cold if you turn it up too much. The communal pool is quite small but well kept and nice and deep, seldom used. Its about 100m walk from the house down the street and round the corner.

The location is extremely quiet looking onto open farmland. I wouldn't stay here without a car, the town and beach are a few kilometres away and the nearest shop and bars are about 500 metres.
