Stunning All Around Sea and Mountain Views with Complete Privacy; Perfect!

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Villa in Benidoleig, Near Denia & Javea on the Costa Blanca, Spain - Peaceful Location With Total Privacy

"Atalaya del Sol" (The Sun's Watchtower) is set in one of the most idyllic locations in this part of Spain with perhaps the most spectacular views in the region. The villa is a real home having been the full-time home of the owner for over 20 years. There are many terraces to enjoy the sun or shade at any time of day and all are shielded from prying eyes. It is built on one level with just 4 stairs separating the living from the sleeping areas, 3/4 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite) If you wish to use all four bedrooms it is necessary to pass through a single bedroom which is an ante room to the master bedroom. Externally there are numerous terraces both covered & open & a fabulous 10m x 5m private pool with breathtaking views across the Segaria mountain range to Denia and the Las Marinas coastline. Views from the sun room and front terraces extend through 270º (the other 90º you can see if you pop out to the bbq area at the back) and they vary in every direction. There is satellite TV (free view or bring your sky card) and high speed wireless internet is available. Air-conditioning (bedrooms, lounge & sun room) heating, fireplace, dishwasher etc.

About the Owner

My son, Carl, now looks after the villa and I now live with him and my daughter-in-law nearby, but I moved to Spain with my husband in 1988 when we bought Atalaya del Sol. After a couple of months of hard work and preparation we were able to move in and loved living there for over 20 years. My husband has passed away and I'm not sufficiently fit to be able to live alone there.

We’ve always loved the villa for its special location, the fantastic views (totally captivating both day and night) and for its total privacy. Over the years we’ve made changes adding a terrace here and a bedroom there etc. and it’s been one of the most beautiful homes I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting let alone living in.

Perfect getaway location.....

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location to relax and enjoy the quiet life. Splendid views and some lovely places to visit within an easy drive. Would highly recommend the trip across the mountains to the waterfalls.

The property itself is very homely, don't expect a typical clinical holiday villa. This is someone's home and has all the touches that make it a pleasure to stay in.

Owner's Response: As always it's a great pleasure to learn that our guests have enjoyed their stay and appreciated our villa for what it is; a comfortable family home in a wonderful location where one can enjoy a relaxing break and really wind down. We have been fortunate/unfortunate enough to have a week free since our last guest's visit and have taken the opportunity to upgrade the villa with a remodel of the en-suite bathroom and six new windows. It's still a proper home though, just nicer.

Perfect !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Janice & Carl for a tremendous family holiday. The villa was just what we had hoped for from the description. Well equiped; air con came in handy, the views from the pool fantastic and always a terrace and chairs for sun or shade. Assuring to know that the owner is there at hand if needed but not intrusive if not. The Button Family Northumberland.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful with wonderful views over the bay to Denia and the surrounding countryside. It is very quiet and secluded and feels more like a home than a rental villa with everything you could possibly need.

There are some very good, reasonably priced local restaurants and if you are looking for more somewhere busier Denia is only 15 minutes away.

We enjoyed ourselves so much we immediately booked for next year. Thank you Carl and Janice.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Property was in a fantastic location with the most amazing views. Easy exploring to fabulous beaches such as Oliva, Moraira, Calp and Arenal. We also just loved staying at the villa and soaking up the wonderful scenery plus we saw our first ever red squirrels. A truly lovely place to stay.

Owner's Response: As always our guests comments are greatly appreciated. We work hard to earn the highest ratings and are most gratified when our guests choose to come again. We would love to have the chance to welcome all of our guests back, but hope, in particular, that Ash and his family will return so that we can earn that elusive star next time!

Owner's Response: We always enjoy the pleasure of having our guests return time after time and we are so pleased to learn that you still feel that our villa is a home from home. We have tried hard to keep a homely feel as opposed to that of the typical holiday rental villa as we feel that it all adds up to the most comfortable and enjoyable experience. Thank you for taking the time to review Atalaya Del Sol; it's greatly appreciated and always helpful for any future guests who may be considering whether it is the right type of holiday for them. One type of holiday experience can't be right for everyone; in our case we are hoping to exceed the expectations of someone anticipating a comfortable holiday in a beautiful villa.

Location

From the Owner

When you see the villa the answer to this will be absolutely clear. Finding a beautiful villa on a flat(ish) plot with stunning views which is not overlooked is a very tricky feat. If you want the possibility of walking to the village and don't want to drive up miles of winding roads it's even harder. When you manage to get one, you don’t let it go. We'd always wanted a home with a view of the sea and where better than where there are over 300 days of sun per year, country walks on your door step and stunning sandy beaches that stretch for miles within easy reach. When you fancy a bite out, a typical 'menu del día' (lunchtime 3 course meal with wine) is still typically under 10€. Mountains, beaches, culture, good food, peace and quiet and privacy; what more can you ask for?

Facilities

From the Owner

The desire to enjoy the outdoor life has inspired the design of this villa with terraces on all sides and the opportunity to seek or hide from the sun at any time of day whilst enjoying our privacy which has always been of primary importance to us. We could watch the world go by from our own little haven. The villa is very comfortable with all modern amenities, even a wireless internet connection and it's always been nice to feel that the pool is safe for when my grandchildren and my great grand-daughter came.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: As well as the beautiful pool area there are also a variety of board games and reading materials to ensure you've always something to entertain yourself with. We can supply a cleaning service if you wish which includes a change of bed linen and fresh towels (charged separately) Outside: Plenty of outside eating, relaxing and sunbathing areas. There is a large 10 x 5m swimming pool from where you can see just about everywhere without being overlooked. The pool is serviced by a pretty covered terrace where those wishing to escape the sun can relax whilst maintaining an eye on the goings on if needed. To the rear you will find a very useful BBQ area and a place to hang out the washing. The house is at the end of a private road and is gated so parking is easy either inside or outside the property. There is also a garage. If you fancy a break from relaxing and unwinding and a trip to the beach is in order; it’s around 20 mins drive to the wonderful beaches of Denia & Las Marinas with their plethora of restaurants & shops. The local village to which one can walk (it’s only a few hundred metres away) has a good little supermarket and all the hopefully unnecessary services - medical centre, pharmacy etc. We don’t want to go, but it’s good to know they’re there. Utility Room: Off the kitchen is a useful larder/ultility room with washing machine and plenty of storage space. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: We supply fresh bed linen and towels at the beginning of your stay. The pool is cleaned on a regular basis and this may occur during your stay. Prior advice will be given. Cleaning service with fresh bed linen and towels available at additional cost. Other: Various sun terraces in addition to a great pool area (fenced and gated for children's security). Both covered and open terraces are gaily sprinkled around the villa so you can chase or hide from the sun as you wish. All are very private and peaceful.
