About Gill

We have lived in this area since 2002 with our 2 sons and dogs, and have completely integrated into the Spanish way of life. We speak 3 languages and have a background in tourism, marketing and catering and have our own Estate Agent business.

Gill purchased this villa in 2002

Why Gill chose Torrevieja Area

We love the tranquility of being situated in the countryside surrounded by open fields but also like the fact that we are not remote and are only 15 minutes walk from the charming town of Dolores.

What makes this villa unique

Our property is unique. It is not a new-build but a renovated south-facing detached country house providing modern conveniences within the Spanish farming community.

Perfect relaxing family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Having read the previous reviews we were not disappointed.

From the day we booked and throughout the holiday the owners were outstanding, advising car hire, directions, excursions etc.

When we arrived the fridge was fully stocked with a selection of food and drink which was very welcome.

The accommodation was exceptional and very clean with everything required to make our holiday so enjoyable.

Outside was also exceptional with a lovely pool and plenty of areas to sunbathe or to relax in the shaded areas, the BBQ oven was huge with an outside sink and preparation area, the roof terrace provided many an hour in the evening playing some of the games provided whilst enjoying the beautiful views of the surrounding farmland and mountains. The pool table, table tennis and table football provided the teenage boys (and father!) with plenty of entertainment.

The one thing which highlights the location of the property is the unbelievable peace and quiet only broken by the occasional cockerel or the herd of goats being shepherded past the property back to the nearby farm.

We walked into Dolores on a number of occasions for a drink or a meal which took us 15-20 minutes, there were plenty of bars and places to eat.

We did go to the beach which was only a 15 minute drive and there is also a market everyday in one of the nearby towns.

There are plenty of supermarkets within a 5 minute drive to stock up on the local produce and great selections of very reasonably priced wines!

We were lucky enough to be there during the summer fair and festival with various shows and concerts which were very enjoyable and varied.

There was one occasion where a field was marked out with 3000 squares and a cow was released into the field, we paid 3 euros for a square with a prize of 2000 euros if you were lucky enough if the cow splat in your square first!!

Unfortunately it wasn't our square but it was a different and fun way to spend 3 euros.

Overall the holiday was fantastic and fully recommend this property.

Absolutely Outstanding"

  • 5 of 5

The words "absolutely outstanding" are not enough praise for this property. The property looked pretty amazing on the listing but we were completely blown away by its actual beauty. The layout is perfect, with enough outside space for 6 people to stay and hardly see each other!! The facilities were high quality, with a fabulous attention to detail, every little thing was attended to. The property was immaculate, exceptionally clean and perfectly maintained. The hospitality from the owners was also absolutely outstanding with a fridge full of Spanish delights on arrival which included sparkling wine and bottled water. On a more serious and personal note, whilst staying recently we experienced a serious medical emergency and without the unbelievable help, co operation and translation carried out by both Gill and Fares I really do dread to think of the possible outcome. We would never have managed such a difficult worrying and stressful time without their unwavering support. This villa is amazing as are the wonderful owners. Thank you

Perfect for a family holiday in the sunshine!

  • 5 of 5

This was without doubt the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. The layout is fantastic with lots of sunny and shady areas - I loved the pool as it wasn't too deep for our little boy and there were plenty of games to keep him amused (table tennis, pool table, darts and table football.) The Villa was beautifully clean, thoroughly equipped and well thought out with attention to detail. The owners were amazing - there on call if needed for anything, but left us to enjoy our rest. We were welcomed with some traditional Spanish snacks which was very welcome. Location wise this was ideal for us - five minutes from the local town of Dolores but out in the countryside and away from the noise of the busier tourist areas. We can't wait to go back and would choose this villa over all the others we have stayed in. Absolutely amazing. Thank you so much!

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

My partner, her father and myself spent 10 days at this lovely villa in September based in the heart of the beautiful Spanish countryside. It is only a 5 minute drive to the town of Dolores and a 20 minute drive to the beautiful beaches of La Marina.

The place is a real home from home with every possible amenity you could want for whatever age you are. My father in law described it as being like a private hotel. There is a beautiful pool with many areas to sit and relax whether in or out of the shade. A pool table, table tennis, fuseball, (all full size) an Xbox, a Wii, Internet and Sky are all there so there is something for every age. There are some good restaurants in the area and Dolores is a nice small town with pretty square. We were lucky to be there for a fiesta for which the whole town turned out. It was great fun!

The owners Gill and Fares are lovely people and nothing was too much of a problem for them.

I would highly recommend the villa and hope to be able to return ourselves in the near future.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

I took my elderly mother for a pre-op holiday in this beautiful country house. It has everything you could possibly ask for and more, and is maintained immaculately. The owners have left no stone unturned to ensure their guests are comfortable.

Although the owners live in the adjacent property, the house is very private, the owners are very respectful of their guests privacy and it was a bit of a bonus to have them available if we needed any advice about good restaurants etc.

We will definitely make a return visit next year!

Villa experience in Dolores

  • 5 of 5

This villa has got all the things you need for a family getaway. However on this occasion just my wife and I rented the property. It had everything we were looking for. A rural location (this is a farming region so over the high property wall we had a horse, ducks and a cockerel, as well as crops surrounding the villa.) Lovely swimming pool, pool table, table tennis, football table, B.B.Q. lots of relaxing chairs and outside dining facilities, these things repeated on the roof terrace, perfect for evening meal and wine watching the sun setting, while listening to crickets and seeing bats flying around. In the hot sun there is plenty of shelter under orange trees or in the rear of property where there is a table and chairs in a private secluded area of patio. Inside the hosts have provided everything. Well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, two bedrooms with lots of storage and comfortable beds. Lounge has sky TV with lots of English channels or you can play lots of games from the selection provided. The hosts are friendly without being intrusive. They live next door in the adjoining property with two friendly but safe dogs and are ready to help with any request, in our case we arrived about 9.30pm and they provided enough food and wine to keep us content until we could shop the next day. Beaches close by, about 15mins in car if you want them, and lots of places to eat out in Dolores or surrounding villages and towns if you don't want to eat at the villa. We are seasoned travelers having stayed in many villas and properties around Europe. This one scores very well on all fronts, modern, clean, well equipped. Any negatives? The water in the two bathrooms takes a long time to turn hot, maybe electric shower units would work better. This is the only thing I could think to note as a frustration. So if you don't mind a few animals around and you like it peaceful either on your own as a couple or with the family in a rural setting, we would recommend this Villa. If you want excitement and noise go to the Costa Del Sol!
