Great Family Villa
About the Owner
About June Taylor
We had the villa built in 2005 as a holiday for ourselves and our family and spent the following summers there with children and grandchildren. Now the grandchildren are all at university we have decided to leave the villa free during the summer months. We have spent many happy holidays there and continue to enjoy the delightful area and exceptional views. We are very fortunate to have so many good restaurants within a short walk or drive, and plentiful supplies of fresh produce and good cheap wine in such a beautiful part of Spain. With blue flag beaches a short drive away combined with the tranquillity of the situation for us it is the perfect holiday location. Whether you wish to laze by the pool, walk through the orange groves, or the up the mountains there is plenty for everyone.

Great Family Villa
A group of seven of us stayed at Casa Cropper last week and had a great time and I agree fully with the other reviews here. There was plenty of room for all and adequate sun beds around the pool. The view across the Jalon Valley is spectacular and there as always something to watch. The Villa is very well appointed and certainly had all the items we required for cooking and barbecuing. I strolled down into Alcalali a couple of times for a beer in Bar Tony. Served almost frozen when the temperature was nudging 40 - perfect! There is a shortcut there and back taking a small footpath through the pine trees at the bottom of the road, across to the little church and straight down. 10 minutes there and 15 back if you are reasonably fit. I have posted some photographs on Flickr of the villa and the local amenities of Alcalali and Xalo.
Fabulous villa, beautiful views
We had a lovely holiday at Casa Cropper, the villa is very clean and exactly as described, well laid out with good quality fixtures and fittings.
The pool is very inviting, beach towels supplied (fantastic) air conditioning a blessing and the views are absolutely stunning!
The Coast is about 30 minutes drive, lovely places to eat on the Calpe to Moraira Road (The Lowry).
Communication with the owners is second to none!
Thank you June & Michael, your villa is fabulous and we would love to return in the future.
Wonderful location, wonderful villa !
Simply the best villa we have ever rented in over 10 years of doing so - perfect location, perfect villa, perfect holiday ! extremely clean, comfortable and well laid out accommodation - the pool and outdoor space is excellent - as too is the separate apartment - perfect for extended family. Good quality fixtures and fittings. Local amenities sufficient for short term needs and a big shopping centre a short drive away . local restaurants in nearby Jalon were good. Will take about 20 mins to reach the beach but with the great pool this is not a big issue ! Thanks to June - hope to visit again in the future,
