Villa With Private Pool And Open Views Over Countryside



Updated: 10-Sep-2016
Villa in San Miguel De Salinas, Costa Blanca South, Spain - Peaceful Location One Mile From Local Village And 15 Minutes By Car To The Beaches

Our lovely villa is situated in a select,quiet,semi-rural hillside development of individually-designed villas. It is light and airy with wide-ranging views across open countryside. It stands in its own large established very private garden. We and our guests enjoy the calm and peaceful atmosphere when relaxing. Early morning we can watch long-eared Spanish rabbits at play and at dusk in summer two eagle owls glide silently over the villa. However it is also less than a mile to San Miguel de Salinas -just 5 mins by car or a pleasant walk passing the interesting and quirky Castle restaurant/bar if you need refreshment on the way. The village has numerous bars and restaurants as well as local supermarkets etc. On market day (Wed) San Miguel really buzzes and the old town with its cave-houses is fascinating. For livelier upbeat atmosphere Villamartin Plaza (10mins drive) offers a huge range of bars, discos, and restaurants and is very popular. There are excellent local taxi services.

About the Owner

We live in Cheshire Uk and both worked in education. Every summer when our children were young we tried to take them on holiday abroad. We camped in tents , did house swops and then bought a caravan which we dragged around France, Switzerland, Italy and eventually Northern Spain. Here we felt instantly at home and used it as a base to tour other parts of Spain. When we retired we finally took the plunge and bought our villa. Now we and our children and grandchildren all enjoy luxury holidays in Spain

Fantastic Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from a fantastic week at Villa Graciosa with our two young boys and their grandmother. On our arrival we were welcomed by Freddy, the owners’ representative, whose professional and friendly manner put us at our ease immediately: he assured us that nothing would be too much trouble and that he would be readily available to help or advise us should we need him – which we didn’t, as no problems arose due to the high standard of the property and its facilities.

It was well equipped, down to the last detail, including a bookshelf full of holiday reading and board games – for both children and adults – and the invaluable CBeebies channel on the cable television. Having said that, we spent most of the time in the pool and garden area, which was well supplied with children’s inflatables and outdoor furniture, plus an easy-to-use barbecue.

We did occasionally manage to drag ourselves away from the villa to enjoy the lovely beach resort of Mil Palmeras, the Wednesday market in San Miguel and the restaurant and farm shop in Rebate in its beautiful country setting – an excellent find!

This by far one of the easiest holidays we’ve had with the children. The villa, its surroundings and facilities surpassed our expectations. We can’t wait to go again!

5 Star Villa Rental

  • 5 of 5

Great villa and pool comprehensively equipped, with thoughtful things like a full wine rack (replace what you use), a cupboard full of tea bags and coffee etc. The owners are a pleasure to do business with, helpful and providing an efficient and clear to understand booking/payment service. Local meet and greet man Freddie desperate to impress and help in any way you want (although we had no need for his help).

Recommend to anyone wanting a comfortable villa and pool in a quiet location 10 minutes from town by car. Plenty of lovely restaurants and shopping plazas with top quality boutiques nearby (15 to 20 minutes by car) as well as local markets for bargains. A car is needed for this location.

From the Owner

We chose Costa Blanca mainly because of the mild climate. Although we loved Costa Brava with its mountains and rugged dramatic coastline we also found its weather rugged and dramatically changeable. We were once snowed up in the caravan in April! It is really wondeful to be able to sit outside in the villa's lovely garden in warm sunshine in the middle of winter. We love the great variety of beautiful white sand beaches which range from lively and bustling with bars, restaurants and full entertainment to low-key with just a beach-bar. We also enjoy walking and sometimes follow one of the walking trails from ner the villa which wind through the hills across orange groves. another day we might take a leisurely stroll to the local village

From the Owner

Our villa is our home and we have tried to equip it comfortably for both ourselves and our guests. There is aircon in all bedrooms and fly-screens are fitted to all windows.Ceiling fans and radiators are provided and on cooler evenings an efficient gas fire makes the lounge cosy. It is a no-smoking home. For us and all our guests the best thing about our villa is its calm and peaceful atmosphere and its lovely open view. We hope future guests enjoy our villa as much as we do

A burglar alarm is fitted (alarm code will be provided prior to guests' arrival) Health and safety Whilst children are very welcome (our grandchildren love their holidays at the villa) we must stress that parents are solely responsible for their children's safety. Children should never be left unsupervised on the roof terrace or in the garden and pool area. Outside: The villa is surrounded by a large, mature garden where fragrant white jasmine and night-scented galan de noche mix with vibrantly colourful Mediterranean plants and palms. In season guests can even pick their own figs and nectarines! From the large patio, perfect for alfresco dining and the terrace, there are uninterrupted views across open countryside towards the village and coastal plain. The views are even better from the rooftop solarium. At night it is also perfect for star-gazing whilst sipping a glass of local wine. The private swimming pool (32sq m) is the perfect place to play, cool off or exercise. There is a shower for rinsing off sun-protection before swimming. We provide patio furniture, sunbeds, parasols, garden tableware and a gas barbecue. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bed linen, bath towels, hand towels and tea towels are provided. Guests will need to provide towels for the beach and swimming pool. The villa is cleaned weekly when fresh linen and towels are delivered. Spanish sun makes drying own towels very easy!
