About the Owner

Having spent our holiday in the inland Valencia area only once we immediately fell in love with its beauty. Valleys, mountains, close to the beaches, friendly people. We viewed a number of properties and we decided to take the plunge and bought the property in Ontinyent. We did our utmost best to design a completely new house making sure it was absolutely perfect for us to escape the everyday rate race. My wife Ann and I are both into teaching and we are self-employed, running a communications business. Our two kids Lisa and William equally enjoy the "fun Spain".

We hope you'll enjoy it too!

We'd love to say it was horrible, don't ever go there - just so that we can keep this place as our guaranteed holiday each year, but we can't! We had the most amazing holiday. It's beautifully quiet, ideal location and with the most helpful owner - thanks Phil! Loads seen and so much more we want to see.

Fantastic villa in wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful 2 weeks at this villa this year. There were 2 families consisting of five kids and four adults , the pool was excellent and accommodation fantastic. Philip the owner was so helpful throughout our stay, not that there really was any help needed as ontinyent is a great town with lots to do. The river was a particular highlight and really recommend the trips to the coast and water theme parks . After such busy days we had fantastic evenings outside beside the pool chilling and relaxing in bar area whilst the kids were in and out the pool . Really highly recommended villa , thanks Phillip

Ideal holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We as a family have recently returned from a visit to this excellent villa. Our family consisted of four adults and two children. There was more than adequate room for us to 'spread out'. Whilst there the weather was extremely hot so the large pool proved inviting. The villa itself was well equipped with everything you could possibly need.

Ontinyent is a lovely town. Plenty of choice for eating and a very handy 'Aldi' just round the corner. The superb leisure centre close by offering superb facilities was appreciated by all.

We also enjoyed visiting the castle at Xativa and the picturesque village of Bocairent clinging to the hillside. There was a gorge too near Bocairent where our daredevil grandson enjoyed throwing himself into the water.

To summarise, we certainly recommend this lovely villa. We would also like to thank Philip for his help and letting us have the opportunity to stay there.

Fantastic Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Oliva is a great villa and suitable for all ages. We were a large family, ages ranging from a 3 month old baby to an 84 year old. Lovely open plan living room and kitchen with large bathroom and two bedrooms downstairs, which was suitable for my 84 year old mother-in-law and my family with the 3 month old baby. The rest of the family were in the bedrooms upstairs which were a good size. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, dishes, glasses, and all the utensils you would need.

Lots of space outside and a superb swimming pool which the kids loved as the weather was fantastic, very hot. The bar at the side of the pool was an added bonus and we sat out every night either for dinner or just a few drinks. The prices for food and drink in Ontinyent are brilliant and there are three great supermarkets not far from the villa. "Aldi" which is nearest to the villa then "Vidal" & "Family Cash" stocked everything you would need.

There are lots of places nearby to visit so the villa is in a good location.

Can't thank Philip enough for all his help when booking villa and answering any queries we had before we went. Great communication. Thanks again.

Our superb holiday in Villa Oliva

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at villa Oliva with my brother and his wife for 2 weeks. It was a really good holiday. Normally we stay in a hotel in Tenerife but having your own villa and private swimming pool is a lot better. Spacious bathroom downstairs. Very good big beds and pillows. Everything very clean. All the kitchen utensils you could wish for and thousands of glasses.

Lots of space outside; we could choose were to sit and relax outside. Because there are a lot of different spots and garden chairs.

The weather was very warm and we enjoyed swimming in the big pool.

We found our way to the villa very easily with the directions we were giving.

It's very close too the supermarkets and shops. We very often walked to the town to have dinner. We were very surprised that we could have a menu meal for 7 euros each.

We have already booked for next year, because we really liked it. It was really good.

A wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful villa was all it promised to be. We were nine people from age 8 to 65 and it suited everyone. It was around 30 degrees every day so the big pool was frequently used by both children and adults. Philip even took the time to come and check the pool in person during the week. For those of us who like the shade there was a lovely little spot under the olive trees to enjoy. Perfect for relaxing and reading a book. The house was spacious enough for everyone, great with a separate floor upstairs for privacy. The house had all the utilities we could need. The kitchen was well stocked with a lot of utensils. There was AC in every room witch made it comfortable day and night. There were plenty of towels for everyone.

Philip was very helpful in answering any questions we had before the trip. He provided all the information we needed to easily find the place and where to shop nearby for example.

We would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great holiday.

We went to see the Xativa Castle, a very nice trip for a cloudy day since there was a lot of walking. We also went to see the aquarium in Valencia, very nice and great fun for the kids. The nearby ravine was great fun for the kids to explore.

Thanks Philip for letting us stay in your lovely house!

From the Owner

The area is just perfect! Beautiful views from the breakfast area, across a range of mountains. Enjoying cocktails in the lounge area by the pool overlooking the beautiful views and olive trees. It's as if you're in rural Spain, but in a few minutes you're at the local supermarket. You can even walk to the town centre and enjoy a wonderful menu del dia for as little as 7 Euros. Or have a cup of coffee on one of the many squares and watch laid-back Spanish life moving on. It's all you could ever want.

Activity and Interests


Gandia beach is the closest and is a 25-mile drive which usually takes us 35 minutes. A dual carriageway takes you straight to the vast sandy beaches, lounge bars and restaurants.


Ontinyent is spot in the middle between Valencia and Alicante airport, thus making it easy to book a flight. We have flown to both airports and it takes us about 55 minutes to get to the villa. Good thing: toll-free motorway. There is also a train station in Ontinyent. Train travel from Valencia (city) to Ontinyent takes 1 hour and 20 minutes. The property is approximately 1.3 miles from the city centre, situated on the rural outskirts of Ontinyent, a 2-minute walk from the river, Pou Oletta.


Ontinyent town centre is 1.3 miles.

Xativa (castle) is a 20-minute drive.

Bocairent (caves and monastery) is a 15-minute drive.

Further Details:

Ontinyent is a medium-sized town where you'll find lots of shops, a mall, a cinema, lots of squares where you can enjoy a glass of wine along with some tasty tappas. Plenty of restaurants providing delicious set meals at unbeatable prices. We usually walk into town, have a three-course meal at 10 Euros per person.

All shopping can be done in the town of Ontinyent. There are a couple of supermarkets around town. The closest discounter is Aldi which is only a mile away.
