Lovely weeks break... thank you
Set back from the road at the foot of a valley, the villa is nicely appointed, with very well kept gardens. The setting is below numerous other villas, which means it is somewhat overlooked on the pool side (not close by, but you can see other people looking down from a distance). The villa itself is comfortable, the top level outside space is a very nice space to sit and enjoy drinks and meals.
There were a few things to note though.
- Access: the access driveway is very narrow and is angled in one direction. Our hire car (Nissan Quashqui) only just made it through the gates. Limited turning also as the drive is long and thin. Someone had to 'see us out' on each occasion when leaving.
- Lighting: there are quite a few external lights around the villa, driveway and pool, but none apparently accessible by guests? We contacted Ann (the owner) who had the pool man switch some on for us around the pool after a couple of days (apparently the switch/es are located inside the lower garage area, no access for guests - very strange. There are also no lights on the lower seating area or around the back of the villa by the BBQ.... we were cooking by flame lights and iphone lighting one evening.
- Kitchen fridge/freezer. The unit is old. The freezer compartment was completely frozen up and the fridge took a couple of days to really cool things down. Ann explained availability of a separate freezer in the wash room, but that was quite a treck from the kitchen, outside washroom.
All in all, we had a nice break, the nearby font and BBQ restaurant / bar was great, as was the Oliva Nova golf complex areas and beach. Just these few things to consider....
A Lovely Villa!
We really enjoyed this villa. It was equipped with everything you needed and very clean and comfortable. Ann was very helpful on our arrival. The pool was fantastic and a great place to cool off. The terrace was a lovely place to enjoy meals. Thank you!
We have just spent a very relaxing and quiet week at this lovely villa. We really enjoyed the pool and couldn't have done without it to cool down. Lovely clean house and pool with beautiful gardens. The shaded balcony was great to get out of the midday sun and we ate all of our meals out there. All amenities easily accessible with a car. The owner, a lovely Irish lady, was nearby if we we needed any help but otherwise she left us alone to enjoy our holiday. Villa extremely well equipped with everything you should need.
A wonder relaxing stay
We booked the villa for a quiet, relaxing holiday with our two children and it exceeded our expectations. The villa is spacious, light and airy with a superb open terrace where we eat most days (day and evening). The pool in ideal and perfect for our family and we didn't feel over looked at all. The BBQ is excellent which we used a lot. There was a large supermarket a shot drive away so we stocked up for our stay. I'd thoroughly recommend this villa. Anna was a pleasure to deal with too - a lovely lady.
Anna Clara house
Beautiful quiet location but walking distance to bar restaurant, stunning beach, shops and more restaurants only 10 minutes away.
Lovely gardens with a good sized pool and large sunny verander. The house is well furnished and very clean, the owner is very helpful, but leaves you in peace. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and would highly recommend this villa.
Activity and Interests
The Villa is situated 1 mile from the beautiful and unspoilt blue flag white sand beach which is perfect for families and couples alike.(5 minutes in the car - a bit too hot to walk in the height of summer). There are miles of perfect beach with one of the few areas of the Mediterranean where sand dunes are still preserved. Little beach bars (chirinquitos) can be found dotted along the beach to provide cold drinks and snacks.
Nearest Airport: Valencia or Alicante at 90 Kilometres.
Nearest Ferry : Denia at 15 Kilometres.

A car is recommended.
On the Oliva Nova complex( 5 minutes drive) there is a restaurant, supermarket, bicycle hire shop, beach shop as well as an ice cream parlour and bar.
A 2 minute walk from the villa is the internationally known Font Salada thermal Spring and Bar which provides good local food. In the opposite direction is Font Salada Hotel where the Menu del Dia(menu of the day) is 15 Euros.
A short drive into Oliva (5 Kilometres) there is a choice of bars/restaurants both at the beach and in Oliva town.
Pego/Oliva Marjal Park is a wetland and bird reserve. Access is just beyond Font Salada. Throughout the year it is enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and bird watchers.
10 minutes drive away at Ondara there is a large shopping centre - Las Marinas just in case you want a change from the sun and beach.
Further south, about 35 minutes along the AP7 motorway, is the famous resort of Benidorm and close to it the Terra Mitica Theme Park (with all the usual rides and also Waterworld.
