Villa in Godelleta, Nr. Bunol, Costa del Azahar / Valencia, Spain - Peaceful Location
A beautiful, traditional Spanish villa which has been sympathetically modernised and fully furnished. It benefits from a modern kitchen, spacious lounge with sofa bed and four bedrooms which can accommodate up to 10 people. The villa is ideal for families or Golfers. The property is set in peaceful, secluded gardens with breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside. The private garden has mature orange and lemon trees, a large swimming pool and patio areas for sunbathing. Situated close to the 5-star El Bosque Golf & Country Club with its many facilities including bar and restaurant as well as local supermarkets etc, it is also within easy reach of the town of Godelleta and only 25 minutes from the fabulous blue flag beaches of Las Arenas, Malvarrosa and El Cabañal. As well as being in the orange groves area, it is just a short drive to the thriving port city of Valencia, Spain’s third-largest city which has some of the most striking architecture in the country. With a wealth of elegant art nouveau buildings that line the streets, dynamic museums, a flourishing restaurant scene, lively nightlife, great shops and miles of beach, Valencia is bursting with Mediterranean exuberance. To get the most from your holiday we strongly recommend car hire to reach all the local towns.

A fantastic experience
We spent a week at Easter at this delightful property and had a brilliant holiday with the children. Set in the citrus fruit growing countryside just 20 minutes from the centre of Valencia, it is a haven of quiet and solitude with every conceivable resource on its doorstep, including some great bar restaurants just a couple of kilometres away. The house is clean and spacious with every facility you could hope for, including a well stocked kitchen, to make it a real home from home. There is a range of sports equipment and games for the kids, including a trampoline and a ping pong table but the real star of the show is the beautifully maintained swimming pool which as a clean and roomy sunbathing area. Even in April the weather was gloriously hot. We spent the evenings in the seated decking area, drinking cold beers and watching the sun go down. The property owners could not have been more helpful and were always at the end of a phone to answer all our queries. We couldn't fault this property and plan to return next year.
Arriving at the villa, which in itself was a minor miracle as the directions were not at all clear to anyone not knowing the area, we were astounded to find the pool an unusual green colour. Lyn, my travelling companion, stepped into the pool hoping to cool down. The next thing, she slipped on the top step , fell, and in doing so injured her knee. She was in considerable pain which necessitated a visit to the nearest hospital in Valencia where she was informed she had sustained a sprain to her knee. What a great start to our fortnights holiday!!
The villa details advertised that internet was available. I had no idea how to access this, there was no information available in the villa and consequently had to ring my husband in the UK to ask him to make contact with Carlos, the owner, and ask that he contact me with the internet details. I sent an e-mail to Carlos, the owner, asking that he send his pool maintenance person to sort out the problem as the entire tiled area in the pool was extremely slippery and clearly was not right.
Chris arrived the following morning and announced the problem was called "yellow mustard algae" and was very difficult to get rid of. He spent 45 minutes cleaning the pool, spreading various chemicals, and said he would come back the following day to check all was OK. This "very difficult to get rid of" was obviously not too difficult, as one attendance of just 45 minutes was all it took to eradicate the problem.
The description of the villa as appeared on the Owners Direct web site is not entirely accurate. The "countryside view" was in fact a derelict area which housed a donkey ! A noisy creature to say the least. The "mountain view" was so far in the distance, binoculars were needed to experience this vista. A "quiet peaceful location" it was not. At about 4pm daily, dogs would announce their presence and keep barking sometimes until 2am. We were then treated to a blasted cockerel/chicken choir in the early hours of the morning which again sometimes continued throughout the day
The drive from the gate to the parking area is so overgrown with shrubs there is danger of scratching a hire car.
The cleanliness of the villa and grounds are very questionable.
Sadly I am not been able to complete my review due to lack of space, but there is more
A fantastic gem of a villa
Myself 2 adults and 4 children stayed at this beautiful villa for 2 weeks in august. The villa was clean and tidy with all the amenities needed for our stay. The outside area was very spacious with a large swimming pool which we all enjoyed also the kids loved the trampoline and playing table tennis. In the evenings I enjoyed getting bbq out and cooking a few steaks. The gas stove in the outside utility room was also a perfect way for making paella. All in all this villa was perfect for our families holiday stay, I would definitely recommend this villa
Super quiet getaway
This villa is perfect for the family looking for a quiet holiday. The facilities within the villa were exceptional, we even had cushions to make sure the poolside snoozes were extra comfy! Although there's no air conditioning, the fans provided were more than sufficient. The kitchen is fully stocked with all sorts of utensils and gadgets - everything you might need to cook up a family meal.
Clean & well maintained with some nice touches from the owners (Gin & tonic in the fridge when we arrived!) it had everything we needed for a lovely relaxing holiday, and more.
In terms of nearby attractions, we didn't find any local restaurants though there were a number of little bars. Beaches were etc. all within driving distance and it's less than half an hour from Valencia which is perfect if you do fancy a night out or some sightseeing.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending this villa as a place to stay and we would happily return ourselves.
A place to relax and soak up the sun.
This is a wonderful family villa. It is in a quiet corner of Godelleta, near Valencia, and has a very large outdoor space around the property. Children will never be short of things to do in the grounds. The pool is immaculate. Everything was very clean and well thought out. The owners could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend this villa. Valencia was a particular favourite....a most interesting city.
Great pool, outdoor eating area & covered terrace
We stayed in this villa early in the season but had some great warm weather and the kids were able to make use of the lovely pool. The large outdoor terrace area was perfect for getting out of the sun and having evening drinks. Inside the bedrooms are nicely furnished and very clean. The kitchen has all the equipment you could need - but we were taken with the outdoor kitchen area where we cooked a lovely paella and then ate a great meal outside. The villa felt very secure and the grounds are enclosed which is useful if you have young children.
The location is good with a supermarket within a short drive that has a lovely tapas bar next door. On booking the owner was very helpful.
All in all a great place - look forward to returning.
