"EXCELLENT VILLA FOR LARGE FAMILY GROUPS" Tripadvisoer Review - 18th Aug 2014 "stayed for 2 weeks at the end of July and throughly enjoyed the villa. Pool area very spacious and plenty of chairs/tables and umbrellas. Safe for children as we could close the gates to the pool area. Plenty of outside space for them to run around"

Sean Hodges July 2014 - "Just returned after 2 week stay. Lovely villa, well equipped and well kept. The pool was probably the cleanest wherever we have stayed, absolutely sparkling. The Housekeeping Team really helped us when we broke down in our car one night, really really greatful for them heling us out"

5* is just not enough!!!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give this place 10*!!!! What an amazing villa!!! We had such a wonderful holiday here, everything has been thought of, you will want for nothing!!! There was 9 of us (including 2 kids) and so this property was perfect, all the bedrooms in both the main house and the annexe building were spacious and well equipped. We never used the kitchen in the main house as the 'outdoor kitchen' was so fabulous and had all the utensils, space and seating we needed. The outside space is beautiful and we saw some amazing sunsets whilst dining alfresco! Pool was cleaned twice during our 6 day stay and the guy who cleaned it was a real top bloke and so friendly. The pool was a welcome time for chilling out in the high temperatures we had during our stay and it is so great that there's a gated entrance to the pool area, superb when you have kids, they were safe to play without us worrying they would go near the pool unsupervised. Seeing the hot balloon rides pass over the villa at the weekend was fab, they were practically in touching distance and the passengers gave us a 'hola' as they floated by!

The photos for the villa impressed us before we even got there, but on arrival we were blown away, the photos don't do it justice!!! If you book to stay here you wont be disappointed!!

The whole villa, inside and out is spectacular, clean, well designed, beautifully decorated and well equipped. The local area is great, Catral & Dolores are lovely little towns, far away from the 'tourist trail' and great for that authentic Spanish vibe.

Huge thanks to Carlie and team for being such lovely people to deal with, we will definitely be back!!!

Amazing beautiful villa in spain

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in july. It was an amazing place. The owners could not have done more to ensure the comfort and happiness of their guests. The villa is equipt with everything you need. Beautiful, comfy and spacious. Lots of areas to have peace and quiet if required. The outside kitchen is amazing. Everything you need. All appliances including tv and wifi worked very well. The air con has timers which we found really useful when cooling the rooms down for bedtime. The pool area is gorgeous. I took my 3 year old grandson and because the pool area has gates that lock, i felt he was safe. There was lots of toys and floats provided for him aswell. There are steps into the pool so he could play safely on them with his armbands on. There is lots of shade around the pool and the pool was cleaned several times whilst we were there. The 2 out buildings are lovely and spacious and decorated nicely. It is lovely and quiet and i would defently recommend this villa to a large family.

Fab Villa and great owners

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay, villa is perfect and the property size is even better. The outside kitchen is amazing and well equipped with full kitchen, Barbie inside and out with huge table and large flat screen TVs and also sound system. I really can't fault the place with the large pool and another 2 self contained rooms for extra guests. The owners Carlie and husband Tony were a great help and anything I needed in way of just local interests as nothing was wrong with the villa at all.

Once again thanks for a great stay.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

Just 30 minutes drive the impressive Andalusian style Villamartin Plaza where wild parrots perch in the Palm trees above contains over 20 restaurants varying from Italian, English, German, Spanish, Mexican, Austrian, Chinese cuisine to name but a few, and these serve food both indoors and outside in the summer months in the delightful courtyard. For those not wishing to eat, there are also a number of bars within the vicinity.

Those loving to shop, should check out the newest shopping Centre to the Costa Blanca, La Zenia Boulevard.


The nearest beaches are El Pinet, La Marina or Guardamar Del Segura, at 15 minutes drive from Catral, other beaches available are Santa Pola 25 minute drive, and many more blue flag.

At a relatively short journey to the superb beaches of Guardamar and La Marina, the location has magnificent views inland towards the beautiful mountainous landscape in the north.


Car Hire Essential

25 minute drive from Alicante, transfers/taxi companies can be recommened

50 minute drive from Murcia Airport


15 minute drive from beaches

5 minute drive to Catral town centre and Dolores town centre with shops and bars and supermarkets

Close to AP7 motorway with direct access to surrounding areas

Further Details:

Near the historic palm city of Elche lies Catral, which is a beautiful small Spanish town located near the mountains. At first Catral seems to be a tiny village but very soon you realise that it is anything but small.

One of the many villages of the Vega Baja, Catral Alicante has a population of approximately 6,000. Its original Moorish name was Al-Quatrullat which was given to an irrigation channel leading to Orihuela, and passed close to the village.

The nearest beach is only 15 mins away by car. Nearly all the beaches of the Costa Balnca are blue flag, meaning not only clean seas & white sandy beaches but also it guarantees that services such as beach bars, sun loungers & the Red Cross are always close by.
