About the Owner

Roger and Barbara Osborne live in the Northeast of England. We have owned an apartment in the Javea area for many years and purchased El Pinito in November 2013. It is our home away from home and we are hoping to spend a considerable time here when I retire.

Stunning Villa, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful relaxing holiday, many thanks

The villa is superb, spacious and very well appointed and comfortable. The garden and pool are stunning with plenty of seating areas to view the wonderful views of the local countryside.

There is plenty to keep you occupied, meals out on the sea front at Javea and Denia, climbing Montgo with its stunning views of the surrounding areas.

The weather was superb, lovely and hot which is what we wanted (early August 2016), and we spent plenty of time relaxing by the beautiful villa, the pool, and its gardens, having a relaxing drink My family and I would thoroughly recommend this villa. (Many thanks Roger/Barbara…what a wonderful villa and holiday)

Owner's Response: It is always reassuring to hear that others have enjoyed El Pinito as much as we do. We never tire of the changing views of the Montgo as the sun tracks across during the day and glad that you have found the area as enchanting.

A stunning villa in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very spacious and beautifully appointed. As a family of five, we were extremely comfortable, from the luxurious sofas and armchairs dotted around each room, to the elegant dining area and the large SMART TV. The gardens had a range of seating areas with stunning views, and the pool was beautifully designed and a perfect size. Whilst it was too hot when we were there (August 2016) to do too many activities, we enjoyed several meals on the seafront at Javea and had a day trip to Valencia. But the real attraction of this property is the beautiful villa, the pool, and its gardens: thoroughly recommended.

Owner's Response: The gardens, pool and fabulous views of Montgo are what we fell in love with when we bought El Pinito. We have tried to make it as homely as possible and are so glad that you have been able to enjoy the villa as much as we do. Many thanks, Roger & Barbara

Wonderful Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property in a beautiful, peaceful setting with stunning views of Mount Montgo. Inside is very well equipped with a very good standard of kitchen and bathrooms and good-sized lounge and indoor naya.

The pool is a very good size and our kids loved it. The outdoor eating and BBQ area was excellent, and once the kids were in bed the front patio area was perfect to sit and watch the sun set behind the mountain while enjoying a nice glass of wine or cold beer!

Throughout communications with the owner Roger were first class, who couldn't have been more helpful. All in all, a great holiday at a lovely villa.

Great villa, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa, with everything you need for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

The service was fantastic and the welcome pack was an added bonus which meant we didn't have to rush to a supermarket after travelling all day.

Air conditioning in all the bedrooms not just the master bedroom ensured we all slept well.

It is well located within reach by car of both the beach and the old town. The local supermarket sells the best steaks and burgers.

We travelled with young children who need to be supervised around the pool. It was easy to restrict their access and when they were there the steps made it easy for them to get into the water and they loved jumping off them.

A tranquil find

  • 4 of 5

The reasons we enjoyed our stay in El Pinito were firstly that the house did not feel like a rental property, but someones home with good quality furniture, bedding and a great selection of kitchen equipment. Secondly the garden is well planted with plenty of shade and thirdly proximity to lots of restaurants.

From the Owner

We like the fact that we can walk through back roads to Javea in 25 minutes and wander the narrow streets and stop at many atmospheric cafes and bars for a coffee or glass of Rioja.
