We stayed at the Villa for one week at the beginning of May 2013. The whole process from initial enquiries, to booking and then turning up was a very pleasurable experience thanks to the open and speedy communication from both Tex and Mandy.
We travelled with 7 adults, 4 children (3-8yrs old) and an infant and the villa accommodated us all comfortably with room to spare!
Upon arrival Tex was on hand to meet us at the villa and there after the guided tour, along with tips of what to do and see while in the area.
During the first few days we had questions and requests for Tex and he was fantastic at getting back to us and assisting us with our requests.
The villa itself is fantastic, we were looking forward to this trip for a long time and it certainly lived up to expectations. Much like other guests we spent 90% of our time outdoors, making use of the pool (despite the weather being a bit nippy), outdoor kitchen/bar, bali house and of course we made full use of the BBQ.
Indoors there was masses of space to move around in, the three showers were great and the living area was a great place to sit at night.
We did use the indoor kitchen…but only for the laundry, nice area at the top of the villa to hang out clothes and to enjoy the morning sun too.
For those who like to be active, I personally made use of the running machine and weights, all in very good condition and with an excellent view to enjoy.
The area itself was really great, lovely beach, the port and the fantastic bars dotted along the shore between the beach and port. Visit to Valencia is well advised as is a drive along the coast to Benidorm, great views with twisting roads.
Our group also rented bikes from Xabia Bikes near the port, amazing service and very very good bikes. Beware of the inclines…having lived in Holland I needed a new set of legs but views from above the area out to the sea are well worth the hurt! Didn’t play golf but there are also nice courses in the area.
All in all this was a great break away with a fantastic villa with everything we needed. We would have no hesitation in coming back.
PS. For those BBQ enthusiasts, as Tex about the small supermarket (open Sundays and national holidays) they have great meat for the BBQ, large veggies and items from the UK, DE and NL. We found it much better than the larger supermarkets.
