Firstly, you do need a car for this Villa. Plenty of choice of car hire in the airport and the roads are good (use satnav on your phone). Plenty of parking at villa.
Paul the owner, we found to be very hospitable and was always at the other end of phone if needed. It was a hot week when we stayed and the pool was definitely needed. The Villa had lots of amenities for all ages, especially the Wi-Fi which came in handy for the kids and adults as mobile data signal was very slow around Villa.
There were definately places in the Villa where you could escape from the heat.
There is a lovely comfy seating area looking out to the pool to relax throughout the day and night. Plenty of sun beds too.
There were plenty of supermarkets close by in Sant vicent del raspeig for any big food and drink shopping.
We caught the Tram into Alicante one day which was fairly easy and cheap.
In a nut shell, it was a good choice of Villa if you don't mind driving in a foreign country as you will definitely need a car.
Came back yesterday from a week in the villa and we have had the most excellent holiday. There were 3 generations staying in the villa and there was plenty of room for us all to enjoy family time and room to have some space when needed too. The pool was a god send and kept us all entertained for literally hours. The BBQ was awesome and fully equipped, we had plenty of crockery and cutlery and having 2 fridge/freezers was brilliant to cope with all the drinks and ice creams we needed to keep cool. The only downside was that the numbers on the cooker front had rubbed off so judging the temperature was trial and error, but simple enough so not enough to be a issue. Would highly recommend hiring a car as the main food shops aren't close enough to walk. A huge thank you to Paul for helping us on out with extra time on our last day when he didn't have to. Thank you, from the burnt ginger one :o)
I chose this villa because it had everything we needed in a holiday villa for 12 family members. All rooms are great sizes. Layout is great. The best bit is the pool. In it all day, with enough loungers for everyone. In a great quiet location with lots of outside space.Had a great week. Wish we could of stayed for another week.
