A unique property one of only fifteen masias, (traditional Spanish farmhouses) Vista Alegre is located along the beautiful scenic route between Ibi and Alcoi in the Vinalopo region.
Situated on the outskirts of the charming town of Ibi, with views of the Parc Natural del Carrascar de la Font Roja, this late 19th Century building was lovingly renovated in 2005. Original features have been restored and natural materials used. Wherever possible the walls are part exposed stone and part sand-coloured render combined elegantly with solid wood ceiling beams and tiled flooring capturing the atmosphere of the past.
Without even leaving the grounds of Vista Alegre you can choose to rock in a hammock while the scent of rosemary and pine lull you to slumber or grab your binoculars and make tracks to the nature trail in the ravine. All to the background of distant chiming bells courtesy of the local goat herds.

"A great apartment"
This spacious apartment is set on the top floor of an attractive farmhouse but entierly self-contained. The bedrooms are cool and comfortable while the two bathrooms are in good order. The kitchen is very large and well equipped and the space contains a large dining table that can seat 8-10 very comfortably. There is a large tv and soft sofas, great for having a siesta on. There is also a laundry and line at the side of the building which is available for use.
The grounds are fairly extensive and encompass a lovely pool which the children loved. There are lots of chairs and a pool house. The pool overlooks the mountains and valley. There is a fantastic walk up the mountain to the rear of the property. The local town of Ibi is about twenty minutes walk, slightly hilly but not difficult. It's worth it for the shoes and incredible ice-cream.
