About the home
El Chiquito sits high above the tranquil Orba valley overlooking the orange and lemon groves famous in the area. The villa is surrounded by spectacular mountains and has the Denia coastline directly in front, which is approximately a 15 minute drive away. It has been architecturally designed to ensure uninterrupted views of the landscape with all bedrooms and the main living area looking straight out to the coastline. Ideal for families or couples who want to enjoy spending time relaxing at home as well as exploring what the area has to offer. The villa is not overlooked by any other properties and has its own private salt water pool. There are three separate terraces as well as a private fourth terrace off the main bedroom upstairs which also has the benefit of a jacuzzi In addition there is a BBQ area and alfresco dining for 6/8.
The villa has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and offers everything you could hope for in a contemporary home. We have done our best to provide as many creature comforts as possible particularly with families in mind, making it truly feel like a home from home. There are some toys for younger children, a flat screen TV showing some satellite channels, DVD player with a selection of films, a Wii and music stereo together with a selection of CD's, available for times when you simply want to chill out.
With regards to local amenities, there is an excellent picina bar / restaurant run by a family of Italians only 10 minutes walk away from the villa, which has tennis courts, a play area for younger kids and large swimming pool, open during high season for anyone wanting to do some serious exercise!

This region of Spain benefits from a good climate all year round allowing holiday to be taken at any time. With Denia as its nearest town ( approx 15 minute drive) you also have the advatage of being near to an authentic Spanish town with no seasonal fluctuations with regards to restaurants shops and bars. Denia has a wide range of excellent restaurants, and prices range from cheerfully cheap to very expensive ( including a two star michelin restaurant in the centre of the town) Additionally, the exclusive newly opened marina in Denia caters for all tastes and pockets. iI you want to experience resorts which have the tourist market ion mind, you are within easy reach of places such as Javea, Morira and Calpe which all have excellent beaches, retaurants and safe swimming for children.
Inland there are some interesting places to visit such as Vegel ( 20 minute drive) where there is a safari park, Fuentes D'algar where there are waterfalls on route and Guadelest which is very pretty if not a bit touristy.
The Orba area
Orba itself is a small unspoilt Spanish villiage with winding streets and several coffee shops and restaurants . There is an excellent spa/salon run by an English couple offering Elemis massages, facials, reflexology pedicures and manicures as well as hairdressing and there are two small supermarkets as well as several local food shops where fresh produce can be purchased. Depending on what time of year you go, there are frequent fiestas held in the village including a bull run.....and these always finish with specacular fireworks displays which can be seen clearly and enjoyed from the terrace back at the villa.

We stayed at the villa in August with our 3 children (aged 11, 9 and 6). The villa itself is fantastic - inside there is a comprehensively kitted out kitchen and excellent bathrooms and living space. The swimming pool, BBQ and outside area with beautiful views make it difficult to leave! However, if you do, the beaches along the Denia coast are lovely as is the lovely outdoor pool and pizzeria in Orba. Definitely the most beautiful villa we have ever stayed in.

We've just come back from a week in El Chiquito.
We had the most amazing week there.
The villa is to the highest standard you could imagine and the location just fantastic.
We were looking for a great location with peace and quiet and boy did it deliver!
The master bedroom and bathroom are straight out of a 5 star boutique hotel - just lovely and designed to the most superb specification.
ALL windows have electric blinds which keep the light out so you don't get woken by the early rising sunshine.
We opted to pay for the use of the upstairs hot tub - it's brilliant, like having a massage in the sun overlooking a beautiful vliew down the valley to the sea in Denia. I cannot recommend this more highly - worth the small cost.
The living area is fab and opens straight out onto the pool which again is perfect.
ALL of the furniture (even the barbeque) are very high quality.
We lazed about, played with the kids and on an evening (more often than not) went to the local Italian which is really good value. Great food at the best price. Less than 50euros for a meal and drinks (along with wine and two very, very large Sambuca's!!!!)
Julia is lovely to deal with - nothing too much trouble.
We are looking at booking again because it's simply the best villa we've ever stayed at both location wise, standard and for the peace and quiet.
So many times the internet can fool you with pictures that don't transmit to reality when you arrive.
Believe me - what you see on the El Chquito site does not do it justice. It's that wonderful!!

Thank you so much for your review. great to know that other people enjoy it as much as we do!
