Our villa was our home until we moved into an old farm just half a mile away. Consequently you will find the furnishings far above what you would normally find in a holiday villa, because this is truly a holiday home. With a light modern Spanish feel to the interior design it affords every comfort.. With wardrobes in each room there is plenty of storage for personal effects that allows you to feel at home. Les and Julie who look after the villa and you our guests are always at hand and live locally in the village, just ask and they will be there for whatever you need. They can point you to best places to shop, eat, the best beaches, in fact they will show you the best of everything, or leave you to your own devices, you decide.

The views, the views the views, and then the garden, just paradise. The BBQ with a vine covered area and large dining table & 6 chairs allows for long lunches and even longer evening meals. The front porch of villa also has table & 6 chairs, being raised you have uninterrupted views of the pool, gardens, orange groves and far off hills.. The garden is fully fenced with established plants & palm trees, large gates secure the area. With the pool right there please don't forget the little one's, children must be accompanied at all times. There are gates on the terrace which helps to secure the house from the pool area but this would not be enough to deter a determined child - you must take responsibility for any children using this facility. But then you know that.

The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
Spanish countryside, beautiful views from villa. Lots of historic areas in close by Oriheula which has strong Moorish roots has lots of old architecture, including monastery on the hill - this is a good walk but worth if for the view of the area.
Also worth a visit although a drive of around one hour is Cartagena when you can sit by the harbour and watch the cruise liners dock or go up in the lift to view the old ruined castle. Sierra Espuna which is inland is beautiful for scenery, wildlife and lots of good walking - plenty of places to eat at the end of your walk.
Elche is also around 40 minutes drive and again historic place with lovely old buildings - well worth a visit. You must not miss the unique Mar Menor, the inland sea, close by this a the mud lakes, led the child i you surface and cover yourself in the sulphur mud and lay i the hot springs to wash it off at San Pedro.
San Bartolome is essentially a Spanish village with bars of which some offer food and a pizzaria. San Bartolome enjoys a festival during August which lasts for four days over the weekend - would have to check for dates - the village hardly sleeps and the music is LOUD!
However you can escape back to a peaceful holiday home. Oriheula has numerous festivals through the year and these can be checked via the Tourist Information for that area - the Moors and Christians procession which is repeated throughout the local villages is well worth seeing - much bigger and better than anything we see in England and goes on forever!
