'Casa Maja' overlooks the orange groves and pinewoods of a magical valley to the sweeping vista of mountains between Xativa and Simat de la Valldigna.

Vine and pergola shaded garden seats, an arched naya, terraces, balcony, formal and informal gardens and shrubbery are found within the grounds of the villa, where complete privacy is assured with gated security and ample parking space.

From the master bedroom, with its four poster bed, down the marble staircase to the traditional rocking horse for children, 'Casa Maja' is a delight. The spacious lounge/dining room overlooks the swimming pool and has air conditioning, two large sofas, coffee tables, TV, DVD and CD players, a piano, books, movies and music, an antique dining table with six chairs and other antique furniture. At Christmas and throughout winter there is a log fire and central heating.

The uniquely designed 12x6 swimming pool has a special shallow area for small children, a poolside shower and barbecue. The tiny village of Pla de Corrals is within walking distance (if you like walking!)and has two bars serving food.

It is easy to spend days hiking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, playing golf, or exploring the historic sights of this idyllic part of Valencia and the 50 kilometres of Costa Azahar beaches are within 20 minutes' drive. Historic Xativa is the nearest town with splendid castle, atmospheric old quarter, good restaurants and a vibrant night life.

Irish author, Maureen O'Donoghue, offers you a warm welcome to 'Casa Maja' where guests awake every morning to the unspoilt paradise of the real Spain.

"A Little piece of Heaven, surrounded by beauty and peace!"

With Casa Maja We found the perfect holiday setting for our family holiday.The Location was quite remote so the car was essential but every day having been out touring around we looked forward to returning to, the the lovely cooling breeze that could always be found up in Casa Maja. We Particularily enjoyed the spaciousness of the villa, and the beauty and tranquility surrounding it made it quite hard to leave it day or night! Maureen O Donohue was a terrific host and went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect, especially the magnificent pool which was put to great use, fun and games by day and candlelit dinners by the pool by night. We Look forward to returning to casa Maja sometime soon!

"A rare gem of a Villa Holiday inland away from hustle of the coast"

The villa is situated in a stunning location with panoramic views down through the valley. The outside space is expansive and provides areas for sunbathing and shade to relax. The mature terraced garden also provides further secluded spaces. The pool is the largest I have experienced during our Villa holidays, clean and well maintained. There is ample private secure parking for at least 3 cars on site,
This Villa is foremost a home and not just a holiday let and the personal touches can be seen throughout the Villa with antique furniture and paintings giving this villa a unique feel. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything expected for a self catering holiday.
All the bedrooms are situated on the first floor of the villa.
You do need you own transport as this villa is set way out in the country and the nearest large town is about 10Km away.
You will need to do your own reserch to confirm this Villa/location is what you are looking for. we did and were more than happy with our holiday experiance.
