Interaction with guest

Before you go, we will send you a very detailed briefing document about the villa, how to use it and the surrounding neighbourhood and then we send you the keys early in the week before you leave and set up a phone conversation to brief you about the villa and what you can expect a couple of days before you go. We have the villa prepared to a very high standard but, once you are there, we leave you alone to enjoy yourselves. However, our Property Managers are just a phone call away if you find yourselves in difficulties and need help. We love to offer you ideas about where to shop, where to go out to and where to eat from our long experience in the neighbourhood.

Very Good

“A villa which just keeps on giving”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2016

This villa was just perfect for my families needs, the pool area was fantastic as was the large well stocked garden and villa itself. There are so many areas to enjoy such as the two barbecues, huge upstairs balcony and boules playing area that we did not want to leave the villa. We had planned a different holiday which included visiting many well researched attractions in the area but when it boiled down to it, we just could not tear ourselves away from the relaxation, peace and tranquillity the villa offered. We only stayed for a week but will book for longer next time in the hope that we may venture out at some point.

“Beautiful well equiped villa, stunning pool, gardens and interior in a gorgeous location. This villia is a must.”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2015

I booked the villa a year ago to take my Husband, 2 children, Father in Law & Mum. This villa is absolutely stunning. I dealt with the owner Michael who provided great accurate instructions and advice. This has to have been my most relaxing holiday. It's in a very Spanish location which was ideal. We could BBQ or eat out, the choice was ours. Supermarkets were really cheap, we used the Mercadona which had everything from a fresh butcher to a fish monger. There are loads of areas to the villa where we could relax. Pool was amazing and well looked after. Everything we needed was catered for and we would go back again and again. It felt like we were leaving our home when we left we were that engaged with the villa. Thanks so much for such a lovey 2 weeks away.

“Good as ever”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2015

We have been to the property a number of times and always have a great time and this year was no exception. The location is only 10/15 mins from the airport but not under the flight path, 10 mins from the beach and no further for a host of nice restaurants, you will need a car. The area around Santa Pola/Elche is very much a Spanish resort and there are no "English beach bars" or loutish behaviour, but plenty to do, water park (30 mins drive), zoo (walking distance), a new water ski simulator, etc.. The villa itself has everything you could possibly need for a two week holiday, we love the pool at all hours of the day and night, I personally love the garden nice shaded area's for those hot afternoons to relax. The two BBQ's were well used and we never ate inside at all. We can never fault the home or the area and is a great place for all ages to have a superb family holiday.

“stunning villa and grounds”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2015

great property and short drive to a great sea side resort of Santa Pola. Great base for exploring. The owners have thought of everything you may need including pool toys/ books/ bikes/ shopping trolley. great being so close tot the Safari too- loved swimming with the sae lions

“Simmonds Raffo villa gets better and better”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2015

This lovely villa has been made even more comfortable with gorgeous cushions in the lounge area and really smart patio furniture (perfect for relaxing in with those chilled G&Ts while waiting for the fish bought from the splendid Santa Pola harbourside fish market to be barbecued). The villa's gardens are delightful to wander around in with interesting plants including a sweet path lined with lemon and orange trees. Santa Pola and nearby Gran Alcant have seen a fair bit of positive development since our last visit and we enjoyed several excellent meals out locally. Trips to Guadalest and Elche's lovely Huerta del Cura, both return visits for me did not disappoint. Lovely villa, great spot, easy to get to!


Reviewed 28 Jun 2015

What a beautiful villa! The journey from the airport really was on 13 minutes away!! We wanted for nothing, we arrived late evening to find wine, cheese, bread amongst other goodies! I would rate this as the best villa my friend and I have stayed in. Pool and gardens were stunning, the villa too was immaculate and had everything you could possibly require . We will be back next year without a doubt . Thank you!!!

“Large, well-equipped villa in great location with lovely pool and gardens.”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

Raffo Villa is a large villa situated just a few miles from Alicante in a quiet residentail area. The large grounds and capacious interior are ideally suited for large families or groups of friends. All age groups will enjoy the comfort of the villa and delight in the exceptionally large and well-stocked gardens, a real feature of this property. The pool is well maintained and ideal for adults and children alike. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped and there are several delightful outside dining areas. Parking is easy and the villa is very secure. Nearby attractions include Santa Pola, Alicante, Elche and the Beaches of the Costa Brava. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return!

“Exceptional pool, and very helpful owners”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2014

We were very impressed, not just by the size of the villa as it was just the two of us staying in this four bed monster but also the amazing pool, by far in our time of renting villa's, the best pool we have ever found. The owners have a policy of asking the guest to PLEASE wash down before getting into the pool so not to have the need to over chlorinate it leaving you swimming in skin damaging bleach, it is also maintained twice a week, hence its lovely water. The villa is a real must for large families or groups of friends, or even like ourselves just two people desiring to to indulge themselves. The master bedroom again was very big had lovely views over a very extensive and pretty garden, which in turn is maintained by a gardener. In fairness the bed was very unforgiving but maybe that was just us, we do prefer a wider and softer bed and something we will remember to ask when renting our next villa. We never meet with the owners but they could not do enough for us even emailing things of interest whilst we were there as they offer free WiFi, meaning we could keep in touch with home and ask for help should we have needed it. Every morning I picked fresh figs from the tree to have with breakfast, they where so delouse and already I miss them so much. The location for us was perfect near enough to town if thats what you want, but in the country surrounded by farms, we loved it. We also received a very nice welcome pack to tied us over until we could reach the shops and stock up for ourselves. It is a brave person who rents their home hoping those who visit will respect and care for it as they would do their own home. A few things we noted had wear and tare, but by far as very experienced renters of villa's this one comes out near the top of our personal rating..


Reviewed 24 Jul 2014

This is our second visit to the villa and once again not disappointed in any way. We took three teenage children and an 18 month old baby girl. The house itself has lots of space, very cool downstairs and aircon upstairs and very very well kitted out, we wanted for nothing the whole two weeks. The outside has the pool (grandaugher loved it, we all did) and huge garden area with palm trees for shade when needed. The pool is well maintained always very clean, outside shower, sitting area and ample sun beds. The garden has a large grass area and a further landscaped section with olive, lemon and fig trees and all well maintained. There are two outside BBQ's, covered area's for eating outside and a garage to keep the car cool. We spent many a full day at the home, relaxing, swimming and enjoying the warm evenings sat outside. You do need a car, its only 15 mins from the airport (but not under flight path) and about the same to Santa Pola where there are nice beaches, restaurants and some shopping. We love the area, it's not in a "tourist trap" lots of locals/Spanish holiday in the area, eating out was very reasonable and we thought food and drink from the supermarkets were cheaper than home. The Rio Safari zoo is a ten minute walk away, (though you wouldn't know it from the home) the grandaugher loved to see the flamingo's and Peacocks at the entrance when we walked down before it opened. Tip if you want to go we went at 1030 when it opened stayed till lunch time came home for the afternoon and went back at 5 till 7pm when it was cooler, the shows were almost empty and the animals a lot more active than the height of the day. We would certainly have no hesitation in going back again, if you are looking for somewhere to relax, in comfort and quality away from a town or lots of other people this is the place to go.

“Wonderful villa - certainly recommended!”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2014

We absolutely love this villa. This is our second time - and it is truly a home from home. Our daughter loves that fact that we can walk to the zoo. It is ideally located for Santa Pola, but nicely away from all the mayhem of the town center. The villa is a traditional Spanish style, which is tastefully furnished and the gardens are lush and mature. We had a great time, and would highly recommend Simmons Raffo villa!
