Villa Julia is both comfortable and well equipped with plenty of space. We did not realise that the property is in fact two apartments, however this gave us flexibility in where we wanted to be and cook. Plenty of sunbeds and those extras that make it feel like a home from home. The location is good, although the surrounding area is very hilly. There are plenty of places nearby like restaurants and a local supermarket and the local town is very nice, particularly around the Marina. We also enjoyed visiting Calpe which is only 15 mins away with its lovely sandy beaches and family friendly gently sloping sea shore. Clickstay and Interhomes where both very helpful in communications. Overall a nice Villa in a good location if a bit on the expensive side.Read more
What a fantastic time we've had staying at Casa El Romeral. The villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The pool is fantastic, the outside areas are great for dining and relaxing. The location is brilliant, tremendous views, nice restaurants, bars, supermarket and a wonderful little beach just a short stroll away, we could definitely go back! A special mention also to the villa manager Tracy, many thanks for all of your help, you truly are amazing!Read more
A lovely relaxed stay at a very enjoyable property. Beautiful views from pool of Spanish hills and local nature. The property was very well laid out inside and out with great extras such as kids dvds, coffee machine, herbs in cupboard and washing machine. Both owner and manager very pleasant and responsive. Only small glitch was depth of pool at one end but pool itself large and very clean. Excellent value for money.Read more
A nice, clean house in a great location with a spacious outdoor area. The only thing we did not like was the equipment in the kitchen, we would have wished more dishes and glasses and also more pots and pans.Read more
The house is nice, although somewhat smaller than it seems in the photos. Because of bad weather, we spent many hours at home, and thanks to multiple small details we felt almost at home. We only missed being able to tune to a channel in Spanish, since most channels (impossible to retune without a password) are in German. I would like to return with better time to enjoy the beautiful pool and garden.Read more

Villas in Benissa
The quaint, medieval town of Benissa is one of the oldest in the Costa Blanca, just under an hour's drive from Alicante, nestled between the picturesque resorts of Moraira and Calpe, where the famous Penon de Ifach Natural Park lies. Located off the A-7 Motorway, Benissa is known for its historic charms and rural landscape, while the sparkling Mediterranean is just 5km away. As an unspoiled resort, Benissa offers a quieter side to the Costa Blanca where the wild natural surroundings blend with the traditional atmosphere of this authentic Spanish region and the hilly landscape calls for adventure. Discover fruit orchards and valleys dotted with lemon and orange groves, while the 4km of coastline is home to four beautiful white sand beaches; Cala Lobella, Baladrar, La Fustera and Cala Pinet. Perfect for soaking up the sun away from the main tourists crowds, Benissa's coast is lively with marine life, making it a great destination for scuba diving, home to one of the longest running diving centres in the Costa Blanca.
The fresh produce market every Saturday in the Marina Alta area, is a great way to mingle with the locals, while a trip to the walled old town with its Valencian Renaissance quarter and fortified Medieval church will give a sense of the resort's medieval roots. In the evenings, there are plenty of rustic seafront restaurants and bars offering local Spanish delicacies and the chance to enjoy some local and international music; but if you're looking for a buzzing nightlife, you may want to head towards the bright lights of Benidorm, just a 25 minute drive from Benissa.

A beginner's guide to renting a villa in Benissa
The ancient town of Benissa lies 275m above sea level, in-between the northern Costa Blanca resorts of Calpe and Moraira, in the province of Alicante. It has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the region, which is known for its quiet countryside ideal for hiking and its magnificent old town steeped in Roman, Arab and Moorish history.
Bay of Les Bassetes is the best place to enjoy views of Calpe and Penon de Ifach Natural Park, with a mix of limestone rock and sand. This Blue Flag spot is ideal for snorkeling, kayaking and diving, with beachfront restaurants and bars providing all the refreshments you need. Family-friendly La Fustera beach has a lifeguard on duty, where the picturesque landscape is made up of meadows of seagrass and fine natural sand. Pebbled and palm-fringed La Llobella Cove is the most unspoiled of them all, boasting calm waters perfect for a solitary swim.
Walking through the streets of Benissa's old town is a little different to your typical old town square and plaza. Remnants and monuments of past civilisations can be found in every direction, such as the art of the Valencian Renaissance quarter and 16th century Palace of Torres-Orduña, which is also a cultural centre and library.
Aside from the beautiful beaches, family holidays aren't complete without a trip to Benidorm's Terra Mitica theme park, just a 15 minute journey from Benissa by car. We have a wide choice of family-friendly rentals, from beach villas to spacious villas overlooking the mountains, Mediterranean and peaceful countryside.
