Villa overview - owner's description

Character finca with private pool, air-conditioning and wifi for 8 persons and located in Javea.

Spacious, elegant and romantic, Villa El Descanso, lives up to its name. Meaning “a restful place”, it offers just that…. a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere with plenty of privacy. Those who are looking for that, this villa is for you! Located in the heart of the natural park of the Montgó, the property has a beautiful garden with lawn and fruit trees around the pool.

All on one level, El Descanso has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (as well as an outdoor shower room by the pool). Two bedrooms have private ensuite bathrooms while the other 2 double bedrooms share a guest bathroom.

For relaxation the villa has plenty of areas to sit and accommodate 8 people in different spaces. The lounge has a flat screen smart TV with Netflix and internet access and leads out to a gorgeous covered terrace with more seating and dining areas.

The beautiful fully equipped country kitchen has a large den and access to an open terrace for al fresco drinks and dining.

By the pool there is a lovely chill-out area, providing yet another seating area and fabulous views to the pool and garden.
Just less than a 10 minute drive to the historic town of Javea with its genuine tapas bars, variety of restaurants and all services and a 10-15 minute drive to the sandy beach, El Descanso is a superb family villa to which you will want to return.

- 2 of the bedrooms have ceiling fans instead of air-conditioning
- Although the house is on level, being a traditional finca-style property, you will encounter a step here and there.

Javea is divided into 3 areas:

Arenal (sandy beach) - obviously popular in the warmer months, with plenty of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. The beach is in a crescent shape and is very shallow so excellent for younger children. Beside the canal you can hire a speed boat to explore the Javea´s natural coves and bays, inaccessible on foot. Nearby on the rocky beach north of the Arenal are numerous beach bars and more sea-front restaurants as well as jet-ski and windsurf hire.

The Port - about 2km from the sandy beach you arrive at the port. Still a small picturesque working fishing village, the port has a wonderfully authentic atmosphere with many pedestrian areas where families spend warm summer evenings either at one of the many restaurants or cafés while they watch their children play.

The Old Town - steeped in tradition, Javea´s old town is one of the prettiest villages on the Costa Blanca. Located up a hill leaving the port, this is the original village of Javea and still inhabited by local families. The atmosphere here is "true Spanish" with no sign of souvenir shops and where the local people tend to live, shop and work. The daily fresh food market is in the historic almost pedestrian centre where you will also find restaurants and the real Spanish tapas bars.

Family from London, United Kingdom Sep 2017

We had a fantastic stay at El Descanso and the property is well equipped and beautiful. The space was great inside and outside the property with a lovely view. The TV room had Netflix which we watched a few times and the pool had a ball, net and some water soakers. The whole place was very clean.
We had a great stay but there were a few things we found that could be improved:
It is advertised but only 2 of the bedrooms have air conditioning along with the rest of the property. It seems strange to have missed 2 rooms and they only have fans. It was hot when we stayed and it was hard to cool the rooms down-would be much harder in the height of summer. The property says it is all on one level but in fact it isn't and there are a number of annoying little steps. There were no extra toilet rolls other than 1 per bathroom so we had to buy toilet roll which I don't expect to have to do in a villa.

On our second night we went to cook a BBQ and the gas had run out which we would have expected to be checked before a check in.
The pool maintenance man arrived at 7am one morning and woke us by opening and closing the gate a number of times. The gardeners arrived at 4pm on our last day-we appreciate the grass needs cut but perhaps it could be scheduled for a more considerate time.
The roads in the area are unmade and narrow so going for a walk wasn't very easy. Most properties have large guard dogs which scared our little girl when we walked past.
Overall we had a lovely stay but the few items I discuss above meant it wasn't quite up to our expectations.

This is a beautiful property and it it is churlish to make any adverse comments but our views were as follows. The villa is beautiful, the kitchen perfect and the bedrooms generally lovely - two bedrooms only have fans which struggled to keep one comfortable at night. The pool area is magnificent and the location was fine but you need a car.

The minor niggles were a check-in time of 17.00 and check-out of 10.00. We are used to a check-in of 14.00 and it does mean that is 7 hours one is paying for at an above average daily rate.

The extra charges for a change of bed linen mid-stay were annoying and never used to happen. There were also no tea towels so we bought some and left them there.

However despite the price and the small issues I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. No one wanted to leave and I hope you enjoy your stay.
