Overview

The Villa is situated in the La Chismosa area of Playa Flamenca on a quiet gated residential complex.
The complex is long established and has mature trees and beautifully maintained garden areas and walkways.








THE VILLA
The outside areas at the Villa are a particular feature. The ground floor terrace is fully tiled, has dining for 6, and a BBQ all under the shade of a mature fig tree. The whole area of the garden is surrounded with Cypress hedging which gives some seclucion and privacy.
The 6 metre by 4 metre L shaped pool has a stepped shallow end and a deep end of 1.8 metres. It is maintained weekly.
The front door of the Villa opens onto the Dining Room which in turn leads through to the Lounge,Kitchen and main ground floor Bedroom.Stairs up from the Dining Room lead to the second Twin Bedroom.
There is air conditioning in both bedrooms on a coin meter.( to cover electricity cost only!)

Less than a five minute walk is an outdoor swimming pool complex with a bar, dining facilities and crazy golf which can be accessed for a small daily fee.


The nearest bars and restaurants are a 5/6 minute stroll as is a small (corner shop type) supermarket. A wide range of larger well known supermarkets are less than 5 minutes in the car.
A longer walk of some 20 minutes will reach the more lively Playa Flamenca complex with every bar and restaurant combination you can imagine.


Three Blue Flag sandy beaches are within a 5 minute drive - Punta Prima, Playa Flamenca (the nearest) and La Zenia. All have a bar right on the beach, you can hire sunbeds and there is plenty of space for ball games. La Zenia is particularly good for watersports and equipment hire.
To fully enjoy your stay at this villa we recommend car hire.

We provide all linen and towels (except beach towels) for your stay.
The Fig Tree Villa has a wood burning stove which makes this an ideal choice for the slightly chillier months in Spain.
If this Villa is booked we do have a further Villa with a private Hot Tub and communal pools on a complex.
Please see Sueno Villa Ref 19437.

If you have any questions we are more than happy to discuss them with you personally.

Stayed Wednesday 13 August 2014 with Family
Just got back from a weeks stay at Fig Tree Villa. Both the villa and the grounds were beautiful, and combined with the super pool, they made for a perfect family holiday. The size and shape of the pool, meant that it was ideal for the whole family, as the children (5 & 6 yrs) were within a manageable distance from the sides, whilst my husband & I could swim properly around the perimeter likewise, with the deep and shallow ends. The Cypress Hedging meant that we felt secluded, and the contact that we did have with a kindly neighbour was positive - she came round to inform us it was a national holiday that day so wed be aware of shops closing. The roof-top terrace was an ideal viewpoint to survey the surrounding area over a quiet drink in the evening, or for a relaxing sunbathe during the day. We were reluctant to leave our peaceful, private villa but we like to explore so on one day, we made use of the pool & crazy golf complex that was a 5 minute walk away. We also ventured out to La Zenia beach (5 min drive) which was in a lovely area and sampled the Fishermans Paella at the restaurant overlooking the beach - great way to end the holiday. Were not normally shopping or mall people but, even we, appreciated how well thought-out and planned the Zenia Boulevard was. The kids loved riding round on the pedal / motorised animals. It was clean, air-conditioned, with cooling vapour sprays, and there were shows to be seen, restaurants and on the top floor, amusements for the children. We enjoyed a lovely day at Playa Flamenca beach, where the bar had all the food, drink, buckets & spades required! Local bars and cafes (5 min walk) meant we didnt need to venture out too far in an evening & some provided entertainment for the children where we could keep a watchful eye over them but enjoy a peaceful drink! We also made use of the lovely brick-built BBQ to cook some local fish. The villa was equipped with everything we needed. The pool was maintained both on arrival and mid week. The owner, Mark, was extremely kind & helpful. Would definitely recommend this villa to others.

2 week stay 13th-27th July 2013. On first arriving at Fig Tree Villa around 4 hours before check in we was allowed to enter the villa early so that was a great start and very welcome after a long trip and early start. First impressions of villa where good but soon became clear that you should never judge a book by its cover, only 2 sun beds by pool and the villa is supposed to be equipped for 6 we found 2 very dirty old sun beds on roof top terrace which we ended up carrying down ourselves. The roof top terrace could be a beautiful place to sit later in the day when the sun goes down unfortunately no chairs only a very dirty old wobbly table and the terrace was extremely dirty the only time we used it was to hang the washing out. On looking around the villa it soon became clear that it only every had a quick clean up before you arrived and for this your paying 70 Euros as on opening the louver wardrobe in the main bedroom the dust was so thick it looked like it was wearing a fur coat, dust and hair in almost every corner of every room, old food wrappers under the settee, cherry pips under the bedside table I could go on and on. The other things we noticed was plug sockets not repaired just taped up, holes in the plaster cracked floor tiles and even curtain poles just mended with sellotape I really did start to think that the owner of this property was just in it for the money as opposed to making a great place for people to have a great time away from home for a couple of weeks which a lot of people have to save hard for all year round. On our first day there we sat to have some lunch around the table by the pool and my daughter sat back on one of the chairs and the back snapped however this is probably due to the sun weakening the plastic and making it very brittle we informed the villa manager but we was not charged for the breakage so for that I was thankful. The kitchen sink became blocked after 1 day and we reported it and was told someone would be round to unblock it but after 4 days of waiting and having to pour the washing up water down the toilet we went out and bought some sink unblocker and with the help of a plunger this helped a little by the end of our 2 week stay the sink was still blocked. We as a family of 2 adults and 2 teenage daughters have stayed in many villas over many years in Spain as we love it but felt a little disappointed with this one which is a real shame as all it really needs is a bit of money spent on the repairs rather than taping everything together and hoping for the best also could do with a good old spring clean, would like to finish on the good points though as it is in a lovely area has a fantastic pool and some very friendly neighbours overall it is a very nice nice villa with bag fulls of potential.

this holiday was booked quite last minute and we were looking for something quiet and private and it was totally perfect for this. Everything about the place was exactly as described. the pool was an absolute highlight along with the weather. the villa itself was clean and tidy and it was a lovely touch to find a bottle of wine in the fridge when we arrived. Just one small change that i would suggest - the roof terrace sunbeds have seen better days and really let the look of the terrace down. thanks for a lovely time

Another fantastic Villa, a shame not all visitors treat the place with respect. The previous guests had messed with the pool leaving it extremely dirty, fortunately Ian and Barry are absolute stars and visited multiple times PER DAY until the pool was crystal clear again, really you cant fault the service. Villa has everything you need, dish washer, microwave, washing machine, tv, dvd, stereo etc and has just had aircon installed too, a lifesaver as it was incredibly hot while we where there. Have to recommend the Rose & Crown pub in the shopping centre too, good food and the owners a top bloke. If I had to make a criticism it would be the tiles immediately round the pool (not the patio) are like ice when wet would defiantly recommend the villa to anyone, shame I dont have any holidays left for this year :(

A thoroughly enjoyable stay at Fig Tree Villa for our silver wedding anniversary. The fig tree has been cut right back and we did not suffer from ants to the extent we did last year. The pool was beautifully clean if a little cold - but it was mid September! Recommended.

Lovely clean villa within a quiet established urbanisation. We found the property manager Ian extremely helpful and when our hire car fell through he was willing to take us into Torrevieja a couple of times for a few euros so we could get a change of scene and expore a little. He aslo taxied us bakc to the airport at the end of our stay. Ian is brilliant and a real asset to the villa. Hint - you really do need a credit card in Spain for car hire a debit card will not do! Although in a quiet location, there is the Playa Flamenca complex within a (hot) 30 minute walk with bars, restaurants and entertainment and a couple of bars and supermarkets within a few minutes walk of the Villa. It is therfore perfeclty possible to have a good holiday without a car, but nevertheless we would recommend one to enjoy your holiday to the full. The beach is to far without one, for example. A couple of downsides: despite being called Fig Tree Villa, the fig tree really does need to come down. The rotting fruit that fell from the tree evey day during our stay in September attracted too many flies and ants for our liking and the garden needs the grass cutting and the hedge trimming. Also we were concerned that the pool was a little cloudy which from our conversaion in broken German and E

What a fantastic villa!! This was our first venture into booking a holiday direct through the internet and it could not have been better. The villa was so well equiped that we really only needed to take our clothes and extra towels, everything else you could require had already been thought of and put in the villa. We would advise car hire and also purchasing an up to date tourist map as the roads seem to be changing daily! The whole family enjoyed the peace and quiet that this villa supplied and the kids (and us) loved the pool. The entire experience was fantastic. We would highly recommend this villa and the renters who supplied all information you could ask for and were very helpful to anyone. Thak you and hope to see you again.

The directions were a little confusing and could do with being simplified. The villa was lovely and having the pool was a lifesaver with the heat. We found the villa very well equipped - even for the kids. The only thing that it lacked was fans, it was very hot inside the villa and we needed to purchase another fan. Overall it was a really pleasant break and we definitely felt that the house made the holiday.

We had a great stay in this lovely villa. Well kept, maintained and in a super area. Shops/ restaurants/pubs all 10 mins walk away and beautiful beaches 10 mins in car. This villa has everything you will need (and then some). The pool is excellent- a great size and depth. The villa doesnt have air-con fitted (does have a portable unit) and we found this the only draw-back as temp reached 34 degrees at times but we had a super time and would recommend. Even the directions from airport were spot-on!!!! Thank-you to the owners for helping make this an enjoyable experience.
"We would definitely stay there again" We spent a week at the Fig Tree and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was very clean and comfortable. The private pool was the best part of the property and we would definitely stay there again. Just being able to sit in the private garden and swim at anytime was a real bonus after spending the days viewing houses. There is a barbeque too which is great for people who dont want to eat out all the time. The house was equipped with everything necessary for a carefree holiday. This would be an amazing holiday place for anyone with children. Its less than a 5 minute walk to a supermarket and a couple of bars – one of which had excellent customer service and served wonderful breakfasts. The owner of the Fig Tree has been incredibly helpful before, during and after our stay answering all our queries regarding Spain and we would recommend the Fig Tree to anyone wanting a lovely place to stay in Spain 1st October 2013 from Richard.

the villa was in a great location nice and quite and wasnt to far from the beach and local shops. the villa inside is fantastic well looked after and decorated to a high standard. the outside was really nice to and the pool was really clean and maintained whilst we were there to which i thought was great but over all what a brilliant place and guys who run it we will be visiting again. :))

Our first impression of the house was comfortable, quiet and clean. The Pool ,when clean ,was good having 3 kids with us ,it helped alot. The property is a little run down and all i can advise is that when you arrive check eveything in the property. We have just returned home and been advised that the owners are making a claim for light in the pool which was broken before we even got there. And if you hate insects be warned there are lots at the fig tree villa

Peaceful, luscious pool, handy for walking to local bars restaurants and shop - car hire was needed to get to the fabulous beaches. Roof terrace affords view of sunset and the outside shower was a bonus too. Thoroughly recommend to a couple wanting a week or twos R&R.

We had a brilliant week at this Villa. Within the villa there is everything you could possibly think of - including all of the things required for a trip to the beach! The pool was very clean and was used daily during the hot July week that we were there. The location was fine, within walking distance to supermarkets, bars and eating establishments. We would have to say that a car is a must have if you wish to see the surrounding area or visit the beaches. One downside to the Villa is the airconditioning or lack of, the large ceiling fans did little to help with the heat and we ended up buying a small stand alone fan to sit beside our babys cot. But all in all a lovely relaxing week was had. Many thanks!

We found this villa very well equiped, clean and with comfortable beds. The area was blissfully quiet and secluded, with an excellent Indian takeaway a short walkable distance away. I think a car is a must if you want to explore or go to the beach or shopping. Ian who met us at the airport was an absolute jem showing us were everything was and taking us shopping. Thanks Ian.

This was our first time privately renting a villa and I'm glad to say it was a pleasant experience. The owners were quick to answer any questions we had and provide information. Our "meet and greet" were also very friendly and helpful, only a phonecall away (although we never needed to). The villa was great and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Our daughter loved the pool and used it practically every day. She's also a bit of a telly addict, so the kids channel kept her quiet on occasions. The complex is well maintained and generally peaceful, with only the usual domestic sounds around you. The neighbours were either friendly or kept to themselves. The villa is very close to the complex entrance and we never had a problem parking. No worries about security either. We hired a car for this holiday and I'd consider it very advisable. You can walk to the local bar, restaurant etc. from the villa (about 10 minutes) and the villa doesn't feel remote at all. But to get around Orihuela, a car is just easier and much more economical than taxis etc. plus you can travel further afield very easily on the generally good roads, and there's usually plenty of parking around. We would definitely recommend this villa. If you can get some cheap flights and hire a car (we used Hertz and found them one of the cheapest) I think it would be very comparable to your typical package holiday, and a lot nicer!

We had an amazing time at the fig tree villa it is quite secluded but that is what we wanted really. You probably would be better off with a car to stay at this villa but we managed fine without one some places are a bit of a hike to get to, but as it was such a nice friendly area and not commercialized at all it was nice place to walk around.We didn't want for anything in the villa very well equipt. The rep's that met us out there were lovely people and very helpful when we needed them. Would definatly go there again in a heartbeat in fact didn't really want to come home thankyou for a wonderful time.

The only thing I thought was a bit misleading was distance to beaches you could not walk to them.
Owner reply:

Thank you for your review.We have checked all our advertising details for this property and they all state a 5 minutes drive to the beach.Our other two properties are closer to the beach and are within walking distance, this possibly led to some confusion.

When we arrived at the fig tree villa we were greeted and shown around. Overall the villa was clean and tidy. It was Situated in a very residential area and wouldnt say the area was heavily commercialised by tourists. This meant it was lovely and quiet, ideal for relaxing by the pool. The beach wasn't far by car as were the local supermarkets, and the beach was georgeous. However this villa was not really close to very much and if you didnt hire a car it would be difficult, to find places to eat. If you are looking for shops and tourisim then i would say this villa isnt for you, however ideal for relaxation and peace and quiet. we enjoyed our stay and the welcome pack of coffee wine and milk was welcome after the journey from the uk.

This is a lovely property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely will be back again. Very peaceful quiet location but all amenities close in walking distance. We hired a car which was an excellent idea as we could go off the beaten track to other towns for shopping and food.

Oh what a wonderful break we enjoyed at the very well equiped,beautifully clean and fresh, Fig Tree Villa.It exceeded our expectations.We were delighted to be soaking up the sun in January....yet very appreciative of the heating as the evenings became chillier.Hiring a car was an excellent idea, it enabled us to eplore the area and experience some fabulous restaurants, further afield.
