Come and relax in sunny Spain. We offer you a relaxing and safe holiday enviroment for you and your family. Enjoy the real Spain, where the siesta is still taken and long lazy lunches are a must and where you will still find the retired gentlemen of Monforte relaxing in the main square, watching the world go by. Monforte offers all the hustle and bustle of a small town, with shops, retaurants and cafes. There is also a small museum and medical centre. And with the local market 2 mornings a week, you can practise your Spanish.

All furniture is of a good quality and provides all the comfort you need and would expect to help you enjoy your holiday.
We are a family who have 3 children, our house is on the same grounds as the finca available for rental. The finca is ideal for families as we have a secure property with electric gate and 3 pet dogs,adding to your families safety. We aim to provide a holiday which is different from the busy holiday resorts but without the isolation you sometimes find with secluded villas. Please ask about our rates for arrival bbq dinner and breakfast options.
That is the best word to describe our stay at Lynda and Justins holiday villa.
Our three teenage children are not into beach holidays any more and so we wanted something that would keep everyone (including us) happy for two weeks:
- Our own pool
- Unlimited free internet
- A games area (pool and table tennis)
- Quiet location (very!)
- Convenient for the coast should you want to visit the beach (we didnt)
The villa ticked all the boxes and so everyone was happy :-)
You need a car if you want to do anything as it is in quite a remote location. The supermarket is 10 mins away by car in Novelda (Carrefour and Aldi). We saved quite a bit on our flight by flying British Airways in to Madrid which is 400km away. But the drive down was easy and we were still in pocket after hiring the car and the money spent on fuel.
Was great sat outside every evening watching a video (from the huge selec tion available) on the giant screen.
All in all a great place to have a holiday if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing time in the sun. Will certainly visit again in the future and recommend to others.

We have just returned from staying at Lynda and Justin’s Villa, it is very comfortable, well equipped with free WIFI and FreeView TV. All aspects of the accommodation are well proportioned and in good order. The pool is safe, clean, and within stumbling distance of the fridge in the kitchen. The size of the pool was a bonus as was the pool table and poolside BBQ. It was great just to be able to leave things lying around knowing they were safe and that there was always a sun lounger for you. Everything is on the same level, no slippy steps, the matting surrounding the pool area was great for children and beer affected adults alike. The pool side music system takes an Ipod link, fantastic. Justin and Lynda are there on hand, if you need them, and will do airport pickups and journeys to supermarkets and tourist locations.

We went to this apartment with friends and my little boy. It was large enough for us all to share. The pool area and BBQ was amazing, it really made the holiday. One issue is the property is in the middle of know here so taxis were needed although the owners who live on site are lovely and help with shopping at supermarket and nipping places. I walked to the local town which took me around 40 minutes on a very busy road, it was an experience especially when I got there as there was one bar which was like an episode of the supranos. They were all lovely though, I struggled to get a taxi home so lady from shop took me home. Property is remote and a car would be essential if you wanted to get out and about but if you want a pool side holiday this place is lovely and relaxing. Owners have goats and chickens which my little boy liked to look at. The owners were nicest people and English.

My family and I have returned 3 days ago from Villa Rus,Monforte,and We were so sad to leave.From the moment We arrived it was comfortable and informal as We were greeted by Lyndas husband Justin at the airport.On arriving at Villa Rus it was everything I had imagined and more,clean and comfortable,very well equipt,very spanish,in an ideal setting,and just heaven...With Lynda & Justin living onsite they were always available if We needed anything.They were very happy to oblige with any trips into Monforte or nearby shops,nothing was to much trouble for them,they were all fabulous.Lynda & Justin have 3 children which was great for us as We have 3 children also,so that kept them all occuppied,either swimming in the lovely large pool,in the Casita watching numerous dvds,or in Lyndas house,they all got on so well,it was great.We ate in some lovely places in the nearby area,and the Ice cream parlour in Monforte is a must.In the evenings after our meal or socialising with Lynda and her family,My husband and I used to sit on the terrace of our Casita and take in the peace and quiet,the chirp of the crickets,the scent of the fig and lemon trees,and the serenity of Villa Rus.All in all,the best family holiday We have ever had,with as much or as little to do as you like.We are missing Villa Rus,Lynda & Justin and the children already,We would definatley recommend it to our friends and family,and We will DEFINATLEY be going back! Thank-you so much Fewster Family.

Family excelled themselves - nothing was too much bother went out of their way to make our stay very memorable.
The finca was fantastic and the amenities great - took everything into account you would need.
Family and dogs were fantastic fun - have recommended to a friend already hope it comes off for them - will definitely return no question.
Many thanks to Justin, Lynda, Harrison, James and Emma and not forgetting Guiness, Milo and Kent - regards Rhona, Harry, Penny & Michael x
This villa is excellent value for money. Lynda and Justin are fabulous people and helped get us sorted for shopping and seeing the sights. My little boy loved seeing the goat, kittens and chickens everyday. The pool was great- we used it everyday along with the pool table.
This villa has everything you need- comfy beds, a great shower, homely living area and fully equipped kitchen. We used the BBQ a couple of times too.
The villa is away from shops and beach.
Alicante is around 20 minutes away in a car.
Thank you for a great holiday- we will be back next year without a doubt.

Just returned from 8 days at Casita Rus.....had an amazing time. We took our Grandsons they didnt want to leave! The accommadation is wonderful, very well eqiupped and extremley comfortable. Great swimming pool and terraces. Was even treated to fresh new laid eggs, and the family just cant do enough for you. Would deff recommend to anyone..young..old....families or just couples.
Had booked this villa through the recommendation of a friend and was so glad I did.
Friendly owners who went out of their way to give us information and tips for our Easter break.
3 children on site kept my kids occupied and helped them with their Spanish!
Great big swimming pool not one of those pocket sized things, could really go for a good swim
Nice BBQ. children played table tennis and basketball so they were well occupied.
I liked the fact that the pool is covered overnight so I had no need to worry that the children would get out and fall into the pool, same with the electric gates, not chance of the children wandering out or more importantly strangers gettting in.
Hope to go back
