Spacious 3 bedroom villa with private pool with views across the valley and only 10 minute drive to beach. Looking to get away from it all; this is the place to stay.
Although Valle Vista is located on the edge of the traditional Market town of Pego, it has the advantage of a tranquil location looking towards the Serra de Mustalla mountain range. All around are citrus, almonds and cherry groves for which this area is well known for growing. You have the added bonus of been able to walk into Pego to enjoy the traditional Spanish restaurants, bars and shops. The fantastic sandy beaches of Oliva are only a 10 minutes drive away.
The villa was built in 2006 and has been furnished and equipped to a high standard. The open plan lounge and dining area is light and airy and is stylishly furnished with leather sofas and dining room furniture. When the children need a rest from the sun, they can play on the Playstation 2 or x box 360, pop on a dvd or watch their favourite tv programmes on the new flat screen TV, courtesy of Sky. The lounge has large patio doors that open onto the pool and terrace. Remember your ipod/iphone and chill out on the terrace whilst listening to your favourite music with the Gear4 ipod dock.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would require for your stay, you can even leave the Marigolds at home as there is a dishwasher provided.
The master bedroom and second double bedroom both a have door leading onto the spacious terrace and all three bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. There is a bathroom with a shower over the bath and a separate shower room.
Ouside there are many private terraces where you will enjoy all day sunshine for the sunbathers, or relax with a good book and enjoy the peace and quiet. Anyone interested in birds will not be diasppointed as you can sit and watch flocks of Goldfinches, Siskins, Beeaters, Black Caps and if you are visiting in Spring; Hoopoes! There is a barbecue house where you can enjoy outside cooking and al fresco dining. Watch the sun go down over the mountains with a glass of Sangria: a perfect end to a perfect day!!

Time to explore
Our area is known as the orange blossom coast with the vast fertile citrus groves of oranges and lemons.
If you drive 15 minutes inland you will find the Orba valley and the Jalon Valley where you can explore the winding streets with the typically Spanish white washed houses. You could sample the locally produced wines including the famous Moscatel at the local bodegas. This is without doubt the real Spain!!
The Costa Blanca is a very popular region with visitors. Miles of award winning soft white sandy beaches shelving gently into the Mediterranean this makes a good choice for children. Benidorm is an excellent choice for wonderful sandy beaches and vibrant night life. There is an Aquapark nearby Terra Mitica and for a night out visit Benidorm Palace.
A 20 minute drive will take you to Denia. A bustling cosmopolitan town with many bars and restaurants. You can even take the ferry to Ibiza.
Trains run between Valencia and Gandia, or a one hour drive will take you to Valencia the region’s capital. This stunning city is a must to visit, whether it is museums or the oceanographic or just shop till you dro p (into the nearest tapas bar!!) Well you have to experience the Spanish way of life!!
For a traditional Spanish night out with a traditional flamenco show a visit to Viva Espana is a must situated on the N332 20 minutes drive away.
We travelled with our 4 year old son to this lovely villa in Pego.
Before travelling we asked if the Villa could be ready a little earlier than 4pm as our flight got in a lot earlier, the owner was extremely accommodating and said he would arrange for us to be in at 2pm, we arrived at 1:15 and the Villa was ready for us which was excellent. The owner supplied excellent information before we travelled with directions and instructions to get in. The Villa is a little hard to find but the picture he supplied really helped.
As we went for a really relaxing week, we decided not to book a car and got private transfers instead, although it is only a short walk in to town, I would opt for a car next time just so we could get full supplies up to the villa!
The villa itself is one of the best equipped we have stayed in and the views are outstanding and watching the sunset every evening was a real treat.
We travelled in August and this is when a lot of the smaller restaurants and tapas bars close (the owners go to their beach houses apparently) so it would be nice to go again when they are all back open, that said there was plenty of choice and the town of Pego is charming and authentic. Market day (Thursday) was bustling and had a really lovely feel to it.
If you are looking for a relaxing break in a stunning location, in a traditional Spanish town, I would highly recommend. I would definitely travel back in the future.

The directions and map received from the owner and website made travelling from Alicante Airport to the Villa Valle Vista direct and stress free. Villa Valle Vista is a beautiful villa, which is maintained to a very high standard. When we arrived the internal and external areas were spotless, the villa was very welcoming with lovely decor in all areas. The kitchen was fully equipped with all necessary utensils and utilities. The outside kitchen by the pool was a real treat for bbqs and just eating alfresco whilst relaxing by the pool. There were fantastic and picturesque views from the pool side patio, the sunsets were amazing. The property and area description was accurate and we walked in to the town on several occasions, although up hill on the way back to the villa it was still only approx 15 minute stroll.
We recommend the area and villa.
Thank you for a fabulous time!

We stayed at Villa Valle Vista for 3 weeks and had a great time. The villa is very impressive on its own but the setting, overlooking the orange groves and the mountains in the distance, is stunning. The villa itself was very well appointed and was presented in good order and immaculately clean.
The villa is on the outskirts of Pego but only a 10 minute walk from the middle of town (which is easier than driving as so much of it is one-way). Not a tourist town but boasts a large and really helpful Tourist Information office that is well worth the visit.
There are plenty of bars and a handful of restaurants in town but we chose to eat in most days, encouraged by the ‘barby’. We did venture out to Fillols restaurant on a couple of lunch times and had excellent meals and good value for money.
We would highly recommend Villa Valle Vista.

Stunning views of inland Spain as well as a glimpse of the coast from the terrace, where we whiled away hours around the pool and barbecue house. A great base from which to visit the numerous gorgeous beaches which can be reached within a 15-30 minute drive. Would certainly return.

September 2011, second visit. Absolute perfection. Beautiful villa, well appointed, very quiet situation just outside Pego, a five minute walk to the town centre. Half an hour from the coast by car if you want beaches.
This new 3 bedroom villa is furnished to a high standard. The private pool and terraces offer lovely views over the valley and orange groves. It is only a 10 minute stroll to Pego,a traditional Spanish town, yet only a 10 minute drive to stunning beaches. Only 1 hour away from Valencia
