Set in its own private gardens, Villa Santa Lucia enjoys an enviable position amongst the wonderfully enchanting hills of the Spanish countryside and iconic Montgo National Reserve. Its location provides the peace and tranquillity needed to unwind, yet is just a 15-minute walk (1 mile) away from the beautiful old town of Javea. Boasting a large terrace, table tennis table, pool table wifi, computer games and glorious 10-metre pool with Roman steps, this stunning villa has something for everyone. The pool is not overlooked, ensuring complete privacy.
Villa Santa Lucia is a real family retreat in which any extended family will immediately feel at home. Life at the villa centres on the large enclosed naya on the second floor, overlooking the garden and the pool. Being south-facing, you can open the three sets of doors and breakfast while watching the sunrise and listening to the view. You can escape from the mid-day sun while keeping an eye on the children in the pool, and close all the doors in the evening to enjoy the cosy views of the illuminated garden.
The villa has a well-equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, cooker and microwave oven. It also has everything the coffee-lover needs to indulge: a French coffee press (cafetière), a stove Italian coffee maker, and an espresso/cappuccino machine. If you like eating at home, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the wide range of supermarkets on offer, as well as places to eat at the villa. There is a formal dining table in the large open-plan living area upstairs, around the coffee table in the enclosed naya, al-fresco in the separate open naya, or around the beautiful stone table under the palm tree in the barbeque area.
Inside the villa, the artist owners have combined the rustic country-house feel with a modern twist: traditional Spanish wooden furniture with modern sofas and an increasing amount of original modern art work. The upstairs lounge also has a TV with surround sound (including all of the English Freeview TV and radio stations), a DVD/CD player and an aux input to plug in your own MP3 player. For winter visitors, there is also a wonderful fan-assisted log fire, making games nights or simply nights with a glass of wine something to remember. And for the warmer evenings, the lounge/dining area has its own high-powered air-conditioning unit.
Villa Santa Lucia is a ‘split’ family home with upstairs and downstairs having separate entrances. Access to the main upstairs is via a short flight of stairs at the rear of the property by the parking area, or via the beautiful bougainvillea-clad external staircase overlooking the pool and terrace. Whether you have a large family with children, or two separate families, the split nature of the villa makes it ideal for holidaying ‘together’, but with your own space. This villa is sadly not ideal for those with severe mobility issues.
Completing the upstairs of the property are two bedrooms, one double, one twin, and the first house bathroom. Both bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes and are fitted with ceiling fans and high-end air-conditioning units, to guarantee you a good night’s sleep. The bathroom comprises: basin, toilet, bidet, and a bath with shower.
The ground floor has two large bedrooms, one twin room, the other with a double and a single bed. Again, both rooms have high-end air-conditioning units and generous wardrobe space.
The main downstairs living area is currently set out as a second lounge, with its own TV for watching DVDs and playing computer games (though please note, this TV is not connected to the satellite system). The two sofas provide a great break-out space for the children, or somewhere to relax while you’re watching your family play pool on the American-style pool table, new for 2016.
As well as the main living space, the downstairs includes a small dining area with double doors which open out onto the terrace in front of the pool. Equipped with its own fridge, this is an ideal space for storing refreshments to make those hot days by the pool that little bit easier. This room also acts as the house laundry, being equipped with a washing machine and tumble dryer. A second house bathroom completes the ground floor, comprising: basin, toilet and a shower.
The outside area is the jewel of the villa, with its large terrace, garden and 10m kidney pool. With Roman steps into the shallow end and 2m deep end, this is the ideal pool for relaxing, having fun, or getting used to snorkelling before venturing into the sea. It is also ideal for learning to swim, for which flotation aids are provided. And the large hedging and privacy gate ensure complete privacy.
Natural shade is provided by a magnificent magnolia in the centre of the terrace and there is a growing range of beautiful flowering shrubs and trees that blossom at different points throughout the year.
The outside area is completed by a fabulous table tennis table – guaranteed fun for all the family, and a little bit of exercise too… Basic table tennis bats are provided, but if you play regularly you would be advised to bring your own. Ping-pong-balls are provided at the start of the season, but we cannot guarantee that they won’t have been lost before your own visit. So come prepared, or you can buy them very cheaply in any of the many Chinese bazaars.
Javea has three very distinct personalities: the Old Town, the Port and L’Arenal.
The Old Town is packed full of bars, restaurants and coffee shops as well as excellent shopping, banks, museums and markets. If you want to take the car, you’ll be there in just 4 minutes and there’s plenty of parking in the underground carpark at Plaza de la Constitución.
If you love eating out, then the Port is a must. With its extensive range of reasonably priced restaurants, the only problem you’ll find is agreeing where to start. The Port also has a very good range of shops including unique décor and curio shops, Chinese Bazaars and art galleries. And you must not miss a visit to the Fisherman’s church. This poured-concrete building is truly extraordinary. The waters around the beautiful pebble beach are wonderfully clear due to the absence of sand, and the marina is great for an afternoon stroll. But perhaps our favourite reason to visit the Port is to have either breakfast or our evening meal at Hotel Javea. This unassuming hotel has a restaurant covering the whole of its top floor with enviable views out across Javea. The food is fabulous, and it is advisable to book if you want a window seat. The Port is just 8 minutes’ drive, 2.5 miles, from Villa Santa Lucia.
The Arenal is uniquely different again from the Port and the Old Town, with its wonderful sweeping sandy beach and, again, it’s seemingly endless array of restaurants, coffee shops, ice-cream parlours and frozen yoghurt emporiums. You can eat extremely cheaply from the side-street pizza take-aways (a must on all of our visits) and the English-style fish and chip shops, or splash out on one of the expensive restaurants. Whatever your budget, you can dine with a sea view. The beach also boasts an excellent climbing frame for the kids and volley ball courts for the more energetic.
For golfers, the beautiful courses at La Sella and Real De Faula are within easy reach. Just over an hour south are the world class courses at Alicante and just over an hour north is El Saler, voted one of the top 100 courses in the world, and ranked number 1 in Spain (2015). If tennis is your thing, then again, there are plenty of courts in and around Javea.
For those who like a little more in the way of adrenaline, why not plan your own go-cart Grand Prix? With race tracks in Javea itself as well as neighbouring Moraira, Teulada and Oliva your family competition can have a distinct road-trip dynamic!
Of course, Javea and Northern Costa Blanca have so much more to offer including: snorkelling, scuba diving, rock diving, walking, markets, water parks and theme parks. And if you’ve ever wanted to swim underneath a waterfall, then Guadalest is a must. Details of many of these attractions and activities can be found in the villa guest pack.
Whatever your interests, from the moment you arrive and crack open your welcome hamper you’ll begin to unwind. Happy holidays..
