Private & Quiet Country Villa + Small Welcome Pack - *see Offers*
Country house with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and swimming pool in Xativa, Spain
Booking cost: £0.00
From £314 per week
A private pool and gardens so relax anywhere without being overlooked. Go for a long hike or short stroll. Bring your bikes and go cycling. 10 minutes to the major road for cities, culture or beaches.
With woods on 2 sides, an apricot farm in front (sometimes visited at weekends) and the drive to the other side, it is a private haven to relax in the gardens or chill by the pool and watch the sun go down on the mountains.
The cheap rail network is only 15 minutes away so get to Valencia for only 11 euros return. Valencia has everything you would expect from a city but there are many other towns worth a visit like Bocairent and Xativa.
One of the national pastimes in Spain is walking. Take one of the many sign posted walks around the mountains, from a short stroll to a long hike, visiting lakes and historic churches and monuments on the way. The area also has many cycling routes through the mountains and countryside so bring your bikes. No need to put them on your car, just set off. Then cook with the rosemary & thyme from the woods, pick a lemon or lime for your drinks and then siesta by the pool.
Depending on the time of year, other fruit and veg, may also be available for you - peaches, grapes, tomatoes etc. Please help yourself!
Young children can play safely in the gardens and paddle in the pond, whilst you relax with a book in the shade or bask in the sun. But when you want more, the excellent road network is only 10 minute drive away, so beaches and cities can be reached quickly.
The town of L'Olleria is a typical Spanish town and has everything you would need, shops, bars, cafes, hospital etc and 2 very good supermarkets. The chemist at the top of town speaks English.

We had a most enjoyable 10 day stay at the villa. We were looking for somewhere quiet and peaceful and that is exactly what we got. Two days unseasonal rain marred a couple of days at the start and we had some breakdowns in the villa but overall we thoroughly enjoyed sipping a glass by the pool or in the gardens and looking at the fabulous views. The local area is very Spanish (or more correctly Valencian) and you have to find your entertainment but that is all part of the enjoyment. We are booking to go again.
Exactly what it says on the box! Very rural, very peaceful (once u get used to the cicadas). Lovely location ideal for relaxing time yet not that far from coast or bigger towns. The free phone SIM is very welcome but be aware the service is very very patchy. The owners are extremely helpful. The plums off the tree were the best ever tasted!
A pleasantly situated splendid villa. It is located between Valencia and Alecante and this particular fact let us explore the beautiful seashore and even some mountain areas nearby. Our children enjoyed the pool very much. Overall our family had a wonderful holpday..
Brilliant place for a lovely quiet relaxing holiday. Beautiful clean pool. Both grand children were swimming like fishes by the time we left. Deb, the local manager is only a phone call away should you need her. Lovely garden is ideal for relaxing and having an alfresco meal and our grand children found it an excellent place to play and stretch thier imagination.
We have just got back home from a fortnight holiday at this lovely house, with my partner and three boys, ages 6, 14 and 15. Prior to arrival, Angela the owner was so helpful, promptly replying to all my emails. We managed to get lost (note, despite Sat Nav) and in the early hours of the morning Angela did not complain when as a last resort we had to phone her to get directions. Her manager Debs was at hand if we needed anything and she was very helpful too.
The house itself is as described we absolutely loved the pool and spent many days just chilling out in and around it. I had been a bit concerned that the older boys might get a bit bored, especially as there is no Wi-Fi at the property, but they didn’t and in fact really enjoyed our most relaxed holiday ever! The house was well equipped. It is not especially spacious inside but the lovely conservatory area made it feel much more so. Aside from the pool the biggest selling point was the garden, It was so lovely, I really enjoyed wandering around always finding something new, the outside eating area was great and the solar lights at night were really pretty.
The town itself L’Olleria was not particularly interesting but very functional and has several supermarkets –I really liked the Mercardo. You definitely need a car and there are some nice places to visit nearby, Xativa is a lovely town with a great medieval area and castle. You can also catch the train to Valencia from there which is a must visit. We spent one day (30 euro return for the whole family) but if you wanted to go to the Bio-Parc which is supposed to be amazing or the Aquarium two would do it justice. The seaside is about 40 minutes away by car Gandia has long sandy beaches and nice places to eat.
I am sure there is lots more to explore in the area, but to be honest it was very hot and lazy days beside the pool where very appealing, which also as bonus made it one of our cheapest holidays ever! I would highly recommend this property, particularly if you prefer a more authentic Spanish holiday way from the resorts aimed at British tourists!
