This Spanish holiday villa near Javea is the perfect getaway, not only because of the gorgeous pool and terraces, but because it’s within a short drive of Cabo la Nao, a 116m-high cape on the very eastern tip of Costa Blanca, where you’ll be able to take in some fantastic panoramic views. The road to the top leads through pine forest, typical of the region, paradise for a nature-lover or a photographer. You will also enjoy the beach nearest this Costa Blanca villa, La Barraca, wonderful for swimming or snorkeling. The whole area around this rental villa near Javea is characterized by fields of oranges and lemons, with an average of 300 da...ys of sun per year. Cool ocean breezes, however, will keep you from baking, and a multitude of pine trees lend the area plenty of greenery.
(800 m2) The most notable feature of this villa is its three-level tower-terrace, open on the ground and first floors via beautiful rounded arches. A spiral staircase leads up to the top level, where you have an open terrace surrounded by railings and beautiful views of the surrounding area. This beautiful villa is located in the midst of a quiet residential area, and both the fenced property and distance from other houses ensures privacy. Here you’ll have your own garden with lawn and palm trees, a built-in barbeque, a private swimming pool (4m x 9m, 2.1m deep), and outside parking for two cars. All the garden furniture you need provides room for dining or lounging out of doors.

At the opposite end of the room, the dining table has seating for six. The floor is stone tile accented with large, beautiful rugs and stained-wood frames around the windows. The kitchen is equipped with microwave, dishwasher, oven, washing machine, and toaster. Two bedrooms each have a pair of 90 cm-wide twin-beds.

The villa was very spacious and in good condition.
Nice pool and quiet backyard. Really enjoyed the open air deck.
Too warm at night. The bedrooms need fans.
We really like the Arenal beach area. The beach was beautiful and the promenade along the beach was filled with wonderful shops and restaurants.

Overall, we were very pleased with this villa.
It is very spacious and we felt in very good condition. Its location is excellent with grocery shopping and bar within walking distance and, especially nice, easy walking distance to wonderful views and some picturesque, rocky beaches, where the swimming was excellent. The pool is excellent and we enjoyed it every day and became quite attached to a crocodile raft that was supplied. Also, we used the barbecue a couple of times, it is also great.
We found the basement bedroom to be damp, but the two main floor bedrooms are excellent.
Very beautiful cliffs, beaches and views. We found Javea quite a "touristy" town, some great restaurants though.

Privacy and quiet.
The kitchen needs some new pots and pans and it would be nice to have dish soap provided.
Small town, great beaches.

The terrace was fantastic for sitting out in the evening and the house was more spacious that I expected.
The views of the coast line were stunning and the locals were very friendly.
