We have had many very happy holidays here and we really do think of the villa as a second home.
The Villa is in a great location for the lots for great places to eat and nice bars. The friendly bar is just what it says and you can get a brilliant Scottish breakfast at the Racing Toast.
Our favourite place to eat at the commercial centre is Leonardo’s really good Italian food and you will get a great curt from Shakira’s.
The local Lidl is excellent with a really good bakery and excellent meat and wine.
The beach is also lovely and about a 10 minute drive and a couple of water parks also a short drive away. The safari park at Elche is well worth a visit if you have young children.
We eat in a lot at the villa the big BBQ is excellent for doing an evening meal with plenty of space in the back.
We spend most of our time in the pool and the conservatory is brilliant as well especially for relaxing at night.
The Villa is always clean and very comfortable and modern.
Strongly recommend for a family holiday only 40 minutes from Alicante airport.

The owners were extremely helpful right from the point of booking and arranged an earlier checkin as our flight arrived earlier and we were travelling with a toddler.
The taxi driver struggled to find the property but as soon as we opened the gate and stepped in we were made up. The layout is ideal for families. A safe area round the back for the little ones to play away from the pool.
The inside of the property is well looked after with tasteful decoration and comfy furniture.
Everything we needed was there.
The location was perfect for us too. It was our first holiday away with our son who was just turning two. The small centre within toddler walking distance was perfect with a couple of restaurant choices, a shop and a friendly bar. Everyone was really friendly, lots of English around who made us feel welcome. The la zenia shopping centre is a taxi drive away but has all you will need and the majority of shops were open despite being out of season. Can really imagine it's a fab place to be in season.
We will definitely be returning.
Don't think about it just book it's perfect.
Amazing Villa Rating
The villa was exactly as the photographs described. The Pool was beautiful and large enough for my husband, 2 sons and myself. The sun lounger area was brilliant as you could relax on the loungers, shower in the out door shower before dropping into the pool. We have rented villas in Spain for 5 years and this villa was the best equipped. The use of the shopping trolley was fantastic to bring our shopping home from the supermarket. All the small touches were welcome, shower gel by the out door pool, loo roll in the bathroom. The Power shower was fantastic and I think I will be investing in one at home. The villa is perfectly designed, the living area is very spacious with 2 large sofas. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything that you would need. All the appliances were top spec. The washing machine was excellent to use. The conservatory was lovely however as we came in July we did not use it, however it would be great addition for Spring/Winter. The outside BBQ area was fantastic and the BBQ was easy to use. We used the BBQ twice and the BBQ dining area was perfect. We did not use the roof top solarium as it was so hot in July (45 degrees around 4pm). Full box of inflatables for the kids to use which was great and the kids loved the big crocodile. Wi fi was fast and well used. The owners Christine and Bill were fantastic, communication was brilliant, I had an opportunity to chat to Christine and Bill on the phone and they were so friendly and genuine. It was an absolute honour to have been able to stay in their villa. Thank you. Ok so what about the area. If like us you really do want to relax on holiday then you do not need a car. Taxi to Torrevieja Promenade was approx. $12 euro from the playa flamenco commercial centre. Taxi from PFCC to Zenia Boulevard was £4.50 Euro. The Playa Flamenca Commercial centre has numerous restaurants and bars, very family friendly. Our favourites were Chinese restaurant (New World) and if you are after an authentic indian curry(hot) go to the Shagrika (I would give Agra Palace a miss). About 15-20 mins walk from here you can hit Saturday Market and Zenia boulevard. Zenia Boulevard is fab, lovely clean shopping centre, with Zara, Benetton, Pandora etc. Not to be missed is the pink ice cream stall, choose your base ice cream and add some toppings (I had strawberry and chocolate) Divine. The mall toilets were outstanding. Our favourite bar was a cocktail bar below the Mini Golf.
Second visit, this time for 6 weeks and again absolutely blown away. Beautiful villa, close to local bars and restaurants, literally 60mtrs, even out of season there are enough open to give a varied choice. Lovely comfortable lounge for catching up with Brit TV, WIFI, fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds and nice power shower. Lots of room outside for soaking up the rays, either by the pool or out at the back, good neighbourly neighbours, what more could you ask for. Will we go again, most certainly, I feel I’ve know Christine for ages, yet we’ve never met. Communications are brill and any little queries sorted straight away by her contacts in Spain. Just brilliant, couldn’t have been happier with location, villa and service. Don’t miss this one.
