Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Terry and I bought this villa as a retirement project in 2004. It had no pool or formal garden but 8 lovely olive trees. Spending 2 years rebuilding terraces and raised gardens, we were delighted that the soil was fertile and everything we planted thrived, with a little TLC. Our hard work paid off and we have successfully rented the villa to our summer visitors over the past 7 years, many of whom return every year. Genuine reviews from our guests are testiment to this lovely part of Spain and our little piece of paradise. I still enjoy working on the villa every Spring to keep on top of maintenance and gardens to ensure the villa is kept in tip top condition. Hope you enjoy it too.
(Unfortunately Terry passed away very suddenly 2013 and is sadly missed by all those who knew him. But all his hard work which he got so much pleasure from, is evident in his little piece of paradise - Villa JAX. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
Why the Owner Chose Javea, Moraira and Denia Area: Our reviews tell you everything.
