Excellent property Fantastic owner
From the start of the booking enquiry to leaving after our holiday there was absolutely no problems whatsoever.
The pictures on the website do not do this lovely spacious property justice.
John, the lovely the owner could not be more helpful. He offered to pick us up and when we said we were hiring a car he met us at the airport and we followed him back to the home in our car.
Our flight arrived on an evening and I sent an email to John to enquire if there would be a local shop open, he offered to get the shopping we wanted. It was lovely to arrive and find our supplies (including cold beers) chilling in the fridge
The house has a lovely homely feel to it, there is plenty of everything, bedding, towels, crockery, kitchen items, a large fridge and freezer, washing machine and washing lines.
The house is in a very quiet residential area, the huge terrace, patio area and pool are along the front of the house. While we were there (for 7 days in September) I think we only saw 2 or 3 people passing the property.
One of the party had mobility issues (using crutches and wheelchair) and the property was ideal. There is a wet room with shower, no curb from the road at the front and ramp up to the front veranda. There is a tiny step (only 1cm) over the front door frame but that was easily negotiated.
We were hoping for a peaceful week doing very little and that is exactly what we got. We rarely ventured out although did have a trip into Valencia (an easy 20 min journey) and this is a lovely city.
The closest bar/ restaurant (which we didn't visit) and supermarket (this is excellent, it's well stocked, has bakery, fresh fish and meat counters) is less than 5 mins drive but not really walkable so I think a car is necessary.
There was nothing at all to fault about the place 10/10 for the property and 10/10 for John. I would highly recommend this place and would love to return sone day.
We arrive at the villa as a family of 9. The villa was up to expectations, it was clean and well maintained. The owner provided good costumer service and very welcoming. The pool was refreshing and well kept. It is very welcoming and convenient for big families. I would recommend hiring a car for your visit but if not, there are plenty of places for hire. They had many attractions there such as Arts and Sciences Museum, Bullfighting (very exciting), the beach and much more. There are many restaurants around if you do not want to cook all the time or would like to try some Spanish cuisine. There were many near by shops which you could do shopping (eg. Lidl or comer). Overall, it was an amazing experience, I would definitely recommend this villa and I would go again.
100% Thumbs Up!
We could not recommend this Villa highly enough, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved the get-away-from-it feel of the property. Hopefully we will be able to stay again on our next holiday and explore the local area even more. Very clean and well kept, lovely pool and terrace area and beautiful surroundings. Would recommend having your own transport but this wasn't a problem for us and the local train goes straight to the heart of Valencia! Thank you Villa Mariposa for a very memorable holiday... for all the right reasons!
We had a wonderful time at this Villa, everything was perfect for our family getaway. The closeness to Valencia city was a real plus for us especially as we could use the local train service to save us the drive but the villa is in very tranquil surroundings which makes it a great place to relax too! We will definatly be booking again next year, can't wait!
First class Villa
I would recommend this beautiful villa for its location and facilities. It is well maintained, comfortable and the cleanliness is second to non. The owners John and Judy are extremely helpful and make it there business to ensure you have a good holiday. The location was perfect for its tranquillity and convenient for the local amenities. Although I would recommend you hire a car, it is not essential as there is a local bus and the taxis aren't expensive. I am certainly going back if there is availabilities.
Hemos estado una semana toda la familia, las fotos no hacen justicia a lo bonita que es la casa, y la tranquilidad de la zona.
Un lugar para ir a descansar y desconectar. La piscina genial, siempre ha estado a 30 grados, y la barbacoa, uffff, una pasada.
Además John y Brenda son muy amables, nos atendieron en todo lo que necesitamos.
Además la casa esta a solo 20 minutos de Valencia, muy bien comunicada, y tienes un super a 5 minutos.
Sin duda para volver.
The villa nestles in a small quiet urbanisation that overlooks the famous el Bosque Golf Course near Valencia, but only 10 minutes away from the A3 motorway. This makes it ideally situated for the drive to Coast with it's long stretches of sandy Beaches, or into the important and Historic city of Valencia itself.
The Ricardo Tormo Racing Circuit in Cheste is only a short drive away, along with the Bonaire shopping centre, just outside Valencia, which offers bowling, restaurants, cinemas, and massive shopping outlets. On the otherhand, If you fancy a relaxing Picnic or a quiet Day Trip, the spectacular Albufuera nature reserve is situated only 25-30 minutes away.
Also don't forget that Valencia hosts many Sporting events, such as Moto GP, ATP Tennis, and La Liga football.
Other Activities: Short drive to beach.
Petangue Court newly built on property.
Golf: El Bosque Golf Course entrance situated less than 5 minutes away by car.
