About Ricardo Oliveira
I am a Brazilian native, British citizen and Spanish adopted. My professional life was into the tourism business but now I am enjoying the rural life with my dog, chickens, and ducks. My hobby are theatre and concerts.
Ricardo Oliveira purchased this Farmhouse in 2004
Why Ricardo Oliveira chose Millena
Beniqueen is set in a calm and pleasant environment with beautiful surroundings. A perfect spot for anyone who needs disconnect from the urban life.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Usually sunny and pleasant warmed during the Springs and Autumns. Hot during the summers but cooler during the nights. Winters can be surprisingly warm during the days. Beniqueen is very peaceful and quite. Ideal if you are looking to disconnect from the urban zones. We appreciate the tranquillity of rural environment.

Beniqueen is THE best
This was our first time visit to the Valencia region of Spain and Benniqueen met up to all of our expectations. Ricardo (the host) speaks excellent English and provided everything we needed to make our stay relaxing, private and at ease. Communication was excellent prior to our booking and he provided superb directions from Valencia airport.
The accommodation is set in totally peaceful and tranquil surroundings, with the apartment having everything needed for our stay. Ricardo provided fresh peaches from the orchard each morning and excellent tips on where to shop and eat locally. The supermarkets and local patisserie are fairly close to beniqueen and a short car drive can offer some spectacular views and scenery. We had many laughs with Celestina (his beautiful and well trained dog) and it is very clear his many years of work at the property simply add to providing amazing accommodation for guests. If you’re looking for tranquility, calm and peace, Beniqueen is the place to go and it can also offer an ideal base for a more action packed holiday. Our only complaint is that we were not there long enough! But WE will be back and were very sorry to leave.
GRACIAS Ricardo... te veo de nuevo pronto. Annie & Phil (from WALES) x
Fantastische bestemming voor rustzoekers
Wij, stel 70plus, hebben 2 heerlijke weken gehad op het landgoed van Ricardo en zijn hond Celestina.
Het huis was schoon, comfortabel en smaakvol ingericht en ook het bed was prima. De keuken was compleet en prettig om in te kokkerellen.
Rondom het huis waren er diverse terrassen waar je zowel in de zon als schaduw kon zitten. Het huis is hoog gelegen met rondom prachtige panorama's. Naast het paellahuis bij het zwembad is een klein beschut terras waar je geweldige zonsondergangen kan meemaken.
De omgeving is bergachtig met kalkrotsen en het toeren in het achterland van de Costa Blanca is absoluut een aanrader. Zo nu en dan een bezoekje aan de kust is heerlijk. Voor ons waren Altea en La Vila Joiosa favoriet. Kleinschalig en niet te toeristisch. Heerlijk voor een lunch en wat flaneren op de boulevard.
Ricardo is een vriendelijke man en zijn hond Celestina is zo mogelijk nog vriendelijker. Zij wil altijd pleasen en vriendje met je zijn
Wanneer je houdt van rust en natuur is dit de 'place to be'.
Mogelijk dat we nog eens terug gaan, misschien dan in een ander jaargetijde.

I am so pleased to hear you had lovely peaceful time in Beniqueen. My dog Celestina learned with guests like you how to be grateful and very happy to share our way of life. It is a reward welcoming guests who love nature the way we do. Many thanks for your beautiful review. You are very welcome allways!
A centre of calm
Lovely and remote in a rural environment. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the views are spectacular. We enjoyed day trips to Valencia and Altea and smaller towns. Some days we never left (other than for a loaf of bread) Ricardo is an interested and interesting host, with lots of useful knowledge. Celestena the real owner of the property (a very friendly dog) gave us a lot of attention and we enjoyed walking her among the olive terraces.
I am very pleased to hear you had your rest and enjoyed the day tours visiting the villages and Valencia, the capital. Lovely to hear that Celestina (the dog) got a wonderful review. You are very welcome to visit us back. Many thanks.
Fantastic apartment and host!
We stayed at Beniqueen for six nights whilst visiting friends and the local area. The apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay including a great deal of information on what to do within the surrounding area. The views of the landscape from the pool area are impressive and the apartment importantly stays cool throughout the middle of a hot summer’s day. Ricardo is a fantastic host and will go out of his way to make you feel welcome, including providing fruit grown on his property and eggs from his chickens. He is very proud of what he has built there and I would recommend his place to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful part of the country.
It is rewarding welcoming guests like you and your patner and after it see that my work has been recognised. I would recommend you both to all landlords who appreciate well behaved guests. Many thanks.
Well, what can I say, the most beautiful place, relaxing, lovely scenery. The host Ricardo is extremely kind and helpful and a truly lovely person who will do anything to make you feel comfortable, he loves his home and has worked very hard making
it what it is.The apartment has everything you could possibly need and Ricardo is there to help with anything at all. His house is in a wonderful area and I honestly didn't want to leave, it's spectacular. Ricardo is a great animal lover and has ducks, chickens and his 2 dogs Celestina and Preto, they are such gorgeous dogs and love people ( they are in charge lol) . This place is one for dog lovers . All in all this was the best place I have stayed in all my years travelling . If you like peace and relaxation and dogs this is the place for you. It is up in the mountains with fantastic views. I am ready to go back now and I only arrived home yesterday!! A car is necessary . I would highly recommend to any animal lovers. I'm missing Ricardo ( one of the most lovely, kind men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting)and lovely Celestina and Preto already. We shall be back!! Thanks to Ricardo..he's amazing. The weather was fantastic too😊😊😊. Charlotte and James Singleton 4/10/17 to 11/10/17.
I'm so pleased you enjoyed Beniqueen and the animals. You both are a wonderful guests and are very welcome to come back. Many thanks for your lovely review.
Lovely apartment in a fantastic location with spectacular views.
We enjoyed a fabulous five night break at Beniqueen. Ricardo is the perfect host, always friendly and helpful, with suggestions of things to do and places to visit. The apartment is well equipped with everything you could possibly need, and the views from the swimming pool could not be more spectacular. Ricardo provided us with grapes from his garden and eggs from his chickens and he certainly made our stay a memorable one. Would thoroughly recommend a stay at Beniqueen.
Many thanks. So pleased you enjoyed the accommodation, swimming pool and views. The female dog Celestina is missing you. You both are a wonderful guests. Enjoy the rest of your holiday in Spain.
