About Villa Jax

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)

Paradise Revisited!!

  • 5 of 5

We have not long returned from another absolutely fantastic two weeks staying at Villa Jax!! As always, everything was just perfect. I don't think we will ever tire of the beautiful scenery surrounding the villa - it is just so relaxing and peaceful which only makes it so much harder to return to reality!!! We can only reiterate our previous sentiments and thank Jackie and Terry, once again, for making us feel so welcome and allowing us to share in their gorgeous little corner of Spain!!!! All one could want/need is there which makes it really easy to slip into holiday mode as soon you walk through door and with Lynne and Paul looking after us during our stay - what more could you ask for!!! There is no doubt, we will be back!!

A lovely relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

The weather was hotter than expected which made the pool and gardens the ideal lazy outdoors holiday. The villa is very well appointed but we did not make full use of the facilities as it was light until 10pm.

Overall two weeks of complete relaxation in ideal surroundings.

Thank you Jackie and also Lynn and Paul

Relaxing holiday in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at quite a few different villas in Parcent over the years but since finding Villa Jax we have returned there for the past 6 years or so. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday - lovely gardens, a sparkling pool and a clean and well equipped house. There is loads to do in the surrounding area and on the coast, but we prefer to enjoy the slower pace of Spanish life in the village of Parcent along with Jalon and Alcalali. We can thoroughly recommend Villa Jax - we've already booked for next year!

Perfect holidays ...

  • 5 of 5

Thanks a lot for 2 great weeks in the Villa Jax! Everything went perfectly, we felt very comfortable. A great location, it is very fast to different beaches.

But you can stay also easily the whole day on site, the garden and the pool are lovely and you can walk to Parcent’s restaurants. Our three kids also loved this place. Greetings from Frankfurt/Main.

Wonderful location in the Jalon Valley.

  • 5 of 5

My wife Alex and I and our two adult daughters and a partner spent two delightful weeks at Villa Jax. We have travelled extensively and stayed in a lot of houses all over the Med but this is a real jewel. Its situation is beautiful on the edge of a small pine wood leading up to a mountain range for your early morning backdrop. The air is so fresh and heady with warm, herbal scents-so different to the UK.

The garden and pool have been very carefully designed, a real labour of love and detail is evidenced everywhere. The planting is superb. Jackie and Terry's love of this place is clear. The gazebo is a delight too as is the night lighting.

We loved the whole area for a mountain walk or a simple stroll. And the locals were cheery and warm.

There is a lot to do too if you wish. We drove over the Coll de Rates to Guadalest early one morning stopping at the mirador to look back over the valley. Quite spectacular too.

Denia and Javea are worth a trip as is the Sunday evening farmers market at Jesus Pobre. We loved the external displays of street art in Gata de Gorgos. The Saturday street market in Jalon is worth an hour. And the Co-op Bodega there is a lovely temptation. Eating in Parcent is fine, we enjoyed some simple an good meals that were inexpensive and fresh.

It was difficult not to be very lazy around Jackie's pool though. It was very hot when we were there and siestas and sundowners were very much the order of the day. Thanks to Paul and Lynne for looking after us all too.

Go if you get the chance. A splendid villa and we will certainly go again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so what a is a real pleasure to me to know you all enjoyed our little piece of paradise. I never tire of its view and you are right the garden has been a labour of love...lovingly tended by Paul in my absence. I'm lucky to have my friends Lynne and Paul who look after the villa and guests so caringly.

A little Spanish paradise

  • 5 of 5

This villa is everything it says and more, it really is a little paradise, peaceful, quiet,beautiful scenery and a garden that is perfect.

The villa as always is clean and well presented and equipped with everything you need, plus a wonderful pool, the only complaint we have is that we always make plans to do other things and end up not wanting to leave the villa.

Thank you Jackie for sharing your little piece of paradise with us, and also thanks to Lyn and Paul who look after the villa, for your help,information, and friendliness. Cant wait to return.

Keith and Jacqui M

Parcent Village, is a jewel in the Jalon (Xalo) Valley. Surrounded by vines, fruit and almond trees - an endless sea of pink/white blossom in spring. Walkers, cyclists, bird watchers and climbers love this area. Peaceful lanes and way marked tracks you can explore direct from the Villa. It is an excellent base for combining sea, beach and sporting activities with driving, riding (horses or bikes), or just roaming the surrounding mountains and unspoiled mountain pueblos. A great place to be away from the madding crowd, yet within easy reach of the coast and golden beaches. Villa Jax is 3-4 km from the historic villages of Alcalali, Murla, and Orba. Explore the dramatic scenery of Costa Blanca interior. Its an easy 10-12 min walk to Parcent village for bread from Noria or tapas at Bar Casino and the Co-operativa or one of 5 excellent restaurants. Visit a Bodega in Jalon and taste one of the famous wines- one produced locally for the Spanish Royals.

Other Activities: Wine tasting. flea markets, climbing, walking, cycling and bird watching
