About Franke Knapen

Welcome to our house in wonderful Spain. Actually we're city people that love the quietness of the countryside but enjoy the bustle of the city every now and then. That is exactly why we bought this beautiful house. It has everything we ever wanted: set against a dramatic mountenous backdrop, close by all the ameneties and privacy rules. There are so many things to do here. The walking trails start right down below our house. Golf is just minutes away, Alicante, Valencia, Benidorm, it's all there in reach. The nature of Spain is just stunning. It's not as dry as you would expect, especially not in our region where there is plenty of water because of the rivers Guadalest and Algar. You'll find it very green indeed. Enjoy the silence, the incredible starry nights, the cicades that sing their songs on a hot day. Relax, go to the beach, have lunch up in the mountains or take a hike just around you. I'm sure you love the scenery. Life is great here in Spain.

I'd like the owners to know that we had a wonderful week, late in September. The reception by an elderly couple was very warm and welcoming. The house is superb,very complete and felt very at home. The wheather was as good as it gets. We enjoyed the lovely garden, the swimmingpool and the magnificent mountain views. We can recommend Meliton restaurant in Altea la Vella. Also the old centre of Altea is a must for visitors. Next year we hope to come back, perhaps in spring. Kind regards from Carla

I'd like to thank the owners for a wonderful reception. Babs and Pico were really very kind. Thank you for the refreshments we found in the fridge when we arrived. It was very much appreciated. You have a magnifique house with splendid views and a great pool. We enjoyed it very much and had a wonderful time.

Arriving on this superb spot we were greeted by a very friendly couple who showed us around, told us the do's and don'ts. The owners had made sure that a cool bottle of wine, some softdrinks and a few cans of beer and even a bottle of cava was waiting for us in the fridge. How kind!

The house is very complete and really wonderful and beautifully decorated, surrounded by a vast garden.Superb views from the large and comfortable terras (where you spend practically all your time, lounging, eating etc. Great swimmingpool. We really really enjoyed our stay here. The house is very well located and you can find all sort of things to do close by. Great beaches etc etc. The thing is the house felt so good and we were so relaxed and satisfied by the quietness around us here the incredible wheather that we didn't feel the need to go out a lot. I certainly can recommend this place. This is what I call a holiday. Five stars worth every one of them

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I have to make one correction however, the villa is ill-suited for travellers without a car. It is highly recommended that you rent a car. Please take heed not to rent with Goldcar as lots of our guests have had issues with hidden costs eg expensive insurances and high services charges for gas.

Mixed experience for our 2 weeks stay”

  • 3 of 5

Superb modern and well equipped villa, located in the moutains, hence the weather was often cloudy and rainy even if it was sunny on the coast.

The sea is not far but to have a real beautiful beach, the nearest is Calp (30 minutes by car).

The house is really pleasant for 2 families with a magnificent view.

Beware of several things:

-the swimming pool oveflow was running only at our arrival and never after, hence the pool got dirty quickly (pine needles, insects ...)

- No inventory on arrival by against an inventory made by the guards after our departure = bad surprises

So do not hesitate to look at everything in detail (dishes, bowls toilets, cupboards ...) and read the detailed rental conditions.

- The cost of exorbitant household and not justified for a villa of this standard: dust under beds, clogged shower . We spent more than 1 hour to rewash everything.

because the shower bung was full of hair coming From_former tenants, badly made dishes to be washed again, leak under the sink we had to repair by our own ...

- Metal outdoor chairs "design and expensive" uncomfortable, noisy, very fragile (many times already patched): they break easily and can hurt (beautiful bruises :))

- Descriptive wide angle pictures, made the rooms bigger than in real, it's flattering :) .... but no pb, the house is enough big for 8 people.

To summarize, good holidays, because beautiful towns close to Callosa (Calp; Altea..) but a lot of unpleasant details with bad surprises which tarnished this stay.”

Owner's Response: I'm sory you feel this way. I can assure you that the house is being cleaned by a dedicated staff and that every guest is welcomed in a thouroughly cleaned house. If for some reason this is not the case one should imeadiately report this to our housekeeper as everyone is being told and can be read. We cannot remidy any inconvenience experienced on the very day of departure nor can we accept damages only reported the very last day, for obvious reasons. Of course every rental has general conditions and I'm sure one would agree that no house owner would condone ruined or demolished furniture. That's why there are houserules that everyone must agree to. I can't think of any owner who wouldn't have this. These are normal, verifiable conditions, like no smoking in the house, being careful with fire etc etc. 'm a bit puzzled about the comments on the swimmingpool as you yourself wrote me some days ago that the pool was excellent and the children had a ball. Our swimmingpool is kept in mint condition by Alberto who checks the chemical balance and will clean it. Of course stormy conditions may blow debris into it. Unfortunately the time you were here we had some wind and rain(less than 3mm) The first in three months,which is welcomed since the draught is now going into it's third year. This unfortunately we cannot help. Being just some 9 km away from the coast at the foot of the mountains and not in the mountains does not mean the climate is different. That really is silly. If you find the pool not clean after heavy winds please report so at once and we will take care of it the very same day. There is little point in reporting this here after your gone. We don't want our guests repairing or cleaning stuff. Afterall you're on vacation. We're happy that despite the small inconveniences you liked your stay and found the house to your liking.
