Under an hour from both Valencia or Alicante airport, lies Casa Oliva, a 2013 renovated 5-bed and 3-bathroom family home in its own securely-fenced olive-tree grounds with a 10x5 private heated swimming pool. The villa is located in a quiet cul-de-sac just a few steps away from an idyllic Laguna where you can swim or paddle in icy cold water. Or take a hike into town which is only a good mile away. Ontinyent hosts numerous bars, cafés, restaurants, a small mall, a cinema, etc. The marvellous castle of Xativa, which dates back to before Roman times, and provincial town of Xativa is just a 20-minute drive away. The caves and monastery of Boicarent is about a ten-minute drive. The nearest beaches to Casa Oliva are 35 minutes away at Gandia.

About Philip Jones
Having spent our holiday in the inland Valencia area only once we immediately fell in love with its beauty. Valleys, mountains, close to the beaches, friendly people. We viewed a number of properties and we decided to take the plunge and bought the property in Ontinyent. We did our utmost best to design a completely new house making sure it was absolutely perfect for us to escape the everyday rate race. My wife Ann and I are both into teaching and we are self-employed, running a communications business. Our two kids Lisa and William equally enjoy the "fun Spain". We hope you'll enjoy it too!
Philip Jones purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Philip Jones chose Ontinyent
The area is just perfect! Beautiful views from the breakfast area, across a range of mountains. Enjoying cocktails in the lounge area by the pool overlooking the beautiful views and olive trees. It's as if you're in rural Spain, but in a few minutes you're at the local supermarket. You can even walk to the town centre and enjoy a wonderful menu del dia for as little as 7 Euros. Or have a cup of coffee on one of the many squares and watch laid-back Spanish life moving on. It's all you could ever want.

Lots of positives but some negatives.
There is everything you will need at this villa. The heated pool is really great and the beds are really comfortable. The owner Phillip is really helpful and sort things out quickly.
We had s hood holiday there.
The negatives are the villa needs a really good clean. We found glass under one of the single beds and out by the pool. The couch is really dirty.
The pool area and the furniture need a lot of TLC. Lots of missing tiles in the pool and one of our party slit his foot open on the end of the pool.
The furniture outside is tatty and needs replacing nothing like the photos but none of these things stopped us having a great time.
I would happily tell people that they would have a good time there.
We had such a wonderful time staying in this lovely villa, the location was great and the information pack on things to do in the area was really helpful, we saw and did things that we wouldn’t have otherwise done.
We would love to return back and stay in this delightful villa.
The owner was more than helpful and was just a phone call away if needed, the neighbours were very lovely and helpful too.
All in all a great experience.
Villa over sold.
Enjoyed our stay, disabled facilities were as stated, however, the pictures in the brochure were not true to what was actually there.
Outside area was nothing like shown, the parasol was ripped and torn, covers on loungers were non existent, sunshades on loungers weren't there, outside furniture was a bit tatty and the rattan was broken on some of the chairs, cushions were badly stained.
If you have children be very careful of the staircase on the outside wall as it has nothing to stop them falling through.
The interior of the villa was very good with everything you will need.
Overall had a good stay, lovely quiet location yet close to town and shops.
The house is adequate but we missed the dishwasher more than expected. The poolarea is great and I absolutely loved the nice warm water!
The Villa is lovely, the views are stunning and the pool was well maintained. It has everything we needed.
Philip, the owner has been very very helpful from the start, would definitely recommend.
We'd love to say it was horrible, don't ever go there - just so that we can keep this place as our guaranteed holiday each year, but we can't! We had the most amazing holiday. It's beautifully quiet, ideal location and with the most helpful owner - thanks Phil! Loads seen and so much more we want to see.
Gandia beach is the closest and is a 25-mile drive which usually takes us 35 minutes. A dual carriageway takes you straight to the vast sandy beaches, lounge bars and restaurants.
Ontinyent is spot in the middle between Valencia and Alicante airport, thus making it easy to book a flight. We have flown to both airports and it takes us about 55 minutes to get to the villa. Good thing: toll-free motorway. There is also a train station in Ontinyent. Train travel from Valencia (city) to Ontinyent takes 1 hour and 20 minutes. The property is approximately 1.3 miles from the city centre, situated on the rural outskirts of Ontinyent, a 2-minute walk from the river, Pou Oletta.
Ontinyent town centre is 1.3 miles.
Xativa (castle) is a 20-minute drive.
Bocairent (caves and monastery) is a 15-minute drive.
Ontinyent is a medium-sized town where you'll find lots of shops, a mall, a cinema, lots of squares where you can enjoy a glass of wine along with some tasty tappas. Plenty of restaurants providing delicious set meals at unbeatable prices. We usually walk into town, have a three-course meal at 10 Euros per person.
All shopping can be done in the town of Ontinyent. There are a couple of supermarkets around town. The closest discounter is Aldi which is only a mile away.
