I live in Buckinghamshire, in England, with my husband and our two dogs. We both work full time and really appreciate the opportunity that we have to escape from our busy lives and spend time at our house in Calpe which always relaxes and restores us. We spend most of our holidays in Spain, where we have many friends and have fallen in love with the country.
Sue purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Sue chose Calpe
We love Calpe because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are beautiful beaches, great watersports and beautiful countryside for walking, horse riding and playing golf - all within easy access of our house. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Alicante airport less than an hours drive away.
What makes this Villa unique
Our house is in a quiet residential area yet just a 5 min drive from the fabulous beach. This is our family holiday home; we spend a lot of time here and it is furnished and equipped to a much higher standard than the usual villa rentals which are widespread in this area. Days spent by the pool, with an evening BBQ enjoying the glorious sunsets, are our favorites.

Wonderful property in a lovely quiet location .. perfect for just relaxing by the pool and BBQ
The property was perfect for our relaxed family holiday.
Spent all of our time in the living space outside.
Communication with the owners was brilliant and the booking process was easy and hassle free
So pleased you enjoyed your stay, Chris, and hope to see you again. Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review.
Fantastic Property; even better than the pictures suggest!
My girlfriend and I stayed for a couple of weeks at the beginning of July and it was absolutely fantastic - everything worked, the place was immaculately clean and perfect for a relaxing holiday. We'll certainly be planning to go back!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay, Ciaran. Very much appreciated and we'd be delighted to welcome you and Sarah back in the future.
Just as described and more! A very comfortable family get away with a beautiful pool in a peaceful area. So easy to be able to go into the town but very glad that we didn't stay there as very busy. Great to be able to get back to the villa to relax away from the crowds.Will return.
A super property...
We enjoyed a really good week at the villa. There was nothing lacking in amenities. We intended nothing more than relaxing by the pool.
Some of the restaurant details in the property information were out of date e.g. one was permanently closed. So an update would be good.
There was no contact with any property management personnel but that didn't matter.
If we were to visit the area again we would happily stay at the villa and wouldn't bother looking elsewhere.
David, thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay at our home in Calpe. Delighted that you had a good week at the villa and found it had every amenity that you needed. Thanks also for updating the visitor guide with the details of the restaurant that had closed. Hope to welcome you back in the future.
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks in Calpe in this villa. This is the best-equipped house we've ever stayed in, complete with decent cooking equipment, cleaning supplies, and plenty of dishes and silverware. (I once stayed in a place that didn't even give me a starter roll of toilet paper!) The pool is fantastic; since it is rarely in the shade the water is always a comfortable temp. There are 3 outdoor tables to enjoy meals at different times of the day, plus the outdoor lounge was great for relaxing on hot afternoons while the kids swam. The house has a lot of privacy from neighboring properties, and is very secure; its also very peaceful and quiet. The beach and city center are just a short drive away. If we had problems or questions, all we had to do was call the property management office where the owners' daughter works. The worst part of our trip was leaving this beautiful villa and city! I really hope we can return next year!
Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay at our villa in Calpe. I really appreciate it and I'm so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay and that you found the house well equipped, peaceful and private. I hope that we can welcome you back next year.
Brilliant villa and location
Spent two weeks in this villa could not wish for more very well equipped the location is breath-taking. Close enough to Calpe for eating out etc. but far enough away to enjoy the quiet of the location. Not overlooked, pool has sunshine all days and the villa has so many area's to sit and enjoy peace and quiet. The owner could not have been more helpful as was the local lady manager Jean. So much to see in the area shame we only had two weeks
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay at our house. Really pleased you enjoyed your holiday - hope to welcome you again in the future.
