650 square meter tradition 1885 years old Spanish villa with picturesque setting near the mountains, the river, the city, and the beach.
Take your breakfast outdoors, walk along the Xúcar river, get lost in the orchards, or sip tea in the garden as you share our spectacular family home with 18 of your closest friends and family members, plus you, of course!
The original home dates to (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) of traditional Spanish villa style join with a contemporary addition of 150m2—a bright space which has alternatively housed a yoga studio, artist residences, intimate musical performances, and large festive gatherings.
In total, the house has 1 triple bedroom, 5 doubles, 1 bedroom with two twins, 1 with a single twin, and 1 loft with a double bed (and two extra twin mattresses available on the side).
The home has two kitchens—a central kitchen on the ground floor with a refrigerator, a microwave, a toaster, a gas range, and a wide selection of paella pans for daring chefs ready to try the local specialty rice dish. The secondary kitchen is on the first floor, with a two-burner stove, a smaller refrigerator, and a washer + dryer. There are 4 toilets, 3 showers, 2 bidets, and 1 small tub.
-Spread out and play chess or read in the upstairs library, where you will find hundreds of books to browse in English, Spanish, Catalan, German, French, and Italian.
-Enjoy the sunny first-floor lounge to catch up on your writing or surf the web.
-Play piano on the baby grand on the ground floor.
-Sit around the fireplace, a favorite destination in the cooler months.
-Take a walk or bring your bike and pedal along the miles of country roads in the famous orange orchards of Valencia. Our land extends 60,000 m2, fully bordered by more orchards.
-Cool off in the aboveground pool.
-Find the secret spot to paddle down the river in one of our one-person kayaks (we have 2).
-Enjoy fruits right off the tree; orange season is November through June; meddlers and plums are ripe in May and June; figs await in August and September…the list goes on!
-Start a one-on-one game of basketball on the half-court (watch out for the ivy!)
If you’re able to pull yourself away from all of these experiences, the seashore is a quick 15 minutes by car (10 km) and a beautiful hike around the monastery ruins at La Murta is just 10 km in the other direction.
We have taken great care to preserve the original appearance of our family home. Period furniture, antique lamps, traditional tile floors, and wood beams give the house special character. You may find that there are some things that look and feel, well, old—know that our intention is just that and we have specially curated this style. While we have Wi-Fi and satellite TV—we’re usually too busy talking late after dinner to turn it on anyway. Our toilets handily do their job, but they don’t like paper. And though you might not find a matching set of twenty plates, there are plenty of blue-and-white patterned dishes for everyone. If you are looking for a peaceful setting to reconnect with friends and family, enjoy gorgeous sunsets, and sip a glass of Spanish wine, you have come to the right place. If you are looking for LED-lights and a chef’s kitchen, this may not be the perfect fit. That said, we really want to make your stay the best in can be and please let us know what we can do to help. Welcome to the countryside and enjoy your stay!
