About this listing

Our fresh and modern holiday home, with it's concrete floors and fresh design, is located at a rural location. It comfortably hosts twelve people so come and enjoy the stars at night while making your own fire!

The space

Welcome at Finca Pura Vida.
After 2 years of planning and building, we started our holiday home in 2009 in the rural area of Benissa at the Costa Blanca.
Located between the terraces full of almond and olive trees, it´s a tranquil and private location with lovely valley and sea views, but still only a short distance to all amenities which the Costa Blanca has to offer.

You may bring your dog, or your bike as we are surrounded by hills and mountains, all just starting at your bedroom door.

As our house is located in a private area, be aware of the fact you will be needing a car and that there are no streetlights but just the moon lighting your way!

Alicante airport is approx. 60 minutes by car, Valencia 75 both by highway. We advice you to hire a car at the airport, as you definitely need one around here.

The nearest village is Benissa, at a 8 minutes drive, it is still very Spanish not being at the coast. It has a charming Saturday morning market with lots of fruits and vegetables underneath the palm trees, and of course a few Spanish restaurants. The town offers enough supermarkets and enough branches from different banks.

The closest beach is only a 15 minute drive.
But there is of course a lot more to see, f.e Altea, Moraira or Javea. We are blessed with a beautiful coastline full of little hidden beaches, sandy or pebbled.
In the summer they offer little chiringuitos (wooden bars) to enjoy a drink or a snack, sometimes accompanied with life music.
Or you can just sit between the Spanish locals, whom bring their little picnic tables and coolers to the beach to watch the stars and go for a night swim.

Our house is formerly used by somebody in a wheelchair although there is a little step. Even though the bathroom is spacious, there is no special bar in the toilet, so you will need help with this.

We are surrounded by fruit trees, mainly almonds and olives, but also pear nectarine, cherry, prunes, orange and lemon as we own 170 of them. The plot is 1.5 acre so privacy guaranteed!

The coastal area of Caple, with it's 2 blue-flagged beaches, touristy with restaurants and all amenities, is a 10/15 minute drive.

Moraira with it's 2 wonderful sandy beaches is a 25 minutes by car, as well as Altea wich has a pebbled beach.
Both of these towns have a lot to offer, restaurant and bar wise.

We have a Dutch/English speaking teacher, so a relaxing class can be booked in advance. Prices to be arranged with the teacher, depending on the size of the group.

Also to be booked in advance. €35 euro for an hour.

Beauty: A beautician can come to the house for treatments.

Food: A private cook can be arranged at reasonable prices, or our Spanish neighbor can show you how to make a traditional Paella, which of course in the end is yours.

This area is reasonably popular among golfers and there are 4 golf courses in less then a 40 minute drive. The smallest, Golf Ifach, is a short but challenging 9 holes course, great for just a morning game. It's located in the urbanisation of San Jaime, in Benissa, close to the sea.
In Altea you have Don Cayo, a 9 hole course but with a lot of difference in height. There is the Javea Golf Club, a full 18 hole course, beautifully maintained and a wonderful golf experience.
A bit further away you have Golf La Sella, near Denia, also 18 holes and shortly expanding with another 9 holes. A little bit further along the coast there are plenty of others, f.e towards Benidorm or Valencia.

Guest access

Private pool with large terrace, which has a basic bar area.

This is a stunning villa. The facilities are incredible, with well-equipped rooms, a large kitchen, good communal areas and a great pool. The views are incredible. The location is slightly off the beaten track, but that is absolutely fine. It is 10 mins to Benissa (supermarket and town) and 20 to Calpe (town and beach). The hosts are wonderful and couldn't be more helpful. Our group of 10 would definitely return. Thank you!

Finca Pura Vida is simply stunning! It´s located in it´s own privacy with amazing views to valley, sea and city of Calpe. Location of finca is remote but for us it offered that peaceful surrounding where we had relaxing holiday with other family. Nearby cities like Benissa, Javea and Calpe are easily reached by car which you would definitely need because of remote location. Architecture of house with all the details is fantastic and house with it´s outdoor areas and pool seems to be part of valley. Outdoor terrace with open fireplace is perfect for dining and simply this property offers all what you can wish. Jeannette was superb host and she even organized a cook for us.

We loved staying in Jeannette's amazing house. It is in such a beautiful spot - tucked away in the hills with an incredible view and has been designed so well. We woke up every morning to the sun coming over the sea in the distance and were so lucky to have such beautiful weather at the end of November. The sun was hot and the sky was constantly blue. The house itself is spacious, modern and so easy to live in with a gorgeous covered terrace outside with a huge table and seating area around an open fire. It really is lovely and we hope we can go back. Jeannette was so helpful and nice, and even arranged a wonderful massage for us before we left which we had in the sun on the terrace. Thank you Jeannette for everything.

Jeanette was a super host. Really helpful ahead of our arrival and also easily contactable throughout. Finca Pura Vida is BEAUTIFUL! Really modern, which is hard to find in Spain right now.. the villa was clean and has everything you could need - plenty of plates, glasses, pans etc. for 12 people. The views from the finca are amazing - day & night- and they change everyday. The pool is very cool with plenty of sunbeds & a bar with a fridge! - Perfect!! There are lots of lovely walks to take around the finca to catch different views. Its secluded in this area, so peaceful which was perfect. We absolutely loved our stay at Finca Pura Vida and hope to come back, lots!

Communicatie met de verhuurder verliep perfect. Vanuit Benissa keurig naar onze (afgelegen) woning gebracht. Daar voor ons als familie een oase van rust met een fantastische ligging en dito uitzicht. Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en rond het huis zijn genoeg plekjes waar een ieder zijn eigen ding kan doen. Een aanrader dus !
