Perfect for our needs!
We were a family party of 10 and David & Jan's complex was absolutely perfect for us. The apartment and 2 studios had everything we needed to enjoy our self catering stay. We had small children in our group and safety was a must for us which we absolutely got as the complex is very safe and secure with steel entry gates which we kept locked and a gated pool entrance. There a number of areas to relax, eat, socialise together and also enough space to have a minute to yourself. The highlight for us all was the fantastic rooftop pool which the kids were in from breakfast til dusk some days! Highly recommended for a relaxing away from it all stay. We'll definitely look to book again in the future. Thanks.
I kinda feel like I should keep this a secret in case everyone realises what a fantastic place this is, but I must say a huge thanks to David for the perfect holiday.
The photos are a good representation of what to expect but simply cannot convey the spectacular views, the stunning scenery and the absolute serenity offered by La Drova. Such a charming village with all the amenities you need without the noise of tourism blasted at you 24/7. Well located; you have The quietness of the mountains but the beach just a 20 minute drive. Gandia is the nearest major town and the hustle bustle of Valencia is only an hour away.
The villa was perfect for our needs & well thought out. Spaces for alone time and for more sociable moods alike. We all felt instantly at home and comfortable here. But the pool....it's all about the pool, man I really miss that pool! The highlight of the stay, without a doubt.
A few tips:
- Bug spray! Bring it, buy it, use it, it is essential!
- A good pair of walking shoes/trainers are a must to really enjoy the mountain walking.
- Car is definitely recommended
- Local produce is of a much higher quality than the bigger hypermarkets
- The pool is quite deep but well secured and good clear views from all angles for watching little ones.
Thanks once again David, see you in 2019 :)
Excellent stay in a truly relaxing setting!
Firstly, the location is AMAZING, situated just out from the old village center (Barx) the property is surrounded by beautiful mountains on both sides. From the rooftop pool (more on that in a bit) you could almost imagine you were the only people on earth. Its about a 20 minute drive to Gandia which is a fairly large town with all the usual stuff (Carrefour etc) and some lovely little squares for evening meals. The beach there is nice but we had a much better time going south another 20 minutes to the beaches in and around Miramar where there a little streams that feed the sea which are really warm and the kids can play in all day long.
The villa itself could not have been better suited to our party. Its made up of 3 units. The first is really quite large and has two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a lounge/dining/kitchen (My mum and dad had one of the rooms and my nan the other). The second is a studio with the main bed in the same living area (large space though), a separate small bedroom and a large bathroom (my wife and I stayed in this unit and our two boys - 4 and 2 - shared the small bedroom). The last unit is also a studio, again with a large lounge/dining/kitchen room and a good sized bathroom (my sister, her friend and their two kids all shared this unit - creating a massive bed which the kids really enjoyed!).
The complex is arranged around one central building with the three units all inside, The configuration is very clever and creates lovely spaces all over the plot, there a little tables where you can escape the kids for a morning coffee along with large nooks where 12 people can sit around one table. The pool on the top is EXCELLENT, its very safe for kids although the water is pretty deep so armbands for little ones is a must. Being above the house it really does feel like a different world and we all had much fun and relaxing there. There is a large garden, which is great for games with the kids and bug hunting :) There is also a wonderful tented area in the garden that is ideal for sitting in in the evening, listening to some music or catching up on facebook (if you must).
Dave and his family were excellent hosts. There were there if we needed them (with tips on restaurants and even printing our boarding passes for us) and not when we didn’t :). i would highly recommend this villa and hosts and in fact have already done so, my brother is visiting later this year with his extended family!
