5 Star Home From Home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 weeks and couldn't fault it. The villa was like a home from home and the grounds and pool were wonderful. No need to find outside activities, just spent the days and many evenings relaxing and unwinding in the gardens and round the pool. The outside kitchen and dining area was well utilised! WiFi enabled me to work from the villa. Tried out many of the local restaurants, none too far away, but you do need a car as nothing remotely within walking distance.

Villa clean and well furnished. House-keeper, pool guys and gardener all friendly and helpful.

Surrounded by almond groves and it was harvest time during our stay. Lovely to witness this, stilll using traditional methods.

Would definitely recommend and have already booked for another 4 week stay next year.

5* Fantastic villa, pool and garden area.

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say from the start with our initial contact with the owner Andrea, the communication was great and we had no problems 1 class. As for the villa it was just like moving home, it had everything you need and all to a high standard,wifi(important to the kids!!) satellite TVs,not that we watched any,dishwasher, washing machine, air con, very very well equipped kitchen, the beds were extremely comfy without a doubt the best we have been in on our villa holidays, the pool and the garden seating area was Fantastic clean and well maintained ( no fighting over sun beds !! ) in the heat of the day it was a blessing to have the large sofa seating and large parasol to relax under with a glass of wine. We bbq most nights and there are a number of supermarkets near by,we also eat out a couple of times also plenty restaurants within 10 mins drive.

Over all I would recommend this villa to anyone we were a family with grand parents with us , and we would certainly come back this is a 5* villa and thanks again to Jan the property manager, and Andrea as I said your communication was 100%.

Thanks Stewart

Beautiful property with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 weeks and found it very relaxing. The property is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with loads of utensils. The garden was lovely to sit in and the rattan furniture and cushions very comfortable- we spent a lot of time relaxing and drinking there. We found lots of restaurants with the help of Andrea's house book that we could hop in the car too. thanks for the lovely stay.

Absolutely Fabulous Villa, outstanding views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa in Murla (June 2015).

The villa is spacious and excellently furnished with loads of areas to relax, chill and enjoy. The facilities are brilliant and it would be perfect for a group of adults (with or without kids).

The village of Murla is very small and quiet however there is a very friendly spanish bar which is within walking distance for a coffee in the morning or a G&T in the sun.

Plenty of good restaurants nearby:

The nearest being Nui Portet (Steaks etc, great for a more formal evening)

In Orba which is probably the nearest/largest place is only a 5-10 minute drive.

The restaurant that we thoroughly recommend here is Pizza Orba. Everything we ate here was of the highest quality and was very cheap too! (table for 4, starters, wine, cocktails, main course, coffee, liqueur etc = 60-70 Euros!!)

Well worth a visit (or two!)

In the centre of Orba you'll find a small square with a couple of bar/tapas cafes which are excellent too.

Slightly further away is Jalon (spelt Xalo locally) which also has plenty to see and do. lots of little cafes/bars and restaurants and we suggest you the Hallelujah bar (Casa Aleluya - opposite the tourist info centre). Great tapas, Spanish/family owned and managed.

The market in Jalon is on Saturdays until 2pm and is definitely worth a visit.

Further afield, there some great drive up the mountains where you'll find some excellent restaurants too.

Heading out of Orba towards Fleix you will find 'Caball Verde' (an excellent restaurant with outstanding views across the finca towards the see /Denia.

Heading out of Jalon towards Bernia, you will eventually come to a restaurant in the hills called Verde Vent. They open at 1pm and offer a 5 course meal including wine for only 18Euros! excellent food - perfect for sunday lunch!

To summarise, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the villa, can certainly recommend to anyone and will certainly be back again soon.

beautiful villa in beautiful sertting

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Palmera several times. The property is a Spanish farm house (Finca) very tastefully converted to a residential villa. The quality and condition of the property, its decorations, furnishings, facilities and garden are all excellent. This includes a superb swimming pool and numerous toys and space in the garden for youngsters ,should there be any. There is a lovely outside kitchen, sitting and eating area adjacent to the house just in the garden.

The area is quiet and unspoilt with friendly people. It is set in a tranquil valley with a few similar properties but at nearest at least 1/2 a mile away and yet Jalon, Benissa, Moraira and Denia are all within 10 to 30 minutes away. Altogether idyllic.

Without doubt the best villa in Murla

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this villa, and the reason is simple, it's the best villa to rent in the Murla area.

My family and I absolutely love the place, the views are out of this world, it's very spacious, clean and so well kitted out, there is everything you could possibly need to use in the kitchens.

The pool has even a lockable gate entrance on it to keep it safe from young children. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, bathrooms superb, I would recommend this villa to anyone who is looking for somewhere to spend quality holiday time in this region .This is the reason why we have booked to go again next year, so looking for to it..
