About the property

Villa in Jalon Valley, Costa Blanca North, Spain - Very Peaceful Location Yet Close To Many Typical Villages And Only A Short Drive To Popular Beaches

If you are looking for peace you have found it! The overwhelming feeling here is one of calm and tranquillity. The perfect escape from real life. There is only the noise of the birds and the smell of the neighbouring orange and almond blossom to bother you! There is a beautiful garden and patio area where you can relax and take in the breathtaking views with sun from sunrise to sunset. However, you are never too far from civilisation when you feel the need! There is a quality bar/restaurant within walking distance and a variety of typical Spanish towns and villages, with their narrow streets, cafés and restaurants, which can be found within a 10 minute drive. The villa is ideally located to explore the beautiful beaches and coastal areas of the Costa Blanca with the popular resorts of Javea, Gandia, Denia and Altea all easily reached in 25-45 minutes.

Please note that between June and October arrival days are either Saturday or Sunday and there is a minimum stay of 7 nights. Outside of these months, or if there is late availability, we are happy to be flexible to try to accommodate different arrival days and lengths of stay. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

About Katie

Hi we're Katie & Darren and we hope you love our villa as much as we do.

In the UK we lead busy lives and our villa is our 'get away from it all as often as possible' place! It is our Spanish home, not just a holiday rental!

Katie purchased this villa in 2012

Why Katie chose Murla

When we first visited the property it was on a rare rainy day and we immediately fell for the view and decided that if it looked great on a rainy day how amazing it would be in the sun!

We were right - the view & outdoor space never fails to delight us! We love chilling out sitting on the terrace taking in the peaceful, beautiful surroundings. It's the perfect antidote to our busy lives back in the UK.

With so many different towns, villages, beaches, restaurants, cafés, coves and attractions, that can be reached within a short drive, we know we will never tire of visiting the area as there's always something else to discover. Our favourite city of Alicante is only an hour away and Benidorm with its kid friendly attractions is very appealing to our children!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Having just spent a lovely week here I would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful villa.

The villa is set in a beautiful location with fine views across the valley, the sunsets are spectacular and it is very peaceful. The villa is well equipped and the garden is beautiful, We could have stayed there for weeks!

The owners could not have been more helpful and answered any questions we had extremely quickly and really went out of their way to help. We were provided with information about the local area and directions from the airport.

If we are ever in Spain again we would definitely stay here again." Tom, May 2013.

"Ssshhh...can you hear that noise? No, of course you can't! It's so peaceful!" Ann, June 2013.

"Beautiful views, beautiful villa, beautiful villages & beautiful food." Rachel, Aug 2013.

"The views from the villa, the whole area actually, were breathtaking." Hayley, Aug 2013.

We picked this apartment having read all the other reviews - all of which sum it up!

  • 5 of 5

I don't need to say anymore other than the apartment has everything you need to have a lovely holiday, set in a wonderful peaceful location. The owners have thought of everything & are great at communicating & are extremely helpful. There is little point in repeating all the things said in other reviews (which are all true) so go for yourself to this gem of a property, a fantastic find!

One week stay April 2018

  • 5 of 5

Good sized comfortable apartment and well maintained garden and pool with superb views across the valley. A car is essential but the location is good with easy access to Orba, Murla, Parcent, Alcalali and Jalon. The coast and Calpe is only about 15-20 mins drive. Built on a slope, there are plenty steps so might cause elderly some difficulty. We had a 3 yo with us with no problems at all but she was kept supervised. Pool safety is required but thats just commonsense and the case at all properties with pools. Weather had been poor in the run up to our stay so pool was cold, warmed up fine though after the sun had been on it for a couple of days. Plenty restaurants all around though many closed (during our stay at least) Sun and Mon. Indian at lhs entrance to Orba was open. Next time in area, we would return here if available.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback David. We agree with what you say - so to any readers who haven't found this information in our listing, here might be a good place to remind everyone that there are around 15 steps down to the property and smaller sets (of 2/3/4 steps) to reach the different levels of patio areas - so we don't recommend this property to the infirm or young/toddling children. Also, there is no gate or fence around the pool. Please do watch our video of the outside areas to double check that the villa is suitable for your needs or feel free to ask. We really do want everyone to be as happy as possible with your choice, even if it means it's not our villa! Let us know David if you're back visiting friends again and we can help you out. Many thanks, Katie

We stayed in early March and would highly recommend the villa. If you are seeking peace and quiet this is certainly the place to be, with the exception of sitting on the balcony listening to the birds singing at sunset in the nearby hillside trees ;-) = perfect.

The villa is a home from home with everything you could ask for and need; it is very comfortable and private.

You need a car but this is so simple from the airport and should not put anyone off. When we stayed the roads were very quiet, plus having a car opens up the whole region and there are some great places to visit from the mountains, beaches or even to the city (we drove about an hour to Xeraco train station and caught the train in to Valencia where we spent the day).

The correspondence and info provided in advance of our stay from Katie and Darren was excellent, plus the comments book and info folder in the villa provides some great ideas of where to go and what to do if you're short of ideas.

If you book this villa we doubt you'll be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Helen & Tina for your kind words. Luckily the roads are always quiet - apart from the cyclists that flock to the area - because of its quiet roads and hilly scenery! The only jam we've ever been in was in the centre of Valencia during Las Fallas so catching the train for the final leg, sounds like a good choice! We're so pleased that you enjoyed your early spring break, Katie

Idyllic peaceful Spanish retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our first self-catering family holiday in mainland Spain. Located roughly an hour's drive from Alicante airport the villa totally exceeded our (already high) expectations! Arranging car hire was no problem at all from the UK and pick up from the airport was simple. Within just a few minutes we were on the road. The main roads were all very easy so don't let having to hire a car put you off this beautiful property. The view from the villa is simply breathtaking. You could never tire of watching the sun rise and fall across the beautiful Val de Pop mountains. Our boys had lots of fun in the private pool and the large sun terrace was well equipped with sun loungers and BBQ facilities. The accommodation itself was spot on. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to prepare and cook your own meals. We chose to eat in most evenings although there is a wide choice of restaurants within a short drive from the villa. There are several beautiful beach resorts within a 20 minute driving distance (approx), we especially enjoyed Calpe and Javea. At the local small town of Jalon there are lots of friendly cafes and a supermarket where you can get all of your provisions, this is only within a 5-10 minute drive. We enjoyed our stay here so much that we have booked to return!

Peaceful Jasmine Sanctuary

  • 4 of 5

This was our first holiday for a very long time and we were looking for peace and quiet and a chance to re-charge batteries most of all. We chose the villa for the private pool, and countryside rather than seaside, in an area that we didn't know at all.

The villa is simple and charming and fine for a couple, though lots of families have stayed there too. It is actually the lower half of a house, and has sun most of the day filtered through palms and trees and jasmine, and the pool has sun until mid-evening. Garden is great and jasmine follows you everywhere. We were there Sept into October and in a year when mosquitoes were a big problem and so even though the weather was good we couldn't sit out in the evening, but we were just unlucky !

The owners have taken trouble to provide lots of entertainment equipment and so you can have evenings at home with music, films and TV. Locally there are some good restaurants including an Indian which offers a pick-up/drop-off service so you can have a beer or two. If you like a full English breakfast most cafes offer them. We explored down to the coast which out of season was lovely. Around the villa the mountains are wonderful, and the local villages and towns are delightful - Jalon 's Saturday market if you like a jumble-carboot-antique fair rummage is a must!

We enjoyed a very relaxing two weeks in Murla in a charming house and garden with the luxury of a private pool in sun all day.

Very Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Dear Katie

We have had a lovely stay in your villa. We were very comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. We appreciated the welcome items in the fridge when we arrived.

We got around and saw a lot of the area including Altea, Denia, Javea, the local villages and a bit farther afield to Xativa. As we were out and about during the day, we tended to stay home in the evenings and cook. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed to prepare our meals.

We also enjoyed relaxing by the pool which was peaceful and quiet. The views from the balcony whilst enjoying an early evening aperitif were glorious.

All in all a lovely 12 days and we would definitely recommend!

Kind regards

Cathy and David

Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

The villa is ideally located for rock climbers as many of the Costa Blanca's main climbing sites can be found within 30 minutes of the villa. The nearest rock face of Alcalalí is a 5 minute drive away.

The area's quiet roads are very popular with keen cyclists and the countryside with walkers/hikers.


A leisurely drive on the quiet roads lined by almond and orange groves will take you to the many popular sandy beach resorts of the Costa Blanca. Calpe, Moraira, Denia, Javea and Benidorm can all be reached between 25-40 minutes. There are also a number of smaller coves to be discovered. Each of the towns has its own personality from the very lively Benidorm to the classy, fishing town of Moraira.


A car is essential to fully enjoy your holiday here.

The villa is about an hour's drive using the motorway toll road (€7) from Alicante Airport and just under an hour and half from Valencia Airport using the toll road. We will email you detailed directions from the airport should you chose to stay at our villa.


Nearest bar/restaurant - 5 minute walk,

Nearest villages - Orba & Murla 5 minute drive,

Nearest large supermarket - 10 minute drive to Jalón or Orba,

Nearest large shopping centre - 25 minute drive to Ondara,

Nearest beach - 25 minute drive to Calpe,

Nearest petrol station - 2 minute drive towards Orba,

Benidorm's Aqualandia water park, Terra Mitica theme park & Mundomar animal park - all approx 30 minutes drive,

Nearest airport - Alicante approx 1 hour drive on toll road €7.

Further Details:

As much as we love them, we do not accept pet guests in the villa.

The surrounding villages of Orba, Murla, Alcalalí, Jalón and Parcent give you access to banks, supermarkets, bakeries, butchers, newsagents, tobacconists, chemists, doctors, petrol station, hairdressers, bars, cafés and restaurants.

There are many local fiestas in the Jalón Valley that are great to experience.

The shopping centre in Ondara provides an escape from the sun with a large range of shops as well a hypermarket, cinema and range of food options.

Sports - water sports, horse riding, tennis and go carting are all available locally as well as the hiking, walking, cycling and rock climbing mentioned above.

There is a 'rastro' flea and antique market in Jalón every Saturday morning and each village has a weekly morning market.
