Great family Villa
We have just returned from a 7 night stay for 10 guests (6 kids) and it suited us perfectly. Lovely, clean and bright rooms and well equipped kitchen. Everyone loved the pool and it was lovely and clean. Perfect holiday and we are already looking to book for next year!
We had a fantastic stay, the villa is very well equipped with excellent facilities and en-suite bathrooms with high quality showers. The pool is large and there’s several patio areas for different times if the day to make the most of the weather. There are plenty of loungers. Very suitable for large families. We would highly recommend this villa.
Peaceful and spacious, everything you need
Tremendous infastructure for this large detatched villa in the countryside with wonderful views across the orange groves and olives towards the coastline. Sleeping up to ten people on two floors, everything is provided for you. Fabulous pool with outside lighting and various patio/terraced areas and all within a short drive to Montserrat where you find all the bars/restaurants, chemists, banks, supermarkets etc. We really enjoyed the Sunday Market where you can find just about anything. The highlight of our stay was probably driving to Torrent (which was easy) and getting on the metro into Valencia; the 'old city' was lovely and the Cathedral absolutely fabulous.
Generally clean but outside space, kitchen and furnishings need updating.
The surrounding area is very 'authentically' Spanish and the setting very rural but the villa, which was once probably a lovely retreat, has become shabby and neglected. From the cracked and broken concrete of the entrance, the worn tiles in the pool, cracked and broken sunbeds with ancient covers to the rusty mops and brushes left outside the door the overall first impression was shabby.
Inside the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen were clean but everything was worn, broken dining chairs, broken cutlery drawer, broken shower head,ancient TV with only one channel, tepid water, building material lying about,access to 'laundry area' hazardous.
The pool was cleaned once whilst we were there but we had some rain and, because of the uneven surface, puddles of dirty water collected near the pool which we had to clear before using it.
We chose a rural place and, for the price, did not expect five star, but it is a shame that this place seems to have been allowed to fall below basic standards. If the owner is paying other people to maintain the property then she should sack them!
Relaxing, chilled out holiday
We had a very relaxed holiday, it's so peaceful and tranquil at the villa. We ventured into Montserrat on occasion for breakfast at El Dolcet cafe.
We did prefer to relax by the pool but we drove into Valencia and took the chidren to L'Oceanografic. What a wonderful day out we had. We also drove to Cullera and spent a couple of days on the beach there. Well appointed and spacious and we even had our dinner watching the Spain v Italy Euro game. Very entertaining!!
We shall be returning again.
Spacious, luxurious and very tranquil
The house was our excellent getaway from the hard working environment we left at home. The pool was very clean and was cleaned very regularly by a nice pool-lady (sorry, forgot your name).
There is enough space to park two cars in the shadow. A cool sea-breeze blows through the porch, making it easy to escape from the heat.
When the wind changed to an inland magma-hot wind, the pool was there to avoid drying up to a sun-bleached skeleton. Just wish we could've found the remotes for the A/C. Ah well...
There is enough to see in the nearby towns and of course there's Always Valencia to visit.
The house has a pleasant view on the Albufeira in the distance and at night the starry skies gave us a view we usually can not enjoy in the light-polluted cityscape that western Netherlands is.
The kitchen is modern, spacious and well-equipped. There is plenty of storage room in the bedrooms, so you can quit living from a suitcase whilst on holidays.
The road in the urbanisation is very bad in places, but as long as your keep your speed upwards of 30 km/h and avoid the bottomless pits that are scattered on the road, you won't notice much.
But I'm nitpicking: the house is great, the location is great, the showers (in the bathroom, I mean) are powerful and with a large enough fridge it is all you ever need to fall in love with Spain.
The only downside is: we had great problems adjusting to our usual work-rhythm back home and became a bit homesick for Villa Levante because of the great time we'd spent there.
Villa Levante is located near the village of Monserrat in a rural urbanisation surrounded by orange and almond groves. The villa has over 220sq. m of living space and a large private garden of over 2000sq.m. with a private pool and large terrace set on the upper level to the property. There is also parking space and access at this level. The lower level of the garden also has vehicular access and parking and a terrace and BBQ area. There are lovely views overlooking the Albufera lake and the sea beyond. The village of Monserrat is a 5 minute drive and holds a weekly market and numerous fiestas. The larger town of Torrent is 15 mins by car, lively and busy and you can get into the city of Valencia on the Metro. There are numerous golf courses in the area, the Moto GP circuit in Cheste and Valencia also hosts the prestigious sailing tournament 'The Americas' Cup' not to mention the F1 European Grand Prix.
Golf: There are several courses available including El Bosque, Escorpion & Manises, or even a round at El Saler which was voted the 5th best in Spain in April 2005 by Golf Digest Magazine. Two newer courses are just a short drive from the villa. An 18 hole course in Picassent and a 9 hole Pitch & Putt near Torrent.
