About Kevin Monger
My name is Kevin and I live and run my own company in the city of Valencia. My wife and I are both British and have lived in Valencia since 2005. Prior to moving to Spain, we both lived in London and worked in the financial sector. We have two young daughters (Imogen and Scarlett). We are very lucky to own the holiday villa and we try to use is as often as we can at weekends during the year when it is not rented out.
Kevin Monger purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Kevin Monger chose Vilamarxant
The villa is a magical place. It feels like an oasis with all the trees and nature all around. We have a fish pond with lots of fish and three red squirrels live in the pine trees in our front garden. The are lots of places to sit and relax, perhaps reading a book, sunbathing, eating, drinking or just chatting with family and friends. The villa is fully equipped with all you need to enjoy a wonderful holiday and you can always jump in the private pool if you need to cool off!
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is built to a very high standard and has beautiful gardens, with so many trees and wildlife all around. This is what makes it such a special place. It is not something that can be easily created, the gardens are mature we make sure that they are properly looked after for us and our guests to enjoy.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great place to stay. All you need is there and wirking properly
Wonderful house just outside Cheste, you can even walk it! The house has a very high standard finish. The beds are bery good and the showers are perfect. Beautiful garden / pool area to relax and even on a drizzly day you can enjoying sitting outside on the roofed terras. There is a nice outside building with a pool table and darts board to play. We stayed wirh 8 adults and a 2-year okd toddler and was spaceous enough. Would recommend the place to anyone who wants to enjoy a relaxed holiday in a house that is fully equipped and close to the airport, Valencia city and the Cheste race track and town.
Thanks for your review Patrick.
We're glad you enjoyed your stay. You were the first guests to stay since we had the new underfloor heating installed, so it is nice to know that everything was to your satisfaction.
Third year running and still just as good as before
I cannot praise this villa enough. Exactly what we need and look forward to year after year. The area is perfectly located for us and keeps us coming back. The owner is responsive and honest and will try his best to ensure you have everything you need for your stay.
Really enjoyed the self-contained and quiet nature of this house - lots to do and very comfortable
Kevin bent over backwards to help us out and made sure we had a place to stay at short notice (airbnb that didn't work out). The house is comfortable, well-equipped, lots of living spaces indoors and outside and fun games (active and board games) to keep us occupied when not relaxing by the pool! Thank you to the housekeepers and to Kevin for their kindness.
Our Perfect Spanish Retreat
We have just come back from our second consecutive two week stay at this property and it did not disappoint. It is what we can only describe as what traditional Spanish living is all about. Remote enough to be completely private, yet still only a 5 minute drive from the local village with all its shops and bars. Also a short drive is valencia city centre and it's beaches (Malvarosa was our favourite) and the magnificent Heron City, a local hub of bars and restaurants that comes to life around 9pm.
The villa itself is a good size, with 4 good sized double bedrooms, but it is the outdoor life that you come to Spain for and this property has character on every side. Whether you or a sun lover or shade seeker, you can find a comfortable spot to settle down any time of the day. The raised private pool and sun terrace are a true sun trap from just after sun rise to when the sun sinks behind the trees in the early evening. The front porch is almost shaded and cool all day long, irrespective of the incredibly high temperatures that can be reached.
The games room is another way to escape the sun or spend the evenings with family challenging each other at one of the many games provided whilst enjoying a refreshing drink or two.
The only criticism I have of this property is the one bathroom, which can lead to a queuing system (especially when you have teenage girls), but this is a small price to pay considering what the rest of the villa has to offer. We managed to live with it and there is a shower up by the pool if needed.
The owner is informative and helpful and acts upon any issues almost immediately. The cleaners and gardeners that visited during our stay were polite, professional and non intrusive.
We have enjoyed both of our stays so much that we have enquired into booking again next year and cannot wait to go back.
I strongly recommend this villa to anybody, couples or families.
Lovely family house and well equiped and maintained. It is settled in a small isolated compound away from the maintrack. We - a family of 8 persons - loved our stay very much and especially enjoyed the swimmingpool, the terrace and the playroom. In the garden you can watch a squirrel.
The only inconvenience was that sometimes during the week the electricity shut down on unespected moments. But lucky enough it could easily be fixed by turning the mainswitch outside the fence.
Thanks for your review Paul.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Regarding the electricity issue, as explained previously, this was due to the new meters that the electricity company installed at all local villas immediately before the summer season. We have work scheduled for later this month, which will solve the problem...
Best wishes : )
We had a great vacation in the villa! Everyting we needed was present. The house was clean and there were nice towels, made up beds, toiletpaper, dishwashersoap, good pans, garbagebags etc... The wifi is very good and fast. But the best part was the fantastic private pool!
The owner, Kevin, is very approachable and helpfull. There are two big supermarkets and nice restaurants in Cheste which is only a 7 minutes drive.
The villa is situated in the countryside west of the city of Valencia between Villamarchante and Cheste. Ideal for relaxing away from the crowds and hustle and bustle. Local towns and villages have regular fiestas, which are lively family affairs with colourful parades, lots of eating and drinking and the odd firework or two. In the local town of Buñol, the world-famous food fight 'La Tomatina' is held at the end of August, involving 5 tons of tomatoes and several hours of mayhem! For something more civilised, there are the wine-producing areas of Utiel and Requeña, so why not indulge in a wine tasting trip and purchase some of their fine wines. Only 45 mins drive away is the cosmopolitan city of Valencia city with its stunning architecture, exclusive bars and restaurants. They city centre is quite compact and you can walk between most of the tourist attractions. A short cab ride from the city is the port area with its open-air terrace bars overlooking Malvarossa beach.
The main sporting events on the calendar are the Moto GP finale held around the end of October each year, which is a 4-day party in the town of Cheste a few kilometers from the circuit.
There is also the Valencia Open 500 tennis tournament in the city, which is an ATP event and features many of the world's best players.
Golf: The villa is situated about 20 minutes drive El Bosque golf course and 40 minutes from El Saler golf course. These are both fantastic golf courses and the facilities are second-to-none.
The El Bosque Golf Club is perfectly located a short drive from the villa. It was opened in 1975 and was designed by Robert Trent Jones Snr. who has designed some of the world's best golf courses. As a result of this, the club has hosted some of the most important international championships such as the Open 'El Bosque' (Volvo Tour), the Mediterranean Open, the PGA senior of the European PGA and the Queens Cup. If you wish to make a reservation call them on 0034 961808000 or send an email.
The El Saler Golf course sits beside the Mediterranean Sea within the pine grove of the same name. This course is considered one of the best in the world of golf and is a regular host to European Tour events, including the Spanish Open.
