Villa in La Xara, Nr. Denia, Costa Blanca, Spain - Peaceful Location, Set in Orange Groves
'El Camichin' is a 250 year old finca which has been completely restored, providing a lovely holiday home whilst retaining all its charm. The house has been fully modernised to a very high standard throughout. It is set in it's own grounds surrounded by rural land with orange groves with fantastic views all round. The walled perimeter gives the house and pool area a high degree of privacy. Despite its rural location, amenities are close at hand with the nearest village of La Xara only 3 minutes drive away.

Jesus Pobre has a bank & cash point as well as a pharmacy & bakery & 4 bars/restaurants..Every Sunday there is a farmers market in the centre of the village at the old Riu Rau (a local construction built to dry the grapes in order to intensify the sugars to create sweeter wines). This market is famous for local produce which ranges from bread, sweet & savoury pastries, fresh vegetables & local wine. There are tables to sit outside, soak up the atmosphere & listen to music whilst sampling the local produce. The house: The house is tiled with handmade terracotta tiles throughout but has underfloor heating, a wood burning stove & double glazing for the chillier months. There is no air conditioning except in the poolhouse, but the thickness of the old stone walls keeps the rooms cool in summer & mosquito screens at the windows enable good use of summer breezes at night. In addition there are electric fans in all the bedrooms. Within the main house there are 2 bedrooms upstairs, the main bedroom has a kingsized bed & an ensuite shower room with toilet & double basins; the other upstairs room has twin beds & an ensuite shower room with toilet.

There are several sun loungers by the pool which is 10m x 5m in size & is maintained by a Spaniard named Antonio who comes twice a week to clean the pool & sweep around it - he usually arrives early in the morning & speaks very little English.

Lovely family home

We stayed at the Finca for 2 weeks this summer and had a wonderful time. The pool area is fantastic - lots of space around it and the pool itself was larger than we were expecting. Lots of different areas for eating both inside and out and very well equipped kitchen. Large bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe space and modern bathrooms. Excellent location with lots of places to visit that kept both our children and us happy (would definitely recommend a day trip to Valencia). All my queries were answered super fast by the owner both before and during our stay. Enjoy!
