Finca Craig is a large traditional Spanish farmhouse with a modern interior, located on the edge of the village of Rotova in the Valencia region of Spain. The house and private gardens enjoy great views over Rotova, the orange groves and the mountains beyond. The front door leads onto a characterful courtyard which borders the farmhouse's cassita, probably one of the oldest stone buildings in the area. The courtyard has a brick barbeque and the large dining table where you will enjoy your alfresco dining. You can also gate off the courtyard should you desire a secure area to keep young children away from the pool at any time. The courtyard opens onto the mature garden including orange, lemon, olive, pine and palm trees. The garden and all outside areas offer complete privacy. The private pool is now heated which allows it to be enjoyed all year round. Off street gated parking is available for four cars.
Downstairs the modern interior houses the lounge/diner, kitchen, utility room, two twin bedrooms and a bathroom. Upstairs has a further three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is British satellite TV, Spanish TV and WiFi broadband. The fully equipped kitchen includes a washing machine, dishwasher, Nespresso machine, gas oven and hob, and two fridge/freezers, all new or nearly new.
Our location offers you a taste of the real Spain without being isolated. You can easily have a fantastic holiday without leaving Rotova and the local bus can take you into Gandia where you can catch fast trains onto Valencia, Barcelona or Madrid. But a hire car undoubtedly opens up further options. There are so many magnificent beaches all down this stretch of coast from secluded to family orientated with bars and lots to do. You can also hire every type of watersport equipment. There are many coastal and mountain villages waiting to be explored and the amenities of Gandia are so close and just 30 minutes takes you to cosmopolitan Denia. Of course if you desire some madness then Benidorm is just a 45 minute drive away, and for clubbers, the ferries to Ibiza are available daily from Gandia or Denia.
Very few locals speak English but they are all very friendly and willing to help. And not yet being a mass tourism location has many advantages, not least the cheap prices in the bars and restaurants!
So why holiday with us? Well we offer superbly maintained, spacious accommodation for 11 adults with a private heated pool nestled in a mature Mediterranean garden with total privacy. The village has everything you could need a short stroll away, so once here a car is not essential. And this is the real Spain, in a great location, with refreshingly reasonable prices for eating and drinking out. With so many first class beaches on your doorstep, not to mention masses of options for great days out and easy access via Valencia or Alicante airports, then we believe a holiday among our orange groves is just what you need for an unforgettable holiday!

Great base to explore from. Markets, boat trips, train ride to Valencia with cycling down to the stunning Arts & Sciences Centre. History, shopping & tapas in Gandia enjoyed by all. Property has everything you need including lots of space for all to relax. Pool is refreshing at the end of a busy or lazy day. Hosts were discretely available & responsive whenever needed. A superb holiday!

We've just returned from a great holiday at Finca Craig. Colin and Karen gave us a lovely welcome and were always on hand but never intrusive. The Finca was very clean, comfortable and very well equipped. A real home from home and for 11 of us (3 generations) there was plenty of space. We spent a lot of time in the pool and pool area where there were plenty of sunbeds for all the family. We made good use of the BBQ and ate outside for all meals. It is just a short walk into Rotova where we bought lovely fresh bread and delicious cakes. The Bio Parc Zoo in Valencia is well worth a visit. Diamus beach is only a 15 minute drive away and is lovely,ideal for children. Thankyou Colin and Karen for a very enjoyable first family holiday abroad.
Great place - the real Spain!

Excellent communication. The owners live next door so are there if needed (we didn't) but never encroach on your holiday. The owners are great and very accommodating, they even supplied a second cot for our group.
Nice spot above Rotova with a view of the countryside. The area is super quiet, nice little village with bread & beer places, what more do you need??? No English spoken but that's what we wanted, the locals loved our efforts. It's a stroll downhill to the village (10 mins) slightly longer back up!!
The property is great, the bedrooms are spread over the two floors. Our party consisted of two families so this made for a natural split. Fans in the rooms help with the summer heat too.
There is enough equipment in the kitchen and around the pool, stacks of sunbeds and chill out areas. We spent every meal outdoors and didn't use the lounge.
Further a field the beach at Gandia is amazing with miles of golden sand, bars and restaurants as well as parking. Minimal shade on the beach though.
All in all a great place to experience Spain away from the crowds.
Thanks Colin & Karen for a great holiday.
Fabulous villa in beautiful location
By Sinead F. on 18-Jun-2019
We loved our stay here and Colin and Karen were so helpful from the day I booked to when we left. The house itself is really beautiful and well equipped. The pool and garden is stunning. We didn’t want to leave any day to do anything other than relax at the pool. Our teenagers and youngest kids loved it and would happily return ! We went to Gandia some evenings and it’s lovely - a stunning beach ! We would
recommend this property and love to return again !
Family Holiday (Late May/ early June 2019)
By Garry H. on 12-Jun-2019
We rented this property for a week to enjoy a family holiday with 9 of us.
The owners Colin & Karen were very helpful from the start with a welcome pack and a full tour of the amenities as well as a full run down on the local towns, restaurants etc.
The house was perfect for our numbers (9) and we enjoyed several BBQ's as well as several of the local restaurants.
The beds were comfortable and the whole stay was perfect.
We would highly recommend this location & property to others who would like to see more of real Spain.
Lovely villa and plenty places of interest to visit
By Carole H. on 18-Aug-2018
We are three generations of a family and the villa was more than adequate for us, all 11 of us. The pool was great, everyone enjoyed it especially the grandchildren. Colin and Karen made us feel more than welcome. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay at this lovely place
Excellent accommodation in beautifully maintained gardens
By Emma B. on 12-Aug-2018
First class villa with excellent owners who answered all of our questions before our arrival and during our stay. One of the nicest outside/pool areas we have had. Great part of Spain well worth a visit our 2nd time in this area
Great property and layout of pool and areas to relax for large group
By Dave G. on 31-Jul-2018
We stayed as a group of two families for one week (7 in total). The house, pool and outside area were all perfect for relaxing either in or out of the sun. The area is great with plenty of beaches within a short drive or heading west into some lovely old towns. The house itself has everything you need and the owners are very helpful. The outside area is extremely well laid out for a very relaxing time
A beautifully presented, very well equipped, character property
By Anthony J. on 23-Jul-2018
We couldn't have enjoyed it more! It was ideal for a three-generation celebration get-together. We all loved the pool, the charming garden, lemons from the trees, BBQ, comfortable beds, some air-conditioning when needed, pool toys, games, books - Colin and Karen have thought of everything and were very welcoming and helpful.
Finca Craig was how i pictured a traditional Spanish farmhouse
By Lois Gilbert on 13-Sep-2017
Colin and Karen, thank you for making our stay enjoyable and relaxing. The house was a perfect setting and with your amazing garden and a great pool we really just lazed around. I wish I could say more about the area but we were really lazy apart from a couple of beach days we just enjoyed your quirky house
Perfect holiday thanks. Lois
