What makes this Villa unique
Villa Gemma has the perfect location - it's in a quiet urban area with enough amenities in the locality for all essentials. It's position overlooking orange groves with the mountains in the distance is the perfect setting for unwinding. It is very private with its own pool and space for sunbathing or retreating to the shade when the sun is too much. I love the balcony for sitting quietly with a book or a glass of wine (or both!) where the twinkling lights and sunsets really give that 'holiday' feeling. The villa is calm and peaceful with a real homely atmosphere. I love walking in the palm gardens at Elche and lunching in my favourite seafood restaurant, Casa del Mar, in Santa Pola. I can't wait for the next opportunity to visit!

Villa was spotless and lovely views. Correspondence easy with Laura although we had no need for contact as everything went smoothly. Pool great.
A ten day stay in glorious sunshine and a wonderful villa
Being the first time taking a 3 and 5 year old away we were a little anxious. However on arrival we couldn’t have been more impressed the villa was spotless, living space was all on one level and so we didn't need to worry about our children on stairs. The pool was amazing and even the English pool maintenance man went out of his way with additional visits to ensure the pool was perfect for us. The la Finca golf course which is a two minute drive offers at least ten restaurants to choose from but for us it was convenient to use the Lidl supermarket (15mins) drive and self cater. Communication with Laura was great and our questions were answered very quickly. Air conditioning in master bedroom and main living space were fantastic and even the fan in the second bedroom was enough to cool our children down in the evenings. As for the views there aren’t any words to describe it ,you have to see it to believe it! Standing on the roof terrace you can’t help but feel king of the world as you watch the sun set in the evenings. The loudest sound you can hear are the insects and even then you could hear a pin drop. We will certainly be booking again as the accommodation was just like home from home which is just what you want and need when you are on a family holiday. Thankyou x
Many thanks for the fantastic review, we are so pleased that the villa offered you just what you needed from your stay.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future but always book earlier to avoid disappointment!
Thanks once again.
Great holiday and the villa was perfect, loved the pool
Quiet location with absolutely amazing views from the sun terrace. Plenty to do and visit close by.
A really beautiful villa with everything you need provided. Spacious lounge, great kitchen with plenty crockery, cutlery, pots and pans. New cooker hob is excellent and fridge freezer is spot on. Great sized bedrooms with air con and fans. Immaculately clean bathroom with bath and power shower. A proper home from home and to top it all off there's the superb swimming pool. My daughter pretty much lived in it for a fortnight. There's so much to do and see surrounding this quiet base. We visited three different markets, several excellent restaurants (Best of all without a doubt was Olives, just 10 mins walk but you have to reserve) Alicante, Cartagena, Torreveija, and Murcia. We had a brilliant holiday and a first for me personally was feeling really sad when leaving. I will definitely book up with The lovely and very helpful Laura again and can't wait to get back already.
Very Good Villa
Just Back from our holiday. we are a family of four adults. We spent three weeks in this lovely villa, good villa in a quiet area, close enough to most places you want to visit in Costa Blanca, air conditioning is working very well . Internet is fine and unlimited, good enough to stream movies. good swimming pool. Laura the lady who is minding the villa is very helpful.
We have just come back from a 10 day holiday at this villa and had a fantastic time. The villa is located in a quiet residential area with the beach just a 10 min drive away. The villa had everything we needed and a lovely sized private pool. We have 2 girls aged 7 & 3 and found the villa child friendly which made for a worry free holiday! Would recommend to all.
