Built in the typical ‘riurau’ country house style for this region, with arched porticos traditionally for drying raisins, Villa Filomena is something to behold. This private, luxury villa with pool sleeps fourteen guests on a large, lawned plot overlooking the countryside surrounding Benissa.
All your wonderful living accommodation is found on the ground floor, with some bedrooms and bathrooms on a second floor. There are seven bedrooms, all of which are en-suite.
The impressive and very spacious lounge and dining room continue the country house feel with exposed beams and a wood-burning fireplace in the lounge. This sociable space, ideal for gathering your friends and family together in the evening, leads out onto one of your huge covered terraces. Beneath the welcome shade of the distinctive arches, there are tables and chairs. This is the spot for morning coffee. Gaze out onto the wondrous view of the valleys and mountains in the distance and plan the day ahead.
Villa Filomena’s second and more casual lounge adjoins the breakfast room and smaller of the kitchen. This relaxed space looks out onto your lawned garden and private pool. Your covered terrace here is perfect for leisurely lunches, cooked on the pool-side barbecue or just a salad from one of Benissa’s markets. You can’t help but stare out at the view, like your eye, and your cares, are taken for miles.
With up to fourteen friends and family sharing this amazing villa, it will be very easy to spend your days lazing around the pool, soaking up the Mediterranean sun or splashing about in the cooling water. You even have an outdoor shower to wash away the heat of the afternoon, before seeking out shade at siesta time. The beauty of Villa Filomena’s generous space is that everyone can find their corner to snooze or relax, indoors or out.
The pool-side garden patio, complete with table and chairs places you as close as possible to the edge of the garden and the start of your view. It’s stunning. Dine al fresco here before the sun goes down, sipping a locally produced wine and admiring the sunset.
If you can drag yourselves away from the luxury and privacy of Villa Filomena, you’re only a fifteen-minute walk to the town of Benissa. The old quarter dates to the middle ages and is popular with visitors from across the Costa Blanca. Your nearest beach, Playa de Levante, is a ten-kilometre drive to the coast and you also have tennis and a fine choice of golf courses within easy reach.
