This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a stunning villa in an area of outstanding beauty. Casa Amarilla has very flexible accommodation with 5 bedrooms on two floors. As both levels of the villa have separate entrances it is also possible for the owner to live on one floor and the other be rented as a holiday apartment or the whole villa makes a wonderful family home. There is an internal staircase (with lockable door at the top) connecting lower and upper floors. It is a very unique property and it is unlikely that there is anything else similar on the market. It has been completely refurbished and maintained to a very high standard. All of the kitchen appliances are included in the price of the villa. The furniture, and other fixtures and fittings are negotiable.
The upper floor of the villa has two double bedrooms and one single, all with built in wardrobes, sleeping a maximum of five people. It overlooks the pool and has a fully equipped kitchen with a Rangemaster double oven cooker with gas hob, integral fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There is a comfortable lounge overlooking the valley of Pla de Corrals towards the mountains. A key feature of the villa is the wonderful Glass Room on the upper floor overlooking the pool, which in cooler months forms a fully enclosed heated dining room with glass table and chairs. During summer months the glass 'curtains' may be folded away to form an open, but covered, terrace.
The ground-floor has two large bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen/dining room with fridge/freezer, ceramic hob and dishwasher. The stunning, very large lounge, currently has comfortable sofas and a large flat screen TV. There is a family bathroom and separate shower-room.
The villa has a log-burning stove in each of the two lounges for cooler months. It is also air-conditioned/centrally heated and most of the rooms have ceiling fans.
The villa has a beautiful, private pool surrounded by arched terraces which form an amazing sun-trap for cooler months while providing welcome shade in the heat of the summer. The pool has a near constant depth of 1.5m. There is a basement room under the pool which houses the pump and filter, and can also serves as a laundry room and general store. There is a summer kitchen with large BBQ, washing machine, fridge/freezer and a separate bar both overlooking the pool.
Casa Amarilla is set in beautiful gardens and is bordered by olive and orange groves. Each floor of the villa has fantastic mountain views and is located in a beautiful area only 25 minutes drive to the nearest beach (Tavernes).
The villa is located in a charming rural area within easy reach of the region’s major towns and attractions - some 25 minutes from Gandia, 10 minutes from the monastery village of Simat de Valldigna and 15 minutes from the large, character town of Tavernes; the glorious historic town of Xátiva is only 15 minutes away. Alternatively, the magnificent Blue Flag beaches of La Safor are only 25 minutes away. Valencia Airport is 45 minutes drive away from Casa Amarilla and Alicante is about 1 hr 15 minutes. There is a twice hourly train service into Valencia from a local station only 10 minutes drive away.
"Pla" (as Pla de Corrals it is known locally), is a delightfully small pueblo (village) renowned for its friendly nature and traditional Spanish community based around the region’s agriculture which is largely reliant upon the growing of fruit (principally Oranges). There are two bars - Bar Buixcarro opens for breakfast, lunchtimes and Friday evenings only with a superb 'menu del dia' and Bar Raquel which opens all day. Both bars/restaurants form a thriving hub for the village. There is now a newly opened Music Club, which gives an alternative to the traditional Spanish Bar/restaurant.
There is a thriving golf society based near the village and there are several stunning courses within easy driving distance. The nearest is La Galiana just 15 minutes away which has been recognised as the fourth best golf course in Spain!
The area is excellent for cycling and there are many cycling clubs in the area. Quad-biking is also very popular.

During summer months there are many fiestas that take place in local villages and of course, outdoor dining in the evening is almost guaranteed! During Spring and Autumn months the temperatures can still rise to 25-30 degrees, but these months have cooler evenings/nights. During winter months, the weather can still be warm during the day, but normally cold at night. Christmas in Xativa is very festive with Christmas markets and an amazing 'walk through' Nativity in the local square.
This property is being sold at a very attractive price and will not be on the market very long. Its unique character and its location make it an excellent investment as a family home.
