We recommend this beautiful house to anyone who consider visiting Ontinyent. Very relaxed and "off the beaten track" atmosphere. Ran out off gas for the barbeque, texted Diego, and within 20 minutes, he was there with a new bottle. That's good service! The pool was superb for the kids.
The beds weren't the best on the market, and we had to fight off quite some mosquitoes - but still, we would very much recommend this place.
Lovely house that if anything outdoes in reality what the photos here show. I agree with pretty much everything the other commenters here have said - thank you Diego and Angeles. [The only problem is the lack of broadband internet connection, but then cafés in town had free internet.]
We had such a lovely stay at the villa! It was so beautiful and exceeded our expectations all around...we didn't want to leave! The pool was absolutely gorgeous and the whole property was immaculately clean and stocked with everything you might need. We cooked all meals at the villa, the BBQ was wonderful and the view from the balcony is amazing. What a peaceful place to relax and unwind. We would love to come back again...thank you for sharing such a wonderful place :)
We stayed at Villa la Portella for a couple of weeks in July,. We were two adults and two young kids. It was a great stay for the whole family! As you can tell from the video presented on Airbnb, the house is spacious, pristine and full of charachter and this is by all means true in reality as well.
The view from the veranda overlooking Ontinyent is fantastic. The villa itself was really well kept, with up to date bathrooms and other ammenities. Mosquito nettings on all windows which provided for a nice breezy atmosphere in the house. Just remember air plugs if you are sensitive to neighbourhood dogs barking at night :-)
The garden and pool area is just splendid. Baked in the sun all day and with a shady cool area too whenever you wanna chill. Even good for kids since there are steps in the pool.
Before we arrived I asked if there was a barbeque at the house, and sure enough the host show up with a new barbeque the first day we were there. Just an example of their attention to their visitors.
Thanks to a very hospitable family who made us feel as if it was our home which we didn't want to leave!
Villa La Portella was absolutely fantastic - without doubt the best stay we had on our trip through Europe. The pictures hardly do the place justice. The villa could very comfortably accomodate 7 people, with room to spare. The pool is gorgeous, and we spent a couple great afternoons lounging around in the sun.
The location is great - Ontinyent was a much needed break from the regular 'touristy' scene that seems to be most of Barcelona. For an even more authentic Spanish experience, we took a 20 minute drive south to Bocairent, and if you're looking for a more bustling city, Valencia is only about 45 minutes north - perfect for a day trip.
Looking forward to coming back!
