We are Herman and Jose and we would love to welcome you to our beautiful luxuriously designed villa. Villa Guapa is located in Santiago de la Ribera of which its origins are an authentic, charming village with a fishing history, part of San Javier. It’s located about 45 minutes by car south of Alicante in Spain.
At the Second Home Convention in Utrecht we started our search for a location in Spain where we love to spend our holidays. At the Convention we met with a Dutch estate agent who got us interested in the Costa Calida, ‘the warm coast’, as a possible location for our villa.
During our search in Spain we visited tens of already built authentic properties but we favoured a newly built property. Eventually we found our building plot with the architect’s drawing of our dream home in Santiago de la Ribera. At this location we could imagine the sun and the rest that we were looking for. We immediately felt at home in Santiago de la Ribera.
We named our villa after our niece who means so much to us. Many years ago she created and marketed a clothing brand called ‘My Guapa’. She was very excited that we wanted to name our villa ‘Villa Guapa’ after her brand. Guapa means beautiful/attractive in Spanish. It describes our favourite spot perfectly!
As inhabitants of Brabant (in the south of the Netherlands) we are known for our enjoyment of creating a cosy atmosphere and having fun and we will do our utmost to make your stay a positive, memorable and enjoyable experience. In order to achieve this we have executed the design of our villa to the smallest detail.
Apart from a lovely lounge and kitchen (furbished with all conveniences in mind) we have a heated salt water pool which offers the necessary refreshment after a day out or on warm days, an outdoor shower, outdoor barbecue, an outdoor terrace with a large dining table and bar. The two attractive light bed-rooms both have built in wardrobes as well as their own en-suite bathroom with shower. The garage has been furbished with bicycles, pool toys, a computer corner, washing machine, tumble-dryer etc.
We also have a beautiful large roof terrace with sun beds, a lounge-set, bar, outdoor shower and a pergola for when it gets very warm and you prefer to sit in the shade.
