Southerners in Search of Springtime Sunshine!

Easter Saturday saw the arrival of Joan and Mike, desperately needing a dose of Costa Blanca sunshine after a long British winter. Joan and Mike currently live near London, but originally hail from South Africa and have therefore been accustomed to a much milder and sunnier climate than they have been experiencing in England for the last decade! They were looking forward to relaxing in the gardens and swimming in the swimming pool – and […]

Easter Sunshine In Spain

Family Holidays on the Costa Blanca Stuart and Linda, along with their 10 month old daughter Katy, booked in to stay with us for 8 nights in our self-catering apartment over the Easter period. They wanted to have a combination holiday that took in city, beach and countryside so decided that making Villa Florencia their base would be the perfect solution, and they often made use of our evening meal service when they returned from […]

Served by […]

Bed and Breakfast in June

Past guests return! Monday saw the return of some past guests – or at least one past guest, this time returning with her husband, rather than her daughter who came with her in March 2009.  Now, Deirdre was visiting us with Mick, and it has to be said the weather was a whole lot better for their trip this year, with almost continuous sunshine. On Monday evening we invited some friends round for dinner who […]

A Visit from Fellow Hoteliers

A Visit from fellow Casa Rural Owners! No sooner had the weekend’s despedida party left on the Sunday, than we received a phone call on the Monday to enquire whether we could accommodate a couple for 2 nights.  We could, so shortly before lunchtime we had the pleasure of welcoming Jean-Philippe and his partner Thomy to our home.  Originally from Switzerland, they were taking a well-earned break from their working lives, in the form of […]
