This is an amazing villa built on a stunning almond grove of 12700m2 with 360 degree views of surrounding mountains, valley, and the famous Sax Castle.

The property was built to order over ten years ago, no expense was spared, and it has been immaculately maintained and landscaped since then.

Locations really don’t come better, this is renowned as being the best area to live in the popular Sax countryside. The views are incredible. All of the plots here were bought around 15 years ago, and then used to build high spec villas by various constructors. The neighbourhood is now very much the “Beverley Hills” of the area. This particular house was built  as the flagship of a local constructor, and hence the abundance of such expensive materials.

Once built the owners took care of planting exotic trees and shrubs. These are now mature, and with the addition of coloured gravel and landscaping an incredibly low maintenance Mediterranean garden has been created in the middle of a vast almond grove. Truly a piece of paradise on the side of this spectacular mountainside.

The house boasts 200m2 built with four bedrooms, three of which have fitted wardrobes, and one also has an en-suite bathroom. There are also another two bathrooms for family and guests.

The house is a curios shape, designed to make the most of sun, shade, and natural light throughout the seasons.

Built in a U shape there is a beautiful courtyard between the two wings of the property. One of the wings has the bedrooms and gets plenty of shade through the day to have them cool in the evening. The other wing has a lounge with dining room. Vast amounts of quality double glazed windows make this villa so light  and airy.

The property is entered via a vestibule which has fitted wooden cupboards.

This leads to a hallway providing access to the kitchen and lounge.


The lounge has a feature fireplace which is in the middle of the room. It has a turbine that blows out hot air. There is also a powerful air-conditioning machine to cool this whole area. The property also benefits from underfloor heating which works to perfection through the stunning ivory colour marble floor that runs throughout the house.

The kitchen is independent and has well-made wooden units with a stunning unpolished black granite work top. The kitchen comes fully equipped.

A passageway leads to bedrooms and bathrooms, and also provides access to the courtyard, a place that has plenty of shade to make it comfortable in summer.

All three bathrooms are tiled with natural stone tiles that include fossils. A really stunning effect.


The quality of building materials is evident, these are not ceramic tiles, natural stone has been used not only inside the house but also outside. The pool area is is surrounded by a vast terrace which again has ivory colour marble and red marble to reach a stunning effect.

Then the courtyard has hand made terracotta tiles which blend with the ornate terracotta bricks used to clad the vast pillars that support the huge veranda.

The pool itself has south facing roman steps which are a great place to enjoy an evening or afternoon Gin and Tonic. The pool is 12 meters long and over 5 wide. It has a shallow area for children which has pillars to provide safety for even the youngest of bathers.

There is an outside shower which is completely private….as indeed is the whole bathing area.

The pump room is more like a works shop, it is beneath the terrace and has lots of room.

Other features include separate utility room with access directly to outside for drying the washing. 15000m2 back up water deposit, ducted aircon for the bedrooms, irrigation water, mains electric, double carport, internet, and a crazy amount of sockets !

What about Sax ? I’ve been here 18 years and, although I’ve built up many friends and contacts, you too can soon do this. It’s a relatively small town so local people soon start recognising you and both Spanish and ex pats embrace newcomers, and offer help in many areas. There are various facebook groups where you will benfit from the experience of others making your new life easy to adapt to.

Most famous for its castle, but also the birthplace of Alberto Sols a famous chemist, successful sportspersons, authors, musicians, and the incredible Moros and Christians festival which celebrates their patron saint…. the beloved San Blas.



I say it’s a relatively small place, but Sax has everything that you really need. A selection of supermarkets including Consum that stocks international foods, as well as a fantastic fresh fish counter, vast range of cheeses, vegetables and cured meats, as well as the typical items that you would hope to find in any major supermarket chain.

I didn’t mention meat or bread etc, wherever possible I like to support the smaller local businesses, and you will find some fantastic butcherers, and bakers within the town where you will get a more personal service, and build up a relationship with the owners, staff and clients.

If you are worried about how you will manage with the Spanish health system, then worry no more. Sax has a 24-hour medical centre with English some speaking doctors and nurses, so does the Elda hospital which is only 5 minute drive away from Sax. There is of course an ambulance servcie based within the town. The standard of health care here is excelent.

Transport links don’t come much better than in Sax either. There is a regular bus service heading to one town inland (Villena, that then loops back and passes through several towns on the way back to where it started in Alicante). For less than 5 euros you can travel in a comfortable airconditioned bus to Alicante and be there in less than an hour. We are also just 7km from the high-speed railway station of Santa Eualia (Villena) where you can catch a train to Madrid or Alicante and arrive incredibly quickly. Perfect for a day out in the Spanish capital.

There is also a train station in Sax, but that is for the traditional line that doesn’t go as quick, and has a few stops, but it’s incredibly handy to get you into the centre of Alicante, and again is low cost.

Do you like culture, history, art, theatre ? Sax has no shortage of these either. the town has a theatre, and a newly built auditorium. The Saxonians celebrate their rich culture on many occasions throughout the year, with the pinnacle being 5 days of the Moors and Christians festival in February, something that really needs to be seen to be believed. From the re-enactment of Conquests and Victory celebrations from many years again with blunderbusses and cannons firing in the streets, with all participants in ancient military costume it really is a spectacular event. Then there are the “Cuartalillos” which a group owned buildings owned by revelelers which ae filled with food and drinks and offer a base for the days (and nights) of celebrations. There is no greater honour for members to invite guests to eat and drink with them. For sure at some time you will be invited, just don’t make the mistake of offering to pay, as your hosts will be most disappointed. They save all year to have the privilege of inviting people.

Even after 18 years here I don’t know what all of the fiestas are, it just becomes a part of life to walk down the street one day and find a few hundred people in costume or doing activities which their great grandparents and relatives before then also did. The carnival is more recent but things like the burial of the Sardines and the day where almost all of the town walks to the mountain to pick a sprig of fresh Rosemary have been done for many years. Suffice to say although you may not know what is quite happening in some of the fiestas, they are always good fun, and nearly always end up with some alcohol consumption !

Speaking of which there are almost 50 bars within the town, many serving tapas food, menus of the day which area aimed at providing hearty food to the workers for exceptional prices. 10 euros can buy a 3-course meal in many places, and often include, beer, wine of coffee. If you ask for wine and they put a bottle on the table…don’t feel you need to drink it all. Wine here is cheap, and they are happy for you to drink however much you want and charge accordingly. From basic restaurants to more classy places, you have everything here.

if you choose to live or invest here you will find that it is an ever-increasingly popular place, apart from the things already mentioned there is a great climate with over 300 days of sunshine per year. This is without the high humidity of the coast, and the inferno type temperatures suffered by the interior of Spain in summer.

With 18 years of experience selling property in this area count on a first-class service and lots of local knowledge. I have helped people with problems and still do even with my first ever clients. Much of my business is done on personal recommendations, and I have many happy clients who would be happy
