Masia Alzineta or Alzineta Farmhouse is nestled within a small more modern development, which grew up on land once belonging to the farm. This 500 year old house is full of rustic charm yet benefits from modern comforts. The house is set within large gardens and has a huge, totally secluded, 200m2 walled patio with solar heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi. There’s table football in the patio and lots of garden to run around in. The house has 3 big bedrooms and 1 smaller one; 2 doubles, a twin with 2 double beds, a single room with full size bunk beds, large family bathroom with independent shower, separate shower room, 2 living rooms, dining hall, kitchen and utility room. There is very spacious accommodation for 8 people.
The development has a small shop for your essentials and is just 1km from the village of Rodonya with its famous brasserie restaurant, supermarket, pharmacy, tobacconist, petrol station and excellent riding stables (one of two within minutes of the house).
The surrounding countryside is a mixture of rolling hills, vineyards and more distant mountains, dotted with beautiful, typically Spanish, villages. Walking and mountain biking are from the doorstep with the extensive network of sign-posted footpaths and marked trails (part of the GR network).

There are distant sea views from 1st floor and extensive views of surrounding countryside. There is free to view Sky TV with all BBC and ITV channels and WIFI internet connection.
Entrance to the house is through the patio with its pool so young children need to be supervised. The house is not isolated so there is some noise from neighbours.
