“Simply wonderful”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just like the other reviews , we had the most wonderful relaxing time.

Ibi is wonderfully ' Spanish ' and just 15 minutes walk , there are some great little shops , ice cream parlours,lots of supermarkets and an amazing fresh produce food hall with delicious deli's , fresh bread and fruit and vegetables .

There is lots to see in the surrounding area from the busy city of Alacante ( that has a tremendous beach) to the lovely little town of Castella ( the next town it Ibi)

The property is lovely, it's spacious , clean and really comfortable .. The pool area is amazing , the pool summer house has shower, toilet , comfy chairs to relax out of the mid day heat , and the pool has plenty of sun beds to relax on. We made use of the barbi whilst watching the sun go down.... Wonderful

As everyone else has said Virginia and Jack Masters are fantastic hosts , they brought Fresh fruit and veg farmed on the land. They made sure we were comfortable . Thanks to you both

I can't recommend it enough ....

“a wonderful property in a fascinating area”
Reviewed 8 January 2013 for a stay in August 2012

Vista Alegre is a beautiful property in a magical miniature estate of pines, olives and fruit trees, with views of wooded hills and mountains crowned with castles: the only flaw is the noisy motorway wrapped around it, cutting it off from the hard working little town of Ibi. The building has great character, and Virginia and Jack Masters, who own it with other family members, have even more. Your fellow guests are likely to be the only tourists you meet. We stayed on the top floor, reached by an exterior metal staircase, which has the best views and is simply but well furnished. There is also a large and truly beautifully designed pool and pool house. The Masters are full of pride in their adopted home and region, and have a wealth of local knowledge which they are happy to share - along with superb vegetables from their garden.

“Fantastic and Relaxing Stay at Vista Alegre”
Reviewed 31 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

people found this review helpful

We had the pleasure of staying at Vista Alegre, a beautifully remodeled farmhouse and estate, in August 2011. From the moment we arrived, we felt warmly welcomed. Our hosts, the Masters families, gave us a tour of the apartments and property - absolutely enchanting and an oasis of relaxation.
The two apartments are luxurious, by every definition, with everything one would need for an extended stay.
Beautifully furnished, we felt our 3 bedroom apartment (there is a 4 bedroom as well) was our home away from home.

The grounds are beautiful and quiet with fruit trees (best figs we have ever eaten off the tree) and a lovely vegetable garden. The pool and pool house are just beautiful with the architecture and colors reminding us of the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean. The grounds also has a forest with a hammock and picnic area.

Hosts provided a very helpful binder with local information. The property is just 5 minutes from Ibi where there is some good shopping, coffee shops and restaurants and a large indoor market. There are many historic sites within an hour's drive and the beaches are about 30 minutes away. Valencia was only and hour and a half away.

Very family friendly - as we were leaving there was an extended family, 3 generations, who had booked both apartments. What a great idea.
Cannot wait to return.

“The most wonderful summer holiday”
Reviewed 5 October 2011 for a stay in August 2009

people found this review helpful

Virginia and Jack Masters are the most marvellous hosts you could hope for. There when you need them and giving you the space to enjoy a family holiday in the most glorious settings.

The apartment was newly fitted out - beautifully appointed and finished to a high standard. The views looking out of the window were wonderful and the accommodation was warm and homely with lots of lovely touches.

As Vista Alegre is set in the most fabulous grounds, we were very lucky to get Virginia's regular basket of fresh fruit and vegetables almost daily. A real treat.

There was something for everyone - the beautiful swimming pool set within its own boundary, to hammocks hanging from the trees in which you could relax and read in the shade.

I would highly recommend Vista Alegre and the special family Masters to anyone wanting a lovely family summer holiday.
