Put your trust in Hondon Villas, you won’t go wrong!

Maureen and her team have always been brilliant! We’ve rented a number of properties over the years through Hondon Villas and it’s our dream/ambition to eventually buy/build our dream villa. Maureen and her team have listened to our “must have/not” criteria and have shown great patience with us as our needs have changed.

Indeed over the years I like to think of Mo has our friend and then our estate agent! So, if you want an estate agent that puts the needs of clients first don’t hesitate to put your trust in Hondon Villas, you won’t go wrong! –  Sharon Buckley

Such excellent professional service . And always with a smile!
We would not have found our beautiful home if it had not been for Maureen. We can’t thank her and her team enough for the pre, during and after sales service we received. We would highly recommend Hondon Villas Estate Agent to anyone looking to buy in the Hondon Valley! – Jane Delonga

Elizabeth Chadwick reviewed Hondon Villas Estate Agent : Excellent! My husband Phil and I experienced Maureen as caring, honest, genuine and constantly helpful. We would highly recommend this company and would like to extend our gratitude to Maureen & her team. Best wishes.

Duncan Pattison : We bought our country house from Hondon Villas, this was our best decision. Mo and the team were fantastic!!!. The team are so professional and have great knowledge of the whole Hondon Valley area. Such a big move can be stressful and Mo made it all so easy for us, unlike other agents she listened to our requirements. The whole process was explained to us and any questions we had were answered correctly and honestly.  We would totally recommended and encourage that you buy your dream home from Hondon Villas. “THE BEST, WHAT A TEAM!!!”

A Place in the Sun … in the area again

As featured on TV!

Like many British Expats we came to live in Spain over 12 years ago after being seduced by those dreamy TV property programs showing a more relaxed and sunny lifestyle. Well, it is and can still be like that. These type of TV progs are still popular and thankfully for us, they still work!  Such that “APITS” is a now national gem, a staple of daytime viewing being repeated on UK Tele most days. Long may it promote a new life abroad.

Hondon Villas have been asked quite a few times to help TV property searchers over the years. One of the most recent being to help Jane and Nigel find their fab “Casa Blanca” house in Barbarroja on the “New Life In The Sun” series (Channel 4)… they are loving it!

Jane de Longa : You’re so right we are loving it !!! Nigel and I are so very glad we found the Hondon Valley to live in . . it’s been nearly a year since we first came to the valley and it was love at first sight with the valley and our lovely home!!

Well Maureen reports to the TV producers again this week (May 2018) in the La Romana & Hondon areas… It’s great these TV progs want to film here and more importantly that buyers still wish to move to this fab part of rural Spain.

We’ll let you know how it goes … fingers crossed the potential buyers find something they like to make their dreams come true!

HONDON VILLAS WIN WIN WIN!
We are very pleased to announce that the Hondon Villas main website [www.hondonvillas.net] tipped well over the 1.4 MILLION visitors up to Jan’ 2018! Now that’s a milestone to be proud of!

Of course having a local & central office in the Frailes village square gets us loads of foot traffic and exposure from all the locals, tourists and businesses.

Now that’s good for business and helps us get more leads and property sales in the Hondon Valley area for buyers.


Maureen, owner and manager of HondonVillas“Then we had the crash of 2008. It was difficult market and many agents, builders and developers went bust. But that also meant a new opportunity to sweep up should the market pick-up. Clearly those Hondon new builds would come on stream as the foreign investors decided to relocate or go back to their native country. And the markets for Belgium, Holland and France looked good.”

“It was slow but we stuck at it and built slowly as the market picked up. We changed a lot of things and ramped up the on-line effort and marketing. So to get the one million milestone from such a slow start is so pleasing and testament to our service standards, on-line strategy and local networking activity. Yes it’s very pleasing to know our hard work is paying off now.

You can call Hondon Villas or visit our websites for information on property buy, sell or rent. Our main office is in the main Frailes Plaza… we look forward to seeing you and another million site hits!

The main two villages of Hondon de las Nieves and Hondon de los Frailes nest in the beautiful Hondon Valley. For decades they have grown an abundance of agricultural delights such as Grapes, Almonds and Olives (the main economy).

Hondon is surrounded by an expanse of stunning mountain views and traditional arid Spanish countryside. These excellent vistas are a delight in all seasons! Take a walk or drive through the country roads and you will just marvel at the changing light, shadows and picturesque skies.

The Hondon Valley is well known for its mild climate and pleasant summer breezes, which is very welcoming in those hot summer months when temperatures rarely fall below 30 degrees. The region enjoys sunshine in excess of 310 days per year, where the air is very clean and the pace of life slow. Hondon offers a very peaceful and stress free life.

Come take a look at the Valley of the Vines, drink the local wine under the bluest of skies and feel the warmth of the Spanish sun on your face … and you’re hooked! We were! We love it!

All this in the middle of your own house and office moves, so thank you very much. ” : Ian and Nerys
