Recommending Hondón Villas #3

VIDEO TESTIMONIALS : Hondon Villas would like to thank Nick and Lindsay for talking about their new llfe in the sun and their experience buying through Hondon Villas.

Q. Tell us about your new retired life out here in Spain?

N: It’s so much better, don’t you think? 100% better.
L: Yeah. It’s getting away from the rat-race really [laugh]. It’s just so much more relaxing. I can’t pick one thing really. It’s a whole combination of things I think.

N: Yes, we’ve met some lovely people here who have been very helpful, Spanish and English.
L: There’s some really good restaurants, nice food and it’s given us the peace and quiet and the ability to relax in a way we couldn’t in the UK.

L: We are looking forward to going to the Spa Baths (Fortuna) soon and the markets are a great place to go. We go with friends there and when we’ve done our shopping have coffee and relax usually sat outside in the sun. Yeah, it’s great.

N: People have been really helpful actually. Both the Spanish and the English. Brilliant. Really great.

L: People seem to genuinely have the time to stop and chat. Again it’s more relaxed than we experienced in the UK.

Q. How would you describe your experience with Hondon Villas?

N: They couldn’t have been more helpful without a doubt. They showed us properties that we didn’t imagine we would like. Which was really good as I had a set view of what I wanted. They showed us lots of different properties one of which we totally feill in love with and bought!

L: … just impressed by their professionalism, kindness and friendliness. And after buying the house, just all the help we had to settle in, because moving to a new country is a quite daunting prospect even though we were excited. But they smoothed the path and the after-sales service was brilliant, better than we could of expected.
N: Nothing every seemed too much trouble for them. They were always so helpful, friendly and willing with everything we asked.

L: We always felt that we could just pick up the phone if we had a problem or a question. they just helped us every step of the way. They certainly made us less anxious than we would have been about the prospect (of buying a villa in Spain) because there is a lot of bureaucracy to go through but we always felt that Hondon Villas could help us find the answer.

L: I don’t know if any other estate agent would go that far to make us feel at home.

Bliss! Working in the Hondón Valley

Hondon: Tranquility, Beauty and Warmth

Hondon Villas suggest you join us for the Good Life!

Having lived and worked in the Hondon Valley for years we know the area quite well and the best bit of being in Real Estate you get to see more of the geography than most! Here is a short video that might just give you an idea of it’s beauty and tranquillity.

### Please SUBSCRIBE to the Hondon Villas Channel ###

Here we can only give you a glimpse of the local Hondón countryside and towns but we hope you understand why we love the outdoor lifestyle here.

So, yes the Hondon Valley has become one of our offices (well the best one really!) as we value, list or sell homes for our vendors. As you can see there are some excellent vistas that are a delight in all seasons!

Please we suggest you make time for a country walk or drive through the old “camino” roads. You will just marvel at the changing light, shadows, rural settings 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!

Recommending Hondón Villas #2

VIDEO TESTIMONIALS : Hondon Villas. Irana Davidson talks about her experience buying her Hondón Valley home through Hondon Villas.

What was the main reason you chose the Hondón Valley?
We actually fell in love with the village to start with (Hondón de los Frailes). We sat at the 28 Restaurant and we looked down the village and we saw it had everything we imagined we wanted.

Why would you recommend Hondón Villas?
The name “Hondón” being associated with Hondón Villas seemed a natural choice. As I said before, we were never pushed into looking at any property. We looked at properties that we chose. And when we decided on the property we wanted it then became a real hand-holding process.

Not speaking Spanish it (the buying process) became quite daunting. But everything was basically done for us. We were taken to the notary. We were given real good advice. And once we had bought the house it was more hand-holding.

Anything we needed, whether it was to do with the property or not I could contact Maureen and she’d say “Right, OK, fine. We’ll sort it!”

And we felt we were looked after. They were more friendly than a lot of places we went to. We were not pushed into looking into anything, it was what we wanted to look at.

How do find the social side of Hondón?
I think the first social event I went to, I was invited by Maureen from Hondón Villas. She invited me to the Ascot Ladies Day which was fabulous because at the time Charlie (my husband) was away in Scotland for a wee while so it was a fantastic way for getting to know people.

You do feel like you can walk through the village and people will speak to you. You can go for a coffee and someone will speak to you. … we rescued a dog and you get to know people through that. I find it very social here.

Restaurants: Hondon de los Frailes

We get asked about restaurants and bars available in the Hondon Valley areas. There are plenty to choose from in Nieves, Frailes, La Romana, Abanilla, Fortuna and the surrounding areas. Here we list bars and restaurants for Hondón de los Frailes.

There are Hondon restaurants and bars to suit all pockets / budgets. They do change owners and menus on a regular basis so we advise you ask locals or call the restaurants direct. Or you can check out Tripadvisor (or similar) for more up-to-date reviews. As we all have different tastes and expectations we shy from full reviews, ask around or better still go and make your own mind up…. But is is important to show support for local trade after all. Use ’em or lose ’em.

the premier and local Estate Agent for the Hondon Valley.

Converted into a B&B, bars and restaurant this has the look of an old Spanish hall but with all the mod-cons. It has had a chequered history with many owners trying to make a go of it. As we write it is run by Dutch & Spaniards and seems to found its niche in Spanish food and culture with live music and value menus. Being so large it can cater for large parties, events and fiestas. The opening times and days vary and they tend to have limited opening days in the winter so please check before you go.

Who needs a Drone??+++ Google Earth Video +++It was such a beautiful day today I decided to extend my Sunday walk further than I normally do along the playas! I walked from Albir to as far as Restaurante El Cranc Chiringuito, L'Olla beach near Cap negret. I am so glad I did even though I overdid the walking and hurt my leg! There are some nice "hidden" gems along this way, I guess this time of year it's better. Anyway, as I have also been learning Google Earth I compiled a "flight" to show the Albir / Altea coastline… (Google Earth is pretty amazing!!) Hope it's useful and interesting… and sorry, but it's me playing the guitar soundtrack! 🙂 Have a great week. We love Albir!

Recommending Hondón Villas #1

VIDEO TESTIMONIALS : Hondon Villas. Sue and Dean Savage tell us why they would recommend Hondon Villas… We are pleased to be the first local Hondón agent to use Video Testimonials… watch out for more soon.

Dean:
I think because you don’t feel pressured into buying something. And you know that you are being looked after. We’ve looked at lots of houses before we came to this one and the one thing that I felt when we were with other agents is that they were working for the vendor. But with Maureen we felt she was working for us as well. We’d been to other agents who we told what we wanted but they still took us to other properties that were no where near what we wanted, just because they wanted to show somebody that the agent was taking us to their house.

Where as with Maureen she just showed us… she was working for us and was honest with us. She’s say, ‘That is not right for you’ or ‘yeah, ‘I think this one is’. That’s why I would come back (to Hondon Villas) and use Maureen again.

SUE:
“You just felt safe. That is the word I would use. You felt actually safe in her confidence”.

Sue:
Because we were in Maylasia, everything had to be done through Hondon Villas. Maureen made that really easy and helped us with moving in, what was left in the house … actually, the whole package. And you just felt safe. That is the word I would use. You felt actually safe in her confidence.

Dean:
And picking up from that, when we did arrive (in Hondon) the after sale package was really useful and helpful. Actually meeting us at the house with the keys to make sure we happy and OK. And whenever we had a problem, Maureen and her team have been on the end of the phone. So all we had to do was give them a call or walk into the office and nothing was too much of a problem.

Hondon Villas are a featured agent on the Channel 4 TV “A Place in the Sun” program and a AIPP member committed to better standards.
