A slice of paradise

Spent a fabulous week here in April. Accommodation was superb, very comfortable beds and the villa was well equipped with all one could need. We so enjoyed sitting on the large shady terrace and using the fabulous pool. The in house menu is highly recommended, great choice and delicious. A very relaxing location with fantastic views, and a beautiful village just a few miles away. Our hosts went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and extremely enjoyable. Looking forward to visiting again very soon.

Beautiful Scenery and Relaxation

We have just returned from our lovely 2 week holidays in Bunol, Valencia. Our villa was lovey, clean, tidy and peaceful and relaxing which is just what we wanted this year. Great in-house menu provided by NIck and Jez if you don't fancy cooking or having a barbecue and we would highly recommend the Curry and Paella, which were both amazing. There is a lot to do in Valencia its self which is about 35 mins away and we spent a couple of great days out there, fabulous city but watch out for the roundabouts. There is very little to do in Bunol only 15mins so we didn't spend much time there, but we really didn't look around much either, it does have 2 good supermarkets the Mercadona which is brilliant value and good ole Lidl which is on the outskirts both within a 15 min drive. We ventured to Benidorm to visit the waterpark for the children which is nearly a 2 hour drive but it flew, great scenery and great places to stop if you need to and a great road to drive, toll fairly steep 26.00 which you pay on your return, but it wouldn't put me off. All in all a great holiday.

Peace and tranquility

Wow, what a fantastic holiday, from the first minute we arrived until we left we absolutely loved this place, we really didn't want to leave. On our first evening we were treated to a fantastic meal. The villa owners Nick and Jez were great hosts, they were there when we needed them, but always discreet. The villa, pool and views are out of this world. We would highly recommend this villa, and cant wait to go back!!

Villa Rio Magro

Suveränt boende, relaxing och helt fantastiska hyresvärdar. Spännande landskap.

Valencia and Beyond

Excellent hosts and superb house menu. Accommodation generous with three lovely double bedrooms. Great area for touring the surrounding areas on probably the best road system in Europe. Train and Metro into Valencia very easy, allow about one hour. Valencia is a 'must see' city.

Malcolm Edge Lancs UK March 2014

We stayed at Nick and Jeremy's for one week in June. We had a very relaxing holiday. The apartment is super - scenery is beautiful - everything you need for a relaxing holiday - outdoor dining area under shade - outdoor dining area in the sun - poolside is ideal. Local town/shopping is great. Very easy train ride into Valencia.

We hope to visit again!

Best regards

Hello Nick and Jeremy

Isaac and I wanted to thank you for your hospitality. Your home is truly beautiful and we enjoyed our stay in Valencia immensely. I hope we were not too annoying :) Thanks again and best of luck to the both of you!


Grace Langebeck (30th June -7th July 2008)


Hello All

I would like to thank you for such a great holiday. The apartment is nice clean and modern with everything I needed and the views are amazing. Swimming in the beautiful pool looking at the moutains is something I miss now I'm back home. The location is great and such an easy trip into the city of Valencia. You made me very welcome and again thank you I miss being there already.

Warm wishes

Hi Nick and Jeremy

We enjoyed our 2 week break at villa Magro so much that we stayed on an extra 4 days. A great rural location that is only a short drive from Valencia. An excellent holiday thanks to Nick and Jeremy making us so welcome.

Dave, Liz, Faye and Grace (7th to 25th Aug 2008).


Nick and Jeremy,

We're back in Holland now and the weather is bad (again) We had a great stay at your villa! We were even lucky to see three eagles this week! We already miss the weather, the beautiful views and the silence...

Tijn misses the pool and so do we. The BBQ you made the last evening was excellent. Good luck with all the ideas you both have to make the villa even more beautiful!


Marije, Ralf and Tijn (25 august - 01 september)


Dear Nick and Jeremy

First of all we like to say thank you for allowing us to stay in your
beautifull place. All of us enjoyed the stay very much. It was nice to
talk about many things and especially to know that we have so many things
in common. Here in Denmark has the weather been great the last two days. I
am better now. Thanks for the mint tea which I have bought now. Thomas is back
in the college and Mathias with his football and school. Ricky is back at
work. He is working hard because they have missed his working power. We
like to say thank you again and we hope to come back very soon to stay at
your lovely place. We miss the lovely view, you and the animals.

Regards from all of us Gonzalez (4th-9th Sept 2008)


Hey Jeremy and Nick!! 

We wanted to thank you for being so great.  In many ways we were in trouble, lost in Spain, until you guys came along.  The price was right and the week spent was just what we needed.  Even the pets were amazing hosts, I had to talk Angie out of permanently borrowing one the day we left.  By the way, your Paella was the best we ever had.  Later on in our trip we bought some in Soller and it didn't compare.  As far as hosts went on our 3 month European trek, none were better than you.  Thanks so much.   
Best wishes!

Thank you for the nice Xmas holiday. We loved the views, the sun, the paella, Lady and the cats.

Thanks for a wonderful 10 days. the perfect sun-drenched escape from the city. Great welcoming meal,
With the M&S beating chocolate fondants and we loved dinner on the terrace over the sun set each
night and gazing at the perfect night sky, we saw a shooting star and yes in the early hours of the
morning got to see the space station fly over.
Thanks to Lady for being such good company and escorting us on our walks... and thanks to you both for
making the visit here possible.

Steve and i had a lovely time, the weather was patchy in some places, but the peace and quiet made up
for that.
The villa has everything you need. Thanks to you both for the meal on the first night, it was
great not having to cook after being up since 2am.
Your meal on thursday night was terrific.
Good luck to you both in the future, and no doubt we will be back.

Thanks you for a great stay, we were looking for a relaxing week away before our new baby is born and

We have had a fantastic holiday, the villa is great - very comfortable and clean. Fantastic views, we all enjoyed watching the eagles flying and the villa is in a fantastic position, Thank you Jeremy and Nick for your hospitality and to your cats for the company they provided. We thoroughly recommend an art lesson with Nick, really enjoyable and even though i thought I could not paint I have taken home a picture that i am so proud of and will be put on my wall. Thank you again and all the best

Julia, Jarrod, Sophie and Alex.. Sheffield 30/08/11


Wow what an amazing villa, so peaceful (well when the children are sleeping). Great pool, love the area, locals are so friendly recommend walks around the old town in Valencia, peters and suzzannas cafes in Macastre are so friendly. We were lucky to see the local bull run and carnival. It's been fab. Nick and Jeremy are so friendly and we decided to try the art lesson even though its 20 years since my school art. Nick gave a step by step lesson and amazingly i have a piece of art i am proud to take home. I never i was capable of (highly recommended). Perfect holiday and great villa and hosts.

Liz, Stewart, Emma, Matthew.. Sheffield 06/09/11

Brilliant weather, relaxing pool......Excellent holiday

Skinner family, Scotland (26/6/2012)


Thank you to Nick and Jeremy for your hospitality and your kindness. The paella is delicious.
The villa is very nice and nice pool with great views.
The children adore playing in the swimming pool.
We visited Cortes de Pallas and it was beautiful.
We went to see the city of science and Oceanografic this and great and we suggest visiting it,

Conclusion: The holiday was ideals to enjoy and relax .......

Giraud Family, Dordogne France, (28/07/2012)


Thank you so much for a fantastic week. Friendly and attentive. A Fantastic meal when we arrived and a lovely one as we were leaving. The villa is fantastic and comfortable and a location perhaps even too peaceful to be shattered by the noise of our 3 year old son. Our apologies to your neighbours on the other side of the mountain.
To any that follow i can heavily recommend a trip to the Oceanographic and the Sciene museum, the drive up to Cortes de Pallas is stunning.
Enjoy your stay, eat their food and get as fat as you can, your on holiday
Hope to see you again.

Conan family, England, Holland, Australia (25/08/2012)

“Lovely rural setting, perfect for relaxing”
4 of 5 stars

Perfect getaway from it all setting. Wonderful mountain/countryside views, sun all day. Accommodation is the lower half of a very large villa all south facing, the owners live in the upstairs completely separate floor, with their own entrance all north facing, although still very private as they were never intrusive, however always on hand should you need anything. Lovely pool. Lovely terraced areas, both shaded and in the sun for chilling in the evenings. Lovely meal cooked by the owner on our first evening - best paella we've ever had. Would recommend

“Fantastic, relaxing retreat with beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars

Peaceful setting in the mountains with beautiful panoramic views of the countryside but close enough to all amenities with the option of a taxi service by the owner. The service was excellent and friendly, nothing was too much trouble and although they live in the apartment above you only see them if you need anything. The option to have food cooked for you is ideal if you don't want to cook yourself and the complimentary meal on the first night was excellent. The welcome pack means that you don't have to worry about shopping until you've had time to settle in. It's spotlessly clean and they will bring fresh linen if requested.
There are bikes in case you want to see the local countryside at your own pace and painting classes if you fancy trying your hand at something different.
I have stayed in this villa on several occasions and I can't wait to get back and look forward to relaxing on the patio with a cold glass of wine.

“A very welcome break!”

I've stayed at Villa Rio Magro a couple of times for a getaway break, very comfortable, modern and clean, with all amenities that anyone might need on holiday (house run on eco-friendly solar power). Hosts are welcoming and helpful, yet not intrusive. It is advisable to hire a car from the airport as I did for exploring breathtaking pine-forested mountain scenery nearby (where I got close-up sightings of two chamois), or nipping into the village for coffee/beer/tapas at an authentic Spanish bar. Spectacular Valencia city is 30 mins along the motorway, and sandy beaches another 10 mins further. However, a train from Bunol (venue for the yearly Tomatina tomato-throwing festival) is really cheap and convenient (hosts will give lifts in their car to the station for a small charge, although you can park at the station for free). Take the train in the opposite direction, past vineyards to Requena to visit a genuine Valencian winery. There are many interesting places for days out, but it's a real pleasure simply to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the villa itself, taking in beautiful views across the valley or dipping in the pool (during summer months), soaking-up glorious Spanish sun (most of year)and watching skyward for eagles and fiery sunsets. I recommend this villa to couples, groups or families for a Spanish holiday with a difference if you prefer traditional fiestas, mountain scenery, peaceful relaxation and historic castles, with the option of Valencia city for a change of pace, rather than the hustle and brashness of Benidorm-style resorts, then this is an ideal place for your holiday. If you enjoy walking, there are endless miles (kilometres?) of rough tracks to wander from the villa.
