What can I say about this house… I don’t want to give it an excellent review because I don’t want to share it with anyone else!! Only joking we found this house last year and after our first stay we loved it so much we came back this summer and have already booked for next. To be honest we’ll probably book every summer until the children are grown up!! It’s in such a perfect location… close to everything you need yet you would never ever realise how close you are to everything.. it’s so quiet!! The house itself… a lovely 3 bedroom all excellent size rooms. The grounds are massive and the pool is huge. I absolutely love the stationary umbrellas(I’m sure that’s not what they are called they have a proper name) where you can sneak in the shade if you need to. The pool is in the sun from about 11.00 until about 5.30 and then once the sun has snuck around the trees then it goes back over the pool at about 6.30/7pm. I can’t recommend this house enough and the owner is a pleasure to deal with. I literally can’t wait for us to return next year… oh and you have to try to India restaurant at the top of the street (Base Camp) it’s the best Indian I have ever tried! Also Bar Grizzleys is fab too!!

We had a great time at the villa in July 2020, booked only a few weeks before the departure date and had really good and efficient communication with Heather. The villa is as described with fantastic comfortable beds, large pool and wonderful private garden. The few restaurants a couple of minutes walk away were really useful when you didn't want to go too far. There was plenty of information in the villa with ideas for places to visit. We went into Calpe a few times and were able to walk back at the end of the evening (as it was cooler) so it was definitely walkable (we are not fit at all). We would love to visit the villa again when we are able. I would not hesitate to recommend the villa.
We Love it!

Our second visit to this beautiful villa and we love it. The location is peaceful yet convenient for all facilities-shops, bars, beach etc. A great base to venture out to nearby attractions such as Algar waterfalls, Guadalest or just 20 mins to Benidorm via the motorway and only 1 euro 75 cents. The villa is very comfortable , air conditioning throughout and well equipped. The large pool is the main attraction for our swimming loving family, and the BBQ and seating area were our choice of eating area. Every step of booking the villa, holiday and return are managed wonderfully by Heather so you really have peace of mind and confidence in booking - we will definitely be booking again!
Couldn't be more perfect
Hanna & family, February 2018
Wow! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this beautiful place to anyone. It was perfect for us. Fully equipped and an amazing pool. Clean and tidy on arrival and fantastic helpful information given by the owner who is a pleasure to communicate with. If you’re considering this villa please just book it. You won’t regret it. It’s perfect xx

Villa très propre avec une literie exceptionnel,une piscine agréable toujours très propre. nous avons apprécié les échanges avant la location avec le propriétaire. Ils ont toujours été à l'écoute et répondu aux mails que j'ai envoyé. Je recommande vivement cette location.
A really nice villa in a good location
Neil & family, February 2017
My wife and I have just returned from a month's holiday in Casa Dryllig and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa is very handily located on the outskirts of Calpe just off the main coastal road from Calpe to Moraira.
The booking procedure from start to finish was seamless; mainly because Heather (the owner) took care or everything, supplying all the necessary information and keys to the Villa in plenty of time prior to our departure. The villa was very easy to find due to Heather's instructions and map.
The Villa itself is really nice. The living room/lounge is spacious and very comfortable with a good-sized TV which receives all the usual terrestrial channels (BBC, ITV, etc) via a satellite dish. The free wi-fi worked well and was an added bonus. The bedrooms are light and airy and I have to say that the bed we slept in was not only very large but one of the most comfortable we have ever been in. Although we only used one of the beds, all of the beds were made up prior to our arrival with fresh high quality bed linen (not always the case in some of the villa we have stayed in over the years). The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay with constant hot water on tap. Our only observation would be that a larger toaster might be appreciated by larger parties staying in the villa. (now provided! - Heather)
The outside patio/pool area is excellent and caught the sun all day during our stay. We didn't use the pool during our stay but made use of the sunloungers. Winter evenings in Spain can be pretty chilly but we found the air conditioning was first class and we never felt cold at all during our stay.
There are several bars and restaurants nearby, the two nearest are Grizzly's (Steak, Bratwurst, burgers, etc) and Base Camp (top quality Nepalese). They are literally a one minute walk away and well worth a visit. We used both during our stay.
The promenade in Calpe is about 3 minutes away by car and there are lots of bars and restaurants dotted along the front. There is a Lidl about 5 minutes away by car and an Aldi slightly nearer.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay and would like to thank Heather for making the whole experience a good one.”
John, Mel & family, August 2016
Lovely clean comfortable villa. The owner clearly has pride in both the organisation of the booking process and the actual villa. The pool is huge, our Grandson loved it with plenty of pool toys available. The very short walk to the bars and restaurants at the end of the lane proved positive with Grizzilys the clear favourite. A return visit is a must.
The Gardners (Scotland), August 2015
The villa is a good size and well equipped. The pool is amazing, and the wee selection of inflatables, which we added to, was great.
The Indian/Nepalese restaurant, Base Camp, round the corner is AMAZING, we visited 4 times LOL and Grizzly's burgers are awesome. It's a wee trek down to the beach front where you can find loads of places to have lunch or dinner and the wee train (4 euro return pp) is great for popping over to the other side of the rock for shopping and eating too.
A day on the beach is recommended (Zumba at 11am) you'll see when you get there hahahaha
I would recommend a car for touring around and supermarket shopping.
On the whole, we enjoyed our stay and may return one day.
The Townsends, July 2015
"This was our 2nd time at Casa Dryllig and the bar had been raised even higher! It was a real home from home. Heather was ultra efficient in the run up to the holiday and with the after care on our return. Also saved us by a prompt call after we had left the villa to inform us that we had left a bag containing passports!!
The villa itself is well equipped with everything there you could wish for. The air con system is very good and allowed for immediate cooling off. The highlight for me and my family was the private outside space with large pool which we could light up at night. Many an hour was spent in it - morning noon and night! The villa is well located for Calpe and its restaurants and beaches. It also has 3 fabulous restaurants at the end of the quiet lane. We have never returned to a holiday destination before Casa Dryllig as like to experience new places but when you find a gem like it then it is wonderful to keep returning - which we plan to do again soon.
Thank you Heather.
Stuart & family, July 2015
This was our first family holiday abroad and we were not disappointed. The Villa was excellent, in a quiet residential area of Calpe. The swimming pool was huge for a private pool and was used extensively during our stay. The service that was provided by Heather was also first class. I'm certain we will be back at Casa Dryllig again in the very near future.
Dave & Sandra & party, June 2015
superb holiday the villa was fab, pool was fab, and the whole experience from Heather was 1st class, you run a well oiled machine your info and service is second to none.
Just gets better
Gary, Jo and family, May 2015
We took our nieces to Casa Dryllig for their Xmas present as we have been there a few times before and knew the villa well . Can only say that the villa had got better than before .Loved the new sofas, plently of chairs at the table and for myself loved the new bbq. Everywhere was spotless on arrival . The girls loved the pool to the point we had to drag them out of it !!!
Calpe was as it always is ,calm ,relaxing and we all just love to sit at the Eden bar with a cold drink and watch the world go by. When you have finished being out for the day you know you have a fantastic villa and pool to go back too and just relax. We are back to Casa Dryllig in September with both lots of parents ( god help us ) and maybe a trip next June !!! Highly recommended !!!!!!!!
Stephanie & Stephen family, May 2015
Firstly the villa owner Heather is excellent, She provided lots of information about our stay in the area and the villa itself. Also at the villa there is an information book, which provided places to see and do. We stayed at Casa Dryllig with our two young children (6 years and 2) and not one of us wanted to come home. We settled in straight away with how comfortable we felt and when we came home felt like we'd been away far longer then a week. In side the villa was clean with comfortable beds.
Outside there is a fantastic pool which we couldn't get the kids out of it. There was also a spacious sunbathing area with umbrellas. The villa is in a great location with a few restaurants and a bars just a few minutes walk and then a slightly longer walk to more restaurants, bars, shops and the beach. There isn't anything bad we can say about our stay Casa Dryllig and we will definitely return in the future.
Chris & party, September 2014
First impressions were excellent and so it continued.The pool is fantastic. Instructions to get to the villa were clear and concise. The villa is located a 3 minute drive from Calpe's nearest beach and you can walk it in 15 minutes stroll. The resort has an excellent selection of resturants and the wider area is well worth exploring. Thank you Heather your villa is superb.
We really enjoyed our stay
Sam & Mitch, July 2014
Everything was well organised from the booking process through to key returns ,Heather was on the end of the phone which was great, also residents Tina or Rosie if you encounter a problem.we are very fortunate to have stayed in a number of villas within calpe and surrounding areas with both private owners and james villas I have to say hand on heart this comes within the top two better by far than James villas,you have top class information in the villa hand book and you can tell heather has taken time doing it ,villa was very clean inside and out ,everything you would need was provided for you inside and out,most of all for us which we have never had in all the villas we have stayed was sun lounger cushions. Great pool man very attentive to the pool and friendly ,also we found that the pool was easily access ed via steps which slopped in and not vertical into the water .not many steps around the villa was good to,so anyone with slight walking difficulties would be fine although no hand rails anyway around villa
Adam & family, July 2014
Casa Dryllig is perfect for families with young children. We travelled with our two (one is 6 years and the other 14 months). One major problem we have found in the past is that youngsters find it hard to sleep due to the heat, but this villa has air conditioning in every room, which is quite rare in our experience. The large pool is terrific, and there were lots of floats and toys available, to which we added a large inflatable dolphin!
Location is excellent walking distance from restaurants, bars, beach and shops, and only a couple of minutes in the car from larger supermarkets.
The communication with the villa owner Heather was also excellent both before and after our stay. We couldn't find fault with our stay at all, and would highly recommend Casa Dryllig.
We can't wait to return in the future.
Young and old alike, perfect!
Peter & Elaine, May 2014
This was our 2nd year at Casa Dryllig, this time with friends our age. They were very impressed with all the facilities and especially the heated pool, we found ourselves swimming 30 lengths a day, good considering we are all over 60. The kitchen is well equipped as I cooked most nights, (Just because I love to ). we ate out in the garden all but one night, it was a beautiful setting with the lights from the pool, just magical. The inside decor is of a good standard, just about all could you could want.
Close to Calpe just 15mins walk down the road / cliff walk. Even Fustera was only 25mins walk away. Good restaurants close by, German Bar at the top of the road did some fantastic Gin and Tonics, and not too expensive.
All in all fantastic and will be booking again for next year.
Outstanding villa, great location, very clean, stunning pool.
Gordon & party, April 2014
We've been fortunate enough to have stayed in several private villas across Spain and this is by far our favourite of all. The villa was in a perfect location, in a quiet and fairly affluent area, but a very short distance to the local bar, restaurant and little shops. It was also easily walkable to the main beach and town centre for the days we didn't want to drive.
The villa was in very good order, with plenty of room for the 4 adults and 2 children in our party. The highlight was the heated pool, which was a perfect size, and the main attraction of the villa. The house was so good, we struggled to persuade the kids to ever leave!
The communication with Heather was exceptional. The whole process of booking and getting the keys etc., very straightforward and incredibly friendly. Hope and pray that Casa Dryllig is available for your dates.
If it isn't - change your dates! We'll be back again soon.
Debbie and party, June 2013
We had the most amazing time in the villa. It is in such a wonderful setting, so peaceful and in private residential location. We stayed in the villa with two young children under the age of eight and we found the pool to be the highlight of their week. It is just out of this world. The villa itself is perfect for young and old alike. Very private and enclosed.
We would love to stay there again if we should ever visit Calpe in the future. Everything is within a short walking distance, restaurants, bars, supermarkets and beaches all within easy reach.
We would highly recommend Casa Dryllig to any holiday maker wishing to visit Calpe. 10/10 for us.
