Destacaria la comodidad de la casa y sus muchos detalles para conseguirlo, unas vistas prestigiosas, su tranquilidad con un vecindario amable y familiar. Un anfitrión que ha pensado en todo detalle para alojar a todo tipo de familias y conseguir que disfruten y se enamoren del lugar.

(It would highlight the comfort of the house and its many details to achieve it, prestigious views, its tranquility with a friendly and familiar neighborhood. A host who has thought in every detail to accommodate all kinds of families and get them to enjoy and fall in love with the place.)


We have just returned from staying at El Parral having been there from the beginning of September. We had the most wonderful time there. The villa is like home from home with everything you could need. The beds are very comfortable and all the furnishings very nice. The view from the balcony is stunning with views right down to Valencia and the coast. We loved sitting there every day having our breakfast and our evening meal out there and never tired of that view. It was lovely to take a refreshing dip in the pool after a visit into the city. The villa was very convenient for the village of Catadau where you could get all you needed for your groceries. It’s a 40 minute trip into Valencia which is a beautiful city with so much to see and the wonderful Valencia paella’s to enjoy.
Nick and Duane are the perfect hosts. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. As they live quite close by they were on hand if we needed to contact them for any reason so we had peace of mind.
If you are looking for a villa with peace and quiet and tranquility with convenience to get into Valencia and to see the Valencia countryside with its beautiful orange groves then this is the place for you. We could not recommend El Parral highly enough. We had a wonderful stay there and have taken away some incredible memories. Thank you Nicki and Duane for everything Jan and Chris.

Chris and Jan Barnett, 

Valencian cycling, used by the pros and amateurs alike for racing and training.

What can I say, from a cycling perspective this is as good as it gets.

I stayed in a villa called, El Parrel in Catadau. Perfect in every way. The owners, Nicki and Duane who live in the same town, are British, Spanish speaking, and the perfect hosts.

I clocked up 810km / 503miles....10 days.....sun kissed skin, perfect roads, courteous drivers, constant breath taking scenery....

Ideal time to come, September - April for cycling, unless you are a true sun seeking cyclist!

Super, well-equipped villa in peaceful location.

We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely villa. The owners, Duane and Nicki are a delightful couple. They have created a relaxing, peaceful holiday home and have provided everything you could possibly need. They are the perfect hosts - there when you need them but at the same time very discreet. We are keen bird watchers and found the villa to be in a good location for this. We were thrilled to see bee-eaters, hoopoes and crossbills from the veranda. The wetlands of Albufera are close-by and there are also many well marked walking trails in the area. We were so impressed by everything, we are planning a return visit.

Cette maison est magnifique, nous y avons rencontré exactement le même confort que si nous avions été chez nous il ne manque absolument rien . La vue est imprenable, le calme règne. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et sont désireux du bien être des locataires. Merci à vous Duane et Nicki.

Un moment merveilleux passé dans cette villa avec notre famille. A notre arrivée tout était très propre les lits bien faits avec une literie digne d’un hôtel. Serviettes pour piscine et douche fournis. Un cahier est mis à disposition avec tous les endroits à visiter, restaurants, supermarchés à proximité. Des détails qui font la différence... Un bel accueil des propriétaires avec des friandises pour les enfants et des boissons fraîches pour la famille. Des propriétaires à l’écoute et disponibles en cas de besoin et en même temps très discrets. Pas très loin de valencia (20-25 minutes) et en même temps assez loin pour profiter du calme. Une piscine assez grande pour nos enfants et nous et bien entretenue. Le seul problème c’est que la douche a de l’eau à peine tiède avec des enfants c’est pas top et adultes aussi d’ailleur.. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. A refaire sans aucun doute!

"A wonderful time spent in this villa with our family. When we arrived everything was very clean beds made with good bedding. Towels for pool and shower provided. A notebook is made available with all the places to visit, restaurants, supermarkets nearby. Details that make the difference ... A nice welcome from the owners with treats for children and cool drinks for the family. Owners tuned and available when needed and at the same time very discreet. Not far from valencia (20-25 minutes) and at the same time far enough to enjoy the calm. A pool big enough for our kids and us and well maintained. The only problem is that the shower has barely lukewarm water with children it is not top and adults also elsewhere .. We had a great stay. To redo without a doubt!"
