Rural House The Somni
If you are looking for apartments or a rental house on the Valencian coast to enjoy a serene weekend, a romantic holiday, or an unforgettable family reunion, you have reached your destination: Welcome to the Casa El Somni Apartments.
Casa Rural El Somni is located in the area of La Drova, at the base of Mount Mondúver and at an altitude of about 400 m (1,300 ft), approximately 15 km away from the coast of Gandía (9 mi). Surrounded by a nature preserve, this beautiful Mediterranean setting was chosen by a Franciscan order as a retreat for its sisters. With the passing of time, the order moved to a new location, and the property was eventually put up for sale.
In 2004, the house was purchased by the current owners and renovated to share it with anyone who can value both its peace and its ideal location. The plot occupies an area of 3,900 m2 (42,000 sq ft) and the house has a floor area of 850 m2 (9,150 sq ft).
Casa Rural El Somni is divided into two areas — the apartments /and the owner’s house. The entrance gates are separated on two different streets to ensure complete privacy. The common areas of the house make up the rest of the property featuring several different large terraces on the hillside.
Styled in a verdant tiling reflective of the countryside, our 10 x 5 m swimming pool (33 x 16.5 ft) is accompanied by comfortable hammocks, a woven pergola, and a spacious solarium. The swimming pool is surrounded by a wonderful Mediterranean garden, a legacy of the Franciscan nuns, which Berta has since restored. The aromatics, cypresses, olive trees, laurels, fan palms, arbutus, persimmon trees, jacarandas, tilias, and many other climbing and flowering plants turn El Somni into a Mediterranean dream — “somni” means “dream” in Valencian. Additionally, the house features a lookout where you can view the mountains, a chill-out area under the fig tree, a pine grove, a sitting area on the arched porch with a ping pong table, a paellero, and outdoor furniture everywhere.
