The ultimate Tots holiday designed by us
Costa Blanca, Spain
Price from £1,362 - £2,703 per week
Sleeps up to 6 in total plus 3 infants in cots in 3 bedrooms
Olive, part of Almond Grove, has been many years in the making, starting from day one with an exacting Tots To Travel brief which hosts, Nikki and Andy have delivered to perfection.
The result? Every single detail has been designed specifically with your tots in mind and with how families really holiday. That means there are loos in places that make sense, slopes for buggies, specially designed toddler pool and plenty of play. Plus much, much more.
Included in your stay:
The star of the show is the gigantic heated pool with separate toddler section, closely followed by the equally large playground, both safely gated. So plan for many happy hours splashing in the pool and playing games with new found friends. The facilities are shared with the two other villas at Almond Grove.
All against a backdrop of jaw dropping Valencian scenery; endless fields of almond groves and rolling hills. The complete peace and tranquillity here will only be broken by little ones laughing, barbecues sizzling and your tots jumping in the pool, again!
Pop open a cool drink from the poolside bar while your kids get busy in the shade of the indoor play room which is bursting with toys then reconvene for an ice cream under the terrace to debate who can bounce highest on the huge trampoline.
And for days out? Spend long, lazy days on the incredible sandy beaches of the Costa Blanca coast, discover colourful markets and picturesque villages or take a trip to the nearby chocolate factory.

We had a fantastic stay at Olive at Almond Grove. It's in a beautiful location in the mountains. Hosts Nikki and Andy are lovely. The villas are really well equipped and there is so much here for little ones (amazing pool, amazing play areas including a little soft play, so many toys and books). The welcome pack was great - loads included and very welcome after a long journey. The extras (including the barbecue, Mummy Monday, movie night etc) were also much appreciated. I don't think the Tots website conveys just how much is provided overall! We did some great day trips but also had some more relaxing days when we stayed in and used all the facilities available. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here - it really is an amazing place.
Ashman Family, April 2019
Our 1st visit and we couldn’t be more impressed - they have thought of everything! The house are extremely spacious, clean and have all the comforts of home.The outdoor areas are very well designed, the children’s indoor and outdoor play area are just outstanding, our 3 year was there for hours! The pool is heated and perfect for a good swim or just a play. They have a fab communal area and bar offering free ice pops for children and a great selection of drinks for adults. I could just keep going about everything that is here but I actually just recommend you book a stay and try for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
Parker Family, May 2019
Absolutely beautiful villa, amazing play area, large pool. Brilliant communal bar area with an indoor play area, pool table, dart board and TV with DVD player. Plus a little soft play and ball pool in another building.
Lott Family, October 2018
We had a wonderful holiday here with our 2 year old twins and our parents. The playrooms were excellent - kept the kids occupied for hours. The playground is amazing - they loved the sunken trampoline and we loved the spongy safe floor. The pool was great, the kids bit was just right for them and there were loads of sun loungers and umbrellas for everyone. Our villa was great - really spacious - bedrooms were massive and nicely decorated. It was super clean and had everything we needed. Everything felt very safe and perfect for toddlers.The hosts were lovely, made us feel really welcome and had lots of local info.We had a lovely time, I would definitely recommend and would stay again with the family. Thank you!
Knight Family, August 2018
What an amazing week we have had at Olive, two families staying in one villa with 5 children under 5 could have been a nightmare rather than a holiday but it was everything we had hoped for and more. Beautiful villa and everything we needed for little ones, including a 6 week old baby! The hosts really cannot do enough for you, to say they go the extra mile is an understatement. It was like home from home in a gorgeous secluded part of Spain which felt very authentic. From ‘Mummy Mondays’ to welcome bbqs and a whole lot more, they have totally nailed providing a holiday experience that makes it very easy for those staying in Spain with young children. The play area is like going to a local park rather than something you expect in a small resort like this and the kids loved it. Everything is gated and you are able to relax and let the kids play. Such a relaxing week and would definitely book again! Our friends even had the first Almond Grove engagement!
Camp Family, June 2018
We stayed at Almond Grove with another family. Between us we were 4 adults and 3 children. We all had a fantastic week’s holiday. The villa itself was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed from the toys in the small playroom to the outside courtyard with bbq and playhouse. The communal areas - the pool, the playground, the indoor playroom and seating areas were perfect and meant we could all relax while still being able to keep an eye on the children while they played. The hosts put on a fab bbq on the first night and then more activities in the week like Mummy Monday and film night were really well organised. They were also really helpful with anything we asked of them and full of information. Thank you for a brilliant holiday and we will definitely consider coming back again!
Divecha Family, April 2018
We had a fabulous week here in April. The villa was fantastic - really well equipped, so spacious and lots of 'extras' that made a family holiday so much easier. Our young children had lots of space to run around safely, the playground was excellent and there was little need to leave the villa some days! As parents, this was an easy, relaxed holiday with young kids. The adults enjoyed the sunny verandah, the honesty bar, the views, location and the host's hospitality. We've booked to return later in the year.
Dowding Family, July 2018
We have had a fantastic holiday. We have already booked two weeks for next year.
Giddings Family, April 2018
We stayed at Almond Grove last week (April 2018). We had an amazing holiday and we all really enjoyed ourselves in Nikki and Andy's amazing spot. It really did feel like a home from home, and they made us feel incredibly welcome. The children loved the playground, toys and new friends. I LOVED Mummy Monday (and might have had a relaxing snooze through quite a bit of the facial). And the menfolk enjoyed cycling and walking up and down those mountains! Our eldest is still pining for her play mates and every night she asks 'when can we go back to Spain?' Thank you for a fabulous holiday!
The Banting Family, July 2017
A perfect first holiday with our 12 month old. The property was fabulous with everything we needed and more and the facilities are a child's dream come true. The area is absolutely beautiful and Nikki, Andy and their lovely family were fantastic hosts. We can't wait to return!
The Atkar Family, June 2017
We had been looking at different Villas and hotels for sometime before we discovered Almond Grove through Tots To Travel. Having three young children (aged 1, 3 & 7) it looked ideal with its gated pool, play areas and facilities. We spoke to Tots To Travel and booked a week in June. Once we completed our booking, we were kept up to date by Tots To Travel on the status of the booking and provided additional information (car hire, insurance etc). It was all very smooth. We were also contacted by the owner of the property, Nikki, who asked if we had any requests or required any additional information. The holiday itself was excellent. Once we arrived we were greeted by Nikki and her lovely family and they made sure we were well looked after throughout the week. The villa itself was very nice, exactly how you see in the photos and had everything we needed. We had a very relaxing time, which can usually be difficult with 3 kids, but having everything you need to keep the kids busy and looked after, as well as excellent hosts really helped. In terms of the surrounding area, you will need a car, but there is a nice village close by with some restaurants and we took a trip to the beach as well, which was about 45 minutes away. There are other places to visit within a similar driving distance but the kids were happy to stay at the villa with its excellent swimming pool. We would certainly recommend anyone with young children to book this villa.

This beautiful Spanish Casa has been fully renovated, combining modern interiors with practicality for families. Little ones will be in their element with their own designated play area stacked with toys and books. A floorplan is available to view in the main image gallery.
The private courtyard and enclosed garden of this villa are great for tucking into fabulous family barbecues, enjoying outdoor breakfasts, or simply for sipping on a drink as the sun goes down.
As one of only three villas in this tranquil countryside spot, expect peace and quiet but also a great place for little tots to make friends. For larger parties, all three villas can be rented out together.
Tots to Travel have worked with the owners here to build a child friendly haven. This means fun and games in spades but with safety and parent peace of mind as the priority. The huge heated pool and separate playground are safely enclosed as well as having buggy-friendly access. All a stone’s throw from the poolside bar where parents can relax while the little holiday VIPs play.
For refreshments, head to the shaded poolside terrace which has facilities for communal dining. Inside there is a honesty bar offering snacks and drinks and a playroom laden with toys. You’ll also find a freezer of homecooked meals in here, which you can purchase, and there is also shopping service and babysitting service available.
The friendly British hosts live onsite with their two young children and lovable family dog, so they’ll be on hand to help you with whatever you need during your stay. Every week they also throw a complimentary family barbecue so that guests can make new friends and mingle.
The traditional Spanish town of La Romana is around ten minutes’ drive. With a charming old-timey feel, you’ll discover plenty of wine, olives, almonds, shoe making and marble, which are still the main means of income for the town. Most importantly it has three fun play parks for little ones to explore.
You’ll also find three supermarkets, two pharmacies and a good selection of bars and restaurants ranging from traditional tapas bars to an American diner. The local markets held every Wednesday and Saturday are also worth a visit and are the perfect place to pick up some deliciously fresh ingredients.
If you fancy a trip to the beach, it’s around a 45-50 minute drive to reach some stunning golden sands. Particularly recommended is Playa Lisa at Santa Pola, which has lovely calm water and soft sand, plus a castle and an aquarium to visit in the town.
