The exquisite simplicity and harmony of colours and styles. The charming fusion of different cultures and features. The respect for tradition with high, wooden-beamed ceilings, authentic stone walls, and original terracotta floors, create a charming and harmonious atmosphere where quality is the trademark throughout. Everything has been conceived to welcome and indulge the visitor, guest and friend in this home away from home.

foto1037 100Xaymaca is a stately 19th century residence, popularly known as “Aunt Genoveva’s house”, located on the edge of the small village of Benimeli, with façades overlooking both the village and the surrounding orange groves. After a lengthy and meticulous renovation, it has been converted into an stunning, self-catering holiday home, with a capacity for up to 8 people. foto2007 100Inaugurated in December 2004, this luxury rural accommodation covering 230m2, has ample spaces distributed on two floors. Xaymaca is the ideal place for holidays with family or groups of friends who share similar interests (walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers, golfers, sports enthusiasts, etc) or for those who simply wish to get away from it all and rediscover life’s simple pleasures.

Let us take you on a tour of this very special holiday retreat.

This is divided into a cosy living room, whose modern fireplace creates a stunning feature against the backdrop of stonewalls, and a dining room with a large wooden table with seating for 8 people. A unique terracotta-clad pillar divides this area from the hallway where impressive wooden doors comprise another entrance to this magnificent house.

The country house Xaymaca is located only 100m away from the rural cottage El Sequer, also owned by Jennifer and Oswaldo of Mediterraneo Rural. These two holiday accommodations offer a total capacity for 12 people, an interesting alternative when celebrating family reunions, small company meetings, incentive trips or courses, common interest activity groups, or as backdrop locations for publicity spots or audio-visual purposes.


We are planning to offer the following activities in the coming months:

  • Visits to small family-run wine bodegas in the area
  • Visits to places where local products are made by traditional methods
  • Aromatherapy massages
  • Cooking courses; other courses; craft workshops;
  • Organized activity excursions (mountain climbing, trekking, canyon descent, abseiling, boat charter, etc.


The maximum capacity of Xaymaca is eight people, including children over 2 years of age. We admit a maximum of two babies (under 2 yrs old) who sleep in cots.
Due to the original distribution of the house, it is not suitable for disabled persons or those with restricted mobility.
