About Gary

I am from the UK ,your friendly caretaker of the property and have been in the area on 25 years. I can help you with any queries about the house or the beautiful surrounding area and will be on call to solve any problems.

Why Gary chose Gata de Gorgos

The current owners bought and renovated this country farmhouse from 2004 because they wanted to live in the campo but still close by all amenities.This is a very quiet location but with easy access to plenty going on around . It is close to the main highway to get to places like Benidorm and Ondara shopping and cinema centre., and many other attractions within 30m to 1 hr drive away. You can walk out directly into beautiful countryside, with the backdrop of Montgo mountain. There are chickens and a fruit garden of oranges apples, pears , peach , figs.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This house was originally an old farm house over 100 years old with a hay loft ( the second upstairs bedroom ) and cattle keep in the courtyard and 2 wells . An eco house with 2 wells and solar panels, underfloor heating, backed up in winter with a wood burner; great for winter lets for a very spacious house with low costs. Solar pool heating to extend the swimming season.

There is a filter system for drinking water and a solar shower for after swimming.

A good area for cycling , and walking - a great time to take a walk is on light spring and summer evenings.

Beautiful Holiday at Finca de la Rana!

  • 5 of 5

In October 2017 we had a 10-days holiday at Finca de la Rana, which was very beautiful! With two families, 4 adults and 3 kids aged 6 to 9, we very much enjoyed our stay. The Finca is exactly as it is announced. Everything was in good condition, very clean and well maintained. We had all meals at the roofed terrace and used the outdoor kitchen. The kids loved to swim and play in the pool. There was plenty of equipment like air beds, snorkels etc and additional toys inside the Finca. The kitchen was very well-equipped, too. We really missed nothing. Every morning the kids fed the chicken and got the eggs as well as oranges fresh from the trees and peppermint for the tea.

During our holiday Gary came around every couple of days to check if everything is alright and to answer any questions. He made us a very warm welcome and dropped off some spanish pizzas twice and sweets for the kids.

We made different trips to the towns and strands nearby. The Finca is very well settled for day trips. Benidorm was the furthest town we visited and was reachable within a 40-minute drive. The landscape at Costa Blanca is very beautiful.

We are very grateful that we found this Finca and will come back in the near future. Karen and Gary, thanks very much for this pleasant holiday!

Fantastic Family Holiday in a Fabulous Finca

  • 5 of 5

The description of the finca was accurate. It had all the facilities that you would need and more for a large family holidaying together. Lots of toys and inflatables for the adults and the children.

The finca was very clean and well maintained. Gary the owner popped around every couple of days to check the pool and to make sure we were ok and had everything that we needed. Nothing was too much trouble. We all loved the surrounding areas and the local town which was a 20 minutes walk away. We would certainly recommend this property to our friends. Thanks Karen and Gary for a fantastic fortnight.

The family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

On behalf of all the family can I start with saying THANK YOU! We have had an amazing holiday to celebrate my dads 60th and the memories will last a life time.

The Villa itself is set in a stunning location. It was well equipped for all our needs and more. The outside space was amazing, the pool, seating area, table tennis and huge garden and the chickens :) my nephews loved the two chickens!

It's a 10 minute drive to the beautiful town of Xabia. Stunning sandy beach which we all enjoyed, amazing restaurants and cocktails!

From day one of booking I have had regular contact with Karen who was very prompt in responding to our many questions. On our drive to the villa after our flight we got a little lost, I called Gary who kindly met us to take us to the Villa. Also, we came back to some fresh bread Andy cakes which was a lovely gesture. The recommendation of ordering paella from the local bar was brilliant. Amazing food! We would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return in the future.

great place for cycling holidays

  • 4 of 5

After a good description from the landlord how to find the place we came across a clean and very lovely furnished Finca. For 8 people there is enough space inside and outside. The landlord turned up once to check if everything is fine and was commited to help if there were any questions. For cycling Holidays the spot is great as there are many interesting routes pretty close. Generally a car is a must in this area as the Finca is not situated that close to any village. Thanks Gary for the nice stay.

Javea (also known as Xabia) is a gem of a town situated on the Northern Costa Blanca. It's rugged coastline is indented with secluded coves and sandy beaches. These hidden caves and bays were once used by pirates and smugglers in the Middle Ages but are now used by sunbathers, snorkellers and scuba divers.

Javea is situated on the most easterly point of mainland Spain about 100 km from Valencia and 90 km from Alicante.

Javea has been voted environmentally near perfect by the World Health Organization and boasts 320 days of sunshine a year.

A very popular part of Javea is the Arenal's main sandy beach, perfect for bucket and spade lovers. The waters are shallow and very safe for bathers. Many of the beaches have been awarded the 'blue flag' for being particularly clean and well maintained. A host of restaurants and bars is located along the entire length of the Arenal. In the summer evenings you can enjoy visiting the many stalls that are erected on the promenade--e.g silver jewellery, local paintings, leather

other Activities:

Water sports:

It is possible to hire out windsurf and motor boats, jet skis , pedalos, canoes from Javea main beach and windsurfers on the stony shores closer to the port of javea. There are guided jet ski tours that go as far as Benidorm ,or at least close - but exploring the rocky coastline , and secluded beaches and caves is really fantastic- the scenery is awesome.

The sea is generally calm and fairly flat , but when the sea gets up ,surfers appear and you can buy body boards cheaply .

Walking and cycling -there are many established walks and cycle routes. Info on these is in the villa or at tourist offices and on large maps by the beach.

Visiting other towns and markets . Each town has market day and there some interesting antique markets in Jalon and Jesus Pobre

Golf- there are 2 golf clubs nearby . The Javea golf club and La Sella is on the way to Denia at the Marriot golf resort.
