The villa is located within Gata Residential, a hillside development overlooking the Mediterranean and surrounding mountains including Montgo. It is a quiet residential site where approximately two-thirds of the accommodation is taken up by permanent residents which gives the location a relaxed, settled and friendly community atmosphere.
Local amenities include a local bar at the bottom of the hill, a Mas y Mas Supermarket and a range of cafés, shops and restaurants in the two local villages - Gata de Gorgos and Pedregeur (both 2km from the villa). Eating out and drinking in these inland villages is traditionally Spanish and cheaper than the two larger towns of Javea and Denia (10km and 15 km) from the villa. These towns are ideal for beach goers and those who enjoy both historic charm and nightlife.
Gata Residential sits close to the AP 7, with fast links to Valencia (1 hour drive) and Benidorm (30 mins) and Alicante (1 hour for airport). There are many other idyllic resorts and towns to explore within 30 minutes including Altea, Moraira, Jalon and Alcalali.
The villa does not have its own swimming pool, however, we prefer this as we have young children. There is access to a shared swimming pool 50 metres from the villa. This pool is well maintained and is a private pool shared with other residents with access gained via a locked gate.
The 120 square metre villa was built in 2005. The rooms are on three levels, the ground floor, the mezzanine floor (8 steps up), the upper floor (again a further 8 steps up). It is modernly furnished throughout & offers all the luxuries of home. The villa also benefits from mains gas central heating perfect for that winter break in the sun.
The villa has three bedrooms with two set up as twin rooms on the mezzanine and upper levels. Both have ample storage, air conditioning and black out shutters. On the upper level there is also a larger double bedroom with an ensuite and a separate dressing area. The ensuite is the family bathroom with a bath and shower. There is also a small easterly facing terrace which looks over the Mediterranean and is perfect for gorgeous sun rises.
The second bathroom is located on the mezzanine level with a power shower unit. On the ground level is a fully fitted kitchen with a washing machine, oven, microwave, fridge and freezer. It also has great storage with plenty of equipment and cutlery.
The ground level is set up with a dining area seating 6 and a large lounge with two large sofas, and a TV with UK Freeview and a DVD player.
Outside from the dining area is a large terrace, facing the Mediterranean to the East. We have another outdoor dining area set up here which is covered by the naya. The terrace also opens out into a large area perfect for sun bathing and relaxing. 4 sun loungers are provided as are beach towels for guests to enjoy. We also have a fully functioning barbecue on the terrace for another cooking option. During summer the sun rises over the terrace at 7am and sets at the front of the house around 5pm.
