About the property

3 double bedroom furnished villa built in 2006 with 2 bathrooms and 2 reception rooms. Large terrace and shared pool.

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.

Key additional features: Alarm, Barbecue, WIFI, Quiet communal pool, mountain and sea views, close to motorway, nearest beaches 10km, car essential, close to local villages full of local charm.

About Kev and Abi McPherson

Hi our names are Kev and Abi and we look after this villa on behalf of Abi's family. We all love this part of the Costa Blanca, its coast, mountains and the fact it is not too touristy like some nearby resorts like Benidorm. Our love for the local towns and culture led to Abi's Mum deciding to buy a property here in 2006.

We bought the property off plan, therefore we have been the only owners. The property is a three bed villa which comfortably sleeps six. With a shared pool and its own garden, we spend days lounging here as well as exploring the local countryside, beaches and towns.

Gata Residencial is a sleepy community with a blend of Spanish and other European families living here permanently as well as tourists. The complex is quiet, safe and rural with local charm.

We live in the UK but visit frequently. The property is managed on a day to day basis by a local resident who will ensure you settle in and will be able to provide advise on the area and deal with any issues or concerns you have with the villa during your stay.

Why Kev and Abi McPherson chose Gata de Gorgos

This lovely modern villa is located in Gata Residenical. From the hills it looks down on the beautiful Spanish town of Gata de Gorgos and Javea.

It has great views of the surrounding mountains of the Jalon Valley and the coastline of Javea. The villa is just a few minutes drive from the towns of Pedreguer, Jesus Pobre and Gata de Gorgos with an array of bars, shops and restaurants. The cosmopolitan coastal resorts of Denia and Javea are just 9 km away. Gata Residencial is approximately an hours drive from Alicante and Valencia's airports (using the AP7).

One of the key attractions to this region is it is not overly developed. It has a relaxed, friendly feel and plenty to explore, although a hire car is needed. There is plenty to see and do in this beautiful area of the Costa Blanca.

What makes this villa unique

This villa location offers a perfect balance of beautiful beaches, stunning inland mountains, and small, quaint local towns. Guests can choose to spend time sunbathing on the sun terrace or at the local beaches (approx 15 min drive away). The villa has a large, airy and spacious downstairs living space as well as three good sized bedrooms. The advantages of this villa include being located in a quiet, less touristy area which offers greater value for money.

The views of the mountains, towns and sea is stunning. The clear mountain air and 300 days of sunshine a year makes Gata Residencial a great place to stay.

You will need to hire a car but there are plenty of amenities close by including Mas y Mas supermarket, Monroe's pub and a number of towns some 10 minutes drive away.

An excellent location & property.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is just perfect, away from the crowds but so close to visit many beautiful locations - really spacious and very well equipped. It was very comfortable and the quiet, private terrace has incredible mountain views. I was nice to have some basic things like loo roll and a few things in the kitchen such as salt and pepper/foil etc. - nice touch, but the supermarket is only a few minutes drive away. The owners give you lots of information about the surrounding areas and getting around, also the caretaker of the villa is on hand locally to help/advise. We visited many stunning places along the coast and ate some wonderful meals - you do not run out of things to do. It was a lovely holiday - we will be back again one day. Thank you.

Lovely place to spend the holidays

  • 5 of 5

We are French, and after 10 hours drive, we were not deceived by the villa (even if it is not very easy to find !).

The villa is large and quiet, it has a sunny terrace with a nice view over the sea.

We have two young children aged 4 and 1 and we appreciated the air con and the fact that everyone has its own bedroom.

Lovely place, with a quiet and alway warm swimming pool at 50 meters form the house. he surroundings are nice, and the sea at 30 minutes drive.

We would have been delighted to spend a week more !!!

Thank you Abi for the help and advice you provided us !

Fantastiskt boende!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastiskt boende!

Huset var i kanonskick. Rent och fräscht. Allt man behöver för sitt boende finns i huset. Härlig uteplats där man har tillgång till gasolgrill.

Ägaren är mån om att man ska ha det bra. Allting har fungerat utmärkt i de kontakter vi haft med ägaren.

Huset ligger på en bergssida med fantastisk utsikt. Bil är ett måste för detta boende. Vi åkte dagligen till Javea och en strand vid namn Arenal som var riktigt bra. Utmed stranden finns ett flertal bra restauranger.

Den gemensamma poolen är helt ok att bada i men inget som vi ville ligga vid en hel dag.

Great base for lovely area

  • 5 of 5

It's a really nice villa, with plenty of space and everything you could possibly need for a holiday. Air con in two of the three bedrooms plus the lounge is a massive plus in midsummer. UK TV is handy too for the evening.

The terrace/garden is much bigger than it looks on the pictures. For the money, excellent value.

Just one piece of advice, a car is a must because there isn't anything within walking distance. But it's well served by roads and you have a choice of all the local beaches within a few minutes. Large supermarket is five mins drive away.

Happy family gathering for my daughter's wedding. It provided a sunny, peaceful base for the last-minute wedding preparations and trips to the seaside and local attractions. It was very clean and well-euipped. Thoroughly recommended.
