Located in the exclusive, landscaped grounds next to the historic Villa Gadea, everything in our luxury, air-conditioned apartment has been considered to ensure your stay is easy, comfortable and memorable.
The spacious apartment is furnished in a contemporary style, white marble floors throughout, underfloor heating and acoustic soundproofing. Full-width glazed doors lead from living and bedrooms onto spacious covered terracotta terraces overlooking a floodlit pool with sea view.
A private garden wraps-round the apartment providing all-day sun. The garden's elevation offers privacy whilst allowing easy access to the pool, and an eye to be kept on the children. When just applying more sun-tan lotion becomes too much, take a stroll through the lush landscaped grounds of semi-tropical palms and hibiscus to the secluded beach with crystal clear water and summer beach bars.
Beside this verdant, secure beachside development and just a short walk from the apartment is the five star Melia Villa Gadea Hotel which is open to non-residents. The hotel boasts a superb Thalasso spa; tennis courts; gym and overlooks 3 linked outdoor pools. There are restaurants and bars with evening entertainment.
At Villa Gadea everything for the perfect holiday is within your reach!
The unspoilt, pretty town of Altea lies 1.5kms down the coast. Here, stylish fashion boutiques jostle with cosmopolitan cafes and bars along the palm-lined esplanade. Narrow lanes of whitewashed houses, gourmet restaurants and art galleries wind up the hill to a cobbled square with bustling pavement cafes overlooked by the distinctive blue ceramic domes of the church. From here you can enjoy panoramic views across the beautiful bay with a backdrop of majestic mountains while you savour a glass of wine and some tapas. This part of the coast has a number of marinas with bars and restaurants where you can watch the local fishermen mending their nets alongside elegant yachts from all over Europe.
