There are 2 good size fans to be used in the summer but I find that it is possible to create a draft and keep windows open. It is safe since windows have roller blinds and wrought iron bars. For the cooler months there is a blow heater that is all you need to bite the chill.
The apartment is very uncluttered and has the minimum necessary to make the most of the space bur still making it cosy. A foldable cot can be available on request. It would be safe for children and elderly people since there are only six steps to negociate from the street.
There are six steps from street to doorstep so people with limited mobility could manage but there is not a ramp for wheelchairs.
Montecala is now looking greener and there are trees, flowers and bushes growing in all the streets. The 2 pools are just 2 minutes walk from the apartment and are beautiful. See the photos!. Changing rooms and toilets. Outdoor shower cabins. Their size requires a life guard. There are sundeck chairs in the pool area accessible only to residents of Montecala.
There is also a bar selling drinks and light meals. The Centro Comercial “Los Lirios” offers nearby restaurants but you can also visit the main social area with more shops and services at only 10 minutes drive just after the beach.
Jávea 5 km and 18 holes
Benitaxell 3 km and 9 holes
Club Ifach 15 km and 9 holes
This a fantastic place if you want to relax and take it easy. You must love the sun and the “dolce far niente” as the Italian say. Once you stock your fridge with some nice food from the local markets or supermarkets you can decide if you spend the day in the beach, go diving or the pool and then drive down to Moraira for fresh fish and ice-cream. You can play golf or explore the many little villages around, visit weekly food and clothes markets (with fantastic bargains!).
You can relax and watch a wonderful sunset. Montecala is still very new and fresh and there is a feeling of space around despite the large scale of the urbanization.
In the cooler months there are many mountain paths you can take to reach spectacular views in the surroundings of Serrania de Bernia. This is an area of outstanding beauty and a traditional holiday spot for Spaniards.
Cala Moraig is a small sand and pebble beach. Blue Flag emerald green clear water. It is 10 minutes drive from the apartment but you need a car since it is very steep to get down.
Favourite spot for divers who enter the cave at one of its sides. Sundecks, umbrellas and pedalos for hire. 2 small bars offering affordable and home made meals and paellas. Moraira and Jávea are at 15 minutes drive. Denia 30 minutes drive. This stretch of coast has small hidden coves to explore.
Valencia is 110 Km from Benitaxell. Motorway “Autopista del Mediterráneo” 8 euros one way. Exit 63. You may take the A road instead.
Alicante is a bit closer. 80 Km. Motorway or A road. The theme park “Terra Mítica” is worth a visit on your way to Benitaxell.
Use of car is essential due to the steep and dramatic cliffs around Montecala.
Teulada, Benissa and Moraira are small villages at less than 30 minutes drive. Benissa and Teulada have a lovely old part and a weekly market worth exploring. Festivities take place in August with “verbenas” or street parties with music and dancing.
Moraira has a lovely fishing harbour with plenty of good restaurants. Jávea, 8km. Its promenade is a riot of colours and fragrant aromas from freshly cooked local food in the evenings. The best and cheaper fish place is at the end.
Although Montecala is an oasis of calm you do not have to go very far if you want more action. There is an excellent restaurant in the Cumbre only 15 minutes drive from the apartment and a very well stocked supermarket with plenty of English brands.
But if you want to be more adventurous this is the land of rice and fish. Benissa, Gata de Gorgos, famous for its wicker works and baskets, all villages have their speciality, sweet or savory. Check the local “Hornos” (Bakery) for delicious cakes and pastries.
Weekly markets, history in Denia, Calpe and its massive rock. This part of the Costa Blanca is called “Marina Alta” and is blessed with a fabulous coast line, full of small coves and beaches. The light house of Cape La Nao is worth a visit following the maritime road that takes either from Benitaxell or Jávea.
You can find abundant information about seasonal activities when you arrive if you visit the local shops since they all stock the weekly bulletins with what’s on.
The beauty of Cumbre del Sol is that because there is people living there all year round the services in the area are reliable. There is plenty of peace and quiet but if you wish to be more social you can find plenty of opportunities to do so if you get in your car and go.
