Bed and Breakfast : Los Gatos Valencia, Spain
Set among the almond groves, B&b Los Gatos offers an alternative, artistic and tranquil setting for a weekend away or a longer stay. As it is only 15 minutes away by car from Chulilla it also offers a perfect place to stay if you are keen to go rock climbing in Chulilla or enjoy one of the many beautiful walking routes there, or just simply to take a dip in one of the refreshing streams and natural pools there.
Los Gatos offers two colourful and comfortable double rooms, ( with a third single possibility also available, if necessary ), a bathroom, separate entrance, and a large roof terrace, with a lovely view looking out on to the mountains, which is solely for the guests to enjoy. On the terrace the guests are served the delicious vegetarian and organic breakfast, with homemade bread, eggs from the chickens and seasonal fruit from the garden. Vegans and people with allergies are also happily catered for at Los Gatos.
Los Gatos also offers made-to-measure art workshops, adding an extra creative dimension to your holiday.
The name Los Gatos (gato is spanish for cat) originates from the fact that it is also a bit of a cat sanctuary, home to 13 cats, so a paradise for all cat lovers! ( though the guest area is strictly cat-free for those suffering from allergies.) You can follow the cats on the blog: Campocat.com.
Joining the cats are two small dogs, 3 chickens and a cockerel and many fish and frogs in the pond in the garden….not to mention the birds living in the palm tree at the front of the house who will serenade you in the morning!
This area of Spain is still very much undiscovered by tourists and hence still retains very much an authentic Spanish feel, despite having breathtaking mountains, lakes and villages to visit. There are many opportunities for swimming, walking, rock climbing, horse riding, cycling and even para gliding in the area.
