Urbanization El Tosalet in Javea
In its time Tosalet was one of the most prestigious urbanizations in Jávea and was sought after by the inhabitants of northern Spain for its unique individual gardens and the landscaping of the area, as well as the proximity to the sandy beach and plots with sea views. Notable architectural models were built and that caught the attention of the painter Joaquin Sorolla.
Today is one of the most mature and popular residential areas with a variety of nationalities living there.
All the homes in Tosalet are built in the Mediterranean style, characterized by their wide porches (formerly Riu Raus, which were used on farms for grape drying), Tosca arches (the natural stone of Jávea) wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta floors.
It is the only development that has security cameras and a security service 24 hours a day. There are wide streets with lighting throughout the urbanization and also a community of owners (Administration) therefore it has to be taken into account that monthly fees are charged to maintain all these services.
The urbanization was expanded in three phases: Phase I, the lower Tosalet closest to the beach and where the Administration is located. Phase II is the middle part and then Phase III, the last phase to be built, is located in the upper part. This development is a tribute to the traditional landscape architecture of Jávea.
