Make a self catering villa in Aigues, Costa Blanca, Spain your home away from home

The village of Aigues is located inland, between Alicante and Benidorm, offering a rural retreat yet just 10 minutes drive from the white sand beaches of Costa Blanca.

Aigues has a well-stocked supermarket and some bars and restaurants amidst the well-preserved brightly coloured houses. Families will enjoy the nearby water parks and the fun of nearby Benidorm.

The 14th century Moorish tower and the spa are two landmarks to look out for when exploring the town, along with the old village washhouse. A local market sells fresh produce each Wednesday and a craft market is held once a month in the village streets offering local handicrafts for sale.

Very Good.

4 of 5
Very good location and excellent views. My wife and I know the apartment block from many years ago and it is still the same albeit modernised to some extent. The apartment itself needs the balcony doors looked at because they don't lock properly but apart from that really nice. The location is ideal because it is 1 minute walk to the beach, close to bars. , restaurants and shops but very quiet in the evening. I think the surrounding buildings block the noise. I would definitely stay here again

Best family chill out zone in Alicante.

5 of 5
Family holiday at this location 1st - 15th July, nine adults and three children. The villa has enough space for couples to have quite time around the grounds or in three reception rooms, one that is for adults only. Two kitchens, smaller one for light meals the larger one for family cooking all modern utensils. Coffee pot was cracked on closer inspection, Manolo had this replaced within two hours with a brand new machine. Excellent service. Any faults during our stay Manolo had the issues cleared within the hour ie fridge leaking, toilet not flushing. Would recommend this Villa to family and friends, in the process of planning our return next year. Public transport is excellent, bus trip to the city €1:45, taxi €10:50 single trip. SuperMarket 10 minute walk, check timings. Santa Faz, 7 minute walk, couple of small bars/cafe and a hotel plus open air market. Alicante is not a major tourist area as yet and English speakers are few. Our son had an app that translates English to Spanish that helped a lot but you miss out on learning a few words of Spanish. Would I do anything different? Yes, I would hire my own car and bikes.
