Make a holiday apartment or villa in Altea your home away from home

Altea, on Spain’s celebrated Costa Blanca is a region with much to boast about. The area is blessed with fine sandy sweeping Mediterranean beaches, striking hills for walking and riding, and resorts of all description from the lively Benidorm to the traditional Altea, to the secluded coves and bays of the Calpe coast, and a selection of Altea properties to suit all tastes and needs.

Places to holiday in Altea, Spain

The town of Altea originated as a fishing village, and I am pleased to say that despite the increase in tourism and development, the town has certainly not been ruined by huge apartment blocks or massive hotels. The town still relies on private Altea properties and self catering villas to house visitors. The best place to explore this quiet Costa Blanca town is the plaza, situated on a high spot overlooking the coast. Markets erupt in the evenings, when many are out having a meal or relaxing drink.

Benidorm is a more lively resort. With four miles of golden beaches and a huge range of entertainment and pubs, Benidorm is on of Britain’s favourite holiday destinations. There are theme parks, extensive shopping and great facilities for children, as well as a huge range of Altea properties, from self catering villas to town houses. Benidorm is also the main departure point for many of the regions fabulous day trips, excursions and adventure rides.

Close to Benidorm lies the unique town of Finestrat. It is a charming old village, which is not only a small mountain village, but also a beach resort!

The villages surrounding Altea should not be ignored on an Altea holiday. The village of La Nucia with its Sunday market is especially worth seeing.

The location couldnt be better but would be best to have arental car to maximise this great location. the villa is huge with plenty of room as we came with 3 families and like a bit of personal privacy as we all do. |There are two bedroom upstairs and 3 more downstairs with a downstairs living room that converts into a bedroom if necessary but also this room is seperate from the upstairs entertainment and nice just to sit relax and chillout. TV and wifi throughout the house with all the channels. We really couldnt ask for more. The owner even suggested restaurants and bars that they would recommend and we took them up on these and were not disappointed. I will go back hopefully this year again maybe over the Christmas Period. Golf course close bye 9 hole but very challenging and green fees very affordable. Plenty of activities to enjoy in this area. ideal for cycling enthusiasts. Wish i had brought my bike but there are plenty of bike rentals nearby. The location of this property is top-notch, second to none. We all had a brilliant stay and thanks agai to Graham and Charlotte and especially Steve who helped us out with whatever we needed (not that we needed much. Thanks again, See ye again next year
