The apartment is superbly located just a minutes walk from the beautiful old town of Altea and under 10 minutes down to the seafront - both locations have a great choice of bars, restaurants and shops. It is vey spacious and enjoys lots of natural light with the living area and 2 of the 3 bedrooms leading onto the large terrace. There is a sea view between the buildings and just great to sit on the terrace having breakfast and watching the light twinkling on the blue sea - definitely missing this daily treat! Stylishly furnished and sparkling clean - every facility has been thought of and provided from a hairdryer to a CD player - even handwash, plenty of toilet rolls and the all important washing machine. The underground car park is easy to access and the space is a great size. We felt incredibly safe and secure during our stay (even though not aware of any crime in the area!) as all windows had drop down shutters and the terrace access was lockable. We stayed in November and the evenings were quite chilly, but the apartment always felt warm and there was plenty of hot water, Wi-fi is very important to us and the signal was very good so we were able to research local resorts and restaurants etc. As mentioned in other reviews, there is a degree of walking up hills especially after visiting the seafront area, but we found it a great way to keep the weight off after enjoying a bit too much of the wonderful Spanish food & drink! The tram station is easily accessed and there are a number of options to use the local buses. We used the number 10 bus to go to Benidorm a few times and went to Calpe by tram. In summary, the apartment is a great place to stay to enjoy the varied delights of Altea and to visit the many wonderful local resorts. While very stylish it also feels homely, safe and comfortable - you will not be disappointed and we will be back
