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.

We needed it to be special and it was. The apartment was perfect. Spotlessly clean, modern and had everything we needed and more. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. The pool area and facilities were great for our boys and family-friendly. The harbour is in walking distance and has a selection of nice restaurants. A car is necessary for trips to the Supermarket and days out. We particularly enjoyed days out to Altea old town, Les Fonts de l'Algar, The Dino Park, Guadalest Castle and Calpe. All within an hours drive. From the moment we booked, communication with Ides was quick and easy. Russell was very helpful and on the end of the phone if we needed him. All in all an amazing holiday which would be very difficult to surpass, which is why we will be booking again for next year. Thank you very much for having us. Wayne & Claire

Jean and Nadine greeted us upon arrival and are two of the most lovely people you could meet. Their apartment is fantastic !! Spotlessly clean with the most spectacular views one could wish for. If you choose to stay here then you won't be disappointed. Many thanks to our hosts for making our stay so comfortable and special. Gary and Jill
