                                                                                                      5 of 5

It's a magnificent building in front of the sea, where you can walk up to the old town and church in the evenings, next to the local fisherman port where the boats arrive early in the morning with their catch. Very ample space and nice porter and neighbors. Lots to do in Altea and surroundings local towns. The only downside is that the building doesnt have a pool.
