We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is very well equipped and maintained, secure, light, airy, spacious and spotlessly clean. There are two large patio / terrace areas and use of a shared swimming pool. We only stayed for one week and ate out each evening but had we extended our stay I would have been very tempted to have cooked and eaten on the terrace on a couple of occasions. It is an exceptional apartment. It is in a quiet location but not far from the seafront or the old town which is perched up on a hill. There is a large supermarket nearby. The owner - we did not meet Carolina personally but any contact we made before and during our visit received a very quick, friendly and positive response. Altea – is only 10 kilometres from Benidorm but their characteristics are miles apart. Altea and nearby areas boast numerous restaurants, cafés and bars (including some Michelin listed), great scenery, history and walking/cycling. There is a local tram making other resorts easy to visit.

Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Ron and Jenny were superb hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The area was lovely with great beaches, old town and very good restaurants. Grocery pack and being greeted on arrival was a very nice touch. We will definitely return.
