Beautifully decorated and furnished with everything you would need for a very comfortable stay. The terrace was just wonderful with lovely views over a tranquil garden. The house is in a lovely part of Altea, quiet, but near the church, small shops and restaurants. We were met by Sabine, who could not have been more friendly or helpful. We would highly recommend Christina's lovely home. It was just perfect for us. Thank you and we hope to be back.
