Make a holiday rental, home or villa in Altea, Spain your home away from home

Altea is regularly considered the most beautiful town on the Costa Blanca. It is one of very few places along this stretch of coast which has retained much of its original character, and whilst the town offers all that is great about a Costa Blanca holiday, it is quieter and more authentic than many of the other resorts along this stretch of coast.

                                      Simply perfect

                                      5 of 5
                                      The stay was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Our flight was late and we didn't arrive until 1am, but Ron stayed up and even provided us with some snacks and some much welcome Cava! He even offered to pick some shopping for us later in the week! The apartment was stunning and perfectly clean. Very spacious, cool and in a lovely location. It was extremely quiet, and hardly anyone else around. We had the pool to ourselves pretty much all week. The marina nearby has some wonderful food, some of the best fish and seafood I've ever tasted and a gorgeous selection of wines. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway. Dafydd and Jemma

                                      Fabulous fortnight in 7th Heaven

                                      5 of 5
                                      My wife and I have returned last weekend from two weeks in this wonderful villa. We were looking for somewhere to totally chill out and relax without much noise or any interruptions and the villa completely meet that requirement. The villa was just as advertised in fact I’d say it was under sold on the web site. It was clean and well maintained had everything we needed for our stay and more besides. We were met on our arrival by Ollie and Lindsay who were the most perfect host very friendly and welcoming and very helpful but at the same time not overpowering. They made it plain that if we needed any help with anything we were to ask and we did have a couple of very minor issues, which they sorted quickly and without any inconvenience to our holiday. We had never been to Altea before and was very pleasantly surprised with the area. Not over touristy but full of Spanish culture and we certainly intend to go back. Given the time of year late September, early October we felt the weather was far better than we expected and this helped some very hot days. I would definitely recommend this villa and the welcoming owners Steven & Pat Nr Manchester, England

                                      Great Place to Stay

                                      5 of 5
                                      I never heard of Altea before until a friend of mine decided to get married there. Five of us stayed in this apartment and we were not let down. The apartment is excellent. Right on the sea front in the heart of the new town. The old town is only about a 10 - 15 min walk uphill (taxi rank just around the corner from apartment if needed). The apartment was very clean and spacious. Large balcony with sliding doors and a great view. The seperate kitchen is spacious and very well equipped (everything you would need is in this kitchen). The bedrooms were excellent and down the corridor away from the sitting room. The apartment also has town bathrooms equipped with showers.I have to say I would never have visited Altea before only for the wedding, but Altea is a beautiful town, very relaxing and this apartment was the icing on the cake. I would definitely be back to Altea and this apartment. Thanks a lot
