Sehr geschmackvoll gestaltetete Altstadwohnung mit viel Liebe zum Detail. Auch die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Besonderes Highlight ist die große Terrasse mit Blick ins Grüne. Selbst im Dezember war ein Frühstück bei angenehmen Temperaturen möglich. Sehr netter Kontakt zur Eigentümerin und Verwalterin. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder....

The lounge/ diner was very comfortable, and it was good to have English tv...not that we go on holiday to watch tv but it was good to keep up with the recent world events! We didnt use the pool just because it was November and a little chilly, but it was only about 4 steps away from the patio! Casa Leah was well placed for the old town,Church,square etc....so many amazing places to eat and drink even if we were out of season! Altea is on a hill,so not very good for people with mobility problems! In saying that we came home fitter than when we arrived! Mark was a pleasure to deal with over the booking and gave us some great info on the area before we arrived. Coni the manager and next door neighbour was very pleasant and helpful on our arrival. All in all a successful holiday! Thank you!

Even though we were three generations, we had room and space to both be together in the house, and also to be more private, it was all up to ourselves how much we wanted to be social, which was very relaxing. It felt like a real home. The house is really beautifully furnished and equipped, nice and clean and well-maintained, and we had everything we needed there. The owners are also lovely, and provided everything we could wish for during our stay. The customer service could not have been better! It was also a joy to be able to just step up a few steps, and find ourselves outside the splendid church at the top of Altea, with its beutiful view of the bay, the mountain in Albir and the cliff of Calpe, and with the restaurants all around. Or walk down some picturesque streets to the more modern center of Altea. We took walks along the beach and visited the nearby village of Albir and went for walks in the mountains there, and we also took the bus to Benidorm one day. Altea is the perfect center of numerous places to go on this coast. I recommend this beautifully located house to everybody!
