There is a great amount to see within the castle, and you may be surprised by the strong Egyptian influences within. The re-enactment of the life of the Virgin Mary or Mystery of Elche, held in the Elche Basilica of Saint Mary is a unique experience, and one which should certainly not be missed if you are lucky enough to be staying in Elche accommodation over the second weekend of August. Many of Elche’s most exciting attractions are within the old town, including the Altamira Palace, Moorish Baths and Basilica of Santa Maria, and many hours can be spent slowly wandering the beautiful streets or sipping a chilled drink in one of the pavement cafes, watching the world slowly drifting by.

The Elche Palm Tree Forest is a remarkable place to visit from any Elche accommodation. With over 200,000 palm trees, the forest is not only a defining feature of the landscape, but also of the town itself, and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A wonderful way to see the forest is from the sky, as there are plentiful opportunities to view the region from the basket of a hot air balloon. Rides last in the region of 40 minutes and are a wonderful treat to enjoy from a self catering Elche villa or apartment.

The Rio Safari Park is a fantastic place to take children from an Elche holiday rental. The park is filled with animals to see, and there are even dolphin displays to be enjoyed. If the summer heat is too much whilst touring the park, there is a fantastic swimming pool on site, complete with water slides, so remember to pack your swimming gear. Many of the holiday rental villas in Elche have pools of their own, but when daily peak temperatures reach 40˚C, you cannot possible swim too much!

I recommend having a car when renting this holiday home as the warm climate would make the shopping trips quite tiresome if walking. Only 5 minute drive to nearby shopping centers. We loved the cool pool with outdoor shower, bathroom and the great airconditioned outdoor kitchen with lots of cooling capacity. All bedrooms have aircondition units fitted which makes sleeping comfortable. The landlords were great and extremely helpful to our enqueries. Most evenings were spent around the pool with the family and kids, often cooking suppers in the outdoor kitchen. So if you are after a relaxing luxury holiday I recommend this property.

                                                                                                      Family holiday at this location 1st - 15th July, nine adults and three children. The villa has enough space for couples to have quite time around the grounds or in three reception rooms, one that is for adults only. Two kitchens, smaller one for light meals the larger one for family cooking all modern utensils. Coffee pot was cracked on closer inspection, Manolo had this replaced within two hours with a brand new machine. Excellent service. Any faults during our stay Manolo had the issues cleared within the hour ie fridge leaking, toilet not flushing. Would recommend this Villa to family and friends, in the process of planning our return next year. Public transport is excellent, bus trip to the city €1:45, taxi €10:50 single trip. SuperMarket 10 minute walk, check timings. Santa Faz, 7 minute walk, couple of small bars/cafe and a hotel plus open air market. Alicante is not a major tourist area as yet and English speakers are few. Our son had an app that translates English to Spanish that helped a lot but you miss out on learning a few words of Spanish. Would I do anything different? Yes, I would hire my own car and bikes.
