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!

The information pack the owner sends you is very good and it covers all aspects. Thr apartment has great amenities for our 2 young boy's aged 5 & 7. Bars and restaurants close by and a 10 minute stroll to the beach. The apartment was clean and everything you need is available for a comfortable stay. Highly recommend and will be looking to book again next year.

We had a great time between the pool and the beach and popped into Alicante a couple of times. The beach is a walkable distance (20 mins), but we tended to drive as it was so hot, so in summer a car is worth hiring.
