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

As soon as you start driving along palm lined roads, you will know that you are approaching the town of Elche, Spain. Elche (Elx) is a magnificent city of art and tradition on the Costa Blanca in Alicante, named as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its unique attractions, including the Elche Palm Grove or Palmerar d’Elx. There thick cover of palm trees throughout the town provides a wonderfully exotic feel, further accentuated by the glorious beaches that stretch out along the coastline.

Things to do in Elche, Spain

There are many wonderful sights to see from an Elche property. The La Calahorra Fortress is especially spectacular, found within the old walled city of Elche. 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!

Places to visit on holiday in Elche, Spain

The famous town of Torrevieja is just 50km from an Elche holiday rental property. During the summer months especially, the beaches of the Costa Blanca can become overpowering in their appeal. There are a huge range to choose from, with the closest, Santa Pola being just a 10 minute drive from an Elche property rental.

Weather in Elche, Spain

Elche is blessed with a glorious Mediterranean climate of long, hot, dry summers and wonderfully short, extremely mild winters. Daily peak temperatures can be expected to climb into the mid 30’s (˚C) on a daily basis from early May until late September, and during July and August, temperatures can often break the 40˚C mark. With around 11 hours of sunshine a day, and warm conditions lasting long into the evening, it is little wonder that Elche accommodation is in high demand for the vast majority of the year.

Travel to Elche, Spain

Alicante Airport (ALC) is just 14km from a holiday rental villa in Elche, Spain. There are an enormous range of cheap flights to Alicante from across the UK, with flights arriving with almost alarming regularity. As the airport is so close, taxi transfers are an excellent option, but if you would like a free reign to explore the whole of Alicante, and the coastline especially, a hire car is an excellent option.

Lovely apartment with fantastic views

5 of 5
The apartment was lovely and clean and is well furnished and there was plenty of room for the two of us. The communal stairs and lift were also nice and clean. We loved the private roof terrace which was well furnished with loungers, table and chairs and a BBQ. The views are fantastic and you can also watch the daily hustle and bustle of the Main Street There is a good variety of restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk and a small but well stocked supermarket. The lovely beach is about 20 mins walk. For those who want to go further afield the bus stops near the apartment. The apartment and local area is deal for a relaxing holiday

Spacious, clean apartment, close to the Old Town and beach.

4 of 5
We arrived in the middle of the hottest weather the area has ever experienced (according to our host). After a first night of tossing and turning with no sleep I emailed German and asked if he had any fans we could borrow. He sent an electrician round that afternoon (Saturday!) to install ceiling fans in all the bedrooms, which was amazing and made for much more comfortable nights! The apartment is right in the heart of Alicante and within walking distance of everything. My only disappointment was the view was not as idyllic as it appeared in the advert. The photos don't show the 3-lane main roads, massive roundabout and flyover right next to the apartment which detracts from the sea view. At least with the ceiling fans we could shut the windows and not hear the screeching brakes and beeping horns at night! However, the apartment is in the middle of the city so traffic is to be expected, and the pay-off is it is only 10 minutes walk to a large hypermarket and shopping centre, 10 minutes walk to a lovely beach with fine golden sand and warm waves, and 10 minutes walk to the beautiful Old Town, with its churches, plazas and lovely restaurants. We went to the beautiful castle (free) twice via a cool air conditioned lift opposite the beach. German was a fantastic, kind host and let us stay on until our flight in the afternoon of our last day as his next guests were not coming for another day. I would recommend the apartment.
