Make a holiday apartment in Playa de la Albufereta your home away from home

If you want the shopping, culture and entertainment of a city break coupled with the relaxation and fun of a beach holiday, take a look at the range of apartments in Playa de Albuferate on HomeAway. Most rentals are right next to the Mediterranean, boasting lovely views and with modern interiors encompassing all of the convenience and comfort you’d find in your own home. Gardens, air-conditioning and private pool access are just some of the facilities offered by holiday rentals in Playa de la Albufereta. The location of Playa de la Albufereta holiday homes, northwest of Alicante, is especially handy if you’re a non-driver, as there plenty of transport links.

Things to do

-Beaches. The closest beach is Albufereta, which is over 400 metres long and complemented by good services and facilities in the summer months. Just to west is Postiguet, which is Alicante’s main city beach, with white sand and the kind of colour and bustle you’d expect. For a little more seclusion there’s Playa de San Juan, which is seven kilometres in length and held as one of the best in Spain.

-History. Starting at Explanada de España by the seafront, the old-town is a maze of narrow streets, dotted with historic religious and civic buildings – it’s a picturesque spot for a wander. Just next to the old-town is the Castle of Santa Barbara, which goes back to the 800s. It’s hard to miss because it sits 160 metres above the city on Mount Benacantil.

-Golf. Alicante shines, even in a region recognised for its top courses. Club de Golf Alicante is an 18-hole course just a few minutes from Playa de la Albufereta – it was designed by Seve Ballesteros and has first-class facilities. A cheaper choice is the “pay and play” at El Platnío with a well maintained par 72 backed by mountains.

-Cuisine. Some of Alicante’s best cafes and bars can be found on the esplanade, and the new leisure district by the breakwater is a trendy place for an evening meal with a memorable view of the city. One of the most important regional products is rice, which forms the basis of the famous paella, and local arroz a la alicantinarice, which has chicken and shellfish.

-Days out. Away from the beach, you’ll never be stuck for things to do if you’re visiting Alicante with children. That’s because Benidorm is a comfortable car trip away, and has exciting and fun-packed family attractions. Terra Mitica and Terra Natura sit next door to each other – the former is a theme park with rides and shows to suit all visitors, while Terra Natura is an imaginatively laid-out waterpark.

Weather in Playa de la Albufereta

If you visit a Playa de la Albufereta holiday apartment in July or August then you’re likely to have lots of warm and sunny weather in store. These months are the hottest of the year, bringing temperatures that climb above 30 degrees during the day. May, June, September and October are also warm - the end of the summer is prone to heavy downpours, but these are brief and isolated. Winters are very moderate here, and it’s not unusual for temperatures to get close to 20 degrees, even in February or March.

Travel to Playa de la Albufereta

Holiday homes in Playa de Albufereta are easy to get to from the UK, as the local airport, Alicante (ALC) is one of the best connected in Spain. There are routes to this destination from almost every international airport in the UK, mostly with budget carriers. Once you get there you’ll be able to catch the Subús Alcoyana, Line C-6 to central Alicante, and the tram from there to Albufereta. By road it’s also simple – you just need to use the A-70 from the airport, which will take you almost all the way to your destination, turning off for the N-382.

The weather let us down for part of the trip (meaning rain and around 18 degrees for 3 days - the rest of the week around 24 and either sunny or partially cloudy) but on the whole we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The house is clean, well looked after and very well equipped with pretty much everything you could need. The friendly welcome pack can see you through the first few days and Emilio was always helpful and on hand. I would definitely recommend Emilio's place to anybody.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We had a fantastic time in Alicante, a beautiful city, with a wonderful climate. The people were very friendly and the food was superb. The apartment is an easy 10 minutes walk along the Playa del Postiguet beach front from where the airport bus drops you. (You use the same bus stop to complete the return trip to the airport.) The lift accessed third floor apartment was clean and well presented. We were met at the door by Jonathon, an Englishman living in Alicante, who showed us the flat and gave us good local guidance. The adequately simply furnished lounge has a TV, Wifi, a table and chairs and two small settees. A small balcony overlooks part of the beautiful hill on which the Santa Bárbara Castle sits. With two smallish bedrooms, a double and a single, there is sleeping for 3, or room for 2 to spread out. The bed was comfortable. The view of the hill out the bedroom window with the wild birds and the sound of the cicadas was delightful. The kitchen has all the necessary fittings, pans, etc. to cook a meal. There is a washing machine, fridge and running hot water from a boiler. The bathroom was small, and the shower was even smaller. Good luck retrieving the soap if you drop it! The air-con and 2 electric fans were a blessing when the minimum overnight temperatures were 25C. The location of the apartment is perfect if you want a beach holiday. It is a 5 minute walk to the main beach, Playa del Postiguet, a lovely, clean sandy beach with water temperatures a balmy 26C in August. The Old Town is just a ten minute stroll away, with all the bars, restaurants and entertainment for a great night out in a beautiful, car free, environment. There is a small supermarket just across the road from the apartment, and a few bars and restaurants close by. The street is mostly quiet during the night with little traffic. We enjoyed the authenticity of Alicante and would happily return to the city and to this apartment. Many thanks. Ian & Rachel
