Make a holiday apartment in Urbanova your home away from home

For a beach destination that’s easy to get to and accompanied by golf courses and fascinating historical towns, have a look at the choice of holiday apartments in Urbanova on HomeAway. The local beach is first-rate, with a large swathe of soft sand next to calm waters that are safe even for the youngest members of the family. Most Urbanova holiday homes are within walking distance of the beach, but peaceful days can also be spent by the accommodation’s own private pool. The interiors of Urbanova apartments are roomy and bright, with kitchen appliances and entertainment facilities provided.

Things to do

-Beaches: Urbanova sits next to Playa de los Saladares, which is long and broad, with fine pale sand. It is preferred by many for its relatively low-key development, but still offers comprehensive facilities, including sunbed hire, eateries and all the classic seaside activities. Just down the way is Playa del Altet, also with low-scale development and fringed by sand dunes.

-Golf: A couple of kilometres from Urbanova is Plantio Golf, an 18-hole, par-72 Championship course. In a part of Spain where water can be scarce this course earns merit for using innovative conservation techniques. A little further on but still within a 20-minute drive are Alenda and the highly rated Font del Llop, listed as one of Spain’s top 100 courses.

 

-Heritage: Alicante is well worth the short trip north for its magnificent Castle of Santa Bárbara, which dominates the city from the top of Mount Benacantil. It’s a Muslim construction, dating to the 800s and is one of the largest fortresses in the country. From its walls 166 metres above Alicante there are great views of the city and its harbour. Also worth checking out are the Archaeological Museum, with a collection of more than 80,000 pieces, and the Asegurada Modern Art Museum, which has works by Georges Braque, Juan Gris and Pablo Picasso. 

-Elche: 20 minutes inland is this city, which has an interesting blend of Moorish and baroque heritage. There’s also a UNESCO site here—the Palmeral of Elche. This is a vast plantation of palm trees covering 3.5 square kilometres. The orchard dates back 2,500 years, to the time of the Carthaginians. Other sights include the Altamira castle, originally an Alhomad construction, but renovated after the Reconquista; it now houses the city’s history and archaeology museum. 

-Cuisine: The Valencian Community is Spain’s most important rice producer, and this is borne out by the local cuisine. A whole array of simmered and baked rice dishes are on the menu around Alicante, from perennial favourites like seafood paella to lesser known but no less delicious options like arroz al horno (sausage and tomato), arroz negro (cuttlefish) and arroz a banda (cooked in fish stock and served with aioli).

Weather in Urbanova

The climate for the region around Urbanova holiday accommodation is officially classified as hot-summer Mediterranean. As the name implies, the summer season is very warm as well as being long and dry. It starts as early as April some years and from then on things only get hotter—daily highs climb from 23°C at the start of the season to 31°C in August. Even in October there’s weather warm enough for beach trips in Urbanova. Winters are pleasant here, with highs of 17°C in January.

Travel to Urbanova

Holiday homes in Urbanova are close to Alicante Airport (ALC), which is little more than six kilometres to the west. As Spain’s sixth-largest airport, and the main one for the Costa Blanca, Alicante receives plenty of flights from the UK, the majority of which are with low-fares carriers and charters. The N-332 connects Urbanova with the airport, for a drive of less than ten minutes in low traffic. It’s possible to use Alicante railway station to reach this destination from other cities like Valencia, Barcelona and Madrid.

                                                            This is the perfect holiday rental! Fabulous location, beautiful property.

                                                            We spent a glorious week in Villa Circular in June with 2 teenage children.This property is located right on a beautiful quiet stretch of beach with powder-sand, located across the bay from Alicante City. There is a small supermarket & a number of restaurants right beside the property, which means you never have to leave! If you do wish to go to Alicante City 7km away, there is a regular bus service. The villa itself is stunning.The pool and patio area have a magnificent view of the sea, as do the living room and main bedroom. It is fitted out and maintained to an exceptionally high standard, and immaculately clean. Manolo and his family have looked after every detail, providing beach chairs, parasols, body boards and beach mats, as well as the 2 bicycles & canoe mentioned. We will definitely go back!

                                                            Great property

                                                            We had a great holiday! Apartment was great, well equipped and in a great position. We had a hire car so it made things really easy to get about! Claire was lovely, met us on arrival and explained everything we needed to know. Apartment is in a great spot. We had fantastic weather with a bit of a heatwave! Pool was great, very quiet, had it to ourselves on some days. Handy for the beach and the airport. Good supermarket and a great Chinese restaurant nearby in Gran Alicant only a ten minute drive away. Loads of parking right outside the apartment. Would thoroughly recommend for a nice holiday in a quiet spot with great views from the front balcony and the roof terrace. A 10 minute drive in to Alicante at night, great for a wander round and some nice restaurants. Great property, great holiday!

                                                            Perfect

                                                            My brother and I booked this apartment for a relaxing getaway. The location was quiet with a nature walk opposite, it doesn't look like much at first but it is a beautiful set out nature reserve (with lots of geocaches if you like that sort of thing, we do!) The beach and little town are 10 mins away with buses to Alicante and Santa Pola ( it's around €2 each to Alicante). The apartment was was brilliant, clean and modern. There is a smart tv that you can access Netflix with, with your own account or as a possible 'pay as you go' ( I think, anyway, but it was in Spanish!). The owners were great, they went out of their way to make us comfortable, even taking us to Burger King when we arrived late and starving! Overall, we had a great holiday and would highly recommend it. I would definitely stay again, maybe next time with my own family.
