Why Eraine sinclair chose Altea Area

This apartment is in an ideal location for the traveller who wants to while away the days on the beach or by the pool, with fabulous restaurants a five minute walk away, but also have the opportunity for a more active time with golf, sailing, mountain walking, aqua park, theme park and many other attractions.

What makes this apartment unique

Altea is a wonderful coastal town and is busy at all times of the year. There is a weekly market which is popular with locals and tourists and you can find locally grown fruit and vegetables as well as souvenirs to take home. Food always plays an important part to Spanish people and some of the best restaurants can be found in the area. Don't miss the great restaurants and bars that line the boulevard and even more in and around the church square. The church area must be visited with its quaint cobbled streets which are full of artisan shops, boutiques, artists and street entertainers. In summer months the beaches are popular. They are stone beaches, but rich golden sand beaches can be found nearby. You really do not need a car to enjoy this lovely apartment as everything is in walking distance. If you do want to go further afield, take the bus or train, both run regularly to the nearby towns and cities for a very reasonable price. Don't forget some of the top attractions are also to be found including magnificent golf courses, theme parks and water parks as well as great shows and entertainment for all the family whatever there age.

Altea is located in the region of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. This is without doubt one of the most beautiful towns to be found on Spain's 'White Coast'. If you want all night clubs and the bright city lights on your holiday, give Altea a miss. This town is a holiday heaven for the more discerning tourist who will be captivated by its medieval cobbled streets, its picture book old quarter and the delights of its palm-fringed seafront esplanade. Altea is a restful resort where there's plenty to see and do without being bothered by the mayhem which typifies some of the busier coastal towns in high season.

Altea is an attractive town with a history going back many centuries. The towns name was derived from the Arabs who named it Althaya, meaning health to all.

The old town with its many little streets of immaculate white washed houses is a fascinating place to stroll . . . From the old town it's a short walk to the sea-front by any of the network of cobbled streets , many of which are adorned with bougainvillaea and jasmine.

The commercial part of the town,offers its market ,boutiques and the newer palm-lined esplanade packed with restaurants serving delicious international cuisines.

Altea holds a street market every Tuesday from 8am to 1.30pm and visitors flock from all over the area to purchase fresh locally grown produce and gifts

Due to Altea´s cultural status (it is home to the University of Fine Arts) there are dozens of art galleries and antique and craft shops, selling items unique to the area.

City life in Alicante (45 mins) and Valencia (1 hr 15 mins) is offset by the stunning Costa Blanca mountain scenery, home to the ancient monastery village of Guadalest. Altea is approximately a 20 minutes drive from Benidorm where you can visit many of its attractions such as Agualandia which is a must if you have children or the young at heart, Terra Mittica theme park for the thrill seekers, and Mundomar to swim with the dolphins.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have asked for a better apartment. Eraine helped us organise our transport from the airport and was there to greet us at the apartment and gave us lots of useful information on places to go and things to do, as well as providing a welcome pack. The location is wonderful with great views over the pool and out to sea from the large balcony – a great place for your morning coffee and pre-dinner drinks. The apartment itself is spacious and extremely clean and well kept, and the beds were really comfortable. The pool area was equally well maintained and a lovely place to chill out on the loungers provided from the apartment. We were just a short walk from the promenade with its many bars and restaurants and a 15 minute stroll took us up into the old town. Will definitely be back!

Best holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was 'Wow, this is amazing'. The apartment is open, airy, spacious and has stunning views. We loved the 'welcome package' from Eraine and Tom, the owners. They were also fantastic in suggesting places to go during our stay. The apartment was spotlessly clean, the pillows really comfortable and had everything we needed. Having two bedrooms and two bathrooms was perfect for the three of us. The swimming pool was a great area to chill out in for the afternoon, using the sun beds Eraine left for us. The location is perfect - very central with lots of restaurants and the promenade nearby. We loved sitting on the balcony, looking at the ocean in the evenings for our pre-dinner drinks. The property was well-maintained and exactly as described. I would highly recommend this apartment and Altea and look forward to retuning in 2019. I know we will be one of many 'returning' customers. Thank you, Shirley

Fully equipped, perfect for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful family holiday in Altea. We arrived in the evening to a well equipped, clean apartment. Eraine welcomed us and we were grateful for the food/drink package....a lovely touch. The apartment had everything we needed for a family of 4 ( including my 2 daughters aged 5 and 8). There are supermarkets and lots of restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. The old town took a little longer to walk to but it was worth it to see the pretty buildings and enjoy the lively atmosphere. The shared pool is great for swimming however does not have a shallow end for younger kids. There is a life guard on duty though.

We really enjoyed sitting on the large balcony in the evenings with a glass of wine listening to the sea.

We would recommend the apartment and enjoyed a great holiday.
