Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Shaun, Phil and Ellie,

Just to say that we had a wonderful holiday, one to remember!

We will be back, no doubt about that!

Back to work today, and when I pulled the curtains back the sky was grey and it's pouring with rain! Oh where is the beautiful blue sky and warm sunny weather.

Lovely to meet you all.

Kind regards

Kim & Michael

Lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I agree with previous comments. Stunning location, the view to die for (the mountains and the sea). Helpful, friendly owners. Our 8 yo loved the swimming pool, so did we. It is long enough to have a swim in it. The outside area has plenty to offer. You can relax with a glass of wine in the evening watching the lights of Altea and Albir. You can barbecue or sunbath in the afternoon. The property also offers you loads of privacy. The apartment is nice inside, with selection of board games, dvds, wifi, tv, binoculars and even sun chairs and a parasol to take to the beach. Kitchen well equipped. Local area beautiful, 10 min drive to Altea which is a lovely little town. Art galleries, summer concerts of classical and jazz music, a huge range of restaurants. We recommend Hotel San Miguel with Spanish cuisine, Llao llao with delicious youghurt desserts both by the beach. Going up the hill is a must, there is a lovely church there and a great view. You can also treat yourself to delicious cakes and ice cream at Pasteleria De Sabors which is located at the top of the hill. There are plenty of places to visit within 15- 60 min drive including waterfalls of Algar, Benidorm or Alfaz del Pi (A national movies festival takes place every year in Alfaz and there is the avenue of the stars on the promenade including a star of Pedro Almodovar).

Finally, I have to mention lovely local products like wines available to buy in local stores from the barrels. Honestly our little family of three loved every minute spent at Casa Julio. Hopefully we will come back!

What a gem !,

  • 5 of 5

This apartment exceeded all our expectations. It was more than well equipped for a holiday home. Views over local countryside, Altea town and the sea were amazing .It was in a quiet and peaceful location just perfect for a relaxing holiday. Local shops only a few minutes away with excellent butcher.

Access to main roads quick and easy. local roads had NO potholes,,

Only 40 mins from Alicante Airport and under €4 for the motorway toll.

The interior of the apartment was immaculate and is very tastefully furnished with lots of information re activities in the area and suggested restaurants.

Shaun is the perfect host very helpful and friendly but never intrusive. He goes out of his way to ensure you have a great holiday and nothing is too much trouble.

This is without doubt the best accommodation for 2 people in the area and we have been to Altea many times but only just discovered this gem.

We will definitely be coming again and again...

Thanks Shaun from Ian and Viv

Most beautiful appartment

  • 5 of 5

The location was (seriously) amazing and the best we've ever booked. It's even more beautiful than on the pictures. Everything is made with love for details in the flat and the outside area. The pool area is awesome, including seaside, when you need a relaxed quiet day without many people. Beautiful beaches and hiking trakes are all around. We felt so welcomed by the owners. They cared for everything we needed and yet left us our own privacy. We would always love to come back und will... :) There is really nothing to complain about.

Superb!! spectacular position with views of Med.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the whole of March 2015, and can honestly say there was nothing to fault. The apartment is so well equipped, and if there was something you needed, Shaun the owner would sort it for you. The outside areas are incredible,

We feel like we have made friends for life with Shaun and Phil and the lovely Ellie!!

Very sad to leave, and can't wait to go back.

Perfekter Urlaub bei perfekten Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

Zuerst einmal möchten wir uns ausdrücklich für die wunderbare Gastfreundschaft in diesem Apartment bei Shaun und Phil bedanken. Wirklich perfekte Gastgeber.

Das Apartment hat so ziemlich die beste Lage, die man in Altea finden kann. Einen wunderbaren Blick auf Altea und das Meer, dazu Sonne von morgens bis abends.

Die Außenanlagen, der Pool, die überdachten Freisitze haben dazu beigetragen, dass wir einen unvergessenen Urlaub genießen durften.

Das Apartment betritt man durch eine kleine Kitchenette, die mit einem Kühlschrank und einem Gaskochfeld ausgestattet ist. Es gibt alles, was man zum Kochen im Urlaub braucht. Eine Mikrowelle mit Grillfunktion komplettiert die Ausstattung.

Dann geht man in ein Wohnzimmer mit schönen Sofas, einem Teppich und kleinen Tischen. Es gibt einen Fernseher mit deutschen, französischen und englischen Programmen.

Das Schlafzimmer enthält einen schönen Schrank und ein französisches Bett. Wir wünschten uns getrennte Oberbetten - kein Problem! Shaun hat das besorgt. Morgens schaut man durch das Fenster und kann schon gleich diesen umwerfenden Blick genießen. Einfach traumhaft.

Das Badezimmer betritt man vom Schlafzimmer. Hier ist eine bodentiefe Dusche und ein modernes Waschbecken. Völlig ausreichend.

Alles in allem können wir Casa Julio sehr empfehlen. Man ist in wenigen Minuten in Altea und hat auch nicht den üblichen Stau auf der Durchfahrtsstraße. Dieser Blick, diese Ruhe und das schöne Ambiente werden uns noch lange an diesen Urlaub denken lassen.

Wir fühlten uns von Anfang an sehr aufgehoben.

Besonders hervorheben möchte ich, dass Shaun jeden Tag zum Blumengießen kurz vorbei gekommen ist. Das hat uns ein gutes Gefühl der Sicherheit gegeben. Ein kurzes Schwätzchen, einige Tipps für Ausflüge - wenn wir danach gefragt haben.

Dann gibt es noch Ellie, die Hündin! So ein liebes Tier ist sehr selten. Jeden Abend bellen die Hunde in Spanien. Das gehört einfach dazu. Aber Ellie hat nicht einmal gebellt oder nur "wuff" gemacht. Man hat sie nie gehört, nur manchmal hinter der Gartentür gesehen.

Noch ein Tipp: Direkt unterhalb der Ferienwohnung gibt es ein wunderbares Restaurant "El Tossal". Leider nur am Freitag, Samstag und Sonntag geöffnet. Unbedingt dort hingehen, denn das Essen ist wirklich gut und es hat eine nette Atmosphäre.
