About Martin Rosbotham
As a kid we holidayed in Spain every year and eventually we got used to the spanish way of life. I love the pool and most days it is like having your own pool in your garden. We eat out every night as the restaurants are very good and reasonbly priced. Over the years we have many fun packed holidays in Albir watching our kids grow up and meeting many good friends.
Martin Rosbotham purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Martin Rosbotham chose L'Alfàs del Pi
We bought the apartment due to all the family loving the sea and sun and thought we would benefit over the years having somewhere of our own. albir has good warm temperature all year round and is central to all major towns and villages for exploring.

Great Apartment, Great Location
This apartment really was a home from home. It had everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay - comfortable beds, powerful shower, great TV service, fully equipped kitchen etc. The location was great too. Very central, yet still quiet. If you want to go into Benidorm or Altea the bus stops were literally just outside the complex. The property was spotless and very secure. Communication with the owner was excellent. I would definitely recommend to others. Hoping to go back again !
Carole Glad you had a great stay
Great location, clean and welcoming
The apartment was easy to find, and in such a great location for buses to Benidorm and the tram ride to Calpe. Clean and well stocked, it had everything we needed for a comfortable and fun week. Thank you Martin.
Glad you enjoyed it.
Very good apartment central to see everything
Great place as a base to visit the surrounding areas. Apartment was clean and well equipped so that if you wanted to eat in there are plenty of supermarkets with fresh produce to do that but also loads of restaurants to choose from. Home from home.
glad you enjoyed your stay
Apartment extremely clean and tidy with cool, modern interior and great facilities. Ideally placed for all local amenities, restaurants, etc. Pleasant and friendly local residents. Lovely pool area. Short, pleasant walk to main town and beach/promenade. Convenient transport links. Highly recommended.
Hope to see you back soon
This was our second stay in Martin's apartment and this time we stayed for two weeks. We like the location of the property near to the Mercadona and other supermarkets for essentials and lots of restaurants. Takes about 10/15 minutes to walk to the beach front and lots of other restaurants. Albir is really easy to get around and on the bus route to Benidorm and Altea and also the train to go to Calpe. We've already booked for 2019 for a month.

The beach is approx a 10 min walk from the apartment. It is a level walk in the main with no steep hills. The beach is perfect for those lazy days or for more energetic amongst us. Bars and Restaurants line the beach front so you don't have to go far for drinks and lunch.
In the evening during the summer months the beach hosts many events such as the famous film festival and musical events. Craft fairs are very often found selling some original Spanish craft.
Nearest airport is Alicante approx 40km. Car is not essential as shops, bars, restaurants are all in walking distance. Altea and Benidorm have good public transport links and are clean and reliable. You can get public transport also now from the Airport dependant on your budget. Please ask for details.
A new train terminal has just been completed which is about a 10 min walk from the apartment which gives you good cheap access to all the Alicante/Denia coastal route.
The picturesque town of Altea is a 10 min bus ride or a stroll down the beach promenade will take a little longer but worth the walk. Benidorm is approx 20 min by bus or 10 min by taxi.
The apartment is well situated for all services and minutes walk from excellent restaurants, cafes, banks and supermarkets.
terra mitica (theme park), aqualandia (water park), mundomar (marine animal attraction), terra natura (safari park), excaliber castle (medieval theme venue) to name but a few attractions within easy reach.
other more relaxing excursions such as algar falls, the rock of ifach and the caves of canelobre for the more may be more suitable to some.
jet ski and water sports are available on the playa del albir.
The traditional town of altea is a walk down the esplanade from albir passing the old harbour. The evening in altea is particular attractive with all the old cobbled narrow streets where the houses are nearly touching each other. The alleyways come alive with shops and restaurants where you can while away the evening. All the street seem to lead to the historic church with the famous blue tile domed roof within a square full of cosmopolitan restaurants and cafes.
Guadalest is a famous hilltop fortified village up in the hills and well worth a ride out.
Valencia is particulary attractive city with its traditional spanish architecture and easily reached for a days visit.
