About Ian Rogers
Hi - my name is Ian Rogers. I own three holiday homes which are let out when my family is not using them. I have been letting holiday homes out for 15 years and understand the high standards that guests expect. Some of our guests have returned to our properties 7 times, so we manage to deliver on your expectations. You will have excellent local support from our experienced and friendly property managers.
Why Ian Rogers chose Altea
The swimming pool is arguably the best of all the swimming pools in the Altea Hills resort, and is situated about 50m from your front door, allowing you to move between the pool/gardens and your home easily. The covered "naya" is a lovely spot to shelter from the sun and eat al fresco in the evening as the lights appear over the Altea Bay and town below, perched on the hill overlooking the Bay.

Altea Hills, the luxury resort overlooking the Bay of Altea. The setting of Altea Hills is breathtaking. Perched on the side of the spectacular Sierra Bernia mountain range as it meets the sea, the resort has stunning views of Altea village, the Sierra Helada mountain range and the the clear blue waters below. The beach is a 10 minute drive from the villa.
Alicante is the nearest international airport and is a 40 minute drive to the villa. Car hire is recommended.
There is an excellent supermarket (the in store bakery should not be missed) at the main entrance to Altea Hills, but it is too far to walk, hence the need for a car or use of taxis. There are many other large supermarkets in Calpe and Altea, plus a Carrefour near the huge shopping centre of La Marina, just off the motorway junction for Benidorm. For fish, look out for the stalls set up near the fishing boats in the main resorts, where you can choose your own catch fresh from the sea.
The tennis club on site offers coaching in tennis and Valencian style tennis. The luxury resort hotel features cascading pools and also contains a spa, jacuzzi, sauna, squash and social club (charges may apply - the hotel was taken over by another company in 2010 and the new owners are just as eager for owners and guests staying in Altea Hills to use the facilities - they obviously hope you will buy drinks and food etc but there is no obligation to do so. There is also a beauty therapy centre, hair salon, social club and restaurant. A bar offers occasional live music. Altea Hills resort is connected by a winding road down to the Campomanes Greenwich Marina, which aims to be the best sports marina in the Mediterranean and is home to the yachts of the rich and famous. One of the finest paella restaurants overlooks the marina, or enjoy a drink at one of the many bars and cafes in this stylish resort, with adjoining small sheltered beaches.
The best restaurants are to be found within a 5-10 minute drive in Altea and Campomanes. In Altea, they are found both on the beach front and as you climb up through the the winding cobbled streets of the old town to the old church square. Or go for a drive to the paddy fields of the Albufera, an area of peculiar beauty, to the village of El Palmar. Little more than a street full of open air paella restaurants. Travel to Valencia is straightforward on the motorway, taking about an hour and a quarter. Valencia is now being appreciated as having as much to offer as Madrid and Barcelona for weekend breaks, and Villa Deneilian in Altea is a relaxing and convenient base from which to explore this fascinating and exciting city. There is also a useful and scenic railway line which runs from Alicante to Denia, with three stops in Altea.
