The Three Kings – Los Reyes Magos on the 6th of January is when the Spanish children receive their presents. The highlight is without a doubt The Kings Parade that takes place in EVERY SPANISH TOWN on the 5th with big decorated floats. The children will love it, a truly amazing atmosphere, not to be missed and takes place in both Santa Pola and Alicante on the Eve of the 5th of January.

RECCOMMENDATIONS: We recommend all clients booking with us to take out a comprehensive Travel Insurance to cover cancellation charges and for medical cover. However the local pharmacy is very good and able to help with lots of things. There is also a doctors surgery close by should you need it. Don't forget your E111/European Health Insurance cards.

My husband and I both grew up in Oxford and still live in Oxfordshire. Whilst on our honeymoon in 1987 we went to visit my Aunt and Uncle who had a holiday home in Spain. We were so impressed by their wonderful life style that we began to dream of buying our own place in the sun. Now that dream has become a reality and we also have that wonderful life style, escaping from the cold to Alicante as often as we can.

GORDON AND LINDA DAVIES purchased this house in 2006


We had bought a small bungalow in Gran Alacant a few years previously and really fell in love with the area more each time we stayed. We especially liked the fact that it is so close to the airport and the beach. During the evenings we have all the restaurants and bars close to hand so we don't have to use the car. We often use the local transport too (very cheap) So when a larger property came up for sale a few roads nearer to the beach we went to take a look. The lovely Spanish couple showed us around and we certainly experienced the wow factor, especially when we saw the wonderful views of the sea. Within weeks the house was ours!

What makes this house unique

As our house faces the sea the views are stunning with the beach appearing endless. The high ceilings create such a spacious open feel throughout and the white marble staircase is so Spanish. Straight away we could picture ourselves breakfasting on the patio but as the day goes on the shade is a welcome relieve after a hot day on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had lovely few days, weather wasnt on our side but we made the most of it and Caitlin enjoyed making sandcastles, collecting shells, the road train, Rio Safari and of course the icecream! Thank you

Beautiful, clean and well-located holiday home

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four truly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Sky House. There was a good amount of information about the house and also the surroundings and what to do and where to go on a holiday.

The only little minus was the pool, which was unusable in May and so was the public pool about a mile away. Our small boys were looking forward to swimming in the pool in addition to the sea.

Otherwise we had a wonderful holiday and the house was great! Thank you Linda so much! :)

Owner's Response: There are so many lovely things to do in the area. Like many of the local community pools they are only open from about mid June til mid September......they would probably be too cold outside of these times anyway . The local Spa has a small heated swimming pool and also a very large jacuzzi type pool which is open all year round for adults. Of course the sea is always there!

Lovely apartment. Very clean and comfortable. Everything you need and wanted available inside too.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely 10 days. Very pretty place. Beach was lovely. Good bus route on local bus in Grand Alacant. Tourist train also which drops off at beach and different locations. Plenty of places to eat. Not far from airport which was great. Would come back again. Not really a place for teenagers. More for younger children or couples.

Lovely house with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The house was easy to get to, from the airport and the air con was much appreciated on arrival! The beach was about a 10-15 walk downhill and although the return journey was quite a climb - it was worth it! We didn't do an awful lot of exploring the area as our three boys (11,9 and 6) were more than happy going to the beach most days and on the odd occasion we didn't fancy the walk, we headed to the pool - literally a minute away. The house itself was very homely, with everything you might need and we loved sitting out on the terrace in the evenings, playing games and enjoying the sun. All in all, it was a great value holiday and we have already booked again for next year!

Tre uker hos Linda og Gordon Davies

  • 4 of 5

En plass som trygt kan anbefales og supre folk som leier ut og en super dame som nøkkelholder som ordner alt på flekken . Fin plass som er rein og fin med gode senger og alt du trenger . Rett rundt hjørnet , 270m.til bussholdeplass med buss til Santa Pola og Alicante . Her stopper også turisttoget som går faste rute rundt på Gran Alacant , nå har det også begynt å gå en liten lokal liten buss rundt på Gran Alacant . Turisttoget kan man ta til eksempel ned på senteret å kose seg der på en eller fler av de fine spisestedene og ta toget opp igjen på samme billett . Ca en kilometer ned til en av spanias fineste strender , hjem kan du du ta toget eller buss .

Location location location is everything with the airport just a 10 minute drive away and the beach just a 10 minute walk. The immediate area has lots of great places to eat with the very ornate Chinese restaurants particularly good value for money. During the winter months it is much quieter and not all of the bars/cafes will be open. There is a weekly market about a mile away where you can buy food as well as souvenirs. During the summer months the local tapas bars will give you a real taste of the Spanish way of life while the local shops can cater for all your needs. The holiday makers enjoy gathering in the local square during the evenings where there is always a friendly atmosphere and also an internet cafe. The endless beach is a 10 minute walk away and adjacent to the beach is a nature reserve edged with pine trees. It is an ideal location for runners, cyclist and swimmers alike it's wonderful to run or cycle along the coast road. Santa Pola is well worth a visit and it's here you will see the local fishermen with their catches of the day. It is in Santa Pola that you can Snorkel and Scuba Dive all year round. Also not to be missed is 3 Kings Day Fiesta celebrated on the 6th of January in both Santa Pola and Alicante. This is a real treat for the children on the evening of the 5th of January when the streets are filled with both adults and children on the build up to the 6th of January. There are good links to the surrounding areas including Santa Pola and Alicante city. Alicante airport itself is a 10 minute drive away. Alicante Castle is a must.

Other Activities: Local outside 'gym' equipment in park and also children's swings and slides.. Also local Health Club (walkable) 15 euros for all day (Dec. 2015) has indoor swimming pool, gym, jacuzzis, several pools with massage water features, sauna, steam room, excercise classes. pay extra.
