Great villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday and the outside area of the villa was amazing. The location is also brilliant and we loved the place and would return.

Booked again for next year

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa which I have booked again for next summer (2016), tastefully furnished, the pool area has all day sunshine and the chill out area was a nice touch. We have visited Gran Alacant many times now and have seen it grow over the years into a busier resort but it still has a great chilled out atmosphere which we love and find it very difficult to tear ourselves away at the end of our holiday. Martin (the key holder) was a gem and although we had no need to contact him during our stay he was available should we need to.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa we stayed in over Easter 2015 was a brilliant place to call home for the week we were there. It was very spacious for the two of us, clean and tidy and the kitchen was very well equipped with all the things we needed to do the odd bit of cooking here and there (not that much though, considering the pleasant 10-15 minute walk down to the local restaurants). I was a little worried about not hiring a car for the week but we didn't find that an issue with everything being within walking distance. The supermarkets are a little further away but still only a 20-30 minute walk along wide, well maintained walkways. The outside space was the nicest I have had when renting a villa (we usually rent villas on the Florida gulf coast and they don't come anywhere close to the space we had here!). The pool is really lovely, albeit a little cold at the start of the season, but was still refreshing enough to dip your feet to cool off. There was also plenty of plastic glasses to use by the pool, so no worries there. We had to contact the villa managers about the pool and they were quick to pop round and sort things out. Both managers are friendly and knowledgeable and it was lovely to be met by one of them to show us around the villa on our first day. Overall I cannot recommend this villa highly enough, it is clean, spacious and comfortable. It's in a lovely location with stunning views of the mountains and Alicante from most windows, my favourite bit of the whole villa was walking out the front door and being met with that view! I'm already planning my next trip back!

Lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

This is in our top 5 villas. Very clean, bright and airy. The elevated position means there is a gentle cooling breeze. The BBQ and outside eating area is shaded whilst the pool is in full sun all day. Facilities were great. Decent bars and restaurants within walking distance. Public transport close by. Local management friendly and helpful. Recommended for a quiet, lazy holiday.

Our second visit, won't be our last!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in two years and was just as good as the first. The villa is in a quiet location but very easy to get to bars, restaurants and the supermarket by public transport. The beach is within walking distance but with such lovely weather and a warm pool to use we only went a couple of times. Our stay was very comfortable and the local property manager was very welcoming again. We will return and have recommended to family and friends.

Gran Alacant, where all our holiday rental villas and apartments are situated, is a residential area and therefore perfect for families – just a few miles south of the vibrant and beautiful city of Alicante and just to the north of the traditional Spanish seaside town of Santa Pola. Nestling in the hills above Alicante Bay, there are stunning views across to the city and the castle of Santa Barbara and northwards to the Crevillente mountains.

The few miles distance to the airport make Gran Alacant a particularly good place to stay as you can be in your holiday rental accomodation in less than an hour from landing and, because Gran Alacant is not on the flight path, there is no aircraft noise.

Gran Alacant is a mixture of villas, townhouses and apartments on a number of different Urbanisations, all with access to either private or communal swimming pools. The area is cosmopolitan with an interesting mixture of nationalities – mainly Spanish, British and Scandinavian – yet has a typical Spanish feel. This mixture is reflected in the bars and restaurants in the area. Spanish run tapas bars, fish restaurants and pizzerias mix happily with British owned bars and restaurants.

Gran Alacant has plenty to offer those looking for a relaxing holiday and also those looking for something a bit more active. With easy access to Alicante city and the excellent motorway network, there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas. Less than 40 minutes by car is the exciting Terra Mitica theme park just outside Benidorm. Also for children at Benidorm is the superb water park Aqualandia which is next to Mundomar sea life centre

Gran Alacant has six good quality supermarkets and many within walking distance of our holiday rental properties. As you would expect, Gran Alacant also has pharmacies, banks (all with cash machines), panaderias (bakers), heladerias (ice cream parlours), a video/DVD rental shop, internet cafes, hairdressers, nail bar, petrol station and car/scooter rental agencies.

Night life in Gran Alacant is low key with the emphasis on good food and good wine with more than 80 bars and restaurants to choose from. From simple snacks to the various menu del dias as well as superb Indian, Italian, Japanese and Chinese food – every taste is well and truly catered for, and at good prices as well! Please see our restaurant page for full listings. Nearby Santa Pola has a good selection of restaurants from simple tapas bars to the highly recommended Batiste by the quayside. Nearby, Alicante has numerous bars, restaurants and night clubs catering for its cosmopolitan clientele. For more information on the bars and restaurants in Gran Alacant, please look at our Gran Alacant Restaurant page.

Close to Gran Alacant and just five minutes by car, is the typically Spanish resort of Los Arenales del Sol. Facing onto miles of sand duned beaches, cleaned each day, Los Arenales is a popular weekend destination for people from Alicante and families from all over Spain have holiday homes here. In the resort are plenty of bars and restaurants, some with superb views of the sea and Alicante on the other side of the bay. During the spring and summer water sports of all types are available from the beach. For beach lovers, a lazy day at Los Arenales is highly recommended.

For walkers there are a number of clearly marked trails in the El Clot Nature Park in Gran Alacant. Birdwatchers will also enjoy following the trails as there are many species to be seen at all times of the year. A little further afield there is excellent walking near the Santa Pola lighthouse whose light can be seen most evenings from Gran Alacant.

Carabassi Beach, which is one of the best beaches on the Costa Blanca is on your doorstep and all the facilities you need are close at hand.

Gran Alacant is a superb choice for basing your stay on Spain’s glorious Costa Blanca. Alicante Holiday Villas has an excellent choice of competitively priced, privately owned holiday apartments, holiday villas and townhouses for rental, all with swimming pools and within walking distance of a range of bars and restaurants. The immediate area has plenty offer the holidaymaker and is 20 minutes from all the attractions of the stylish city of Alicante.
