About Gill

Gill and Richard are from Cardiff, Wales. Although both retired, they remain actively involved in the arts as freelance musicians. They have three adult children.

They are happy to answer queries on both the area and property and are keen to share their joy and love of Altea and Altea Sol with you.

Gill purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Gill chose Altea Area

We fell for the charms of Altea after visiting with friends who had also invested in the area.

Immediate thoughts that come to mind when in Wales in the cold and damp is Altea's micro climate and long sunny days, the turquoise sea, the changing colours of Calpe rock which we see from our balcony, and following a day of sun, wonderful food and wine, the sounds of the sea at bedtime. Transport links are excellent and all the neighbouring towns along the coast are within easy distance. Alicante is one of the most well used destinations and very accessible for us with direct flights from Cardiff and Bristol and not forgetting the train stop from Alicante which is a short walk from the apartment.

Altea has everything, and really does live up to its name of 'the pearl of the costas'.

What makes this apartment unique

The real joy of this property is its spacious grounds and closeness to the sea. As a 1970 s build we love its charm and the wonderful facilities such the beautifully kept gardens and pools. The beach is unpopulated and peaceful. A typical day for us would be breakfast on the balcony watching the residents taking their early morning swim or the speedboats skimming the waters, a walk to nearby L'Olla or the promenade for some lunchtime tapas and crisp white wine, an afternoon swim in the pool followed by a siesta in readiness for an evening walk up to the old town for some wonderful food and wine. Even though only a short distance away from the town centre's hustle and bustle, Cap Negret has its own restaurants, supermarkets and bars which are only a short walk away from the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We loved every minute of our time in Altea and the apartment is light and spacious. A great pool, beach on the doorstep and wonderful choice of restaurants and shops.' Kevin Mckenzie, Cardiff, Wales.

'We've been to Altea for the past five years. It is the total escape for us with our busy lives. We've already booked for the autumn and can't wait!' Liz and Gethin Morgan, Brecon, Powys, Wales.

'This year I will be returning to the apartment in Altea for the third year running. It has great transport connections i.e.busy nightlife of Benidorm/ beautiful Calpe with great fish restaurants. The apartment is direct on to the beach which is never busy! Altea itself has great little restaurants and for an evening out, the old town. I 100% recommend!'

Phil , Greenwich, London

'We had a fantastic holiday. The apartment was very well equipped, clean and tidy. Weather/location fabulous.' Kate Morgan, West Midlands

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We (wife and I) travel to Spain at least four times every year and typically go a little further north to Jalon. This year has been different and it's fair to say a 'holiday changer'. We've been to Altea lots of times like many holiday makers to visit the market on a Tuesday however we never appreciated just what Altea has to offer. The apartment is exactly as the owners describe it (in fact better) and the location is sufficiently out of the hustle and bustle whilst still being close enough to benefit from everything that is available.

I'm writing this sat on the balcony of our last day - I can hear the waves lapping, can see the lights up the mountain and have just agreed with my wife that we will be back again (more than once!)

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that our property's information is accurate so as not to mislead our guests. It is our home in the sun and it gives us great pleasure to know that our visitors have enjoyed their stay. The tram ride takes 2/3minutes into the centre of Altea, or alternatively a brisk 10 minute walk.

Great chill out

  • 5 of 5

The apartment block was in a great location and we had uninterrupted views of both sea, beach and the hills of Altea. The property was clean and we had no problems.

Transport via bus and trams (stations in Altea Centre and nearby to apartment). A pleasant walk on straight road will take you over the bridge into Altea. Mercadona supermarket is to be found over the railway bridge from centre square and turn left. There are lots of local shops.

The promenade boasts lots of bars of various types to enjoy.

We discovered lots of eateries and bars at differing price range. The owner's description and notes of the area was very helpful and accurate.

Thanks Gill, and to anyone going to Altea enjoy.

Excellent Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Excellent holiday in a very comfortable and well equipped apartment in a lovely location. We spent two weeks there in August and had a lovely time.

The apartment is situated at Cap Negret and is a 15 minute walk into Altea with it's many shops, restuarants and bars. Also a frequent bus service from Altea takes you into Benidorm (a forty minute ride away).

Being keen walkers and liking to explore we found many places to visit and enjoy. We also liked to relax on the (pebble) beach, which is just in front of the apartment.

The owners description and information about the apartment was very accurate and we felt very relaxed and able to chill, which is just what we needed.

Although it is walk into Altea, we are looking forward to returning this summer and exploring some more.

Many thanks to Gill and her husband.
