About the property

Apartment in Altea, Costa Blanca North, Spain - 2 minutes walk from the Plaza, 10 minutes to the beachfront

The Costa Blanca region of Spain offers year round sunshine, the white sandy beaches are peppered with unspoilt fishing villages and historic towns. Altea is the jewel of this spectacular region and our apartment is in the heart of the town. Altea is surrounded by olive groves, pine forests and the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean. The apartment is within easy walking distance of the magnificent Church of the Virgen del Consuelo, which can be seen from the terrace. In front of the church is a beautiful plaza lined with restaurants, cafés and bars, from this point there are numerous meandering streets leading to the beach/promenade area. Some of Altea's best Spanish and International restaurants are here. Altea has many fiestas throughout the year, with the largest and most famous being the Moors and Christians fiesta in September, there are three days of celebration, this is one festival not to be missed.

About Mark Pettit

Casa Leah is a family owned apartment in Altea. Our family is based throughout Europe and the Southern Hemisphere, it is regularly used by all members whether for a quick weekend break by individuals or a more exciting larger family reunion! It has been a fantastic family holidaying spot since it's purchase and is enjoyed from grandparents through to grandchildren. There is always something new happening in the town or the local area for a some adventure! Family and friends use this property whether with their own children, friends or even on their own for some solitude. This property will remain within our family for years to come as it has happy memories and will inevitably make many more.

Mark Pettit purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Mark Pettit chose Altea Area

This property was bought in Altea as it was a new, modern build but had considerations for its location to the historical walled Old Town-1 minute walk away. The more modern beach promenade is less than a 10 minute stroll downhill.

Altea has numerous restaurants and bars ranging from quaint to truly gourmet, some are mentioned in foreign "foodie" publications. Many of these establishments have incredible views of the Mediterranean and the nearby mountain ranges with their fairy-lit towns. There are cafés and bakeries everywhere, great for a morning coffee stroll or packing for a picnic.

The surrounding region has many pretty villages along the coast and inland that are famous for their foods, wines, fiestas and markets.

Altea is easily accessed from Alicante or Valencia airport.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is ground floor and was deliberately chosen by the family for this reason. The courtyard at the back of the lounge continues straight out into the communal pool area. This is a great if you have children or just want to have a quick dip.

Also this region of Spain is well travelled by cyclists whether in winter training or during the season. Being a ground floor apartment the access for bikes straight out onto the street has been great for the keener family members!

Due to the great location local convenience stores are only a shot walk away making unnecessary to constantly rely on a vehicle.

There are many local beaches, Altea, La Villa Joyosa and Calpe are our favourites. Beach towels and other picnic equipment, including chairs are supplied so you can travel light!

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

Casa Leah was perfect for our Easter week away. We had a really warm welcome from Coni, and spent the week following the recommendations provided by the owners. Great location for some outstanding restaurants and cafes, and a really good base to explore other nearby towns. The flat itself has everything that you need and more, and is clearly kept in fantastic condition. All in all a great value week in the sun, we can't wait to return.

Lovely apartment ideally situated to old town and beach.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely modern apartment with everything you need for your stay. Situated at the heart of old town and within walking distance to all amenities. A walk along the promenade to Albir and a couple of beer stops on the way , was a perfect way to relax.

Lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home after 12 nights in Casa Leah,Altea. A great apartment,with a well equipped Kitchen. The lounge/ diner was very comfortable, and it was good to have English tv...not that we go on holiday to watch tv but it was good to keep up with the recent world events! We didnt use the pool just because it was November and a little chilly, but it was only about 4 steps away from the patio! Casa Leah was well placed for the old town,Church,square etc....so many amazing places to eat and drink even if we were out of season!

Altea is on a hill,so not very good for people with mobility problems! In saying that we came home fitter than when we arrived!

Mark was a pleasure to deal with over the booking and gave us some great info on the area before we arrived. Coni the manager and next door neighbour was very pleasant and helpful on our arrival.

All in all a successful holiday! Thank you!

Lovely, central, clean apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We are back after 2 weeks in Altea. We loved every minute. The apartment was perfect. Even though it's a rental it really did feel loved and lived in. A library of books, CDs and area guides. Loads of clean towels and comfy beds. Comfy couches for siestas!

We loved the family bakery at the bottom of the steps past the school as well as a soccer play area for our son. Coffee stop for us!

The pizzeria at the top of the steps was great for a sneaky snack some evenings. Staff so friendly in both places.

Two weeks was not long enough to explore and visit all the restaurants nearby so we will have to come back. The main square was only minutes away.

We walked to Albir a lot as well as taking the tram to nearby towns. It was special coming home to the old town every evening.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Perfect apartment in Altea old town

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and two teenage daughters have just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Leah. The apartment was in a perfect location, 3 minutes walk from the beautiful old town on the hill with it's wonderful shops and restaurants and around 15 minutes walk to the beach. There are lots of supermarkets within walking distance. The apartment was perfect for our needs, just the right size for the 4 of us, immaculate and equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen was brilliant with dishwasher, washing machine, oven, microwave and extensive cooking equipment.

We loved being on the ground floor with the terrace and easy access to the pool which the kids used extensively. Although it is fairly small it was never busy, we had it to ourselves most of the time and it was open from 9am - 9pm.

Mark couldn't have been more helpful and friendly as a host, answering queries very promptly.

I would definitely recommend Casa Leah to any friends and family and am already thinking about when we can go back!
