About the property

Front line stunning apartment in the heart of Altea town

Best of both worlds... our apartment offers fantastic views over the Med and the chance to experience the traditional Spanish town of Altea.

This stunning sunny sea front apartment is situated in a traditional apartment block in the select area of Altea. There are many high spec residential developments surrounding Altea but none offer this extremely convenient location in the heart of Altea (you really don't need a car!) and the closeness to the sea (less than a stones throw!). There is everything you need in this home from home environment, which is suitable for young people, families and the older person whether for holidays or long term stays (over winter). Only a 30 second stroll from your front door into the beautiful Altea town, which retains it's charm and character, yet at the same time supplying a myriad of restaurants, cafes and shops of all types and prices for the international clientele.

We can even offer transfers to and from the airport if required.

Altea: Because of its privileged location and brightness, ‘a village roasted by the sun’, according to Gabriel Miro; Altea has always attracted many bohemians. Artists, painters, sculptors and writers of many nationalities have been drawn to the town, making their home here and benefiting from the inspiration they receive from its unique setting. They in turn, have contributed to its rich cultural life, and the official title, ‘Cultural Capital of the Valencia Region’, has been bestowed on Altea. The University of Culture and Fine Arts is adjacent to the old town, and now attracts a whole new generation of artists. The University has a Theatre of Performing Arts, where distinguished ensembles appear regularly. Details of forthcoming events are available from the University. In support of its mantle as Cultural Capital, Altea is also a town with a special taste for antiques and hand-crafted goods.

Leisure Activities: Whether you want a quiet holiday or a fun-packed one there is something for everyone in and around Altea - the Disney Style Terra Mitica theme park at Benidorm (just 30 minutes away by car), Aqualandia Water Park, and the Mundomar Exotic Animal and Marine Park. There are Safari Parks at Aitana and Vergel, Waterfalls at Bolulla, Caves at Benidoleig and Canalobre. For superb international shows with dinner the renowned Benidorm Palace and the Casino Mediterráneo at Villajoyosa are not to be missed. All along the Altea coast there are excellent Water Sports facilities - including Snorkelling and Scuba Diving, Boating, Wind Surfing, Water Skiing and Fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As a tabloid journo I have to be a

man of few words, so I'll just say It ticks all the boxes and make special

mention of Diane's very positive 'customer relations'. My wife and I would

like to go back in late Autumn but it is already booked, which says it all

Peaceful Altea

  • 4 of 5

Altea is a wonderful place to visit -if you are looking for a relaxing stay with plenty of options for visiting other places by bus or the train.

The apartment has everything you could need and has plenty of space. Diane was helpful and easily contactable- while we were there one of the showers was out of action which was a nuisance for 5 girls! It was fixed during our stay however.

The only problem we had were the beds which we found to be very hard and I personally thought they were uncomfortable.

Overall a lovely place to visit but no siestas or lie ins!

Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment. Clean and well stocked. Centrally located opposite the beach. Altea is a lovely resort which has a wonderful selection of bars, restaurants and cafes. Shops are good too. Nice sea front. A good family resort too. Easy travel to neighbouring towns such as Calpe and Benidorm by bus or train which are accessed within metres of the apartment block. Wouldn't hesitate using the apartment again. Fabulous!

Lovely apartment in fantastic location in Altea

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in this lovely apartment. The view is a beautiful as the pictures show and the location on the promenade is terrific for walking and dining and it's a quick walk up to the Old Town as well.

Kitchen is well equipped; lots of hot water and new appliances. Bedrooms are quiet.

Excellent welcome and correspondence with Margaret and Diane. The internet went off early on and they both responded quickly and effectively. We had a car and found parking in the nearby Tram station was always available and free (in January/February).

Highly recommend this lovely apartment

4 Midlands Blokes Spend A Fab Week In Altea

  • 5 of 5

This excellently equipped, well-decorated, light and and spacious apartment met all of our needs. The sea view from the full length balcony was wonderful. It provided a truly glorious start to the day as well as a cool(er) end after a long evening out on the town. The lounge had plenty of comfortable sofa seating as well as a good size dining table. The large LCD Sony TV is equipped with UK channels - not that watched much, apart from some Wimbledon tennis - and was complemented by efficient WiFi. If we had been inclined to dine in, the fully equipped kitchen would have fully met our needs. It was good for our party to have two separate, modern bathrooms at our disposal rather than en suite arrangements. The bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds and plenty of cupboard space. We received a first class welcome from Diana and Denis and the unexpected provision of meat, cheese, bread, milk and orange juice gave us a good start. We ate out every night in Altea which has an abundance of restaurants within easy walking distance of the apartment, let only venturing up the hill to the old town. Our favourite local bar was 8 de copes which was only a hundred yards away on the promenade. Like another reviewer, we also enjoyed frequenting L'Interdit cafe just below the apartment. If you wish to venture out of Altea, we would recommend the 25 km drive to the spectacular scenery and castle at El Castell de Guadalest. From there it is a fairly short drive to the waterfalls and natural pools at Algar. Our only complaint was the scorching weather every day of our stay but we can't blame that on the apartment owner! We would love to come again but prefer to go somewhere new each year for our annual week in the sun.
