: Altea, Junction 64
The village of Altea is one of the most memorable and picturesque on the Costa Blanca. White washed houses belonging to artisans line the cobbled lanes of the quaint, yet stylish old town - all leading up to the stunning blue-domed church of La Virgen de la Consuelo. Tempting boutiques line the narrow lanes, whilst cafe tables, shaded by orange trees, spill out onto the cobbles for those relaxing breaks! Summer brings on the plethora of arts and craft stalls all around the church, where local artists come to display and sell their work. The restaurants in the area offer delectable cuisine of all styles to suit every palate - seafood being a real delicacy. Apart from the nearest beautiful beaches in Altea and Calpe (10 minutes away), Altea is 1/2 h from theme parks and water parks for real family fun. There are several golf courses in and around the area as well as facilities for water sports and scuba diving, adventure activities or breathtaking mountain walks.
