LUXURIOUS TOWNHOUSE WITH COURTYARD IN THE HEART OF ALTEA´S HISTORIC OLD TOWN

Altea House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom townhouse. Sleeps 4

This charming house has been lovingly renovated and tastefully decorated to the very highest standards. Situated in a prime position in the heart of Altea's historic center. It has air conditioning, heating and double glazing throughout.

The antique front door leads you into a delightful haven of peace and tranquillity. The unique private courtyard bursting with exotic palms and aromatic plants is perfect for alfresco dining, bbq's or just relaxing with a good book. The finest linens and towels compliment the comfortable bedrooms and deluxe bathroom. An extensive selection of English books, DVD's and CD's is available for guests as well as information on points of interest and local attractions. Free WIFI available. English / Norwegian satellite television. Dutch or French satellite television can be arranged if requested. We are more than happy to arrange airport transfers and any shopping requirements prior to arrival.

The commercial part of the town,offers its market ,boutiques and the newer palm-lined esplanade packed with restaurants serving delicious international cuisines.

You would expect Altea to have a harbour, being located beside the sea as it is, but in fact Altea has 2 harbours, the old fishing harbour and a somewhat newer Sports harbour

Altea holds the biggest street market in the region and visitors flock from all over the area to purchase fresh locally grown produce and gifts, the market is held on Tuesdays from 8.30am till 1pm.

Although most of our guests seem more than content to while away the day relaxing and enjoying the easy lifestyle associated with Altea´s old town, and beach, there are a multitude of things to do in the surrounding area. Due to Altea´s cultural status (it is home to the University of Fine Arts) there are dozens of art galleries and antique and craft shops, selling items unique to the area. As well as the many sports on offer, there are also many attractions for children (and the young at heart)

City life in Alicante (45 mins) and Valencia (1 hr 15 mins) is offset by the stunning Costa Blanca mountain scenery, home to the ancient monastery village of Guadalest. Altea is only approximately 20 minutes drive from the night life of Benidorm , and is handily placed for visiting its many attractions.

The famous water park of Aqualandia and Terra Mitica, Spain´s largest theme park with rides from around the world. Also the very popular Mundomar Dolphinarium.

BEAUTIFUL TOWN HOUSE IN ALTEA OLD TOWN

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 10 days in a beautiful town house, it had everything we needed and have recommended it to friends and family. The house is a very high standard, the terrace was an ideal place to enjoy the morning sun and we loved sitting in the courtyard in the evenings, it has a lovely atmosphere. Sue and Pete made us feel very welcome and were close by if we needed them. Altea old town is the perfect place to stay with its winding streets and gorgeous restaurants and shops. The train station was close by so it was easy to visit neighbouring towns.

EXCELLENT HOLIDAY IN ALTEA

  • 5 of 5
We would like to reiterate all the positive comments posted in previous reviews.
In short – the house was in the perfect location near to the picturesque church square and a good selection of restaurants. It was wonderfully and thoughtfully equipped with everything you could possibly require and Sue couldn’t have been any more helpful and obliging from our initial enquiry to our leaving. The added bonus was the beautiful weather.
Many thanks Sue, and we hope to return soon.

WONDERFUL HOUSE SET IN A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house and we really liked Altea. Beautiful old town, lovely coast line and good restaurants. The house itself was so comfortable and smart, with really nice touches. Everything had been thought through. It was a joy to be there. We loved sitting on the terrace and listening to the church bells. The courtyard garden was also wonderful. Sue was very helpful and friendly so we felt at home from the start. We hope to visit again next year.

HIDDEN PEARL IN THE OLD TOWN OF ALTEA

  • 5 of 5
We just celebrated Christmas in this lovely townhouse recently. Sue and Pete, the owners, made our stay wonderful and we just can't wait to get back again!!! The house is very nice and comfortable where the old charm blends with the modern. The owners have managed to give the house a very homely feel, and it has everything you need to have a pleasant stay, they even thought about Christmas lights, little surprise for our son, spices and the essential coffee :-) We had a fantastic time and highly recommend this luxurious townhouse.

CHARMING TOWNHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This a lovely place to stay, very conveniently situated in the centre of the old town within a minutes walking distance of many restaurants/cafes and interesting shops and the Cathedral. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished with all the mod cons but the gem of the property is the courtyard with so many beautiful plants and a lovely cool place to sit. The owners were very helpful and pleasant and dealt with a couple of queries promptly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone apart from those who would struggle with the steep stairs.

VERY NICE STAY IN ALTEA OLD TOWN.

  • 5 of 5
Our one week stay in Altea old town was a very good experience.

We agreed with the owner for her to arrange for transport from and to airport - it all went precicely as agreed. She was very serviceminded and lives in a house just a few minutes walk from the apartment.

The apartment vere fully up to our expectations It is easy to see that the owner is putting a lot of efford in keeping up the standards! It was fully renovated with high quality finish and lots of interior deails. Kitchen and bath very well fitted, clean and of good modern standards. Spaicious living room and roof terrace.
Must mention the floors. The tiles had their origin in other old Spanish buildings, refurbished and then reused. All floors fitted with heating.

We used some of our days to do short hikes on foot.
Sierra Helada Albir to Benidorm, Aitana, Faro Albir etc
The rest of our days and nights we spent in Altea old town. We used the nearby resturants and bars and had a lot of good experiences.
We also spent an evening in Benidorm old town for tapas - recommended.

The stay in Altea old town was a very good and different alternative to hotels and apartment complexes for us. We will surely recommend the apartment(s)for our friends and others.asking.

Situated about 7 kilometres north of Benidorm on the Costa Blanca, Spain, the pretty coastal town of Altea has often been called 'the artists capital of the Costa Blanca', as the narrow streets of the old town are lined with the workshops and galleries of the artists and potters who have made their home there.

The picturesque town of Altea embodies both modern and old Spain. It is one of the most charming places on the Costa Blanca; sheltered by mountains and overlooking the sea. Altea old town itself has long been recognised as the Bohemian centre for musicians, artists and writers from all over Europe.

The old town is set on a hill above the waterfront.

Calle Santo Domingo - in the heart of historic Altea: To get acquainted with Altea, you should leave your watch behind you, and roam the streets at your leisure. Stepping out of Calle Santo Domingo and turning left takes you to the Church Square - the focal point of the Old Town, and home to the landmark blue and white dome...

Other Activities: golf, theme parks, paddle tennis, pitch and putt.sailing
