Two charming 2 bedroom cottages set in huge gardens leading directly to the beach of this secluded bay. The sea gently laps onto the shingle beach at the bottom of these private gardens providing an idyllic setting for the 2 adjoining cottages which offer unrivalled views of Charco Bay where one can enjoy snorkelling and swimming. One cottage sleeps 4 and the other 5. Both cottages have two bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, kitchen & lounge/in-door dining room which leads directly onto a terrace fully equipped for al fresco dining and sunbathing. If you have a large family or a group of friends both cottages can be rented together or, of course, they are available separately. As well as having the sea and beach on your doorstep, walking across the cliff tops offers magnificent views of the Mediterranean and the Charco Medieval Moorish lookout tower. The city of Alicante is outlined along the coast about 25 Kms. away to the south and to the north lies Altea approximately 20 kilometres away.
There are several golf courses in close proximity as well as the popular Terra Mitica theme park, Aqualandia water park and MundoMar. Additionally, the Terra Natura (safari park / zoo) and AquaNatura (featuring sealife) parks in the Benidorm area. There are also Go-Carting circuits for the more adventurous and the young at heart! The city of Elche offers SafariPark Elche and Valencia the City of the Arts and Ciences Museum.
And of course Benidorm offers a great variety of activities for all ages as does the quaint, artistic town of Altea, both to the north. A picturesque 1.5 hour drive (or trainride) north adjacent to miles of orange groves takes you to Spain's third largest city, Valencia, with all its history and glory. To the south there are several possible excursions, Alicante for example, with a huge marina, two castles, night-life and shopping; Elche (the world's largest palm trees exporter) with a breath taking botanical garden; Orihuela with dozens of churches enclaved in its historic Old Town; city of Murcia which is famous for its gastronomy and it's historic Old Town. And it has good shopping too!
