Listen up, and I'll tell y'all about Altea

As soon as you catch a glimpse of Altea's palm-lined seafront, you'll realise you're onto something especial here. Add in the narrow cobbled streets, the wide Mediterranean beaches, and the whitewashed buildings gleaming in the Costa Blanca sun, and you're staring down the barrel of a seriously Spanish vacation. An Altea vacation rental is a quieter choice than some of the nearby resorts like Benidorm or Alicante, and might be a good bet if you're looking to sun yourself all day without dancing into the small hours afterwards. Though it would be rude not to try at least a glass of the local sangria.

Life's a beach, and then you see the ones at Altea

For all its cultural attractions and its charming old town, 1 look at most of the vacationers in Altea and you can tell what they're here for. Because an Altea vacation rental is all about the beaches. Some of them are pebbly, some are sandy, and all of them are to die for. And if you're looking to make your Altea trip a little livelier, then the area provides plenty of opportunities for boat and jet-ski rentals. When you're done out on the water or the beaches, you won't want to miss getting stuck into the delights of Altea's laid-back restaurant culture.

In Altea, these streets were made for walkin'

The church of La Mare de Deu del Consol is so obvious you can't possibly miss it, with its elegant blue domes towering over the town. The square out front offers up eye-wateringly gorgeous views towards the sea, and if you find yourself inspired by the sight of the Mediterranean, then you can rest assured you're not the only one. Altea's pretty old town is full of galleries. Turn up during the summer months, and it might be worth booking onto a walking tour of the Altea's winding streets if you really want to uncover their secrets.

The Aztecs worshipped the sun, and so do the Alteans

Sun-worshippers come from far and wide to offer themselves up as offerings on these Spanish beaches. And even in the context of Spain's Mediterranean coast, Altea's sheltered situation means its climate is spectacularly welcoming. Summers are hot and languid, with Mediterranean sea breezes to freshen them a touch, while winters are deliciously mild. As for rain, chances are you won't see any, but if it does come down, then it really comes down. September and October are the months where you're most likely to see a downpour, so best pack an umbrella.

I say, could one tell me the way to Benidorm?

Your Altea vacation rental will put you squarely on Spain's famous Costa Blanca. This handsome stretch of coastline on the Mediterranean Sea is home to such popular resorts as Benidorm and Alicante, and if you feel like you're hearing a lot of the Queen's English being spoken in Altea's restaurants and bars, it's because the area is a favorite with British tourists, suckered in by its wide sand and pebble beaches. And the lovely wine and food, of course. The waters are warm and largely calm, and with minimal tides to worry about, the Mediterranean is a good place to try your hand at sailing, if you're so inclined.
