Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 5, fully fitted kitchen, double reception room

Apartamento Piteres is a renovated, elegant Spanish apartment in the heart of Altea. This duplex apartment (on 2 floors) has been carefully designed and benefits from a large and airy split-level living room, which opens onto an ample south-facing balcony with lovely views across the bay of Altea.

Location: Apartamento Piteres is in the centre of the charming town of Altea, just 45 minutes from Alicante airport. Altea is a restful resort with plenty to see and do without the hubbub of some of the busier coastal towns in the region. The town is a holiday haven for the more discerning tourist who will be captivated by its medieval cobbled streets, its picture book old quarter, and the delights of its palm-fringed seafront esplanade.

Altea has three parts – the new town, the old town, and the esplanade. Apartamento Piteres is in the old town (casco antiguo), approached through cobbled streets flanked by whitewashed houses adorned with bougainvillea. At the summit is the church square – dominated by the church of the Virgen del Consuelo, with its famous blue tiled Moorish domes. All around are arts shops and galleries, together with excellent restaurants and bars. By contrast is the esplanade – not a boisterous affair, but rather a pleasant place to meet and relax – popular with Spanish families dining and chatting. Separating the old part and the seafront is the modern town. This is a busy shopping area with plenty of antique shops. There are also many agreeable cafes where you can watch the world go.

Arts & Entertainment: Historically, Altea is a cultural town – a centre for artists and painters with exhibitions all year in the many galleries as well as the Museo Navarro Ramon and the Casa de Cultura. Situated in the old town is the Palau Altea – an important Arts Centre in the Valencia region. Here you can experience theatre, all types of music, opera, ballet, and of course flamenco. Fiestas happen throughout the year in Altea, often accompanied with brilliant firework displays. The battle of the Christians and Moors fiesta is at the end of September, when the town becomes a riot of musical processions and parades.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and the apartment was beautiful. There’s nothing I can really think of that could improve it, and I was most impressed with your book selection.



You have almost everything in there a person could need. The decor is first class and the apartment is spacious with a cosiness feel about it.



Thanks again,

Can't speak highly enough of this apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a short break at Apartamento Piteres and were delighted with the accommodation.

Before departure we received detailed information and friendly communication from the owner about everything that we needed to know.

On arrival the apartment was spotlessly clean and there was an (unexpected) pack of groceries to get us going.

Everything was exactly as described or better, and the apartment was both well-equipped and well-maintained. It's location two minutes from the Church Square was perfect for us, and the views from the living area and balcony were great.

For some people the absence of UK TV channels on the TV would be a problem, but for us it was a bonus! And there was a cd player, with selection of classical music, and a DVD player with an assortment of films for those who feel the need.

This is a great base for an out of season break exploring the area, or equally in the summer it's proximity to some great beaches would make it family-friendly.

Un séjour au top !!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine superbe chez Victor à Altéa. L'appartement est magnifique avec une vue sublime sur la mer. Il est situé à 10mn à pied de la plage et au cœur de la vielle ville. Victor est très accueillant et accessible. Il a répondu à chacune de nos demandes dans un temps record et toujours avec gentillesse. Je tiens à le remercier chaleureusement. Altéa est une très belle ville pittoresque avec ses petites ruelles et ses boutiques. Nous avons eu un vrai coup de cœur... Attention si vous avez des enfants en bas âges, il y a des escaliers partout...pas évident avec les poussettes ;-) Le bord de mer est plus accessible et il y a beaucoup de restaurants. Nous retournons là-bas sans soucis et retournerons chez Victor les yeux fermés car nous avons passé un super séjour.

A fantastic apartment with a picture postcard view

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Altea before and when looking for somewhere to stay we were immediately attracted by the views over the bay from the terrace and we were definitely not disappointed.

The apartment is traditional yet with all mod cons and is really well set out with the 2 bedrooms on the ground floor and the kitchen, dining area and lounge on the 2nd floor with the really good sized terrace. The views from inside the apartment and from the terrace over the bay of Altea are really breath taking and we enjoyed many hours just chilling here.

While we only ate breakfast in the apartment the kitchen is really well equipped with lots of equipment and utensils as well as a dishwasher. A small utility room off the kitchen has the washing machine, fridge and freezer.

Victor was very helpful throughout the booking process and provided lots of information about the apartment and surrounding area including organising a taxi to collect us at the airport. The welcome pack which included water, milk, bread, butter, sugar, coffee, wine and tonic water was most welcome as our flight was delayed over 4hrs and everywhere was closed when we got there at 1.30am.

The apartment is only 5 minutes from the main square at the old church with the numerous restaurants, bars and shops and only about 10 mins from the beach.

The quality of the apartment and it's location (and that view!) really helped make our holiday in Altea one to remember and we would definitely recommend it to anyone. We will definitely be back sometime in the future.

More than expected

  • 5 of 5

We where initially unsure of what to expect as we had not booked this type of holiday before but the owner was able to set us at ease and supply all the information requested. When we entered the apartment and went up the stairs to the living area the view that hits you made the holiday, we sat for hours just relaxing and looking at the views. The accommodation was first class a home from home with all the facilities you could ask for, the short walk to the town square with its beautiful church and several choices of bars and restaurants both in the square and radiating from it the whitewashed street catering for all tastes. It turned out to be just the relaxing holiday we needed, we have recommended this property and its owner to our family and friends and are seriously considering another visit in the near future.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a week’s stay in Apartamento Piteres, and the only problem was we wish it could have been longer.

First impressions of the apartment were the amount of space and airiness and the absolutely stunning views from the lounge and balcony.

The apartment had all the facilities we needed, and we loved sitting out on the terrace with it’s great views of the bay – both during the day and at night!

This was our first time in Altea, and we were surprised how lovely it is. We discovered the flat was just a few minutes walk to the church square in the old town where there are loads of really good restaurants and bars.

Because there was so much to do we hardly watched TV, but it was good having all the main UK TV channels. There is also a very good sound system in the lounge- we connected our iPhones and streamed on wifi which was perfect for enjoying music whilst out on the balcony.

We hired bicycles to explore the beautiful areas in and around Altea, and even went into Benidorm, which I suppose is the flipside of the coin, but fun all the same.

We would definitely recommend this apartment, which is so well situated. We’re now looking forward to our next visit.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Apartamento Piteres is situated in a fantastic location high up near the church square in the old town with outstanding views down to the seafront.

The property is light, airy, very spacious and relaxing with everything included to make your stay comfortable.

Vic is really helpful and attentive making sure everything is satisfactory.We had excellent communication regarding arrangements both whilst in the UK and in Spain. Nothing was any trouble.

There is so much to see and do in this area, you really are spoilt for choice.

We did a couple of half day walks which were quite strenuous at times but with views to die for.

We also drove the coast road from Altea up towards Denia stopping off at Calpe and Moraira and various other photo stops - beautiful.

We visited Fuentes de Algar - don't forget to take your costumes if you go. We also had a fun few hours in Benidorm which we did by train.

There are restaurants in abundance both in Altea old town and on the sea front with menus to suit all tastes and pockets.

We were a group of 4 (2 couples). We enjoyed days together and days doing our own thing. Our favourite spot was on the balcony early evening before dinner and late evening after dinner discussing the days events - Just perfect.

Don't hesitate in booking this rental - just do it - you won't be disappointed.
