Lovely apartment, beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in this apartment in early/ mid June - 4 adults with two small kids in tow. It is elegantly kitted out in a great complex. Every day brought bright sunshine, a dip in the pool, a wander along the beachfront to one of the many summer bars and restaurants. Suzy & John were extremely helpful & accommodating and their agent was always on call.

Thoroughly recommended. Altea is a beautiful, unspoilt spot and you'll struggle to find a better apartment for your Euros.

Owner's Response: Altea is indeed a beautiful 'white town'. From the sea-front, pretty cobbled streets, with an eclectic selection of boutiques & cosmopolitan restaurants wind up the hill to a pedestrian square with its blue-domed church & pavement bars overlooking the sparkling Altea bay.

First Class!

  • 1 of 5

Villa Gadea is a luxurious, well equipped, well maintained and well placed apartment near to the beach and restaurants in Altea. The complex is a good size with good amenities but was also relatively peaceful and quiet even-though it caters well for families with small children such as ours. It was also very safe.

Altea is a lovely place and we arrived in time to see an annual celebration and firework display which was the best I've ever seen.

All in all an excellent place to spend a holiday! Thanks, Ron!

Very luxurious in the most beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

THe luxury penthouse apartment lived up to and surpassed the photos. The spacious living area with the terrace ensured that the apartment was comfortable with everything you could wish for that made the holiday the most relaxing and enjoyable experience. The complex offers the most well manicured grounds with a fantastic pool and breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. Local shops are easy to get to and if you wanted to venture further the tram system was easy to use. The five star hotel within the complex was perfect for using their facilities and the bar offered the most amazing cocktails! We would recommend the apartment to anyone wishing to have a great holiday!

Beautiful seaside cocndos

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Altea, including the penthouse villa. The condo had great views from almost every room and the large balcony was well used! The staff were very pleasant and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend. The condo had a clothes washing machine, but no dryer. There were racks for drying clothes though. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend.

Owner's Response: Its good to know our guests enjoyed their stay and were able to make use of the many features of the apartment as well as the variety of restaurants and bars in close proximity. A good supermarket is 15 minutes walk and similar distance to the train station for journeys to Alicante and in the opposite direction to Denia. A bus service is also available. We always strive to provide a pleasurarble experience for our guests and its good to have positive feedback.

Relaxing with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We were a family party of six adults looking for a short break in the sun in relaxing surroundings. Villa Gadea was all we wished for with enough space to suit our needs and very well equipped. The views from the apartment were beautiful and the complex well maintained and private. Within easy reach of the beach although pebbles the peace and quiet made up for it. The good swimmers amongst us even made the swim over to the island. Paella at the first beach bar was excellent. It was our first visit to Altea and did not authentic Spanish town.Transport is necessary when staying at Villa Gadea but if like us you don't want to hire a car the local taxis were very good and didn't let us down once. Six seaters were unavailable but the cost was still reasonable.

Ron was extremely helpful, keeping in touch and always replying promptly to my questions before, during and after our stay. Thankyou for a lovely week in a wonderful setting

Owner's Response: I am so pleased Pauline enjoyed her holiday even though transport was not ideal. Our Penthouse is located in reasonable proximity of the 5 star Hotel Villa Gadea and is sufficiently far from the centre of Altea to provide a very relaxing setting and atmosphere with all the quality restaurants, bars and beach minutes away . Although shopping can be purchased from the local supermarket 15 minutes walk away, we always recommend having a car even if its not used very much as it provides great flexibility in getting to the very nice places in close proximity.

The 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, the old town is set on a hill above the waterfront. This picturesque village with its many little streets of immaculate white washed houses is a fascinating place to stroll around, exploring the boutiques and galleries. At the summit is the town square, Plaza de la Iglesia with its magnificent views and the church boasting one of the finest blue domes in the region. Rest here in one of the outdoor cafes and enjoy tapas and a drink. There are many restaurants, bars and numerous art galleries in the side streets. In summer the streets are pedestrianised and artists & craftsmen display their works. Altea has always attracted writers and artists because of its special ambience. From the old town it's a short walk to the sea-front and the newer palm-lined esplanade packed with restaurants serving delicious international cuisines.

Golf: There are many Golf courses within easy reach from 9 to 27 holes.
