About Bolland Property
My wife and I are retired and we bought the site and built our villa in 1999 to 2000. The views are fantastic as is Altea Hills a very upmarket urbanization. We extended the Queens Tower in 2010 and this provides a delightful new experience. All our guest have left enchanted with the area and some have even bought on the urbanization. The furnishings are Arabian because I worked in the Middle East and brought back most of my villa contents with me. The Costa Blanca is a superb place to holiday.
Bolland Property purchased this Villa in 1999
Why Bolland Property chose Altea
We bought a plot and built our Castle in Spain. We love it and hope you will too. Alicante Airport (aka El ATET) now has a new terminal building and you will soon exit and be at the villa via the A7 motorway.
What makes this Villa unique
The climate in the Hills is delightful. In high summer the gentle breeze keeps you cool on the hottest days that you will spend in the glorious pool. Shops abound for food, drink and anything you might need. Altea is full of designer boutiques with the best quality clothes, shoes, jewelery etc. Restaurant cater for all tastes and pockets. The Yacht Club in Puerto Loius Campomanes or Greenwich Village as the area is also called as it is on the O degrees meridian has a superb restaurant. Albir has a McDonald's and many great Chinese and other style eateries. Do look in our Guest Information File for adverts and reviews and approximate prices.

Fantastic views from a unique property.
Villa was clean and comfortable and had a real 'home from home' feel about it. Everything you could possibly need on a self-catering villa holiday was at hand - and more! We loved the nia (covered terrace), and pool area particularly, and although the drive up to the villa and the driveway itself are quite steep, the views over Altea, Albir and beyond to Benidorm up the coast are well worth it! We spent a lot of time just staring out to sea. The tower is a really unusual feature, and the roof terrace with its castellated walls is quite unique; like staying in a little Moorish castle! From booking to checking out the owner Garry couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and prompt in responding to us, and we had the added reassurance of knowing that a housekeeper/maintenance man were only a phone call away if we had any issues, though we had no need to call upon them. Overall a very nice stay, thanks!
Ian thanks for your kind comments I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
An amazing site.
From the first day, it was like being in a paradise. We spent two weeks in this fantastic villa, where we had a wonderful family experience. I went with my wife and two children, and I would definitely repeat.
One of the most beautiful things about this fantastic place, are the views as well as its large pool. It is a perfect place to live the holidays. I will repeat it without hesitation.
Thank you for such fantastic service.
Recommended to go both groups as a single family, as there is a lot of space and privacy. It is much enjoyed, as there are nearby a lot of sites, beaches, coves and many other places to visit.
I only have to thank you for that joyful stay.
Thank you for your kind words!!
You are more than welcome to come return any time and as promised I will look after you should you return.
Excellent views. Character property
Located high on the chic Altea Hills urbanisation you will definitely need a car to get around. The views from the villa are fantastic during the day and the night. Pool was well kept and crystal clear. Plenty of comfortable places to sit in the sunshine or the shade.
The accommodation itself was very unique and full of character with eastern influences and original artworks. The Queen's tower was lovely and had its own private terrace. Kitchen very well equipped and user friendly. The whole villa had loads of space and we found we enjoyed eating meals outside on the terrace as much as driving into Calpe, Altea or Albir. Any problems and Steve the maintenance and pool chap was only a WhatsApp call away. We were a party of four adults ( Mom Dad and two adult daughters 26 and 22) and thoroughly enjoyed our 12 day stay. Would we come back? Absolutely 😁�
We had a great family holiday in the villa. Three couples and a one year old. Pool was fantastic and was well used by us all. Great barbecues in the evening with amazing views over the sea with some amazing sunsets. The short drive to Calpe was great for a day on a lovely clean beach. Also some lovely meals in the old town of Altea. A great time was had by us all and hope to return.

Just back from 2 weeks in this fantastic villa. Views to die for, amazing pool - I now have a mermaid for a daughter. Perfect location with so much to see & do in the area. Altea is a lovely town with a nice seafront promenade & a beautiful old town with an abundance of restaurants & lovely shops. We stayed at the villa with my parents & 2 children it was a perfect size for all of us with plenty of outside space. The villa is well equipped with all that you would need, comfortable beds and a lovely sea breeze. We had a fantastic holiday & did not want to leave. Would highly recommend it.
Thanks for your kind words. It's not just a holiday villa so is very well equipped as you found and everyone loves the views and areas around like Altea, Albir Calpe and even Benedorm. We get many return visitors who join our VIP program.
Lovely getaway up a very big hill but the views are stunning day and night. Home from home.
Three kids, wife and myself for a weeks getaway and was excellent. Met John briefly for a handover and decent chap who was very helpful. Furnishings and decor quirky and arabic and the Tower is unique. Despite being March had a go in the pool with great views over the edge.
