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.

An amazing site.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent views. Character property

  • 5 of 5

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 😁?

Brilliant Holiday

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

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.

Mascarat has a pebble beach that slopes gently. As has Altea and Albir. Sandy beaches abound from Calpe to Moraira and beyond. Benidorm has some huge sandy beaches. Cala Finestrat past Levante Beach in Benidorm is a lovely small bay with a beach and many good sea front cafes and restaurants offering excellent Menu Del Diaz meals wine or beer included. In fact on the coast from Altea to Benidorm you could try a different restaurant every day for weeks and still have new ones to try. See guide.


Car or Taxi essential. The nearest airport is Alicante, 60 kms (approx 40 mins) from the villa. Take the AP7 motorway to junction 64 Altea/Calpe, here you will join the N332 and take the exit towards Calpe for approximately 10 minutes following the large signs to Urb Altea Hills on your left.


Calpe is towards the north and about 20 mins away. Albir has many good shops and is just past Altea along the sea front. This leads you towards the large resort of Benidorm about another 20 mins away. For the mountains head up past Altea La Vieja to Guadalesque.

We provide details of most local sights and attractions in the villa guide along with brochures and maps.

Further Details:

Terra Mitica is a theme part near Benidorm about 6 miles away.

Aqua Landia is a water fun park just past Albir only 3 miles away.

Swim with Dolphins - water slides.

Benidorm Palace is a Show/Cabaret/Dining facility of very good quality.

(Some topless nudity!)

Puerto Lois Campomanes/ Greenwich Village is the Yacht Marina opposite Urb Altea Hills. Turn right past the Mas Y Mas Supermecardo and Bank. Restaurants ski-boats and boats available along with diving.
