This charming two-bedroom villa is located in the town of Alfas del Pi and just 45 minutes drive north by motorway from Alicante airport. Set in a quiet residential area with mountain and sea views, the property is ideally situated for access to other local towns such as Altea, Albir, Alfas del Pi and Polop. In addition, the larger resort of Benidorm is just 15 minutes away.
There is a private and secluded swimming pool for use by guests, set in the gardens with a covered terrace to one side should the sun get a bit too hot! That terrace is also wonderful for lunch by the pool, and there is a barbecue for guest use as well - you have to decide who does the cooking though!
A little about Alfas del Pi: L’Alfás del Pi is a small town with a fortress that was built for protection against Berber pirate attacks. The name Alfás del Pí, sown land, appropriately describes the area, characterized by residential zones, with an active cultural activity. Its character owes much to the beach on the Mediterranean Sea, which can be reached by footpath, and its lighthouse.
In July, the town is illuminated for the celebration of its famous film festival.
After strolling trough the urban centre, a relaxing visit to Albir beach is a must. However, it is impossible to leave the city without having visited the lighthouse (accessible from the beach: just follow the old road) from where one can enjoy lovely views of the Mediterranean Sea. Peaceful Alfás del Pí is only 5 Kilometres from Benidorm.
Watersports in the local area: The Region of Valencia is great for those who enjoy sailing and water sports. The facilities and marinas are among the best in Europe, recent events such as the America’s Cup in Valencia and the departure of the Volvo Ocean Race in Alicante have been based here. The constant Mediterranean winds and mild temperatures in the Region of Valencia provide ideal conditions to enjoy competitive or recreational sailing in a stunning setting. If you’re more of a thrillseeker, just take a trip down to the shore where you will find plenty of schools and companies ready to help you have a great time surfing, sailing, canoeing, diving and a host of other activities that you've always wanted to try.
Places to visit: Tired of the beach and pool? Then why not take a day off and visit the interior of this region. There are many local villages that offer that special experience that will let you see in to the heart of the local Spanish community and life style.
Take a trip up to Polop de la Marina to visit the main square with numerous fountains. The mountain behind the village, 'El Leon Dormido' (the Sleeping Lion) is a very popular photographic image, whilst the castle at the top of the village has stunning views down to the coast.
Guadalest, the most photographed village in the area, has a very interesting museum showing the lifestyle of the local gentry. Great shopping and beautiful countryside to marvel at make this town a 'must see' destination.
The Fonts D'Algar is a day out near to Callosa d'En Sarriá. There are many different paths to ramble through and explore, as well as the natural pools, which are supplied by the famous D'Algar waterfall.
