About the property

Front line stunning apartment in the heart of Altea town

Best of both worlds... our apartment offers fantastic views over the Med and the chance to experience the traditional Spanish town of Altea.

This stunning sunny sea front apartment is situated in a traditional apartment block in the select area of Altea. There are many high spec residential developments surrounding Altea but none offer this extremely convenient location in the heart of Altea (you really don't need a car!) and the closeness to the sea (less than a stones throw!). There is everything you need in this home from home environment, which is suitable for young people, families and the older person whether for holidays or long term stays (over winter). Only a 30 second stroll from your front door into the beautiful Altea town, which retains it's charm and character, yet at the same time supplying a myriad of restaurants, cafes and shops of all types and prices for the international clientele.

We can even offer transfers to and from the airport if required.

Altea: Because of its privileged location and brightness, ‘a village roasted by the sun’, according to Gabriel Miro; Altea has always attracted many bohemians. Artists, painters, sculptors and writers of many nationalities have been drawn to the town, making their home here and benefiting from the inspiration they receive from its unique setting. They in turn, have contributed to its rich cultural life, and the official title, ‘Cultural Capital of the Valencia Region’, has been bestowed on Altea. The University of Culture and Fine Arts is adjacent to the old town, and now attracts a whole new generation of artists. The University has a Theatre of Performing Arts, where distinguished ensembles appear regularly. Details of forthcoming events are available from the University. In support of its mantle as Cultural Capital, Altea is also a town with a special taste for antiques and hand-crafted goods.

Leisure Activities: Whether you want a quiet holiday or a fun-packed one there is something for everyone in and around Altea - the Disney Style Terra Mitica theme park at Benidorm (just 30 minutes away by car), Aqualandia Water Park, and the Mundomar Exotic Animal and Marine Park. There are Safari Parks at Aitana and Vergel, Waterfalls at Bolulla, Caves at Benidoleig and Canalobre. For superb international shows with dinner the renowned Benidorm Palace and the Casino Mediterráneo at Villajoyosa are not to be missed. All along the Altea coast there are excellent Water Sports facilities - including Snorkelling and Scuba Diving, Boating, Wind Surfing, Water Skiing and Fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As a tabloid journo I have to be a

man of few words, so I'll just say It ticks all the boxes and make special

mention of Diane's very positive 'customer relations'. My wife and I would

like to go back in late Autumn but it is already booked, which says it all

Fantastic sea front apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful appartment on the sea front, lovely furnishings throughout,. Everything you need and more in the apartment , great choice of resturants and bars, lovely shops, and a visit to the old town of Altea is a must. The host Diane has been so helpful she even organised our transfer for us. I would recommend the apartment to anyone and we defiantly be returning next year.

Thank you so much we all had such a lovely time, staying in your appartment made it even more special. 👏👏👏

Peaceful Altea

  • 4 of 5

Altea is a wonderful place to visit -if you are looking for a relaxing stay with plenty of options for visiting other places by bus or the train.

The apartment has everything you could need and has plenty of space. Diane was helpful and easily contactable- while we were there one of the showers was out of action which was a nuisance for 5 girls! It was fixed during our stay however.

The only problem we had were the beds which we found to be very hard and I personally thought they were uncomfortable.

Overall a lovely place to visit but no siestas or lie ins!

Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment. Clean and well stocked. Centrally located opposite the beach. Altea is a lovely resort which has a wonderful selection of bars, restaurants and cafes. Shops are good too. Nice sea front. A good family resort too. Easy travel to neighbouring towns such as Calpe and Benidorm by bus or train which are accessed within metres of the apartment block. Wouldn't hesitate using the apartment again. Fabulous!

Lovely apartment in fantastic location in Altea

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in this lovely apartment. The view is a beautiful as the pictures show and the location on the promenade is terrific for walking and dining and it's a quick walk up to the Old Town as well.

Kitchen is well equipped; lots of hot water and new appliances. Bedrooms are quiet.

Excellent welcome and correspondence with Margaret and Diane. The internet went off early on and they both responded quickly and effectively. We had a car and found parking in the nearby Tram station was always available and free (in January/February).

Highly recommend this lovely apartment
