Altea Holiday rentals: Your Spanish home from home
Altea, a quaint and charming town is the perfect spot for a relaxing a cultural break. Situated on the Costa Blanca, Altea offers plenty of blue skies and sunshine, as well as long stretches of palm-tree lined beaches. One of the biggest draws to Altea and a major benefit to staying in an Altea holiday home, is the characteristic old town. Typical to many other Spanish “barrios”; the old town in Altea is made up of narrow cobbled streets, white-washed homes covered in bright flowers and plenty of spaces to eat outside in the warm air. The old town is situated slightly higher than the main beach front, meaning that the fantastic views of the Mediterranean can be seen from numerous points. Stroll through the beautiful old town, stop at the local cafés and art galleries and visit the church of Nuestra Senora del Consuelo – easily identifiable by the typical blue and white tiled domes.
Altea & the Costa Blanca
Walk along the promenade, with a wide range of bars and restaurants on offer. Whilst here, treat yourself to some local Spanish delicacies. Paella, fresh seafood, sangria and churros are all available here for you to enjoy. As Altea is located along the Costa Blanca, it is easily accessible by car or tram – the tram line itself stretches from Alicante to Calpe, with Villajoyosa and Benidorm in between. Approximately 25 minutes from Altea by car lies the beautiful natural waterfalls in the town of Callosa d'en Sarria. Spend the day here swimming in the naturally crystal clear water and exploring the various falls. Wherever your Altea accommodation is located, this charming area will leave you wanting to keep coming back.
