First line, Altea, and walking in to town.
Altea, Valencian Country, Spain
Additional Location Information
The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
Welcome to this exhilarating and enchanting part of Spain. This region stretches from Valencia ( the city that invented paella, is home to Formula 1 and Americas Cup racing) in the North to Alicante (a bustling, bright port and holiday city with vibrant night life) in the south.
Along the White Coast of the Costa Blanca you will find some of Spain's most popular beach resorts including Javea, Denia, Moraira, Altea, Benissa and Calpe offering blue flag beaches, excellent sports activities, lovely marinas and fishing ports surrounded by restaurants and bars serving some of the best of Spain's traditional cuisine.
The World Health Organisation has designated the northern Costa Blanca as possessing one of the finest climates found anywhere, and the EU has awarded many of the beaches in the area the prestigious "blue flag" for water quality and cleanliness several years running.
The coastline boasts some of the Spain's finest beaches, as well as pleasant natural features such as La Albufera – a freshwater lake famous for it's bird life, eels, flat bottomed boats and surrounding paella restaurants – and charming towns such as Altea – one of the prettiest little pueblos on the Valencian coastline – as well as the tourist Mecca of Benidorm with it's superb beaches and fantastic nightlife.
Alfaz town centre is a five minute drive from the villa. Everything you might need for your holiday, is available. There are banks where you can be attended in English, Norwegian, German, French and of course Spanish. There are lots shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, hairdessers and beauticians. The local Friday morning market is ideal for clothes, souvenirs and fresh flowers, fruit and vegetables. Also in the centre of Alfaz is the Casa de Cultura (cultural centre) where there are often shows, fiestas etc. The centre is the hub of the town where everyone congregates. Next door to the cultural building is the sports centre with gym and tennis facilities. Whilst Alfaz is a favoured residence for all Europeans due to the climate, and although isvery cosmopolitan, it still retains a very Spanish feel.
Alfaz has a beautiful cobbled beach at the quiet but upmarket town of Albir, which is a ten minute drive away, or a local bus can be taken from the town centre of Alfaz down to Albir. From Albir you can walk along the prom to the harbour and yacht port of the picturesque old Spanish town of Altea where you relax in one of the fabulous sea side cafes. Altea is rightfully known as 'A Jewel in the Valencia Region'. This picturesque town looks out over the sea across one of the most delightful bays on the Mediterranean. Overflowing with history, over the centuries Altea has welcomed (or been conquered by) Iberians, Romans, Moors and Christians, all of whom have contributed to the special culture of these coastal lands. The Old Town, with a walk through the cobbled streets and past the designer boutiques and craft shops up to the 'Domed Church' plaza at the top, should be on everyone's itinerary. In the Plaza the cultural and leisure centre of Añtea is the magnificent Church of the Virgen del Consuelo (Our Lady of Solace). Altea's peacefulness and tranquility have made it a paradise for artists and craftsmen.
The thriving tourist metropolis of Benidorm is only a short fifteen to twenty minutes drive from the villa -with the four great theme parks, Terra Mitica, Terra Natura, Aqualandia and Mundomar, being ideal to keep the family content.
Discover all that´s hidden on the Mediterranean shores. Egypt, Greece,Rome and the The Islands, thousands of years converted into moments of fun emotion and adrenalin. You will find so many rides that you won´t have enough breath to do them all. This is the largest theme park on the coast with excitement for all ages. A spectacular day out that must not be missed!
Experience an exciting journey through one of Europe´s biggest and most fascinating nature parks where you can see over 1,500 animals from all over the world. Then cool off in Terra Natura´s Water Park.
This is the largest water park in Europe. It offers fun and excitement including the famous Kamikaze slide for those dare devils, travel at great speed and enjoy the splash at the end. You can also enjoy a more sedate swim in the lazy river or enjoy one of the many restaurants and bars. Aqualandia offers something for every age group.
A tropical paradise and exotic marine park - including the Dolphin Experience.
