THE AREA

Altea is the cultural capital of the Valencia region. It has long been famous for attracting many types of artists and craftsmen who show and sell their arts and crafts in some of the finest galleries, shops and boutiques reflecting the upmarket status of the area. Altea is often referred to as the “Pearl of the Mediterranean”. In the old quarter you will find quiet bars and excellent restaurants offering very good value-fo-money international cuisine in a relaxing and “old world charm” atmosphere. Altea is designated as a marine resort, and at the same time remains a working town, not totally dependent on tourism and remains open all the year round. A small fishing port and a weekly market on Tuesdays.

LOCAL AMENITIES

The delightful village of Altea la Vella with its dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Bernia mountains is only 2 km away. It has typical old Spanish charm with quaint narrow streets lined with cottages leading up to the village church. Small local shops provide a wide range of facilities which include a well stocked supermarket, with butchery, delicatessen, bakery, and wines. A bank with ATM, two international newsagents, two bakers, greengrocer, pharmacy, patisseries and some very fine restaurants. On the outskirts of the village is the well respected 9 hole Don Cayo Golf Course which boasts the longest Par 5 in Europe.

INTERESTS

The nearest beach is less than a 10 minute drive away, and you can choose between small beaches in small coves or the larger beaches of Albir or Calpe with their easy and free parking.

Terra Mitica, the water theme park or Terra Natura the animal and natural history theme park, are only a 20 minute drive away.

The area has a rich variety of excellent restaurants serving food of all different culters. From the local fish restaurants lining the quaysides of Calpe and Altea to the Internationally recognised gastronomiques within both the towns and foothill locations.

A must do visit is to El Castell de Guadalest, the fortified historic village which can only be approached through a tunnel in the mountainside. Its history and buildings date back to the time of the Moors, and the views are to die for. A truely wonderful day for the whole family.

The area has a great attraction to cyclist both local and international because of its high quality road surfaces, fine views and challenging climbs. Bicycles can also be hired for trips around the flat sea shore promenades and along special cycle lanes for inter town rides.
