The area and getting around
A charming destination between Calpe and Benidorm
Located in the province of Alicante, between Calpe, Benisa and Benidorm (see our holiday rental and letting in Benidorm for more), Altea is a charming town of 23,500 inhabitants that constitutes one of the favourite destinations of all Costa Blanca, both for national and international tourism. Its attractiveness is such that its population has multiplied almost fivefold since the 1960s. It is a place of refuge for artists such as Rafael Alberti, Vicente Blasco Ibañez, Sergio Salma or Josh Rouse. The charm of its architecture and its streets are joined by the beauty of its more than 6 km coastline alternating with cliffs and small coves, with stretches of flat beaches. What are you waiting for to book a holiday rental in Altea and get to know everything first hand?
One of the most beautiful towns on the Costa Blanca
Among the steep and narrow streets of the old quarter of Altea, the white colour of its farmhouse stands out, which is perched around a hill that crowns the church of Nuestra Señora del Consuelo. The white colour is only interrupted on certain occasions by the seeing and fuchsia of the plants and bougainvilleas that hang from the balconies. Its streets slowly descend towards the sea, where you will find the fishing port, the marina and the promenade, full of shops, cafes and summer terraces. Everything you need to have a great time while staying in affordable holiday lettings in Altea to rent. Another picturesque Costa Blanca town is Moraira and is only a 20 minute drive from Altea. If you want to wander the streets and then relax in peace and quiet, you can rent a holiday rental and letting in Moraira.
Now that I booked a holiday rental in Altea, what should I do?
Altea for lovers of sun and beach tourism
The beaches of Altea stretch for 8 km, alternating beaches, coves and cliffs. Many of them have been awarded the Blue Flag, which certifies the quality of their waters and the services they are equipped with, and you can even find holiday rentals in Altea with a sea view. But, without a doubt, the most outstanding are Mascarat, Barreta and Solcida. However, if you go with children, the most recommendable are those of Arenal Bol and Fossa, in the town of Calpe. If you are looking for another destination with beautiful beaches, you can travel to Benidorm, which is 15 minutes away and make it a day trip or a weekend getaway if you rent an apartment in Benidorm.
Altea for active tourism enthusiasts
In the vicinity of Altea is the Sierra de Bernia y Ferrer, belonging to the municipality of Xalo. There you can enjoy a wide range of hiking and cycling routes. It is worth making an excursion just to be able to contemplate the magnificent views of the coast, from Calpe and the Peñon de Ifach to Benidorm (you can even rent a villa in Benidorm to come and relax). But if the mountain doesn't convince you, you can opt for water sports such as sailing or diving. These are the options that the holiday lettings in Altea offer.
Did you know that the Orthodox church of Altea was the first temple of its kind built in Spain? A replica of the same church built in Russia in the 17th century.
