About the home
My two-bedroom Spanish holiday apartment is located in a lovely area of the Costa Blanca, within easy reach of both Alicante and Murcia airports. The apartment is in well maintained gated community. The Fontana development is located on the edge of the small Spanish town of Algorfa , and is next to open countryside, including orange and lemon groves. The apartment is in an elevated position, with good views over the surrounding area, nearby mountains and the countryside.
The Fontana Algorfa development comprises four sets of apartments around a communal pool and landscaped walkways. Entry is by wrought iron gates or secure underground car park (with your own dedicated space), with lifts serving the three floors above ground level. My apartment is an “Atico” on the top floor. It has a private balcony with good views and a spiral staircase up to a private roof solarium which, of course, is a sun trap.

Further details outdoors:
There is a secure underground car park accessed via an electronic key. Alternatively there is plenty of free parking on the roads around Fontana 1. The apartment complex is next to orange and lemon groves and a road leading up to La Finca Golf course, so the area is very countryfied. There are a number of restaurants and bars a short walk away. Also banks and a small English owned Supermarket. The village also contains a bakery, Bank, internet cafe and many other shops. There is a lift to all floors. There are 5 golf courses nearby, with La Finca right on your doorstep.
There is a changeover charge per booking so that the apartment can be prepared by our local representatives for the next visitors. You will be asked to pay 50 Euros on arrival for up to one week in the apartment, and 60 Euros for longer stays. You will be asked to pay a non-returnable deposit to secure your booking, with the balance for the rental charge paid by cheque or PayPal one month before your holiday. We work with other owners on the same complex and in the event of any date clashes, unexpected maintenance work etc we reserve the right to give you an identical apartment on the same complex should this be necessary (it rarely is)
You will be emailed instructions and directions and you will pick up key on site at the apartment complex where our local representative is based. We try to be flexible about arrival and departure times, but in busy periods when there is a same day changeover we ask you to vacate by 10am and arrive at the apartment at 4pm. If you wish to arrive earlier it is always possible to store luggage securely on site and use the facilities, like the pool, while you wait for your accommodation to be made ready.
The Costa Blanca / Valencia / Alicante Province region
With 320 sunny days a year, the Costa Blanca is one of the best bets for sun all year round. The stretch of coastline between Alicante and Mucia boast some of the best beaches in Spain, with our nearest beach, Guardama, always ranked amongst the best. The sand dunes behind the beach are a protected area. Bustling Alicante will satisfy those who like historic cites and shopping, while there is a huge outdoor market every Sunday about two miles away. There are some lovely day trips to be had - to Elche/Elx, which has its famous palms and botanical gardens and zoo, to the island of Pola where you can snorkel amongst fish and reef, and to nearby Torrevieja where there are shops and two water parks.
The Algorfa / Algorfa Village area
You could find all you want in Alforga, with a range of local bars, cafes and restaurants -- as well as shops and internet cafes. There is a market every weekend in this typically Spanish village, with a quaint village square and light traffic. Further afield (but not too far) there are some great restaurants at San Miguel (yes, and drink the beer!) and Almoradi. Plenty of golf courses nearby, a large municipal swimming pool, tennis courts and a huge lake at San Miguel for those who like catching carp and barbel.

Algorfa is 40 minutes drive from Alicante or Murcia airports. Both airports are well served by many low cost airlines. You may arrive and leave on any day of the week (subject to availability of course), so you can take advantage of the cheaper flights. You may also stay for any number of days you would like. There are numerous good value car hire companies which allow you to pick up and drop off at either of these airports. We recommend that you get an online quote from Holiday Autos. Spanish roads are easy to navigate and traffic levels are generally lower than in the UK . We will provide you with directions to the apartment on booking.

There is a modest cleaning/turnaround charge per booking so that the apartment can be prepared by our local representatives for the next visitors. You will be asked to pay 50 Euros on arrival for up to one week's stay and 60 Euros for longer stays. Electricity usage in the apartment is charged as follows. For each rental week 15 euros of electricity credit is provided on the meter, which is adequate for most people. If you choose to use more electricity - either because you use the air con more than average or the blown air heating in the winter more than average then you will buy extra 5 and 10 euro meter cards from my local on site rep, Veronica.Book
