The Costa Blanca / Valencia / Alicante Province region
ALICANTE is the second largest city in the Valencian Region and is situated on the coast and surrounded by mountainous terrain well as beautiful beaches. Alicante town has theatres, cinemas, numerous restaurants, bars, and night-clubs as well as the beautiful promenade along by the marina.
The city is built on two ancient Roman settlements, one of which gives the city its nickname The City of Light. These remains are constantly being discovered during road-building and construction. There is also much remaining evidence, in the form of ruins, culture, and language, of the long occupation by the Moors.
The beautiful fishing port of SANTA POLA is 18kms from Alicante. At night the plaza comes alive as all the locals meet to chat. The resort has 6 beaches, all with golden sand and a fully operational fishing port and sports marina and the Saturday market is a bargain hunter's paradise. Here you will also find the Santa Pola DIVE ACADEMY where you can book a Snorkeling Safari and guests of Casa Bonita receive a 10% discount voucher
BENIDORM is approx 40mins drive north or you can take the train or bus if you do not drive. There are many attractions which include Terra Mitica - one of Europe's finest Theme Parks, Mundomar, Aqualandia Water Park & Terra Nature - something for every member of the family!
RIO SAFARI PARK, located on the Elche - Santa Pola road is a great day out. The park has a wide range of animals on display as well as swimming pools and water slides.
The Alicante / Monte Cid area
EL REBOLLEDO is the nearest town and less than 5 minutes drive from the house. The town has a supermarket, pharmacy, bakery and garage. There are also several bars and restaurants.
How about a visit to the beautiful SANTA BARBARA castle in the morning, a spot of lunch in one of Alicante Old Town's many shady squares, followed by the beach in the afternoon and a leisurely stroll along the promenade and marina in the evening? Sounds tempting? These are just some of the attractions of Alicante itself.
A superb day out, the tiny island of TABARCA, just 10 miles south of Alicante, which Charles III fortified and settled with Genoese prisoners in the 18th century (Italian surnames are still to be found in the churchyard as proof of this!) is situated just a 30 minute ferry ride out to sea from Santa Pola. You can also catch a ferry from Alicante (by the Marina) to Tabarca.
This is also where you can experience a SNORKELING SAFARI with the Santa Pola Dive Academy a great trip for the whole family, no experience necessary. Just book and turn up with your swimming costume, towel & a smile. Guests of Casa Bonita receive a 10% discount voucher
ASPE is a 10 min drive with 3 large modern supermarkets, many shops, bars and restaurants, a daily produce market (meat,fish, fruit & veg) and a twice weekly street market. Ideal for walking in the hills mountain biking and relaxing.

We would like to thank the owners for the great time we had staying at villa Casa Bonita, it was very well equipped and provided all that we needed for days out , picnics etc it was central to all our needs -a real home from home!
The urbanisation has a great community pool ( closed on a Monday and for siesta time, a small weekly cost of around 25 euro for a family of 5 or 3 euro each per day) there is a bar where you can buy tapas, burgers, chips etc. The staff at the pool and bar are very friendly and helpful.
The nearest village is about 5 minutes drive away where you can buy daily essentials or eat out ( mostly Spanish fare ) .
Alicante, Gran Alicant, Murcia are about 15 minutes drive away ( the owners information pack is brilliant and will keep you right about directions, places of interest, supermarkets and where to eat out.
The Villa is central to the surrounding area , Benidorm in the north (25 minutes) with the theme parks,
the salt lakes south and Alicante etc east .
The Urbanisation is slightly secluded so a car is essential for this villa unless you just want to hang out at the pool or play golf at the nearest golf course 20 minutes walk/5minutes drive
This is our 3rd time in 4 years staying in a private villa our first at Casa Bonita and i have to say this has been the best, friendly and most efficient service we have had, from first contact with the owners(e-mail and telephone) to meeting their rep for the key hand over at the villa.
Thank you for your lovely comments it was a pleasure to help arrange your family holiday and am so glad that you had such a great time. I look forward to welcoming you back to Casa Bonita in the future:)

Went away for a weeks climbing holiday Jan 2012, the house was perfect for the 5 of us to explore all of the different climbing spots around Alicante as well as some more areas all over the Costa Blanca.
Great communication with Angela the owner, she was very helpful at all times.
Good that the property wasn't in a big city so it made getting around quick and easy, with the autovia only being 5 mins away.
I'm glad that you all had a great time, it was a pleasure to arrange the booking with you. I'm sorry that you had a couple of electricity cut-outs, a situation we can get in the winter when all the heaters and other electrical appliances are on, all part of the adventure ;) I look forward to welcoming you back to Casa Bonita in the future :)

We really enjoyed our stay in this location. It's in a nice quiet village away from the main tourist areas. I had a bit of trouble finding it though and got there very late. You really need a car as it is a little out of the way. The community bar and pool are great if you don't feel like venturing far and the roof terrace is great for sunbathing. We found we were fairly central for most of the tourist attractions and even managed two day trips to Benidorm and a fantastic snorkelling excursion to Tabarca Island. Alicante is just a stones throw away, once you get used to the roads. I wasn't very good with directions! The house had great facilities including a washing machine , two bathrooms and pleanty of bedroom and cupboard space which is great for a family. The kitchen space is a little small if you are catering for a family but we managed OK, as we couldn't afford to eat out that often. I thought the provision of a cold bag for picnics was a great additional touch as we used this for most of our excursions. The children also enjoyed playing chess and we watched some DVDs and TV. A real home from home. Thanks also to Nick and Sue who rescued me very late at night, helped me sort out my mobile phone and showed me where the local supermarket was. So good, we have already booked again for next year.
Thank you for your lovely review I'm so pleased you and your family had such a great time. Thank you also for your booking for next year, I'm looking forward to welcoming you all back :-)
