The Costa Blanca / Valencia / Alicante Province region
The province of Alicante, Costa Blanca on the east coast of Spain has reputedly one of the healthiest climates in the world with more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Winter daytime temperatures seldom fall below 10ºC and can in fact be high enough for sunbathing. At the height of summer average temperatures are around 30ºC but they can reach 40ºC in the middle of the afternoon!
To the north, the province includes the popular resorts of Gandia, Javea and Denia and to the south it extends to the development of Torrevieja. Around here marks the beginning of the Costa Calida.
A number of smallish resorts such as Moraira, Altea and Calpe are particularly popular with tourists. In contrast the high rise resort of Benidorm attracts some 5 million foreign and national tourists every year, the vast majority British.
Until the 1960s Benidorm was a sleepy fishing village, yet today in Europe only London and Milan have more skyscrapers than this mega resort.
The Altea / Altea Hills area
A very short drive or brisk walk downhill brings you to the SH Altea Hills Resort and Salux Hills Spa with its four outdoor lagoon pools (plus one heated indoor), restaurant, café, tennis courts, health and beauty centre, set within a spectacular tropical setting. All of these facilities are available for either residents or guests staying in Altea Hills (charges may apply).
To keep the kids happy (and adults too!) there are plenty of theme parks. Terra Mitica Amusement Park and Rides, Mundomar Marine Animal Park, Terra Natura Wildlife Park and Aqua Natura Water Park are all near Benidorm (only 20 mins away). There are also two safari parks (Vergel and Aitana) in the Alicante area.
The area boasts many award winning 'blue flag' beaches a short drive away (awarded for their clear water). The lovely stretches at Altea and Calpe are particularly noteworthy. Calpe is only 9km away and is ideal for families as it has a long sandy beach and children's play areas.
Other attractions nearby include Altea old town (4km away), wine tasting at Jalon and the waterfalls at Fonts de Algar. Breathtaking views at Guadalest village, ‘hanging’ castle and lake are just 25 min away. The towns of Denia and Javea are also well worth exploring.
The stunning old town of Altea, with its narrow cobbled streets, has designer boutiques, art shops and a magnificent blue domed Church. In front of the church lies a beautiful plaza lined with restaurants and cafe/bars.
The large market that takes place on the seafront promenade of Altea each Tuesday is one of the biggest of its kind on the Costa Blanca.
This is an ideal location for walkers, cyclists and sports enthusiasts. Behind the apartment sits the Sierra Bernia mountain chain which offers beautiful hiking paths and old remains of the Moorish times. The back-country of Altea offers bikers and hikers endless options. There are two water sports centres serving Altea. Both offer diving (PADI), windsurfing, fishing, boat cruises and sailing. The Luis Campomanes Marina (the port of Altea) is only 5 mins away and is also home to many impressive yachts and cruisers, bars and restaurants.
There are 8 superb golf courses within half an hour of the apartments and many more within a 1 hour drive. The Don Cayo course (5 mins away) is a 9 hole course with spectacular views along the coast. Further afield there is a selection of 18 hole courses - including the challenging championship Nicklaus designed course at Villaitana, Benidorm (one par 72 championship and one par 62), the Olazabal designed La Sella course (near Javea), and the Ballesteros designed course at Oliva Nova (near Denia). There are also 9 hole courses at Benissa (Ifach) and Javea. It is always advisable to book tee times.

Found this on Coasta Blanca Direct web-site and it certainly met up to the luxury description!
The location & views are stunning in Altea Hills, everywhere in the estate very clean. Three good sized bedrooms & all the amenities you would require. Little things like "Sky" that works to free wi-fi excellent coverage help.
We took the AVE train from Valencia to Madrid, had fantastic time, but was great to come
back to our Penthouse.
Excellent places to visit like Denia, Altea Old Town, Alicante Castle & Benidorm
10/10 for this accommodation & location!

The appartment is probably the best I have stayed in. I can only describe it as a show home: the decor and furnishings are beautiful. The sofas both in the appartment and on the terrace were so comfortable; something that doesn't occur very often! There were lots of 'nice' touches such as hand soap in the bathrooms; dishwasher tablets and washing machine powder in the kitchen/utility room. All my dealings with the owner Ed were simple and straightforward. His manager Barry was extremely helpful and I am sure had we had any problems, which we didn't, he would have have been on hand! Although we went to Altea at the height of the season the appartment 'complex' was extremely quiet as was the pool area. Altea Hills is in a superb area and is close to obviously Altea as well as Calpe and Benidorm. When we next visit this part of Altea which we certainly will I will definitely be asking Ed if I might borrow his appartment again! This guide suggests I should write what I liked least. The only thing I didn't like was having to leave as it was a perfect holiday.
