Me and my wife Stayed in this amazing house for 3 weeks! The house is newly renovated and is provided with all amenities you can Dream off. The most amazing part of the house is the location in the old town of Altea. You have Everything just around the corner. The beach is just a short walk away (5 Min) We can highly recommend this house and would like to send a big thank you to Sue and Pete for all your support during our stay. Would we like to go back? YES!!!
Thank you for your 100% positive review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in the house and it was especially nice to know that you appreciated not only your evenings dining and relaxing on the roof terrace, but also sunbathing and making use of all the facilities including the shower to cool down. It was great that we were able to accommodate the extra members of your family with the additional beds. You were lovely guests and thank you again for taking such good care of the house. We look forward to welcoming you again.

Sue and Pete could not have been nicer. Sue picked us up from the airport and was very friendly and chatty. The apartment in the centre of the old town was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The roof terrace was a great space to sit and sunbathe and it was well furnished with a table and chairs for alfresco dining and also sun beds for a spot of sunabthing. The location of the apartment was excellent, being surrounded with quality restaurants and a short stroll to the church and square where you could sit and indulge in a bit of people watching.
Thank you both for your lovely review and we are happy that you enjoyed the house and wonderful terrace so much. We are lucky to have one of the largest and best roof terraces in the old town and we have tried hard to provide our guests with every possible comfort there. Outside kitchen and wet room for cooling off when sunbathing, coupled with designer furniture. A magical place. You were wonderful guests and we hope to see you again in the future.

"Modern luxuries in historic Spain"
An exceptional holiday experience combining a taste of historic Spain with sophisticated modern luxuries. Perfect for two whether you want to spend your day on the sun soaked roof terrace and your evenings enjoying a romantic BBQ whilst only seconds away from small restaurants and bars. A world of its own. We visited in November and enjoyed breakfast and lunch outside and on cooler evenings spent cosy evenings cooking up a storm in the exceptional kitchen and then relaxing on comfortable furniture in front of the log burner. Quaint narrow streets and uphill climbs up many steps, manoeuvring the hire car into parking spaces add to the ambience. You have to give it a try but please check with us and do not book it when we next want to visit! Exceptionally clean, well maintained and exactly as the photographs. Sue and Pete, thank you for a pleasurable experience from initial contact.

"A little piece of heaven"
A little piece of heaven – we have just returned from a wonderful week at this delightful townhouse. The townhouse is beautifully appointed with everything you could need for a truly relaxing break. Whether you are enjoying a glass of wine on the roof terrace watching the world go by or chilling out in the living room area – it is a really fabulous place to stay. The kitchen is superbly equipped, not that you really need it as you are next to the wonderful square with its bustling cafes, restaurants and tapas bars. The beach is a 5 minute walk away where you have another whole array of choices for eating and drinking. I always write balanced reviews and give the good, bad & ugly but I really cannot find a downside to this property, location or its friendly and extremely helpful owners. We will be back again and we have no hesitation recommending this townhouse to other travellers (just maybe not to too many until we have our next visit booked!)
Thank you for your fabulous review. You were also fabulous guests!! I particularly enjoyed our conversations together. When you booked with us you were very clear that you were looking for a relaxing and chilled holiday, I am so happy that we were able to provide that for you. Its great that you will be returning, see you later in the year!

"Fantastique maison luxueuse dans la vieille ville."
Un grand merci à Sue et à Peter pour l'accueil fantastique qu'ils réservent à leurs hôtes dans leurs magnifiques maisons de ce si beau village d'Altea. S'il y a un endroit où séjourner dans la vieille ville, c'est incontestablement dans l'une de leurs luxueuses maisons, qui sont décorées avec un gout exquis, et où rien n'est laissé au hasard. Tout est là pour votre bien être. La maison où nous avons séjourné cette fois-ci est un véritable joyaux ( c'est notre deuxième séjour), la terrasse est juste fantastique et nous avons pu y déjeuner en janvier. Je vous souhaite vraiment de pouvoir découvrir ces merveilles. Quant à nous, nous ne pensons qu'à y retourner. Je vous recommande vivement ces deux maisons qui sont franchement fantastiques. Dominique Marcombe, Paris, France.
Le plus grand plaisir de la location est de decouvrir qu'un client est devenu un bon ami. Merci pour votre belle revu et pour l'amitie. Vous revoir bientot
