Wonderful and unusual 170-year-old double-bedroom townhouse which has been transformed into a delightful deluxe residence offering boutique-quality facilities whilst retaining all its historic charm.
We, the owners of this award-winning original creation, are fully registered and licensed with the Spanish Tourist Board and are proud to present our latest rental in the heart of the historic centre of Altea: Casa Enfrente.
Our aim was to combine the most interesting and beautiful historic materials of Altea's proud past with the sleek design of efficient, contemporary materials affording all the comfort we take pride in offering our clientele. We think we successfully managed to bridge that gap and can offer each and every guest a pleasurable experience for their stay in Altea.
The house will beguile you with its centenary floor tiles, wooden beams and stone walls , combined with top of the range bathroom and spacious, all-inclusive kitchen, ensuring a delightful visit which will meet your highest expectations. Whether on long or short- term stays, you will feel right at home lounging in the living-room with its wood-burning fireplace or enjoying cocktails alfresco on the elegant and comfortable roof-terrace under the canopy of a sunny or star-studded blue sky.
Situated in a prime location, the house is just a short 6-minute walk from the the modern town centre and beachfront.
For those arriving by car, there is parking close by, or the possibility of renting a garage for 50€ per week
You enter through antique double wooden doors to be greeted by windrose-pattern floor tiles and an Art Deco, stained glass wall feature.
The downstairs double bedroom features a top-of-the-range bed with linen made of white, crisp, high-thread count cotton sheets to offer you a restful and comfortable night's sleep. The windows are double-glazed and the air conditioning and floor heating ensure that the room always remains at the perfect temperature. There are built-in wardrobes to provide ample storage for short or longer stays.
The adjacent modern bathroom consists of an extra large walk-in shower, suspended toilet and luxury hand basin. Fluffy white towels are supplied, as well as separate beach towels and of course a hair dryer.
The first floor, spacious living room boasts a 1920s floor, wood beams and a chimney. This area is perfect for relaxing. There is a book library for your use, a flat screen television with satellite TV and SD photo card reader, and DVD player. Ipods can be connected to the music system. WiFi is available throughout the house.
The modern kitchen on the same level allows you to reach snacks at will or prepare meals to be enjoyed around the dinner table. The kitchen is fully equipped with top of the range appliances including an induction cooker.
Another flight up, the large sun terrace area covers the footprint of the property with inviting, designer seating and dining areas shaded by a large, easy-to-use parasol, for relaxing or eating. There is a separate toilet and wet room, and also an outside kitchen area with BBQ
The large mature plants are all on automatic watering systems and the mood lighting will provide a romantic atmosphere whilst you enjoy the pretty views of the church dome and Altea old town skyline.
The house has its own telephone and guests will be able to receive calls and also make free calls to Spanish land lines.
We are more than happy to arrange airport transfers and any shopping requirements prior to arrival
It is wonderful to be a part of the lively vantage point of the Old Town with its stunning views, even better to be the Jewel in the Crown.
The commercial part of town offers a daily food market, boutiques and a palm-fringed esplanade lined with restaurants and cafes serving a variety of dishes to suit your every taste and whim of the moment.
Altea boasts not just one but two harbours, the picturesque old fishing harbour and the marina with its Club Nautico, which includes an excellent restaurant.
On Tuesdays between 08:30 and 13:00, Altea holds an important street market , and visitors flock from all over the area to purchase fresh, locally grown produce and a variety of artefacts.
Although most of our guests seem more than content to while away the day relaxing and enjoying the easy lifestyle associated with Altea´s old town and beach, there is a multitude of things to do in the surrounding area. Due to Altea´s cultural status (it is home to a Conservatory and a University of Fine Arts) there are many art galleries and antique and craft shops, selling items unique to the area, as well as a contemporary concert hall, the Palau de la Musica.
Along the many sports available ranging from watersports to hiking and climbing, there are also attractions for children and the young at heart. A twenty-minute drive away, you have a choice between the water-themed park Aqualandia, Terra Mitica, the largest amusement park in Spain with thrilling rides based on the five antique civilisations of the Mediterranean area, and the very popular Mundomar Dolphinarium.
For night life, Benidorm is a mere 11 kilometers away.
City life in Alicante (45 mins) and Valencia (1 hr 15 mins) is offset by the stunning Costa Blanca mountain scenery, home to the ancient monastery village of Guadalest.

"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
