The Valenciana region
The village of Polop is located inland in the Costa Blanca North in an area known as the Marina Alta. The local economy is based mainly on agriculture. The village is a delight to explore and perfect for a morning or afternoon ramble. The hill, where the old castle was situated is encircled by a medieval wall, and is a 'must' to walk up. Follow the Stations of the Cross to the castle remains and you'll be well rewarded with some fabulous views before you enjoy a cool drink at the café bar at the top. There you will marvel at spectacular views to Calpe, Albir and Altea on the coast and inland to Callosa and the Sierra Bernia Mountains. The area is dominated by the Leon Dormido - the Sleeping Lion mountain which lies behind Polop.
Places of interest and ideas of things to do in Polop
• Village Centre: take a wander around the picturesque old streets and charming church.
• Castle: walk up the hill to the old castle for some spectacular views.
• Market: Wednesday morning.
Quiet of Polop or hustle & bustle of the coast
• Polop can easily be combined with the nearby resort of Benidorm. It provides a perfect contrast to the busy, commercial beaches of Benidorm. So spend the morning exploring the village of Polop then head to one of the many nearby award winning beaches for an afternoon of sun, sea and sand!
• Spend a day exploring the nearby historic mountain top village of Guadalest. Here you will have panoramic views of the coast and mountains and can enjoy a boat trip on the turquoise waters of the lake.
• If you don't fancy cooking much you can enjoy a meal in Polop. There are many bars and cafes to choose from offering traditional Spanish and International cuisine. Then maybe head to the nearby water falls known as Fonts del Algar for a day splashing around in the crystal clear mountain waters and plunge pool.
15th to the 18th of August and the Patron Saint Fiesta around the 4th till 7th of October.
Local attractions are The stunning country side, walking, climbing, painting photography & of course the beaches and attractions of the local theme parks Terra Mittica, Terra Natura, Mundomar and of course the award winning beaches where water sports are available all along the coast.

"Nice to be in centre of genuine Spanish town."
Picked this apartment because it was away from the centre of Benidorm and wanted to stay in a smaller Spanish town. This turned out to be an excellent and wise decision. The apartment is at the top of a traditional building in the centre of town but has been very well modernised and has everything one expects for a relaxing stay. The piece de resistance is the outside terrace where the views are spectacular of the surrounding hills across the rooftops of the town.
A short walk down the hill brings you right into the town square where there are several bars all of which offer a friendly welcome. The apartment owners are extremely helpful and give plenty of advice on what to see locally.
This apartment can be recommended for anyone wanting to experience something different to the hustle and bustle of Benidorm, yet even that can be reached in under half an hour. The only thing to be aware of is the fact that there is no lift to the apartment so possibly not suitable for anyone with physical limitations; however, the views are worth the short climb for anyone else!

"A beautiful apartment with breathtaking views"
We loved this apartment. It is located in the centre of the beautiful, unspoiled Spanish village of Polop and is close to all amenities yet is set back far enough to be very peaceful and relaxing. The apartment was pristine and the cleanliness was faultless. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and we spent many a happy hour sipping wine and nibbling tapas in the fresh air and sunshine. Within a couple of minutes you can walk down to the square where there are a number of bars and restaurants to choose from. We tried them all whilst we were there and received a friendly welcome in every one. The famous resort of Benidorm is only about 20 minutes away and is a complete contrast to the gentle, relaxed pace of Polop.

I rented this apartment for a short stay near Benidorm with my family (including 2 kids, 2 and 4 years old). It was a great choice! Polop town is beautiful, with breath-taking views, beautiful architecture, relaxing place yet close enough to many other towns in the area with different attractions. The attic is fantastic, renovated beautifully yet keeping the essence of a historical building. Very well taken care of, clean, and with everything we needed. The balcony was a plus, from which we could enjoy even more the view. Bill was extremely friendly and flexible, and the kids loved the Easter eggs he left for them :).
I would highly recommend it to anyone (except people with disability, or family with very young kids as there is no elevator, but my kids loved the stairs!), much better than staying in the busy Benidorm (to my taste), still close enough you can visit it, but staying here will feel like a real vacation!.
