About this location

The Valenciana region

Altea is located on Spain's "White Coast" in the Spanish region of Valencia. Together with its neighbour Albir, Altea is without doubt one of the most charming towns to be found in the Costa Blanca. If you want all night discos and the bright city lights on your holiday, give these towns a miss!! Altea is a holiday haven for the more discerning tourist who will be enthralled by its medieval cobbled streets, its picture book old quarter and the delightful palm-fringed seafront esplanade.

As you approach Altea you will see one of the Costa Blanca's most distinctive landmarks - the blue-domed parish church of the Virgin del Consuelo with its magnificent dome of blue and white glazed ceramic tiles. Make a trip up to the church, through the narrow streets of the old quarter. Wind your way up through the cobbled lanes until you come to the plaza at the top of the hill where you'll find the church and the fabulous panoramic views of Altea bay.

Altea is situated on a hill whose peak rises above the white-tiled parish church. The magnificently jumbled and cluttered centre of the Old Town provides Altea with a special charm. At the foot of the hill lies the wide sea promenade and the commercial street, the Avenida del Rey Jaime I. L'Olla is another much-frequented beach opposite a small island of the same name. In earlier times, Altea used to be situated on the road to the Sierra de Bernia and was called Altea la Vella - a small village intersected by a Way of the Cross that ascends to a Calvary surrounded by cypress trees. The Sierra de Bernia, with its Font del Garroferet and ancient fortress, are excellent reasons to visit the area.

It is not difficult to understand why Altea became a Bohemian centre for musicians, artists and writers from all over Europe when they first discovered its delights back in the late 1950's. Although the town has since adapted to meet the demands of the modern day tourist it still retains its "Bohemian air". You'll find a plethora of tiny shops offering wonderful local crafts, paintings and gifts. There are also numerous excellent restaurants where you can enjoy both local and international cuisine.

Villa Gadea

If you never set foot outside Altea during your holiday you won't run short of sights to see, places to visit and things to do. And if you're keen to venture further afield, the Costa Blanca and its hinterland offers a wealth of major attractions - both natural and man made - within easy reach.

Altea's peacefulness and tranquillity have made it a paradise for artists and craftsmen and their shops and stalls are scattered throughout the Old Town Centre. Start by exploring the town itself. Set off from the Plaza del Convento and follow the Pont de Moncau which leads you to the Vellaguarda. From here you'll wend your way through the narrow medieval cobble-stoned streets with balconies and small glorietas (circular intersections), which wind steadily upwards to the plaza in the old quarter. Make the blue-domed parish church of the Virgin del Consuelo (Our Lady of Solace) your goal. But be prepared for many distractions along the way. The streets themselves are a delight with their whitewashed buildings adorned with jasmine and geraniums. Private homes, shops and restaurants sit comfortably side by side in a jumble of buildings which are full of character with their intricately carved wooden doors, balconies and metal grilles.

Take your time. Partly because the climb to the top through these stepped and cobbled streets is quite demanding. But mostly because you'll want to stop and explore the many gifts shops, art and craft galleries and tempting back streets along the way.

At the top you'll be rewarded with a magnificent view over Altea Bay with the Sierra Bernia mountain range providing an impressive backdrop. Make sure you've got your camera or camcorder with you!

Stop here for a drink or a meal in one of the bars and restaurants which circle the cobbled plaza. It's a perfect place to sit and relax - never too noisy and never too "touristy".

Visit the Virgin del Consuelo (Our Lady of Solace) church - built at the turn of the century and quite as elaborate inside as out. Its slender bell tower and huge blue dome beautifully decorated with blue and white glazed ceramic tiles make it one of the Costa Blanca's major milestones (a postcard favourite!).

Enjoy the town's many wonderful restaurants during your stay - you'll find top quality local and international cuisine at very reasonable prices. And in the summer months, the cobbled streets of the old quarter with their street terraces are a perfect place to people watch while you eat.

For pioneers of all things culinary, there are some unusual local Valencian specialities including caragols amb çeba (snails with onion), cruet de peix (fish stew), sea-urchins, coca a la lluma (a kind of pasty) and a wide variety of rice dishes.

Visit the town's museum, Museo Navarro Ramon, its Casa de Cultura (cultural centre) and its magnificent new arts and music centre, the Palau de las Artes. Ask at the tourist information centre, , for details of exhibitions, cultural activities and entertainment on offer during your stay. The seafront promenade is also the venue for Altea's famous Tuesday market.

"Definitely, we will be coming back soon..."

We stayed in this beautiful penthouse apartment for 3 weeks during Xmas and New year festive holidays.
This was definitely our best holiday for years. The apartment is located within a prestigious resort, close to sea. With its relaxing and artistic atmosphere, luxurious furniture and equipment, which gives very warm, comfortable and homely environment , you must love it! Everything was in perfect order. Unforgettable views of the sea and mountains at the same time either from the rooms or terraces makes everyone to feel free, inspired and happy. We couldn't stop watching the sun set over the bay and mountains every evening. Hopefully in summer we will be again there to enjoy outdoor jacuzzi , swimming pools, beautiful gardens and private beach.

"Absolutely Amazing"

I have been renting this property twice and intend to comeback on many multiple occasions. The property is amazing, suited for 6 people. Got everything! Super luxury.
It's part of a beautiful complex called Villa Gadea which has its own entrance, security, garage space, community pools for each couple of buildings. The beach is 100 m away. the view from the property is breathtaking. I absolutely recommend renting this property and spending time in Altea!

"amazing apartment and holiday in Altea"

Luxury penthouse apartment. Bright Fabulously presented with nice linen and towels. Apartment found in spotlessly clean condition. Spectacular views across the Altea Bay all the way to Albir and further. The views from the balcony or from the top sun terrace from the early morning to the late night with most amazing sunset. Set in a lovely location just a short stroll through the gardens to the beach. Apartment equipped with all that we needed. We would highly recommend this apartment and the town of Altea, there is a gorgeous promenade with bars & restaurants, the culture & romance of the old town is just to admire. Best food & wine, at very reasonable prices. A perfect base for travelling around the Costa Blanca and we will most certainly be returning as well as recommending it to friends and family
