Location description from owner

The Valencian Country region

The Costa Blanca area is a fabulous place to holiday or even take a short or long weekend break as the climate here is good all year round with very hot and sunny summers.

Gran Alacant lies just 10 min's form Alicante Airport and 50 mins from Murcia Airport. It is very easy to get to and within easy reach of the main towns of Alicante, Torrevieja and Benidorm.

Alicante has a historical yet cosmopolitan feel with a lovely beach, harbour and promenade with some fantastic bars and restaurants. Here you can find Santa Barbara castle, which is well worth a visit, or spend the day going around the large selection of shops.

Just 5km's away is the traditional Spanish resort of Santa Pola with its long stretches of beautiful sandy beaches and harbour with its lively fishing industry. Fresh fish can be found all over the town's restaurants. There is a coastal road from Gran Alacant to Santa Pola where you will find numerous private spots that are great for fishing.
There are two markets every week here but the Saturday market is great for bargain hunters.

From here you can take an outing to the nearby natural park of Las Salinas and discover the beauty of the salt lakes where you can often see the Flamingos.
There is excellent walking near the Santa Pola lighthouse whose light can be seen most evenings from Gran Alacant.

You can take a boat ride to the lovely island of Tabarca where you will find bars and excellent restaurants. As is to be expected, the most popular and best prepared fish dishes can be eaten here. Short journeys are done on a frequent timetable, depending on the season, and the trip only takes 60 minutes from Alicante and 30 from Santa Pola.

Benidorm is approx 1 hour away and is well known for its lively night-life, theme parks (Terra Mitica, Terra Natural, Aqualandia (Spain's largest water park) and the Mundo Mar marina animal park) and not to mention Benidorm Zoo. Here you will find excursions such as horse riding, a hot air balloon ride, jeep safari and even a day trip to Ibiza and is great for lovers of water sports.

There are a number of championship golf courses within a short drive including the Bonalba golf resort and spa. Only 10 min's away is the nearest 9 hole course.

You can also take a drive up to visit Javea and Denia. Both of these beatuiful and clean towns are well worth visiting for their traditional mountain settings, beautiful beaches and harbour's.

Gran Alacant

Gran Alacant is a small urbanisation 10 min's from Alicante Airport and is ideal for families and those wanting a relaxing and enjoyable break .

Beautiful Carabassi beach is 15 minutes walk or a 3 minute drive away and is one of the most beautiful and safest beaches within the Costa Blanca coastline.

In the local area there is an excellent selection of local and international restaurants, bars, shops,banks and supermarkets including a 24 hour shop and an excellent winery and Internet shops.

There is so much to see and do, from golf, tennis, snorkelling and other water sports, to exploration of the historical sites of the neighbouring towns, a nearby safari park and shopping plaza.

There are also a selection of markets within easy reach and only a bus ride away. Gran Alacant Market is every Thursday and only mins walking distance from the house. Here you can buy local fresh fruit & veg for cheap prices.

There is a lovely nature reserve, which is popular for bird watchers, and where many species can be seen at all times of the year. It has BBQ areas which are ideal for peaceful picnics as well as close access to bars and restaurants at the bottom of the hill. All interconnected by an excellent bus service and the Gran Alacant tourist train.

“delightful holiday home from home”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2015

Fabulous accommodation with all the amenities you could require nearby. Excellent information sent before the holiday and lots within the property. Beach nearby with plenty of transport around to get you back up the hill after a day there. 2 of our party found it a great place to use as a base for their mountain trekking. Lots of local bars and excellent eateries for the younger members of our party. And i could just chill in peace and sunshine. Will definitely be going again

Owner's reply: Thank you kindly for your review. We are pleased you had a relaxing holiday and that all guests found the house suitable for their needs. It is nice to know that you found the information useful too. We would love to welcome you back anytime. Thank you

“Winter break”

Reviewed 26 Feb 2015

Just returned from a lovely break at Casa Helgar, The house is situated ideally for all the local amenities, but is far enough so you don't get bothered by any rowdies. It's clean and well equipped and has everything you would need for a holiday.

Owner's reply: Dear guests, thank you for your positive feedback. We are pleased that you had a lovely winter break and that the house was well situated and equiped for your needs. Thank you

“Great holiday from booking to returning home”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2014

Booking with owner was efficient and well managed. We also took advantage of Phyllis the house cleaner for our return to the airport. Well located house and well within walking distance to local shops, bars and restaurants. We were lucky enough to have friends staying nearby who have visited Gran Alacant for the last 8 years so they pretty much advised us of where to eat. However; there is a wealth of local information available to read at the house advising of all local amenities.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I'm very pleased you found that the booking was efficient and well managed. I'm glad you had a great holiday and found the welcome / information pack useful. Thank you again.

“Lovely place to stay for a quiet break”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2014

This is a lovely villa in a lovely quiet location. Has everything in the villa you could need and ideal for young children, with stair gates, travel cots and high chair. Made travelling with a little one so much easier. The pool was great and very nearby. We didn't go to the beach but I understand that's not far either. Nice selection of places to eat nearby and supermarket close by. The owners and lady who looks after the villa are fantastic and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you found all of the equipment ideal for you and your little one to enjoy your holiday. Having young children of our own I can appreciate how stressful travelling can be so we try to make life as easy as possible for our guests. Thank you again for your feedback it is much appreciated.

“Fantastic, relaxing, homely break with easy access down to the amazing beach”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2014

Enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing break with all the amenities and facilities you could wish for, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay cosy and homely. Carabassi beach is awesome and just a short walk away with stunning sand beaches and clear water. The bus links are very useful just steps away from the house with easy access to Alicante and Santa Pola.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review and it is lovely to know that your holiday was thoroughly relaxing with everything you could wish for. This is what we aim for and what a holiday should be so that is great thank you.

“Fantastic stay in a great location”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2013

Spent four nights in Casa Helgar with family in October. The apartment was immaculate and well furnished with everything you could possibly need. The location was perfect, transfers well organised and efficent, a short walk can take you to the more livelier bars on an evening depending on the type of holiday you are looking for, All in all no complaints from me or any of my family, I cant comment on the beach as didnt get to see it but will be saving that for the next trip next year.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased that you found Casa Helgar immaculate & well furnished and that the location was perfect for a great holiday with your family.

We stayed again at this lovely house and cannot speak highly enough of it. Great facilities and top notch communication with owners and their local key holder. Would highly recommend.

“Fantastic relaxing place!”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

Stayed here for 10 nights and loved it! Would definitely go back. Great location, wonderful views and everything you could need! Only 2 mins walk to bus stop to Alicante or Santa pola. Bars and restaurants only 2 mins away and lots of choice. Only 15 min walk to beach.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your review. Really pleased you loved your holiday and in particular the views and location. Thank you kindly

“Cracking Holiday!”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2013

I booked a 10 day stay at Case Helgar for a much needed break in the sun. The fact that the house is a very short ride from the airport and is very much 'home from home' made the holiday start immediately. 10 days of pure relaxation were perfect. The weather was stunning. The views of the garden opposite were lovely. I spent many hours sat on the roof terrace, sunbathing, reading, sleeping and simply enjoying the panoramic views. The vast,excellent beach is a short walk away, with watersports and a selection of bars. For those wanting to walk/mountain bike, the route to Santa Pola is great for the cooler days and the nature reserve opposite the beach is great and ideally suited for walking/pushchairs/running. The shared pool is just round the corner and perfect for chilling out by. Casa Helgar has everything to make a stay there very pleasurable, even if you decide to eat in.The owner's key holder and her team could not of been more helpful. It is great value and the owners have gone to a lot of trouble to equip it to high standard. I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Casa Helgar and look forward to booking another visit soon after having one of the most relaxing holidays in years!

“Perfect”

Reviewed 29 May 2013

This was our first visit to Casa Helgar, a 10min taxi ride from Alicante airport, after having spent 30 years hiring a car and driving one hour plus to Calpe north of Alicante. The house is truly the best self catering accommodation we have had anywhere and with everything to make the holiday comfortable. The roof terrace gives a breeze in the heat of the day and sitting at the front in the evening sun, overlooking the community garden, is perfect. Any questions/problems and the representatives are on hand or at the end of a phone and cannot do enough to help. The local buses which circuit Gran Alacant; its' beach and commercial centre also go to Alicante and Santa Pola so getting around is easy. There is also the little train which is ideal. If you're into walking the Tourist Office have some good hiking maps, taking in the nature reserves, and biking trails. For shopping the fairly large Maxcoop just around the corner is very well stocked, including meat, fish and cheese counters and prices are good. The beach is superb and very safe for children. Although the season wasn't in full swing the two chiringuitos were open with a good selection of drinks and ices and pleasant staff. There are also water sports available. .We shall certainly be visiting again very soon.
