Altea is a picturesque village located on the "White Coast".
Boasting many up market residences and luxury properties, but also typically rustic charming homes.
Altea is one of the gems which make up the Costa Blanca Riviera’s notoriously beautiful coastline.
This cosmopolitan village is one of the most charming and fascinating on this beautiful coast.
Along the esplanade interesting boutiques and shops jostle with restaurants and bars.
Narrow lanes of whitewashed houses and gourmet restaurants wind up the hill to a cobbled square with bustling pavement cafes overlooked by the distinctive blue ceramic domes of the church.
In summer the old town is totally pedestrianised and the streets around the church are taken up with arts and crafts stalls where local artists exhibit their work.
As well as the crystal clear sea and blue flag beaches, the area has plenty of activities.
Altea counts also with its prestigious "Altea Hills Resort", this residential complex with 24 hours security guard.
At just a stone’s throw away from the Luis Campomanes Sports Marina and the Don Cayo Golf Club.
The little beach resort of Albir in the area of Alfaz del Pí is wedged between Benidorm and Altea.
It is ideally suited for those who’d like an alternative to the busy beaches of Benidorm.
The beach in Albir made by soft smooth rocks, has won prizes for its quality, and is known for clean water.
The best of all, Albir’s beach is at walking distance from nearly every hotel, apartment or villa and the whole area has got facilities for disabled people.
Nested in the Sierra Gelada there is a famous stylish spa complex set in beautiful, natural surroundings, proposing to enjoy a complete relaxation. "Treatments have taken inspiration from those of the Far East and other revolutionary treatments developed in the West".
A little higher in land is located Alfaz del Pi followed directly by La Nucia with its impressive "Puig Campana" mountain in the back, its famous British school "Elians" and its impressive sport center.
Two villages completely organized for a permanent living.
Alfaz has the second biggest concentration of Norwegian residents abroad along with sizable Dutch end English communities.
Alfaz del Pi is particularly proud of its environmental protection plans which are strictly adhered to and means that you won’t see any high rise apartment blocks but lots of green spaces.
There are two Norwegian schools. The "Costa Blanca School " and the "Albir Norwegian School" which has been financed totally by the Norwegian Government.
Alfaz is also home to a nationally renowned film festival which runs each year.
