Welcome to Altea

Welcome to Altea, possibly the most charming town located in the north province of Alicante on Costa Blanca’s Mediterranean coast.

Altea is situated at the foot of the stupendous Sierra Bernia mountain range and in the estuary of the river Algar, with 8 kilometers of beautiful stretches of beaches and coves and a micro climate to match, you would find it difficult to find a more perfect place to live.

Slow down and absorb all that Altea has to offer, in the old town, wind your way down the labyrinth of streets packed with character and filled with an array of quaint boutiques offering everything you want and need, from high end fashion to quirky hand crafted gifts. The maze of narrow cobbled crooked streets and traditional whitewashed houses are enchanting leading the way to the  splendid “La Mare de Deu del Consol” (our lady of solace), the picturesque church with its huge blue and white ceramic tiled dome is one of the most photographed landmarks in Spain. What better place to enjoy your coffee or vino in the pretty square outside the church with its breath taking views of the mountains and sparkling turquoise seas.

Altea has a community filled with multicultural expatriates thanks to being the newest Cultural Capital of the Valencian region, an ever popular retreat for artists and writers alike, you will find many artist workshops, galleries and coffee shops filled with fantastic art or funky bars with live music performers. With a brand new concert hall, the Palau Altea and the fine arts university, Altea is the place to inspire and be inspired.
