Alluring Altea Holidays
Now a pretty little town along the White Coast, Altea was once a quaint fishing village where small boats would reel in their catches of the day and take them to market – fortunately for tourists, Altea holidays are not without this old-style charm and the area has held on to its traditional Spanish flair. Known as one of the most beautiful and well-placed towns in Costa Blanca, this commune is made up of two parts, the old and new neighbourhoods. Heading to the old neighbourhood will perch you upon the verdant hilly landscape, showcasing outstanding panoramic views, while the new neighbourhood revels in its own architectural beauty with authentic village buildings painting the scene here.
