Altea holidays take you to a charming town, close to Benidorm and Calpe on Spain's sunny Costa Blanca. This delightful town creeps up the hill from pebbled shores. The N332 divides the town, old and new, from the promenade and the Marina. The old town is a pleasure to explore. The cobbled streets wind their way up to the focal point of the town, the church and the square. The church, Nuestra Senora del Consuelo, with is blue dome, is reminiscent of the churches in Santorini. The pretty whitewashed houses, window sills and balconies filled with flowering pots and creepers, add to the allure of the scene. The streets are a mix of dwellings, cafes and small shops so progress uphill to the plaza is generally slow. If you are looking for a relaxing break in the sun, a cheap Altea holiday may be just the ticket.
Low cost Altea holidays have wide appeal. It is here that you'll find the authentic flavour of Spain, and being only a taxi ride from Benidorm, those who wish for relaxation by day followed by party nights, can have the best of both worlds. Although it lacks a sandy beach, the gentle, clear waters of the bay are ideal for young, less confident swimmers. Just a mile south of town at Albir is a good family beach which provides a wide range of activities.

Local wines are as pleasing to the palate as they are to the pocket. Nightlife is low key in this peaceful Costa Blanca town. Those wishing to dance the night away can head south to Benidorm.
