Altea is a magnificent region

A perfect blend of modernism and traditionalism, the city of Altea has managed to preserve its charm of yesteryear.

At the heart of the village, many holidaymakers mix with the artists who have come to enjoy the various assets and landscapes that the city offers. Altea is often considered as one of the most emblems of the Costa Blanca.
