Altea is without doubt one of the most charming towns to be found on Spain’s ‘White Coast’, located in the region of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. The town is just 11 kilometres north of Benidorm. Altea is similar to other Costa Blanca towns in that it has a new and an old neighbourhood. The old section is perched on top of a hill from where you will find really spectacular views. All in all Altea is a pretty town, popular with both holidaymakers and those fortunate enough to be able to live in the area; it has a slowly growing community of multinational expatriates.
The name Altea derives from the Moors who conquered the region and named it Althaya, meaning health to all.
Traditional rice is what you will find easily on the Spanish menu.
Altea is in a privileged location with an excellent mild climate, with an average temperature of 20° C.
