Property description

The villa is located in the Sierra Altea, on the 7th fairway of the Don Cayo Golf Club, less than a 10 minute drive to beautiful Costa Blanca beaches. Situated in the Province of Alicante within the Valencia Region, the villa is nestled in the charming fishing town of Altea within walking distance to the old village of Altea La Vella. There is easy access to/from both Alicante & Valencia airports via the well-maintained Autopista AP7.

Altea is the International Center for the musical arts and also the center for fine arts for the Valencia Region. The School for the Fine, Musical & Media Arts of the University of Alicante is located in the town. The cosmopolitan yet unassuming town is rich in local culture and architecture and welcomes visitors from all over Europe as a popular vacation destination. The local cuisine is fabulous, from light fresh seafood & vegetables grown in the region, to its famous rice dishes. Food & Wine Magazine named the Alicante Region 'The next food mecca' in 2011. There are many restaurants in Altea & Altea la Vella with broad variety in both menu and price. The Valencia region is of course, the birthplace of paella and known for its wide range of rice dishes.

The striking Costa Blanca is known for its Sierra-like granite rock mountains, white beaches & fabulous weather, much like San Diego, dry, sunny and moderate. There is always a gentle breeze off the bright blue Mediterranean Sea to cool the hot days. Average rainfall is about 10 inches per year.

This charming 35+ year old villa has been completely renovated. It is very spacious with an open floor plan that includes a formal dining room, large island 'American' kitchen, living room, & expansive covered outdoor living area on the main level with the pool terrace and striking 180 degree views from the sea to the mountains. Located on a cul de sac in a safe, upscale neighborhood, with an electric security gate & intercom.

The Master Suite is located on the main floor, with four additional spacious bedrooms located on the lower level. The house also has a separate office with a Queen size sofabed and wireless Internet access throughout. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful, mature & well-maintained garden that includes fruit trees, flowers & many exotic plants.

The panoramic views from the main pool terraces include the Mediterranean Sea, the mountains, the distant city skylines of Benidorm and others, and sits in the center of the scenic 7th fairway of the Club Don Cayo Golf Course. The beach is just a few minutes drive away.

The oversized master suite offers direct access to the pool terrace, has a King size bed, a large round spa bath tub, large shower, two sinks, a secluded toilet area and four closets. The rest of the four bedrooms are beautifully furnished, spacious, also with large closets. One downstairs bedroom is en suite & two of the downstairs bedrooms offer private terraces.

You can walk to the local village of Altea la Vella in 15 minutes, drive into the main town of Altea and beach in about 5 minutes. There are also many attractions, activities and points of interest for the entire family, within 15 to 30 minutes of the villa.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. After traveling for work all over Europe, I fell in love with Spain, the Mediterranean Sea, the lovely Spanish culture, the amazing food and the Spanish people. Visiting the Valencia Region, I fell in love with Altea and bought this villa. A couple of years later, the movie, 'Under the Tuscan Sun' came out and my friends told me it reminded them of my adventure in Spain, remodeling the villa and getting to know the charm of this beautiful town and WONDERFUL people!

Why the Owner Chose Altea, Alicante, Spain:
Recently distinguished as a 'National Treasure' of Spain, Altea is a small fishing town, with a strong Spanish culture and vibrant artist community, and so cosmopolitan. I love being so close to the incredible Med Sea. And, in less than an hour in any direction you can be in some of the most wonderful cities!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Unbelievable views, great location with so much to do within 20 minutes in any direction, comfortable Spanish charm, and great weather. Bullet train from Valencia to Madrid in 1 hour 20 minutes. It's a special place!
