A well equipped detached villa on a large plot in an urbanisation suitable for families or a small group. Modern interior with TV & internet. While it is situated in an urbanisation, shops, bars & restaurants are a 5 min walk. It's a 10 min drive to the airport & 15 mins to Alicante city with its great shops/market stalls/bars/restaurants/nightlife. The castle & marina are also worth a look. Santa Pola is the next significant town, a very "Spanish" town with restaurants & bars along the beachfront road If you don't want to drive there's plenty of nightlife locally too. Within the local area there's a bus & "train" that circles between the small Gran Alacant Shopping Centre nearby and the fabulous Carabassi Beach 4 mins drive away with its Beach Club where you can rent kite/windsurfers, surfboards & various boats, and enjoy a drink or a snack served to you on your sunbed from the bar!

My wife & I have 3 "kids", all grown up now, who always enjoyed the sea, and who, indeed, are now making use of this villa and the amenities on the beach!
Owner purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Owner chose Gran Alacant
Ger and I have been coming to Gran Alacant now for 15 years. We had a smaller house before we bought this villa, and, as I'm sure you can imagine, when we decided to up size, alternative locations came under examination. After looking around we decided to stay here in Gran Alacant as it satisfies our every need - beach, bars & restaurants, and all at reasonable price - very important these days! The proximity to the Airport and a city weighs heavily in Gran Alacant's favour too. You get here quickly, and can have as quiet or as noisy holiday you like.

We had booked the villa to take family from Australia on holiday to Gran Alacant.
We all loved the villa and the weather was just beautiful. We had a great time.
I would definitely recommend this villa and also owners direct. Thank you Norman
Lovely large villa in Gran Alacant
Just returned from two weeks here and loved it.
The villa was very clean on arrival and with a large garden containing a large swimming pool, six sun loungers, 3 outside tables a garden swing and a BBQ the garden never felt busy. The pool doesn't have a deep end perse which was actually great for pool games for my family as everyone could stand throughout the pool, that wont be the case for all families though, my youngest is 13 and the pool would be deep for younger children
Inside the villa is large with air conditioning and a fan in practically every room. The lounge has sofas which seat 5 comfortably and with two bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs the layout is great. The bedroom upstairs has an ensuite and a view out to the upstairs solarium.
The kitchen was very well equipped and contained a large fridge, a microwave, dishwasher and grill oven and hob. There was even a breville machine.
Communication with the owner was good and we would go back.
The villa is roughly a 10 minute walk from two nearby centres. The older centre was quieter and the agentinian steak restaurant is recommended. The newer centre has 2 supermarkets, a LIDL, a burger king, a number of restuarants and a entertainment for the kids. We preferred the newer centre but it was busier.
You don't necessarily need a car here. The airport is 10 minutes away, the bus service is good and there is a tourist train to take you round the whole resort. We would recommend the caribassi beach, 10 minutes by car, the sand is clean, their are lifeguards, small bars, a gradual slope out and at times big waves.
There are a number of other centres in the resort but we never got to try them all out. The resort was busy but it wasn't noisy. I'd go back with the family.
Una maravilla, TODO perfecto tanto en la casa como en el jardín y la piscina.
Disfrutamos mucho de la zona del jardin con 3 ambientes y la piscina. Y gracias a los aires acondicionados y las mosquiteras en TODAS las habitaciones y en el salon, pudimos elegir la temperatura de cada sitio sin temor a los mosquitos. Gracias Norman!!!!
Virkelig dejligt hus
Stor og lækker villa, med alt hvad man behøver. Den store terrasse med pool var hele ugens opholdssted. Vi kommer helt sikkert tilbage 👍🏼
The main beach is the beautiful Carabassi beach which is about 4 mins drive or 20 mins walk away. It has several boardwalk access points, one of which goes fully to the Beach Club and may be useful for someone with mobility issues. The Club provides sunbeds (for a charge) on the beach and there's a bar and Aquatic rental facility for kite/windsurfer, boat, surfboard etc rentals. There are also beach parties at night during peak times ! The tourist "train" & bus can be taken to/from the beach.
Alicante Airport is the nearest airport and is only about 10 minutes away. Cars can be hired at the airport or locally as required but note the airport is no more expensive than hiring locally. A car is not essential and there are plenty of taxis outside the airport to take you the 10 minute drive to the villa. If you don't hire a car the "train" & bus service can be used around the local area & to the beach. This "train" is a great way to get a quick "feel" for the area.
Locally in Gran Alacant you will find everything you need for a great holiday. The Gran Alacant Shopping Centre is 3 mins walk and the beautiful Carabassi Beach is 4 mins by car. If you want to go further afield...Santa Pola, a Spanish fishing town is about 7 minutes away by car, and Alicante city with all that comes with any city, is about 15 minutes away by car. A taxi to/from Alicante is very reasonable, and the bus service to/from costs pennies!
Gran Alacant has all the amenities one would expect in any town...banks, ATMs, pharmacies, doctors, medical clinic, internet cafes, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, clubs etc. But if you want to go a bit further then go see the pink flamingos on the salinas (salt lakes) in Santa Pola (7 minutes away by car). Day trips can be taken to Terra Mitica theme park and Aqualandia water park, both about 45 minutes drive away. Guadalest is worth a trip for its amazing scenery and the green lagoon.
