When one thinks of the Costa Blanca coast in Spain, one often conjures up images of high rise apartment blocks and thousands of tourists on crowded beaches. However, property in Altea Hills is a million miles from this image – imagine a pocket along the coast with amazing vistas of the coast, cool summer breezes and peace and tranquillity, yet still only a 3 minute drive to the beach. Altea Hills property has rapidly established itself as one of the best bargains to be had.
Altea Hills is a resort a mere 45 minutes drive away from Alicante airport, yet a million miles from the cheap tacky tourist areas of Benidorm. Altea itself is a beautiful historic town, with cobbled streets, a church, piazza and a myriad of cafes, shops and restaurants.
Altea Hills is a resort which is perched on a mountain, with views of the Mediterranean sea, the old town, and of course the wonderful beaches. On a good, clear day (of which there are many!), you can even see the skyline of Alicante in the distance. Altea properties range from luxurious multi million euro villas, to more modest apartments, albeit which still have million dollar views!
Today it is even easier to purchase a dream property in Altea Hills. The recession has caused properties all over Spain, Altea included, to drop significantly, and it is now possible to pick up bargain properties in Altea, and Altea Hills for a fraction of what they would have cost 2 or 3 years ago. Apartments which were selling for more than 500,000 in 2006 can now be bought for as little as 200,000 or even less.
Altea Hills property remains one of the most exclusive in the Costa Blanca, and yet, for some reason, the area is still one of the coasts hidden secrets. The area is also very well connected, with a motorway taking you to the centre of Alicante in less then 30 minutes, or north up to Valencia in a little over an hour. With a huge selection of Altea property to choose from, now is one of the best times to purchase your dream Altea property.
