Altea with class part 1
Given the comments of a reader of my blog who has lived in Altea a few years ago and did not enjoy the experience
that is always personal and not transferable,
I want to talk about the places we have in this town and where people with class and money go around
and I can assure you that there is a lot, people with “silver” or “twine”, as an Argentine would say
and also that it has to be clear and that nobody misunderstands me by what I say in blogs, that Altea seems to me wonderful and very pleasant to live in.
I simply complain about carelessness and lack of care by the authorities on duty,
and do not believe that there is a political color here,
since I have been living in Altea for almost 30 years and I have not seen any government of any color that did what I asked.
I totally agree with the “alteanos” who do not want sandy beaches so that the town does not overcrowd, because it is not prepared to receive a large amount of tourism, infrastructure is lacking, and so and this summer we have had an invasion of tourists from very Low level spent at the supermarket, gas station and little else.
Why do we want them if they contribute nothing and make everything dirty?
Most of those who live in this town want the people of class and level who come to their homes, usually with service, sail on their beautiful yachts and go to the few but spectacular restaurants we have here.
Those are not seen because before the barbarian invasion that we are suffering they are hidden, they are confined in their homes and their boats and do not want to know anything about the personnel that is loose.
A good example of this is to go shopping these days at the Mas y Mas supermarket at the entrance to the Campomanes port (MARINA GREENWICH).
I do not recommend it to anyone … It is an experience …
The owners that interest us are not new rich, we don’t want them.
Altea is not Mallorca, Ibiza or Marbella. As I said in another blog, we want people with class and level who want to go unnoticed, and when they come here they put on the pants and the oldest (and most comfortable) shirt they have and on the street they don’t even recognize them tito.
They want tranquility and peace.
Their daily lives are very active and often stressful, so what they like most about Altea is its slow running, its calm
For them it’s like stopping in time ..
they can think ..
something that current life almost does not leave us …
They can go easy without anyone bothering them.
I remember that when BERTIN OSBORNE was around here, he told me that what he liked most about Altea is that he could go everywhere without being bothered by anyone, which he could not do elsewhere.
Anyway, I will try to make a brief review of the sites that I like and that I know well in Altea.
And I repeat that it is a personal experience.
You can match it, or not.
It is a matter of taste…
but I guarantee you will not need to go to Calpe or Benidorm at all. How awful!
Note: I will only mention businesses that are located in the municipality of Altea.
Here it goes:
Today I will only mention restaurants because if not the blog will be too long. Next week I’ll speak about other bussiness.
Let’s start with what throws us the most!
At least the fat boys like me!
LA BRUSCHETTA. There is, what a loss! I don’t know if you know that my origin is Italian, my father was, therefore I have a special predilection for good Italian food.
And I can assure you that Tommaso is a teacher ... I have known him for 30 years and there he continues, at the foot of the canyon delighting so many people with his art and good work.
I don’t want to overdo it in praise because you’re going to think I have a particular interest.
I guarantee you no.
Moreover, lately I go very little because I have been on a permanent diet, until I go to the other side…..
And when it happens.. I hope I can still do a diet!
you never know!
Yes, I can’t skip it anymore.
It is the law of life!
Today’s unsolicited advice: if you don’t know him, try it, and then tell me
PD: it has a warehouse that I am going to tell you for! look at the picture …
Another place to which I also go very little, for the same reason given before …
Mariano is a genius, in addition to a great writer, he is a public relations teacher. He has created such a beautiful place and makes such a delicious meal that spending an evening in his gardens in summer and in his beautiful dining room in winter is a comforting dining experience.
Joan is a guy who, besides being a great worker and having a great passion, knows very well what he has in his hands.
Recently an article appeared in the spanish newspaper Expansión where it named the 10 restaurants in Spain where you can eat the best meat.
Guess which one was among them?
As I said in another blog,
in addition to a beautiful site by the sea, Alejandro is a teacher….
Fantastic belgian restaurante
Argentinian restaurant. Very good fish and meat at “la parrilla”
Another great restaurant inside Puerto Campomanes.
With the quality of always the experience of years….
Unique site for its privileged situation.
You can eat everything and enjoy a drink with the sea on your feet. In addition Raul takes it which is a guarantee….
In the Old Town although I recognize that I am not going much, I will mention some very good ones:
Infront of Puerto de Altea, in town, very good belgian restaurant. Try it.
And already in the limits of the municipality and at the end of the promenade there is a very special place that is not a typical restaurant but a modern one: a gastrobar.
It has a great atmosphere and you can taste very special “tapas”, in addition to some great drinks … And the staff is great as well as handsome: Dani, Mario, Venus; Juan, David, Nico etc, etc. are many and all very nice and I can’t mention them all.
Note: I’m going to skip the previous rule and I’m going to mention a place on the sidewalk in front of Altea:
If you don’t know it, you must try it.
Excellent meat and fish and great tapas, Meli also won several cocktail tournaments …
Gossip: I was blown by a little bird that for the next year has been awarded a Michelin Star.
Surely there will be more places that I personally do not know but are probably very good.
I am not the owner of the truth.
In the next blog I will expand information from sites other than restaurants.
I hope it was useful
A hug and see you next week
