Ladies and Gentlemen
First of all, I want to apologize for my bad English. It is too difficult to translate my bad Spanish!
Now I change for the serious side … (go from boys and girls to ladies and gentlemen!)
My first serious blog is about this beautiful town located on the Costa Blanca called Altea
Those who know it, already know what I’m talking about, surely they have been captivated by its beauty, its climate, its gastronomy and the tranquility that is breathed.
If you don’t know Altea … well, I’m sorry, you do not know what you’ve lost.
Take the car, the plane or the AVE and in a moment you can leave behind the boredom, routine and stress of daily life.
I did it, it’s true that I changed my life several times, but I already have it clear, from here they take me out with my feet forward!
Do I tell you a little story about any day in my hard life in Altea?
I get up between 7.30 and 8.30, depending on whether the night was hard, or soft …) I do my exercise routine.
at my age it is more important than eat!
and to have breakfast in the kitchen or on the terrace ..
300 days a year with sun …
Can you imagine it?
And I do not tell you what it is to have breakfast with these beautiful views of the sea and the bay of Altea with the figures of the skyscrapers of Benidorm in the background !.
That sea so blue and that light so typical of the Mediterranean …
The one who reads this and is not in the area is allowed to dream a little …
If I don’t have an appointment, I’ll go to the office in Puerto Campomanes
and to enter the labor orbit, I do not forgive my coffee with exquisite milk that they prepare in Miau.
Once in the office I get to work very hard, eh?
Don’t think badly,
If I can and I do not have clients, at 14:30 I go home where I eat ecological broccoli with quinoa, buckwheat and tuna or mackerel or sardines
how do you think I keep the type?
After the coffee back to the office until 8 or 9 at night.
Some days I have luck and I eat very light at home but many don’t and my wife, who is much younger than me, she pulls me out of my hair to the car again….
how do you think I keep the type?
To drink something by a gastrobar or restaurant fantastic that there is around here.
If I go to Altea it normally takes 5 minutes, except in summer I get really angry about the amount of cars there are, and instead of 5 minutes it takes 10!
Anyway, I keep telling you?
Better not, I’ll release it little by little and in several chapters so you do not hate me!
Are we talking about a microclimate?
A friend of mine, from Altea, released me one day that they have done a study, I do not know where, and that Altea is one of the five best microclimates in the world.
I do not know if it’s true or not,
about the study ..
But what about the microclimate, of that I can give faith.
I have lived in many places in the world, and none like this one.
I must clarify that I like change, I do not always want heat or always cold, and Altea has an average temperature of 19 degrees. In summer it does not rise more than 26-27 degrees in the hottest time of noon and in winter it does not go below 7 or 8 in the coldest hours of the night (during the 12-14th day)
And what can I tell you about the sea and beaches of Altea?
The truth is that I have already been to the beach a lot, and now, and especially on medical recommendation, I almost do not go.
Could it be that I’m getting older?
But if you like the beach and the serene and warm sea,
has to enjoy about 8 kms of calm and transparent waters in which areas of cliffs and small coves alternate with stretches of beach, usually gravel and pebbles. The Pot, Cap Negret, Mascarat, La Roda, Cap Blanc …
They are perfect beaches for relaxing and sunbathing without large crowds of people, as can happen in other areas such as Benidorm.
If you like nature …
Living in Altea is living with nature,
The mountains and the sea merge and the incredible views that form … .. You can not even imagine it if you do not see it.
For the intellectuals …
Altea has been named City of culture in 2019-20
Altea has an artistic-cultural charm that characterizes it, and in spite of the urban changes that the whole Costa Blanca has suffered, it has always known how to preserve a bohemian atmosphere for what is considered the cultural capital of the Valencian Community.
Without a doubt, if you decide to buy or rent a house to live in Altea, you will enjoy the very special artistic and bohemian atmosphere.
For athletes …
Sea, clean air and exceptional weather … what more can sports lovers ask for?
There is everything: water sports, scuba diving, mountaineering, paragliding, golf … etc, etc
Whatever you want…
In short, living here is a privilege enjoyed by some 25,000 people. No more.
If you want … you know. Do not think twice and come with us.
A greeting from one who is very lucky to be able to live here.
See you next week.
