Today I’m going to write about a place that I love, and in which I have been living for more than 15 years.
For those who do not know it, I will describe it as I do on the web: “Altea Hills is an urbanization located between Altea and Calpe, completely closed with barriers for the control of people entering and leaving it.”
It has video surveillance cameras deployed throughout the urbanization to improve the safety of its residents. “
For me of course, it is probably the best Urbanization of the whole Costa Blanca
It is famous for its luxurious properties, soon it will also be for the ZEM hotel complex that is at the entrance of the Urbanization. It will be a 5-star hotel dedicated to relax and beauty treatments that are expected to open in mid-2020
It is a pleasure to take walks through its streets (some very steep) in sports plan because the air that is breathed and the sea views from 80% of the urbanization are spectacular, and if you let your imagination fly a little, you can feel in Paradise
It is located very close to the Campomanes Marina, which can be accessed without stepping on the road and where you can taste great “paellas” in the Club Náutico restaurant. There my friend Alejandro recreates (and not only with the paellas …), in La Martina where Leo, another Argentine, makes some grilled fish like I have never eaten in my life, or if you prefer “tapas”, in the Cafeteria are fantastics ones, or maybe to have a drink in its comfortable terraces enjoying the better views of the bay (Macao, Bay Club or the Terrace of the Nautical), or if you like water sports you can rent boats, jet skis or kayaks, and if you like the beach you have two, one on each side of the port where to relax and sunbathe.
So far the playful part of the area
Now the practical part:
There is a large supermarket at the entrance of the urbanization from which most of us who live there are supplied. It is very well managed and has quality products, even a lot of ecological product for those of us who take care of ourselves a little (a little, not a lot, eh)
It also has exquisite beers for those who care little!
The Urbanization is located in an excellent site and is protected by the mountains, so it enjoys a wonderful microclimate, less humidity and less heat than at the edge of the sea
The town of Altea is 6 km away and the town of Calpe is 5 km away. The access to the AP7 motorway is 2kms, which puts Benidorm at 10 minutes and the airports of Alicante at 40 minutes and Valencia at 1 hour.
People of all nationalities live in Altea Hills and they do it with great privacy and discretion, making it ideal for people who do not like to attract attention
There are really important people that practically nobody knows that they have a property there.
Normally in summer the temperature is a couple of degrees less than at the edge of the sea, so rest is assured.
The urbanization is composed mainly of spectacular individual villas, but there are also terraced houses and apartment buildings.
So far a general description of the Urbanization by someone who knows it well, now I will leave my opinion (as Isra Bravo says “unsolicited today”)
You know what I think? That in a few years it will be one of the most expensive urbanizations in this part of the Mediterranean …
The entry into the scene of the new hotel will give a radical turn to the whole area, and believe me (opinion of an expert guru): the prices of the properties are going to shoot!
Why do I believe it ?, for several reasons:
1.-) beautifull area. It is one of the most beautiful places on this coast.
2.-) spectacular weather. Ideal temperature all year round without extreme peaks and with sea water always warmer than in the south.
3.-) amazing views!
4.-) tranquility. Little movement of people and schedules of work and noise very controlled by the private security of the Urbanization.
5.-) The new hotel will only give service to very special people and of a high economic level, and it is logical to think that more than one will be captivated by the area and will buy some property around here.
6.-) ease of connection by land, sea and air with the rest of the world.
And much more!
Also, those of us who live here are very cool!
Well, if after all the silly stuff that I have released you I have not convinced you that this is the best place in the world, is that you do not understand anything.
