Apartment for 6 people in Altea


Luxury condo with spectacular views, private pools and Jacuzzi

At just a forty five minutes drive from the airport of Alicante, in the exclusive Sierra de Altea you will find the remarkable complex Semiramis II, a small but generous scale project with 12 luxury apartments. The complex is situated in a prime location on the south slope of the Serra Bernia mountains, far above the crowds, with breathtaking views over the Mediterranean sea, the old town of Altea and in the distance the skyline of Benidorm.

In Moorish style and of pink rock built under complete architecture, Semiramis II is a striking appearance in the hills above Altea. The fully enclosed complex offers a spacious courtyard with flowering bougainvillea and oleander, two communal swimming pools and comfortable terraces. The building is thus designed that each apartment offers full privacy. The apartments are spacious and bright, comfortably equipped and, of course, air conditioned and heated. Each apartment has its own private Jacuzzi on the comfortable terrace surrounded by spectacular views over nearby villages, the mountains and the sea.

At the foot of the hill in the cozy village of Altea la Vella, you will find the luxury golf club Don Cayo. This delightful little golf club, designed by the architects Pedro Barber and Gregorio Sands and opened in 1974, offers by its unique location in the foothills of the Sierra de Bernia mountains a challenging 9 - hole course with extraordinary views. A few miles down the road is the beautiful seaside resort of Altea with its historic old town clustered around the whitewashed dome. The coast south of Calpe, where Altea is located, has a microclimate which causes the winters to be considerably warmer than the north of Calpe. This makes the Altea area a very attractive destination for snowbirds from across Northern Europe and beyond.
