Homero, Canto XII, La Odisea:

Homero, Canto XII, La Odisea: "Para aquí tu navio, escucha el cantar que cantamos, nunca nadie pasó por aquí con su negro navío sin que de nosotros supiera las voces suaves; y después, recreados, se iban conociendo más cosas".


Is a typical Mediterranean city. With its majestic palm trees, crystal-blue sea, white beaches, two historic 16th centuries’ castles, various shopping centres and its never-ending nightlife. The days are too short in Alicante!


Alicante offers an interesting range of activities: sports, libraries, art-galleries, cultural halls, museums, open-air concerts, and a 19th century theatre with an extensive programme.

The diversity of the landscape, a marvellous climate and superb facilities make sport one of the main attractions. Our pleasure harbour and beach provides you with all the opportunities the sea offers: swimming, water skiing, sailing, windsurfing, fishing, diving, regattas and competitions. About the climate: there are a total of 2.730 sun-hours per year on the coast and the water temperature varies from 13º C minimum in winter to 29º C maximum in summer.

On the other hand, golf or adventure sports such as mountaineering, cycling, riding, piloting, trekking etc. are available all over the year.


Depending on the season in which you happen to be staying with us, you will fall in love with Alicante and its FIESTAS.

The most important of these is undoubtedly The Bonfires of San Juan, Las Hogueras de San Juan (20th - 24th June). These days nobody sleeps. Dozens of monuments made of wood and papier-mâché are assembled in the streets; there is music everywhere, fireworks and people dancing in the streets. The 24th of June, after an amazing fireworks display, all monuments are ignited and Alicante explodes in a blaze of colour, which is when the real FIESTA begins!
