A home with a view – modernist villa for sale in Altea, Costa Blanca

Views Altea luxury propertyThere are spots that conjure up the classic image of privileged and jet set lifestyles; places whose charm and idyllic setting drink in views that are the stuff that dreams are made of. The Mediterranean has its share of these, so you needn’t feel restricted to the likes of Monaco, St Tropez and Porto Cervo and their stratospheric prices.

Indeed, the panorama afforded by the town of Altea, on Spain’s east coast, is every bit as impressive, including in a single gaze a sweeping bay, the iconic outcrop of Calpe jutting into the sea and the Mediterranean meeting the sky on the distant horizon. Calpe has been likened to the Rock of Gibraltar in shape and stance, another icon of an ancient sea.

To enjoy a prominent vantage of this spectacle is a privilege indeed, but it is exactly that which gives this authentic modernist villa such rare appeal. Set up against the slopes of a mountain overlooking the sea, Calpe and Altea, the property enjoys an open window to the curvature of the bay.
