Welcome to Alicante, Spain! Let us give you a quick tour what you should expect from the area around.
Both of Little Sunny House apartments are located on the first line to the beach as you can see on the photo above.
The name of the street where our apartments situated is calle Virgen del Socorro. And the street is placed right across the beach, called “Playa Postiget”.
It`s pretty much one and alone beach in Alicante city. So all other people will walk, drive or use a public transport to get here, as for you… you will live on the beach.
Santa Barbara Castle is behind the apartment buildings where we have our Little Sunny House apartments. You have two options to get to the top of the castle hill: to walk or to use the elevator. Many of our guests like to hike, to run or to do any other kind of sport activities in the Castle Park.
But if you prefer to use the elevator it`s also fine. The cost to get to the top is about 2.70 EUR per an adult person. You need to leave your apartment building, get into the elevator which is the part of white pedestrian bridge and go to the very bottom floor (0). After you reach the bottom floor, please leave the elevator, turn right and walk for about 15-20 meters, you`ll see an entrance to the tunnel under the Castle Hill. Inside of the tunnel you`ll find another elevator which will bring you to the top of Castle Santa Barbara Hill and you`ll able to enjoy beautiful panoramas of the city of Alicante and Mediterranean Sea!
Beautiful marina is about 10-12 mins walking from both of our apartments. And we have no doubts that you`ll enjoy this walk along the beach!
Closest to the apartments shopping mall with a big grocery store calls “Plaza Mar 2” and it`s also just 15 mins walking distance from the apartments.
The oldest active church in town and an absolute “must see” in any tourist guide book about Alicante Basilica Santa Maria is 5 mins walking from the apartments. The church was built in the thirteenth century in Gothic style on a place of an ancient mosque. In front of the church is a cute little square were you can peacefully relax on a bench, listening the music of the bells, looking at the white pigeons cooing on the porch of the church and just feeling this relaxing vibe of the city of Alicante.
And of course, the nearest place we would recommend to go to find a restaurant or bar according your own taste is Plaza Santisima Faz. It`s really is a unique place: live (and free!) music, a lot of restaurants and cafes, multilingual crowd and an old Rome fountain where you still can get some water to drink… All you need to get a feeling that you are in the center of “Old Europe”. This feeling and Spanish cuisine who could ask for more?:)
