Self catering accommodation in Spain - Costa Blanca.

Ideal base for Walking, Climbing, Cycling, and Relaxation

Two traditional town houses available for rent. Situated in the village of Abdet, near Guadalest surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery, yet only 25 kms from Benidorm.

The Houses: Feature well appointed bathrooms (one ensuite), and spacious bedrooms. Other features are "double height" living area, private garden/patio, open fire/stove for those cool winter evenings in this peaceful mountain village. There is even a secret hiding place, a reminder of Spain's relatively recent turbulent history.

Self catering accommodation in Spain - Costa Blanca




Abdet is situated in the heart of the Costa Blanca mountains. Ideally placed for a wide variety of walks, some straight from your doorstep! The peaceful village has only 100 residents yet you are certain of a warm welcome.

Other popular areas include the Sierra Aitana, Monte Ponoch, Puig Campana; the Val de Arc; the Benidorm Area - Sierra Helada, Sierra Cortina; Sierra Serrella/Aixorta; Val de Algar; Val de Galinera/Forada; and the North-west Sierras.

You will find more than enough walks to keep you going for a couple of weeks in the local area though.

Here are three local walks - ideal for families.


Also check out the climbing pages here, our accommodation is very popular with climbers


El Flare - A great selection of routes in a beautiful setting that would provide a few days entertainment for most middle grade climbers. The unusual "rib" on the Gossos buttress provides a couple of unique routes. And the stalagtites in Piedra Liquida are not to be missed. There are several trad routes here that are well worth doing, so be sure to bring a selection of nuts and cams.
