This fabulous Finca is located off the beaten path, but is a short drive to the beach, the town of Altea and interesting tourist attractions. The views are exquisite, the rooms are impeccable and the grounds and pool are beautiful. The biggest and best surprise of all were the dinners. Lucio, the chef, creates exquisite inventive meals that you would... More

We had a few days at the end of our holiday and wanted to stay somewhere near Altea. Finca el Tossal was available and the reviews were good. The hotel is located in the mountains above Bollula. It looks out towards the coast which is about a 20 -30 minute drive away. Access is via a narrow steep and winding... More

We loved the views, breakfast and dinner on the terrace and such wonderful food. Sonia and Thorsten were brilliant hosts, making us feel welcome in what feels like their home. The rooms are spacious, but lack air conditioning, so can get hot. The pool and gardens are fantastic and we spent lazy days there with no need to find lunch... More

We stayed here for a week and can quite honestly say it was one of the best holidays ever. Our charming, dedicated hosts Thorsten and Sonia have created a marvellous retreat high up in the mountains inland from Altea. The views from the rooms and the restaurant are simply stunning. If you need a beach, there are several within 30... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with two young children (2 and 5) driving from Madrid. It was a lovely few days away in a stunning location up in the mountains. Sonia and Thorsten were perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The pool and lawn are fantastic for children and we got to relax too. Dinner was great -... More

I have been in the facility during June 2014 with my family and 2 children ( 10 and 12 ). The place is in the nature, on a hill which has amazing views and a lot of tranquility. The air is clean and fresh there. Getting to the facility is a challenge if you dont have a car. The facility... More

Found this on the internet, needed a holiday with total relaxation and found it. Sonia and Thorsten were the perfect hosts - there if you needed them. We stayed for 11 nights - Dinner is fantastic - Lucio the chef always managed to surprise and delight us. We will be returning,

I reserved this rural hotel thinking it would be a bit closer to everything, but it is really hidden in the mountains, and the only access is a very small road that goes on for quite a while. I read the comments of the other guests on the access road and did not think it would be that bad, but... More

We looked in the internet for a small and quiet place with opportunities for roadbiking and relaxing by the pool, and found this lovely small hotel. Stayed there for one sunny week in April. The hotel is located the middle of beautiful nature and far enough from the infamous tourist traps by the seashore. In the neighbouring mountains, there are... More

We booked at very short notice and stayed three nights. From the very start, Sonia and Thorsten could not have been more helpful and we arrived to find it perfect in every way. Lovely room, fantastic bed (and pillows), amazing views, great food, generous and welcoming hosts. It is also great value and the location is ideal for both beach... More
