Integrated in the tradition of our town
Our unique building, converted into a hotel and restaurant, held the olive oil mill activity in the center of a rural place with olive, almond and orange trees. It was a typical altean farmhouse, now converted into a hospitality establishment that cares for the legacy of our ancestors. 500 meters from the Old Town of Altea and 1.5 km. from Altea beach, our hotel is integrated into the Altean landscape as a holdover from bygone days.
