During the winter the average temperature is around 15º and in summer there are more than 14 hours of daylight, the temperature is between 25º and 29º and the average sea temperature from June to September is 25º.
This privileged microclimate is created by the perfect combination of the mild temperatures of the Mediterranean Sea and the Sierra Bernia mountains to the north of Altea which act as a “screen” of protection against cold winds and bad weather.
No wonder so many European pensioners dream of buying a house in Altea to retire to one day and enjoy its excellent climate.
Healthy and wholesome life
Sun, sea and mountains, far from the environmental pollution of cities and large industrial estates. The health benefits are obvious. As its name of Greek origin indicates, to speak of Altea is to speak of a healthy and wholesome life, of a place where you can disconnect and immerse yourself in nature to practice all kinds of sports, walk enjoying beautiful landscapes of sea and mountains or simply stroll through the small streets of its beautiful old town.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that this Mediterranean climate is one of the “healthiest”. That is why people with respiratory problems, asthma or skin problems are often recommended to stay for a while on the Costa Blanca. Many people who suffer from rheumatism or other muscular or joint complaints feel much better in this microclimate and have therefore decided to buy a house and live in Altea permanently or spending long periods of time here every year.
