    Tips to Make Your Alicante-Elche Airport Stay as Comfortable as Possible

    Sometimes even our best-laid plans come unstuck. Especially at airports, where we have limited control over airline, weather and other general operational delays. 

    Spain’s airports – including Alicante-Elche – are considered among the most efficient and passenger-friendly in Europe. As with any flights, however (anywhere in the world), it is always advisable to be prepared for the unexpected.

    Here are some tips for ensuring your stay at Alicante-Elche Airport is stress-free and comfortable, whether you are just arriving and passing through briefly (with no hold-ups) or find yourself with a couple of extra hours to fill in after the flight home is rescheduled.

    When Departing

    Parking facilities at Alicante-Elche Airport provide express access for passengers being dropped off by a family member or friend, and a range of short and long-stay options if you are returning to the airport after a few days (or longer) and want the convenience of having your car available for the trip home or back to the hotel. 

    For those wanting an even more fast-track service, the first-class facility is located on the fourth floor of the general car park, with independent access to and from the terminal.

    If you or the passenger you are assisting has a disability or mobility problem, the airport is fully compliant with EU regulations in this respect. Make sure you notify your airline company, tour operator or travel agent at least 48 hours before travelling or when purchasing your ticket.

    Once safely through the control area, Alicante-Elche Airport has a range of coffee shops, bars and restaurants for relaxing while you wait for your flight. If there is a delay and you are starting to feel peckish, you can enjoy anything from tapas and baguettes to a more substantial meal of freshly-prepared regional or international cuisine.

    For a truly pampered stay, the Sala Ifach lounge provides the customary VIP services of drinks and refreshments, reading material, a work area and exclusive Wi-Fi connection. 

    Then, if your boarding gate is still not appearing on the screen, a little retail therapy (for souvenirs or personal travel items) at the airport’s diverse range of shops will help pass the time. 

    On Arrival

    If travelling into Alicante-Elche Airport, once through the airside terminal, the luggage reclaim area is on the ground floor. 

    As for transport… seven car hire companies have desks in the arrivals area on the same ground floor: Avis, Centauro, Europcar, Goldcar, Hertz, RecordGo and Sixt.

    Alternatively, there are local and inter-urban bus services departing from level two opposite the departures area.

    Or, if you prefer the convenience of a taxi, the ranks are located outside the arrivals area. The official airport taxi service is assigned to Radio Taxi Elche, identified by a green stripe running the length of the vehicle and the Elche coat of arms on the door.

    Alicante-Elche has become the third airport in the Aena network to offer an exclusive and personalised Meet & Assist service to passengers. Palma de Mallorca has been offering the service since summer, both Málaga-Costa del Sol and Alicante-Elche launched Meet & Assist in October, and the plan is for it to be implemented at other airports gradually. 

    As the name indicates, the service assists passengers with airport procedures and processes, for both departures and arrivals.

    It includes:

    • Welcome, exclusive passenger attention and accompaniment. 
    • Assistance with luggage check-in.
    • Accompaniment and assistance through customs.  
    • Preferential access at checkpoints (“Fast Lane”).
    • Aena Vip Lounge stay with the following services – catering, newspapers and magazines, flight information, internet access, premium Wi-Fi, children’s area, work area and meeting rooms.
    • Assistance with baggage reclaim.
    • Information and help with transits and connecting flights.  
    • Farewell and help with transfers and transport services.

    The Meet & Assist service can be provided to passengers, families, groups or unaccompanied minors from €50 (taking into account the 50 per cent launch discount promotion).

    Interested users can purchase the service on the Aena website.

    According to Aena, this new initiative has been developed as part of the state airport authority’s ongoing objective of improving the user experience at its network of airports, and also responding to current demand for a service that is already provided at other European airports such as Heathrow, Frankfurt and Schipol.

    Las Colinas Golf & Country Club has been honoured in the European Property Awards for a second consecutive year. During the awards ceremony held at The Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, competing against leading property estates and resorts throughout the main European regions, Las Colinas received top honours in the “Residential Development Spain” category – being crowned as Spain’s leading sustainable golf and residential resort.

    In addition to recognition in the same category last year, the golf and country club was also named as Europe and Spain’s “Leading Villa Resort” in the 2019 World Travel Awards.

    Located in Orihuela Costa (74 kilometres from Alicante and 63 kilometres from Murcia), Las Colinas has now been entered into the overall international awards which, later this year, will determine “the world’s finest property companies”.

    The European Property Awards cover more than 45 residential and commercial categories, with the judging panel of 80 industry experts focusing on design, quality, service, innovation, originality and commitment to sustainability.

    European award for Las Colinas Golf & Country ClubCommenting on this latest honour, managing director Cristobal Guerrero said, “To be awarded in the prestigious European Property Awards again recognises that Las Colinas continues to lead the way in the sustainable property industry in Europe. The resort has a synergy with the natural environment, using the indigenous flora, fauna and topography to its advantage while simultaneously protecting and preserving it for generations to come.

    “This achievement signifies that the high quality and sustainability of the villas and apartments for sale at Las Colinas makes them  the perfect choice for a first or second home.”

    He said the key to Las Colinas Golf & Country Club’s award-winning sustainability was its world-class architecture. “The energy-saving features of its houses, cutting-edge design and technology future-proofs the properties and provides owners with an investment that will hold its value and maintain its appeal for many years.”

    Added Silvia Llanes, head of innovation and development at parent company Gmp, “Las Colinas Golf & Country Club continues to be a top choice for property owners who are interested in experiencing the sustainable Mediterranean lifestyle in Europe.

    “We have responded to the shifting demands of buyers in golf resorts by offering high-quality homes that show tangible value for money. The resort’s appeal extends far beyond golf. The recent opening of the new Las Colinas Sports & Health Club has only strengthened the destination status of the resort, which we hope to continue to develop in the future.”

    The Sports and Health Club is part of ongoing developments for the resort, which already has a Cabell B. Robinson-designed 18-hole course, the Miguel Ángel Jiménez Short Game Facility, a stylish clubhouse and a beach club overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

    Luxury apartments and villas in low-density housing communities with views of the course are available for holiday rentals and for sale. 

    Las Colinas Golf & Country Club is a convenient 50-minute drive from Alicante-Elche Airport and 45 minutes from Corvera Murcia Airport.

    Alicante Leads the Way for Residential-Tourism in Spain

    One of the conventional wisdoms of travel is to observe what the locals are doing and follow their lead. When looking for a place to eat out, for example, if a restaurant is full of (seemingly) local diners, the chances are it’s worth giving a go. If it’s empty, best to give it a miss – unless you are dining at “foreigner’s hour” (or “la hora guiri” in Spain) and the locals are still at home getting ready to go out.

    In an article published by the authoritative Spanish Property Insight portal, residential-tourism expert Mark Stücklin asked, “Where do foreigners buy property in Spain?” The answer is, just about everywhere, but Alicante heads the market with the highest proportion of property buyers from abroad.

    So, if you are trying to decide where to spend your next holiday, bear in mind that the “locals” – that is, those who have already studied the matter diligently, and have put their money where their instinct is – are choosing Alicante as their number one destination.

    Map of foreign property buyers in Spain
    Map by Spanish Association of Land Registrars (SPI)

    This map, created by the Spanish Association of Land Registrars, shows the sales percentages for foreign buyers in each province. Overall, for the latest quarter with available up-to-date figures (April-June), foreigners bought a total of more than 16,000 homes. 

    According to Spanish Property Insight, the market with the highest proportion of property buyers from abroad was Alicante province (in Valencia region, and encompassing the Costa Blanca), with 41.81 per cent of sales in the second quarter involving a foreign buyer.

    Alicante was followed by Tenerife province  in the Canary islands (28.91 per cent), Málaga/Costa del Sol (27.9 per cent), the Balearics (27.49 per cent) and Girona/Costa Brava in Cataluña (26.04 per cent).

    “In many provinces in the north and west of Spain,” notes Stücklin, “foreign buyers are almost insignificant in the market, especially in Galicia where they are less than one per cent of the market in all four provinces.

    “Generally speaking, European buyers led by the British, including second-home buyers and lifestyle/weather migrants, buy on the coast and islands where provinces are coloured orange and red; economic migrants from northern Africa buy in the north-east and cities where provinces are dark yellow; and hardly anybody from abroad buys in the many interior and northern provinces coloured light yellow.”

    Three of Valencia’s Must-See Festivals

    It isn’t just the red and yellow of Spain’s flag that makes the country such a colourful place to be – it’s the passion and culture of its people that does as well. The home of tapas, art and fiestas, the western European country has some of the best festivals the world has to offer.

    There’s no better place to see this for yourself than in Valencia. As city with a strong sense of tradition and a ton of things to see and do, planning to visit there when one of the festivals listed below is on will truly offer an experience like no other.

    From a festival famed for lobbing tomatoes at each other, to another showcasing the spiritual side of the city, here are three festivals you won’t want to miss…

    1 – La Tomatina.

    Yes, this really is a thing. It takes place in the tiny town of Buñol, where thousands of people take to the streets to literally hurl tomato after tomato at one another each summer.

    Certainly one of Spain’s more chaotic events, the weird and wonderful La Tomatina festival originally started in 1945 following a disruption during a parade, where angry locals threw nearby tomatoes in protest. Almost three-quarters of a century later, La Tomatina is now one of the world’s most popular events, attracting thousands of tourists from around the globe each year.

    However, if you do decide to go, make sure to bring a change of clothes. You’ll definitely be needing them.

    2 – Las Fallas.

    Valencia’s most famous and popular event is by far and away the Las Fallas celebrations that take place each March.

    One of the most unique experiences you will ever have, the four-day event sees the city transform itself into a carnival of huge papier-mâché figurines, performances and fireworks. The last day of the event is the crème de la crème though, seeing many locals set their papier-mâché creations alight to welcome in spring. The festival then concludes with a mesmerising bonfire display.

    3 – Holy Week.

    Known more commonly in Spain as Semana Santa, Holy Week is a stunning festival which celebrates the lead up to Easter.

    It takes place throughout the major cities of Spain, with Valencia being particularly well-known for its celebrations. With elaborate events occurring on each day of the week-long build-up, the festival features a number of ornate region-themed floats built by local groups. The Valencian locals also dress up in traditional Spanish wear, while live bands play relaxing music throughout the city.

    It’s one of the most peaceful events you can go to and is a true reflection of how cultural the Spanish people are.
