About Chris or Jackie Mitchell
We fell in love with Gran Alacant when we visited in 2000 and decided to buy our holiday home here. We visit several times a year ourselves and always find new places to visit and things to do. There is everything we need for a great holiday!
Chris or Jackie Mitchell purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Chris or Jackie Mitchell chose Gran Alacant
Our apartment is situated on the secure gated Mediterraneo 1 urbanisation with beautiful pools and tennis court. Its close to Alicante Airport, fabulous sandy beaches, bars, restaurants, bus route and tourist train. A fabulous holiday location!

Our apartment is situated in one of the best locations in Gran Alacant. It is supplied with everything you will need for a great holiday, including Free super fast fibre optic WiFi, and UKTV.
Lovely apartment, excellent proximity to the airport & bars & restaurants on the doorstep. Lovely pool area & very spacious outside area at apartment for dining outside. What more could you need!
Bus or tourist train right outside to get to supermarket for any essentials.
Will be back!
The owners and reps for the apartment could not have been more helpful and quick to respond.
Ideal location in a lovely, clean and friendly urbanisation.
We loved our holiday.
The pool area is fantastic- so clean, lifeguard on duty, three pools to choose from, and it’s about 20 steps from the apartment. The sun beds belonging to the apartment were great to use.
The whole complex is so secure with locked gates.
Everything you need is in the apartment. Washing machine was great to have and the drying racks.
Air con works a treat. So quick to cool down the rooms after being out plus ceiling fans work so well we sometimes didn’t need the air con on.
Very easy to get around- things are within walking distance but land train and urbano bus are regular and cheap!
Great row of restaurants right outside the gates and plenty to do in the GA centre with restaurants, shops, supermarkets and lots o fun activities for the kids just 5 minutes away on the bus.
Travel agent in the GA centre was fabulous for booking day trips.
Carabassi beach is beautiful with waves to jump and plenty of sun beds and space.
Easy to get a bus to Alicante 30 mins and to Santa pola 10 mins. Very good markets to attend there twice a week!
We will be looking to come back again in the near future.
Best family holiday!
We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely well positioned property, ideal for the beach, buses,restaurants and bars.
The pools were fantastic.
everything you need for family enjoyment, also on level ground for any one with impaired walking.
Chill out stay as per usual
Again another comfortable stay at your apartment meeting the new keyholders Angie and husband on our arrival. As we've stayed before new the ropes ha ha. Everyone friendly on the complex and restaurant owners who have got to know us Another relaxing week in the area using buses and land train just o/s the complex. New airport buses arriving at Arenal del Sol quite frequently now also visiting other places on route very helpful. Weather mixed end of April to beg May but all in all great. The market on the Thursday always good for bargains take the land train to Alto II stop and HfM at Centro Commercial good for clothing and other items. Used Consum and Mercadona supermarkets very good prices for everything. Plenty of coffee shops and other restaurants too there. Don't want to be back home and hope to revisit in the future - Maureen & Louise
We are delighted that you had a great holiday once again and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Great property. Great location.
Arrival greeting was great. Angie and Joe very helpful and knowledgable. Property very well equipped. Local restaurants were very good. Especially Mykas kitchen and Tres Besos. Only downside was local taxi service recommended. On the occasions we used this particular company they turned up with the fare already started at €7 to €9. Other companies we used did not. Otherwise a great holiday. Would always use HomeAway.
We are delighted that you both had a great time at our holiday home and hope to welcome you back again in the future.
