How do I find a place to live in Altea?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"One way to find a place to live in Altea is to search online for rental listings. There are many websites that offer listings for apartments, houses, and other types of rental properties in Altea. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who specialize in the area to help you find a suitable place to live. You can also look for rental postings in local newspapers and on bulletin boards in the area. Finally, you can ask friends and family who live in Altea for recommendations," said one person in Altea.

"I first rented in Casco Antiguo, scenic old town. I was glad I did, as the noise and vibration of the twice hourly tram travelling though a tunnel nearby my place, led me to move to another area in Casco Antiguo, just near the heart of the action. I suggest you go to the place you are considering at various times of day to check out things like noise, neighbors and neighborhood, etc," said one expat who made the move to Altea.
