Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Set in a converted 500-year-old villa in Benissa’s pretty old town, owners Charles and Aleks have sensitively and stylishly renovated No.4 Benissa to create a small but perfectly formed boutique hotel. Both boasting a background in architecture and design, their skills are plain to see; the building’s cool stone walls and original tosca arches off-set with designer light fittings and contemporary prints and tiling.
It's worth noting that this is an adults-only property (over 16 years).
Fuel your day with a scrumptious continental breakfast, where you can sample traditional specialities such as aioli, freshly-baked local breads, cheeses, croissants and freshly-squeezed orange juice.
Later in the day, head to the bar for a glass of excellent local wine. While there is no restaurant on site, there are some great spots nearby and, foodies themselves, the lovely owners will happily point you in the right direction.
There are just four rooms here, each individually designed but all elegant and extremely comfortable with good beds and crisp, modern bathrooms.
We’d recommend hiring a car to be able to best explore the area with plenty of lovely beaches nearby, but it’s also a popular area for cyclists if you’re feeling sprightly. Bike hire and horse riding are available (must be booked in advance) and the lovely staff are happy to help with information on nearby watersports, fishing, cycle routes and more.
Set in the pedestrianised zone of Benissa’s old town (one of the oldest in Costa Blanca), picturesque views and sweet streets await. The town boasts stunning architecture, plenty of shops and a fun Saturday morning market.
Beach-goers will be spoilt for choice in the area: La Fustera and Moraira are both a 15-minute drive away, while the more rugged Ambola beach is around 30-minutes away.
