Perched on the hillside 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) above Benidorm is the picturesque Spanish village of Finestrat. It is neatly nestled into coastal side of the mountain range of The Sierra Cortina with its highest peak Puig Campana reaching an impressive 1410 metres (4630 ft). The village is easily accessed by road and is just a short 5 minute drive from the main AP-7 motorway or the main coastal road, the N-332. It is also just 55km from Alicante Airport. Whilst the old town is located slightly inland, the nearest golden sandy beach at Cala de Finestrat is only a 10 minutes drive away. The beach area of Cala de Finestrat is bordered to the South by the peaceful and picturesque beach resort of La Villa Joiosa with its multicoloured tuscan style beachfront houses and to the North by the vibrant city of Benidorm.
Just a few kilometres below the old town is the Sierra Cortina Golf & Country Club where you will find a large number of stylish new developments. Properties on offer here include luxury, contemporary design, detached villas with pools as well as small, stylish, low-rise, apartment complexes with communal pools and leisure facilities.

Set in-amongst beautiful pine-tree woodland with parks, picnic areas, walking tracks and cycle routes it is still close enough to easily access the beaches, services, shopping centres and of course the famous nightlife of Spain's most famous holiday resort. It is also within 5 minutes drive of a wide range of other tourist attractions including the Terra Mitica Theme Park, Aqua Natura Water Park, Sierra Cortina Spa & Sports Club and The La Marina Shopping & Leisure Centre.
