Welcome to the Albir “Gathering” which will take place on the 13th-15th November 2020 to replace the 2020 Albir Convention which sadly had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus.

We sincerely hope that our Spanish counterparts will also be able to join us, but we were particularly aware of those from outside Spain who had already booked their flights and hotel, and this gives you to the opportunity to reschedule your flights (free of charge with most airlines) and move your hotel reservations.

We hope you really enjoy your time at the beautiful beachfront 4-star Kaktus Albir Hotel on Spain’s stunning Costa Blanca with a November average daytime temperature of 20 degrees.  The hotel has again given us an excellent Full Board rate (which must be booked directly with the hotel).

And also, please do become a ‘Friend of the Convention’ by scrolling down to the form below and entering a few details (or go to the ‘Friends’ page) so we can email you updates as we continually add to the program.

This is when we AA’s who live or stay on the Costa Blanca offer to entertain our visiting AA friends and to show you some of the beautiful local attractions and sample some local food specialities on the way!

Costa Blanca

Welcome to the beautiful Costa Blanca!

There could hardly be a more attractive spot to have an AA Convention!  Based in the delightful small town of Albir in one of the most popular 4-star hotels on the Costa Blanca, the beach is just a few steps away from the hotel  and there are numerous high quality restaurants and cafes within yards.

While you are here we hope you take the time to visit some of the local attractions including the “Artist’s Paradise” town of Altea which is just a short bus or taxi ride away, and also a pleasant beachfront walk if you have a bit more time.

Benidorm is less than 5 miles away, and despite a reputation for a somewhat, ahem, lively clientele in its new town, Benidorm Old Town with its narrow streets and numerous tapas restaurants is well worth the experience..

Slightly further afield but not too far, Les Fonts de l’Algar and the unique Guadalest are popular destinations for anyone spending time in this stunningly beautiful part of Spain.
