The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
The Costa Blanca is considered to be one of the most beautiful areas of Spain with its wide open plains to the south of Alicante and it's green and wooded mountains to the north of Alicante. The 'Comunidad Valenciana', one of the autonomous regions of Spain is steeped in history. Settlement by the Moors in this area of Spain several hundred years ago landscaped the mountains with stone edged terracing for growing almonds, olives, oranges, lemons and many other types of fruit trees. Many of the local fiestas - and there are hundreds! - hark back to historic times.
There are many well known coastal resorts along the Costa Blanca, including Denia, Altea, Benidorm, Torrevieja, but there is so much more to see if you care to venture a little inland. Steep hillside villages, the beautiful almond blossom during January/February, the scent of the orange flowers in the Spring, so much to explore. Whatever time of year there is always something to see and do. Or just relax!
There are more than a dozen golf courses within 30 minutes of the villa. Fonts de Algar, a natural waterfall with pools for cooling off is just a short drive away. Theme parks include Terra Mitica - easily a full day and very often offering two days for the price of one - will keep those seeking thrill rides very happy. Aqualandia and Aquanatura are two great water parks with steep water slides or more gentle river floats as well as play areas for younger children.
The city of Valencia is well worth a visit with the dry river bed making a lovely stroll leading down to the futuristic aquarium and museums. The old town with its cobbled streets, historic cathedral and art museums makes for an interesting cultural day out. Alicante is more than just an airport - great shopping in El Corte Ingles department stores and the many and varied boutique shops, a stroll along the seafront promenade admiring the multi million pound yachts, a walk round the walls of the Santa Barbara castle. Each village and town has a market day, be it general fruit and veg, clothing or the 'rastro' (selling all kinds of antiques, second hand goods and general junk!).
