In the Costa Blanca you will find daring modern architecture, amazing diversity, sophisticated cities, postcard beaches, fantastic weather with about 320 sunny days a year; a sleepy countryside festooned with citrus and olive groves; delicious seafood, potato tortilla, tapas, and not to forget the paella which is THE typical food in the Valencia community; delectable sangria, and choice of wine from the best wineries in Alicante and Jumilla.
The climate here is very diverse. Around the Mediterranean, summers are hot and dry, while winters are mild. Inland and in the higher areas it is colder and it might even come some snow in the winter.
Remember: if you have only seen the coastal areas, then you can’t even imagine what you’ve been missing of the “real” Spain in the rest of the Costa Blanca. Tourism is very important to the economy, and those in the hospitality industry long ago settled on a homogenous tourist “package,” to suit the tastes of the annual sun-seekers, who continue to flock to the seaside resorts every year. More and more of these tourists turn into purchasers of an apartment, a villa or a golf property after their visit in the area.
Spanish people enjoy one of the best lifestyles and quality of life in Europe, or, indeed, in the world. The Spanish are known for their close family ties, their love of children and their respect for the elderly.
Additionally, traveling within the area is easy: there are international airports in Valencia, Alicante and Murcia, and connections are very frequent. Buses are reasonable, and serve destinations all over Europe; trains are fast, though a bit pricey, and also link countries throughout Europe. In the Costa Blanca you will find excellent roads and motorways with a speed limit of 120km/h.
WHO (The World Health Organization) claims that in the Costa Blanca you live in the healthiest place in the world. This because of the climate, the clean air, and the healthy eating with seafood, bread, olive oil, some red wine, vegetables and fruit.
To live in the Costa Blanca, either permanently or for some weeks or months during the year, are very beneficial for people with certain health problems, like rheumatism, arthritis, psoriasis and more.
Properties are reasonably priced in the Costa Blanca and it is still possible to make a bargain compared to other popular coastal areas in Spain.
