The light of this region has given the Coast its name; a white light,
transparent, brilliant but not dazzling,
which was previously appreciated by its first settlers: Alicante, the capital,
was Akra Leuka for the Greeks (white
citadel) and Lucentum for the Romans (city of light).
This region of Spain boasts 325 sunny days each year with temperatures ranging
from an average of 16°
centigrade in winter, to 32° centigrade in summer, which ensure that you are
able to enjoy life to the full. The
Northern Costa Blanca, where the mountains meet the sea, offers some of the
most breathtaking scenery in the
whole of Spain. The area is full of lush vegetation with citrus, almond and
olive groves growing in abundance.
The region is shielded from the colder winter winds of the interior by these
mountain ranges. Because of
these attributes the area is acknowledged by the World Health Authority as one
of the healthiest areas in the world
to live today.

When enquiring PLEASE PROVIDE A TELEPHONE NUMBER. E-mail is not 100% reliable, so without a phone number our clients have no alternative means of contacting you. Enquiries go straight to the owner of the rental or property for sale . . . so if you are enquiring about more than one rental villa or apartment for sale or rent, please send an enquiry individually relating to each property. Except for pages for a minority of clients, your enquiry is not going to a letting agency for all the properties in a region - you are booking direct with the owner . . . and for the reason below, we feel that you can have confidence in doing so.
As webmasters we are not acting as agents but are publishing what our clients have asked us to market for them.
We expect that you should have a good experience buying a property for sale or booking a holiday rental through our clients, and if you don't (very rare), we like to hear about it! We beleive that you can have confidence in booking your holiday with our clients.
