We are looking to buy a home in Spain and have been looking to the Costa Blanca area, as we have been told we will get good value for money there, can anyone advise as to what the market is like in this area as we feel that we would like to live in this area, and not to the north.


I have lived in Spain for 10 years - both the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca. What do you mean "the north". Whereabouts are you thinking of as this is a huge area. Inland, by the Med, town, city, village etc?

Here to help

Thanks for getting back to me.

We have been looking around the Torrevieja area its nice but not quite what we had in mind for Spain. We are looking for more of a mix between the Spanish in all the expats, but not having a grease spoon on every corner if that makes sense, which is what this area has. We want more the Spanish way of life but still know that our country men are near by but not living in every house next to ours.

One of us has leart Spanish to a good level, we have our heart set on a 3 bed with pool and have good funds to buy it, its just that we may have been looing in the wrong area.

Thanks for any help you can give

Hi Charly
We have numerous properties in various Spanish towns and villages covering a wide area. If you have a look on the Torrevieja or Almoradi pages of this website and go to props for sale you can have a look and let me know if there is any of interest for you.
Kind regards
