This is your complete guide to life on the Spanish Costa Blanca.
We specialise in the northern Costa Blanca areas covering the coastal towns of Oliva, Denia, Javea, Moraira, Calpe, Altea, Benidorm and Villajoyosa, as well as the towns a little further inland such as Pego, Orba, Jalon, Benissa, Teulada, Benitachell and Finestrat. Although the information you will find within this site gives everything you need to know about living as an expat in any area of Spain.
We have a complete guide to the Spanish school system for those of you with children, a guide to the Spanish National Health system, contacts with lawyers on the Costa Blanca, properties for sale in Spain, a list of golf clubs and golf courses on the Costa Blanca, car hire in the Alicante region, a guide to the toxic plants found in the average Spanish garden, the wildlife you may encounter if you choose to live in the 'campo' - countryside in Spain; plus much more.
If you are thinking of moving to any region of Spain, it is important to find out the facts before you leave home. Many foreign citizens have chosen to make Spain their new home, bringing a lot of investment to the country with them - unfortunately, as with any afluent area, so too come the crooks. Security in Spain is very important. Be prepared. Don't be fooled by some 'decent looking' person who appears well meaning, as not all crooks have broken noses and look like the Godfather. Find out the facts from the experts who are totally impartial to your situation. Remember learning is not only for kids.
Also included in the site are the standard items found in other web sites on the Costa Blanca such as Spanish fiesta calendars, and local business listings.
