TYPICAL DISHES OF THE COSTA BLANCA

Typical dishes of the Costa Blanca

THE BEST DISHES ON THE COSTA BLANCA

 

At Costa Cálida Promotores we not only build homes with the best materials, the most modern and respectful techniques and the most meticulous finishes. At Costa Cálida Promotores we also choose the best places to live. Communications, services, beach, sun… and the best typical dishes.

Because if the Costa Blanca is famous for anything, apart from its picture-postcard villages (as we saw in this article), it is for its gastronomy. A gastronomy with thousands of years of history, based on the Mediterranean diet and with the products of the sea at the heart of its creations (without forgetting the vegetables harvested in the huerta). A sea rich in fish and seafood, from which the freshest and most flavourful delicacies are obtained.


Are you thinking of coming to live on the Costa Blanca?

Well, don’t think twice, because you’ll be able to enjoy typical dishes like this.


ARROZ A BANDA

 

Arroz a banda
The rice dish with the most sea flavour on the Costa Blanca

 

Rice from the Comunidad Valenciana is famous around the world. But the dishes that can be prepared with it go far beyond the well-known paella. Such as arroz a banda, a typical fisherman’s dish, made with fish stock, seafood, ñora (a spicy dried pepper) and served with the famous alioli sauce, an emulsion of olive oil and garlic. A perfect dish to enjoy on the seashore and with a good piece of homemade bread.

 

PARRILLADA DE MARISCO

 

Parrillada de marisco
The best grilled seafood for sharing

 

Without leaving seafood, a dish that is a must try on the Costa Blanca is the parrillada de marisco (grilled seafood). A simple dish but one that impresses with its flavour and variety. It consists of a large platter full of all kinds of seafood (prawns, langoustines, lobsters…) cooked on the grill with salt, garlic, parsley and olive oil. One of the most Mediterranean mixes you can try.

Tip: if you want to enjoy the authentic parrillada de marisco of the Costa Blanca, you have to go to Calpe.

 

FIDEUÁ

 

Fideuá
The essence of paella made from thick pasta noodles

 

Originally from Gandía, this plate is very similar to a paella or a typical rice dish. The main difference lies in its basic ingredient: rice is replaced by thick pasta noodles that absorb all the flavours of the cooking broth. As with arroz a banda, it is usually prepared with fish stock, seafood, vegetables and the essential alioli sauce. A dish that may seem strange at first sight, but has a unique flavour and texture.

 

PERICANA

 

Pericana
The most original salad on the Costa Blanca

 

This is a typical recipe from the inland villages of the province of Alicante. It consists of a mixture of olive oil, dried peppers and salted fish. It is ideal to eat with bread or to accompany other dishes, as it can be considered a salted fish salad. It is undoubtedly one of the most authentic dishes that combines the great tradition of the huerta and the sea.

 

BORRETA

 

Borreta
The best Alicante stew topped with an egg

 

Another typical Alicante creation that combines land and sea. Borreta is a stew with potatoes, spinach, ñoras and salted fish. Perfect for winter days after a long walk through the inland areas of the Costa Blanca. As an extra, a poached egg is usually added per person.

 

OLLETA

 

Olleta
The ideal meal to get your strength back on winter days.

 

We continue with perfect dishes for the coldest days of winter. It is considered a unique meal, as the mixture of ingredients is one of the most complete you can find. Olleta has: rice, vegetables, legumes, pork ribs, bacon, onion and ñora. There are hundreds of variations on this recipe (even a vegan version without meat), but with one thing in common: a couple of spoonfuls, and you will recover all your strength.

 

As you can see, the Costa Blanca is much more than beautiful villages, dream beaches, rugged terrain and an enviable weather. The Costa Blanca is also a temple of the most traditional Mediterranean gastronomy, where the huerta and the sea go hand in hand in every meal to create intense and healthy flavours.

Because the gastronomy of the Costa Blanca is not just cuisine, it is a way of life.

BUY A NEW SELF-SUFFICIENT HOUSE

buy a self-sufficient house

Do you want to buy a new self-sufficient house?

At Costa Cálida Promotores we are very aware of the impact that construction can have on the environment. That is why our developments take into account respect for the environment. An environment that is part of our lives, and that we have to take care of as what it is: something unique.

We have already talked about the advantages of new construction over second-hand housing. One of these advantages was the modernity of materials and construction techniques; the more modern, the more efficient.

Unfortunately, not all homes have been built with the planet in mind. That is why we have decided to write this post, to show that, with a minimum of investment, and even without spending a single euro, you can achieve a sustainable home without sacrificing quality of life.

Do you dare to be more sustainable with a self-sufficient house? We explain its advantages.

 

THE IDEAL TEMPERATURE

A home is a place where we feel safe, where we pour our personality into creating spaces that define us. We also want these spaces to be pleasant. And the main way to do this is through temperature. A temperature that we achieve by different means. But be careful! An abuse or a headless temperature control can lead to a resource-devouring home, which is equal to a money-devouring one.

Let’s review some tips on how to achieve the ideal temperature without wrecking the environment and your wallet:

 

INSULATING WINDOWS: perhaps the most important point. A well-insulated house is an efficient house. That is why it is always advisable to have insulated windows that protect us from the inclemency of the weather, as well as freeing us from annoying external noise. This point requires investment, if you don’t already have it, but it is a profitable investment. Why? Because that heating that you used to use in spring or autumn will no longer be necessary with good insulating windows. Less expenditure = more savings.

 

EFFICIENT HEATING: both in terms of system and use. And yes, we are mentioning points that require investment, but they are investments that are amortised in a very short time, as well as respecting the environment.

As far as the system is concerned, it is important to choose which one we want to acclimatise our home. Let’s take an example: a radiator system usually works by heating water to around 60 or 70 degrees Celsius, while an underfloor heating system works at between 30 and 50 degrees Celsius. See the difference?

In terms of use, we all like to wear our shorts indoors while the blizzard rages outside. But does it pay off? It doesn’t. The best thing to do is to keep the house at a stable temperature that allows you to wear light, but not summer clothes. Turning the thermostat up and down is no good either. And, above all, turn the heating on according to your day-to-day life. Turning it on at 50 degrees Celsius because you have woken up and are going to take a shower to go outside is not the most advisable thing to do.

 

LIKE THE ANCENTRAS: in areas where it is very hot in summer, there is something basic that will prevent sweating and save you money: the cave effect. What does it do? Very simple: open all the windows in the house when the outside temperature is more pleasant (night, dawn…) and close them, with the blinds down or the curtains drawn, when the heat is on. Remember the insulated windows? They work wonders here. They keep in the coolness that we have let in, insulating us from the hell that is raging outside.

 

DO THE SAME WITH LESS WATER

It may seem utopian, but it can be done. There are a multitude of parts and accessories on the market that can turn our taps into water-saving machines. How? By reducing the flow that comes out of them.

This does not mean that we have to go from a thick fist-sized jet of water to a trickle of water that barely wets the toothbrush. Most attachments of this type use a clever mix of water and air to reduce the flow rate without affecting the power output. It sounds like science fiction, but it’s just science.

 

BRAND NEW IS NOT A LUXURY

 

We are talking about household appliances. Maybe that oven or washing machine that came with the house ten years ago is still working perfectly, but have you ever stopped to think about the extra expense you have every month? And about the new technologies that you are not taking advantage of? Nowadays, even household appliances are smart! That’s why an old appliance, even if it is functional, is an economic burden that also harms the environment. Consider a renovation, even if it’s in stages.

 

PUT A BRAIN IN YOUR HOME

Or in other words: make it smart. By means of new technologies, we can gain complete control over everything that happens in our home. Smart light bulbs, smart sockets, smart curtains… Humans are determined to make everything smart, and we must take advantage of them.

By means of mobile or computer applications, all these intelligent components can be put at the service of efficiency and savings. We can activate or deactivate them according to our life. And they can even make life easier for us by activating them minutes before we enter our home.

If technology allows us to have complete control, why not take advantage of it?

 

YOUR FRIEND THE SUN

Years ago, having a solar panel was more declarative than functional; the energy collection was not efficient, the price was very high and legislation was confusing. Today, a solar panel is as affordable as a high-end television. And if you are fortunate enough to live in an area like the Costa Cálida, where the sun hardly ever hides, the benefits are enormous.

Why pay for polluting energy when we have all the energy we want from the sun?

 

PUT A BRAIN IN YOUR HEAD

Because not everything is limited to turning your home into a kind of sustainable technological god. If you don’t do your bit, what’s the point of all the investment? Be consistent with your energy expenditure and resource consumption. If you pay attention, you’ll find that you can do the same thing while consuming less. And for goodness sake, recycle! Almost all packaging now has a colour code to show you which bin to throw it in – we don’t even have to think about it! Dedicate two tiles in your house to bins for the different types of waste. The planet will thank you, and you’ll sleep better. We promise.

 

As you can see, there are many ways to make your home more environmentally sustainable as well as efficient, which has a direct impact on your savings. Take a good look at the characteristics of your home and start implementing the measures we have mentioned in this article. Together, let’s make the planet a better place to live!

COSTA BLANCA VILLAGES

buy houses on the costa blanca

There are many reasons to live on the Costa Blanca, as we mentioned in this article. But one of the most important, without a doubt, is its towns and villages. There are hundreds of places to discover on the Costa Blanca, and all of them tell a little piece of Spanish and world history.

That is why Costa Cálida Promotores is going to review the most emblematic places to visit in the southeast of Spain. But first, a bit of context.

WHAT IS THE COSTA BLANCA

Costa Blanca
The Costa Blanca has some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Spain.

The Costa Blanca is the name given to the coastline in the province of Alicante in southeastern Spain, one of the regions with the best climate on the Iberian Peninsula. It stretches from Denia in the north to Pilar de la Horadada in the south. 244km of beaches, coves and cliffs.

And why is it called Costa Blanca? As we will see later, most of the villages in this area paint the facades of their buildings white. As the sun hits the houses, the villages glow, making the whole area look like a white coast from the air.

But the towns in this part of southeastern Spain are much more than white walls. They play with history, with the ancient and the modern, without forgetting the natural landscapes that range from the eternal beaches of fine sand to the most rugged corners of the mountains.

Places like the ones we are going to see below (although there are many more).

 

ALTEA

Altea
Altea, one of the most beautiful villages on the Costa Blanca

It is considered by many to be the most beautiful village on the Costa Blanca. Overlooking the sea and with a fishing tradition, Altea stands out for its whitewashed houses and cobbled streets that form postcards to stroll through. In the same day you can visit all the tourist attractions of this town: the promenade and the port, the old town, the Garden of the Senses, the Orthodox Church, the walled remains, the church of Nuestra Señora del Consuelo

To visit Altea is to be surprised at every step, as this fishing village hides in its streets as much history as beauty. If you are on the Costa Blanca, you have to visit it. If you don’t, you will have wasted your trip.

 

CALPE

Peñón de Ifach
The Peñón de Ifach in Calpe is one of the most impressive natural structures on the Costa Blanca.

Calpe is another of the most beautiful towns on the Costa Blanca. The best known image is the Peñón de Ifach, a 332-metre high mountain that has become a natural park thanks to its bio-diversity. But there are more things to see in Calpe, such as the salt flats, the Baños de la Reina, a Roman archaeological site on the seashore, the Roman Baths, the Torre Molí del Morelló, an Arab windmill, the 15th century walls of the old town and a thousand other secrets.

To go to Calpe is to be fascinated by nature, history and gastronomy.

 

DENIA

Denia's castle
Denia’s castle over the marina

Without leaving the coast, we travel to Denia, a city that dates back to Roman times. With so many years behind it, it is not difficult to guess that its streets and corners are full of stories from all eras, such as the Torrecremada Park, the Fish Market and Drassanes, the Fishermen’s Quarter, the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (located in an old air raid shelter from the Spanish Civil War)…

But, without a doubt, the place that stands out most in Denia is its castle, located on a hill that rises up from the heart of the town and built in the Islamic period. Its views and the stories it conceals make it a must-see for any tourist.

 

TABARCA

Tabarca Island
Tabarca Island is the only inhabited island on the Costa Blanca.

One of the most peculiar enclaves on the Costa Blanca. Located nine kilometres from the coast, this small village is the only inhabited island in the area. Remains from Roman times have been found on its land, and it was permanently inhabited in the 18th century. It has a medieval wall in perfect condition, cobbled streets, white-walled houses and beaches and coves with turquoise waters that more than invite you to swim, they force you to do so.

If you are on the Costa Blanca, you have to swim in Tabarca.

 

VILLAJOYOSA

Villajoyosa
The colourful fishermen’s quarter of Villajoyosa is one of its greatest charms.

In rivalry with Altea for being the most beautiful town on the Costa Blanca, this town has existed since Roman times. Villajoyosa is famous for perhaps two main reasons: its Moors and Christians fiestas, where historic battles are reenacted on land and sea, and its gastronomy, which has gained international recognition thanks to its deep-rooted fishing tradition and the numerous gastronomic events that take place in its streets.

Another highlight of Villajoyosa is to be found in its hanging houses, buildings that defy gravity over the Amadorio river. But perhaps its most outstanding feature is the Fishermen’s Quarter, located next to the port and with the facades of the buildings painted in different colours. A visual note that makes the town a must-see.

 

JÁVEA

Jávea
Jávea’s natural environment is one of its main attractions.

Like almost all the towns on the Costa Blanca, Jávea has a cobbled old town centre and white-walled houses that will delight any tourist, not forgetting its Playa del Arenal and its extensive marina. But the most famous element of this town is not in the streets, but in the surroundings.

Jávea has some of the most stunning natural spots on the Costa Blanca. Places such as the Granadella cove or the Montgó Natural Park, which includes places such as the lighthouse of San Antonio cape, the Cova Tallada, the Molins de la Plana or the sea caves that can be visited from the sea.

 

GUADALEST

Guadalest
The medieval village of Guadalest is the best way to travel back to medieval times.

Somewhat lesser known internationally, this beautiful village has retained all its medieval essence. Perched on a rise in an inland valley in the province of Alicante, this historic gem boasts a castle that seems to rise out of the mountain, streets and houses perched on steep cliffs, and views that stretch for miles around.

If you want to feel history in its purest essence, you have to visit Guadalest.

As you can see, the Costa Blanca is home to places that are striking for their beauty and history. But the Costa Blanca is much more than towns and cities, as we will see in future articles. So be sure to visit our blog to discover a thousand more secrets.

Do you need more reasons to come and live in this piece of paradise? You have them in our homes! In Costa Cálida Promotores we understand and respect the environment, building houses that fit perfectly with the history and beauty of the Costa Blanca. You can visit them on our website.

Don’t miss the opportunity to live life!

7 DECORATING TIPS FOR YOUR HOME

7 DECORATING TIPS FOR YOUR HOME

We have read about the benefits of the Costa Cálida and have decided to move here. Knowing the advantages of new builds over second hand properties, we decided to buy a beautiful house facing the sea, with breathtaking views. Wonderful!

Here and now our new life begins.

But, wait a minute… The house has exquisite finishes, but it is still a set of walls with a floor and a roof. How can we turn it into something living and welcoming that represents us? How can we turn a building into our home?

In this article we are going to review some of the best tips when it comes to decorating a home, from the beginning to the end, as if we were deciding which image to capture on a canvas.

An analogy that is not far from reality.

 

DON’T RUSH TO BUY

Before you spend a single penny, research decorating websites and look for ideas on places like Pinterest. Not only will you save time, but you might just stumble across that style that you didn’t know existed and that represents you. But beware: you may find an eye-catching trend that you want to incorporate but which, over time, becomes tired or non-functional. Don’t forget that you are building a home, not a decor. At this stage the most important thing is to accumulate ideas that fit into a set that you feel comfortable with.

 

CHOOSE WISELY

When it comes to decorating and furnishing a home, you have to be realistic. You may love having a giant 100-seater sofa to invite 99 friends over. But on a day-to-day basis, is that sofa functional? If you are a very social person who will always have guests over, create a space for those gatherings, but don’t let those gatherings take away from your living space. In the end, you are the one who will be spending most of your time in the house. Think about the routines you have and what furniture and décor can fit into them. Don’t get carried away with special occasions and consider your day-to-day life.

 

TAKE AN INVENTORY

Everything you would like to have that fits your lifestyle and your home space. Don’t leave anything out yet. Write down items without fear. This step is like a birthday letter: I want it all! If you like, to make the next step easier, create a notation that reflects your priority for each item. This will make it easier to eliminate them later.

 

STICK TO A BUDGET

Now comes the moment of reality. Determine the budget you’re going to have. Compare it to the total price of the list – can you afford it? Great! If not, don’t worry. Remember that we’ve listed everything we liked without looking at anything else. Eliminate the items that can wait. And don’t forget the second-hand market. You can find stuff that will drive you crazy. Plus, an antique or worn touch can add a dash of originality to your design.

 

DESIGN WITH A HEAD

Now it’s time to get to work. First of all, get an eraser and a pencil. Now, make a drawing of the house, from above, as if it were a blueprint, and play with the elements that have survived the previous sifting. Create spaces and vary the elements by drawing them as closely as possible to the real thing. Not convinced? Remember the eraser and try something else, without forgetting that we are looking for functionality. Leave space for your day-to-day life. And, something very important: make the most of natural light. You will get a more beautiful and cosy home without having to spend half a budget on lamps.

 

ILLUMINATES THE COLOURS

Do you already have a detailed plan of your new home? Perfect! Now it’s time to choose the colours and lighting. This step is very personal, as everyone has their own preferences and what one person loves may be horrifying to another. Be true to your taste. It might be good to take another look at sites like Pinterest for inspiration and to test out, in real life, combinations you have in your head. And remember: subtle lighting can create stunning effects.

 

HUMANISES DESIGN

Finally, and most importantly, don’t make your home look like a picture in a design magazine. Decoration and lighting can make your home an amazing place, but it is still a home. Give it your personal touch. Put up photos of your travels, of your family. Hang memories that remind you of times and people past and present. In short, make the work of art you have designed your own. And, above all, enjoy your new life, because you deserve it.

 

Be sure to take a look at the promotions that we currently have active. Duplexes, triplexes, bungalows, villas… The house you want is waiting for you on the Costa Blanca! All you need to do is come and make it yours with these tips we have given you.

ADVANTAGES OF BUYING NEW HOMES

Advantages of buying new homes

ADVANTAGES OF BUYING NEW HOMES

 

When buying a home, one of the first decisions we have to make is the following: new or second-hand? Without a doubt, the safest and most reliable choice is the first one.

In this article, we are going to explain the most important points that make buying a new home a safe bet, as opposed to the uncertainty generated by second-hand homes, of which we can only know what the owners tell us and what we see at first glance.

Getting a home should not be left to chance.

 

CHOOSING YOUR OWN HOME

When you buy a newly built house, you are usually buying it as part of a residential complex. This means that it will be several houses that differ from each other in small details. This variety is the main benefit of buying new: you can choose, within a style, which home best suits you and your family. Perhaps you are more interested in a duplex than a bungalow, or you want to have all the space of a triplex or a villa.

When you buy new, you choose what type of building you will live in for the rest of your life.

 

WATCHING YOUR HOME GROW

 

Another advantage of a new build, if you buy it during the construction phase, is that you can see how it is born and grows. This will give you certainty about the materials and construction techniques that will be applied, and you will have the utmost certainty that everything has been done to the quality standards you expect in a new build.

But whether you see how it is built or not, there is one thing that will always happens in a new build purchase: you will be the one who opens the home for the first time. No one will have been there before, which means that the materials and finishes will be as good as the first day, ready to welcome you and your loved ones.

 

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

 

It is undeniable that building technologies and materials are advancing in quality and features as time goes by. Therefore, buying a newly built home will ensure one thing: that the home will be energy efficient. You will spend less money maintaining the house, and temperatures will be more pleasant in both summer and winter. Something that, if you had to achieve in a second-hand home, would cost you a lot of money in renovations. Renovations that, sometimes, could not even be carried out.

 

A HOME THAT REPRESENTS YOU

 

Another advantage of new construction is in the interior design. As the first owner, you will be the one to dictate how the house will look on the inside. You will be able to distribute the spaces to your liking, placing the furniture that best suits your philosophy of life. You will not have to remove used furniture, nor will you have to cover up holes made by other people.

With a newly built home, you will have a blank canvas on which to express your personality.

 

A LONG-TERM INVESTMENT

 

Undoubtedly, one of the most outstanding advantages. Newly built housing is not an expense, but an investment. When you buy it at the time of construction, its value will remain unchanged, and will even be increased by the development of the environment. You will be the first to acquire a property that, in the future, will be priced well above its initial price.

And that gives a lot of peace of mind.

 

NO HIDDEN SURPRISES

 

Another fundamental point of the new construction. You will not depend on the trust of the old owners to know that the property you are buying has no habitability problems. As it is a new construction, it is the promoter who guarantees that the construction meets all quality standards and that you will never have any problems of any kind.

It is like buying a car. A second-hand car can be checked by an independent mechanic, but we still don’t know how much use it has actually been put to. With a new car, the dealer guarantees you for years knowing that you will be the first owner.

 

WITH PEOPLE LIKE YOU

 

Perhaps one of the points that is least considered when purchasing a property, but undoubtedly one of the most important in the long term.

When you buy a new home, you will be doing the same as all the other tenants in the residential complex. And you will be doing it at the same time. And almost certainly for the same reasons (facilities, qualities, surroundings…). This will make the profile of your new neighbours very similar to your own, which will create an immediate affinity.

Furthermore, unlike with second-hand homes, you will not be arriving at a closed community that already knows each other. In this case, you will be creating a community from scratch, where you will all be equal and determined to make the residential the most wonderful place in the world to live.

 

SUMMARY

 

There are many advantages to buying a new home as opposed to buying second-hand. There will always be factors that can tip the balance towards one side or the other, but at Costa Cálida Promoters we are committed to homes that are owned from the moment the last coat of paint is applied. This is the only way to ensure that what you buy is what you get.

Be sure to take a look at the promotions we have active at the moment. Duplexes, triplexes, bungalows, villas… And all located in the best enclave of the Spanish peninsula (you can discover the benefits of the Spanish southeast in our previous article).

Your new home awaits you on the Costa Blanca!

ADVANTAGES OF LIVING ON THE COSTA BLANCA

Living on the costa blanca

ADVANTAGES OF LIVING ON THE COSTA BLANCA

When purchasing a property, there are several aspects to take into account, although they can be reduced to two: quality of construction and quality of the environment.

At Costa Cálida Promotores we are committed to both aspects. The 35 years of satisfaction of our clients guarantee the quality of our constructions, where only the highest quality elements are incorporated into the projects. But what about the environment, why is the Costa Blanca one of the most desirable destinations worldwide?

Here are just a few of the reasons, but there are many more.

CLIMATE

In this region of south-eastern Spain, residents can benefit from more than 300 days of sunshine a year. In addition, the average annual temperature is a pleasant 18 degrees centigrade, allowing residents to enjoy their surroundings any day of the year. Without a doubt, we are talking about a privileged climate without extreme variations, perfect for enjoying not only the home, but also the nature and history that surrounds it.

GASTRONOMY

Undoubtedly one of the most charming spots on the Costa Blanca. Benefiting from the principles of the famous Mediterranean Diet, the food in this area is as varied as its landscapes and its history. Paella and rice with crust, the delicious caldero del Mar Menor, zarangollo, which makes the most of the best products from the Huerta, meat pies...

There are so many dishes that can only be tasted on the Costa Blanca that it would be crazy to list them all. All we can do is remind you of their properties and benefits:

  • Made with local products.
  • Following the principles of the Mediterranean Diet.
  • Made on the spot with recipes that have stood the test of time.

Without a doubt, the gastronomy of the Costa Blanca is something worth coming for, and one of the reasons to stay.

SPORTING ACTIVITIES

Thanks to the varied environment enjoyed by the Costa Blanca, residents can enjoy every imaginable nautical activity. Activities range from the most recreational ones in safe environments such as the Mar Menor, to the most demanding water sports that are practised all along the coast, including dives in the Cabo de Palos Marine Reserve, one of the world’s most popular places of pilgrimage for diving enthusiasts.

In addition, the Costa Blanca, thanks to the climate and the environment it offers, has some of the best golf courses in Europe, where the kings of this sport have been seen, both training and competing. Not forgetting, of course, the thousands of routes scattered throughout the territory that allow, safely, activities such as hiking, cycling, climbing and any activity that can be done outdoors.

 

HISTORY

In the surroundings of the Costa Blanca, history can still be experienced thanks to the preservation of a legacy that spans thousands of years and that is spread throughout every city and town in the area. Monuments such as the Roman Theatre in Cartagena (one of the best preserved in the world), the Palace of Baron Benifayó in San Pedro del Pinatar, the Torre de la Mata in Torrevieja, the Fortress of the Sun in Lorca and the Castle of San Juan in Águilas make the Costa Blanca a cultural environment where you can discover something new every day.

This is possible thanks to one of the most complete cultural offers in Europe and a network of museums and monuments in continuous expansion. Not forgetting the dozens of popular festivals that recreate historical events, many of which have been declared of National and International Tourist Interest.

 

COMMUNICATIONS

There is no point in having the best postcards if, in order to reach them, you have to live a thousand dangerous adventures. On the Costa Blanca nothing like that happens. As well as being a completely safe environment, it has a wide network of communications by land, air and sea, with the possibility of choosing two international airports to travel to: Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport and the Region de Murcia International Airport.

In addition, thanks to the privileged configuration of the terrain, the diverse environments of the Costa Blanca are accessible within a few hours’ drive, favouring one-day tourist getaways. So, perhaps tomorrow you will decide to photograph the birds of the salt flats at sunset, and the next day you will go to discover hidden paths in the forests of Sierra Espuña.

SUMMARY

The Costa Blanca offers you a natural and cultural display like nowhere else in the world, with histories that date back thousands of years, amazing landscapes on your doorstep, a privileged climate and a unique, varied and healthy gastronomy.

To make the most of such a beautiful place, Costa Cálida Promotores offers you the best buildings in dream locations, always respecting the environment.
