Costa Blanca South covers the area between Alicante and the surrounding areas of Torrevieja. The World Health Organisation recognises the Costa Blanca climate as one of the best in the world, with winter months having almost as many sunny days as summer months. There are over 100kms of sandy beaches many of which have European Blue Flag and safe bathing certification.
The area has two nearby airports, Alicante in the north and Murcia in the south, and with a flight time of little more than two hours from UK airports, this wonderful area is almost as close as a UK holiday destination for most people.
But Costa Blanca South is not just for beach-based holidays. A short journey inland offers historical monuments, beautiful mountain scenery, old towns and villages with narrow streets containing bars and restaurants, allowing you to sit, relax and enjoy the all year-round wonderful climate. Costa Blanca South is also the ideal location for golf holidays with many high-quality courses in the area. Our rental properties are within 30 minutes travel to eight of these courses and within 50 minutes travel to fourteen.

For a Spanish feel, the towns of Los Montesinos and San Miguel des Salinas are only 10 minutes away. The famous Villamartin Plaza is less than 20 minutes away with many top class restaurants, excellent live entertainment and even English fish & chips! Those looking for sightseeing, sporting or tourist activities in the Costa Blanca will be spoilt for choice. You can pick from theme parks and nature reserves, enchanting caves and waterfalls to explore during your holiday.
