Malaga is the capital city and is a vibrant, lively place full of history and a wonderful place to visit.

Benahavis is an ancient mountain village that happened to have large expanses of land within its boundaries. 5 beautiful sprawling Golf Courses now occupy the area preserving the green countryside and providing the most spectacular views to local residents, not to mention the great investment opportunity for Golfing holidays.

The Costa Blanca reached popularity later than the Costa del Sol and as such cashed in on the clients that could no longer afford the Costa del Sol. It is the true Mediterraneancoast along the east of Spain and enjoys a broadly similar climate to the south of Spain.

Valencia is Spain's third largest city. A stunning place with a beautiful centre, full of parks and wonderful cafes, bars and restaurants. The ancient Bull Ring on the centre hosts many concerts and other events. What was once a river has been turned into a huge and never ending park that creeps through the city. EL Barrio del Carmen provides an area that by day is full of shops and cafes, restaurants and by night becomes a playground of "Pubs" (bars with music and dancing) and Discotecas where trendy young Spaniards party well into the following morning!

Denia is a small and ancient city dating back to before the Roman times. Primarily a fishing port famous for the Denia Red Prawn, a local delicacy and located in the foothills of the mighty Montgo Mountain, the tallest mountain directly on the Mediterranean beach. Famous for food Denia is a local focus point with local chefs competing for Michelin stars and a yearly food festival along the Marineta beach.

Javea, the other side of the Montgo Mountain is another beautiful village that has been tastefully extended thanks to the arrival of second home buyers from abroad. It has a beautiful promenade along its Arenal beach lined with bars ad restaurants looking out over the golden sand and palm trees. A great place for a tasteful and relaxing holiday.

Benidorm - the crazy party capital of the Costa Blanca. A truly 24 hour party place that caters for all!

Alicante is the capital city, known as the City of the Light. Something special happens there, it feels like the sun shines differently there. The Castillo de Santa Barbara overlooks and keeps watch over the city, a trip up there revealing spectacular views all the way up and down the Costa Blanca. The sprawling streets at the foot of the castle give home to the very finest tapas bars and restaurants making it another Must Visit place.

Torrevieja is located in the flatlands south of Alicante. The famous Salt Lakes are inhabited by migrating Flamingos. Densely populated area thanks to the price of the land during the 1980s, it is basically completely built and neighbouring villages are now enjoying the property boom. The most economical properties of the area enjoy proximity to the same beautiful Mediterranean beaches and sunshine as everywhere in Spain.
