Alicante to Mar Menor - You can Still Find Cheap Property in Spain

The Murcia region in Spain benefits from some of the most beautiful coastlines of Europe. Nowhere else will you find so many fascinating contrasts - with Spanish Mediterranean architecture, magnificent mountain ranges and beautiful long sandy beaches. Real estate in Murcia is buoyant with many people from northern Europe looking for bargain property deals in Spain. Some choose to rent a home in Spain long term while they decide if they want a house in La Manga or one of the many golf properties in Spain. We have property for sale in El Campello, Spain as well as apartment sales in La Manga del Mar Menor. There are dream villas for sale in Spain to suit all tastes and budgets, we can arrange mortgages for buying property in Spain with both leading Spanish banks and the more familiar English banks that are represented here.

If you are looking for properties for sale in Spain, look no further than Villa Angels - your friendly real estate agent in Spain.

Costa Blanca South / Costa Calida

The Southern region of the Costa Blanca, differs vastly from the North. Where the mountains meet the coast in the North, the South provides a far flatter landscape with immense Salt Lakes dotted around the coastline. Some of these Lakes are operational and full of wildlife including the famous pink flamingos, and others have now become protected Natural Parks.

The beaches between Alicante and La Mata include some of the best in the whole region, for example, La Marina and Guardamar. The majority of the land in this area is protected with a vast expanse of pine forests separating the beaches and prohibiting further development making the area quite unique. There is a constant demand for property in the La Marina and Guardamar area and it is virtually impossible to find front line property on the beach side, however, there are still affordable new developments and resales just a few minutes drive away.

Just a little further down the coast and you will find yourself in the bustling town of Torrevieja. This is a busy town all year round and is home to many expatriates and Spanish nationals alike. Such are the facilities in Torrevieja, with everything you need on a day to day basis right on your doorstep, that many Spaniards choose the town for their own holidays ?they have also been known to call it a holiday town for foreign residents!

As with several coastal towns in the Costa Blanca, Torrevieja and the Orihuela Coast have areas where the properties are mainly owned by expatriates. Many people find comfort living amongst their fellow country men, whilst for others it is to be avoided. Due to the numbers of foreigners moving to this area, there are many international facilities available, international schools and multi-lingual hospitals and health care to name a few. Whether you want to live amongst a British / Non Spanish European community, or live as the nationals do but have the international services close by ? the choice is yours as both aspects are available.

Go past the Orihuela Coast and you will find yourself approaching the Costa Calida / Mar Menor. This is home to Europe's largest salt-water lagoon, with over 170 square kilometres of shallow water separated from the Mediterranean by a 13 mile peninsula known to most as La Manga. Along the coast of the Mar Menor you will find many small Spanish towns such as Los Alcazares and San Javier, where development of small residential areas are underway providing homes for both Spanish Nationals and foreigners.

One thing to note is that in all these areas there is an abundance of golf courses ? you are never more than 15-20 minute drive away wherever you are! Also, thanks to the motorway links you are never far away from home, whether you land in Murcia or Alicante.
