Costa Blanca, Costa Calida & Costa Del Sol Regions

Spain is situated in south west Europe having a population of around 46.2 million people covering an area of 505,992 square kilometres, making this the 3rd largest country in Europe. This area is known as the Iberian Peninsula, sharing its borders with Portugal to the west, France and Andorra to the northeast and the British dominion of Gibraltar and Morocco in the south. The country?s administrative system is more complex than that of other European countries. Spain is divided into 17 regions referred to as autonomous communities, which in turn encompass a total of 50 provinces. Besides its mainland territory, Spain comprises more than fifteen offshore islands which are intensely visited by tourists, among the most popular being The Balearic and Canary Islands. Spain is an active member of the European Union and NATO. The official currency of Spain since January 1st 2002 is the Euro.
The Costa Blanca has two distinctive areas, Costa Blanca North and Costa Blanca South. The Northern part of the Costa Blanca features seaside towns and resorts such as Dénia, J%E1vea and Moraira to the far North. Further south, bigger more bustling resorts like Altea, Calpe, Benidorm, Alicante and Torrevieja attract millions of tourists annually. Valencia is Spains third largest city after Madrid and Barcelona.
The Costa Blanca enjoys a typical subtropical mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold north winds in winter. The area averages 2,700 hours of sunshine each year and the average annual temperature comfortably exceeds 20 degrees. In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world ? neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination.
White sandy beaches, warm mediterranean climate, a slower healthier pace of life, cheaper cost of living, easy accessibility to and from the UK and very affordable property prices all contribute to consider the Costa Blanca as an ideal place to permanently live, holiday home or retire.
Located at the South-East corner of the Iberian Peninsula, between the regions of Andalusia, Castile-La Mancha and Valencia, Murcia is the ninth largest of the Spanish autonomous communities. Major cities within this region include Murcia and Cartagena with the main airport being San Javier Murcia, but Alicante is within a reasonable drive providing an additional option.
The Costa Calida, ?Warm Coast? is the mediterranean coastline of the province of Murcia. The region has a micro climate delivering a mediterranean semi-arid climate producing an average annual temperature of 18%BAC with hot summers registering maximum temperatures of 40%BAC and mild winters offering an average temperature of 11%BAC during December and January. The number of days per year with clear skies is 120-150, with approximately 2,800 sun-hours per annum. In general rain is scarce throughout the region with 300-350 mm per year, but this mainly falls around the spring and autumn periods, leaving the summer months an eminently dry season. On the coast temperatures tend never to fall below 10%BAC.
Murcia is a somewhat sleepier quieter region than its larger northern Valencian neighbour, Costa Blanca. Selecting the right area to purchase your property is an essential element to successfully settling and integrating into Spanish lifestyle. Murcia offers a sleepier, slower Spanish pace of living, but also offers a diverse selection of properties to suit all budgets and expectations.
