A large rural area is situated just three kilometers as the crow flies from the coast. Thus enabling us to enjoy the best of both worlds. We therefore have on our doorstep the beautiful beaches and coves, the hustle and bustle of the coastal towns. And on the other hand the peace and tranquility of the countryside of the provinces of Alicante and Valencia.
