(A) Costa Blanca South (including Orihuela Costa)
Costa Blanca (“white coast”) South is the Coastal area in Alicante Province, from Alicante in the north down to the provincial border with Murcia Province, just before Mar Menor, in the South. It is a very well established area having grown and matured since the early international migration to the region started gathering momentum in the ‘70s (mostly from Britain.)
Today Alicante City is a well developed city with a very modern international airport serving the region. A little further south, you will find Torrevieja, a lively coastal town in the centre of this region. It is the largest costal town in Costa Blanca South, has many beach areas and a marina, and is a mix of residential, holiday making, and commerce.
Orihuela Costa (part of Costa Blanca South)
As one leaves Torrevieja in a southerly direction, you enter the municipal area known as Orihuela Costa
There are many fabulous beaches, and rocky coves along this part of the coast, and you also have a plethora of outstanding Golf Courses (including the Award winning 'Las Colinas' -- voted Spain's Best Golf Course and Leading Villa Resort), and so many other outdoor attractions to consider.
Some of the well known towns in Orihuela Costa are places like Villamartin, Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cabo Roig, Punta Prima, Mil Palmeras, Campoamor, Torre de la Horadada and others !
In the Villamartin area, there is also the well know Villmartin Plaza, a superb and highly rated palm tree lined Centre, with many restaurants. And in La Zenia is the areas's largest Shopping (and lifestyle) Centre (La Zenia Boulevard).
Whilst there has been significant development in the region, there is a lot of history to absorb, as well as having access to many interesting locations in the surrounding areas.
The climate is considered the best in Spain – mild in winter, and warm, but not over humid, in summer. Many people come to Costa Blanca in support of improving their health.
The whole region is well served by excellent connectivity to international airports (Alicante, and Murcia (Corvera)) and most locations are within 60 minutes or less from one of these.

Costa Calida (“warm coast”) is the coastal area of the Murcia Region, -- the next region south of the Alicante Region, in the east to south east corner of Spain. It has a 170 km coastline and together with its hinterland offers the widest spectrum of regional contrasts: beaches, rugged coast, mountains, valleys, vineyards, history, flora, fauna and so much more!
At Costa Calida’s northern end is the Mar Menor—the largest salt water lagoon in Europe, with its outer strip of land, La Manga, offering a spectacular residential and sports setting. The La Manga Club (Estate and Sports) is known around the world for its special place a few kms inland from the coast.
Costa Calida coastlines runs from Mar Menor southwards all the way to Aguila, passing the historic port city of Cartagena along the way. Cartagena which is steeped in both ancient (from BC times) and modern history is a truly fascinating town to visit and spend time in, and also has a significant naval presence.
There are approximately 23 Golf Courses all within very easy access of the main coastal regions. They have superb high quality settings, and many of them have residential estates.
Outside of the Regional City of Murcia (which is steeped in both history and tradition) is the new Corvera Murcia International Airport. Together with Alicante International Airport, the Murcia Region is well supported with air travel facilities.
Murcia Region is one of the fastest growing – yet relatively undeveloped— areas in Spain. It has something special to offer!

3. " Murcia Villas Roda – “professional” Murcia Villas took over management of our rental property in 2015. Day to day running of the property and financials relating to the tenancy are handled professionally, with good transparency on costs and expenses. We were particularly impressed though with Shan and Gary’s personal attention in managing refurbishment of the apartment prior to finding us a replacement tenant this year. The whole process was seamless and we’re confident that our overseas property is in good hands. "
4. " Outstanding is the first word that comes to mind while writing this review. Murcia Villas have been such an asset to our buying experience in Spain. They are such a professional outfit, that my husband and I can’t rate them highly enough. Fiona, one of the two founders of Murcia Villas, has been more than professional, knowledgeable as well as positive throughout this whole process. She turned every enquiry and any buying anxiety into a positive thought and resolved any problems along the way. Thank you so very much for turning this huge and stressful move, into a pleasant and totally positive experience. "
