If you are buying a new home in Javea this is going to be an exciting time! Javea has evolved a lot since its beginnings as a small fishing village. Nestled against the back of Montgó mountain, tucked snugly between two rocky headlands, the wide bay of Javea offers up some beautiful views. Today the historical old town blends easily with newer, trendy areas like Arenal beach, which offers up a stunning selection of cafe bars, restaurants and night life – All of which are fairly essential to modern Mediterranean living!
Finding the Right Property for You
The Mediterranean life is renowned for its easy pace of life and sunshine. Of course, the main priority is to find a house which actually suits your needs. It can be hard to tick all the boxes within a fixed budget. Nevertheless, it is totally possible to tick all those boxes and find your perfect Spanish property, especially in Javea. La Corona is set to the north of Javea old town and the most expensive properties can be found here. Property in the central area of town, around Arenal beach, is highly sought after (as you might expect). While less expensive than La Corona, it is more expensive here, in comparison to the small urbanisations located south of the town – You will find plenty of choice.
Enjoy The Mediterranean Climate
Situated on the east coast Javea boasts long, hot and dry summers with mild winters – A truly Mediterranean climate! The great weather makes this a popular tourist destination all year. Unlike some regions, temperatures here remain fairly constant. The warmest and driest months are July through to September averaging around thirty degrees. August is the hottest month (with the average sea temperature at 26°C) and January the coldest with temperatures averaging twelve degrees (although it can go down to just 4°C). Rain does happen throughout the year however, October is usually the wettest…. But it’s a long way from the UK’s endless days of downpours!
Everything you Need
Spanish life is perfect for those in early retirement. The sunshine is uplifting and the diet proven to be healthy as well as tasty! Javea has all the amenities and entertainment most people need. However, it is an old, traditional town with lots of history as well as a port and marina, which keeps the general feel authentic to “real life” in the Mediterranean. There are some stunning, natural areas in this region as well as many lively and welcoming towns and villages to the north and south – The Costa Blanca has around two hundred kilometres of coastline to investigate! If you would like to keep the “mod cons” Javea is a very good choice. With Alicante and Valencia airport easily accessible and approximately an hour away it really is a great location to live. Without doubt, Javea offers up Mediterranean living at its best!
