Property in the Jalon Valley
We have a great range of different Spanish properties in the Jalon Valley, northern Costa Blanca – from gorgeous luxury villas with pools, to more modest townhouses and apartments, renovation projects and traditional Spanish fincas. Many of our properties here are in a rural setting – ideal if you are looking for a tranquil location. Costa Blanca North is less built up and more sparsely populated than Costa Blanca South – it has some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole of Spain. The Jalon Valley is sheltered by breathtaking mountains and is the perfect spot for cultivating olives, oranges, grapes and almonds. In the spring the whole valley is filled with the scent of almond blossom.
Dotted over the Jalon Valley (also known as ‘Vall de Pop’) are numerous unspoilt Spanish villages: places like Lliber, Parcent, and Alcalali. At the heart of the valley is the town of Jalon, with its traditional whitewashed houses and winding cobbled streets. There is a blue domed church, and a fountain in the middle of the town square – this is where the local market is held on Tuesday mornings. With a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants and bodegas, where you can sample the local wines, the town of Jalon will cater for all your day to day needs.
The Jalon Valley seems to have it all: a gorgeous location, near to the coast – yet a world away from the noise and bustle of some of the busier Spanish resort towns. This is the perfect spot if you hanker for a taste of real Spain: a slower pace of life in a tranquil, country setting. At around an hour and 20 minutes from Valencia, and just over an hour from Alicante, it’s easy to get to, with good motorway links.
