Algorfa is a small town located in the heart of the Veja Baja community in Costa Blanca.
The town is surrounded by citrus farms and is close to the banks of the Rio Del Segura that runs from the mountains down the coastal resort of Guardamar Del Segura which is 15 kilometres from Algorfa.
Whilst sitting in an inland location, Algorfa has a reputation as being one of the most sought after destinations for ex pats looking to buy a property away from the coast and has a reputation for offering value for money as well as offering many things to do.
Alicante airport is just a 30 minute drive up the AP7 motorway and San Javier Murcia airport just a 40 minute drive.
La Finca Golf Resort, one of the best golf courses in Costa Blanca is part of the Algorfa district and is less than a 5 minute drive from the town making it a busy all year community made up of Spanish and international residents, holidaymakers and tourists.
The town offers all the amenities you would require for all year round living or for a holiday including a wide array of bars and restaurants, shops, medical facilities, banks and a traditional village square at the heart of the community.
There is a junior school and nursery in the town making Algorfa a very attractive destination for families looking for a long term home in Spain.
Algorfa plays home to annual fiestas during the summer and for two weeks the town becomes a hive of parties, food and drink events, religious celebrations and live music into the early hours of the night.
There are two churches in the town, one in the main square and a church on the outskirts of the town which was built in the early 19th century – the church is well worth a visit and makes up part of the spectacular sunsets along with the mountain backdrop from many properties in Algorfa throughout the year.
As well as the main town there are urbanisations and commercial centres at La Finca Golf, Montebello, Montemar and Lo Crispin – each area is very popular and offers a wide array of properties for people to choose from.
If you are looking for a property located in a typically Spanish surrounding but not too far from the coast, property in Algorfa may well be worth a consideration.
