Inland Costa Blanca properties are the ideal way to experience real Spain – a world away from the hectic Costa Blanca coastline. Crevillente is a picturesque old Spanish town, with a population of around 25000 and a real sense of community. Inland Costa Blanca boasts mild winters and the opportunity to live a healthier outdoor life.
Crevillente nestles in the foothills of the Sierra de Crevillente – a rugged landscape of outstanding natural beauty, the mountain range rises to over 2,700 ft above the coastal plains. With the San Cayetano Natural Park and El Hondo Natural Park nearby, this region is an area of considerable ecological importance. Alicante is just 32 kilometres away, the beaches of the Costa Blanca are around half an hour’s drive, and there are several excellent golf courses in the immediate vicinity.
