Orba, Costa Blanca
Orba on the Costa Blanca is one of the beautiful valley villages in the Alicante province where any news of a property for sale is quickly snapped up and acted on. The ‘Valle de Pop’ region consists of the area between the Jalon Valley and the Orba Valley, including surrounding villages such as Parcent, Alcalali, Lliber, and Murla and being only a short drive to the coast but with lower prices, offer some great property deals.
It is useful and indeed necessary for one to get an overview of valley life first. The way to do this is to understand a little about what the Alicante province as a whole has to offer. This will enable anyone to put Orba in its’ right perspective.
The Alicante province is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the whole of Spain. This is hardly surprising because it boasts of a number of unique, fascinating and extremely attractive, as well as very famous tourist, attractions. This beautiful area of the Costa Blanca includes Benidorm, hailed as the Mediterranean’s finest tourist resort. The sea front, Explanada where the works of artists such as Alfaro, Canogar, Mompo, Tapies, Miro Picasso and Gris can be viewed and details about their lives discussed, is always very busy with tourist traffic, as are the theme parks (Sea World, Terra Mitica, Aqualandia and Terra Natura). This is the place for nightlife, great beaches and shopping, and is located just 25 minutes from the Orba valley.
The whole province is really an unforgettable experience for any tourist who travels to Spain, but villages like Orba also have their own attractions, such as local ceramics and produce, and the typical slow pace of life that Spain is famous for. The valley areas are green and mountainous, as opposed to the flatter southern areas, and offer some very beautiful scenery as well as realistically priced property.
It therefore goes without saying that Orba Costa Blanca property is extremely popular and includes a varied selection of villas and apartments. Being only 15 minutes drive to the coast at Denia, and offering fantastic sea and valley views, demand for property in Orba and the surrounding valleys is increasing as it is one of the great recommended ways to have a truly relaxing holiday or permanent lifestyle.
What this means is that any investment in Orba property is virtually money in the bank when it come to renting to holidaymakers who prefer a quieter less ‘touristy’ holiday. This is assuming that you are not planning on living in the property yourself to enjoy the unbelievable surroundings and environment in the Orba valley, and that you are planning to let it out with investment income as your main objective.
Long term visitors or those who choose to move permanently to the Orba valley find it easy to integrate with village life, where you will find bars, restaurants, shops and a traditional Spanish lifestyle, as well as a sociable expat community of those who have chosen to make Orba their home.
Any property for sale in the Orba area is an excellent investment that is bound to please beyond expectations. Whilst prices are still rising on the Costa Blanca, property in the valley areas provide good value for money, remaining lower than those directly on the coast and often with much larger plots. Views from some of these properties are panoramic – something you don’t get on the flatter coast areas, and village life can be a lot more entertaining that most would imagine!
