Description of Torrevieja
About 30 miles south of Alicante lies Torrevieja, which is for all intents and purposes a town that’s been purpose built from the ground up for the annual tourist hordes. Not that this is a bad thing from an investment point of view and while the term ‘concrete jungle’ may spring to mind, Torrevieja remains one of the most popular year-round holiday resorts anywhere on the Costa Blanca.
Hot summers and mild winters make Torrevieja a favourite with Brits, Germans and increasingly Russians looking to escape the unpredictable weather at home. Buying to sell can be tricky due to the sheer number of properties always popping up all over the resort, but in terms of simple short-term holiday letting it’s rarely an unsafe place to consider.
For expats seeking a new life abroad, many holiday home hunters have gone on to stay in the area, forming a British and Irish community that rivals Benidorm in size. You won't regret joining them.
