Javea Property For Sale
Javea, also known as Xabia, is located in the Alicante province on the Costa Blanca. With its white beaches and gentle Mediterranean breezes (this sounds a lot like a tourist brochure but it´s true!) it´s easy to see why Javea is referred to as “the jewel in the crown of the Costa Blanca”. Boasting a rugged coastline with secluded bays perfect for sunbathers, snorkelling and scuba diving, its also been voted as environmentally near perfect by the World Health Organisation, this makes it clear to see why UK residents choose to look for property for sale in Javea.
Javea is located midway between Alicante airport and Valencia airport, so is easily accessible. It's a vibrant town and is very much an international place where 50% of the population are expatriates. This means that there are a large number of business and personal networks for newcomers to join, and the huge tourist populations in summer keep Javea well-equipped with English-speaking facilities: not just tourist offices and other handy services, but also doctors, dentists, electricians and so on. As well as the public and private Spanish schools, Javea has an international school that offers the British curriculum to its students. The Lady Elizabeth School is a non-boarding school and caters for kids from three to eighteen years old. It´s well located in Casco San Juan, right near the town centre of Javea.
Javea has been popular with English-speaking expats since the 1970s and is now home to roughly 13,000 UK and US emigres. People who plan to live here initially like to try before they buy, so they rent first, either to try the area or try the house and then may look to buy a Javea property after a year or so.
As much market town as seaside resort, this is Alicante province at its classiest. Living in Javea is definitely a way to get out of the rat race and of course a lot of people are working remotely these days so why not work in Spain where you can enjoy a wonderful lifestyle with over 300 days of sunshine per year its easy to see why people explore property for sale in Javea Spain.
Javea is made up of three completely unique areas;
- The Arenal - The bustling Arenal area of Javea is very popular, with its stunning gently sloping blue flag sandy beach and a wide range of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, its one of the major attractions. Benefitting from four play parks, a sports area and a water sports centre based on the accompanying river, this area is very touristy but is a great place to go to socialise and let the children run free.
- The Port - This is often a favourite as it is much quieter than the Arenal, the charming marina houses local fishing boats and some private sailing yachts, there are a smaller selection of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops, with mostly low rise apartment blocks. This area has a real Spanish feel and many locals live and work here, blending in with the tourist elements.
- The Old Town - The historical Old Town is a really stunning place to visit or live, there are quaint cobbled streets, little town shops, a stunning 15th century church, all nestled amongst some beautiful streets filled with town houses and apartments. The town is filled with the market on a Thursday but for the rest of the week it is an enjoyable calm place to live and visit, with many little privately owned cafes, bars and restaurants, and some lovely little shops. The Old Town is at the foot of the Montgo, our great landmark that is seen by most of Javea.
