Nestled between the Costa Blanca and the Costa del Sol are the unspoilt regions of Costa Calida and Costa Almeria. The region has more than 200 km of coastline with stunning and sometimes hidden beaches, spectacular mountain scenery, pine forests and the famous Mar Menor lagoon.
Let us introduce you to a beautiful and warmly welcoming landscape where the influence of Moorish culture can still be felt in the festivities… Here you will find the “real Spain”. Here you can breathe in the highly intoxicating scent of the Mediterranean mix of orange and lemon groves, almond and olive blossom, and rediscover narrow cobbled streets and lime-coloured houses…
This area, brimming with fascinating history and architecture, was the last stronghold of the Moors in Spain. Travelling around these beautiful villages, it is not uncommon to be forced to give way to goat herds or horse and cart, reminding you that you are in the ‘real Spain’.
More than 320 days of sunshine a year, hot summers and mild winters, make this area the country’s last unspoilt jewel. If the bustling areas of the Costa Blanca or the Costa del Sol are not for you, your place in the sun is here, in the ‘real Spain’. In this region, only 20 houses are allowed per hectare, compared to 60 in other parts of Spain.
Stretching down to Almeria (Andalusia’s easternmost province), this area awakens all the senses. Here you can breathe in the highly intoxicating scent of the Mediterranean mix of orange and lemon groves, almond and olive blossom. There are Moorish inland towns and sleepy villages with narrow streets and limestone-coloured houses, all brought to life by the lively and colourful weekly street markets. Here you’ll find a romantic blend of poignant landscapes and a relaxed lifestyle.
