Where do people start when deciding to look to buy property in Javea?
Javea is split into three distinct areas – the old town, the port area and the beach area known as the Arenal. In all three of these areas you will find the majority of the apartments in Javea.
The Arenal beach area contains the majority of the apartments. This means you can walk to the beach, with plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and bars close by.
Of course this means that if you want to buy a villa in Javea then you will have to live further out. This is a key consideration. Most villas to buy are in the hills that surround Javea’s old town, port and Arenal beach area. Public transport is minimal so a car is essential when you buy a villa in Javea.
