  1. Ross Girvan says

    We have lived just outside Algorfa for over 12 years (on Urb. Montebello).
    It is easily located and a comfortable ride from Alicante Airport and Mercia.
    We like it for many reasons after moving from the UK over 12 years ago.
    The climate is good all year round, and if you’re looking for beaches etc there are many to choose from to the east only 20kms away.
    Services and facilities are good. Food and restaurants are excellent, and there’s plenty to choose from, at a very reasonable price.
    All in all, an excellent place to live and make your home, or visit friends,, or holiday.

    • HiI am in the process of buying a property in Algorfa (so excited).  I’m happy to drive while in spain but my daughter isnt.  Could you tell me about whether there is public transport that could take you to the beach area or commercial areas?  

      Thanks Lesley
