  2. Busot is one of the costa blancas hidden gems, a genuine spanish old town, nestled in mountains it has a very personal and welcoming feel, we adore the place, we have travelled across spain and been to a lot of different areas but busot was somewhere we never forgot, when it came to finding somewhere to settle it was our number 1 choice. Very close to el campello another unspoilt area that we liked due to its lack of too many tourists, only those “in the know” enjoy el campello.
    Busot: simply beautiful!
