One of the traditional villages of the Vega Baja district of the Costa Blanca, San Fulgencio began life during the early 18th century when it was built on reclaimed land, taken from the marshes of the River Segura.

Surviving on agriculture since these early times, it has become popular as a tourist destination with many holiday homes being built nearby on the ever growing La Marina urbanization.

The village centre still has the look of the typical Spanish village of the region, with a tree shaded village square bounded by its town hall and parochial church.

While San Fulgencio is an inland village, it is quite close to local beaches such as Guardamar del Segura and La Marina, and attracts tourist who want a bit of peace and quiet while still being able to access the busy beach areas.

Moving to San Fulgencio

If you are thinking of moving to San Fulgencio, then you must read our expat interview with Dave Loughlin of Su Casita International below:

Dave, what would you say would be the advantages to living in San Fulgencio compared to other Costa Blanca towns?

San Fulgencio is situated between the salt lakes of Santa Pola and Torrevieja, and has been declared as one of the healthiest areas to live in according to the World Health Organisation.

The urbanisation of La Marina is just 4 km to the beach, and surrounded by traditional Spanish towns, La Marina village, La Hoya, Dolores, San Fulgencio village, and Rojales.

Would the area not suit certain types of people, i.e. are there any possible downsides?

There are none. The urbanisation offers close knit communities with a large spread of nationalities, the local towns have a traditional Spanish life style, and the rural areas between the towns offer a quieter way of life but within a few minutes to the amenities.

What proportion of the local population are Spanish?

The surrounding towns are populated mainly with Spanish people. The urbanisation has a wide mix of nationalities: British, German, Belgium, Dutch, Scandinavian, and Spanish.

What are your favorite things to do in the area?

The area offers a full range of sporting activities, Golf, Fishing, sea and fresh water, Cycling, Mountain walks, Aqua parks, Cinemas, large shopping centres in Elche, Torrevieja, and La Zenia Boulevard. The beach is within a few minutes from all the above mentioned towns.

Can you give us some insider tips to the best bars or restaurants?

There are bars and restaurants to cover all taste, Sports bars offering live action sports, Entertainment bars offering Karaoke, Disco, Live acts, traditional Spanish bars offering Tapas, and some offering the chance to chill and have a quick chat.

Restaurants to suit all taste, Chinese, Indian, Spanish, French, Traditional British, and Scandinavian.

Are there many facilities such as doctors and dentists, shops etc?

There are Health centres, dentist, Chiropodist, and Ophthalmic centers in the area. The larger hospitals of Elche and Torrevieja are approx.. 15 minutes by car.

Are there smaller villages nearby that you might also recommend?

These are mentioned above. They offer all the amenities such as local shops, banks, supermarkets, and weekly local markets. The urbanisation also offers a market three times a week.

What are the nearest international schools and how good are they?

There are International schools in Elche and Torrevieja. Plenty of local schools are found in the surrounding towns.

Is crime an issue for expats?

There is very little crime, and with at least five free English speaking papers per week I think we are kept well informed of any events.

Coming onto buying property, what is the market like now in terms of prices going up, or down or staying the same?

Resale property prices are quite firm and will start to rise slowly after about seven years of decline. New build properties are in high demand and increasing much faster.

Is this a good time to buy and are there any repossessions or very cheap properties still available to buy?

Now is a good time as properties will increase in value. All the best bargains have been sold. There are still some cheap resale properties, but they would need some upgrade.

What urbanisations are there and can you describe each one and how they might differ from each other?

La Marina is mentioned above. This is a large urbanisation which offers every amenity. There are four commercial zones, so all properties are within a short walk to their nearest zone.

How much are the typical property prices in San Fulgencio for apartments, villas etc?

A two bedroom Bungalow / Townhouse will start at around 50k. A two bedroom Apartment / Duplex will start around 70k.

A three bedroom Detached Villa with Pool will start around 225k
