Expats write about their move to the town of Jalon (also known as Xalo) in the Jalon Valley, Costa Blanca in Spain.
Jalon ( Xalo ) Costa Blanca North is a Beautiful Mountain Valley some 20 minutes from the costas.
With Vines plus Almond and Olive trees and the dry river bed running through the valley.
There is a very natural feel to the area, surrounded by stunning Mountains.
There are 5 Villages in the valley the largest being Jalon , where all amenities are found. Plus a Rastro market held each Saturday which brings in Hundreds of Visitors who also enjoy the Bodegas to take in some wine tasting. Then off to one of the many Restaurants.
The fact that the Laude, Lady Elizabeth International School is in the Valley is why we were happy to choose this area for our home.
We have lived here for 11 years, and watched the area grow, from having to travel miles to get what you need for a family.
Today we are well placed for all you need be it DIY ,Business ,Sport , Pleasure or just a good day out at the shops.
With the two airports of Alicante 70 min and Valencia 80 min away.
Excellent Motor way connections or Ferries to the Balearic islands or Morocco from Denia and Alicante .
We are quite satisfied with our decision to make Jalon (Xalo) our home.
