There are many reasons why the Costa Blanca is such a popular choice with foreign nationals including the lower cost of living, lower crime rate, excellent national health system and of course the healthy climate.
With mild winters and lovely hot summers it is easy to see why the area is so sought after as so many people dream of retiring in the sun, buying a holiday home or starting a new life with a more laid back outdoor lifestyle and better quality of life.

Spain has recently been ranked as the best place to live in Europe whilst the UK and Ireland ranked much lower, according to a recent poll. The uSwitch.com Quality of Life Index has said that British families are worse off than some of their fellow Europeans when it comes to the cost of fuel, quality of healthcare, life expectancy, education, retirement age, working hours and holiday entitlement.
Spain fared well in most categories, with low taxation and cheaper essential goods. The quality of life in Spain is boosted further by higher than average life expectancy, the most hours of sunshine and a generous holiday allowance.
