Costa Blanca Spain

Costa Blanca. I have lived most of my life in Windsor England. It is a superb place to live and I was very fortunate to grow up there. Back in 2018 we decided to say goodbye to the Windsor and moved to Spain. Dreaming of endless days of sunshine, good food and of course plenty of Vino. I am now fortunate to live in the Hondon Valley, Costa Blanca.

The Hondon Valley is located inland, west of the Alicante in Spain. It's is a valley in the Sierra Crevillente Mountain range. The small village with live in boasts approx. 600 families. It is typical Spanish, rural village, quaint, friendly and beautiful. Whilst the village is small, a supermarket, doctors, pharmacist, garage and no less than 6 good restaurants!! Many a day is spent sat in the village plaza with the odd glass of vino. What's not to love?

The valley is a major source of fruit and vegetables. Most of the fruit and vegetables sold in UK supermarkets comes from our valley. Grapes, almonds, olives, oranges and pretty much everything is grown here. The valley has its own micro climate with very little rain each year. In the summer there are blue skies and recently the temperature has hit in the mid 40s. The winters are cold due to the altitude and log fires thick jumpers are a must.

We really are living the Dream!
