Alicante, the major city of the Costa Blanca, has a lot to offer the overseas buyer. It has an international airport for a start, which means that if you own a place here, you won’t have far to travel once you’ve landed. Its train station is also an important hub for travellers within Spain and those arriving from other parts of Europe. In other words – Alicante is well connected.
