The Costa Azahar, or ‘Orange Blossom Coast’, lies north of the vibrant city of Valencia and is part of the provinces of Valencia and Castellón. It is a beautiful and unspoilt area and has great beaches, stunning countryside and charming towns. It has a temperate climate with warm summers and mild winters. This coastal area is easily accessible from the international airport in Valencia. The area has been officially named by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places in Europe in which to live.
