Re: Alicante Tram Service

The tram is great. Unfortunately, the closure of the line up to Denia means you will miss the best place on the entire coast, Javea.

The bus company is called Alsa and will get you to the parts...

Re: Alicante expats query

There's no train from Javea to Valencia. There's a bus that takes 2 hours or a little less.

There are plenty of expats in Javea but there are plenty in many other places too, so I wouldn't let...

Re: Alicante expats query

Hi Op,

I'm in Javea which has plenty of expats and is coastal, so seems to fit the bill, although it is an hour and 20 mins from the airport.

I'm not aware of any race tracks though.

Re: Where not?

It's me and Moses, we're always like this.

Read it, it's an insipid guide that doesn't begin to address the issue. There are much better available.

BTW, about off-topic.

Re: Where not?

Whether Catalans are bilingual has no relevance to the point I was making, but if you can't work that out i'll leave that one there. I've explained what I meant re the Catalans' view on integration...

On good form as always Moses.

I seem to remember the Op saying "I don't expect anyone to criticise areas or towns but some positive guidance would be very helpful"

And the very first reply,...

Re: Where not?

I love the area of the Ebro and spent quite a lot of time in Tortosa. Certainly no issues with Castellano there. But that's where the vote to leave Spain was a minority. Further up, it's different....

Re: Retiring to Spain

Why thank you very much, very kind of you to say so.



Oooo, keyboard warrior credentials confirmed there.

Spain's loss is southern France's gain, clearly.

Re: Retiring to Spain

I found a property I wanted to buy so it was then that I went to get my NIE. It took a week, not 3 months. That was in Denia where it's done at an office with that purpose, not a local police...

Re: Where not?

They don't speak Spanish up there and won't appreciate your efforts to do so. It's the land of nationalists and separatists. Do yourself a favour and move to Spain, not Catalunya.

Re: Where not?

Torrevieja's ok climate-wise (not extreme heat) but then it's in Alacant not Murcia. It's also littered with densely packed housing estates that don't look great, but there are exceptions.

Re: The Spanish climate..?

I think you might be overplaying the rainfall Op. Yes, we get some, but not much. Javea installed a desalination plant as there isn't enough to drink.

That said, if you want hot and dry all the...

Re: Urbanizations - pro's and con's

I'd say it depends on how much any noise would bother you. If you're the sort who can accept that you will hear others then fine, but if noise would wind you up then avoid.

You were prepared to put more effort in than me Mark, by asking for a clue.

I just gave a useless answer instead.
