2020 / Gran Alicant Spain Jasmine Harman on 5 October 2020

Gran Alicant Spain Jasmine Harman

Recently-retired Baksho wants to buy a holiday home in the resort of Gran Alicant on the Costa Blanca and she has brought along sister Sukvinder to help her. With a budget of £100,000, can Jasmine Harman find them the perfect family-friendly property?

Gran Alicant

Why buy here?

Gran Alacant is situated in the Southern Costa Blanca. It’s just a ten minute drive from Alicante airport with flights from the UK taking around two and a half hours. Rather than being a traditional Spanish village that’s gown into a resort, this town started as an urbanisation named Gran Alacant. It was so popular with holiday makers and ex pats that a number of other urbanisations sprung up around it and it has grown into a thriving holiday resort. The area has two of the Costa Blanca’s most beautiful blue flag beaches and is flanked by a nature reserve, which is a haven for wild birds.
