Country Life

Since the Scandinavians began their sun-seeking forays into eastern Spain in the early 1960’s the Costa Blanca has become synonymous with miles of golden beaches, almost year-round sun and the relaxed lifestyle that epitomises Spain. Few ventured more than a few kilometres from the lapping Mediterranean but those who did discovered a region of glorious diversity, from rugged mountains to almost lunar landscapes; vast areas of natural beauty where the scent of aromatic herbs filled the air and wild flower-lined walks meandered through pine forests; Neolithic rock paintings, majestic waterfalls, searing rock faces and deep caves formed over millions of years; tiny villages where recipes are handed down from generation to generation and the rhythm of life was dictated by the growing season. And it still exists.
