What do I need to know before moving to Altea?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Altea, they said...

"Be methodical and organized. Have a time-line with goals. Seek input from people who have made similar moves. Test drive the town and neighborhood before committing to a long-term lease or purchase. In Spain, for example, there are numerous vacation rental apartments, homes, villas, etc. where you can stay for several weeks or months (at far cheaper rates than most hotels) to get a feel for the area you are considering," remarked another expat who made the move to Altea, Spain.

"Altea is a beautiful coastal town in the province of Alicante, Spain. It is known for its stunning beaches, picturesque old town, and vibrant culture. Expats should be aware that the local language is Spanish, so it is important to learn some basic Spanish before moving to Altea. Additionally, the cost of living in Altea is relatively low compared to other parts of Spain, making it an attractive destination for expats. Expats should also be aware that the climate in Altea is Mediterranean, with hot summers and mild winters. Finally, expats should be aware that Altea is a popular tourist destination, so it can be quite crowded during the summer months," explained one expat living in Altea, Spain.
