 Hi I am planning a move to the Costa Blanca with my wife and two children, we have been looking in the Ciudad Quesada area but want to broaden our property search area. We want to initially live on an urbanisation close to an English community whilst we settle in, make friends, work on our Spanish etc before maybe moving somewhere more predominantly Spanish later in life, in other words jumpin at the shallow end and swim deeper in our own time. 

Can anyone give me some general information on the Villamartin area? Where is the best area to live for families? How far is the nearest state school? 

I am well aware that I will need to visit and stay in the area to judge for myself but any help would be appreciated.  Alternatively if anyone has any other area suggestions ideal for families I would be more than happy to here them. 

Many thanks in advanced to anyone who replies, all information is much appreciated

Adam

 Hi Adam,

I have had an apartment on Villamartin since 1994, and can recommend the area. I never tire of visiting.  It is predominantly English, but with a good cosmopolitan mix, especially from northern Europe. Unlike some urbanisations, Villamartin is well visited by tourists and golfers, with a large number of residents, and not a ghost town in winter.  Facilities are excellent for families and others alike.  The urbanisations are very well maintained and have a good reputation.  Community fees are very reasonable.  It's probably best to rent for an extended holiday before making the move permanently and commiting to a school.

As for schools, I am aware of a international establishment El Limonar, and a state school at Los Dolces (primary I think) both easily accessible.

Maybe a resident will give you better and more up to date information.  There are a couple of forums you could search also.

Good luck with your move.

 Thanks Keeve 

I as I said I will certainly be staying in the area before making any decisions to buy but to here good reports on the area is always nice. Do you know if any area of Villamartin in particular has more permanent residents?
