Around Algorfa About Algorfa | For Algorfa | By Algorfa
Around Algorfa is a showcase for everything connected with Algorfa – people, places, history, things to do, places to eat, places to stay and even to make your home.
On a drive through, you miss so much of the beating heart of this lovely little town, and we aim to put that right, and introduce you to the real Algorfa, giving you more and more reasons why so many people make Algorfa their home, or return to our town again and again.
We believe this is the first English language website dedicated to Algorfa; it’s certainly the first website produced by an Algorfa resident, for the benefit of the people of Algorfa, and anyone else fortunate enough to come across our beautiful town.
Algorfa has something for everybody, and Around Algorfa aims to spread that message far and wide.
I discovered Algorfa in 2007, when I came to the Costa Blanca on a property inspection trip. My husband and myself had talked about buying a place abroad, initially as a holiday home, with a view to eventually moving here. The first place we saw was the place we ended up buying – a garden apartment on La Finca, an urbanization two miles from the small, typically Spanish town of Algorfa. Until that moment, I’d never even heard of the place, but I knew immediately that this would be my home. There’s an indefinable quality about Algorfa that touches your soul, and Around Algorfa aims to get that special something across to as many people as possible.
Algorfa isn’t just somewhere you pass through on the way to somewhere else, or a convenient pit stop on a day out. It’s a little pueblo with a great big heart, in an idyllic setting, nestled among the orange groves of the Vega Baja, with a stunning backdrop of the Sierra de Callosa mountains. It’s not just the location though – Algorfa has an instant calming effect on everyone who passes through. It’s an eclectic mix of nationalities, and everyone gets along with everyone else. For me, Algorfa is the hidden gem of the Costa Blanca, and Around Algorfa aims to spread this special kind of magic to those in need of a refreshing change from the tourist trail.
