We move into a 2 bedroom bungalow type villa on Sunday.
There is a pool and outside kitchen. We can park the caravan on site so it can be offered as extra accommodation for visitors.
It is 400 yards from the town of Xalo/Jalon in a valley with sun all day. Hopefully the weather will stay warm and we can use the pool for a few weeks. It is really hot at the moment but the campsite has closed the pool so we have to go down to the sea for swim. Apparently the coldest month is February. A lot of people BBQ on Christmas Day, so that sounds as though it will be fine.
Xalo is about 15 miles from the sea, has a huge Saturday market and has a lot of ex-pats. We have found some Spanish classes to join already and we are both looking forward to this next phase of our travels.
Unfortunately, there is no wifi connection at the villa so we are going to find internet cafes and tourist offices to keep in contact with everyone. There is still text messaging on my mobile phone number though.
Flights into Alicante are about £50/70 return so we are hoping for lots of friends and family to come over for a visit.
