Description:Also part of the Marina Alta area, Gandia is a town situated at the foot of Safor mountain range. It has a port and beach, and also several monuments in the town such as The Ducal Palace and Cathedral. The Gandia Playa coastal resort consists of over 4 miles of beaches alongside a palm-lined promenade.

What sets this area apart from the others is that it has a rich feel to it.  Property prices are expensive here but you do get a clean picturesque resort that seems to escape the hustle and bustle of its neighbours.

Don’t expect to make much of a return on your money.  A purchase here is to enjoy your investment and hope for a return from capital growth.  If you like what I like about this place then you’ll be assured that someone else will 10 years down the line.  The direction Spain is going any property bought in Spain will return above average returns.  The more desirable area it is the more assured the gain will materialise.

There are not that many operators that land in this area which can work for you.  There isn’t a heavy influx in or out of this area so the pace of the area is much slower than what you would expect from a coastal Spainish resort.
