With 40,000 inhabitants, Denia is a town that offers a range of options all year round. Located on the northern side of the Montgó mountain (so care must be taken when choosing a property which may have a lot of shade), the town and its coastal port area are overlooked by a Medieval fortress. The port is an important ferry link to the Balearic islands of Majorca and Menorca and Ibiza.
The infrequent tram service to Alicante via Benidorm is the best local transport option for those who do not have access to a car.
REAL ESTATE LANDSCAPE
As a working town, Denia has a range of real estate options ranging from beachfront condominiums along the town’s norther coastline, to residential apartments a little further back from the coast, to villas in the hills surrounding the town. There is a reasonable amount of new build real estate, in particular in closed condominiums.
DENIA AS A RETIREMENT DESTINATION
Denia achieves a good balance between being a sufficiently large town and having enough activity, amenities and services. Most of the large town is flat and so walking. Especially along the long shorefront promenade near port and the city’s historical neighbourhood, is both interesting and pleasant.
