Algorfa and its Location
A typical Spanish town sits, in an extremely privileged location. Almost on its doorstep are: ‘Blue Flag’ beaches, woods, nature reserves, leisure facilities, a ‘world class’ golf course (La Finca), peace, rest and relaxation. All are wonderful values whether people are visiting or residing in Algorfa. This is an excellent choice of location. You can revel in the peace this sleepy village provides, or, you can choose to join one of the many activities the area provides.
Imagine living a place where the busy ‘rush hour’ traffic jam, contains only five cars, at any road junction!
Lying on the banks of the River Segura. Algorfa is one of the Vega Baja’s lush and fertile citrus farming villages. Orange and lemon groves line all roads surrounding the village. Just outside the village, towards the west, on the road to Benejuzar is a graceful and unusual nineteenth century church build in the very popular neo-gothic style. The church can be visited whilst admiring the beautiful green countryside in the fertile valley of the river. The area is well connected to the main roads of the region.
Take a moment to imagine an extended and protected natural landscape, with a beautiful panoramic view over the peaceful Vega Baja’s mountainous plains and the Mediterranean Sea.
