Spring has already sprung on the Costa Blanca - Wed 02nd February 2011

 Almond blossom is always much anticipated by the locals in this area of Spain, as it heralds the warmer weather. The valleys become a carpet of colour as the blossoms fill the air with the sweet scents and photogenic colour. There are many ways to enjoy the different landscapes, and to drag you away from your rental holiday villa.
You will see the blossom locally, but for a real spectacle head inland from the coast of the Costa Blanca to the Jalon Valley. It really is a treat, as you drive through these sleepy Spanish towns and villages, not touched by tourism of the Costas, and wonder at the peace and quiet of it all.

The town of Jalon (Xaló in local Valenciano) itself is very pretty, and perhaps go there on market day on Saturday where the streets are filled with local produce, and they hold a famous antiques' market that goes on and on. If that is not enough to entice you then the many co-operatives sell locally produced wines at local prices!
Whilst there you might want to drive further to the mountain restaurant 'Coll de Rates', which has stunnings views, and an extensive outside terrace, and you can enjoy typical local mountain food.
