About Us

Welcome to A Place In The Valley...

Together the Jalon and Orba Valleys are often thought to be two of Spain's best-kept secrets, and it's a sentiment we at A Place in the Valley certainly agree with (hint: it's the reason we chose to live and work here ourselves). If you're looking for beautiful villas or stunning townhouses in an area renowned to be a hidden gem of the Costa Blanca, you've come to the right place.

Everyone knows that buying a home can be a complicated process, and one that is often wrought with emotion and unexpected obstacles, but we believe it's genuinely possible to enjoy the entire experience - from the moment you start searching to the moment you are finally handed the keys. 

And whilst we at A Place in the Valley offer a truly diverse portfolio of properties, if you are unable to find your dream home amongst our selection, we have built fantastic relationships with a number of excellent collaborating agents, all of whom share our immense passion and dedication. Together we will help you to find your dream home under the sun.

Why Us?

We pride ourselves on a dedicated, 24-hour service, which means we are available any time, day or night, to answer queries or put your concerns to rest (we’ve no qualms about chatting in the small hours of the morning, if that’s your sort of thing).

It’s important to us that every member of our team understands your thinking, aspirations, and opinions during every stage of the process. And if you’re not sure about something, need advice, or have even changed your mind, we have the expertise and knowledge to look at your requirements with a fresh set of eyes in order to explore the alternatives.

At A Place in the Valley we will be there to guide you through every single stage of buying and selling a house, from that initial offer all the way to completion, and in a manner that is tailored to fit around you. Better yet, our relationship doesn’t just come to an end when you move into your house: we’re always just a phone call away.
