Hondón Valley

The Hondón Valley, is in the west of the Alicante Region, Costa Blanca South, Spain. Its nearest city is Elche to the south east or Crevillente (both about 20 minutes drive) with Alicante city & airport about 30 minutes drive. The two close  neighbouring villages are called  Hondón De Los Frailes and Hondon de las Nieves.

Both villages are typically Spanish, old, quiet rural villages: quaint, friendly and have changed very little over the years. The local economy and work rely heavily on the agricultural industry (grapes, almonds, olives and figs) in this very fertile valley and in more recent times, the building industry has been dominant as the area is rich in limestone and marble. The property boom since the millennium has seen a large influx of property investors and development, mainly northern Europeans. This money has helped to revive both villages. Foreigners now make up approx. 50% of the population.
