The story of our adventure in Spain

In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.

This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.

Guardamar -Contra El Deslinde

Deslinde in English means limit or borderline.

The local Guardamar authorities are basically complaining about the Ley de Costas - a national law which controls building within the coastal area.

Central government can overrule local authorities and declare certain properties built within the coastal area illegal and enforce compulsory demolition. This area is limited to a certain distance from the coast - hence the name Deslinde or border.
