    Does anyone know anything, good or bad about Monte Pego ( Juan Porsellanes) or the names of any good builders in Northern Cala Blanca.

    Thank you Mark for your recommendation of a lawyer.

    I have no personal experience of Monte Pego (Juan Porsellanes) but they have an impressive website and some unique selling points which if true are excellent. For example they state they do not need agents to market their properties and they are not looking for an immediate reservation deposit so viewers can leave their cheque books behind. They also say that on their inspection trips you are free to view other firms’ properties. If I buy in Spain I woud certainly check them out especially as I really like the Northern Costa Blanca, apart from the fact the Valenciano is the main language and I have been learning Castillian.

    Jugo if did you get any feedback on the firm I would interested to hear this by PM or e-mail (mike@montgo.co.uk).

    This was one of the places I was looking at to buy but read somewhere on the net some negative responses of Juan Porsellanes,I am sorry I cannot specifically remember what it was,I think it was something to do with slow building but will do a search and see if I can find the info.

    mikegrant2/marios.

    Thank you both for your response. We actually went out to Monte Pego in November and have now just put down a deposit on a villa. We really like the whole area ( Moraira/Jalonvalley/Orba valley/Pego etc.) The quality we thought was very good.

    We had already looked at some properties in the Jalon Valley but the quality was awful. Also last October we went to Almeria to look there, lovely villas (Lakes Vega and Garcia) at very good prices but the area was too arid for us and they are building everywhere. I think the location must come first.

    We were shown quite a few plots on Monte Pego, some were too big for us as we only want a holiday home. On the second day of looking, we found one that was right for us. We have some pleasant views both of the sea and the mountains.

    We were shown around the area, the offices, restaurant, local bar, there is a BBVA bank on the site and Mayodorma (rentals, maintenance, post box location). There is also a small supermarket but it was closed when we were there, probably closes during the very low season.

    One thing you do need, is a car, although it is not far from Pego and Denia, it is too far to walk.

    We have just had the memo of sale from Monte Pego and are waiting to hear from our lawyer to say that everything is as it should be. Our lawyer
    was one recommended from this site and so far so good.

    We were told that it would be ready about March 2007 and that they are often finished earlier – time will tell. My husband semi-retires November 2008 so we are not in a hurry – we hardly have any time for holidays at the moment.

    Mikegrant2 – If you would like me to keep you informed of our progress please let me know and Marios I would also be pleased if you could p.m me – if you find out anything good or bad about Monte Pego.

    Regards.

    😕 😀

    Hi Jugo

    Thanks for your interesting information and glad you had a positive experience. Did you find the company professional and inspection trip a soft sell?

    Not having visited the Monte Pego development I was wondering if what Juan Porsellanes are building is on a large discrete urbanisation or a number of different sites. According to the website they have been building at Monte Pego for 24 years. Did you feel for example the area is overdeveloped or in danger of becoming so?

    Jugo,can’t PM you obviously but did not find anything that was negative,there are a fair number for resale in Pego but then that applies to most places.

    I must say I did like this urbanisation (looking at the website)but never got around to looking at it when over and the prices seem reasonable but we plumped for a self build down in the costa del sol near sotogrande,bought a plot with sea views.I would be interested to see how everything goes as we did like the area and you never know may end back up there.

    Hi Jugo

    I live about 12 kms from Monte Pego and I can assure you you have made an excellent choice of area. Monte Pego is a well established – if not expensive by comparison, development but as you say the quality is good and the houses are attractive. The only downside (which is true of any mountain development) is the isolation of living on a mmountain. Also depending on where you actually bought you could find yourself isolated from the sun for some of the day as the urbanisation generally faces North East. This is not a problem in the Summer but right now it can get very cold so make sure you have heating of some sort.

    Good luck and if you want any advice about the area drop me a line

    Regards

    Vince
