Hi and welcome,

My daughter lives outside Alicante and she says it's the best thing she has ever done., children go to state school and love it.
Spanish is a must... if you don't speak it start learning now.

The Northern Costa Blanca Denia / Javea / Gandia areas is right between Valencia and Alicante airport. Personally I dont like the Alicante area (city) myself. Javea & Denia are both tourist spots, Denia being one of the ferry ports for Ibiza & majorca. Your six year old is probably of a suitable age to start in a state school and will learn the language quickly. However if your 17 year old is still at school / in education then you will need to find an english speaking alternative International school unless he speaks good spanish
