Why do so many of us dream about owning a villa in Spain, well the answer is very simple: all year round sunshine and a better way of life. The most popular area to buy in is the Costa Brava, stretching along the coast to Barcelona. Although property may seem a little more expensive in this area, you have to understand the reasons why. The region is extremely popular with investors looking for property to rent, receiving an income plus, hopefully, a capital return. Also, it is the perfect place to buy a house or apartment as a holiday home, perhaps fully furnished and easy to rent out, so that it will pay for its own upkeep.
Costa Brava means ‘the rugged coast’ and is often described as Spain’s most sophisticated region. Many of the resorts have origins as small fishing villages and have retained their charm, whilst fulfilling the most demanding holiday maker or investor demands. The beaches are incredibly beautiful, with little secluded coves: towns such as Blanes, Lloret de Mar, Platja d"Aro, Tossa de Mar and Begur offer a mixture of ancient castles, bustling squares, cafés, markets and superb nightlife - perfect resorts to buy a house for holidays or as a sound investment.
Then, just a short drive away, is the exciting city of Barcelona - extremely popular with investors and city lovers, both foreign and Spanish. If you prefer hustle and bustle, shopping in chic boutiques, an extravagant nightlife and an exceptional rental yield, then look no further. It is also possible to find, through Damlex Realty, apartments in gated communities, close to Barcelona’s 4.2 kilometre beach, that offer stunning sea views and use of a communal pool. There has never been a more exciting time for buying a villa in Spain.
