Costa del Sol's Property Specialists

About the Costa del Sol

About the Costa del SolThe Costa del Sol is often referred to as the Costa del Golf due to the numerous quality golf courses that span the entire area. Alongside these golf courses you will find that many developers have tastefully constructed all types of property such as villas, town houses and apartment blocks which surround and complement these golf courses. With such diversity it is easy to see why the Costa del Sol has become the year-round tourist attraction that it is today. The Costa del Sol can take you through exclusive marinas such as Sotogrande and Puerto Banus, fields of sunflowers, steep valleys, verdant fairways, citrus groves, deep lakes, historic cities and even snowy mountaintops.

Infrastructure on the Costa del Sol is also comparable, and in some cases better, than in most Northern European countries. Superb motorways, new roads, colleges, schools, hospitals, shopping centres, restaurants and cinemas can all be found on the Costa del Sol. Sports enthusiasts will not tire of the variety of activities available from golf and tennis to sailing, mountain biking & road cycling to fishing as well as an abundance of water sports and horse racing. Naturists can go for walks or hikes up the La Concha Mountain and for those who are “petrol heads” why not try quad-biking or motocross.

According to the latest forecast from FEDUR (Federacion Andaluza de Urbanizadores y Turismo Residential) it is estimated that 800,000 European families will buy a home in Andalucia over the next five years, many of these will choose to make the Costa del Sol their permanent or semi-permanent home. Working foreign residents from other EU countries can enjoy the benefits of state health care, pensions and the right to vote in local elections. Officially Southern Spain is the fastest growing migration area in Europe, meaning the demand for more permanent accommodation as a primary residence, has increased drastically in the last number of years. The introduction of low cost airlines has only fuelled the fire by giving their passengers, mainly Europeans, more routes and increasing the number of flights per day to keep up with the record number of passengers wishing to travel to this destination.

Spain is no longer just for those wishing to retire, but home to an ever increasing young, vibrant population.
