Lovely sunny Spain has been a favourite place for tourists during decades, and Costa del Sol is one of the most popular destinations. Since the economic crash the area has seen a major decrease in property prices, coming to an all-time low in 2014.
In the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017 we are experiencing a new wave of optimism and buyers are investing more than in many years. This positive trend is leading to a slight increase in property prices and the prognosis is pointing upwards.
There has never been a better time to find your dream home or to make an investment on The Costa del Sol!
Costa del Sol
The Spanish Sunshine Coast stretches from Nerja in the east to Manilva in the west, a distance of 200 kilometers where the Mediterranean sea meets the Atlantic. It is easy to see why the coast got the name “Coast of the Sun”, with it´s 320 days of sunshine per year!
The two major cities are Málaga and Marbella, both bustling with life all year round.
Málaga is an old port town with lots of ancient history such as the mooric castle and the cathedral. You can also find an abundance of lovely museums ranging from glass to cars to the Pompidou! Being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso it also harbours two museums with his name, one being his childhood house, both in the historic city centre. Málaga is a very culture oriented city, with both a fashion festival and a film festival of its own.
Marbella is the hot spot for celebrities and is also host to several festivals during the year, one being Starlite Marbella. It also has a big port with luxurious yachts. In Marbella you can enjoy an international cuisine and fashionable shopping alongside traditional spanish fish and tapas dishes.
All along the coastline the villages and small cities adorn the landscape, each with its own flair and flavour. In the mountains behind you can find picturesque villages, extraordinary views and the original spanish life. You can visit lovely vinyards and honey- or oliveoil producers.
Mijas is a true gem, a white washed village in the mountains above Fuengirola.
The Costa del Sol is often referred to as the Costa del Golf, as there is no shortage of fantastic golf courses in the most magnificent surroundings.
