What are your ‘must-haves’ when searching for a Spanish home? For many people, a large swimming pool for the whole family to enjoy is number one, often at the expense of garden space.
While swimming pools have many benefits, having a good-sized garden, that isn’t completely taken over by a pool, has many perks too. Think al fresco dining, sunbathing and growing your own fruit and veg!
What we’re trying to say is, don’t overlook the advantages of a garden when searching for your Spanish home.
Check out these ten Spanish properties for sale that all have beautifully maintained and spacious gardens. Don’t worry, many still enjoy a sizeable pool so you won’t have to go without your swimming fix!
