Andalusia covers almost the entire bottom quarter of Spain. Moreover, for many it’s the “real” Spain, of flamenco, tapas, the Alhambra, lilting guitars and fighting bulls, and, of course, the Costa del Sol.
“You’re in Spain. You can’t expect everyone to speak English, and an attempt at some Spanish will definitely be appreciated by the locals. It will also make your early days in Spain a lot easier – take it from me!” says Ailsa, a Spanish homeowner who is now 15 years into her Spanish language learning journey.
Spain has 10 costas, so there is plenty of choice! But which would suit you best? We put the question to two estate agents – one from the Costa del Sol, which you can read here – and one from Costa Blanca. Here, Karsten Ryder from Vincent Real Estate, based in Benijofar in the south Costa Blanca, tells us about the lifestyle, the joys of living on the Mediterranean coast and why you should move to Costa Blanca!
The question everyone is asking, both in Spain and abroad, is when will we be able to travel again with the minimum of restrictions? The hospitality industry here is suffering tremendously. The Spanish government has just announced an €11 billion aid package for small businesses in the tourism sector and for bars and restaurants to help them survive before Spain welcomes back tourists.
Spain has so many different types of places to buy: farmhouses out in the countryside, mountain chalets, beach apartments, city lofts, fishermen’s cottages, villas, urbanisations, golf courses and resort-type developments. There really is something for everyone. We recently looked at property on golf courses, and this week we take a look at life in a resort.
