There are a lot of reasons to come and buy a property on the Costa Del Sol. The tourism here gives an obvious indication that the Costa Del Sol is always popular, year on year. With its huge selection of beautiful beaches, white villages, amazing scenery, mouth-wateringly good Spanish restaurants… we could go on!
Little wonder then, that so many of Costa del Sol tourists become spontaneous buyers; they love it here so much that they find themselves looking for a second home on the Costa Del Sol. It might be a luxury apartment in Marbella, beach view villa, or a traditional cottage in the white villages (pueblos blancos). There are merits to all of these choices… and granted, it can be difficult to choose one!
Life can become one long holiday
For some buyers, it’s a no brainer. Sure, we all want to make it a full time thing, living on the sunshine coast, turning our lives into holidays… If you have the option, then so you should! Life is short, after all.
However, it isn’t always a viable option for those with commitments in their home countries. Fortunately, where there’s a will there’s a way – and Paradise Marbella has some ideas about how to find that way. You could consider buying one of the properties for sale on the Costa del Sol as your second home, for example!
The Malaga Province offers a wealth of attractions
Marbella is certainly one of the main attractions in the Malaga Province, no matter what the time of year. But then so is Malaga itself. Marbella has a reputation for being the more glamourous of the areas, with its Golden Mile and Puerto Banus harbour; celebrities frequent the area for parties and shopping, which can make interesting viewing for the tourists, locals and expats alike!
Those who want a more quiet life often consider purchasing a second home a little further out than Marbella, in some of the quieter areas like Benahavis, Fuengirola or Calahonda. There are so many beautiful Costa del Sol properties for sale – the choice is yours.
These areas have many attractions of their own, but residents would probably agree that they’re a little more ‘chilled out’. Whether you situate yourself in Marbella or elsewhere in the Malaga province, there are so many other interesting places surrounding it that you will never be short of things to do.
The area has widespread appeal; it’s not just the rich and famous and the tourists that are attracted to Costa del Sol; often people will choose it for their retirement; after all, where else would they want to spend their remaining years?
Buying a Costa del Sol property is an investment
Not only are you guaranteeing yourself a wonderful holiday each year – however many times you can get away – you are also making an investment. Perhaps your dream property will become your Spanish home one day, when you retire. Perhaps you will rent the property to other holidaymakers and make a return on your investment. There are so many possibilities!
Prices are still affordable at the moment, although with increasing popularity they are starting to rise again; so now is probably the perfect time to invest in your Costa del Sol Villa or beach view apartment!
Why else might you buy a second home on the Costa del Sol?
Well, if those reasons weren’t tempting enough, there are plenty of other reasons that the Costa del Sol appeals to foreign buyers looking to settle abroad – whether that is full or part time, now or later.
We can think of a few benefits to having permanent access to a place of your own on the Sunshine Coast:
- 320 days of sunshine each year
- A chilled, cosmopolitan atmosphere
- Fabulous cuisines of all kinds, local and foreign
- Sandy beaches and clear blue waters
- Countless sporting activities and wellness centres
- Beautiful nature parks and mountains to hike
- Events, workshops, concerts and entertaining activities galore
