It is a dream of so many to own a holiday home in a warm climate on the Mediterranean. Others are searching to find a property that can give them a second income and a great return on investment. Then, with the change in working practices after the pandemic, many are looking to relocate to warmer climes than their native countries.

There are many different reasons why people buy property on the Costa delSol.

But why choose the Costa Del Sol instead of other parts of Southern Spain or Portugal?

  • Malaga airport is a globally linked hub with flights to all parts of Europe year-round. Many airports in the other touristic areas of Spain and Portugal operate seasonally and flying in and out in the winter can be a challenge .
  • The Costa del Sol has many traditional established towns like Fuengirola, Malaga, Marbella and Estepona, which makes it a vibrant area to visit, eat and drink all year round. The parts of Spain and Portugal that are more package holiday focused tend to be a lot quieter during the winter. 
  • On the Costa del Sol, most shops, bars and restaurants and beach restaurants are open all year round from Malaga all the way down to Sotogrande.
  • The weather is a key reason for people wanting a holiday home and the Costa del Sol enjoys one of the world’s best year-round climates.
  •  Malaga city, the capital of the Costa Del Sol, is a thriving, forward looking cosmopolitan city. Recent international surveys have placed Malaga amongst the finest cities in the world.
  • The Costa del Sol gives amazing accessibility to the rest of Spain, Europe and Africa. It is only two and half hours by train from Malaga to Spain’s capital Madrid. You can reach the beautiful city of Sevilla in just two and a half hours. You can travel to Barcelona and all of the way through to the rest of Europe from Malaga’s Maria Zambrano station.
  • From Sotogrande, the beautiful old town of Tarifa is about 45 minutes away. From Tarifa you can jump on a ferry and be in Morocco in North Africa in less than half an hour.
  • The Costa del Sol is also a golfer’s paradise during the winter months. There are more than 70 golf courses from Malaga all the way down to Sotogrande
