Since then, the country has done just that, with its improving economy out of recession, property prices beginning to climb and demand from buyers soaring.

Taylor Wimpey España comments “Coastal areas and those offering top class sporting experiences such as the golf courses of the Costa del Sol have seen a definite upturn in terms of enquiries and sales during 2014.
