“Buying a Spanish property from Taylor Wimpey España means more than investing in a stunning home in a great location, it means you’ll be calm and carefree”.

That’s the commitment made by Taylor Wimpey España, the Spanish arm of one of the UK’s leading and most trusted housebuilders, established almost 60 years ago in 1958.

Constantly evolving and changing to remain the very best, buying a home in Spain has never been easier due to the trust and confidence that many Brits have with this household name.

The expert team at Taylor Wimpey ensure that buying a property in Spain is easy and efficient from start to finish with one of their homes consultants in regular contact with clients every step of the way.

More than 4,000 happy clients can testify their satisfaction, in fact 98% have stated that they would buy again from Taylor Wimpey España.

The longstanding company is nonetheless constantly changing with the times and making sure that it is developing in order to meet the needs of 21st century Spanish homeowners. The company’s recent initiative to brand their developments with names that reflect the unique identity of each project is proving a popular and worthwhile campaign.

Behind the scenes, the Taylor Wimpey España team hold competitions to decide on the name of a new development, enabling everyone involved to get creative. Only once the team become familiar with the project and its unique appeals, are they comfortable naming it.

With the development brand names put to a vote, the lucky winner receives a prize to enjoy such as a dinner for two at a top restaurant. Recent developments launched in this manner include  Cala Vinyes Hills and Serenity on the Balearic Island of Mallorca, Arenal Dream on the Costa Blanca and  Botanic on the Costa del Sol.

Cala Vinyes Hills and Arenal Dream are aptly named with links to the stunning areas in which they are located – In Cala Vinyes, the development slopes down into the warm crystal waters of the Mediterranean and the ‘dream’ apartments are close to Arenal Beach in charming Javea, near Alicante.

The homes of Botanic, located in the ecological La Reserva de Alcuzcuz, Benahavis, are surrounded by a variety of trees and unique botanical gardens representing the five continents. Finally, Serenity is set in the most gorgeous and tranquil part of Mallorca and allows buyers to live in complete ‘serenity’.

“Just one year shy of our 60 wonderful years of service, providing homes in Spain, we have made some big changes, to not only peoples’ lives by providing dream homes, but to the way we deliver those homes. “By involving the team that have worked firsthand on the sites and know the areas inside out, the naming of Taylor Wimpey España developments has become very personal and speaks volumes for the feel of the homes on sale.

“We have noticed that this approach is really helping our team create a personal connection with the developments as well as customers having a clearer idea of the homes they are purchasing and our vision. Taylor Wimpey enjoyed an amazing 2016, celebrating double operating profit to a massive £20.6 million and we are keen to carry on with this success for the next 60 years!’

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director, Taylor Wimpey España

This month will see the return of Taylor Wimpey’s annual Charity Challenge as employees from across the UK and Spain take part in a weekend filled with testing trekking.

This year two teams from Taylor Wimpey España will participate in the Tizzie Wizzie Challenge set in the beautiful Lake District.

Legend has it that a Tizzie Wizzie is a shy mini-monster, said to live on the shores of Lake Windermere, with the body of a hedgehog, tail of a squirrel and the wings of a bee. Although the teams aren’t guaranteed a sighting, they will compete in an inter-BU ‘It’s a knockout’ which will include activities such as zorb football, Segway racing and monster volleyball.

After a detailed safety briefing the teams will set off the following morning on their 14 Peak Challenge, with a target time of just 10 hours!

All teams are required to fundraise a minimum amount in order to take part and once again the two teams representing  Taylor Wimpey España have chosen to support the Youth Adventure Trust. The charity helps vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to gain the skills, confidence and courage needed in order to face the challenges in their daily lives.

Established in 1992 by David Hempleman-Adams and Major Richard Mitchell, both well known for their record breaking Arctic, Antarctic and mountain climbing expeditions, the Youth Adventure Trust provides young people with the opportunity to start the ‘believe – achieve’ process and make the most of their lives.

With the main event this weekend, the Taylor Wimpey España teams have raised almost €5,300! And this figure is set to rise before the challenge’s conclusion.

“The Taylor Wimpey Challenge has become a key event on the company calendar with many employees looking forward to the opportunity to participate. This year we were delighted to have two teams representing the Spanish division of the company.

“As well as being able to develop essential team building skills, the challenge gives Taylor Wimpey employees the opportunity to give something back to the community. We wish them all the very best on the trek and are extremely proud of our Taylor Wimpey España team’s involvement.”

Every year countries across the world eagerly await the awarding of Blue Flags to their beaches and marinas.

The Blue Flag is an internationally recognised eco-label that identifies a beach as clean, safe and committed to sustainability, based on strict criteria addressing water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, and safety and other services.

This year, Spain has once more been awarded more Blue Flags than any other country in the world – 684 in total.

Spain values its reputation as having the world’s best beaches and has topped the league table from the Foundation for Environmental Education (the body that awards the Blue Flags) since it was first launched in 1987.

The Communidad Valencia received the most Blue Flags in Spain with 129, followed by Galicia with 133 and Cataluna with 95 – the same trend as in 2016.

“It is wonderful to once again see the Comunidad Valencia receive the most awards in Spain with 129 Blue Flags. Alicante and its award-winning beaches is a hotspot for holiday makers and those looking to buy a holiday home in Spain.

“Punta Prima beach, just south of Alicante, with its fine sandy beaches and clean waters has for example been awarded a Blue Flag for 2017 and our stunning La Recoleta III and Panorama Mar developments have the ideal frontline location to enjoy its sea, sand and sunshine.”
