Sunshine, quiet beaches and wine tasting – welcome to September in Spain

For those without school-age children, September is the ideal time to head to Europe for some autumn sunshine. Here in the UK, the temperature is dropping and the nights are drawing in, but Spain still has sunshine in abundance.

“September in Spain means low-cost travel, quieter beaches and golf courses and plentiful sunshine. The summer crowds are dissipating and it’s time to experience this fabulous country in a more relaxed fashion. From lingering over meals on pretty terraces to cooling dips in the pool, visitors can take the time to enjoy Spain at its very best.”

September is also the ideal time for wine connoisseurs to visit Spain. At locations around the country, visitors can enjoy the experience of collecting and treading grapes as part of the annual wine harvest, with plenty of opportunities for tasting sessions. Mallorca even hosts a grape-throwing festival as part of the harvesting celebrations.

For second home buyers, the autumn months still afford plenty of opportunities to enjoy spending time on outdoor terraces, such as those at the key-ready homes of La Floresta Sur, which were designed and built by leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España.

Located by the beautiful Elviria Beach in Marbella, the apartments deliver outstanding sea views from their spacious terraces, along with lush communal gardens and communal pool. The development is also just a 10-minute drive from two of the best-known golf courses on the Costa del Sol: La Cala Golf Resort and Santa Maria Golf. It also boasts direct access to El Soto Golf Club, the facilities of which all La Floresta Sur residents can access free of charge.

Interiors at La Floresta Sur are roomy and flooded with light, with thermal and acoustic insulation and air-conditioning. The latter both cools and heats, making these apartments ideal for year-round enjoyment. Prices start from €222,000 plus VAT for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home with southeast orientation.

September in Spain is particularly exciting for those who like to spend their down time on the beach. The average sea temperature in September is as warm as it is in July in many coastal areas, if not warmer. Along the Costa del Sol, it averages 22°C, according to Holiday Weather. And with the summer crowds all back at work and school, beaches are comparatively quiet.

“For those holidaying in Spain over the summer months and dreaming of a more permanent base in the country, autumn is the ideal time to visit and experience what life is like here in a new season. Second home ownership brings with it the potential for year-round access, so it’s important to invest in a property that delivers a superb holiday experience throughout the seasons, not just during the summer.”
