Taylor Wimpey España reveals latest holiday home trends, as buyers seek more than property alone
Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has revealed insights into holiday home buyers’ top priorities when it comes to their international property purchasing decisions.
“With 65 years’ experience of building holiday homes in Spain, we have seen plenty of changes to buyers’ preferences and priorities. Right now, buyers are demanding a flexible choice of property types and layouts, to enable a range of different holiday styles.”

As a result of this varied buyer demand, Taylor Wimpey España is building a wide range of property types, from spacious apartments to airy townhouses, serving a variety of price points. Apartments at Solana Village South at La Cala Golf Resort, for example, are priced from €370,000 plus VAT. The south-facing apartments have large terraces with glass balcony enclosures to maximise the delightful views of the golf course. Ground floor homes also have private gardens with views of the pool, resort gardens and golf course.
Meanwhile, another of Taylor Wimpey España’s developments at La Cala, which is located in Mijas, Malaga, is providing three-storey townhouses with large solariums and pretty gardens. The homes at Belaria are priced from €572,000 plus VAT, and come with three bedrooms, open plan kitchen and living spaces and a basement that can be used flexibly as a home office, games room or whatever best suits owners’ needs.
While needs vary in terms of property type and layout, some features are popular with all buyers. Terraces with panoramic views are one such example, as is proximity to a pretty, family-friendly beach.
Many buyers are also prioritising on-site relaxation and fitness amenities at present – a trend which has been prominent since the pandemic, according to the Taylor Wimpey España team.
“Spending time outdoors and keeping fit and healthy – both physically and mentally – took on a new importance during the pandemic. That trend continues to this day, with buyers seeking access to facilities that support their wellbeing goals.”
