Spain’s rural holiday villas ‘falling out of favour’
Spanish rural holiday villas are falling out of popularity, a leading developer claims.
With 80% of properties sold in Spain in 2014 being flats or apartments, according to General Council of Notaries data, the days of the rural holiday villa are numbered, according to Taylor Wimpey España.
In addition, apartment buyers want shops and restaurants and internet access just as much as beach access, says the developer, which has seen cumulative sales rise by around 28% year-on-year in July 2015.
Sales and Marketing Director says, “Buyers are much more discerning than they used to be when it comes to property type and location. Remote, isolated villas are falling out of favour as second homeowners’ demands have changed.
