For families with school-age children, August is the last chance to escape the daily grind and head off into Europe to catch some summer sun. It’s a month for long, dreamy days spent on the beach, fabulous al fresco meals with the sound of the sea in the background and catching up on everything from the latest bestselling novel to some much-needed sleep.
August is also the month to start turning those ‘wouldn’t it be nice to own a second home here’ dreams into reality, according to Spanish property portal .
August is the best month to take to the water in Alicante, with an average sea temperature of 26°C making swimming and splashing around in the shallows an enjoyable experience for the whole family. For those who can’t bear to leave the beach behind when their holiday ends, developer Taylor Wimpey España is offering south-facing, frontline apartments at Panorama Mar in Punta Prima, Torrevieja. With generous terraces and magnificent sea views, the apartments blend beautiful, spacious interiors with communal features such as three on-site swimming pools, children’s playground and landscaped gardens.
