British expats: ‘Best area’ in Spain’s Costa del Sol
British expats: ‘Best area’ in Spain’s Costa del Sol for Britons – ‘just breathtaking’
SPAIN’s Costa del Sol has always been one of the most popular destinations for British expats. But which are the best areas?
Around 60,000 British expats live in Spain’s sunny Costa del Sol. But when it comes to choosing a destination to settle in, there are a couple of areas that deserve attention.
Express.co.uk spoke to the sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey España, about the charms of the Costa del Sol.
He told Express.co.uk: “When it comes to the best area in which to purchase property in Spain, the Costa del Sol is stealing the limelight right now.
“Between its stunning beaches, championship-quality golf courses, 300 days of sunshine per year and superb local cuisine, the area is packed with appeal.
“It’s also easy to reach from the UK and provides something for everyone, from serene landscapes to bustling towns and cities.”
Many budget airlines offer cheap flights to the Costa del Sol from most major UK airports.
Expats will be able to visit family and friends in the UK regularly, providing there are no more travel restrictions.
While there are many popular areas to purchase property in the Costa del Sol, Marc said there are a couple of areas he would recommend.
He said: “In terms of locations within the Costa del Sol to buy property, both Mijas and Estepona warrant a close look.
“The beauty of the mountainous Mijas municipality is just breathtaking, while there’s something quintessentially Spanish about the whitewashed houses covered with bright flowers through which Estepona’s streets wind.”
The beautiful town of Mijas is situated between the popular holiday destinations of Fuengirola and Marbella.
Meanwhile, Estepona is one of the Costa del Sol’s most attractive resort towns with a palm lined promenade.
Estepona’s town centre is famous for its charming flower filled square and fishing port.
