More buyers are choosing to invest in a home where they can play this socially distanced sport.
However, for British buyers, Spain’s Costa del Sol still retains a magnetic pull, with 70 golf courses along the coast and inland. “All but one of our Costa del Sol developments has a golf course. In a post-pandemic world, buyers are looking to the fairways to provide them with exercise, space and fresh air,” says Marc Pritchard of Taylor Wimpey España, whose developments include Sun Valley at La Cala Golf Resort in Mijas (taylorwimpeyspain.com), with two-bedders from €241,000. “Various golf resorts in the Murcia and Almeria regions are still struggling from the last crisis, but frontline properties on the Costa del Sol are getting expensive again, so people are looking to golf resorts up to a maximum of six miles inland.”
The Costa Blanca coast around Alicante also offers some of Spain’s best-value new golf properties, including Taylor Wimpey España’s Kiruna Residencial scheme at Alenda Golf in Elche, where three-bedroom townhouses start at €189,000 (taylorwimpeyspain.com).
