Foreign demand for property on the Costa del Sol continues to rise, but why do people buy? The main reasons are the excellent climate, the quality of life, the infrastructure, its leisure and sport diversity and facilities, the local gastronomy and, of course, the affordable prices.
Costa del Sol Weather
In winter, while the rest of Spain and Europe is cold and covered with snow, here in the south we have mild temperatures. Perhaps it is one of the reasons why many of our northern neighbours come to spend part of their long, cold winter months here, on the Costa del Sol. We have more than 300 days of sunshine a year, allowing us to enjoy long walks along the quiet Mediterranean beaches and even practising a wide range of outdoor sports. In summer, places like Marbella and Sotogrande offer an ostentatious social scene, acclaimed by many European and Hollywood stars, including famous sports personalities, blending with the unique and relaxed Spanish lifestyle.
Costa del Sol Infrastructure
We benefit from fantastic infrastructure, an excellent road system, first class medical services, international schools, luxury shops and of course … numerous golf courses along the coast, clearly a reason to be called Costa del Golf. In addition, we have excellent airport connections. To the East, we have the international airport of Malaga and to the West we have the airport of Gibraltar. Both offer daily flights to major international cities.
Costa del Sol Cuisine
No less important is the culinary offering … which is impressive. The Andalusian cuisine is marked by traditional recipes, although innovation and avant-garde are becoming popular, reinventing traditional food with the use of new textures and presentation. Balancing between modernity and tradition, the Andalusian cuisine is now considered at the same level as the most prestigious international cuisines. Take Dani García for example, who, with his innovative cuisine of traditional flavors of the south, has won numerous prizes including three Michelin stars, two of them in his own restaurant in Marbella.
In a few words, the Costa del Sol is simply a modern-day paradise, come and experience it for yourself.
