Costa Blanca

Spain has always been the favourite choice with holiday makers. 75,000,000 visitors are expected to visit Spain this year with around 35,000,000 of those coming from the UK who are taking advantage of the short and inexpensive flights to and from Spain from the UK. Flight times of around two hours enable convenient long weekends away spent relaxing and having fun in the sun. With cheap and plentiful flights even from smaller more convenient regional airports from the UK all year around, it is very easy to get to.
 
Also driving to Spain from the UK is a well-used and viable option. Many people wanting to stay for extended periods drive down to Spain either through France or via the ferry terminals of Santander and Bilbao. Spain has a very modern and integrated transport system and the road system is quick and easy to navigate. 
 
Many visitors come to enjoy the beautiful beaches and warm hospitality of the Spanish people. Spain enjoys over 320 days of sunshine every year. Just imagine spending endless days relaxing under cloudless skies!  Guaranteed good weather is the number one reason people come to Spain but there are many more reasons Spain has something for everyone as proved by the fact it is the second most visited country in the world and why Brits have been both holidaying and buying properties here since the 1960s.
 
Spain is a very healthy place generally to live and the World Health Organisation (WHO) recognises the Costa Blanca, which boasts a special micro climate as one of the healthiest places in the world to live.  Many thousands of people with ailments such as arthritis and respiratory problems visit and live in the Costa Blanca for its health benefits.
 
Spain enjoys a lower cost of living than the UK, making it cheaper to enjoy eating out, a very popular pastime here with both visitors and locals alike, but the costs of owning and running property are a fraction of that in the UK. Electricity and water cost less and the rates for a 2-bedroom apartment will be around €200 for a year (example is in the Costa Blanca South).
 
Easy and quick to get to from the UK with some of the cheapest flight costs for European destinations.
 
Spain boasts a wonderful cultural heritage going back over a thousand years which you could spend a lifetime exploring. 
 
Spain has lots to offer property purchasers seeking a safe real estate market with high rental potential. 75,000,000 visitors per year is more than the population of the UK.  over 60% of visitors to the Costa Blanca choose to stay in private rental accommodation rather than hotels.
 
The Spanish property market has long been popular amongst British and Irish buyers who have traditionally favoured the Costa Blanca and Costa Del Sol where many of the 170,000 British and Irish who own property in Spain have bought and enjoy their property in the sun. 
 
Spain is by far the most popular destination for UK citizens to purchase overseas property, over 35% of all property owned by Brits overseas is in Spain. The next most popular place to buy overseas France pales into insignificance at 16%.
 
A university post Brexit survey has found that many people especially young families, and 10% of all young professionals aged 24 – 31 were actively looking to leave the UK. Spain was the top European destination people wanted to relocate to, coming third top destination in the world after America and Australia.
