Buyers now have a million more reasons to head to the “Garden of the Costa del Sol”

  • 1 million new flowers planted as part of Estepona beautification project
  • ‘Garden of the Costa del Sol’ attracting international interest
  • Estepona homes offer exceptional value as prices rise across Spain


The Spanish town of Estepona has opened its doors to the world, after undergoing an extensive beautification process. Located in Malaga province, Estepona already offered plentiful sunshine, restaurants serving fresh, healthy Mediterranean dishes, superb golfing and a breadth of local amenities. Now, the town has enacted an ambitious plan to reinvent itself as the ‘Garden of the Costa del Sol,’ with notable effect.

Local people have planted as many as a million flowers around the town, while school children have planted trees and local artists have painted vast murals. The town council has also pedestrianised a number of streets, providing residents and visitors with more space to explore its charms on foot.

Estepona has always been an attractive location for homebuyers from overseas as a result of its excellent golf courses and coastal location. Now, the streets have been given new life with the scent of a million additional flowers – the visual impact is truly stunning and it’s been fantastic to see how the whole community has come together to make their town even more charming for all those who live and visit there.

Community spirit is something that has been lost from many English towns and it is refreshing to see it is still alive and well in Estepona. This was a key consideration when leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España was designing its latest project in the area – Green Golf. The private, gated development has been created to engender a real sense of community among residents, with facilities including communal gardens and shared pools.

Green Golf is also in keeping with Estepona’s recent beautification. Not only do the 3 bedroom townhouses overlook the rich natural beauty of Estepona Golf (where residents can enjoy special privileges on all facilities and services), but they also feature an abundance of beautiful shrubs and flowers for residents to enjoy. The buildings themselves are also in tune with nature, from the low-rise scale of the development to the natural ventilation system, solar panels and thermal insulation.

“We’re delighted to present such a visually engaging development at Green Golf, with its landscaping and golf and sea views. As house prices rise in Spain, many UK buyers are seeking out just these kind of idyllic homes to use as holiday properties and main residences, with one eye on their use now and another on their future potential.”

Figures from the Spanish real estate analysts at Tinsa show that Spanish property prices increased by an average of 3.6% in the year to March 2018. However, they remain 37.2% below their 2007 peak. This combination of facts is tempting many buyers – both domestic and foreign – to move with confidence when it comes to Spanish property.

Taylor Wimpey España is working with UK buyers looking for holiday homes and primary residences that offer the potential for capital growth, and Green Golf is precisely what many of those buyers have in mind. The spacious, light-filled homes with their plush, high-end interiors are proving particularly popular as more and more buyers discover the charms of Estepona.
