Costa del Azahar most favoured area in Spain for home purchases according to Rightmove Overseas

Despite current economic uncertainty, it’s no surprise that Spain is still considered one of the best destinations in which to purchase a home abroad with the Costa del Azahar topping the list of areas in which investors wish to purchase homes according to a recent survey from Rightmove Overseas.

The Costa del Azahar, north of the Costa Blanca and literally translated as the ‘Orange blossom’ coast has started to grab the attention of international property buyers recently. As one of the lesser known areas of Spain, the Costa del Azahar affords an abundance of treasures yet to be discovered, perfect for those who want avoid the heavy tourist crowds associated with the Costa del Sol and the Costa Blanca.

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Manager Taylor Wimpey España, comments,

“One of the great things about the Costa del Azahar is that fact that it has maintained all that is authentic about Spain. The coast has upheld its appeal with people and activities still in keeping with Spanish culture and tradition – something that appeals to second-home buyers who want to immerse themselves in the true Spanish way of life.

“Given the region is relatively off the tourist radar when compared to its more southerly cousins, property prices in this part of Spain remain reasonable and very good value for money. Our latest development located in Alcossebre on the Costa del Azahar – a first for us – affords a highly sort after frontline location with direct access to the sea matched with an affordable price tag – a perfect combination for buyers looking for something special that won’t break the bank!”

While the Costa del Azahar provides beautiful pristine beaches many of which fly Blue Flags, inland visitors can discover the exceptional beauty of quaint villages and the rugged mountains of Castellon, the second most mountainous province in Spain. However, one of its most popular destinations for those looking for something away from the masses is the small coastal village of Alcossebre.

Pritchard explains,

“Alcossebre is one of the few towns in the area that is not fully built-up. There aren’t too many large buildings around so a peaceful and natural landscape exists with a variety of unspoiled beaches to choose from. What’s more, potential second home buyers will be pleased to know that house prices in Alcossebre were 15.8% less expensive in Q1 2012 than the national average of Spain according to recent figures from the number one portal for Spanish property,”
