It seems Spain is still a firm favourite with holidaymakers from around the globe, with the beautiful Costa Blanca continuing to attract a wealth of visitors. The most recent figures released by the Central Statistics Unit show that the amount spent in the region of Valencia, by visitors from overseas, is calculated to have been an impressive 785 million euros. This is an increase of 17.6% in comparison to the same month last year.
The rise in spending throughout the Comunidad Valenciana (Valencia Region) could partly be due to tourists deciding to stay longer in comparison to 2015, 6.7% longer in September alone. And as many visitors extend their trips to sunny Spain, a growing number of them are deciding on a more permanent purchase.
Leading Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey España have certainly experienced an influx of interest for the Costa Blanca region and have this week launched their newest phase of development at the Brisas de Alenda Golf residential complex in Elche, Alicante.
This private complex of beautiful 3 bedroom townhouses combines the tranquil area of the neighbouring Alenda Golf Course with the more lively beachfront nightlife easily accessible in nearby Alicante. It boasts generous private gardens, a communal swimming pool and a club house as well as a gym, bar and restaurant with prices from just €145,000+VAT.
Excited to unveil this latest phase of development, Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España, comments,
“Not only are more people visiting Spain but many are now being wooed by its charm and staying longer than before. The Costa Blanca continues to be an extremely popular area for prospective buyers, with many making a number of visits before final decisions are made on property.”
However it’s not just the sun, sea and sangria that is appealing to overseas buyers, the Costa Blanca’s first class golfing facilities are the perfect setting for all those keen to tee off as often as possible. The Alenda Golf Course, next to the Brisas de Alenda Golf development, was recommended for the Golfers’ Choice leading golf courses award for 2016, offering golfers a picturesque 18 holes with a par of 72.
“We are thrilled to launch a new phase of development at Brisas de Alenda Golf as demand for the region continues to grow, and look forward to welcoming new residents to the site.”
All the Brisas de Alenda townhouses have fully-furnished kitchens, equipped with a vitro-ceramic hob, extractor hood and oven as well as air-conditioning with pre-installation of heat pump, and fitted out wardrobes. Each property is split across 2 storeys with 2 bathrooms and 1 additional toilet, as well as a terrace, private garden area and parking place.
Perfect for all day dining, the terraces are either surrounded by the spectacular Sierra de las Aguilas Mountains, or the stunning view over the golf course. Within the Alenda Golf complex residents will have access to a small supermarket, restaurant and bar, clubhouse, fitness centre and paddle tennis courts. Due to its prime location, it is just 15 minutes from the golden beaches of Alicante, Alicante Airport and the town of Elche.
