Insta-ready Spanish holiday homes to move into this summer

Spain ,
  • Taylor Wimpey España announces summer special offer on 3 Costa del Sol developments
  • Key-ready homes available for use this summer
  • One family so delighted they convinced their friends to buy too

With more than 60 years’ experience, leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has just launched its summer sales campaign, with three special offers available for buyers looking for holiday homes in the Costa del Sol.

Penthouses at La Floresta Sur, in Elviria, are available for 5% less than their usual price, now starting from €370,000 plus VAT. Apartments in the same development are now available from €222,000 plus VAT.  Summer special offers of 8%, meanwhile, have been applied to the company’s three-bedroom apartments at Botanic, in Benahavis (prices from €355,000 plus VAT), and to the three-bedroom townhouses at Horizon Golf, at La Cala Golf in Mijas (available from €399,000 plus VAT).

We have applied special offers to a selection of key-ready homes in order to help buyers achieve their dream of owning a Spanish holiday home in time for the summer season. This is our busiest time of year, so we expect these properties to sell fast, particularly given the Costa del Sol’s continuing popularity.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Spain has seen visitor numbers rise markedly this year, with the latest projections from the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism anticipating an 8.9% increase in visitor numbers over the April to June 2019 period, with tourist spending growing at an even faster rate.

For those looking for more than just a few days in the sun, Taylor Wimpey España’s Instagram-worthy holiday homes tick all the right boxes. Horizon Golf’s superior construction quality and stylish finish were key drivers in Monique and Jean Pierre Vermeiren purchasing a home there. Not only that, but the couple spoke with such conviction and enthusiasm about their new Spanish holiday home that a friend was persuaded to purchase a penthouse in the same building.

“We put a great deal of thought into the design of our properties, making sure that they are ideally suited for a relaxing lifestyle. From large, south-facing terraces to the size of our communal pools, each home is designed for maximum enjoyment, so it’s hugely gratifying to hear such positive feedback from our buyers.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Along with key-ready holiday homes available in the Malaga/Marbella region, Taylor Wimpey España also has homes ready to move into in Villajoyosa, on the Costa Blanca in Alicante. The frontline, two-bedroom apartments at La Vila Paradis boast impressive sea views and direct access to Playa Paraiso Beach, while communal facilities include swimming pools, private parking and beautifully landscaped gardens.

For buyers looking for the perfect sun-kissed second home to enjoy this summer, the time is now!

Taylor Wimpey España invests almost €100 million across three Spanish regions in 2019

Spain ,
  • Mallorca and Ibiza investment totals €48.4 million
  • Canyamel Pins is latest island second home development on Mallorca
  • Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca also receiving considerable attention

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is on track to  invest €98.2 million in the first half of 2019, spread across its three main areas of activity: Mallorca/Ibiza, the Costa del Sol and the Costa Blanca. The expert residential housing developer has been building along the Spanish coast for 60 years. So far this year, the company has already launched four new Balearic Island sites, investing €48.4 million in second homes on Mallorca and Ibiza.

The latest development is Canyamel Pins, on Mallorca.  The new development is located in Capdepera, in the northeast of ​​the island. It follows the launch of Blue Cove, a complex of apartments and townhouses on the seafront in Cala Lliteras, Cala Vinyes Hills II, a selection of townhouses in Calviá and Sunset Ibiza, a residential apartment development on the seafront in Cala Gració, Ibiza.

Our first four Balearic developments this year have seen Taylor Wimpey España commit €48.4 million to the building of 140 new homes across Mallorca and Ibiza. Mallorca is one of our key areas, with strong demand from buyers seeking the ideal holiday home – one that combines the perfect location with quality, design and style.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Canyamel Pins is home to a selection of two- and three-bedroom apartments with two bathrooms. The contemporary residences combine traditional Mediterranean design with modern architecture and high-quality finishes. Room numbers, surface area and layout vary in order to meet a range of customer needs.

Built to Taylor Wimpey España’s strict quality standards, the apartments have large terraces, fully furnished and equipped kitchens and bathrooms with exquisite ceramic finishes and high-end fixtures and fittings. Just a few minutes’ walk from Canyamel beach and Canyamel Golf, the development includes extensive communal areas, with swimming pools and lush gardens. Each home also has its own parking space.

Apartments win out over villas as Taylor Wimpey España launches new Canyamel Pins homes in Mallorca

Apartments win out over villas as Taylor Wimpey España launches new Canyamel Pins homes in Mallorca

Spain ,
  • Spain now accounts for 21% of European second home purchases (Savills)
  • Canyamel Pins becomes 4th launch of 2019 for Taylor Wimpey España
  • Growing demand for smaller, cheaper second homes since 2013 makes case for apartments over villas

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has revealed details of its latest development in Mallorca – Canyamel Pins. The announcement comes as Savills reports a range of factors that point to apartments increasingly becoming more appealing than villas when it comes to second home ownership.

Just 0.4 km from Canyamel beach and 0.6 km from the 18-hole, par-73 course at Canyamel Golf, Canyamel Pins offers a selection of two- and three-bedroom apartments set in beautiful landscaped grounds complete with communal pool. The Mediterranean design blends with contemporary architecture and impeccable finishes in order to deliver spacious, modern homes with large terraces that are ideal for making the most of Mallorca’s abundant sunshine. Prices start from €342,000 plus VAT.

It has already been a busy year for the Taylor Wimpey España team. When not launching new developments (Canyamel Pins is their fourth so far in 2019), the team have been scaling the mountains of Wales in order to raise money for charity. The Challenge 2019 event saw teams from across Taylor Wimpey compete, with the Spanish delegation coming first in the TRIAL group and raising €5,944 for two good causes: The Youth Adventure Trust in the UK and DEBRA in Spain. Overall, Taylor Wimpey raised £200,000 as a result of its Challenge 2019 events.

“We’re delighted to be launching another Mallorca development, as demand for second homes on the island maintains its momentum. Buyers are keen to experience the very best that Mallorca has to offer, from its superb beaches to its pristine golf courses. That’s why we’ve chosen the location of Canyamel Pins so carefully – so that buyers can enjoy everything at their fingertips.” 

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

According to Savills’ Impacts: The Future of Global Real Estate report, smaller, cheaper properties have seen a notable increase in demand since 2013. The immediate aftermath of the global financial crisis saw capital-rich buyers focusing intently on prime locations and properties, but the easing of credit conditions over the following years has resulted in buyers looking at a wider range of more affordable locations and property types.

Apartments are particularly well suited to such buyers. Not only do they tend to be more affordable, but the upkeep costs are often lower, not to mention the hassle. Buying on a development where you can lock up and leave your second home and return to it weeks or even months later to find everything in perfect condition is often much more appealing than having to spend the first days of your holiday tackling a garden that has turned into a jungle during your absence.

Savills also points out Spain’s increasing importance as a destination for second home buyers. It now accounts for 21% of all second home sales within Europe, while back in 2011 the figure stood at just 11%. Buyers from Britain, Holland, Germany, Italy and Portugal (among others) all cited Spain as the top foreign destination for their next investment in response to the Savills survey.

“With Canyamel Pins, we’ve listened to what buyers want in property terms, as well as location terms. The apartments have been designed to offer a superb, relaxing holiday experience, from the layout of the rooms and terraces to the thermal and acoustic insulation. They will also work well for those buyers looking for second homes that combine affordability and convenience in a way that villa properties so often struggle to do. The result is, ultimately, more relaxing holidays – which is very much the point of owning a second home!”

Andalusia property sales up nearly 20% as buyers can’t get enough of the Costa del Sol

Andalusia property sales up nearly 20% as buyers can’t get enough of the Costa del Sol

Spain ,
  • Sales in Andalusia up 19.7% in year to March 2019 (INE)
  • Jet2 increasing UK-Spain flights by 10% this year
  • Appeal of traditional sunshine destinations remains strong (Taylor Wimpey España)

Property sales in Andalusia shot up by 19.7% in the year to March 2019, according to the latest figures from Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE). It seems that buyers just can’t get enough of the sun-kissed coastline, which is home to perennial favourites such as the Costa del Sol.

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has been building holiday homes along the Spanish Mediterranean coast for the past 60 years and has a deep-rooted understanding of just what it is that keeps holidaymakers and second home buyers coming back for more.

There’s no single factor that makes the Costa del Sol so appealing – rather, it’s the way that the area blends so many charms into one overall package. The beautiful climate is of course a major draw, as are the area’s outstanding Blue Flag beaches and multiple golf courses. The charm of the local towns is another key factor, as is the fantastic cuisine. And all of it at some of the most affordable prices in Europe.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Spain was the only country to enjoy three entries into the Post Office Holiday Costs Barometer in 2019, which ranks the cheapest holiday destinations in Europe. Torremolinos, Benidorm and Alicante made it in at positions four, five and ten respectively.

Not only that, but areas such as the Costa del Sol enjoy easy access from a wide range of European countries, ensuring that second home owners can quickly and cost effectively reach their properties. In 2019, doing so will be even easier, thanks to Jet2’s planned 10% expansion over the course of the year. The additional routes and flights will see the airline offering eight million seats between the UK and Spain. It follows Jet2’s growth of 20% during 2018.

Interestingly, Jet2’s expansion will see 54.3% more seats offered out of season during 2019, meaning that second home owners will find it even easier to enjoy their holiday properties year-round. Savills states in its latest Impacts: The Future of Global Real Estate report that “Air routes continue to have a profound impact on where people want to go and where people want to buy.” As such, the Jet2 expansion is excellent news for Spain’s tourism industry as a whole, as well as for areas such as the Costa del Sol which will benefit from increased seat numbers.

“One of the other appeals of the Costa del Sol is the sheer variety of holiday home options available. Buyers can opt for key-ready homes for instant holiday gratification or buy off-plan and enjoy having an input into the design process of their new second home.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Taylor Wimpey España offers both key-ready properties and off plan options along the Costa del Sol. La Floresta Sur is an excellent example of the former. The key-ready homes are available from €222,000 plus VAT. Just 0.5 km from El Soto Golf Club and within easy reach of Elviria Beach, the apartments are ideal for buyers looking to purchase and enjoy their second home as soon as possible. Taylor Wimpey España’s Horizon Golf site, in La Cala Golf Resort and Botanic, in Benahavis, are both also available for buyers looking to enjoy their second homes this summer, offering panoramic views in tranquil areas.

For those who prefer to buy off-plan, the outstanding three-bedroom homes of the latest phase of Green Golf are ideal. The frontline golf townhouses with southwest-facing terraces are available from as little as €280,000 plus VAT. All of these sites also feature communal swimming pools and prettily landscaped grounds.

Taylor Wimpey España launches new show home amid golf tourism and house price boom

Taylor Wimpey España launches new show home amid golf tourism and house price boom

Spain ,
  • Spain accounts for ¼ of top 100 golf resorts in Continental Europe (Today’s Golfer)
  • Spanish/Portuguese played rounds up nearly 30% over winter season (Tee Times Golf Agency)
  • House prices along Mediterranean coast up 4.5% – more than any other region (Tinsa)

From golf tourism to house prices, Spain’s Mediterranean coast is looking particularly healthy at present. What better time, then, for leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España to launch its newest golf resort show home?

Green Golf at Estepona (Malaga) is ideally positioned to court the rise in interest in Spanish golf resorts. Today’s Golfer Magazine’s Top 100 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe 2018/19 included 25 Spanish destinations, meaning that Spain alone accounts for a quarter of the best courses across Continental Europe.

Meanwhile, Tee Times Golf Agency, which serves both Spain and Portugal, has reported a near-30% uptick in the number of rounds that clients played between the November 2017-February 2018 and November 2018-February 2019 periods.

That’s against a backdrop of tourism numbers in Spain rising by 3.7% in 2018, when almost 90 million people chose Spain for their holidays. Over the winter months (November 2018-March 2019), the Costa del Sol in particular saw tourism thrive, with 3.2 million visitors – the area’s best ever winter season, according to government figures. That number is expected to rise to 13 million travellers by the end of the summer season, which would represent an all-time high for the Costa del Sol.

Golf has always been an important element of Spain’s tourism offering. We have the ideal weather, incredible scenery and some simply outstanding courses. Add to that the charms of the coastline and the excellent cuisine and it’s clear to see why Spain’s golf resorts hold such strong and lasting appeal.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

The Mediterranean coast is also thriving in terms of its housing market. Prices there rose by 4.5% in the year to April 2019 according to the latest data from Tinsa. That’s a greater increase than was seen in any other area of the country.

Within this booming area, Green Golf delivers high-specification homes to families looking to be at the heart of the golfing action. With panoramic views over the course at Estepona Golf and out to sea, the properties enjoy an incredibly picturesque setting. Natural light is maximised through their south/southwest positioning and sophisticated design.

The new Green Golf show home highlights the development’s superb credentials. The large, south-facing terrace is ideal for outdoor dining or general relaxation, while the interior is bright and spacious. A large communal pool and landscaped gardens complete the offering, making this the perfect option for happy holidays with family and friends. Prices start from €280,000 plus VAT.

“The Mediterranean coast has been a popular holiday destination for decades, with golf playing a major role in driving that. We’re delighted to be building on this history of success by presenting contemporary homes for holidaymakers looking to experience Spain’s unique brand of relaxation and enjoyment.”

Balearic house price growth double national average, as Taylor Wimpey España announces Sunset Ibiza launch

Balearic house price growth double national average, as Taylor Wimpey España announces Sunset Ibiza launch

Spain ,
  • New Sunset Ibiza homes mark developer’s first site on island since 2014
  • Balearic and Canary Islands enjoying property price growth of 8% (Tinsa)
  • Balearic tourism up 15.93% in February (IBESTAT)

The Balearic and Canary Islands are leading Spanish property price growth, with prices increasing at more than double the national average, according to the latest data from Tinsa. The IMIE General Index shows an annual rate of increase of 8.0% across the islands, compared to a national price rise of 3.9%.

“Spring heralds the start of the buying season in the Balearics, as it does in many other parts of Spain. On islands such as Mallorca and Ibiza, the property markets will be busy from now until the end of the summer. Foreign buyers play a significant role in these island markets as they vie with locals to find the perfect property in the perfect location.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

On the island of Ibiza, those seeking their ideal home (whether as a second home or a permanent residence), now have a superb new development to consider. Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has just announced the launch of Sunset Ibiza – the company’s first development on the island since 2014.

Offering incredible views over the bay at Cala Gracio and Conillera island, Sunset Ibiza is an exclusive collection of two and three-bedroom apartments, priced from €410,500. Large private terraces and the communal pool and gardens are perfect for enjoying the spectacular sunsets for which the island is so well known. Internally, the light-filled apartments offer spacious, elegant island living, making this frontline development an extremely attractive option for those looking to enjoy the best of the Ibiza lifestyle.

“We are delighted to be building on Ibiza once again, having spent quite some time scouring the island for the perfect site. Sunset Ibiza will be a truly outstanding new frontline development, which maximises the very best elements of life on the island.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

The launch is well timed. Not only are property prices in the Balearics rising faster than anywhere else in Spain, visitor numbers are also up significantly. According to the latest figures from IBESTAT, tourism to the Balearic Islands was up by 15.93% in February 2019, compared with the same month in 2018. Whichever way you look at it, Ibiza is thriving, making now the ideal time for Taylor Wimpey España to announce the launch of its beautifully positioned new homes.

Taylor Wimpey España announces key Mallorca cycle race support

Taylor Wimpey España announces key Mallorca cycle race support

Spain ,
  • Mallorca 312 is one of the island’s best-loved cycling competitions
  • Route will pass within 15 minutes of stunning new Blue Cove development
  • Mallorca flagged as main 2019 holiday destination for European cyclists

The Mallorca 312 is one of the island’s most testing and loved cycling competitions. Taking place on 27 April 2019, the race will cross 312 km of Mallorca’s beautiful landscape, including climbing 16,568 feet over the course of the route. Entrants will set off at 7 am and have until 9 pm to prove their mettle by completing the gruelling circuit.

This year, Taylor Wimpey España has chosen to support the race by hiring a stand at one of the key points along the route, which includes a stop at Arta – just a 15-minute drive from the leading Spanish homebuilder’s new Blue Cove development in Cala Lliteras. Available from €225,000 plus VAT, the two- and three-bedroom homes at Blue Cove offer a privileged first line location, offering spectacular views out over the turquoise bay. Apartments, duplexes and houses offer a range of accommodation types, all of which enjoy spacious outdoor areas, as well as use of the site’s communal pool and private parking spaces.

Having had such an active presence on Mallorca for so many years, we’ve seen the island steadily build up its reputation as a world-class cycling destination. We’re delighted to become a part of that by getting involved in the internationally renowned Mallorca 312 this year.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Mallorca’s stunning scenery and Mediterranean climate, with fresh sea breezes to temper the heat, make it a fabulous place to explore on two wheels. The landscape ranges from open plains to rugged mountains to the idyllic coastline, meaning that cyclists have plenty of variety as they tour the island. The Mallorca 312 route takes in much of the northern half of the island, stretching as far east as Arta and out as far as Andratx to the west.

December to June is the key cycling season on Mallorca and the 2019 season is on track to be a hugely successful one, attracting an estimated 250,000 cyclists according to local tour operators and sporting events organisers. The 25% increase on 2018’s two-wheeled visitors means that Mallorca has emerged as the main holiday destination for European cyclists this year, according to those working in the local industry. Meanwhile, the AETIB reports that turnover from bicycle tourism is expected to hit £300 million over the course of 2019.

Part of Mallorca’s appeal (in addition to the beautiful weather and scenery) is its suitability to cyclists of all levels. The island welcomes complete novices just as warmly as it does professional racers. And, though the peak season runs until June, cyclists still flock to the island during the latter half of the year.

“The number of cyclists holidaying in Mallorca has increased hugely since 2010 and looks set to do so again this year. The island has responded by enhancing its facilities for cyclists, in order to enable them to enjoy Mallorca fully as they explore this fascinating destination.”

Taylor Wimpey España takes the #10yearchallenge

Taylor Wimpey España takes the #10yearchallenge

Spain ,
  • Reservations up by 184% over past decade
  • Kiruna Residencial showcases contemporary building style and interiors
  • Number of nationalities served up from 20 in 2008 to 37 in 2018

The Spanish property market has changed hugely over that past 10 years and so has one of its key operators. Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has been building in Spain for 60 years, so has seen the market fluctuate significantly during its long and proud history. However, the changes over the past decade have been particularly pronounced. Now, the company has dipped into the archives to take part in the #10yearchallenge and show how far it – and the Spanish property market – have come in that time.

Back in 2008, the global financial crisis began to bring the Spanish property market to its knees, as it did property markets around the world. Prices tumbled and many firms ceased building, either temporarily or permanently, over the following years. The recovery was a slow process, but the market we see today is both strong and resilient.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

10 years ago, Taylor Wimpey España (then Taylor Woodrow) was focused on providing high quality holiday homes in key Spanish hotspots, just as it is today. However, the modern company is considerably larger than its younger self. 2008 saw a total of 120 reservations, while 2018 saw 341 – an increase of 184%. At the same time, the company has gone from serving 20 different nationalities to serving 37 – a rise of 85%. The staff team has grown from 64 employees to 86.

The properties themselves have also changed considerably over the past 10 years. The architecture of sites such as Taylor Wimpey España’s Brisas de Alenda has given way to the more contemporary, angular exteriors seen at Kiruna Residencial. Internally, buildings have taken on a different feel too, with a more design-conscious approach resulting in stylish interiors that showcase the very best of contemporary interior design.

“It’s always a proud moment when you look back and see how far you’ve come. Over the past 10 years, we’ve adapted our style to ensure that it remains both relevant and exciting, while still delivering the spacious homes and superb amenities for which Taylor Wimpey España developments are so well known. Taking part in the #10yearchallenge has been a very worthwhile experience – it has highlighted how much the company has grown and how many more clients we are now able to serve from around the world.”

Mallorca property market performs well as Taylor Wimpey España launches 2nd Balearic development of 2019

Mallorca property market performs well as Taylor Wimpey España launches 2nd Balearic development of 2019

Spain ,
  • Cala Vinyes Hills II offers impressive new homes in desirable Mallorca location
  • 15,784 Balearic property transactions in 2018 (Colegio Registradores)
  • Buyers focusing on contemporary homes with superb environmental credentials in prime locations

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has announced its second Mallorca residential property development launch of 2019, just three weeks after revealing details of its Blue Cove site.

The new development – Cala Vinyes Hills II – features 16 exclusive, three-bedroom townhouses in a private setting with a communal pool. Spacious private terraces and gardens provide plentiful access to the Mallorcan sunshine, with prices starting from €619,700 plus VAT.

Mallorca’s property market is ticking over beautifully right now and demand for homes is far outstripping the existing supply. Foreign buyers are having a notable influence on the market, accounting for some 34% of buyers. They are driving up prices by snapping up homes and thus reducing overall availability. It’s a trend that we anticipate will continue over the coming years, making now a good time to buy for those looking to grow their capital as well as enjoy their second home.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

The contemporary townhouses of Cala Vinyes Hills II are located in the prestigious Cala Vinyes area, close to Puerto Portals and Port Adriano, as well as the popular Santa Ponsa, Bendinat, Poniente and Son Vida golf courses. The area’s attractions have proven a strong draw for second home buyers over the past several years, making it a key contributor to the Balearics’ 15,784 real estate transactions that took place during 2018.

The stylish homes of Cala Vinyes Hills II are perfectly attuned to buyers’ desires. Spacious, open plan living areas for cooking, dining and relaxing flow through to well-appointed terraces or gardens, making them ideal for the blended indoor/outdoor lifestyle that is so integral to island living. Interiors have been designed to reflect the cool, natural tones of the local environment, with living spaces exuding a calming feel and bedrooms promoting comfort and relaxation.

Mallorca buyers are focusing on modern properties that boast stylish interiors, superior outdoor spaces and excellent environmental credentials – all in a prime location. That is precisely what we’re delivering at Cala Vinyes Hills II. The sustained level of demand for such homes is supporting Mallorca’s property stock to grow at as rapid a pace as the local government feels is appropriate, while still respecting the natural environment. This is leading to a stable and continuing increase in prices, as buyers queue up to buy their dream Mallorcan homes.”

Taylor Wimpey España gears up for Challenge 2019, following impressive 2018 results

Taylor Wimpey España gears up for Challenge 2019, following impressive 2018 results

Spain ,
  • Taylor Wimpey España completions up 14% and operating profit up 9% in 2018
  • Fundraising for Challenge 2018 saw team raise record total of nearly £13k
  • Challenge 2019 aiming to raise even more money for charity

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has reported impressive results for its 2018 performance, delivering 342 homes over the course of the year, compared with 301 in 2017. The 14% increase in completed homes was complemented by an improved operating profit of £29.2 million for 2018 (2017: £26.8 million). The success of developments such as the Costa del Sol’s La Floresta Sur was key to the company’s robust performance.

However, the Taylor Wimpey team is about more than making Spanish second home buyers’ dreams come true – staff also want to make young people’s dreams come true. They are doing this through active fundraising for their participation in Challenge 2019.

The Challenge event is held every year by Taylor Wimpey in order to raise money for charity. Teams from across the vast organisation test their spirit, strength and teamwork in a series of demanding challenges while raising funds for worthy causes. This year, the teams will be scaling the Brecon Beacons in Wales in order to raise money and awareness for the Youth Adventure Trust, which works with outdoors with vulnerable young people to build their confidence and skills, and DEBRA, which works to improve the quality of life of Spanish people with epidermolysis bullosa, a rare and painful condition where the skin blisters easily.

“The Taylor Wimpey España team is getting into shape ready for Challenge 2019. We’re seeking support for our two chosen charities as we gear up for this year’s event and are looking forward to – hopefully – beating our 2018 fundraising target by quite some way in order to give back to the communities in which we work.” 

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Taylor Wimpey España has a strong track record when it comes to the Challenge events. In 2018, the team raised a record-breaking total of just under £13,000 – 323% of its original fundraising target and the highest amount raised by any of the teams taking part. The effort contributed to a total amount pledged by parent company Taylor Wimpey of £167,575 – the highest sum ever raised by its annual Challenge.

The competitive Spanish team also did well during the 2018 event itself, coming first in the ‘Beast’ hiking competition and third in the ‘Dragon’ hiking and biking competition. This year, the team is fired up to perform even better – both in the Brecon Beacons and in terms of its fundraising efforts.

“Doing so well in the Challenge 2018 was a great feeling – but raising so much money for such good causes was an even better one. That’s why we’re pushing this year to beat our fundraising target once more and make Challenge 2019 our most successful year yet!”
