The Value of Marbella V UK or Ireland

Yes, it's hot, hot, hot. Whilst much of the UK and Ireland are seeing high temperatures this week to match those of Spain's sunny south coast, that's where the similarity ends. Holidaying, or living in Spain, is starkly different than living anywhere else, and the value of a home in Marbella brings many rewards.

More for your money

Compared to parts of the UK  - and certainly to all of Ireland - property in Marbella will provide you with a better return on investment. Add to your portfolio with a holiday home, or a permanent base under the Andalucian sun. Enjoy it knowing that your return on investment is building nicely, and you'll have a superb base at the same time.

Lifestyle and health

You just cannot beat the Spanish lifestyle. Instantly de-stress and relax  - and live as the Spanish do. Forget traffic jams, wet high streets and high crime. Start your day with a dip in your own pool. Mornings on the beach or at the glorious food markets, afternoon siestas, late night shopping, and long, lazy family dinners are all to look forward to.

Eating out

Dining out is unbeatable, and always great value for money in Spain. In Marbella, there is a wealth of restaurants to choose from, with food to suit all tastes. Go for a quick tapa or treat yourself to a Michelin starred menu - the choice is yours. Family time is hugely important, and this significance is also highly placed when going out for the evening, where kids are treated as adults, and eat the same food at the same time. Forget kid's menus and processed food, here in Spain it's all about nutrition and the Mediterranean diet.

Sports and leisure

Beach sports, or a round of golf, kayaking or a game of tennis or ever-popular padel - it's all here in Marbella. Some of the best golf courses in the world are right here, and many available properties are frontline golf. Life in this region is always going to be focused on the outdoors, due to the fantastic weather we have most of the year, unlike in the UK or Ireland.

Finally, the weather!

Back to where we started - and we all love to talk about the weather! Málaga has almost three thousand hours of sunshine per year, with July having the highest amount of hours. The UK may be enjoying a mini-heatwave at the moment, but we all know that it will be short-lived! So forget about rushing to the garden centre this weekend for decking and a new barbeque, browse some property in Marbella instead, and make the sunshine last.
