Although traditionally known as a golfer’s paradise, Villamartin is a location in Spain that has so much more to offer.

Accessibility – If your flight lands at either Alicante or Murcia San Javier airport you can be in Villamartin in just 30 -40 minutes by car.


The Area – Villamartin is built around one of the area’s most prestigious golf courses, Campo de Golf Villamartin, it is also close to Las Ramblas, Campoamor and Las Colinas golf courses too.  This is an area that caters for all, with supermarkets, restaurants, bars, doctors, shops, a number of marinas, and more.  La Zenia Boulevard is also close by; this is the biggest shopping centre of the province of Alicante, providing fashion shops, restaurants and entertainment.

There are schools, both international and state, to facilitate the ever increasing community in the location.  The beautiful blue flag beaches of La Zenia and Playa Flamenca are close too.

The Weather – Well, Villamartin has on average 320 days of sunshine a year, and an average temperature of 20 oC.  In the summer, the temperature in the day can climb up to 35oC, but the low humidity means that the heat isn’t unbearable.  The winter months of December, January and February are usually sunny and clear, although a little cool in the evenings until the spring arrives.

The Property –   The properties in Villamartin are available at great value and in built in traditional, Mediterranean style.  There are also a number of new build opportunities as demand for property in this area increases.  This is also a great location for rental gains from a property, with holiday makers and golfers travelling to the area all year round.

We have picked our top 5 properties across Villamartin for you to take a look at, all properties are under £100,000 *calculated at exchange rate of circa 1.30 to £1, any exchange rate fluctuation will change the sterling price* –

The Spanish banks are back in the game and are now actively looking for business, just as in the UK the Spanish market needs to have learnt its lesson to ensure no repeat of the banking actions that contributed to the crisis that saw many suffer in 2007.

The information coming out from the respected institutions suggests Spain is on a road to recovery somewhat akin to the media output in the UK about its recovery, partly confirmed to a large extent by the fact that there are in excess of over 50 new developments underway in Costa Blanca alone!

So mortgages are available (subject to criteria) Your Place in Spain have teamed up with a long standing organisation named Mortgages Directa based in Spain, they can offer a variety of products for clients wishing to buy with a mortgage for their Spanish property.

With prices at the current levels it would seem a mortgage is a more than reasonable option to which any possible rentals could contribute to its repayment and should be a consideration for any buyer.

You have the peace of mind knowing also that the Spanish banks have done the necessary checks about the land and the quality to offer their money to mortgage borrowers.

You can access the mortgage calculator at www.yourplaceinspain.com scroll to the bottom of the page, click on the Md logo, once on the site you can establish a monthly payment entering the amount to borrow (usually 75%) the interest rate (currently 2.5% above Euribor which is 0) and how long you want to have the mortgage. The information should give you an estimated figure that will be close to what the actual and correct figure will be.

As with all financial actions, care needs to be taken to ensure all that is in place to support the application is sufficiently stable, therefore maximising the enjoyment of buying your Costa Blanca apartment or Villa in Murcia.

A full range of frequently asked question are listed on the site and a contact option, of course Your Place in Spain will answer any questions they can for you.

If a Spanish mortgage is something that interests you then please talk to us first. It is always wise to receive some estimated figures before taking your interests to the next level; after all you don’t really want to be rushed about having to take an option after agreeing to buy your Marbella apartment do you?

As with all mortgages your property is at risk if you don’t keep up with payments. Please be advised the figures used in this information whilst aim to be accurate, are for guidance and actual costs & figures would be supplied by the relevant experts.

It is understood there are in excess of 50 new developments under way on the Costa Blanca, buoyed by the rise in the euro/sterling exchange rate the British buyer is in a “win win” scenario. Whilst there is still the ‘glut’ of resale’s and bank stock property available many of these new developments are by comparison small and in great locations with a competitive entry level from circa 98000 euro. (Plus purchase costs)



This activity is clearly a further indication of how the market is recovering aligned with UK recovery. International sales of Spanish property are surging and an increased demand from Spanish buyers possibly suggests the turn in prices certainly in the more desired locations could be soon heading up the way!


Information released by Spain’s National Statistics Institute show a 5.4% year on year rise for May 2014. The month saw 28,124 purchases of Spanish properties completed and this represented an increase on the previous month with a 12.6% more sales than in April.

New contemporary designs combined with new technology brings into play the question “should I buy a resale property or a brand new property?” A resale that may have an attractive guide price and is furnished but not necessarily in the best location, or a brand new property in a location with a view, coastal, mountain or golf, furnished by you for you.


We understand these properties could be mortgaged (subject to status).


Your Place in Spain will be bringing into its portfolio these new developments for buyers consideration to add to the currently over 3000 available properties.
