  • Properties for sale in Spain

All posts tagged Villamartin

Ruth and Haydn from Manchester purchased their very own place in Spain in April of this year. They found a beautiful Villa in Villamartin, Southern Costa Blanca. At the start of the year they spoke to us about their plans to find a property that they could rent out to holiday makers during the summer months, and then visit themselves for the rest of the time.

As a family of five, it was important to them that the villa had everything that they would need when they were there. Their wish list was a villa, with a pool and garden, plenty of space inside as well as outside, and in a location just a short walk from amenities with everything that they would need for the perfect holiday.

“We always knew that we wanted to buy our own place in Spain eventually, and we also knew exactly what we wanted from a property there, but we just weren’t sure where in Spain it would be. As a young couple we lived in Marbella, and we travel to Murcia every year for our summer holidays with family and friends because we love the traditional towns by the Mar Menor. I also spent every summer on the Costa del Sol as a child as my grandparents lived there. Spain is a special place for us.”

“We have so many happy memories from our times in Spain. Being close to a lovely beach was important to us all.”

With Ruth and Haydn wanting to rent their property to holiday makers, they ideally wanted a location that would tick all the boxes with regards to amenities close by, beaches not too far away, easy access to airports, and plenty to do and see. The Southern Costa Blanca, and Villamartin in particular, was our first suggestion for a location that could be ideal.

“We really liked the Plaza, and knew that it would be good for those people who would be renting our villa too.”

We put together a portfolio of suitable properties and locations, and soon the flights were booked and the couple were off to view properties, and take in the location that they felt could be ideal.

“The first thing I saw was the lemon tree. The lemons were enormous, and it smelt amazing. I have always wanted my own lemon tree.”

“We landed at Alicante airport first thing on the Saturday morning; we were collected from the airport and taken straight to our first property. It took me all of two minutes to fall in love with it! The lemon trees in the front garden, the jasmine that reminded me of my Nanna’s garden in Mijas when I was little, the beautiful pool in the garden. We were just swept off our feet by it! We had a good look around the villa, both inside and out, and we both absolutely loved it.”

“We fell in love! The garden and pool was everything we wanted. Really gorgeous.”

After a tour around the local area, the beaches, and a look at some other properties that we had shortlisted for them to take a look at, they took the afternoon to relax, and discuss all they had seen. Since January they had looked on websites and property portals trying to find a villa that they could see themselves in. It felt like finally, here was the perfect one, waiting for them in Villamartin.

“We sat under the blue sky, eating tapas, and enjoying a glass of wine. We knew we were making the right choice.”

“The weather was just beautiful, and we had left behind a grey and rainy Manchester. We sat by the pool of our hotel in La Zenia with a drink and some lunch. We thought about how perfect the villa was both for ourselves and our children, but also for those that would want to rent it out for their own holidays too. We made the decision to make an offer. It was soon accepted, and all of a sudden it wasn’t just a dream anymore. We had done it. We had our own place in Spain! It is just the best feeling.”

From going on their trip to Villamartin in early March, to getting the keys at the end of April it has been a quick turnaround for Ruth and Haydn, which is exactly what they wanted because guess where they are going for their next holiday in the sun…

Ruth and Haydn used our service from beginning to end, and took our advice by using our highly recommended independent legal team, who ensured their purchasing process was both safe, and efficient. They also used our preferred currency broker to get the best exchange rate possible at that time. If you would like to speak with our team, and use our purchasing process then contact us here. We look forward to working with you, and helping you find your very own place in Spain.

“We can’t wait to start making special memories in our new place in Spain. We love it so much.”
