Spain is one of the most popular holiday destinations for Brits and many Europeans, if not the most popular. According to the country’s tourism Ministry, 2014 saw around 28 million foreign tourists visit Spain. Of those 28 million, British people topped the table, with around 6.5 million visiting from January to June in the same year. Brits are still investing in homes in Spain, with house sales to Brits still booming. The first 3 months of 2014 saw the sale of properties in Spain increase by a whopping 55% compared to the same period in 2013. Who can help but love a country that has endless coastlines of beautiful beaches, boasts all year -round sunshine in some regions, as well as its famous football teams.
Proving its popularity, Caravans in the Sun has over 20 mobile home parks in Spain, which are a firm favourite with both families and couples wishing to relocate to warmer climates. Each park has unique facilities to that area and offers fantastic amenities and attractions to keep you occupied during your stay. To add to the superb parks already available in Spain, Caravans in the Sun has two new outstanding parks that they can offer people looking to buy a holiday or retirement home in Spain.
Puerto de Mazarrón, Costa Calida, Spain
The impressive park, Puerto de Mazarrón is located on the beautiful coastline of Costa Calida in Murcia. This delightful community is situated right on the beach and is sheltered by the foothills of Sierra de la Almenera. It is in easy reach of local airports, with Murcia airport is just an hour’s drive away and Alicante airport is also close by. The popular town of Puerto de Mazarrón is just a short distance from the park, with its remarkable five kilometres stretch of coastline of coves and gorgeous Blue Fag beaches, perfect for long evening walks.
This park will keep even the most difficult to entertain occupied, with facilities aplenty. It boasts a swimming pool, spa and warm thermal pool, a bar, a laundrette, a shop and even a children’s play area. If you can’t find anything to do on site, there are also horse riding and cycle hire facilities available in the local area. However, as the park is right by the beach you’ll probably struggle to want to do anything other than relax on the golden sands.
If you decide to venture further afield, the seaside resort of Puerto de Mazarrón has further amenities, such as shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bar and banks, as well as a daily morning indoor market to buy all your fresh produce. The resort also hosts a weekly Sunday morning open air market, which is also a draw for the tourists. The historical city of Cartagena is a 30-minute drive away, which is a well- known port stop for many of the large cruise liners. If you wish to make the most of the Spanish sunshine, the hottest month of the year is usually August, reaching 26 degrees on average. The area boasts 325 sunny days each year, making it the ideal destination for anyone wishing to swap rainy England for sunny Spain. Both new and pre-owed mobile homes are available on the park from as little as £19,995.
This is the latest park that’s on offer in the province of Malaga in the Costa del Sol. Malaga is a very popular area for holiday makers, and this delightful park has a choice of plots which have both mountain and sea views. With its endless sandy beaches, the resort of Fuengirola is only 5-minutes away, which is famous for its 7km walkway lined with palm trees. This park is in easy reach of local airports, with Malaga airport just a short 20-minute drive away.
Open for 12 months of the year, the park offers a wealth of facilities and activities, such as a swimming pool, bar, restaurant, shop, laundrette and play area. For the more adventurous amongst us, there are also nearby opportunities for hiking, cycling and horse riding. The buzzing cosmopolitan town of Fuengirola is within walking distance of the park and offers up an array of things to do and see, including, plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, historical sites, the harbour, as well as the famous Bioparc and Zoo.
Surrounded by pine forests and nestled in the lowlands of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range is the enchanting village of Mijas. Only a 10-minute drive away from Fuengirola this village has retained its original Spanish charm with its narrow winding cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings. This pretty village also offers breath-taking views across the Costa del Sol, Gibraltar and the African Coastline, as its 400 metres above sea level. For the golf lovers out there, there is also a superb golf course just 2km from the park. With a warm and temperate climate, average temperatures usually reach around 18 degrees. July and August are the hottest months of the year, where temperatures soar to around 25 degrees. New and pre-owned homes are available on this park from as little as £22,995.
The decision is yours
You’ll find it hard to decide which of these new parks offers the best facilities and location for your retirement or holiday home. Each has something to offer whoever may choose to set up home in either of these idyllic Spanish regions. Each park has several new and part-owned mobile homes with a great range to choose from. If you’re unsure about either, viewing trips are available, which offer you the chance to view the park, as well as surrounding areas to see how you would fit into Spanish life.
