On the Spanish costas it is considered greener to build up rather than out and more enterprising. Naturally, land close to the beach is largely sought after and apartment complexes bring a higher populace to areas with continuously evolving infrastructures.
Spanish apartment living can be ideal for both holiday purposes and permanent living. With everything on one level, rooms are easily accessible. For single occupancy dwellings, there is a certain security about being in the midst of a building where you know there are others. It’s almost like having a room in a big house but with the benefits of a larger floor space, divided into rooms. Most apartment blocks have lifts, offering the choice of gliding to your floor with ease or using the stairs to build up some stamina.
Balconies of apartments can be a wonderful place to enjoy the winter sun or indeed if on the shaded side of the building, to escape the summer heat. These areas of your home are ideal for outdoor living, with a table and chairs, potted plants and ceramic ornaments adorning the wall, Spanish style. Some buildings offer private solariums for those in the penthouse apartments while others may have a communal rooftop.
A community pool is standard in most but not all apartment blocks. The community of owners pay an annual sum called ‘community fees’ to maintain the pool and any public areas, including the lifts within the complex. These fees also cover the maintenance of any green areas within the apartment complex, which are looked after by a community gardener, thus owners can enjoy pretty garden space, without any maintenance. Many apartment blocks have outdoor parking bays, though some provide underground facilities, which can be convenient for transferring shopping from the car boot to the lift and through the hall door.
In the event that you are considering an apartment to use just as a holiday home, there is also the option of renting it out throughout the year. This is a great way to make an income from your dream home.
