I seem to have been highlighting town and city properties in the past few weeks. Obviously when many people think of Spain, they think of “sol y playa” so to redress the balance, today I am focusing on beach properties. Historically, beach properties have always come at a “healthy” premium but since the crisis I have noticed a leveling of prices. Perhaps this will make some of these properties more affordable. Having checked them carefully, they do certainly all seem to offer value for money
So, to start off in Valencia, we have this superb first line house with pool (photo above). A superb first line beach property in by the Malvarrosa beach. This exclusive property built around 11 years ago overlooks the wide expanses of the Malvarrosa beach from a raised terrace to the front and even has its own small swimming pool in the garden to the rear. The house is one of the few in Valencia that overlooks the beach with no impediment and sits on a row of highly impressive properties. Just metres away from the Promenade of the superb Malvarrosa and Patacona beaches this is an excellent property, well kept and superbly positioned.
