Your dream home in the Costa Del Sol

With its year-round-sun and attractions, the Costa Del Sol is one of the most popular places in the world for expats and tourists alike.

Marbella, Malaga, Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, and Estepona top the list of prime locations to build a luxury home in Spain.

But while these hubs attract a lot of architects and home builders, there are still underdeveloped areas for those looking to carve out a little space and privacy, such as Rincon de la Victoria, Torre del Mar, Velez-Malaga and Nerja.

Why buy land in the Costa Del Sol?

If waking up to the sun rising over the Mediterreanean fits in with your vision of a villa in the sun, then you’ve found the right place to build your home.

Building a house on the coast can often be more affordable in that it’s away from the hustle and bustle, but you really do get the best of both worlds in the Costa Del Sol.

Natural landscapes and elevated plots of land that give you the best views of the sea while still being close to hubs and attractions is yours on the Costa Del Sol.

Hotspot for eco-friendly architects

There’s usually one big reason expats head to the Costa Del Sol to build their home: the Spanish sun.

And while the weather can be a massive boost to your personal wellbeing and lifestyle, architects in the Costa Del Sol who specialise in building eco-friendly homes are always keen to harness the region’s sunshine to power houses through solar panels.

With great local infrastructure, resources, and climate, building a home on the Costa del Sol means you will never have to compromise on luxury while being energy efficient and carbon-neutral.

World-renowned golf courses on the Costa Del Sol

It’s no understatement to say that the Costa Del Sol is a Mecca for golf enthusiasts. In fact, with more than 70 courses to choose from for all levels of golfers, many refer to the coastal area affectionately as the “Costa Del Golf”.

As the former home of the Volvo Masters tournament, Valderrama Golf Club in Sotogrande draws golfers from all over the world. Or there’s Finca Cortesin in Caseres, an enormous 7,500 yard course which is set to host the Solheim Cup in 2023.

Endless beaches on the Costa Del Sol

Mediterreanean beaches are a huge draw for expats coming to the Costa del Sol. There are more than 120 beaches along the coast to suit all tastes: from those who like a romantic evening stroll along the shore with their feet in the water, to those whose lifestyles involve beach parties and big events.

Playa de Burriana (Burriana Beach) in Nerja is one of the more well-known beaches in the area and a great spot for having a drink or lunch by the sea. Or tie in your trip to Malaga’s city centre with a little sunbathing on La Malagueta – you can even get some grilled fresh fish if you’re feeling peckish.

Family fun and high-end fashion

Wherever you choose to make your home on the Costa Del Sol, you won’t be short of things to do with the family. Theme parks like Tivoli World in Benalmádena or Aqualand water park in Torremolinos are great fun for kids (and big kids), not to mention go-karting tracks and safari parks.

If your new lifestyle involves shopping ‘til you drop, Marbella is home to many high-end fashion brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Versace, while the city’s old town is a must for buying local food and products.

International schools in the Costa Del Sol

Sotogrande International School in the province of Cádiz is a day and boarding school that teaches International Baccalaureate (IB) courses to children aged 3 to 18 years old. The school also has a great sports programme.

The British School of Marbella is a good choice for parents who want their children to follow the English National Curriculum. Many of its students have gone onto prestigious universities including Oxford, Cambridge and Princeton.
