Cádiz

Click to View Properties in this Region

An Overview of the Province and Destinations:


The Costa de la Luz, "Coast of Light", has this name for the characteristic crystal clarity of the blue skies in the region. It is the furthest South reaching resort on the Mediterranean side of the Spanish coastline. The Costa de la Luz is within the province of Seville, Andalucia. The key coastal resorts here are; Huelva, Jerez, Cádiz, and Algeciras. is the oldest continuously-inhabited city in Spain. Located in the Southernmost Coastal location in Spain, where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean and the bordering Region to the South of Portugal. These resorts are very different, from the highly populated destinations in the region such as; the Costa del Sol, Costa Tropical and the Costa de Almeria in the Province of Granada, Andalucia.
The Costa de la Luz area of coastline is famed for white sandy beaches along a relatively unspoilt Atlantic-facing coastline, the area is a popular destination for tourists and for relocation and yet still, it has managed to avoid the built-up resort infrastructure and busy excesses of some of Spain’s other Costas.  Cádiz is Andalucía’s Southernmost province and offers potential home buyers the benefit of a very diverse terrain, which gives them lots of choices, not only of where to buy but also of places to visit and explore the surrounding area.   
The town of Jerez de la Frontera is surrounded by sometimes, breathtaking countryside, with a varying landscape which offers the occasional splattering of  typical hillside Andalucían white villages. The coastline between Tarifa and Sanlucár de Barrameda offers spectacular vistas, and of course not forgetting the local cuisine.
This community, not unlike any other in Spain, is noted for its wonderful tapas bars where they serve traditional dishes influenced by both the rugged mountains and the sea; gazpacho, Red Tuna with rice, Tortilliata de Camarones, which s a 500-year-old recipe for a fritter which consists of prawns, onions, and flour, this and so many more dishes can be readily found in most towns and villages. Located in the west of Andalucía and bordering Portugal, Huelva province also offers a variety of beautiful and delicate natural landscapes, including those of the Sierra Morena mountain range and its Costa de la Luz encompassing shoreline.  
Typical Property prices in this area: Your average two-bed apartments cost in the region of €100,000 and a three+ bed tow house can cost approximately €230,000. Or per 2 meters is 1.98 Euros.The Costa de la Luz attracts the wealthy, professional and middle-class Spaniards for their holidays and many have holiday homes here. Its mixture of historic towns, sedate resorts with wonderful long, wild stretches of surf-slapped, dune-backed sand  all bathed in the extraordinary light that gave the coast its name – makes for an outstanding family destination. The only drawbacks are the chilliness of the water and the unpredictable Levante wind, which can whip up in summer, blowing up the sand and sending everyone in from the beach. But those are minor black marks. And while the beaches, breakers, and hotel pools provide enough entertainment for most children and teenagers, there are plenty of day trip possibilities if you get fed up with sand and sea.

Granada

Click to View Properties in this Region

About this Destination & province:


No one is really sure but it seems that the old French word for the fruit, pomme-grenade, influenced its name in early English as “apple of Grenada”. Although the original name of the city of Granada (derived from Arabic), Gárnata, the Moors named the city after the pomegranate later on. Gárnata became Granada and the city adopted the pomegranate as its official symbol or motif. Where you go in Granada you see pomegranate imagery: in drawings and paintings; on signs, pottery; as statues, fountains and embedded into pavements and roads.
The pomegranate or Punica Granatum is “Granada” in Spanish and the official motif or “heraldic symbol” of the city.
The fruit season for the pomegranate in the Northern Hemisphere is now – between September and February, so at this time of year, the “Granadas” are along every road and trackside both town and country, bursting on the trees and spilling all their juicy red seeds over the ground.

Originally from the Middle East (Iran specifically), the pomegranate has been cultivated all over Asia and the Middle East since ancient times. It found its way to Europe via the spice routes and was introduced into the “New World” of Latin America and California by Spanish settlers in 1769.
One of Andalucia's' most famous destination jewels has to be, Granada! (Its name means Pomegranate.) Granada is situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, with breathtaking scenery and a wonderful winter season for people who like to ski. The Sierra Nevada mountains provide an incredible, theatrical backdrop to this ancient University city. The streets of the city provide important examples of medieval architecture, with well-preserved and fine examples of its Moorish occupation of Spain. The Alhambra palace dominates the skyline of this curious city, a proud, sprawling hilltop fortress complex encompassing royal palaces, from the Nasrid dynasty.
It is said that Granada was one of the first cities to be inhabited by gypsies about 600 years ago and one of the places where they set up homes and a whole infrastructure/community for themselves was in the caves of the Sacromonte. The mixture of Arabic influence combined with the particular lifestyle and temperament of the gypsies created Flamenco. Other towns which lay within the province of Granada are Inland,La Herradura, Salobrena and the resort of the Costa Tropical. Or locally known as the Costa Granada  neighbouring< coastal towns such as  Motril, Almunecar and Nerja, the capital city of Granada and the Sierra Nevada ski resort which was founded in 1964 can be accessed easily from the coastal resorts, within an hour. Imagine being able to ski in the morning and sunbathe in the afternoon!  It is about 70-km from the coast. Being in this position means that Granada receives visitors from all over Spain and other European countries when the piste is full of  plump white snow, which is normally from the end of November through to the 1 st week of May.

Airport/Transport connections:
Granada Airport provides a very valuable gateway to the city of the same name and all its surrounding municipalities.
UK Airlines that fly to and from Granada Airport are; British Airways, from London City Airport. direct flight approx 3 hrs -40 mins, also, Spanish airlines; Vueling & Iberia from Cardiff,Wales with 1 stop, and also direct flights from Liverpool, Birmingham, and Edinburgh.

Weather/Climate:
An important factor here is that you could say this is a destination with arguably the most extreme diversities; the combination of being so far south, with a part of its province stretching down to the Mediterranean with its resort the Costa Tropical being situated between the Costa del Sol and the Costa de Almeria, with sun-drenched beaches and average year-round temperatures of 20 oC and enjoying 320 days of sunshine. 12°C 54°F, 10°C 50°F, Granada's annual weather averages. July is the hottest month in Granada with an average temperature of 24°C (75°F) and the coldest is January at 6°C (43°F) with the most daily sunshine hours.  The other inland provinces of Granada with some great altitudes above sea level in the capital city of Granada, which offers a climate superb for skiing or walking around the city in the sun, taking in its unique atmosphere and marvelling at the sites. It is quite remarkable how the snow lasts with so many sunny days, as this is the furthest South in Europe where you will find some of the highest peaks in Europe. Granada naturally gets quite cold in the winter months with frequent snow, however between the snow fall, there is often glorious blue skies most days.

Relocating or investing in Granada and its surrounding areas:

Jaén

About the Province of Jaén and its Destinations:

Today the Province of Jaén is notable for its number of olive groves and the olive oil produced here and is recognised as the 'Olive Oil Capital of the World'. One of Spain's most important rivers, the Guadalquivir, crosses Jaén, adding to this beautiful landscape and providing the fertile lands around it.
This provincial capital  is home to the largest number of protected sites of interest in Spain, with a great number of wonderful, castles and fortifications, most of which are legacies from the Arab occupation. This province was a heavily populated and important stronghold on the Castilian-Muslim frontier during the Reconquest.
The name is derived from the Arabic word, pronounced: kha-yy-ān which means a "crossroads of caravans". As it was the perfect location for the Moors armies to stop off and rest when moving to different encampments across Spain during their invasion and occupation in the 8th century. In the old quarter of the city, there have been some fabulous discoveries of sculptures dating from the year 500BC.
In more recent decades, until today, Jaén has been one of the least visited provinces in Spain, due to the sometimes impassible  roads and poor communications leading to this province. However, thanks to the new infrastructure work, in only the last decade, there are new motorways, improved local roads that have provided the accessibility for travellers/visitors and settlers from Spain and other countries, who are now able to explore and discover the delights of this beautiful and singular province. 
The northern part of Jaen province has the largest plantations of olive groves in the whole of Spain. Naturally, the production of olive oil is central to the local economy. The olives are picked by hand, and the olive oil produced here (D.O. Sierra de Segura and D.O. Sierra Mágina) which has a distinctive aroma and, according to experts, rank among the best olive oils in the world.

This coastal resort is one of the municipalities in the Autonomous Region of Andalucia in the province of Granada, between Nerja & Motril on the Costa Tropical. This along with most of the destinations along this Coastline enjoys a subtropical climate.
On the face of it Almuñécar has a new and a contemporary tourist resort situated about 80 kilometers to the North of Malaga, which hides many of its historic past, let behind from the Roman strongholds along this coastline. A Phoenician Colony in Almunecar was established in about 800 BC. during a period of about six hundred years, it became an important town for its fish-curing industry which still continues to this day! The town was recognized for its loyalty in its key production for the Roman Empire and from 49 BC this municipality was honored with the title; Firmium Juliun Sexi! Which is the equivalent to a bumper sticker saying.“I Love Almunecar!” None of this fascinating history was discovered for more than 2000 years until the 1950's due to the development of the area. The Castillo de San Miguel provides a spectacular example of this.There are now many preserved Archaeological sites. With relics from the occupancies of the late Bronze Age through the Phoenician period to the arrival of the Romans. 

Montril


                

On the Costa Tropical, Motril is the second largest town in the province of Granada. Its SubTropical climate as with many of the Spanish coastal regions has made Motril a very important location for growing fruit, vegetables which are normally grown in South America and of course has attracted many visitors and settlers from the North of Europe.

More recently the Northern European visitors have enjoyed the delights of this destination. Therefore, the tourism to the area has developed a great accessibility with Airports such as Almeria Airport and Malaga International Airport which is on the Costa del Sol. Motril is a large stylish town situated on the shores of the Mediterranean, with a pretty little marina and a port that has regular ferries is famous for its family friendly,sandy beaches.The original town of Motril is located inland from the Coastal developments and the wonderful beaches; Calahonda,Carchuna, La Chuncha, Torrenueva, Las Azucmas, Playa de Poniente, El Muerto.La Joya & Granada beach.Three of these beaches are nudist.

Most of its narrow streets all lead to the Citadel situated in the heart of this historic center. There are segments of the original defense walls with the remains of a number of towers punctuating its' once strong defence line. Again like many of the destinations in Granada, there are archaeological sites which preserve the remains of the Iberian-Roman city of Basti and the fabulous, Necropolis and its Moorish baths.
