Luxurious golf courses in Costa Blanca South like the 5-star La Finca Golf and Spa Resort or Vistabella Golf are made for the perfect golfing experience, but what is it like owning a property and living on a golf course if you don’t play golf? At Welcome Estates, we’ve helped hundreds of families and individuals with moving to Costa Blanca South and finding their ideal home in a golf course property. If you’re planning on moving to Spain from the UK, let’s look at what you can expect when you live on a golf course property.
Why do People buy Houses on Golf Courses?
There are countless advantages to buying a house on a golf course and the location of the golf courses in Spain makes the properties even more attractive. Golf courses are often set in areas of phenomenal natural beauty and Costa Blanca South has some of the most attractive locations for golf course properties. The small town of Algorfa is home to La Finca Golf Resort and lies on the banks of the River Segura amidst breathtaking mountain scenery and panoramic views of the coast. A short drive away from La Finca is the sister courses of Villamartin and Las Ramblas. Villamartin is conveniently located near two exciting waterparks and a variety of other water-based activities in Torrevieja while properties in Las Ramblas benefit from spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea and proximity to small shopping areas and diverse eateries. Golf courses in Costa Blanca South are also situated in prestigious areas with good schools making them desirable places for families with young children.
What are the Perks of Living on a Golf Course?
Owning a property on a golf course means you’ll have an array of high-end non-golf-related amenities on your doorstep and in the surrounding areas. With golf being a year-round sport, having a property on a golf course means excellent amenities are always available. Unlike other holiday resorts, golf resorts don’t close down during the winter. So living on a golf course doesn’t feel deserted outside of the summer months. You can also enjoy the feeling of space since the properties are not built side by side like many residential areas in Spain and the UK. Your neighbours won’t be right next door so you can enjoy the feeling of privacy without experiencing isolation.
Activities for Non Golfers
If you’re not an avid golfer, there are still plenty of facilities in the local area to make life in a golf course property enjoyable. Golf resorts like La Finca offer 5-star facilities including restaurants, a beauty spa, a gym and a swimming pool while properties on the Vistabella Golf Course have supermarkets, schools and medical services nearby. The prominent local areas around golf course properties are usually brimming with premium facilities and a range of activities to suit a variety of tastes. In addition to the stunning beaches in the local vicinity, varied outdoor activities are plentiful in Costa Blanca South.
From watersports and wine tasting in Torrevieja to relaxed shopping trips in La Zenia, golf course properties on the Costa Blanca place you in prestigious areas with a superb choice of activities. An interesting selection of scenic mountain bike routes makes cycling around the local areas unforgettable. If you prefer leisurely walks, strolling around the vicinity of your golf property will always be a pleasure but if you’re feeling more adventurous, you won’t be short of options for organised mountain hikes and treks.
Local Festivals and Culture
When we think of living in Spain, the diverse culture, food and festivities instantly come to mind. When you live on a golf course, your social life doesn’t have to be centred on tournaments and golf-related activities you can still experience the many local festivals that fill the social calendar around Costa Blanca South. The local fiestas in areas like Algorfa are an example of the rich culture that is abundant in Spain. The amazing climate along with the annual calendar of festive events around Costa Blanca South make living on a golf course exciting all year round.
Diverse Golfing Community
Living on a golf course property in Costa Blanca means you will be surrounded by many like-minded people who will have chosen to live on a golf course for some of the same reasons listed above. Some will be avid golfers who have moved there to access premium golf courses while others non-golfers will have chosen to live there for the beautiful surroundings and excellent facilities. The property buyers who buy a house on a golf course become a part of the large expat communities in Spain with British expats making up a big portion of the expat community in Costa Blanca South.
Does Living On A Golf Course Increase Property Values?
Golf course properties are in high demand and make amazing investments since they provide great rental revenue. The proximity to exceptional schools and amenities means there will always be a need for properties located on or near golf courses. Their increasing desirability is mostly due to their prime location which increases the property’s value and any improved development in the local area increases the value further.
