Time to receive (in the garden…)

Our porches and outdoor spaces become the perfect setting to enjoy meetings, dinners and unforgettable moments in the company of family and friends.

The good weather is here to stay. The approach of summer puts us in a good mood, and the greater number of daylight hours invites us to make more plans, which translates into a great desire to spend time with friends and family. If it is outdoors and around a good table, so much the better. It is something embedded in the DNA of the Spanish and is also part of the lifestyle that attracts so many nationalities from around the world to reside, or spend a good part of the year here.

The most exclusive Costa del Sol seeks privacy

The golden triangle of the Costa del Sol formed by Marbella, Estepona and Benahavis has a stock of high-end homes, which although it sounds strange, is small for the high and demanding demand that summons. For that reason, many investors or final owners decide to design and build a customized and completely personalized villa. In addition, unlike what the average Spaniard considers a good acquisition on the coast: “the beachfront”, the more exclusive buyer looks for more secluded properties that offer privacy, security, spaciousness and exclusivity.

This house for sale for 9.5 million euros perfectly represents this philosophy, because despite the lightness and play of light of its windows, it safeguards privacy due to its elevation on stilts and its location in a private neighborhood immersed in nature, but with easy access to the beaches.

The house of 571 square meters built has south orientation, and is distributed in five bedrooms and four bathrooms, which are added to diaphanous day areas. It also has 742 square meters of terraces, which together with a guest room and toilet makes this elegant home a paradise to receive and enjoy in company of its panoramic views, cinema room or saltwater pool.

Rediscovering the north

It is no secret that the Cantabrian coast has ceased to be the destination chosen by a minority for their rest and is already the object of desire of many urbanites and buyers eager to spend a summer much greener, cooler, and full of natural parks, sports plans (golf at the head), cultural and gastronomic. The tourist and real estate interest in Cantabria and Asturias has grown in a special way in the last five years, as we explained in detail in this article Boom of real estate investment in the North.

In addition, the interest in these communities is reactivating a large number of villages, since, unlike other hot spots in Spain, such as Madrid (where the demand is focused on very specific areas), here not a single village is despised, with operations taking place in both coastal areas and inland valleys. Despite this, there are places like Comillas that enjoy a special lordship. A good example within this municipality is this spectacular English-style house in Ruiseñada. The construction, of 930 m2, on a plot of 20,000 m2, is distributed in two floors and two buildings with Arabic tile roof and facade with large windows and arches that give beautiful views.

The house has modern facilities and top quality finishes. Its cozy porches are a unique setting to spend long afternoons while enjoying its rich garden: with rhododendrons, holly, camellias and magnolias (brought from Galicia), a vineyard and small orchards.

The north in season

For those who are still not sure whether to buy a property in this area of Spain, the best option is to try. And for that, temporary rentals are still the best option for testing. In our website there is a very important offer of properties for travelers, properties to rent (from two nights to a few months), both for enjoyment and for events and special occasions.

For this summer a wonderful option would be this special cabin on the beach of Doniños: 2 kilometers of blue flag in the municipality of the same name in the province of A Coruña, and also a meeting point highly valued by surfing enthusiasts. The simplicity, at the same time elegant, of its wooden construction and its porch (with outdoor dining area equipped with barbecue and adjoining area with hammocks as a solarium) give a peace difficult to achieve anywhere else.

Comporta: the most natural calm

This calm spirit that causes the absolute integration of housing in nature has one of its star places near our borders, in Comporta, this destination of Setúbal, south of Lisbon, which for more than a decade has become one of the favorite places of citizens of high purchasing power and discreet elegance of half the world.

This property, which almost blends in with the sand due to its subtlety, is located in Brejos, a few minutes’ drive from Comporta, and overlooks various rice fields and pine forests (two of the hallmarks of this region of Portugal). In addition to its discreet architecture, the use of floor-to-ceiling sliding windows allows the landscape to be completely introduced into the interior, which has 189 square meters and four en-suite bedrooms.

The luxury of staying in Madrid…

It is not an easy consolation for those who can not leave, it is something that many of us who know the Spanish capital well have surely been able to enjoy once: Madrid in summer, and especially in August, is another city … The center is a place where you can stroll at a leisurely pace, to frequent gastronomic and cultural spaces that during the year are very busy and above all … it’s time for night. To experience the sunset, the drop in temperatures and the Madrid atmosphere that never fails. It is also time to receive, in pleasant summer dinners that could prepare for example the next owner of this beautiful property of 323 m2 built in one of the best streets of Chamartin.

Having a nice sunny porch, garden and swimming pool of these characteristics within the M30 Madrid is a real treasure that we put at your disposal for 2.49 million euros.

Summer is a matter of attitude, but the location helps, and both these examples and many other seasonal rentals that you can find in this section of the web, will help to make your vacations unforgettable and in these gardens you will want to share them with those people to whom you can not devote so much time the rest of the year.

With increasingly shorter winters and longer and more scorching summers, coastal towns and cities of the Cantabrian Sea, both in Cantabria and Asturias, have been concentrating a growing real estate interest for several years.
The real luxury now is not having a garden, it is having a property within the M30 where, in addition, we have an escape to the outside. Of course, penthouses are still an object of desire, but it is not the only formula to enjoy outdoor spaces.
