Do you dream of a second home in the sun?

Life has changed dramatically recently with a push towards a new working from home culture that is set to outlive the pandemic, so why stare at the same four walls when you could be looking over a pool or under a parasol at the beach or marina!

Mark and Angela DaCosta chose just this when setting up Vistacasas, taking their passion for property and combining it with their love for Spain. They now run a successful, well established real estate agency on the Costa Blanca (Alicante) and Costa Calida (Murcia). Both originating from Bournemouth, they have been in the Spanish property industry for over twenty years. One of their key reasons for choosing the Costa Blanca was the ease of access – with regular flights from Bournemouth airport they can be door to door quickly and cheaply!  

They currently have two prominent offices, one located in the famous Villamartin Plaza, regularly featured on the Channel 4 show ‘A Place in the Sun’. The second is in Playa Flamenca close to the Zenia Boulevard which is Alicante’s largest flagship open air shopping mall with beautiful avenues and squares to sit, eat, drink, people watch, shop or enjoy the free entertainment.

Why choose the Costa Blanca for a second home?
The beautiful blue flag beaches, bays and marinas make this an idyllic setting to call your second home. With the expanse of coastline many of the properties enjoy sea views, which would certainly create a tranquil home office! In your leisure time you can indulge in all manner of water sports, and enjoy safe calm waters for boating, sailing, snorkelling and diving. The area is also renowned for being a golfers paradise with many courses and resorts featuring stunning properties, in fact the Plaza office is right next door to Villamartin golf course.

Why are people from Bournemouth and Poole buying in Spain?
If the copious amounts of sunshine and relaxed pace and laidback lifestyle isn’t enough of a reason, the property prices may surprise you! They are fantastic value and make superb investment opportunities. Vistacasas have established long standing relationships with builders and developers – they can therefore offer you the most competitive prices and exclusive offers!

Plus, with regular flights from Bournemouth to Alicante or Murcia International airports, once you have landed it is a mere 45 minute drive and you are at your holiday destination, or perhaps even closer depending on where your property is! Perfect for weekend getaways or longer.

Why choose Vistacasas?
Vistacasas can show you a comprehensive selection of properties and areas to enable you to make an informed decision that’s right for you, covering the beautiful coastline from La Manga up to Denia. Their large portfolio of both resale and new build properties suit a range of budgets from €50,000 to €1,000,000+.

Meet alan, our local property expert…

Hi, I’m Alan, originally from Southbourne, I was given an opportunity in 2001 to move to Spain and I have never looked back. I always wanted to live in a sunnier climate and experience living in Spain. I live in Punta Prima, about 50 kms south of Alicante city and enjoy a wonderful lifestyle with the amazing all year round climate. One of the sports I do is cycling and there are some beautiful areas around here to appreciate. Others come here for the slower pace of living, 300 plus days of sunshine, swimming, sailing and golfing, to name a few.

This country really is such a fascinating place with dramatic scenery, culture changes from north to south from east to west and of course a nation that sticks to its traditions with national fiestas and gastronomy no other nation can compare. A country easy to travel around with little traffic and unrivalled rail and motorway network systems. Come and discover it all for yourselves.

We are currently seeing high numbers of property sales here, both new and resales. You can purchase a new build with a small deposit and then make stage payments until completion, this suits many buyers as they are still buying at today’s prices but have time to organise their finances. All new builds purchased through Vistacasas will have checks done to see the obligatory documentation from the developer have been permitted and our clients are buying a 100% legal property.

Using an established estate agent like Vistacasas really can make all the difference to your experience, helping to put your mind at ease every step of the way through the purchase process. From listening to your requirements, selecting the right properties for you to view, and then when you have decided on which property you want to buy, guiding you through the legal process through to completion. It doesn’t end there! After you have completed, we are always here to help with any future advice you may need. Put your trust in us – as hundreds of other clients have already done – and experience the ease of purchasing through Vistacasas. 

You can subscribe to our property mailer to stay up-to-date with the latest properties on the market. Contact me, Alan, to ask any questions or to arrange a viewing in person or remotely by video call.
