Nerja - Property
By Fiona Watson
Located close to the border between Malaga and Granada provinces, Nerja is one of the Costa de Sol's prettiest seaside towns, with lots of great restaurants, picturesque coves and an enviable climate. Nerja is less built-up than other resorts, and is also popular with older residents. Whether you're looking for a holiday property for yourself, an investment, or you're looking to move out to sunny Andalucia either for part of the year or full-time, Nerja is an excellent location.
You can choose either a spacious, well-located apartment near the town's main focal point, Balcon de Europa, a clifftop walkway overlooking the Mediterranean with wonderful views, andeasy access to beaches, or a larger villa on the roads approaching the town, which offers more space and privacy. You'll find a wide variety of properties in Nerja to suit all budgets.
Nerja has 16km of excellent beaches close to the town, accessible from the Balcon de Europa, as well as coves further outside. You'll find a wide range of restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes, some on the Balcon with spectacular sea views. Also near the main square, Plaza de España, many boutiques and eating places can be found. Nerja's caves are a famous visitor attraction, with chambers over 5,000 years old.
Located 65km from Malaga airport,Nerja has excellent transport connections by train with the regional capital, with underground train connections to Malaga international airport - a large number of airlines, including many budget ones, fly here from destinations all over Europe.
Nerja is also a popular location for those looking for somewhere to spend their golden years, with reliable and professional care services for the elderly, as well as excellent hospitals in the surrounding area. So if you're thinking of relocating, Nerja has every stage and aspect of life for the global citizen covered.
As the Spanish real estate market has fluctuated considerably in recent years, many bargains can be found in all types of property in Nerja, as in much of the Costa del Sol. As the town's popularity with expats continues to increase, along with the businesses which support their needs, property in Nerja may well prove to be a sound long-term investment.
