Discover Castro Urdiales with Engel & Völkers

Castro Urdiales is a seaport town in the north of Spain and has everything necessary for tourists to enjoy, including a spectacular gastronomy and, in short, all that makes a city so great. At Engel & Völkers we believe that it is an ideal place to make an investment so we want to explain some of its strengths.

Without a doubt, the rich monumental heritage of this town is one of its main characteristics. Sites like the church of Santa Maria from the 13th century, the Castle of Santa Ana, and the palaces and homes that shape its centre are full of history and good examples of what this town offers to the visitor.

Gastronomy is another reason why many visitors come to this Cantabrian city every year. Focused especially on seafood, the cuisine here reaches its maximum expression with dishes as simple as anchovies in olive oil or earth snails.

Monuments and gastronomy are enough reasons to understand that this town of Cantabria is a perfect place to make an investment in. But there is still more to this town than meets the eye. Engel & Völkers understands that the presence of the sea is a strong point that should not be overlooked in any way. Its 20 km of coastline with beaches such as El Berron, Oriñón, and Arenillas make this seaport a perfect destination for any time of year. All these factors ensure that your investment here will be a success.

If Cantabria is already one of the most attractive areas of northern Spain, the location of Castro Urdiales makes it a jewel in the real estate sector. To the charms described above we must add the fact that large cities are in the vicinity of this locality. For example, Santander is about 75 km away while Bilbao is only about 35 km away, which is something that makes travelling around this region comfortable and easy.

All this together with the state of the property market in Cantabria create the ideal conditions to invest safely. This community is experiencing acceleration of prices and the demand for property is beginning to increase just like the other parts of Spain.
Thus, Castro Urdiales now offers the opportunity to find properties that are constantly going up in value while maintaining competitive prices. This means anyone looking to invest in this town's property market should not hesitate to make the most of this situation.

Property on offer in Spain

In recent years, the Spanish property market has become a sector particularly valued by international investors, and it's no surprise. Between 2009 and 2014, property prices in Spain underwent notable changes, and as a result properties are currently being sold at very competitive prices. This situation applies to houses both for sale and to let, as well as to more luxurious properties, making Spain a practically unique case in Europe. The best investment possibilities can be found in Spain's high-end properties.

The high-end sector is the most interesting to the international investor. Many people the world over consider property in Spain, especially in the larger cities, to be some of the best patrimonial assets in Europe (a good example would be a luxury attic in Madrid or Barcelona). And as for the exclusively residential market, those who wish to have a second home in Spain, or buy a main house can also benefit from this situation. Logically, all of these benefits also reach the proprietors who wish to sell their houses.

Living and working in Spain

The quality of life enjoyed in Spain is the result of a unique combination of climatic, geographic, and of course, human factors. Living in Spain is an option that is contemplated by more foreigners every day, and buying a house is the first step towards that. Acclimatisation tends to be fast, and those who move in with the objective of developing business ventures can also count on easier administration when buying a house. Spain's high quality property market paves the way forward.

The type of property which one moves into in Spain will obviously depend on the newcomer's aspirations. Those who head to Spain, whether to live or to work, can enjoy the wonderful surroundings, either in an apartment with a view (of the beach, mountains or the city) or in a house right on the coast. For more information, it can be very useful to seek the advice of an estate agent in Spain, who will analyse the most interesting offers based on the prospective buyer's criteria.

Selling your house in Spain

Selling your house is another option for foreigners who live in Spain. Whether you are coming to the end of your stay in Spain or you just want to get rid of one asset in particular, the services of a reliable and trustworthy Spanish estate agent are essential. These professionals will examine the qualities of the villas in Spain that they want to commercialise, reaching the most advantageous sales agreements possible and getting the luxury properties in question on the market. Little wonder: if anything indicates the current context of the market it's that the role of the agent is basically to close a good sales agreement.

How to arrive in and travel through Spain

Alongside the properties that Spain has available, the country also offers areas of great patrimonial and natural interest. It's worth highlighting the excellent connections by land, sea and air to all the European capitals such as London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Brussels, and Geneva, and many other European cities are less than a three-hour journey from the main Spanish airports. Those who travel to Spain have airports at their disposal not only in the main cities but also in the majority of the provinces. Another alternative to get around the country is via the complete train network that, on a smaller scale, consists of commuter trains to the inland regions, creating easy access to almost any town and property in Spain.
