Greenery wins out over beaches as Taylor Wimpey España reveals 2019’s best-selling holiday homes

  • Top developments all focused around greenery and outdoor space
  • Budget also comes into play for Brits buying in Mallorca
  • Nearby beach and golf facilities still important too

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has revealed its bestselling resorts, providing fascinating insights into what Britons buying in different parts of Spain are looking for.

In the Costa Blanca, for example, British buyers are all about homes that offer extensive outdoor space. At Kiruna Residencial, where the three-bedroom townhouses are priced from €178,000 plus VAT, that’s precisely what they get. The homes are available to move into or holiday in before Christmas. Each of the stylish townhouses comes with a 14 m2 terrace, an impressive 50 m2 roof terrace and a pretty, 26 m2 garden. That’s in addition to the development’s landscaped gardens and communal pool.

Kiruna Residencial’s location at Alenda Golf means that buyers have plenty more wide open space around them too. Interestingly, British buyers in the Costa del Sol have also put nature at the top of their wish list; Taylor Wimpey España’s Botanic has proven to be its most popular development in that area.

Botanic beat frontline golf homes and beachfront apartments in order to become Brits’ favourite Costa del Sol resort in 2019, based on Taylor Wimpey España’s reservation figures. The development is built around principles of sustainability, ecology and bioclimatic architecture. Split across different ground levels, it provides exceptional views of the surrounding countryside and golf course, all the way to the sea, some 7 km away.

The natural environment is core to Botanic, which was designed to respect the variety of species and indigenous trees in the area. The properties boast lush vertical gardens, while green corridors link each of the site’s phases and envelop the buildings within nature. The spacious, three-bedroom homes all feature large, south-facing terraces to make the most of the beautiful natural environment and abundant sunshine. Homes are available from €425,000 plus VAT.

It’s interesting to see which sites have been our bestsellers in 2019 and to understand what it is that has so charmed British buyers when it comes to those particular developments. In mainland Spain, getting close to nature and enjoying plenty of outdoor space has been the priority this year, while Brits buying in Mallorca have made the beach a key focus alongside local greenery.”

In Mallorca, it is Canyamel Pins that has emerged as 2019’s most popular site for British buyers. Canyamel Beach is just a short (0.4 km) stroll away, providing some lovely sea views, while Canyamel Golf is almost as easily accessible, at a distance of 0.6 km. Like its bestselling mainland counterparts, Canyamel Pins also delivers plenty of greenery, with mature trees both surrounding the development and dotted about the site itself.

The two- and three-bedroom homes are available from €342,000 plus VAT, which is also revealing. The development is Taylor Wimpey España’s most affordable on Mallorca, indicating that British buyers have been keeping one eye on the purse strings during 2019, seeking out value for money as well as superb second homes.

“Mallorca’s unique property market means that prices there are higher than they are in many parts of mainland Spain. While that doesn’t stop holiday properties in Mallorca from being snapped up, we have certainly seen British buyers focusing on their budgets over the course of 2019.”
