Brits lead the charge to the sun as Taylor Wimpey España launches two new developments in April

  • British buyer snaps up first property at Essential in Jávea, Costa Blanca
  • New homes also launched in Port Verd, Mallorca
  • Demand for holidays to UK-friendly destinations increasing (Jet2)

In another sign that the resumption of foreign holidays is edging closer, leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has launched not one but two brand new developments.

With vaccination programmes underway and airlines adding new routes and additional capacity for this summer, many families are feeling confident once more about their longer-term holiday plans. Buying off-plan means that families who can’t travel right now can still enjoy planning for a future of building happy memories together overseas.”

That’s precisely what the first buyer at Essential in Jávea on the Costa Blanca can now do. The British buyer has snapped up the first of the 74 two- and three-bedroom apartments, which come with communal pools for adults and children and prettily landscaped gardens, just a 15-minute walk from the beaches and marina of Jávea.

Priced from €175,000 plus VAT, the apartments at Essential include spacious terraces with huge windows that blend indoor and outdoor living space beautifully. Privat rooftop terraces with hot tubs are available for the penthouse homes, offering a slice of sunshine-packed luxury at a superb price.

With supermarkets, a market, banks, restaurants, cafés, gyms, schools (state and international), a bus station and a post office all within walking distance, the homes are well-suited to year-round living, as well as holiday usage. They are due for completion in March 2023, providing families with plenty of time to look forward to using them once international travel is largely back to normal.

“We’re delighted to be able to provide buyers with a mix of properties to suit their differing needs. For some, that means providing homes that allow them to look a couple of years into the future and plan for anything from family holidays to retirement. For others, that means providing key-ready homes that allow them to enjoy the Spanish sunshine this summer, as soon as they can travel.”

Over in Mallorca, Taylor Wimpey has also launch Port Blau this month. The high-end homes enjoy a superb location in Port Verd, on the island’s east coast, with direct access to the sea. Each home is filled with space and natural light, with ground floor apartments offering private gardens and penthouses coming with their own private sun terrace.

Port Blau also comes with communal gardens and a good size swimming pool. Homes face south-east in order to delivery plentiful sunshine throughout the year. The 10 three-bedroom homes are priced from €425,000 plus VAT.

The launches come as demand for international travel continues to build. A number of airlines have launched additional routes and seats for the summer 2021 season. Jet2, for example, has added over 50,000 additional seats as a “direct response to demand” for holidays to locations that are open to welcoming holidaymakers from the UK, including Spain.

“While we are still some way off from international travel operating as ‘normal’ once more, the industry is nevertheless preparing for a far better summer than last year. We’ve already seen a notable increase in interest from UK holiday home buyers, with leads up 116% YTD in March from British clients, compared with an increase of 73% across all nationalities. Brits are coming back in force.”
