Spain's Vacation Rentals - A Property Guide
For many tourists visiting Spain, a vacation rental is now the favoured form of holiday accommodation. The high rise hotels dominating the Spanish costas are no longer the undisputed king of the block when it comes to accommodating the 50 million visitors who flock to this much-loved land of sun, sea and sangria each year.
Hoteliers are finding themselves under threat by the burgeoning holiday villa rental industry which, in many parts of the country, is fast becoming the tourist trade’s biggest money spinner.
Why Rent a Villa in Spain
It’s easy to see why so many holidaymakers these days prefer to rent a villa rather than book a hotel room. With the advent of cheap charter flights to Spain and a proliferation of reasonably priced rental villas in recent years, a private vacation home can work out cheaper than a hotel for a group of people travelling together. And a holiday villa offers all the advantages of privacy, freedom and space – benefits not generally associated with most middle market hotels.
There’s a huge range of vacation villas on offer throughout the Spanish mainland and on all the most popular Balearic and Canary Islands. If money’s no object, you can luxuriate in sumptuous cliff top villas with magnificent sea views, private beaches (perhaps a private yacht thrown in for good measure!) and every conceivable creature comfort. For families travelling on a tight budget, there are highly affordable rental villas many of which are located within complexes with communal facilities such as swimming pools, games rooms and shops.
Depending on your own particular preferences (and the size of your bank balance) you can take your pick of romantic beachfront villas, holiday rentals at the heart of Spain’s busiest tourist resorts and tranquil hideaways nestling in the mountains far from the madding crowds.
Many rentals are advertised directly by the owners so there are no agency fees involved. This site offers free advice on many different aspects of renting a villa in Spain, including the pros and cons of dealing directly with an owner rather than using the services of an agent.
We offer hot tips on finding the perfect holiday home along with advice on both buying and selling a Spanish vacation villa. Buying a Spanish property is a popular investment choice for foreigners these days – they can use it as a holiday home, generate an income from letting and be fairly certain of good capital growth within a relatively short period of time. And that’s more than can be said of the stock market.
