Lovely views from San Juan de Capistrano

San Juan de Capistrano in Nerja

The urbanisation “San Juan de Capistrano” is located just out of Nerja on a hill side facing the sea. This combination of tranquillity, lovely views and still close to the town makes a perfect holiday home in Spain.

Most visitors only know Nerja for it’s amazing Balcón de Europa or the busy beach “Burriana Beach”, but San Juan de Capistrano is a hidden gem and worth looking for.

Property prices in Spain at 30 – 50% compared to when it was at it’s highest


The sun is still shining in Spain

Valencia and Murcia hit hard

The property boom in 2002 to 2008 were fuelled mainly by retired north Europeans who bought up new-built second houses in places such as Valencia and Murcia, says political scientist Julio Embid, of think-tank Fundación Alternativas.

Real estate prices have now fallen some 30% to 50% from their highs, leaving Spain’s banks, or cajas with housing stock on their books whose current value is much lower than the original.

Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of houses built during the boom remain unsold, and people wanting to buy may find it difficult to get credit.

Mix of interests and lack of financial education

Embid also points to the cajas’ politically-driven executive appointments as a contributing factor to the crisis. “Many senior bankers were low-profile regional politicians or majors, without any financial experience or bank background,” he said.

Marbella’s mayor to assist business life in San Pedro


The mayor of Marbella

Marbella to assist in San Pedro

San Pedro has been hit hard by the construction work on the new tunnel, due to be completed in late May 2012

Several years of construction work in the town centre of San Pedro has taken it’s toll on local businesses. Many have had to close or at least reduce the amount of people and activities.

San Pedro is no longer just a small cosy pueblo out side of Marbella. Today San Pedro has many residencial develeopments, and they do not appear to be empty.

The tunnel has been under constructions for many years, so it is difficult to imagine how it will be when it opens later this month, according to the mayor of Marbella
