Spain has long been known as an attractive destination for buying a house abroad not only on the British property market, but also in Scandinavia, Germany and the USA. The pleasant climate, fabulous beaches and hospitable local people in combination with interesting culture and delicious local dishes attract hundreds of thousands of sun-seeking foreigners to live in the Mediterranean country. While some parts of Spain, such as Costa del Sol for example, already barely absorb the influx of wishing to live there, other parts of the Sunny Mediterranean country still remain far away from the mainstream of foreign settlers.
One of the most exciting and interesting places in Spain to buy a new property undoubtedly is the archipelago of the Canary Islands.
Tenerife and Gran Canaria are definitely the most famous islands, but they are already too famous among European and American tourists and are for this reason too crowded. But what about the neighboring islands?
Nearly 55 km off the eastern coast of Tenerife is located a forgotten paradise called La Gomera.
The island has a unique beauty and is one of the most attractive places to live in Spain. If you decide to buy a house with a swimming pool here you will remain fascinated by the incredibly good prices.
For a price of around € 250 – € 350,000 you can buy a luxury villa with a beautiful garden and a large swimming pool, something that would cost much more in a prestigious neighborhood in any city in the U.S. or in the Mediterranean.
Buying the home of your dreams in La Gomera, you neighbors will be nice and friendly locals or newcomer families from Germany, Britain, the Netherlands and Scandinavia.
Besides the best prices to buy a property, La Gomera offers a number of great options to spend your time. The weather is just perfect 12 months a year. The winter months are much warmer compared to California or the Mediterranean coast.
The temperatures of over 20 – 21°C even in January are comparable to those in Florida. The warm winter weather will allow you to enjoy the great volcanic beaches of La Gomera and to swim into the ocean year round with no problems.
However, La Gomera, unlike Florida, has no problems with strong tropical storms and hurricanes.
If you decide to buy a villa in La Gomera, you will say goodbye to the polluted environment, which every single large city has.
In La Gomera there is no smog, no traffic jams, no noisy crowds of tourists, no nervous people rushing to get to work or waiting for the metro.
Just peace and quiet. And if you get tired of the idyllic way of life, you can always get on the ferry and visit the neighboring island of Tenerife and Playa de Las Americas, which is one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant resorts in Europe.
Where is best place to buy a villa in La Gomera?
You will understand what it means to live in the middle of a paradise tropical garden surrounded by various sorts of tropical trees, shrubs, flowers and palms.
It is enough to open the window and you will be surprised how clean the air can be. If you like nature and enjoy to explore wild forest trails, La Gomera will astound you with its beauty.
Not far from the valleys, just a few minutes drive from the settlements in the municipalities of Valle Hermoso and Valle Gran Rey, extends Garajonay National Park, which is known as the only existing tropical rain forest in Europe (well, of course, similar tropical forests can be found in Tenerife, El Hierro and La Palma, but this one is just incredible).
