Chris Please, Head of Rightmove Overseas, said: “Just 2.5 hours away by plane, a great climate, upmarket living, picturesque surroundings… Mallorca is perfectly positioned as the ultimate destination for high budget UK buyers looking to purchase their own slice of paradise.”
Please added that Spain remains the most exciting investment for British buyers.
“Over 12 months, we received an average of 2.5 million searches a month for property in Spain, indicating just how in-demand this sunny country is for property-seekers.
“Whether it’s the large expat community, the sunny climate, the food or simply the easy transition into relaxed Spanish culture that has Britons enthralled, Spain’s proximity to the UK, cheap flights and short travel time has it consistently emerging as one of the most popular property destinations abroad.”
