Why Costa Brava?
The Costa Brava, or wild coast, is part of the magnificent Mediterranean coastline of Catalonia, situated in the Northern part of Spain and stretching form the border with France to South of Barcelona. A cultural and historically independent province, Catalonia is also the wealthiest, boasting excellent infrastructure and business facilities, and is well run by local government. It is served by the international airports of Barcelona, Girona and Perpignan and recently a high-speed train to Paris direct from Girona.
The coastal area of Catalonia provides an attractive proposition to lifestyle investors looking for long-term value,
destination and investment opportunity, as the economic up-turn in Spain forges ahead.
The Costa Brava, more particularly, is bound by, and adheres to, planning regulations that prevent future large-scale developments, allowing buyers to purchase properties with the confidence that views and natural parkland surrounds will remain pristine and untouched.
The Costa Brava enjoys year round clement weather. It has magnificent, untouched beaches and inlets, many of which are accessible only by boat. There are beautiful hiking trails, amazing scuba diving sites and, in winter, the ski resorts of the Pyrennes are an easy drive away. The province also has a wide choice of world-class golf courses, including a PGA recognised as being in the top 3 in Europe.
The Costa Brava is earning a reputation as one of Europe’s wine-making regions with the most potential. It has also gained a reputation of superb gastronomy from local and traditional dishes, a superb choice of seafood to the latest cutting edge trends. This is a province with some of the world’s best restaurants. First of all there was Ferran Adrià’s El Bulli in Montjoi (Roses), and now there is the Roca brothers’ El Celler de Can Roca in Girona. These chefs, and many others besides them, have made the Costa Brava and the Girona Pyrenees a land of amazing recipes.
Being Dali, Mirò & Gaudi's country, the Costa Brava has much to offer in the way of culture, the arts, museums, music and theatre and all the towns have a vibrant carnival culture.
In addition to all the above, and most importantly in this day and age, the Costa Brava offers luxury buyers privacy in
safety and security.
