Lucas Fox offers an exceptional range of real estate for sale and rent in the most desirable areas of Spain
Lucas Fox is a specialist Real Estate agency offering exceptional properties for sale and rent and a full range of property services to national and international clients.
Lucas Fox boasts an extensive portfolio of prime real estate in the most sought-after areas of Spain, including Barcelona, the Costa Brava, Ibiza, Madrid, Mallorca, Marbella, the Maresme Coast, Sitges and Valencia. We specialise in the finest properties – from luxury family homes and new developments in exclusive locations, to charming townhouses and beautiful contemporary villas.
We also have an active Country & Sporting Estates division, which was set up as a result of the increasing demand from international clients for large country properties with equestrian and sporting facilities. Its portfolio includes a wide selection of properties ranging from country houses with existing stabling and land, equestrian centres and working farms to polo and wine-growing estates, boutique hotels, castles and palaces, and private or commercial hunting estates.
Since the start of the crisis in 2007 property prices have fallen up to 40% in most areas. During 2014, there was a price readjustment, with prices coming down in line with buyer expectations. This change, combined with a growing economy and falling unemployment, make property investment in Spain extremely attractive to potential buyers.
Spain is a country of just under 50 million people with a strong global influence and a rich culture enjoyed by visitors and residents alike. It has endured a tempestuous past, but since democracy was restored in 1976 it has enjoyed comparative stability.
Mainland Spain is mountainous, but has a world-renowned beautiful coastline and a varied climate that includes dry, warm summers, the extended dry season of the south east and the cooler, wetter oceanic climate of the northern quarter. The Balearic Islands also form part of Spain, with its four main islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera.
Tourism is crucial to the Spanish economy. In 2014, Spain welcomed close to a record 65 million tourists to the country, visiting diverse destinations from the Costa Brava to Asturias and Galicia, from cultural gems like the Alhambra in Andalucía to theme parks such as PortAventura and from Andorra to cosmopolitan cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and San Sebastián.
Festivals are a central part of life in Spain. Like the country itself there is something for all tastes, with religious celebrations, the global musical phenomenon of Sónar and just about everything in between. Cuisine is another cornerstone of Spanish life, with world-class restaurants, a dedication to seafood and an enviable menu of local wine, cava, sangria, sherry and of course cerveza.
