Spain’s islands have converted themselves into one of the main tourist and summer holiday destinations in all of Europe. The climate, the good infrastructure and the landscape are only some of the reasons that more and more people are motivated to buy their summer homes here.
Sales of luxury houses in the Balearic Isles is growing. It is certain that the purchase of a luxury home in Majorca, Ibiza or Minorca provides you with so much more that just beaches and activity. These islands have more than 19 golf courses. The Arabella Golf Son Vida is the oldest golf course in Majorca and hence the most prestigious. Another advantage that Majorca offers is Porto Pi, which is the commercial centre of the islands with more than 140 shops and an extensive variety of events and services.
Anyone interested in boats and navigation usually buy luxury houses in Ibiza. Ibiza Town has one of the best marinas in the whole of Spain, the Ibiza Magna. Here you will find all types of boats, especially luxury yachts some of which reach a length of up to seventy metres. This town enjoys excellent transport connections because it is one of the main tourists points on the Continent. A good selection of regular international flights is important for those who have a summer house here and need to travel in between.
The Canary Islands are the other Spanish archipelago that doesn’t only offer marvellous weather to the owners of its luxury houses. One of the best kept secrets of these islands is that it’s gastronomy is one of the most unique in Spain, with plenty of personality.
Many people who opt for these islands will buy their luxury homes in Tenerife.

The style of the food here combines individuality with a strong commitment to local produce.
