Property Partners Earley in Roscommon has been appointed as a Irish representative for Spanish based company Mar Inmobiliaria. The Roscommon company’s involvement with Mar Inmobiliaria is expected to result in a major boost for both the Spanish and Irish businesses and will see Property Partners Earley marketing new Spanish residential properties in leisure resorts and beach developments in Alicante in south-east Spain. Loretta Dowd from Property Partners Earley visited Alicante and Mallorca recently and is very positive with the outcome. ‘Spain continues to be an extremely popular investment spot for the Irish and we are very pleased to be able to offer this range of premium properties. With the backing of a well-established group such as Mar Inmobiliaria, Irish buyers will have access to a Spanish investment that is reliable.’ Loretta also noted how accessible Alicante is – the flight is only two and a half hours. ‘A development I visited in Costa Blanca is ‘Orihuela Costa Zeniamar’. It’s a superb development located only c.30 minutes from Alicante Airport and within commuting distance of Alicante City centre and only three km to Potorrevieja Town Centre. The development is a mixed development of luxurious two and three bedroom bungalow apartments and duplexes with garden and solarium. ‘Zeniamar is a dream development with wide open green areas, leisure facilities and a beautiful boulevard bordered by palm trees. A residential complex made up of 68 properties, the development will have a swimming pool with areas dedicated to both children and adults and surrounded by lawns and featuring a heated Jacuzzi. Prices at Zeniamar start at €161,000. Mar Inmobiliaria has been offering full property services and assessment on every aspect of the property purchase on the Spanish Mediterranean since it was established in 1999. They offer a wide and constantly expanding range of quality homes, both new and resale, on privileged locations along the Mediterranean coast, Balearic Islands and Mexico. While in Alicante, Loretta visited a number of developments in Costa Blanca, on the south-eastern coast. One great advantage of living in or visiting this area is that everything is so easy to reach – a wide motorway the A7, runs all the way from Alicante to Valencia. Your visit to the Costa Blanca can be as varied as you wish, as beaches on the coast are only half an hour away from the mountains and there are busy shopping malls just a short drive from breathtaking natural marshes or ancient towns with fascinating histories and beautifully preserved old quarters. Magnificent The city of Alicante is a veritable oasis. The streets have an almost Middle Eastern flavour with many species of palm trees and other tropical plants flourishing in the luxuriant garden areas planted around the streets. The city is dominated by the Santa Barbara Castle that has stood for centuries on a mountain to the south side to the city a marvellous lookout point from which the whole city can be viewed. The magnificent sporting marina and its surrounding restaurants, bars and nightspots provide plenty of opportunities for lively nightlife and leisure activities and cater for all budgets, tastes and age groups.
