Morocco property expo in London

A new property expo with a unique focus in Morocco property is going to take place at the Holiday Inn in London Heathrow.

With the recent announcement from Ryan Air regarding the opening of 20 new routes into Morocco, there is only one way the property market in Morocco is going. Morocco is only 3 hours flying time from London with an excellent climate and unspoilt beaches together with spectacular landscapes, it is like Spain 40 years ago" Simon Mawer adds. The opportunites on offer at the moment are excellent, with properties from as little as £45,000 and millions of tourists set to arrive in the next 5 years, it could not be much better.

The exhibtion is on throughout the weekend from Friday the 2nd June until Sunday the 4th June from 10am until 7pm.

Spanish villas with a twist

Spanish villaYes I know, there are already so many Spanish property sites out there that make it so difficult to choose. Having said that there are also so many badly designed, non functional and poorly serviced ones. This makes spanishvillas.uk.com stand out from the crowd.

The real estate services are not so different (resale property is also offered) but the staff are very friendly and efficient and their property portfolio advanced to say the least.

Take for example this three bedroom detached villa in Costa Blanca, 10 minutes walking distance from the beach. Located close to several golf courses and fully furnished including T.V and internet connection and close to all amenities. Looks like a bargain to me.

spanishvillas.uk.com also do property rentals. So if you are still wondering which agent to go to for your Spanish property sales, look no further.


Holiday homes in Austria

If, like Julie Andrews, you prefer to combine mountains with melody and believe that a good day's hill-walking comes second only to a night at the opera, then consider a holiday home in Austria. In Salzburgerland, the mountainous district that surrounds Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart, you can walk, fish, ski or go horseriding, and then return to the heart of the historic cobbled city before the curtain goes up on Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

"There are lots of pluses for a family," says Deborah Ansel, who with her husband, Rob, is about to buy here. The couple from Buntingford, Herts, together with their sons George, 13, and Joe, seven, are considering buying, for £215,000, a large one-bedroom apartment in Zum Baren, a new development an hour and a quarter from Salzburg. "It will sleep four and we will use the pool, the golf course and do lots of walking," says Deborah. "We're not buying it just for the skiing. And of course we can get to know Salzburg."

Since joining the EU in 1995, this small and slightly old-fashioned country of eight million inhabitants has been gradually lifting its property restrictions and it is now possible for foreigners to buy into some of its beautiful countryside and chocolate-box towns. Zum Baren is one of the first luxury resorts aimed at non-residents. Built by the upmarket developer La Perla, it is near the village of Maria Alm in the Hochkonigs Winterreich mountain network. Here, the very lovely hills and trails are untouristy and remarkably quiet compared to more fashionable mountain resorts such as nearby Kitzbuhel and Saalbach.
