Matagorda Bay Makes it to the Small Screen!
Home or Away?
Channel 4 shooting has recently gone underway and soon enough, our featured luxury complex Matagorda Bay will be featured on the channel’s popular property show, A Place in the Sun: Home or Away? presented by Jasmine Harman. On the show, potential buyers are shown how they can best invest their finances by being shown the cream of the crop in real estate; both at home in the UK, and a location abroad. This time, Matagorda Bay has been chosen as a featured property in an attempt to sway the buyer/s into investing abroad. This isn’t the first time the show has covered one of the Canary Islands, with previous episodes drawing comparisons to islands such as La Gomera and Tenerife. On this episode which covers Lanzarote, a British couple are shown around this fantastic apartment complex of Matagorda Bay, in an effort to help decide where best to invest, home or away?
As we all know, the credit crunch has hit hard on a global level – some places more than others. And Spain, particularly the Canaries, is one of the places less affected, in comparison to the UK at least. Investing here in the Canaries, particularly Lanzarote, also offers the reassurance of high rentability for those looking to buy to let, thanks to its well-established status as a top holiday destination.
Taking the Leap
On the other hand, for those looking to relocate, the island has lots to offer for any type of buyer, whether family or a retiring couple. Lanzarote boasts year-round sunshine, warm climates and a safe and friendly environment. For such a small island, it is actually quite astounding once you see the choices available here – and not just to make your holiday more entertaining. For future expats planning on making a life here, there are many points that make moving to Lanzarote an easy option. For example, in many areas the language is not a barrier, as many people speak English and it is not a drawback when it comes to finding work or arranging matters. If you have children, there is the choice of them being educated in the Spanish system (which offers the benefit of them becoming bilingual and widening their choices in future years) or indeed selecting from one of the three public schools where they can be taught in English; Colegio Hispano Britanico in Puerto del Carmen, The British School of Lanzarote in Tahiche, and Las Arenas in Costa Teguise.
Make the Most of Now
If you are thinking about making that move, and are interested in one of our properties, please do not hesitate to contact one of our helpful, bilingual members of staff. If you are looking to invest, either long term or buy-to-let, you cannot afford to miss out on this fantastic opportunity. Matagorda Bay is a completely renovated apartment complex located in an upmarket, tranquil location. The highest quality at the lowest price is at your fingertips now.Date Published: 07-02-2009
