The celebration of the coming of the 3 Kings in Spainflag image

COMING OF THE 3 KINGS IN SPAIN ON THE  NIGHT OF THE 5TH JANUARY. The feast of the epiphany (El Dia de los Reyes) is the main festive holiday in Spain. It is the day that the children receive their presents, not from Santa Claus, but from the 3 Kings also known as the three wise men.  This is also an important festival in South America.  In recent surveys Spanish children  rate the top 'gift giver' as the Three Kings , not Santa Claus, (although in recent times Spanish children receive presents on both Christmas day and The Three Kings' day.) Just as English children write letters to Santa Claus, Spanish children write to Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar, the three wise men,  hoping for gifts to arrive on the eve of the 5th January or the morning of the 6th January. Children also leave food and drink for the wise men and their camels in the same way as children in the U.K. leave food for Father Christmas. In some Spanish households the children leave their shoes outside to be filled with presents. All of the main cities and towns in Spain hold spectacular parades through the streets following the 3 Kings who arrive by camel, horseback or in some coastal areas like Javea and Moraira on the Costa Blanca they arrive by boat,. This usually takes place at 6 p.m. in the evening of the 5th January, watched by crowds of townsfolk and children who then follow the parade to a central point of the town where the town officials and the three wise men (usually played by council officials) )distribute presents, ( previously having been deposited by parents) to the children. It is thought the oldest Three Kings parade in Spain was first held in Alcoy in 1885. The 6th of January is a day of feasting often including a special cake 'Roscon de Reyes' a cake baked in a ring and often containing hidden small gifts inside the dough. This can be a toy, a replica of a baby Jesus, or a dry fava bean. The person finding the toy is crowned king or queen of the celebration, and the person who finds the bean must buy the 'Roscon de Reyes' the following year. if you would like more information about life in Spain please phone or email us, 0034 96 647 3006, or visit our website www.molinovillas.com If you are visiting this area at this time of year why not pop into our offices in Moraira for a chat about property.

Non Resident Tax Declarationflag image

Its that time of year again as the year ends, when all non residents who own property in Spain submit their annual tax declaration. The declaration to the Spanish tax authorities is due by 31 December 2017.   Anyone who lives less than 183 days a year in Spain is classed as being non resident for tax purposes.   These are property taxes, known as IBI (impuestos Sobre Bienes Inmeubles) and calculated income tax or rental tax of a combination of both. IBI is an annual property tax which is based on rateable value or catastral value.   As property owners you will be liable to pay rubbish collection tax to your Town Hall  and in many cases could accrue a debt if these are not being paid.

Spanish Property sales showing growthflag image

Heading toward the end of the year we can look back on how Spain has shown a substantial economic recovery in 2017 with a more buoyant property market driving growth across the country.   Tourism has also grown in spite of the fears of Brexit and a the state of the pound against the euro, and in addition a steady property price increase has become evident. With both property buying and Tourism booming,  buyer activity is rising with Notarial transactions reaching their highest levels since 2010.    Therefore there is a lot of optimism for the future in Spain which bodes well for a successful 2018. Some figures.   Looking at September 2016, transactions of resale properties increased by 9.6%,  sales of new apartments soared to growth of 17.7% year on year according to INE (National Institute of Statistics) Overall the Spanish housing market shows a healthy growth of 11% , down 5 points than that of August 2016 which was 16% up despite the last five consecutive months increases in transactions. The figure of 11% in September represented an additional 38,610 transactions.   Resale transactions increased by 9.6% in September 2017 If you are thinking of buying a property in this area please contact us by phone on 0034 966 492 335 Skype or visit our website at  www.molinovillas.com

Looking to buy a property for holidays ?flag image

Holiday homes come in all shapes and sizes, but in Spain one of the most popular choices remains an apartment or townhouse within a complex that includes communal facilities with easy access to shops, restaurants and beaches. It’s easy to see the appeal and why these types of property are often described as ‘lock-up-and-leave’.   A holiday home within a gated development with fully managed communal areas and 24-hour security requires little upkeep and brings peace of mind for non-resident British owners who visit only occasionally. In addition, being part of a community where most of your fellow homeowners are Brits and other foreign nationals makes it easy to make new friends and tap into the local social scene. Things to bear in mind when buying on a complex include: - There will be monthly community fees to pay. These cover the upkeep of all the communal areas and facilities, which could include gardens and a pool.   Costs are split between all owners and will vary between complexes depending on level of facilities, location and size.  Always check how much community fees are when viewing a property.  Remember, these are separate from council tax. – Get a feel for typical owners.  In every resort there are areas and complexes that attract more year-round residents than holidaymakers.  Choose your complex carefully, according to your situation and how you will use your property.  Buying a holiday home for a lively young family on a complex where most people are retired residents who value tranquillity wouldn’t be ideal.  In a similar vein, complexes that only appeal to summer holidaymakers will be very seasonal and are likely to be quieter outside of high season. The trick is to find a balance! – Pick the location of your unit carefully.  If your property is on the ground floor, located in the middle of the complex and directly overlooking the pool or next to the bar, don’t expect lots of privacy and peace and quiet. Conversely, a top-floor unit facing towards the outer perimeters of a complex, perhaps looking over countryside or a nature reserve, will be peaceful – maybe too quiet for some. You may also opt for a corner unit, penthouse or an apartment that has a solarium. – Check the availability of management firms. Many larger complexes will have an on-site property management firm offering key-holding and rental services to the homeowners. You may choose to use another local firm.  When viewing a property, find out about your options and typical fees for these services, as well as any rules regarding rentals.

El carácter de la Arquitectura en la Costa Blancaflag image

La tosca, el carácter de la arquitectura de la Costa Blanca Dando un paseo por las áreas de Jávea, Dénia y de Moraira es suficiente para entender la importancia que ha tenido, tiene y tendrá la tosca en el paisaje. Hace muchos, muchos años que se utiliza esta piedra para la construcción de todo tipo de viviendas y otras edificaciones de importancia como: religiosas, administrativas, fuentes, Etc. Etc. La piedra tosca que se utiliza en esta zona ha sido extraída en parte del litoral entre el Puerto de Jávea y la Cala Blanca. En los años 70 fue prohibida esta extracción para preservar las dunas sedimentadas que han abastecido de bloques desde hace cientos de años. De hecho, existían oficios dedicados sólo a esta tarea. Los tosqueros; así se les conocía, eran los encargados de tallar y modelar las piezas que después se colocaban en las construcciones. Un trabajo puramente artesanal.

Food and Drink.. What is here for you?flag image

There is Sunshine 320 days of the year, the wonderful blue Mediterranean, a healthier way of living with less stress and I could go on..... Spain is one of the largest exporters of Wine behind France and Italy. Spain also produces Sherry and Brandy, some 61% of vineyards produces white grapes but the majority of wine production concerns Red Wine. Quality wine regions in Spain are called Denominaciones de origen.  For example starting with the best wines, Vino de Pago Wine regions that claim the highest standard which generally are individual estates with international reputation.  At present there are just 11 regions, 8 in Castilla La Mancha and 3 in Navarra Denominacion de Origen Calificada..these wines have a record of continuous quality....at the moment Rioja and Priorat Denominacion de Origen...There are currently 66 wine regions with this status, producing high quality wine. Vino de la Tierra. These have no EU recognition but there are 46 Spanish regions producing them. Vino de la Mesa. These grapes are bulk grown and drawn from a wide variety of regions. Therefore there can be no vintage or area designations on the label apart from Produce of Spain, production is actually falling as visitors and locals prefer to spend a little bit more and enjoy their wine. Although in nearly all the wine regions are confined to specific areas, some of the top producers in more than one autonomous locality ie Cava and Rioja. In contrast Vinos de Pago have a strict location which is very exact, often pinpointing particular plots of land and only allowing wines produced in that area.

Extrait du YourSpainHostel Se rendre sur la Costa Blanca, c’est entrer dans la région de la lumière et de la mer. Cette partie de l’Espagne peut se vanter de jouir d’un microclimat et de plus de 2800 heures d'ensoleillement par an, ce qui explique que beaucoup de citoyens du nord de l’Europe ont choisi cette région comme lieu de résidence secondaire pour fuir les longs hivers froids.

What will I do in Spain for relaxation?flag image

What will I do in Spain for relaxation? This is a question asked by would-be buyers and the short answer is 'whatever you are interested in there is almost always a club or group for it!' General interests Golf - There are a plethora of courses :- 9 hole, 18 hole and 27 hole. There are 3 ways to play:- 1)  Buying a golf share affording cheap round rates and this can be sold on. 2)  Annual fees affording cheap round fees. 3)  Pay by round.  The bar, and restaurant and indeed the greens are open to everyone but some clubs have a minimum handicap rule for players. Contract Bridge.  There are many clubs of varying standards from lessons/beginners to 50%+ only players. Amateur Dramatics :- Again there are many groups. Choirs:- Several to choose from. Painting and pottery.  A few places have classes. For the energetic:- Gymnasiums, Zumba, Pilates, Modern Jive, Ballroom Dancing, Sailing, Skiing, Walking, Tennis, Padel. Courts, classes and clubs all available. Due to our fantastic weather many of the outdoor sports are very popular! Gardening:- There are many clubs. Computer:-  Lessons and clubs. Spanish lessons and conversational groups. Many of these are available either as one to one, or in a small group. Mostly for men (women welcome) Fishing - deep sea and river. Harley Davison motorbike club. Cricket and Football. Several clubs are available as supporters or players. Mostly for women. Flower arranging. Literature appreciation club Ladies dining club Helping charity shops and organisations for animals in general, dogs, cancer support, local orphanages etc. General social activities. In addition there are many social clubs for instance:- U3A - An International group, non profit making and essentially a social networking organisation for sharing skills and interests predominantly for non working people. Lions club, Similar to the U.K Rotary club, Similar to the U.K. English speaking club. These are just a few of the many clubs and charities that are supported by ex pats. As our weather is good all year round eating out, garden parties and BBQ's are enjoyed by all. Other pastimes include :- Cinemas, many of which cater for the English language if not already in English, many live music venues, Karaoke, small theatres offering traditional musical items, plays etc. and larger venues in Alicante, Benidorm and Valencia offering International opera , orchestral, and ballet productions as well as modern international musical gigs. Unique to Spain there are also the delightful Fiestas. During the year every town has a week long, fabulous fiesta 'The Moors and Christians'.  Many of the Spanish residents (and a few foreigners!) support a club or 'Fila' all year culminating in a week of organised events including a magnificent Grand parade in full costume, and featuring many local bands and guest spectaculars like dancing horses, and exotic entrants like dancing elephants taking part. This is to celebrate the driving out of the Moors from Spain and involves re-enactments of battles and speeches. Spain loves fireworks and there are fantastic displays to accompany all fiestas. Many towns and villages also have a week long, more religious fiesta commemorating their patron Saint. This includes Church services, parades, music and dancing to the early hours of the morning. There are so many more interesting leisure activities, too many in fact to mention, but not finding enough to do is an uncommon complaint!!

Observations of a mere Estate agent on Market forcesflag image

It would appear that there are 4 main categories that buyers fall into:- 1)  Spanish clients - looking to buy a home for themselves and family.  Just as most U.K. based people,  their priorities are :- being close to the best schools, being as close as possible to the work place, being close to extended family.  This group often preferring apartments very close to amenities regardless of noise, pylons, lack of garden and swimming pools. 2)  Overseas clients who are frequent visitors to Spain, particularly this part of Spain, always thinking 'one day' when we retire or Uncle Fred leaves us a stash of cash, we will buy a property in Spain, either as a permanent residence or as an often used holiday home.  This group usually have a well defined idea of which town they prefer and which area of the town and are often reluctant to consider alternatives. 3) Clients who visit for the first time, and fall in love with the charm and beauty of the area, and decide to buy.  Mostly they will, at least in the beginning, use it as a holiday home and will prefer a property with low maintenance, walking distance to the beach and amenities and will often offset the mortgage and or other expenses by renting the property out for several weeks of the year. They are more open about area and town and will view suitable properties in a variety of places. 4) Investment clients: either looking to buy a property with good rental return, or they are looking for a 'doer upper' thinking to put in a lot of refurbishment work and make a good profit at the end - rather like the 'Homes under the hammer' programme, but in lovely sunny Spain!  This last category are very difficult to satisfy, as any such property is snapped up by the locals before it comes to the market place, Auctions are very rare.  Price being the most important consideration here . Part of the estate Agent's job is to recognise the needs of the client as quickly as possible . Since the advent of the 'internet' the market place has changed and the client will often only allow 1 or 2 hours for viewing with any one Agent, thus not really making it easy for an agent to use his/her knowledge to find that dream home. Some times it is difficult for the sellers to understand why all prospective purchasers are not being offered their property.  There is little point in showing them the totally the wrong house, antagonising both buyer and seller.  A professional, experienced Agency will qualify and then provide the right client for the right property in the shortest time.

I fell for the rustic style property of a finca!flag image

There is more to Spain than rows of beach pads in busy coastal resorts. Meet one British owner who headed into the countryside and opted for a rustic bolthole with panoramic Mountain and valley views. Noisy crowds, nosy neighbours and traffic jams are not things Mr J has ever had to worry about at his finca in the Benissa countryside. Mr J, who lives in London, has owned his Spanish property in Canor near Benissa since 2005. He bought it with his business partner as a holiday home and rental investment. 15 minutes drive inland from the blue flag sandy beaches of the Costa Blanca, Denia, Javea, Moraira & Calpe the way of life at this location couldn’t be more different to the busy tourist resorts that typify much of Spain’s coastline.  For nature lovers, walkers and mountain bikers, and anyone looking for a complete switch-off in unspoilt rural surroundings, it’s heaven. “The property is a modern property designed to look like a traditional Finca style property with 10,000m2 of land, including, 1,000m2 that is fenced around the property.  Mr J said, “It’s real Spain, where the locals hardly speak English. Benissa is just five minutes’ drive and has all the amenities you need, including large supermarkets, banks, restaurants, schools and a medical centre. We used to come almost every two months when the property wasn’t rented, when we would book cheap flights to Alicante Airport, 60 minutes away, or Valencia Airport, One-and-a-half  hours away. We’ve had some great parties there with friends and family and never had to worry about making too much noise!” Mr J´s terrace – ideal for peaceful sunsets! Mr J´s property is also near Denia, Javea and Moraira, which offers excellent water-based activities, such as kayaking, paddle, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, water skiing or jet ski excursions.  Scenic Medieval towns such as Javea old town and Denia Castle are perfect places to visit or enjoy a lazy lunch. Mr J has been very successful in letting the stone finca to holidaymakers and had no trouble finding guests between February and October. “We used to get repeat business,” he said. “We had a lot of European people, who liked the natural, private setting, and it also attracted naturists, walkers and bird-watchers. One of the reasons for purchasing in this area on the Costa Blanca North was the warm winter sun". Mr J is now looking to sell the finca. It is on the market for just 345,000€. The property is structurally sound with insulated walls, the property IS NOT on the mains grid for electricity, however there is a diesel generator. Mr J has looked at installing Solar panels, and has a local quote. Gas central heating and water is delivered by tanker and stored in the large water depositio under the pool terrace. With a bit of attention you could almost be self-sufficient there. It would make a great project for someone who was looking to create their own idyllic bolt-hole, either as a permanent, holiday home, or rental investment.

Holiday survival kit – 5 items every family can't do withoutflag image

To get the most out of your holiday home you will need all the right gear. Spanish homeowner’s five must-haves that will help make your family holidays a success. Inflatable’s!Killer whale, dinghy or plain old Lillo, expect inflatable’s to become a part of your life when you own a holiday home with access to water. Even more so if you have kids. Resistance is futile, given they are displayed outside virtually every shop along your typical beachfront, triggering pleas from desperate little ones.  It is quite normal to ignore the warnings about overloading it, so typically they need replacing on an annual basis – don´t bother trying to patch up holes, it never works. Get yourself a decent foot-pump, or risk passing out after half an hour of wheezing down a rubber hole that barely opens. SunshadesKids can be especially grouchy after a long day at the beach.  Energy levels zapped by the sun, sticky from the residue of Calippos and with sand grating against wet cosies and in just about every crevice of their body, if bare thighs hit car seats charged with a day’s worth of Mediterranean sunshine, the whole area will know about it.  Likewise the steering wheel will be too hot to touch. The solution is prevention.  First, point to note, the earlier you arrive by car anywhere in a hot country, be it the beach, supermarket or A&E, the higher your chances of landing yourself a parking space in the shade. If you do need to leave your vehicle in the sun for some time, get a screen for not only the windscreen but also all the other windows.  The kids will thank you for it. Remember, too much sun equals grumpiness and, in the worst cases, sunburn and illness.  Sunshades should be omnipresent as you go about your life in the sunshine. The beach bagThe phrase ‘nipping to the beach’, like you did as a carefree, golden-tanned teenager with nothing more than a towel under your arm, becomes defunct when you grow up and have little ones. Organisation is key to making the day a success and pivotal to this is the carefully prepared beach bag. The bag itself needs to be super big with easy access to the inside, ideally made of cloth or another hardy material that doesn’t perish when wet, have a zip able inside pocket for money, phone and keys.  Contents, as a bare minimum, will include drinks, snacks, sun-cream, towels, Frisbee, bat and ball, mask and snorkel, and bucket and spade (which often ends up being carried).  Everything else – the sunshade, folding chairs, mats and a ball can be carried.  Don’t be surprised to gain the odd spade or bucket along the way. Insect repellent(s)Comparing mosquito –  or mozzie – bites is a popular pastime of Brits abroad, often done at breakfast after a dawn raid by the whining critters.  We throw around different theories about why one person is ‘tastier’ than another is, or offer convenient ways to keep them away: wash less and booze more – they are attracted to sweet scented soap but deterred by alcohol in the blood… Repellent seems to work for some people but not all, otherwise the plug-in devices are effective.  Actually, one of the simplest solutions to avoid being bitten is to keep doors and windows shut as much as possible.  Ants are often a problem in hot climates too.  Not leaving food out and sweeping up after every meal will help, otherwise a good dose of Raid will keep them at bay. Candles and cardsWarm evenings sat out playing rummy or Uno by candlelight have become a highlight of our holidays.  The children’s normal bedtimes go out the window, as they hone their card-playing skills and you pathetically double bluffing about trying your hardest to win as you sneak glances at their cards.  Pick candles that come in a variety of coloured glass jars and scented with citronella to make things that extra bit more exotic!

Diving on the Costa Blanca Northflag image

According to www.activacostablanca.com The Costa Blanca has many more good diving spots than you might assume, either you are an experienced diver, or want to learn it, here is some information for you.  There are some best dive sites on the Costa Blanca that is called the coastal zone of the Mediterranean Sea, located in the southeast of Spain, in the province of Alicante. And of these 244 kilometers of coastline, what are the best beaches for diving,  Let’s name the most important. Playa de la Granadella: Located in the town of Javea, this beach is considered one of the best in Spain. It is a dream space where perfectly sea and mountains, crystal clear waters and greenery of Mediterranean pine trees are combined. Thanks to these turquoise waters, dive experience within these waters becomes something unique. Las Rotas: In the town of Denia, following the road from Denia to Javea, we find Las Rotas, a set of small spots divided into three zones (A, B and C) ending at Cape San Antonio coves, whose seabed is listed as a marine reserve area and therefore is protected. El Penon de Ifach: In Calpe, we have another one of those areas where diving becomes a great experience. As diving is very deep here, it will be necessary to have a certain level of diving experience when diving. Cala Moraig: Finally we emphasize the Cala Moraig in Cumbres del Sol urbanization in Benitachell, as another magnificent crystal clear creek where we can enjoy diving. In addition, this cove is renown for having a famous undersea route, a route of medium-high difficulty and about 45 minutes long. This is a very desirable area to carry out the practice of cave diving. For more information about these areas if you are considering a lifestyle change to the Costa Blanca North, please contact Molino Villas  www.molinovillas.com or ring on 0034 966 492 335.

Getting from Alicante Airport to Moraira or Javeaflag image

Unless you have friends to collect you, the easiest way to go from the Airport to this area is by hiring a car because it's likely that you will need a car whilst you are here.  There are many car hire companies and if you are a regular,  there are good deals to be had. Another option is to purchase a run around and leave it at the Airport at one of the well known car hire depots, who look after your car and with prior notice,  prepare the car ready for your arrival. They allow 10 free collections per year and this means, there is no additional cost and no waiting at the Car hire desks. Another option now is to catch the Beniconnect Bus, a Benidorm based and family run company which is fully licensed and insured.  It provides a service to connect local towns ie Benissa, Calpe, Moraira, Benitachell and Javea and now also the inland villages of Jalon and Orba. The average cost is from 18 to 28 euros depending on where you are boarding. If you have a larger family it may not be so cost effective and you may need to enquire for a price on a vehicle with 10 to 12 seats. You can contact them by telephone on 0034 965 850 790 or email at reservas@beniconnect.com If you feel that you would like to purchase a property in any of these areas, please contact us via our email address on info@molinovillas.com or visit our website on www.molinovillas.com 0034 966 492 335.

Are you looking to Sell your property ?flag image

Are You Looking To Sell Your Property? If so, The Staff At Molino Villas,  based in Moraira, Would like to help you. Now you have made that decision to sell, take advantage of our offer to prepare and pay for your EPC Certificate, (if we sell your property). Kerb Appeal And Consideratios When Selling Your Property. The time is right for you to sell.  For most people the first thing that comes to mind is price, and probably visiting an Agent. The Agent's job is to offer sound advice on pricing, paperwork essential to the sale, and importantly advising on preparing the property in its best light for marketing it successfully. Kerb appeal means the first impression that 'would be' purchasers have of the house.  It is the most important thing, because you only get one chance at this, and it sets the mood for viewing in depth. A tidy garden, clean driveway/entrance, good clean paintwork on gates, walls, and front door are a must. A clean swimming pool, tidily arranged garden furniture and no washing all enhance the general appearance. Entering the Property. A fresh smell, no cooking odours from last night's curry or today's fish! Rover and Felix maybe your best friends but doggy smells, excited greetings, and incessant barking, the site of Cat Litter and abandoned food are definite turn offs! Space is always at the top of buyers' lists. If possible, without turning your home into a show house, remove some of your personal knick knacks, re arrange furniture, hide the washing, cooking ingredients and utensils etc in the kitchen, and other items that give a cluttered (some call it homely!) impression.  Loud noise from televisions etc. have a jarring effect on visitors on serious business and make it difficult for the Agent to make themselves heard! The Agent is a professional sales person, who should have interviewed his client to find out their most important criteria, and would then point out the salient points of your property,  so it is usually best to let him/her do their job in leading the viewing .  Too many people following the buyers around and making them uncomfortable and can make rooms look smaller.  In fact it is better for the seller to go out for a coffee, whilst the Agent is showing the prospective purchaser around your home. Too much Information: One of the most common questions the sellers are asked is 'why are you selling'.  They do not need to know it is because you have fallen out with the obnoxious neighbours, hate Spain, or you have found you miss your family more than you anticipated.  This will make the 'would be' buyers consider their own plans for moving. Remember you are paying for professional advice from both your agent and legal representative so it makes sense to listen to it. Our staff at Molino Villas like to work as a team and we encourage our sellers to take our advice and work as a team with us, it is a win win situation for all. www.molinovillas.com 0034 966 492 335

The celebration of the coming of the 3 Kings in Spain

COMING OF THE 3 KINGS IN SPAIN ON THE  NIGHT OF THE 5TH JANUARY. The feast of the epiphany (El Dia de los Reyes) is the main festive holiday in Spain. It is the day that the children receive their presents, not from Santa Claus, but from the 3 Kings also known as the three wise men.  This is also an important festival in South America.  In recent surveys Spanish children  rate the top 'gift giver' as the Three Kings , not Santa Claus, (although in recent times Spanish children receive presents on both Christmas day and The Three Kings' day.) Just as English children write letters to Santa Claus, Spanish children write to Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar, the three wise men,  hoping for gifts to arrive on the eve of the 5th January or the morning of the 6th January. Children also leave food and drink for the wise men and their camels in the same way as children in the U.K. leave food for Father Christmas. In some Spanish households the children leave their shoes outside to be filled with presents. All of the main cities and towns in Spain hold spectacular parades through the streets following the 3 Kings who arrive by camel, horseback or in some coastal areas like Javea and Moraira on the Costa Blanca they arrive by boat,. This usually takes place at 6 p.m. in the evening of the 5th January, watched by crowds of townsfolk and children who then follow the parade to a central point of the town where the town officials and the three wise men (usually played by council officials) )distribute presents, ( previously having been deposited by parents) to the children. It is thought the oldest Three Kings parade in Spain was first held in Alcoy in 1885. The 6th of January is a day of feasting often including a special cake 'Roscon de Reyes' a cake baked in a ring and often containing hidden small gifts inside the dough. This can be a toy, a replica of a baby Jesus, or a dry fava bean. The person finding the toy is crowned king or queen of the celebration, and the person who finds the bean must buy the 'Roscon de Reyes' the following year. if you would like more information about life in Spain please phone or email us, 0034 96 647 3006, or visit our website www.molinovillas.com If you are visiting this area at this time of year why not pop into our offices in Moraira for a chat about property.

Non Resident Tax Declaration

Its that time of year again as the year ends, when all non residents who own property in Spain submit their annual tax declaration. The declaration to the Spanish tax authorities is due by 31 December 2017.   Anyone who lives less than 183 days a year in Spain is classed as being non resident for tax purposes.   These are property taxes, known as IBI (impuestos Sobre Bienes Inmeubles) and calculated income tax or rental tax of a combination of both. IBI is an annual property tax which is based on rateable value or catastral value.   As property owners you will be liable to pay rubbish collection tax to your Town Hall  and in many cases could accrue a debt if these are not being paid. Speak with your Gestor, who will be able to help you or alternatively you can contact us on 0034 966 492 335 or visit our website www.molinovillas.com

Spanish Property sales showing growth

Heading toward the end of the year we can look back on how Spain has shown a substantial economic recovery in 2017 with a more buoyant property market driving growth across the country.   Tourism has also grown in spite of the fears of Brexit and a the state of the pound against the euro, and in addition a steady property price increase has become evident. With both property buying and Tourism booming,  buyer activity is rising with Notarial transactions reaching their highest levels since 2010.    Therefore there is a lot of optimism for the future in Spain which bodes well for a successful 2018. Some figures.   Looking at September 2016, transactions of resale properties increased by 9.6%,  sales of new apartments soared to growth of 17.7% year on year according to INE (National Institute of Statistics) Overall the Spanish housing market shows a healthy growth of 11% , down 5 points than that of August 2016 which was 16% up despite the last five consecutive months increases in transactions. The figure of 11% in September represented an additional 38,610 transactions.   Resale transactions increased by 9.6% in September 2017 If you are thinking of buying a property in this area please contact us by phone on 0034 966 492 335 Skype or visit our website at  www.molinovillas.com

Looking to buy a property for holidays ?

Holiday homes come in all shapes and sizes, but in Spain one of the most popular choices remains an apartment or townhouse within a complex that includes communal facilities with easy access to shops, restaurants and beaches. It’s easy to see the appeal and why these types of property are often described as ‘lock-up-and-leave’.   A holiday home within a gated development with fully managed communal areas and 24-hour security requires little upkeep and brings peace of mind for non-resident British owners who visit only occasionally. In addition, being part of a community where most of your fellow homeowners are Brits and other foreign nationals makes it easy to make new friends and tap into the local social scene. Things to bear in mind when buying on a complex include: - There will be monthly community fees to pay. These cover the upkeep of all the communal areas and facilities, which could include gardens and a pool.   Costs are split between all owners and will vary between complexes depending on level of facilities, location and size.  Always check how much community fees are when viewing a property.  Remember, these are separate from council tax. – Get a feel for typical owners.  In every resort there are areas and complexes that attract more year-round residents than holidaymakers.  Choose your complex carefully, according to your situation and how you will use your property.  Buying a holiday home for a lively young family on a complex where most people are retired residents who value tranquillity wouldn’t be ideal.  In a similar vein, complexes that only appeal to summer holidaymakers will be very seasonal and are likely to be quieter outside of high season. The trick is to find a balance! – Pick the location of your unit carefully.  If your property is on the ground floor, located in the middle of the complex and directly overlooking the pool or next to the bar, don’t expect lots of privacy and peace and quiet. Conversely, a top-floor unit facing towards the outer perimeters of a complex, perhaps looking over countryside or a nature reserve, will be peaceful – maybe too quiet for some. You may also opt for a corner unit, penthouse or an apartment that has a solarium. – Check the availability of management firms. Many larger complexes will have an on-site property management firm offering key-holding and rental services to the homeowners. You may choose to use another local firm.  When viewing a property, find out about your options and typical fees for these services, as well as any rules regarding rentals. If you are looking to holiday or buy in this area visit our website at www.molinovillas.com or contact us on 0034 966 492 335.

El carácter de la Arquitectura en la Costa Blanca

La tosca, el carácter de la arquitectura de la Costa Blanca Dando un paseo por las áreas de Jávea, Dénia y de Moraira es suficiente para entender la importancia que ha tenido, tiene y tendrá la tosca en el paisaje. Hace muchos, muchos años que se utiliza esta piedra para la construcción de todo tipo de viviendas y otras edificaciones de importancia como: religiosas, administrativas, fuentes, Etc. Etc. La piedra tosca que se utiliza en esta zona ha sido extraída en parte del litoral entre el Puerto de Jávea y la Cala Blanca. En los años 70 fue prohibida esta extracción para preservar las dunas sedimentadas que han abastecido de bloques desde hace cientos de años. De hecho, existían oficios dedicados sólo a esta tarea. Los tosqueros; así se les conocía, eran los encargados de tallar y modelar las piezas que después se colocaban en las construcciones. Un trabajo puramente artesanal.

Food and Drink.. What is here for you?

There is Sunshine 320 days of the year, the wonderful blue Mediterranean, a healthier way of living with less stress and I could go on..... Spain is one of the largest exporters of Wine behind France and Italy. Spain also produces Sherry and Brandy, some 61% of vineyards produces white grapes but the majority of wine production concerns Red Wine. Quality wine regions in Spain are called Denominaciones de origen.  For example starting with the best wines, Vino de Pago Wine regions that claim the highest standard which generally are individual estates with international reputation.  At present there are just 11 regions, 8 in Castilla La Mancha and 3 in Navarra Denominacion de Origen Calificada..these wines have a record of continuous quality....at the moment Rioja and Priorat Denominacion de Origen...There are currently 66 wine regions with this status, producing high quality wine. Vino de la Tierra. These have no EU recognition but there are 46 Spanish regions producing them. Vino de la Mesa. These grapes are bulk grown and drawn from a wide variety of regions. Therefore there can be no vintage or area designations on the label apart from Produce of Spain, production is actually falling as visitors and locals prefer to spend a little bit more and enjoy their wine. Although in nearly all the wine regions are confined to specific areas, some of the top producers in more than one autonomous locality ie Cava and Rioja. In contrast Vinos de Pago have a strict location which is very exact, often pinpointing particular plots of land and only allowing wines produced in that area.

Painting and pottery.  A few places have classes. For the energetic:- Gymnasiums, Zumba, Pilates, Modern Jive, Ballroom Dancing, Sailing, Skiing, Walking, Tennis, Padel.

This is to celebrate the driving out of the Moors from Spain and involves re-enactments of battles and speeches. Spain loves fireworks and there are fantastic displays to accompany all fiestas. Many towns and villages also have a week long, more religious fiesta commemorating their patron Saint. This includes Church services, parades, music and dancing to the early hours of the morning.

Observations of a mere Estate agent on Market forces

It would appear that there are 4 main categories that buyers fall into:- 1)  Spanish clients - looking to buy a home for themselves and family.  Just as most U.K. based people,  their priorities are :- being close to the best schools, being as close as possible to the work place, being close to extended family.  This group often preferring apartments very close to amenities regardless of noise, pylons, lack of garden and swimming pools. 2)  Overseas clients who are frequent visitors to Spain, particularly this part of Spain, always thinking 'one day' when we retire or Uncle Fred leaves us a stash of cash, we will buy a property in Spain, either as a permanent residence or as an often used holiday home.  This group usually have a well defined idea of which town they prefer and which area of the town and are often reluctant to consider alternatives. 3) Clients who visit for the first time, and fall in love with the charm and beauty of the area, and decide to buy.  Mostly they will, at least in the beginning, use it as a holiday home and will prefer a property with low maintenance, walking distance to the beach and amenities and will often offset the mortgage and or other expenses by renting the property out for several weeks of the year. They are more open about area and town and will view suitable properties in a variety of places. 4) Investment clients: either looking to buy a property with good rental return, or they are looking for a 'doer upper' thinking to put in a lot of refurbishment work and make a good profit at the end - rather like the 'Homes under the hammer' programme, but in lovely sunny Spain!  This last category are very difficult to satisfy, as any such property is snapped up by the locals before it comes to the market place, Auctions are very rare.  Price being the most important consideration here . Part of the estate Agent's job is to recognise the needs of the client as quickly as possible . Since the advent of the 'internet' the market place has changed and the client will often only allow 1 or 2 hours for viewing with any one Agent, thus not really making it easy for an agent to use his/her knowledge to find that dream home. Some times it is difficult for the sellers to understand why all prospective purchasers are not being offered their property.  There is little point in showing them the totally the wrong house, antagonising both buyer and seller.  A professional, experienced Agency will qualify and then provide the right client for the right property in the shortest time.

I fell for the rustic style property of a finca!

There is more to Spain than rows of beach pads in busy coastal resorts. Meet one British owner who headed into the countryside and opted for a rustic bolthole with panoramic Mountain and valley views. Noisy crowds, nosy neighbours and traffic jams are not things Mr J has ever had to worry about at his finca in the Benissa countryside. Mr J, who lives in London, has owned his Spanish property in Canor near Benissa since 2005. He bought it with his business partner as a holiday home and rental investment. 15 minutes drive inland from the blue flag sandy beaches of the Costa Blanca, Denia, Javea, Moraira & Calpe the way of life at this location couldn’t be more different to the busy tourist resorts that typify much of Spain’s coastline.  For nature lovers, walkers and mountain bikers, and anyone looking for a complete switch-off in unspoilt rural surroundings, it’s heaven. “The property is a modern property designed to look like a traditional Finca style property with 10,000m2 of land, including, 1,000m2 that is fenced around the property.  Mr J said, “It’s real Spain, where the locals hardly speak English. Benissa is just five minutes’ drive and has all the amenities you need, including large supermarkets, banks, restaurants, schools and a medical centre. We used to come almost every two months when the property wasn’t rented, when we would book cheap flights to Alicante Airport, 60 minutes away, or Valencia Airport, One-and-a-half  hours away. We’ve had some great parties there with friends and family and never had to worry about making too much noise!” Mr J´s terrace – ideal for peaceful sunsets! Mr J´s property is also near Denia, Javea and Moraira, which offers excellent water-based activities, such as kayaking, paddle, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, water skiing or jet ski excursions.  Scenic Medieval towns such as Javea old town and Denia Castle are perfect places to visit or enjoy a lazy lunch. Mr J has been very successful in letting the stone finca to holidaymakers and had no trouble finding guests between February and October. “We used to get repeat business,” he said. “We had a lot of European people, who liked the natural, private setting, and it also attracted naturists, walkers and bird-watchers. One of the reasons for purchasing in this area on the Costa Blanca North was the warm winter sun". Mr J is now looking to sell the finca. It is on the market for just 345,000€. The property is structurally sound with insulated walls, the property IS NOT on the mains grid for electricity, however there is a diesel generator. Mr J has looked at installing Solar panels, and has a local quote. Gas central heating and water is delivered by tanker and stored in the large water depositio under the pool terrace. With a bit of attention you could almost be self-sufficient there. It would make a great project for someone who was looking to create their own idyllic bolt-hole, either as a permanent, holiday home, or rental investment.

Holiday survival kit – 5 items every family can't do without

To get the most out of your holiday home you will need all the right gear. Spanish homeowner’s five must-haves that will help make your family holidays a success. Inflatable’s!Killer whale, dinghy or plain old Lillo, expect inflatable’s to become a part of your life when you own a holiday home with access to water. Even more so if you have kids. Resistance is futile, given they are displayed outside virtually every shop along your typical beachfront, triggering pleas from desperate little ones.  It is quite normal to ignore the warnings about overloading it, so typically they need replacing on an annual basis – don´t bother trying to patch up holes, it never works. Get yourself a decent foot-pump, or risk passing out after half an hour of wheezing down a rubber hole that barely opens. SunshadesKids can be especially grouchy after a long day at the beach.  Energy levels zapped by the sun, sticky from the residue of Calippos and with sand grating against wet cosies and in just about every crevice of their body, if bare thighs hit car seats charged with a day’s worth of Mediterranean sunshine, the whole area will know about it.  Likewise the steering wheel will be too hot to touch. The solution is prevention.  First, point to note, the earlier you arrive by car anywhere in a hot country, be it the beach, supermarket or A&E, the higher your chances of landing yourself a parking space in the shade. If you do need to leave your vehicle in the sun for some time, get a screen for not only the windscreen but also all the other windows.  The kids will thank you for it. Remember, too much sun equals grumpiness and, in the worst cases, sunburn and illness.  Sunshades should be omnipresent as you go about your life in the sunshine. The beach bagThe phrase ‘nipping to the beach’, like you did as a carefree, golden-tanned teenager with nothing more than a towel under your arm, becomes defunct when you grow up and have little ones. Organisation is key to making the day a success and pivotal to this is the carefully prepared beach bag. The bag itself needs to be super big with easy access to the inside, ideally made of cloth or another hardy material that doesn’t perish when wet, have a zip able inside pocket for money, phone and keys.  Contents, as a bare minimum, will include drinks, snacks, sun-cream, towels, Frisbee, bat and ball, mask and snorkel, and bucket and spade (which often ends up being carried).  Everything else – the sunshade, folding chairs, mats and a ball can be carried.  Don’t be surprised to gain the odd spade or bucket along the way. Insect repellent(s)Comparing mosquito –  or mozzie – bites is a popular pastime of Brits abroad, often done at breakfast after a dawn raid by the whining critters.  We throw around different theories about why one person is ‘tastier’ than another is, or offer convenient ways to keep them away: wash less and booze more – they are attracted to sweet scented soap but deterred by alcohol in the blood… Repellent seems to work for some people but not all, otherwise the plug-in devices are effective.  Actually, one of the simplest solutions to avoid being bitten is to keep doors and windows shut as much as possible.  Ants are often a problem in hot climates too.  Not leaving food out and sweeping up after every meal will help, otherwise a good dose of Raid will keep them at bay. Candles and cardsWarm evenings sat out playing rummy or Uno by candlelight have become a highlight of our holidays.  The children’s normal bedtimes go out the window, as they hone their card-playing skills and you pathetically double bluffing about trying your hardest to win as you sneak glances at their cards.  Pick candles that come in a variety of coloured glass jars and scented with citronella to make things that extra bit more exotic!

Diving on the Costa Blanca North

According to www.activacostablanca.com The Costa Blanca has many more good diving spots than you might assume, either you are an experienced diver, or want to learn it, here is some information for you.  There are some best dive sites on the Costa Blanca that is called the coastal zone of the Mediterranean Sea, located in the southeast of Spain, in the province of Alicante. And of these 244 kilometers of coastline, what are the best beaches for diving,  Let’s name the most important. Playa de la Granadella: Located in the town of Javea, this beach is considered one of the best in Spain. It is a dream space where perfectly sea and mountains, crystal clear waters and greenery of Mediterranean pine trees are combined. Thanks to these turquoise waters, dive experience within these waters becomes something unique. Las Rotas: In the town of Denia, following the road from Denia to Javea, we find Las Rotas, a set of small spots divided into three zones (A, B and C) ending at Cape San Antonio coves, whose seabed is listed as a marine reserve area and therefore is protected. El Penon de Ifach: In Calpe, we have another one of those areas where diving becomes a great experience. As diving is very deep here, it will be necessary to have a certain level of diving experience when diving. Cala Moraig: Finally we emphasize the Cala Moraig in Cumbres del Sol urbanization in Benitachell, as another magnificent crystal clear creek where we can enjoy diving. In addition, this cove is renown for having a famous undersea route, a route of medium-high difficulty and about 45 minutes long. This is a very desirable area to carry out the practice of cave diving. For more information about these areas if you are considering a lifestyle change to the Costa Blanca North, please contact Molino Villas  www.molinovillas.com or ring on 0034 966 492 335.

Getting from Alicante Airport to Moraira or Javea

Unless you have friends to collect you, the easiest way to go from the Airport to this area is by hiring a car because it's likely that you will need a car whilst you are here.  There are many car hire companies and if you are a regular,  there are good deals to be had. Another option is to purchase a run around and leave it at the Airport at one of the well known car hire depots, who look after your car and with prior notice,  prepare the car ready for your arrival. They allow 10 free collections per year and this means, there is no additional cost and no waiting at the Car hire desks. Another option now is to catch the Beniconnect Bus, a Benidorm based and family run company which is fully licensed and insured.  It provides a service to connect local towns ie Benissa, Calpe, Moraira, Benitachell and Javea and now also the inland villages of Jalon and Orba. The average cost is from 18 to 28 euros depending on where you are boarding. If you have a larger family it may not be so cost effective and you may need to enquire for a price on a vehicle with 10 to 12 seats. You can contact them by telephone on 0034 965 850 790 or email at reservas@beniconnect.com If you feel that you would like to purchase a property in any of these areas, please contact us via our email address on info@molinovillas.com or visit our website on www.molinovillas.com 0034 966 492 335.

Are you looking to Sell your property ?

Are You Looking To Sell Your Property? If so, The Staff At Molino Villas,  based in Moraira, Would like to help you. Now you have made that decision to sell, take advantage of our offer to prepare and pay for your EPC Certificate, (if we sell your property). Kerb Appeal And Consideratios When Selling Your Property. The time is right for you to sell.  For most people the first thing that comes to mind is price, and probably visiting an Agent. The Agent's job is to offer sound advice on pricing, paperwork essential to the sale, and importantly advising on preparing the property in its best light for marketing it successfully. Kerb appeal means the first impression that 'would be' purchasers have of the house.  It is the most important thing, because you only get one chance at this, and it sets the mood for viewing in depth. A tidy garden, clean driveway/entrance, good clean paintwork on gates, walls, and front door are a must. A clean swimming pool, tidily arranged garden furniture and no washing all enhance the general appearance. Entering the Property. A fresh smell, no cooking odours from last night's curry or today's fish! Rover and Felix maybe your best friends but doggy smells, excited greetings, and incessant barking, the site of Cat Litter and abandoned food are definite turn offs! Space is always at the top of buyers' lists. If possible, without turning your home into a show house, remove some of your personal knick knacks, re arrange furniture, hide the washing, cooking ingredients and utensils etc in the kitchen, and other items that give a cluttered (some call it homely!) impression.  Loud noise from televisions etc. have a jarring effect on visitors on serious business and make it difficult for the Agent to make themselves heard! The Agent is a professional sales person, who should have interviewed his client to find out their most important criteria, and would then point out the salient points of your property,  so it is usually best to let him/her do their job in leading the viewing .  Too many people following the buyers around and making them uncomfortable and can make rooms look smaller.  In fact it is better for the seller to go out for a coffee, whilst the Agent is showing the prospective purchaser around your home. Too much Information: One of the most common questions the sellers are asked is 'why are you selling'.  They do not need to know it is because you have fallen out with the obnoxious neighbours, hate Spain, or you have found you miss your family more than you anticipated.  This will make the 'would be' buyers consider their own plans for moving. Remember you are paying for professional advice from both your agent and legal representative so it makes sense to listen to it. Our staff at Molino Villas like to work as a team and we encourage our sellers to take our advice and work as a team with us, it is a win win situation for all. www.molinovillas.com 0034 966 492 335
