HOT Costa del Sol - Hole in One
When the highest quality meets unbelievably low prices plus a fabulous location, it's a match made in heaven – an opportunity you just can’t afford to miss. So whether you're looking for a luxury holiday home, a viable long-term investment, or a rental apartment that will pay its own way... Calanova Grand Golf is guaranteed to suit you down to a tee...
Just ten minutes from Fuengirola, and a mere 20-minute drive from both Marbella and Málaga airport, it's no surprise that the Mijas Golf Valley is already renowned as a property hotspot. As if all that weren't enough, it also boasts more golf courses per capita than any other region of Spain, not to mention it’s spectacular scenery of course.
But there's even more to it than that because future plans include the siting nearby of two major new leisure attractions, the Mijas Jurassic Park and the proposed Mijas Marina (www.marinamijas.com); while the new coastal railway line currently on the drawingboard -linking Malaga and Fuengirola to Estepona and eventually Algeciras -significantly includes a train station at La Cala de Mijas. All of which should make anyone thinking of investing in a property in the area more than happy!
“SEEING IS BELIEVING An 'island' oasis amid a sea of lush greens and fairways.”
And where better than Calanova Grand Golf...
Of all Golf Valley's quality courses, Calanova is the nearest to the beach - it's just a 5-minute drive - with uninterrupted sea and mountain views that will simply take your breath away. Designed by Manuel Pinero, the 18-hole, par 72 course was opened in 2006. Described as "hilly and challenging", in 2009 alone, Calanova Golf chalked up more than 30,000 green fees. Indeed, the day the HOT Properties team visited in September of this year, PGA Pro Monty Bordelon - who leads the Calanova Golf Academy, has three years' Tour experience, and has been the Head Pro of several of the most prestigious golf clubs in Florida - was showing the ropes to no fewer than 123 enthusiastic players who clearly couldn't wait to get to grips with the 5,866-metre course!
AFFORDABLE LUXURY Key ready, quality proper-ties unbelievably starting from just €124,000!
Occupying a prime frontline location at Calanova, the Calanova Grand Golf develop-ment sits proud, like an island amid a sea of lush greens and fairways wending their way towards the sparkling blue ocean below. Surrounded by 20,000 square metres of beautifully landscaped subtropical gardens, with two huge swimming pools, pretty cascades and water features, padel tennis and children's play area, the gated complex with 24-hour security comprises 393 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses spread across 15 attractively designed 4-storey buildings. The private clubhouse - complete with spa, gym, bar and restaurant - opens next summer.
With all licenses in place and mortgages available subject to status, the key ready properties - each with its own underground parking and storeroom -are built and equipped to very high standards, featuring hot and cold air-conditioning, marble floors and bathrooms, electronic entry phone, and fully-fitted kitchens with Bosch appliances. Each property has its own spacious terrace, while the penthouses also have a barbecue and jacuzzi.
And when you hear the prices, well, you won't believe your ears because 1-bedroom, 1 bathroom apartments start from a penny-pinching €124,000. Two-bed, 2 bath apartments (65m2 built area + terrace of between 15 and 60m2) start from €145,000; and 3-bed units are available from €185,000.
