Last day of May

As the month of May ends and many are looking forward to the official start of summer – and maybe a San Juan celebration, too, if you’re already living in Spain – it’s time to take a look back at the 5 most viewed properties on the Costa del Sol in May, according to our web analytics data.

Interestingly, and yet unsurprisingly, the number of penthouses in May’s top 5 list is higher than in previous months. This trend suggests our VIVA website visitors are basing their property searches around ample terrace space and being able to fully enjoy the Costa del Sol climate from the comfort of a new dream home abroad… especially in time for the long, warm summer just around the corner.

Top 5

Have a look below to see May’s 5 most viewed properties on the Costa del Sol (in order of web views), which include two price reductions, one key-ready development and two new VIVA listings.

5 Most Viewed Costa del Sol Properties in May: penthouse in Mijas

2. Penthouse in Mijas Costa
New Listing | €260,000

VIVA web users love this two-bedroom penthouse in Mijas Golf because it ticks all the boxes. It offers fantastic views, is just a short drive to the beach and amenities, is within walking distance of the nearest golf club and is located in a beautifully-maintained complex.

What’s more, the property comes fully-furnished, meaning the new owner need only pick up the keys and move in or, alternatively, put it directly on the rental market and start making additional income straight away… which would be generous, given its golf location and the quality of the apartment.
