If you totally want to immerse yourself into Spanish culture but still be within reach of the glamour of the Costa del So,l Arrecife Residencial may be the place for you.
Reasonably priced from 11 million pesetas they offer comfortable accommodation without the normal frills of the nearby luxury blocks. Swimming pools, luxurious gardens and maid service are excellent amenities to have but they all have to be paid for as some of the exorbitant community charges down the coast will testify.
Arrecife Residential offers down to earth centrally situated accommodation, ideal as a retirement, holiday or permanent home, or as a rental investment. The location is very convenient at only 20 minutes or so drive to Malaga Airport and moments from the main N-340 highway. Also it is close to all amenities in Fuengirola including shops, sports centre and the local swimming pool.
When buying in a block which is going to be primarily inhabited by Spaniards it is as well to find out beforehand what satellite facilities the building will have. Also bear in mind that the community may be run by Spanish people and the meeting notes will be in Spanish. If you are not fluent in Spanish make sure that you are provided with an official translation in your own language of the contract so that you are well aware of the financial obligations you are undertaking.
Arrecife Residencial offer two and three bedroom flats, the larger ones have 70 metres square terraces and two bathrooms. There is a choice of two colours of marble for the floors and generally the fittings appear to be good value for money. There are also garages and storerooms available to purchase.
