El Campello Apartments Less Costly For Brits Thanks To Strong Pound

money exchange el campello
Great news if you're a Brit planning to buy an apartment in El Campello: it's now less expensive for you to do so, because the pound has shot up against the euro over the last 18 months. To be specific, sterling recently touched its highest versus the common currency in 2 years, or since August 21st 2012, at 1.2699.

What this means for you is that your dream apartment in El Campello is now more affordable. For example, were you to transfer £125,000 to Spain to buy an apartment, you'd now receive +€17,000 more than 18 months ago, in March 2013, when sterling was as low as 1.1371. So, that's an extra +€17,000 to buy your ideal El Campello apartment!

Moreover, there's a good chance that buying an apartment in El Campello will become even better value for Brits, if sterling continues to climb. The pound may exceed this 2-year high, because the UK economy is growing faster than any other major country right now, while the Eurozone faces the twin threats of economic stagnation and deflation. 

So, 2014 now looks like a great time to buy in El Campello, as the strong pound makes doing so more affordable!

Living & Working In Spain - Alicante To El Campello

economy spain el campello
Whether in Alicante or El Campello, I have been living in Spain now for coming on 30 years and have seen at first hand the major changes that have taken place here over the last couple of years, with the economical cutbacks having a direct impact on basic necessity items like electricity bills and daily food requirements.

Currently for those who have already decided to take up residence here in Spain, it has been on the news recently about Spaniards being asked to leave Brussels, after being without work for 6 months, so that ruling could affect out of work UK nationals having problems with finding a job.

Back in the late 80s, I remember always having to carry my passport on me as well as actually being stopped by the police and asked to produce my official documents. I could only legally stay for 3 months in Spain and also had a visa stamp in my passport that specified my status as a tourist.

When I decided to start working properly in Spain I become a resident and was given permission to work as an English Teacher. So back in the late 80s and I had to get my recently achieved T.O.E.F.L (teaching English as a foreign language) qualification from Hilderstone College (Broadstairs) recognised by the Spanish education board.

This involved a couple of trips to Madrid and quite a long winded and expensive process, but eventually I had my papers all official to begin living and working in Spain, so no more having to be always be looking over my shoulder.

bodyshop in alicanteI later became involved in a company that managed a number of high street businesses in Alicante including The Bodyshop. I became a member of the local shopkeepers association and eventually in about 1995/6 became President of the "AsociaciĆ³n de Comerciantes de Maisonnave" for 6 consecutive years. It was actually working in Spain that improved my understanding of the Spanish language, you might say thrown in at the deep end, but I am now fluent in both written and spoken Spanish.

I have lived in the centre of Alicante, as well as in Albuferreta, Playa San Juan, Alicante Golf and Busot, but I am currently promoting "living in El Campello" and giving advice to other people who may be considering living in this part of Spain, known as the Costa blanca.

Why Holiday Rental Apartments Make Great Property Investments In El Campello

When people look for holiday rentals, in general the property needs to be close to the sea or at least have a swimming pool, and air conditioning would also be important. Holiday makers generally look for sunshine destinations too, and El Campello has plenty of that all year round, with temperatures today reaching 25 degrees, and we're only in February.


The beach in El Campello is a long strip of clean golden sands, and gets packed out in the summer months, so you'll need to get up early for a cool spot by the sea, otherwise you can stroll down to the beach with ease throughout the rest of the year as the Spaniards in general stay away.

Access to El Campello couldn't be easier, with the Alicante airport just a 25 minute drive away, and with Alicante itself just a 2 - 3 hour connection flight away from most major cites in Europe. You will always find cheap flights to Alicante, especially with Easy Jet, Monarch and Ryan Air.

The apartment blocks in El Campello are 95% 5 or 6 storeys high with lift, and you can currently find 2 and 3 bedroom apartments for sale on 1st and 2nd line from about 150.000 Euro. The average asking price just a couple of years ago would have been about 250.000 Euro, so these apartments have now become very interesting property investments.

Rentals in El Campello are also some what lower now than a few years back for both long and short term lets. Long term rentals for 2 and 3 bedroom apartments by the beach range from 550 to 700 Euro per month, though in town that would be between 350 and 550 Euro. In summer high season, weekly rentals by the beach start from 500 Euro, and the season lasts 16 weeks (Mid June - Mid October).

The very best property investments are being sold quite quickly at the moment, with many being auctioned off by the banks, If you are seriously looking for a property investments or holiday home, then do consider El Campello as a very safe bet.

El Campello Is Ideal For Dog Owners

El Campello still is a quaint little fishing village, located just up the coast from Alicante.

El Campello Apartments
Many new apartment blocks were built during the golden years for property developers in this region, when growth hit it big time.

Then about five years ago it all came to a grind, as construction companies were suddenly left in trouble with the banks.

This was followed by a glut in the property market, and it suddenly became a problem to get rid of the apartments, and many have now been rented out as long term lets.

Very recently things do seem to be improving with some very cheap property investments being snapped up over the last 6 months, though you can still see lots of new apartments still here that haven't been sold yet.

el campello dog beach
Living in El Campello has been a real blessing for me, and I must say it's great for dog owners, having 2 myself, with Campello having a municipal park and open areas where the dogs can run free, and not to mention the only allocated dog beach in the whole of the Alicante region, and it's right here in El Campello

The ideal location in El Campello for dog owners to buy a property would be from the Campello end of Muchavista beach to the dry river bed "Rio Seco", along by the bridge where both the municipal dog park and beach are situated, and up until about Lidl's supermarket in the San Bartolome road would still be within easy walking distance.

There are quite a few supermarkets dotted throughout El Campello, as well as having both Primary and Secondary schools, a public health centre and the Tram station in the heart of the town. The next stop towards Alicante is Pla barraques, where there are 2 schools, as well as having some great restaurants within walking distance, like my favourite Indian restaurant "The Star of India", which itself is right by Lidl's supermarket.

el campello park
The latest addition to El Campello is the central green park, which is ideal for young children. Beware dog owners, as you won't be made welcome in that park, but I never said El Campello was perfect. There is a restaurant in the park, as well as swings and things for the kiddies to play on.

El Campello could be set to becoming a budding tourist town in the future, and it could be on the horizon with plans of a new University being built here, so that should boost the property market, as well as activating the private sector and local traders, who have certainly seen better times than at present.

This small town with a population of about 22000 is the ideal holiday location throughout the whole year, due to the mild winter in El Campello, so why not consider travelling here for a vacation this year and see for this beautiful town for yourself.

Finally for dog owners, it's a real treat living here in El Campello, and not just for the great climate.
Your dogs will just love it here too!
