Buying Property in the Costa de la Luz

Costa de la Luz Guide

Cádiz and its neighbouring province of Huelva are often referred to as the Costa de la Luz – “Coast of Light” because of the crystal clarity of the blue skies in the region.

Famed for white sandy beaches along a relatively unspoilt Atlantic-facing coastline, the Costa is a popular destination for tourists - still, it has managed to avoid the built-up resort infrastructure and busy excesses of some of Spain’s other Costas. 

Cádiz is Andalucía’s southernmost province and offers potential home buyers the benefit of a very diverse terrain, which gives them lots of choice – not only of where to buy but also of places to visit and explore in the surrounding area.

The countryside around the town of Jerez de la Frontera is beautiful, with typically Andalucían white villages scattered among its palm tree-lined horizon - whereas, the coastline between Tarifa and Sanlucár de Barrameda is particularly breathtaking. There is a strong gastronomic tradition in Cádiz, with traditional dishes originating from both its mountain and coastal areas.

Located in the west of Andalucía and bordering Portugal, Huelva province also offers a variety of beautiful and delicate natural landscapes, including those of the Sierra Morena mountain range and its Costa de la Luz encompassing shoreline. 

Getting to the Costa de la Luz from the UK is straightforward. Flights to the provincial capitals of Cádiz and Huelva take about two hours 40 minutes. 

Where to Buy Property in Costa de la Luz 

More and more house hunters are beginning to discover the appeal of the region with its beautiful beaches, noteworthy restaurants and favourable conditions for a variety of water sports including kitesurfing and sailing.

Popular buying destinations include Cádiz and Huelva cities, as well as the towns of Chiclana de la Frontera, Palos de la Frontera (renowned departure site for Christopher Columbus’ journey to America), and Aracena.

Expect to pay about €100 – 120,000 for a two-bed apartment and upwards of €300,000 for three+ bedroom villa with pool.
