La Duquesa, Spain, Jasmine Harman

Semi-retired children’s nurse Tracey is looking for a holiday home in La Duquesa on Spain’s Costa del Sol and she’s brought along her friend Jackie for moral support. On hand to help find her the best of what her £140,000 budget can get is property expert Jasmine Harman. Jasmine has five attempts to find her the perfect place, but will any be right up Jackie’s street?

About the area

The region of La Duquesa is a 45 minute drive from Malaga airport to which direct flights from the UK take under 3 hours. It’s long been a bit of a hidden gem along the Costa Del Sol and there remains vast swathes of unspoiled natural scenery and authentic Spanish character. However, this tranquillity is fast becoming mixed with a thriving tourist and expat community, as La Duquesa is one of the Costa Del Sol’s fastest growing regions - the number of residents has almost tripled in the last 10 years. There’s now a glitzy marina with a fab atmosphere heightened by its surrounding shops, restaurants, and bars. The average summer temperatures of 29 degrees can be enjoyed along its many beaches, lots still quieter than neighbouring hotspots and the perfect place for some sunbathing or sports.
