kyero logoIf you’re thinking about moving to warmer shores and living life in sunnier climes, you’re not the only one. Every year, almost 100,000 Brits move abroad, with Spain being the top European choice – and there are many reasons for this.

Fabulous weather, delicious food, a relaxed lifestyle, and a warm, welcoming culture are just a few of Spain’s offerings. Plus, it was recently named the healthiest country in the world by the Bloomberg Global Health Index when it comes to physical and mental wellbeing.

So, if you’re interested in living a healthy, happy life, a move may make sense.

Why is Spain a popular location for a move abroad?

Aside from the weather, cuisine, and lifestyle, another perk of moving to Spain is that it’s affordable, with a great healthcare system, and excellent transport links. Its large size also means it’s unusually diverse – home to rugged mountains, sweeping beaches, quiet villages, and cosmopolitan cities – which means wherever you’re dreaming of living, you’re sure to find somewhere to suit you.

The diversity of the properties themselves is another plus. There are traditional townhouses, cosy studio apartments, quiet country retreats, and grand villas – and we’ve featured all four below.

More good news is that all the properties in this article are under €200,000 and you might be surprised to see how much your money can get you.

To get you inspired and show you what’s out there, we’ve partnered with Kyero – a real estate marketplace for international buyers – to bring you 10 budget properties for sale in Spain. We’d love to hear which one is your favourite in the comments below.

Traditional townhouse, Árchez, Málaga, €50,000

If you like the idea of living in a traditional townhouse in a sleepy village, look no further. This two-bedroom property has plenty of character, yet is also a bit of a blank canvas, ready for a new owner to put their stamp on it. As well as the main apartment, there’s also a spacious roof terrace and an independent utility room big enough to be converted into a separate apartment.

The house is south-facing with lovely village and countryside views, and it’s situated in the main square of Árchez, giving you easy access to amenities, and allowing you to enjoy the perks of village life. Plus, it’s less than an hour’s drive from Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport and Torre Del Mar, a popular local holiday destination, is a 30-minute drive away. At €50,000, it’s also a steal!

2. Country house, Roquetes, €75,000

Country house, Roquetes, €75,000

Are you looking for a property with lots of land, whether to grow your own fruit and veg, start your own business, or just enjoy sunbathing on? This characterful country house in Roquetes is situated on 16,000 square metres of partly fenced land, with olive trees dotted around the grounds. At just €75,000, you get a lot of land for your money – especially when you consider it comes furnished.

While inside the one-bedroom, one-bathroom property is small, a mezzanine level gives the illusion of space – and outside there’s a 40 square metres of warehousing and a 300-litre water tank filled by a natural fountain.
