Castillo links to Puerto de la Duquesa

Filed under: Local Events & Culture — Barrington Homes @ 10:29 am

Last time, I spoke to you about new green zones in the Duquesa, Sabinillas and Manilva areas.  Well there is more good news and yet more redevelopment of our area being planned.

The paseo that runs between Castillo and Puerto de la Duquesa is heading for a facelift and not a moment too soon. The fencing is up and the works have a completion date of spring 2011, so finally the beautiful area of Castillo will now be linked properly to Puerto de la Duquesa. Interestingly, not only are there going to be solar powered lamps being installed but recycled street furniture also. The environment department in Manilva is stepping up at the moment and a pilot scheme for energy efficient street lights is also in place in the Poza del Rey area of Manilva.

The Paseo works will be carried out in front of the impressive Marina del Castillo development which sits resplendent on the beachfront and is a much sought after address.  It’s location within walking distance to Puerto de la Duquesa and Castillo and the development’s proximity to the beach means that this is an extremely popular address for residents, holiday makers and investors alike.  Barrington Homes currently have property available to buy in the pretigious Marina del Castillo and Barrington Holidays have several apartments available to rent in Marina del Castillo; but I recommend you book early as these beautiful apartments are snapped up.

If you need any further information regarding property in Marina del Castillo or any other urbanisation, please contact Damian or Claire at Barrington Homes.

Accessibility improves for the Manilva and Duquesa area.

Filed under: Duquesa Information — Barrington Homes @ 12:11 pm

The all new and shiny airport in Malaga is the pride of the Costa del Sol and the accessibility to the Costa del Sol area from all over the world has been greatly improved with the expansion. But for those visiting and living in the Duquesa and the Manilva area, who regularly make use of Malaga Airport, you now have another option in Gibraltar Airport.

On the 29th March 2011, Easyjet are opening a new flight destination from Gibraltar Airport to the North of England: Three times a week, Easyjet will be flying from Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport to Gibraltar Airport.  The flights are available online now at great prices. This coincides with the impressive new airport being constructed in Gibraltar so not only will the amount of flights into Gibraltar increase but the comfort and ease of using Gibraltar airport will improve immensely.

With the accessibility of our western stretch of the Costa del Sol opening up, we can hope that the convenience, more choice and costs of visiting Duquesa and Manilva become a persuading factor when holiday makers and investors alike are choosing a destination to visit next year.  The local economy would do well to attract a boost in tourism in 2011 and with the amazing property prices that Barrington Homes have available in the Duquesa, Manilva and Casares Costa areas, the private and professional investors alike will once again take notice of this beautiful part of Spain.

If you are looking for a property in the Duquesa, Manilva and Casares Costa areas, contact Damian Barrington or myself and we will do all we can to help you find the right property for you, at the right price.
