GBP/EUR exchange rate the best for buying Euros since 2012 !

Filed under: Currency Information — Barrington Homes @ 9:31 pm

Great News for anyone wishing to buy a property in 2014 ! The GBP/EUR exchange rate has made a clear breach of 1.26, offering one of the best opportunities for buying Euros over the last 2 years. This means that anyone from the UK who wishes to exchange Pounds to Euros to buy a property will get even better ‘value’ for their overseas property purchase.

The ECB have also announced that they are committed to implementing unconventional monetary easing measures in the Eurozone to combat the threat of deflation in the future. This could be in the form of Quantitative Easing, which historically weakens the currency in question. With the UK economy performing well in recent months, whilst the Eurozone continues to post inconsistent data releases, the long-term view for GBP/EUR is that the rate will continue to rise. Currency Experts predict that we could see the Pound put pressure on 1.30 against the Euro by the end of this year.

Channels 4’s ‘A Place In The Sun’ features Barrington Homes !

Filed under: About Barrington Homes,Property — Barrington Homes @ 8:57 pm

Channel 4’s popular overseas property program ‘A Place In The Sun’ has once again featured some of Barrington Homes properties. The team were busy filming in the Duquesa area last week for 2 property programs to be broadcast later in the year. This is the second time that ‘A Place in the Sun’ have filmed with Barrington Homes and we were delighted to welcome them back so they can once again showcase our beautiful area and properties to millions of viewers.


The previous program resulted in an incredible increase in interest in property in Duquesa and certainly far more people knowing of Manilva rather than some of the more established resorts in the Costa del Sol. The clients bought a property in Sabinillas from Barrington Homes and are now renting the property with our rental company Barrington Holidays. A great success story for Barrington Homes debut TV show !

The clients for these upcoming programs had a budget of 120,000€ and selected to view the following properties.

2 Bedroom Apartment in Urb. Paraiso de la Bahia http://www.barringtonhomes.eu/Casares+Costa-Property/Paraiso-de-la-Bahia-S023.htm

2 Bedroom Apartment in Urb. Las Buganvillas http://www.barringtonhomes.eu/Duquesa-Property/Las+Buganvillas-S189.htm

3 Bedroom Townhouse in Urb. Duquesa Golf http://www.barringtonhomes.eu/Duquesa-Property/Duquesa+Golf-S036.htm

We are currently waiting for the potential property purchasers featured in the program to make an offer on the lovely townhouse in Urb. Duquesa Golf. As soon as the broadcast dates for both ‘A Place In The Sun’ programs are released we will announce them.
