3 Bedroom Apartment with Stunning View Overlooking Canal, Santa Margarita, Roses, Girona, Costa Brava, Spain
Nancy Apartment Block,
Known as the most beautiful of Spain’s three main holiday coasts, the Costa Brava continues to be one of the most desirable places to be at any time of year. On offer here is the chance to invest into this wonderful part of the world with this perfectly located apartment.
Located in the Nancy building, in Santa Margarita, in the beautiful Roses region of Spain, this fantastic apartment features 3 bedrooms, beautiful open-plan design and a balcony area overlooking the picturesque canal area nearby. The apartment is also just minutes away from the breath-taking beach areas that make this part of Spain so sought-after.
This property not only offers buyers a comfortable, spacious and modern place to live but also an exciting venture into the Spanish holiday rental market, thanks to its spectacular location. Thanks to the emergence of direct rental sites such as Airbnb and booking.com, this market has been growing rapidly over the past decade and the Costa Brava is consistently one of the most popular areas across Europe for holiday rentals.
This location is also the perfect base from which to discover many of Spain’s other fascinating areas such as nearby Figueres, Girona and the iconic city of Barcelona (just over 2 hours away by car). For those wishing to explore a little further, Roses is also a great base to explore other countries and cultures in the area thanks to its proximity to France and Andorra. As well as the wonderful beaches and marina areas nearby, this area is also famed for its lush green areas such as the nearby nature reserve known as Paratge Natural d’interes Nacional de l’Albera and there are also many areas of historical interest and significance in the region such as the Ciutadella de Roses.
Sports and leisure fans will be delighted with the vast array of walking, cycling, water sports and fishing areas in the vicinity and there are also many excellent golf courses nearby such as Torremirona Golf Club and Golf Peralada.
Soccer fans will also be keen to note that the area’s proximity to Barcelona, means it is just 2 hours away from one of the most iconic sporting venues in the world, The Camp Nou, home stadium of FC Barcelona.
The area is also very well-connected transport wise via road, air, with Girona-Costa Brava international Airport just 69km away, and via the sea, being so close to the coast. This is of course yet another massive plus point in the context of the holiday rental market.
ABOUT THE AREA
Roses (or Rosas in Spanish) has the largest fishing fleet of the Costa Brava, but like so many other towns along Catalonia’s coast its main income nowadays is derived from tourism.
The town is particularly popular for its splendid beaches and loved for its unique location: it is the only beach resort facing west, which means tourists and locals alike get to enjoy fantastic sunsets across the Gulf of Roses.
The vast majority of tourists come to Roses for its wide, clean, family-friendly beaches — all of which sport a Blue Flag, the European symbol for good water quality and a range of facilities.
Mind you, if you come for the beaches you should know that during the summer months Roses’ 30.000 citizens are vastly outnumbered by large crowds of tourists.
Among them many young people who enjoy the beach by day before diving into the town’s rich offering of nightlife.
in general, the beaches are large enough — 32 to 40 meters wide — that you won’t encounter any problems.
That said, those looking for a more tranquil beach experience tend to head to the smaller bays just past the harbour, away from the centre of town.
Right away there is Platja Palangres, which is popular with the locals, not in the least place because it includes a tree-shaded picnic area.
For a really nice experience it would be worth your while to take a taxi to either Canyelles Petites, or Canyelles Almadrava Grosses.
Canyelles Petites is 3 kilometres from the centre of Roses. it sports golden sand (310 meters long, 27 meters wide) and crystal-clear water with a sandy bottom. As an extra bonus it is sheltered from the north wind. Almadrava is about 1 kilometre further. it is a 450 meters long beach with fine sand and deep-blue water. it, too, is sheltered from the north wind.
Further up the coast there are plenty of small beaches reached, for the most part, only on foot or by boat. Right across from the centre of Roses is La Punta, a typical family beach with fine sand and calm, shallow water — great for small children.
Further down are the beaches of Nova, Rastrell, and Salatar — divided from each other by small streams. Together those three beaches offer 1.800 meters of fine sand and shallow water — ideal for families.
The Santa Margarida residential neighbourhood of Roses also has a great beach — 650 meters long and 40 meters wide, again with fine sand and shallow water. Santa Margarida also has a large marina with over 16 kilometres of navigable canals. Many affluent foreigners and locals have second homes here, and there are quite a few hotels and rental apartments.
