The Cost of Sunshine

by Julia on April 13, 2018

With Spring approaching, Brits are getting ready for the summer by swapping their winter clothes for their summer wear. But unfortunately, the UK at the best of times doesn’t always provide much sunshine. In fact, many would agree the UK seriously lacks in sunshine. This is why many holiday home owners are searching for holiday properties in Spain, where the sun lasts 3 hours more each day.

Buying a holiday home surrounded by sunlight, makes perfect sense but could it be pricey? Well it doesn’t have to be, in fact buying in the Turkish Riviera where in some towns you could enjoy over 2,600 hours of sunshine per year could cost you £45,000 for a one or two-bed apartment. Whereas, buying a small holiday property in Eastbourne you may £150,000 but only receive 1,900 hours of sunshine per year. Holiday apartments can be surprisingly affordable, even in hot and exciting places.

Buying a property abroad isn’t just about getting out your summer wear, the more sunshine you’re exposed to, the happier and healthier you’ll be. So where will you get the most sun for your money?
