Some time ago I wrote for you about Spain, Portugal and France as great locations to buy a holiday property, a second home or even a main residence for a family. Today it’s time for another destination, the beautiful Balkan Croatia.
Croatia – more than a holiday destination
After Spain, Portugal and France, Croatia, located on the Adriatic Sea, is the next destination I suggest to my clients. It is a beautiful country in the south of Europe with a long coastline, over one thousand two hundred smaller and larger islands (of which only 66 are inhabited), good cuisine and quite good spirits. For some time now, my company Crystal House has also been active in this market and provides clients with a comprehensive service – from identifying the ideal property, to showing and checking all the documents, to finalising the transaction and subsequent support e.g. in renting (in the case of investment properties).
And why is this destination worth considering? Here are 3 reasons that make Croatia a great alternative to the south of western Europe.
1. Cheaper than the south-west of Europe
This is due to the fact that Croatia was for a long time part of the former Yugoslavia and thus part of Eastern Europe.
2. Close to Poland
Croatia is closer from Poland than the Côte d’Azur, Spain or Portugal.
3. Beautiful coastline and sea
Croatia’s coastline is as long as … 5790 km! This is because Croatia has more than 1,000 islands that also count as part of its coastline. Besides, the Croatian Adriatic is simply wonderful and I do not know anyone who would not fall in love with the country’s coastline.
Apart from anything else, Croatia is simply a beautiful country that is worth not only visiting, but also living in!
