I am looking to buy a property in Valle Del Este. Has anyone any advice or info regarding the pros and cons. What’s it like out of season, communal charges, the commercial centre etc. Will be coming over next year for a week and will be staying in the area to get a feel for it. However, some of the property looks a real bargain. Are they too good to be true or are there real bargains still to be had? Is there a sense of community out of season and, are there things to do in the winter month. Also, how is the weather between say October and April? Is the cost of living better than in the UK? Sorry for all the questions, any info would be appreciated. One more, does anyone do the airport run for a bit of cash from Almería or do we need to get transfers? Thanks in advance.

We looked there and the yearly community fees were quite a lot higher than average which put us off.

There are a few 'bargains' to be had I think but it's a drive to anywhere else other than the small 'centre' which I suppose is why.

On the flip side I expect you can rent out to golfers a lot of weeks in the year and if your a golfer then I suppose it's a bonus!!

We have property at Valle del Este for 3 years and we enjoy it every time when we are here, playing golf for a good price, in a well kept area nice gardens and a vieuw on a always green area.

Be carefull with the bargains  hire a gestor,there is a lot of property with hidden debts, Community costs are different for  each community ask the real estate agent they should know

In the winter it is quiet but that is the whole area

To get a idea book the hotel ( they have good bargains) walk arround speak with people who live at Valle del Este and get the feeling

You can also rent , you can rent very cheap

Thanks for your help. I’m not a golfer but have friends and family who are. This could off set the fees a bit too. Food for thought!

I rent and live at VdE full time.  Weather during October - April can be Cold, but not bitter - it is quite varied.  Jan 1, 2018 saw me sitting on the deck outside in shorts and shirtless!!  Coming from the UK, you’ll find winters here relatively mild.

The Centro Comercial is small, but is growing. Hola Fibra have a sales point there and supply whole if VdE with a good Fibre Optic internet service (I pay 30€ for 100MBPs synchronous).  There is a small Coviran supermarket there, and English sports bar that screens all football matches etc if your into that, an amazing seafood restaurant and a Thai restaurant.  South East Telecoms also has a presence there and supplies English IPTV boxes (again, if you are so minded)

The entire complex is maintained year round and fees cover the cost of cutting the grass in your garden (if you have a ground floor or duplex) and maintenance of rest of complex.  We haven’t found the fees that high and the rent is very reasonably priced.

It certainly quietens down after September, but it doesn’t die as people are coming here for Christmas etc.

The hotel does an amazing breakfast and dinner at reduced rates for residents of VdE complex and the Spa in the hotel is very reasonably priced - and is magical in Winter!

Also living here, the Shell garage at the 529 exit gives you discount on petrol.  I drive a diesel and so enjoy 6c a litre discount merely for living at VdE.  We’ve lived here permanently since September 2017 and now regard July / August as “too busy” and actually look forward to the non-tourist months ... I love it here at VdE and would not wish to give it up.  I have a view of the Mediterranean from my bedroom and palm trees and greenery everywhere I look.  Every single day here really is like being on holiday.  Even off peak
