    From MyDestinationDOTcom:

    “Sanxenxo is often called the Marbella of the north! It is certainly one of the best and most up market resorts in all of Galicia and is very lively in July and August when many people arrive especially from the rest of Spain to take their holidays. Like other sheltered resorts with commanding views looking across the Ri­a de Pontevedra and toward the Illa de Ons it is has a micro-climate all of its own with warm, sheltered waters for bathing and an array of excellent beaches. Real estate values here are arguably some of the highest in world! With over 60 hotels in the Sanxenxo area it is a very lively and thriving resort in summer full of impressive restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Portonovo close to Sanxenxo which was originally a sailor’s village is also worth a visit if only to sample some of the best shellfish in all of Galicia! One of the best beaches in the area is La Lanzada which is a swimmers and surfers paradise. Sanxenxo is also a very good base to explore the surrounding area including the Rias de Arousa and Pontevedra. A number of places are worth visiting including O Grove, Cambados, Isla de Arousa, Villagarcia de Arousa and Pontevedra.”

    From wikipedia:
    “Sanxenxo is a municipality in Galicia, Spain in the province of Pontevedra. It is situated in the southern part of the Salnes region. It is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean in the estuaries of Pontevedra and Arosa, which lie in its western areas.

    It is a popular tourism destination. Sanxenxo is widely regarded as the best and certainly the most exclusive beach resort in Galicia.
    The busiest time to visit Sanxenxo is in July and August when this normally semi-deserted town is full of tourists. The bay area at this resort enjoys some of the warmest waters in all of Galicia. The entire area around this beach mecca is full of outstanding beaches and numerous former fishing towns.”

    This is a really good offer 8) . It’s a great price in an excellent location. I love Sanxenxo and that whole part of Spain. The only problem is there aren’t many foreigners looking for this area. But if someone IS looking for a flat there, then this is a no-brainer 😀

    1,020 sqft is 95 sqmt, so your asking price is 1,042 €/m2, which is definitely priced to sell. Anyone who knows anything about property will immediately see this is a very good price.

    How long does the drive take from the airport at Santiago de Compostela (flights from Dublin and London Stanstead)? How long from Vigo (flights from London Heathrow)?

    This video shows Sanxenxo and is worth watching:

    The only problem is there aren’t many foreigners looking for this area.

    The place looks great when filmed on a sunny day…
    But sunny days up there aren’t guaranteed. I’ve not been as far as Galicia, but have visited the north coast several times – Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque country. The scenery is great, but the climate is more variable.
    There is another factor too. It does seem to take longer to get to know people up there. A step too far for a foreigner who won’t have the normal expat support network to help blend into local society? You definitely have to speak the language fairly well.

    Apologies for the late response (I did not get a notification in my email about a reply to this thread)

    Mark – Thanks for your kind message and feedback. Yes, we are motivated sellers and have set the price to sell the apartment quickly. This truly is a fantastic opportunity to own a vacation property in one of the most popular vacation spots in Spain.

    The drive from Santiago De Compostela airport (SCQ) takes about 45 min. The closest airport is actually Vigo Airport (VGO). It is a very easy 30-min. We live in Los Angeles, California so Vigo airport is very convenient for us. It really offers multiple options such as LAX-MAD-VGO or LAX-CDG-VGO.

    You are correct about your assessment of Northern Spain but I would encourage you to visit Galicia, in particular the Southern region which has a climate of its own. “Rias Baixas” are well known for featuring a microclimate. The period from May through September is fantastic. I used to spend three months in Sanxenxo over the Summer and we enjoyed sunny days for the vast majority of it. Yes, you would get the occasional rainy day but to me, it was a perfect opportunity to visit the countryside and take a break from the beach. Furthermore, temperatures during the Summer are perfect. During the day, temperatures would rise to the low 30s C but they would come down to the low 20s C at night. Rias Baixas definitely benefit from the rainy season since they offer a beautiful scenery all year long.

    There is plenty of info regarding this microclimate on the web:

    http://sanxenxo.costasur.com/en/weather.html
    http://www.epicure-wines.com/estate-wines/vina%C2%A0ventureira-do-rias-baixas/
    http://www.galiciaguide.com/Sanxenxogalicia.html

    Regarding the statement of taking longer to know people there, my personal experience indicates just the opposite. Sanxenxo is a touristic spot so the large majority of people that live there over the Summer are actually from somewhere else (Madrid and Barcelona in particular). The locals in Galicia are well known for being really humble, easy going people. We used to go on little adventures in rural Galicia and always felt that the local folks were extremely welcoming.

    Frankly, if you enjoy Northern Spain but would like to also take advantage of the beautiful beaches over the Summer, I would strongly encourage you give the “Rias Baixas” a short. You will not be disappointed.

    UPDATE:
    We accepted an offer of 95,000 euros but the sale fell through due to the buyer ultimately not qualifying for the loan as expected.

    New reduced price is now 95,000 euros. Please let me know if you are interested or if you have any questions. Thanks!

    Thanks Mark! I also posted the ad on a few Spanish Real Estate websites so a family contacted us, saw it, and really liked it. Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to post the ad here as well.

    No problem! I am glad to hear that the information I provided was useful. Just out of curiosity, are you planning on visiting/purchasing in that area? Sanxenxo is absolutely amazing! We still have another property there which we are keeping so we can continue spending Summer vacations there. The microclimate is terrific, the food/cuisine is fantastic, and the landscaping is breathtaking. It truly is my favorite region in Spain (by far) to come back to (and I know Spain well since I was born in Madrid).
