depending on what sort of property you want, you should find plenty of options in the province of malaga.
coast= costa del sol
skiing= sierra nevada
A 100km+ drive each way for skiing is not that attractive.
The easiest way is to buy something half way between Motril and Granada
(somwehere around Lanjaron).
But then again, Costa Tropical does not have beaches and Sierra Nevada is a modest ski resort. Probably Gerona has a better combination beaches+ski (of course if one uses winter for skiing not for sun-searching).
