I know a lot of people in marbella including Norwegians and Germans and that is not the picture I am getting! The spanish are apparently concerned about the fall in the British market if their media is to be believed. If all the Euro bling bling trash are taking over that would be more reason for the British to sell. Everyone hated them including the spanish.

Not many palm trees left on the coast….they were all killed by the red beetle 🙁

I need to tread carefully, but would like to reply to the point that the Spanish object to ‘Euro bling trash’. When I was down Marbella way, what the Spanish objected to most of all, were the flash Brits, especially the British crooks flooding the place, and they weren’t all bank robbers or drug dealers.

They watched the British investors buying properties by the dozen and selling them on at vast profits, and they really hated those, far more than the usually more discreet Europeans.

And, as Ubeda said, the Brits aren’t back in great numbers, yet, but the rest of Europe? They’re flooding the place, especially the Germans and Scandinavians, they’ve got more money than us Brits.
