A new report from the Spanish appraisal firm Tecnitasa reveals that the cheapest rental properties on the Spanish coast are located in the provinces of Lugo (Galicia), Tarragona (Catalonia), and Alicante (The Valencian Region). In all of these provinces you can rent an apartment looking onto the beach for less than 1,200 Euros a month in August.
For example, renting a front-line apartment of 65 metres squared in San Ciprián, Lugo, costs 812 Euros for the month in August, compared to 5,200 Euros for the same sized apartment in San Sebastian (Basque Country).
More expensive, but still relatively cheap are the provinces of Granada, Málaga, Almería, Valencia, Tenerife and Murcia, where a front-line tourist apartment in August costs less than 2,000 Euros a month on average.
Next comes Asturias, Barcelona, Cádiz, Cantabria, Castellón, Huelva, Las Palmas, Mallorca and Pontevedra, where average monthly rentals on the beach in August cost between 2,000 and 3,000 Euros.
The most expensive provinces for summer holiday rentals are Gerona, Guipúzcoa and Ibiza, where the same 65 metre apartment in San Sebastian, Begur, or Playa d’en Bossa costs more than 4,500 Euros, all according to Tecnitasa.
