Hi Mark

Interesting your report of 90,000 Brits returning to the UK last year.  Surely this is having a downward effect on property prices in some of the resorts most popular to British people?

Surely it makes more sense for many people, particularly if retired, not to move completely to Spain, but instead spend several months there over the winter, and still enjoy milder weather with the family and friends back in the UK?

In a few weeks I’ll be making another visit to Spain, trying to work out whether it is a good idea to invest there to cater for the holidaymakers and short-term residents.  Somehow I need to work out what will make a property more popular, and likely to be selected by visitors to Spain.

Generally speaking, which seaside resorts would you generally recommend .. and why?  For example, there are real bargains in the northern part of the Costa del Sol at present, but will these rent easily for most of the year?
