My point is there are non-financial reasons for owning a second home in Spain.
Yes I agree Mark it’s horses for course in the end and we on this forum write and describe our own individual perspective. I don’t invest money unless there is a calculated prospect of a financial return.
I would disagree that the alternative of staying in good hotels for Spanish holidays is a luxury. The luxury in my view is holiday home ownership purely on cost basis alone.
Personally I don’t understand this ‘home from home’ view point. It’s very strange. Home is where you leave to travel and enjoy something different, not try and create a mirror image which is not really real. Perhaps it’s emotional insecurity. Hotels give you flexibility choice a total change from home which is actually the point is it not. 🙂 However each to their own.
