WHAT ABOUT VILLA AND APARTMENT RENTALS IN THE COSTA BRAVA?
If you own a property on the Costa Brava and wish to rent it out to tourists you don’t need a licence to do so (for the time being), though you are expected to declare your rental income and pay tax on it.
Attractive properties near the coast rent well in the summer, though you can only expect 8 to 10 weeks occupancy in the Costa Brava, as the summer season is shorter than, say, the Costa del Sol. A house in Begur, for example, can get close to 100pc occupancy in July and August, plus a another 4 weeks spread over June and September, though it does depend on how attractive the property is to rental clients.
There is a large choice of rental management companies in the area to help you book and manage the lettings, though professionalism is often lacking.
