Lloret de Mar

From fishing village to capital of fun

Lloret de Mar is a popular resort on the Costa Brava near the town of Blanes. If you are looking for a property for sale in Lloret de Mar, you have the advantage of being only about 70 km away from Barcelona. This city is especially popular with Europe's younger clientel, and in summer the population increases easily from 40.000 to 200.000. This, in turn, offers very good rental options, as long as it is your second home. Lloret de Mar was originally a fishing village and since 1950 international tourists have come here to enjoy the sun, the sea and the beautiful surroundings. Even the affluent citizens of Barcelona like to spend their holidays here and have invested early in tourism to create a top destination. Despite the transformation from a traditional fishing village to a modern tourist town, the old charm has been preserved. One of the characteristics of Lloret de Mar is the Sant Romà church, which is centrally located in the city. Originally built in Gothic style, it has been rebuilt over the years. At the place where the church was built there used to be a building where the coal was stored for transport by ship. This building was called Sa Carbonera and was well-suited for its location near the port. Today the beautiful church is visible everywhere in the city. At the far end of Sa Caleta beach is the silhouette of the medieval castle, D'en Plaja Castle. Appearances are deceptive, and it is not as old as it looks. The industrialist Narcís Plaja built the castle for himself in the 1930s and it was completed in the 1940s after the Spanish Civil War. Even today, the castle is privately owned, and visitors are only allowed to visit the outside of the castle. The beach below the castle is considered one of the quieter beaches in the area. One of Europe's largest water parks, Water World, is located just outside of Lloret de Mar. It offers 140,000 square meters of water slides and water fun, as well as restaurants, picnic areas and a pine forest. So, there is something to do for the whole family. If you are genuinely looking for a property for sale in Floret de Mar, your children will always have something to do and even with the proximity to Barcelona your guest rooms will always be well filled with visitors.
