Why would someone buy a (second) home in Spain?
When you decide to invest in buying a villa or apartment in a beautiful, sunny foreign location, this can truly enrich your life. Owning your own property in Spain allows you to regularly get away from your permanent home and all your obligations there, which can provide much peace and more time for relaxing activities. Because you go there more and more often, you become more and more familiar with the area, so you get to know the best spots and places, and it becomes a kind of "coming home" every time you are there. You could say pure life enrichment.
