Spain's most affordable cities

Posted by admin 11/03/2022 0 Comment(s)

Life in Spain may be more exciting when you live close to the coast. During our research, we visited four Costa Rican cities to find the one with the greatest charm and the cheapest price tag.



Look toward the Costa del Sol, and you'll find Málaga, a beautiful seaside city that's been awarded the most liveable in Spain several times. Some of the country's best art, music, history, and museums can be found in this cultural hotspot, including the Picasso Museum, which houses some of the artist's finest works.

Málaga is another Spanish city with excellent air service, with aircraft arriving from Europe. The AVE high-speed rail, which connects Madrid and other important Spanish cities, is also convenient for getting to the city.

The cost of living in the Valencia city is lower than in Alicante and Murcia, with flats costing roughly €200,000. To rent, dine out, and shop for groceries, Málaga is less expensive than Madrid and Barcelona.



Alicante, the entrance to Costa Blanca, proudly provides property purchasers with a taste of true Spain, beautiful weather, and reasonable housing.

A historic neighbourhood with whitewashed houses and narrow cobbled alleys, excellent access via the international airport and beaches in the region make Alicante a perfect choice for a vacation.

Compared to London, the cost of living in Alicante is around 37% lower. The cost of renting a home in Alicante is around 19 percent lower than renting a home in Madrid.

In as much as you’re willing to put in a little elbow grease, you can get a city-centre flat for less than €30,000. The price of a villa typically begins at €250,000.



Just at the foothills around the Sierra Nevada, the city of Granada is a visual treat. Together with Seville and Córdoba, this Moorish city makes up a third of Spain's 'Golden Triangle'.

The Alhambra, a magnificent Moorish palace with stunning grounds, is located here, making it a must-see for visitors to Spain.

Walking through the city's streets, you'll see golden-hued arches, a historic Arab district, and tantalising odours of wonderful street cuisine. Granada is a sensory overload.

Dining out in Granada will cost you 24% less money than dining out in Madrid. Consumer prices, including rent, are also a whopping 21% less expensive here than in Madrid. Beautiful flats around €150,000 and elegant villas of around €400,000 are also within your reach.



Murcia is a charming city located only a few miles down the coast of Alicante. Murcia also has an international airport, San Javier, serviced by low-cost airlines like EasyJet, making travel to and from Murcia much more convenient than before.

Murcia is endowed with rich cultural heritage and is home to several architectural wonders. An example of such a work of art is the 300-year-old Cathedral de Santa Maria, which looms above a sunny plaza where you may dine or sip coffee al fresco.

Playa de Poniente in guilas and Percheles in Mazarrón are just a short drive away from the city. Murcia's cost of living is comparable to Alicante's. There are villas under €100,000 available for less than 11% of Madrid's average price per square foot.
