2017 pictures of the Moors and Christians Parade in Hondón de las Nieves this weekend 15th July. Every year they are surprising the local residents with their outstanding costumes, marches, horses and music. We are liking thes photos by Alarcón Prieto.
For decades they have grown an abundance of agricultural delights such as Grapes, Almonds and Olives (the main economy).
Hondon is surrounded by an expanse of stunning mountain views and traditional arid Spanish countryside. These excellent vistas are a delight in all seasons! Take a walk or drive through the country roads and you will just marvel at the changing light, shadows and picturesque skies.
The Hondon Valley is well known for its mild climate and pleasant summer breezes, which is very welcoming in those hot summer months when temperatures rarely fall below 30 degrees. The region enjoys sunshine in excess of 310 days per year, where the air is very clean and the pace of life slow. Hondon offers a very peaceful and stress free life.
Come take a look at the Valley of the Vines, drink the local wine under the bluest of skies and feel the warmth of the Spanish sun on your face … and you’re hooked! We were! We love it!

Spanish Tourism Minister Alvaro Nadal told a news conference to present tourism figures for 2016 that the number of arrivals last year was up by 9.9 percent over the 68.1 million foreign visitors who flocked to the country in 2015. It was the fourth consecutive year of record numbers of arrivals.
“There was no Brexit effect in 2016, it did not affect British tourism in our country,” said Nadal, before adding this trend should continue this year.
Tourism represents some 11 percent of Spain’s gross domestic produc.
“Already advance reservations as well as requests for landing slots at Spanish airports are going very well which confirms that the tendency for British tourism remains the same.”
Each foreign tourist to Spain spent an average of €1,023 ($1,078), a 3.75 percent increase over the 2015 figure. They spent a total of €77 billion in the country in 2016, an 8.3 percent increase over the previous year.
So Brits LOVE IT! We at Hondon Villas can’t predict the future but we do echo that 2016 and so far 2017 would suggest Brits (Dutch and Belgiums) are still keen to buy property in Spain. We are as busy as ever and had the confidence to open bigger premised earlier this year. We are cautiously optimistic of Spanish Real Estate, despite prices being fairly static to showing slight growth.

So that Manaña feeling is very real … if you can’t beat them, join them eh?
LOL! A recent story (abridged) … Buyer: “Oh no I’d never buy a DVD player from a random bloke in the pub. Too rissssssky.”
Agent: “Very wise! Oh so how did you hear about the house you want to buy here?”
Buyer: “Oh the barmaid in that bar showed me it, she was very nice! She says I don’t need a to worry about black money or the paperwork. And I don’t need an estate agent!”
Thought bubble! So the biggest purchase of your life, 1/4 of million+ €€€ and you think the … well phhfff… we wish you luck with that one!
We know that a mechanic can fix a car. We know the electrician will fit new lights. We know a butcher will cut a nice fillet of beef. We know the barmaid will serve ice cold drinks on hot days and the chef will cook that beef…
But a good real estate agent will sit next to you and hold your hand through the long property purchase maze, they will value, photo and video your property, negotiate the deal, sort the deposits and contracts, take you to get the right paperwork like NIEs, find me a good lawyer, open a bank account with you, know the area, the trade people, help you with transport and the legal notary and always help you after the sale.
Do we also know the estate agent has lots of costs in running an office, employing staff, equipment, computers, websites, tax, insurance, advertising, networking, car / petrol, telephone bills, electric, water, heating, fixtures, fittings and so on… ?
We know the local agent will be part of the community, give to local charities, pay the rates, keep abreast of local planning and events, help the other businesses, create and distribute wealth, introduce people as friends, eat & drink in the local catering establishments and so on.
So a good estate agent is more than just sales person in our opinion. What do you think?
