Although last month we told you all about our latest apartment developments Montecala Gardens and Golf Suites La Sella, this month… there’s even more good news! The end of the year is proving to be really busy and 2023 promises to be even busier. As proof, we have some new villas in store for you at Residencial Jazmines, an area with unique modern villas perfectly adapted to the land and the surrounding countryside, spatially fluid, with natural light and topped off with perfect views at Cumbre del Sol. We’d like to show you some of them!
Quality, simplicity and integration are the hallmarks defining Villa Karma, a home built in contemporary architectural style. A serene and welcoming aesthetic that combines natural stone with ceramic coverings, white façades, and the azure blue of the sea.
The home’s top floor has 3 bedrooms. The middle floor is the living area, bright and airy with a kitchen, sitting room/diner which opens out onto the terrace and pool through glass doors. The ground floor includes a wide porch. The layout is designed to enjoy your home with areas that are both private and family oriented, yet also ideal for open and social living.
Make the most of views of both the sea and inland Costa Blanca Norte: that is one of the best things about Villa Índigo. A home with a garden and private pool built on three floors with 3 bedrooms, all with access to the terrace. In short, you’ll have the luxury of waking up and going out on the terrace to breathe in pure air and begin the day with views of the Mediterranean, with a garden that adapts perfectly to the plot of land and the shape of the house, and of course, the impressive infinity pool that is the villa’s crowning glory.
Set on a plot of 1,300 square metres you’ll find Villa Infinity. This villa has 3 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and parking for 4 cars: 2 in the covered porch area and 2 in the closed garage. The main bedroom is one of the most special rooms in this house, with its en suite bathroom and a large dressing room, and the porch means that you can step out and admire the Mediterranean and breathe in the fresh air. The other two rooms share a terrace, and each has an en suite bathroom, and there is an extra room that can be used as a games room or snug, or as an office for working or studying at home.
The most exclusive feature of this VAPF project is on the ground floor, which is designed for family fun with a gym, bathroom and sauna, and a cinema room with a porch where you can simply chill, relaxing in the tranquillity that proximity of the sea brings.
Its name says it all; experience the Mediterranean sun every single day of the year. Thanks to its clean straight lines, at Villa Amanecer you will never be lacking your essential Vitamin D. The home is built on three floors which are communicated by lift, and it has three bedrooms (all with access to a terrace) and it also includes a basement if you need further space. The outside is made for enjoyment with a large infinity pool which merges with the sea on the horizon, and there is plenty of room for enjoying meals in the open air. You will want to spend all day here and the best thing is, with the climate in the Costa Blanca Norte, you can actually do just that.
Innovations at Lirios Design
Not all the innovations are at Residencial Jazmines, however, Lirios Design also has some new projects lined up for 2023. Villa Iseo is the star of this place. A home in which the light airy rooms mark the style. Here the kitchen is open plan and leads to the dining/sitting room as well as opening out onto the main terrace with its private infinity pool and porch. Not only is it incredibly comfortable and beautiful, the villa is also sustainable, with aerothermal radiant floor heating, a fireplace, photovoltaic system installed, and it is built with specially selected materials that provide quality and warmth to the home.
As you can see, at VAPF we have several villa projects underway. Unique designer homes. Each one has its special features and particular charm, but all of them have one common aim: living, experiencing and enjoying the Mediterranean on the Costa Blanca Norte. Stay tuned for our upcoming blog posts and discover more projects and developments, as well as our activity on Facebookand Instagram.
Market crashes, raising of interest rates by the European Central Bank, inflation reaching maximum rates in July this year (10.8%) … in short, we are currently living in an era marked by inflation which, as a result, means that we should employ caution and be extremely selective when considering any project or investment.
In this final quarter of 2022, and 2023 looks to be similar as well, property has become firmly established as a safe haven investment. Property investment is a good option for anyone who has savings and it is a tool for combating inflation. And this derives from a principle that is as sound as it is well proven, namely, that money loses value if it remains in the bank, by investing in property money appreciates along with the property. In other words, property is a profitable and safe investment: it offers greater revenue than other more risky financial products. In this post we’ll tell you exactly why property has become established as a safe haven investment.
Housing is a basic need that is also elastic, which means that demand is maintained even as prices rise. The Idealista price report is a clear example of this fact, with figures that speak for themselves. According to the report, second hand property in Spain reached an average price in August of 1951 euros per square metre, a 5.26% rise compared to the same month in 2021. If we look at the areas where VAPF is active, the data is even more striking compared to 2021: Altea (2,601€/m2, +15.6%), Benitachell (2,994 €/m2, + 28.7 %), Benissa (2,928 €/m2, + 15.5 %) y Denia (2,276 €/m2, +14.2%).
Rentals: immediate profits
This in another great advantage of investing in property. As the price of housing increases, profits can be made through renting the property. Looking at Idealista’s data once again, in the second quarter of the year, gross profitability of rentals in Spain was 6.36% (an investment is considered to be ideal from 5% upwards). Looking at 2023, the increased cost of mortgages and the effect of inflation on the family economy will mean that some will not be able to buy a home and they will opt to delay their decision to purchase, and rent instead which means that there will be an increased demand for rental property.
Or Long term investment
A property can provide stable income over time. Investing in housing as a safe haven investment is something that is increasingly viable as the geopolitical scenario brings changes that are resulting in negative financial consequences at a global level. Aside from paying off the investment, they can also provide “stable” income and go on to be sold at a later date. In fact, a recent study carried out by the website Idealista revealed that “15.2% of survey respondents in 022 intend to buy a new property as an investment, a trend that has risen by three points in the last six months”.
Financial markets in free fall
The rise in interest rates that we mentioned at the start, problems with supply chains, the rise in prices of raw materials due to the serious geopolitical problem of the war in Ukraine have all led to falls in stock and bond markets: S&P 500 (-14.9%), IBEX 35 (-7.5%), NASDAQ (-22.4%), DAX (-18.3%) and more besides, make this sector of tangible assets increasingly attractive. It is important to highlight the fact that safe haven investments are not just safe because of those price rises but also because the rental market is always a profitable one.
As you can see, property is a lucrative and safe investment, as it provides greater revenue than other financial products and is beneficial in both mid and long term. At VAPFwe have a wide range of villas and apartments on the Costa Blanca Norte, one of the most exclusive and beautiful parts of Spain, where the waters of the Mediterranean and over 300 days of sunshine will be the back drop to your daily life. We suggest you keep an eye on our upcoming blog posts and check out our Facebook and Instagram profiles to keep up with all our news.
One phrase that really sums up our business philosophy is “our clients come first”, so much so that we have a special section of our website dedicated precisely to ensure this aim. This has always been our company’s philosophy. We want to accompany you every step of the way and we know it isn’t always possible to get to the Costa Blanca Norte where we have most of our developments. As a result, for some time now we have been seeking solutions, finding a way to make your purchasing experience as positive and comprehensive as possible, at all times. Our now famous webinars will provide you with detailed information on our new developments and villas. You can also request a visit or a personal digital appointment so that you can explore every cm2 of the villa or apartments that you are interested in, and you can do it all from the comfort of your sofa.
A brief recap

See it for yourself at Villa Tempo
We can tell you all about this villa’s lovely views, the ease of its design and layout and its excellent features and fixtures….. however, we would like you to see it in person. What better way than to experience what you have read with your own eyes? Yes, you can visit one of our villas at this location. Villa Tempo, our showhouse available for viewing at Azure Altea Homes 2, is the perfect example of this development.

From the moment you step inside you will be treated to fabulous sea views and amazing natural light that pervades every corner of the Villa. The clarity of the Mediterranean sky and the sun’s rays flood the entire home with light.
The villa’s middle floor houses the bedrooms, the main bedroom, with private terrace, is also equipped with a large dressing room, and an en suite bathroom, and is isolated in its own wing of the home, providing greater privacy. Here you can spend time gazing at the sea, albeit from the comfort of your own bed or on that terrace. The other two bedrooms in the opposite wing are on the same floor, each with their own bathroom, and they share a further terrace. As a result, from each bedroom you can contemplate the beauty of the countryside that surrounds and envelops you.
The villa’s large terrace is on the same level as the living area. Access through sliding glass doors means that indoors and outdoors can merge to become a single space. The amazing infinity pool has stunning scenic views. The design, efficiency and the fixtures and fittings also apply to the outdoor areas of the villa, with a layout that has been carefully designed to take advantage of the surrounding terrain. The outdoor spaces in these homes are particularly special due to the amazing landscape and the excellent climate on the Mediterranean coast. The location of these villas means that you can view the Benidorm skyline and panoramic vistas of the sea, as well as the mountains of the Costa Blanca Norte.
The villa is fully equipped with top line domestic appliances and the interior design is contemporary yet warm, welcoming and comfortable, so that you can get a feeling of what it would be like to live in one of the villas in the Azure Altea Homes 2 development.
