Costa del Sol is becoming a popular destination for teleworkers

11 March, 2021

Taylor Wimpey Spain, observes that teleworkers consider buying a home in areas with good weather all year round, optimal Wi-Fi connection and green spaces. The number of people working remotely has doubled since the outbreak of the pandemic in Spain.

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many employees to work from home, a practice that was a minority in Spain before the health crisis. According to INE data, in 2019 only 4.8% of workers enjoyed teleworking. Now the situation has been reversed and in 2020, according to a survey carried out by the Bank of Spain, 80% of companies increased teleworking.

The Spanish south coast, can become the world settlement for teleworking, due to its peculiar characteristics. The developer of British origin, Taylor Wimpey Spain, has observed, among its home buyers, that remote workers look for homes in locations with good weather all year round, optimal Wi-Fi connectivity and green and open spaces where they can enjoy nature. Precisely, the Spanish coast meets all these requirements.

Thus, with this data in mind, the Spanish coastal cities are preparing to attract all these teleworkers, both national and international. For example, Malaga and Marbella have launched promotional campaigns to position themselves as a safe and quality destination for those who consider a future in a place with a good climate all year round, work spaces and cultural and technological activities.

Botanic, the development of Taylor Wimpey Spain in La Reserva de Alcuzcuz, Benahavís (Málaga), is one of those unique developments that has all the preferences of teleworkers. It was born under the criteria of sustainability, ecology and bioclimatic architecture. Green spaces play a leading role in the design, respecting the variety of native species and trees in the area. The spacious 3-bedroom apartments with large terraces, facing south, are ready to move in now.

“If Spain proposes it, we can become the ideal settlement for digital nomads”, analyzes Marc Pritchard, director of sales and marketing at Taylor Wimpey Spain. More and more jobs can be done remotely and there are already many cities that have become “true ‘smart cities’ attracting technology jobs. This way of working is the one that should be promoted throughout the Spanish coast ”, adds Pritchard.

Good infrastructures and connections is another of the main characteristics demanded by teleworkers. And that is also brought together by the Spanish coast. Most coastal cities have good road, rail and airport connections. In less than 1 hour foreign teleworkers can be flying back to their home countries.
