British newspaper, the Daily Mail, recently featured Albania as the perfect destination in which to own a property. Many things make this destination very attractive, but the main attractions remain the Mediterranean weather of 300 sunny days per year, beautiful white and black beaches, splendid natural sceneries, the lowest property prices on the European continent and of course, Albanian hospitality which is second to none.
For most Brits Albania is known via the famous actor of Norman Wisdom or perhaps through rare football matches played with England. However, things are about to change, as Albania is a tourist destination in the making. During 2010, Albania has seen 3.5 million tourists visit the country, which by any standards is a record-breaking number. As a result more Brits are visiting Albania than ever before – of course during the summer time. The fascinating thing is that once you visit Albania and see for yourself what the country is all about and its potential – you want to see more and more of it.
What better way to do this than to buy your own chouse or seaside apartment in Albania.
What else is there to do once you own your property in Albania ?
Albania has a rich history, and over 2000 archaeological sites to be visited. Albania has three important UNESCO protected sites that are visited by many.
- Gjirokastra is one of them, known as the stone city, built on top of the mountains with fascinating scenery and the dominant castle that overlooks the city.
- Berat, known as the city of 1000 windows. Also built on the side of the mountains, the characteristic buildings are the dominant feature of the city.
- Butrinti, is an ancient site where Caesar retired after the successful battles. The sites oversee the beautiful island of Corfu.
And the list goes on and on.
As Albania is becoming more and more popular with Brits, so is property buying. Already many Brits have spotted the opportunity that Albania has as an emerging tourism destination and as such many of them own properties on the Albanian coastline that stretches for over 450 kilometres.
This trend is increasing as we have seen in the last few years. With more and more quality seaside developments, Albania is becoming a destination that foreign investors in Europe and elsewhere are flocking to buy.
Sun, beaches, Adriatic and the Ionian sea – Albania has it all. One can reach Albania in no time. As Albania is located in the middle of Europe, Tirana is reached in less than 2 hours 45 minutes with daily fights, flyng from Gatwick or Stansted airport.
It is true that Albania is the last European frontier for property investment and development, so whilst this is the case serious investors must take the opportunity now.
