Look at Spanish mortgages to enjoy the rugged charm of Cadaqués
If you are looking at Spanish mortgages for buying a property in Spain, the Cadaqués in the north-east of the country may provide you with the perfect place for a European retreat. Located in Catalonia, the town is only a stone’s throw away from neighbouring France which means that you can enjoy the delights of two countries, rather than just one.
The Cadaqués sit right on the edge of the Cap de Creus Peninsula where the Pyrenees Mountains meet the sea, which gives the shore the dramatic coastline which inspired the surrealist artist Salvador Dali. With pine-covered hills running down to the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, this area of Spain would make the idyllic spot for a holiday home or a weekend getaway.

The area is comprised mainly of small fishing villages spread out across the coastline, many of which boast their own beaches that are often deserted even in the height of summer despite the area’s popularity with tourists during the peak season.
The town of Cadaqués itself has a population of around 2000, but these numbers can swell in the summer with visitors from overseas, Barcelona and the surrounding areas. Despite having all the amenities you would expect from a thriving tourist town, Caadaqués has still managed to retain its archaic charm and beauty. While the town centre can get busy in the thankfully short tourist season, it provides the perfect excuse to explore the rugged surrounding countryside that captured Dali’s imagination.

Further inland from Cadaqués is the Emporda region which is full of splendour and is renowned for being one of the country’s richest regions. This can be seen from the well-tended farms, affluent villages and imposing country mansions that are spread across the serene countryside.
If you are looking to be active while out in Spain, the Pyrenees is only an hour’s drive away and offers hill-walking, mountain-biking and skiing. For those more interested in taking in cultural sights and taking advantage of the shopping opportunities Spain has to offer, Barcelona and Gerona are within close enough reach.
Good quality apartments on the coast start at €300,000 while villas start at around €400,000. With such stunning landscape on your doorstep, a property in Cadaqués can be hard to resist.
