For those looking for a safe investment over the long term, property in Girona has proven itself to be a solid choice even in a volatile market. Investors can also take advantage of current highly favourable mortgage rates both at home and in the Euro zone.

What is more, according to Select Property properties on prestigious golf courses in Spain are proving themselves as a hugely reliable investment owing to the excellent rental and re-sale returns that can be expected. This is due to the extended season a golf course offers, the security and hassle-free, low maintenance style of living. It is crucial, however, to choose a property on a prominent, professionally designed course.

An investment in the one of Spain’s leading golf and real estate developments, Camiral, ticks all the boxes.  Designed by Neil Coles and Angel Gallardo, the course has twice staged the Spanish Open and is currently rated Number 2 in Spain and Number 4 in Europe by Top 100 Golf Courses. Unparalleled facilities and sleek architectural lines will ensure your property remains a highly sought after investment for years to come.

In addition, Camiral Resort is offering buyers a guaranteed exchange rate of €1.25 on all purchases of plots in the resort’s two residential neighbourhoods, La Selva and La Vinya until September 2011.
