The pretty fishing village of El Rompido situated on the Western tip of Spain’s Costa de Luz has been thrust into the limelight by Spanish national tourist board that have chosen the area as part of a promotional campaign. Spain’s board is currently using the idyllic picture-postcard beach of El Rompido in Huelva in an international print advertising campaign.

Andrew Benitz, Director of Titan Properties  whose head office is in El Rompido, comments, “Relative anonymity has been both our strength and ironically our downfall over recent years. Whilst Spain’s big hitters – Marbella, Madrid, Barcelona and the like – have garnered the lion’s share of media attention over history, Huelva has gone largely unnoticed. This of course makes our coastline unspoilt, underdeveloped, natural and uncontrived but also means that second home hunters are potentially missing out on one of Spain’s hidden treasures. Hopefully the inclusion of El Rompido’s glorious beach in a global ad campaign will bring some much-deserved attention and education on the area.”

At the western tip of Spain’s Costa de la Luz, El Rompido is essentially a fishing village on the estuary of the Rio Piedras which is protected from the Atlantic by a long spit of land called ‘La Flecha’ – The Arrow. Its presence creates both a safe anchorage for the fishing boats and also a perfect playground for water sports. The fishing boats are as active today as they ever were, sensitively trawling the waters for sumptuous seafood that ends up on the plates of the local restaurants, but the 10km of white sandy beach backed by lofty dunes and pine forests has attracted another crowd – the discerning property investor.

Gradually growing into a vibrant, energetic destination, El Rompido has much to offer for the holidaymaker. The village now has two Alvaro Arana designed 18-hole golf courses, the south inaugurated in 2003 and the north in 2006, and a brace of five star hotels – one managed by the Set Hotel group and the other by El Fuerte. It even has a marina fringed with lavish million euro plus villas complete with private berths and fashionable bars and trendy boutiques, a marina that is one of four planned for the area.

Titan Properties is promoting the newly launched Altos del Rompido. Occupying an elevated position, the 150 apartments and penthouses command impressive south facing views of the Rio Piedras estuary and Atlantic beyond. Built to high standards, the gated community offers a range of on-site facilities from an amazing feature ‘lake pool’ alongside adult’s ‘length pool’ and children’s pool to three paddle tennis courts and a handy bar-cafeteria. The homes themselves are arranged in separate buildings, 15 apartments each, and all have two bedrooms and bathrooms, large terraces of up to 58m² for the penthouses, central heating, direct external and lift access to avoid communal hallways and a parking space a-piece. Fitted kitchens and installed air-conditioning are available as extras.

The village of El Rompido with its pretty square, shops, restaurants, cycle tracks, forest walks and those endless sandy beaches is within walking distance whilst Seville and Faro International Airports are both within an hour’s drive enabling swift direct access to much of northern Europe.

Prices at Altos del Rompido start from 224,000 euros for apartments and 294,000 euros for penthouses and with completion not expected until June 2011 the off-plan stage payment terms and potential for capital appreciation are very attractive.
