Many people believe that living on an island surrounded by sea is the best life possible. Many dream of buying a house or apartment on an island when they are older, and spend their days tanning on the beach, swimming, surfing, fishing, or just staring at the ocean. Obviously, such lifestyle seems particularly attractive, so there is little surprise that those who can afford it start looking for an island to buy real estate.
Fuerteventura is one of such islands people dream of. It has white sandy beaches, beautiful cliffs, and various picturesque landscapes. The climate on the island is mild and warm. Fuerteventura is situated 100 km from North Africa, so even in winter, it is not cold there. Due to rich flora and fauna, Fuerteventura became the bio-reserve of UNESCO and its nature is protected by the law.
Warm, but windy weather creates perfect conditions for water sports like surfing and windsurfing. So there are many tourists all year round enjoying active pastime. In general, the place is very popular with tourists from different countries coming to spend their vacations on Fuerteventura.
If you consider buying an apartment or Fuerteventura houses for sale, you can check out the locations and prices. In general, the prices are high, because the place is popular with tourists and owners of real estate do not sell their property cheap to anyone. Any owner of the property can make decent money eventually using their property for the tourism industry. Therefore, do not be surprised about the price and lack of numerous variants for sale.
The situation with houses is a bit better than with apartments because local authorities try to preserve the unique architecture and atmosphere of the island and allow to build houses, but not a lot of multistorey buildings. If you really want an apartment, perhaps you should look for those on the biggest among the Canary Islands, Tenerife. There, you will have more chances of finding an apartment.
In case you lack money, or you actually want a bigger house than you have found among options on Fuerteventura, you can try looking for variants on smaller islands. There are enough of them to choose. You can find a less popular place and therefore the real estate will not be so expensive there.
Overall, it is totally possible and affordable to buy a house or apartment on one of the islands in the Atlantic Ocean and lead the lifestyle you are dreaming of.
