Townhouses

Townhouses in Spain are often rows of terraced houses, usually in regional communities with a garden and a pool.

As with apartments, these communities have committees of owners, rules and regulations and community fees. These are particularly popular around towns and cities in Spain, but in coastal resorts, townhouses are often built in a style known as ‘Mediterranean village’, and often still white-washed or painted in shades of blue and yellow.

These houses will usually be spacious, and often have three or four floors, including a basement. They will often have a garage and a roof terrace known as a solarium. They generally do not have gardens, but overall construction is of good quality, and there is usually ample storage and some outside space to be utilised, whether a balcony or a terrace.

Usually these townhouses are located on the outskirts of resorts and towns or within urbanisations. The advantages of townhouses include low maintenance and plenty of space, communal gardens and pools, and the joy of community living with fewer neighbours than in an apartment. Disadvantages, however, will be the same as apartments – the possibility of noisy neighbours, poorly maintained communities and crowds during the summer!
