Don’t take our word for it…here’s what our clients have to say about us!
Roger & Sylvia Campbell, Buckinghamshire
Purchased in Guardamar Costa Blanca Spain
The service we received from Salamanca was way beyond what we had expected. The staff were always available, never pushy but there when we had questions which needed answering. We were made to feel comfortable and never pressured in any way. Roger & Sylvia Campbell The choice and variety of properties and locations that we were shown was refreshing The hospitality afforded to us during our visit was first class. Salamanca have been there for us since we purchased when we have needed their services or if we have requested their help. When problems did occur which is inevitable with a new property purchase Salamanca were ready and available to help and deal with the issue or if they were unable to directly help they were able to point us in the right direction.
Roger Campbell, who operates his own business Westbury Carpets & Floor Coverings offers his clients a range of services from which they can choose the specific ones appropriate to their needs. Roger said he was delighted to experience firsthand Salamanca running their business in a very similar way to his own and one which has been successfully trading for over 30 years.
We would not hesitate to recommend others to Salamanca Villas in light of our own experience and the value we feel we have achieved.
Sylvia Campbell added “That with the service is given by Salamanca and the apartment we purchased, our enjoyment in the Spanish lifestyle has surpassed all our expectations.
We bought with the intention of wanting a family home for all of us to use but we could never have imagined how much we ourselves have loved the whole way of life out here in Spain.
It’s difficult to describe until you have experienced it for yourself. It was very important to us that Salamanca made the whole experience of buying abroad so easy. Unfortunately, you hear so many horror stories yet we were guided through the whole process both professionally and personally. We feel we have made new and valuable friends in the Salamanca Team and long may this continue.
Mrs Linda Dillon, Yorkshire
Purchased in Punta Prima, Torrevieja Costa Blanca Spain
Our initial experience in traveling out to Spain to view properties were very satisfying.
The visit was well planned and organized. We were not only able to view properties and their locations but we were also shown the surrounding areas and facilities.
We were able to more fully appreciate the available amenities and infrastructure.
The format of the visit included a preliminary meeting with a local English speaking firm of Solicitors which proved very beneficial. We were advised but most importantly we were able to understand the necessary legal aspects and our responsibilities
involved in the purchase of a property in Spain. This made our task much easier. We then had the confidence to progress with our proposed property purchase. The Salamanca Agents in Spain were on hand throughout the whole purchasing procedure. This was very reassuring and comforting to be able to ask questions. and to be able to get confirmation on any necessary steps.
When it came to completion Salamanca helped with the logistics in terms of transport to and from the solicitors and the developers We were taken to the Notary when we finally came to sign and take legal ownership of our property. The After-Sales service provided by Salamanca has been superb This is paramount in my opinion not only concerning the property purchase itself but being able to obtain help and advice or direction in all aspects of the Spanish way of life. Salamanca has always been there when we needed them.
I would not hesitate to recommend Salamanca Villas and would definitely purchase another property with their services… this is when I win the lottery of course!
For your information, Mrs. Dillon’s beachfront apartment at Punta Prima is available to Rent.
Marjorie & Harry Oates, Lancashire
Purchased in Hondon de las Nieves, Alicante, Costa Blanca, Spain
We contacted Salamanca Villas after seeing
their advertisement in a magazine for the type of property we were looking for. They were immediately very helpful.
Even though the property turned out to be Off Plan as we had originally wanted to find something “Key Ready” (reason being we had suffered a severe disappointment from a previous Off plan purchase) Salamanca engaged us with their Agent in Spain who could not do enough for us to help find our home in the sun.
The care and attention to our requirements without exceeding our budget convinced us we should go with them. We chose to move abroad to Spain in our retirement for a more relaxed way of life away from the poor English weather and of course a healthier lifestyle. We both suffer from arthritis problems and we felt the warmer and less damp climate would be of benefit to us both.
The advantages of living in Spain are of course as previously stated as well as our pensions stretching further the cost of living is a whole lot less. The only disadvantage is we don’t see our children and grandchildren on a weekly basis as we had been used to but as time goes by they will also be able to enjoy our home in Spain as much as we do and we will be able to spend more quality time together. Dealing with Salamanca Villas we have not encountered any problems moving abroad. They introduced us to the Legal and the Banking process in a professional manner and made suggestions and recommendations as to which Solicitors and Banks to use without us being pressured.
We are doing our best to integrate into the local culture by learning the language, shopping in the local markets and dining out at the many excellent local Spanish restaurants We can’t claim that it is easy to communicate for every eventuality but it can be fun as most Spanish people are very helpful.
The main difference is getting used to the way we shop as most shops here in Spain are closed from 2.00pm until 4.00pm. We would advise anyone likeminded to give Spain a try as long as they deal with specialized and experienced companies like Salamanca Villas to obtain the best advice. Using Salamanca we found our Key Ready property in 4 days and completed the purchase 6 weeks later. We will now live permanently in the Costa Blanca from April 2007.
We have no hesitation in recommending Salamanca to others and are happy to help with any questions if you need to talk to someone who has already purchased and who is enjoying their new life in sunny Spain.

MR & MRS C from HULL
The Salamanca Agents in Spain were very knowledgeable about the area as well as other useful information such as Healthcare & Medical Treatment. We would have no hesitation in recommending people to go on one of your Viewing Trips.
MR & MRS B from YOKSHIRE
The Solicitors explained in words which we understood and we were provided with lots of details which were explained verbally to us and then able to take away for future reference. This was a good practice because we could refer back to the information at
a later date. We found the discussion was very good as it was very important to understand the costs involved in the purchase.
MR & MRS R from BEVERLEY
We were impressed with everything and would not hesitate to recommend Salamanca Villas. We were looked after by the Agents from day one of our arrival in the best possible way and were shown around all that we wanted to see. The hotel was excellent in every way, location, food, etc. The bedroom was comfortable with a fantastic view out to over the beach to the Mediterranean Sea. Nothing was too much for the Salamanca Agents they saw to all our needs and we found them so very friendly, considerate, and extremely knowledgeable.
MR & MRS L from ESSEX
The Salamanca Agents were a delight to be with, they were very helpful in trying to find a property and a location which suited our needs.
MR & MRS P from ROCHDALE
We were very pleased with all the arrangements, advice and support received. We have nothing but praise for the high caliber of knowledge, experience, professionalism,courtesy and most importantly the pleasant manner of the Salamanca Agents.
MR & MRS B from YORKSHIRE
The properties we visited were in our price range and there was no hard sell attitude from the Salamanca Agent. The visit was well planned and very worthwhile. We will recommend Salamanca Villas to anyone who is looking to buy in Spain.
MRS L from SUSSEX
The Salamanca Agents were very helpful especially with their knowledge of the area, the builders, etc. We found this to have been a bonus especially being introduced to local English speaking Solicitors who were able to put our minds at rest and provide answers and assurances to key questions that we had. Our visit to Spain has helped us focus our minds on exactly what we require for our future life in Spain.
MR & MRS B from YORKSHIRE
One piece of advice is to be prepared for a long wait at the Alicante Police Station where you have to obtain your Spanish NIE Number. It can be a long wait and could take up to half a day. But it has to be done because you are required by Spanish Law to have an NIE Number in order to legally complete on your property purchase.
