I read also of sparks of life in the Spanish real estate market, where bargain hunters are scooping up Costa del Sol properties at distressed prices.

That does not describe the situation in the Costa Brava / Girona area, where the market may have slowed but prices never dropped. I'm not making this comment based on reading the 'net but from getting out, looking for property and asking about prices. If anything prices are higher than ten years ago, and building on our mountainside continues unabated.

And as I've said before, it's the French moving their cash down here, buying land, and building villas at a total cost of well over one million euros. Two in our street in the past two years, one purchase and total renovation in our street last year, two new villas on the street above last year. And so on.

What recession ?
