1 bed Apartment in Sarande
A fine one bedroom apartment on the 5th floor of the Saranda Vista development, with sea view to Corfu and the Albanian coastline and of the local Castle to the west of the town. This property would make an affordable retirement property or investment option. Situated in the far south of the country on the Adriatic, Saranda town is popular with Albanians for summer holidays and for couples as a honeymoon destination and is accessible from Corfu via a short ferry ride of under 1 hour. Albania is an undiscovered gem for many tourists with miles of quiet beaches and the UNESCO designated ancient Greek site of Butrint accessible on a short bus ride. The beaches of Ksamil are also accessible by local bus or taxi. It is ideal if you want to avoid package tourism locations and are looking for a something a little different to discover
The local culture is Mediterranean and is much better value for money for eating out and other costs than you would find in other popular tourism destinations. Typical restaurant prices are £1 for a basic salad, £2 upwards for delicious pizzas and a glass of wine or local beer from 70p. Pasta, pizza, meat, kebabs and fish are favourite dishes along with some traditional dishes. With an average of 290 sunny days a year it could be your ideal “place in the sun” and represents real affordability when compared with other European countries. The pebble beach and palm tree lined promenade are 5-10 minutes walk away and the town centre and the port are 15 to 20 minutes walk. The beaches are clean and the sea is clean, warm and inviting from late May to October. The local ambience is relaxed and a safe, family friendly resort at any time of day or night
The building was completed in Sept 2010, with a swimming pool and second block are planned by the Irish / Albanian developers. A local agent is appointed to look after the property. There is an elevator and shops are planned for the ground floor level of the development. The build and finish featuring marble stonework is high quality and attractive.
The bedroom has an air-conditioning unit installed in 2011
Unlike other developments the view is protected against high level building which protects the view and unlike other sites being developed, this is a central location yet removed from the main road and traffic. Albania's economy is growing with support from the EU and it's profile is sure to grow as it nears EU accession, programmed for 2014. The apartment has been bought off plan by a British national who now wants to re-invest in the UK
The price reflects a good opportunity for investment and the apartment has been fitted with a stylish furniture package to the value of over 6,000 euros which is in addition to the off-plan price, including kitchen, double bed, wardrobe, drawers, washing machine, low table, sofa bed, dining table and chairs and quality wooden table & two chairs for the balcony.
Offers in the region of £50,000 are invited which represents the opportunity for future rises in property prices and an affordable retirement. If you are interested in contacting the seller to arrange a visit you could be met in Saranda by a the local agent, or the apartment is available for rental at low prices.
