Hi guys! 

First post here, all going well I will be a regular!!!  

I am looking for some advice on the area before making a purchase. I am hoping you can help.  

So, myself and  my wife 32 & 30 have been considering a property abroad for quite some time now. Having browsed the current market, Spain, Cyprus & Georgia are the 3 Countries that we are between. With Spain, we seem to be between Camposol & Basilicas.  

Could you give your own opinions on Camposol and if it suits young families? We are currently expecting our first child. We have very little interest in pubs but restaraunts and social/sport would be big on the radar.  Also, we would be looking to try for a house with Solarium and possibly private pool at a stretch. Could you advise on the best section for this? 

Would the residents be neighbourly in general or do people keep to themselves?  When it does come to the likes of the pub, is the crowd rowdy or is it a more relaxed atmosphere? We prefer the more relaxed scenery 

Thanks for reading and helping!!! 

Conor

My wjfe and j are also looking to buy in murcia but as far as camposol is concerned , after talking to several estate agents over there we have been put off totally on buying in camposol. We were told the crime rate is high over there  and  lots of squatters breaking in to empty properties. We were told that this has been brought about by lots of high unemployment due to covid 19. Also been advised that sometimes the sales are taking months to go threw. You have to ask yourself why the properties in camposol are so very cheap and there are so many empty, even ones that have been empty since being built. Also we heard a lot of the properties suffer from subsidence. We are now looking more to los alcazeres. Now the things ive tild you have only come from several estate agents in the region so how accurate the information is i cant say but it was enought to make us look else where

Hi

I have a property on Camposol D which my wife and I bought a year an half ago and having just spent the past month living on Camposol and now returned to the UK, I totally disagree with the Andyschlotter post, you get what you pay for in Camposol and if you buy a property in the way you would at home , surveys, viewings etc then you can see first hand what you are buying.

Don’t be put off by what some people say from gossip mongering, come out to Camposol and make your own judgement.

Hope this is helpful but I’m sure the odd person might disagree with my comments but I could not be happier with our purchase.

Hi, l think Camposol is like marmite, you either love or hate it. We bought on D two years ago and love it here. But we are retired as are most people here so would not really recommend for a young family.

Totally agree with all your commnts, we bought two years ago on B and couldnt be happier, best move we made. Yes you get what you pay for, but that applies all over the world (Does it not?)..... Xxx

Agree with AndyS. Totally agree after having lived on sector D Camposol for 3 years. I am currently buying in Los Alcazares where my friend has lived for many years. I bought on Camposol as an investment property but my property got broken into twice. That was enough for me sadly. The community is great with loads going on if you like to mix with just Brits but definitely like marmite. Best of luck in your search. Basilicas is beautiful as is Puerto de Mazarrón.
