Good reasons to buy a property in Laroque-des-Albères

13 December 2021
Located at the gates of Spain, the town of Laroque-des-Albères retains the authentic charm of a Pyrenean village. It attracts from afar buyers looking for a pied-à-terre in the heart of a sunny nature, close to the Côte Vermeille. What are the good reasons for making a real estate purchase in Laroque-des-Albères?

Laroque-des-Albères, between sea and mountains

The real estate market of Laroque-des-Albères remains relatively confidential: in fact, the commune has only recently exceeded the threshold of 2,000 inhabitants per year and has therefore managed to preserve the very special atmosphere of a mountain village. Lovers of wild nature are numerous to walk the paths of the Albères massif, which lead directly to the Spanish border with which Laroque borders. Likewise, the coastal seaside resorts remain very close: allow less than fifteen minutes to reach Argelès-sur-Mer from the center of the village. These particularities have made Laroque-des-Albères a privileged prospecting sector for many buyers looking for a charming second home, at the gateway to the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean.

Box: Almost a third of second homes

Second homes represent 32.2% of the building stock of Laroque-des-Albères in 2020. It is therefore a considerable proportion, but which remains less important than on the coast. The local population remains in the majority and breathes a pleasant life into the town center.

A nice variety of goods available for purchase

The center of the village of Laroque-des-Albères is renowned for its charm: the white facades and ocher roofs of its traditional houses are gathered under the almost thousand-year-old silhouette of the tower of the old feudal castle. Below, interested buyers can also find villas and pavilions with a more modern style and surrounded by greenery. Whatever your preferences as a buyer, a purchase made on the Laroque-des-Albères real estate market will be more accessible than an equivalent property located on the Côte Vermeille or elsewhere on the Mediterranean coast.

Box: The Albères cheaper than the coast?
