Searching for house rentals or investments, you’ll come across various terms that might be quite difficult to understand, wondering what exactly they represent.
Lots of you might have heard or read the term ‘finca’ before and assumed it’s just another Spanish word for a house.
It’s not! In order to be completely satisfied with your rental or purchase, you have to properly understand what it stands for.
Finca, although commonly translated as ‘farm’, can have many appearances. It can be a small rural property or a large country estate, but the similarity is, that you are closer to nature.
Fincas are very sought after by international buyers and renters, because of the peace and quiet, away from the loud and crowded coastlines. Sometimes it is because of the land surrounding the house, perfect for growing own vegetables and fruit or keep animals.
In tourism the term became extremely popular, used with holiday homes in a rural setting in the Spanish territories.
The house’s history can even look more than 300 years back overcoming the extent development. On the Balearics especially, also the new houses are built in the finca style as it suits the overall environment and gets increasing interest from the visitors.
