Barcelona offers relatively few homes and villas. A luxury house or villa may be purchased in the upper city, e.g., in Pedralbes, Les Corts and Sarrià-Sant Gervasi. Houses for sale in Barcelona of at least 100 sq.m sell for €4,000-8,000 per sq.m. The well-developed infrastructure of the areas with international schools and various shops and restaurants is comfortable for families.
Foreign buyers often purchase villas in Barcelona suburbs, such as Alelja, Gavà and Castelldefels. Commuters enjoy a mix of the slow-paced coastal life and big city opportunities.
The prices for a home in Barcelona start at €4,000 per sq.m. A house of 1,000 sq.m with a garden and pool in a private security area within a 15-minute drive from downtown Barcelona and Barcelona’s airport El Prat costs up to €10,000,000.
