Nerja Malaga Spain
Studio | 1 bath | 28 m2 (301 sq ft)
Our opinion: The listing agent is clearly a person of few words, so we don't have a very elaborate description to go off of here. However, we feel the views speak for themselves! Categorized as a studio, a cute alcove houses room enough for a double bed to separate living from sleeping. A small yet efficient kitchen flanks the entrance hall to again maximize space. From the photos, we note there is a communal pool. No word on HOA/Condo fees. If you're looking for an investment to rent out as a vacation home, a quick AIRDNA search shows Nerja with an average rate of €103/night and 57% occupancy.
Nerja is a resort town along southern Spain's Costa del Sol. Its seafront promenade, Balcón de Europa, tops a promontory with views of the Mediterranean and surrounding mountains. Below it lie sandy beaches and cliffside coves. Cueva de Nerja, a nearby cavern with unusual stalactites and stalagmites, hosts popular summertime concerts. (Source: Google)
Positioned at the eastern tip of the Costa del Sol, Nerja boasts nearly 10 miles of powdery beaches featuring activities like water skiing, scuba diving and sailing. Although tourist-oriented, it hasn't been overtaken by high-rises, and its huge promenade delivers panoramic Mediterranean views. (Source: TripAdvisor)

Alvor Algarve Portugal
Studio | 1 bath | 35 m2 (377 sq ft)
Our opinion: We'll start with location, location, location! The Algarve region of Portugal is SUPER HOT and we've seen prices skyrocket in the area over the past couple of years due to so many foreign buyers investing. When we spied this little dandy with magnificent sea views, we had to include it as a feature.
Alvor is a seaside resort and fishing village in the Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region. The 16th-century Igreja Matriz church rises above the old town, while 3 Islamic shrines (morabitos) evoke the area’s Moorish heritage. Cobbled lanes lead down to the paved riverfront, which is lined with bars and seafood restaurants. The wetlands of the Alvor river estuary provide a habitat for resident and migratory birds.

From the listing:
When people think about owning property in the Algarve, many visualise beautiful views over white sands and the turquoise ocean - a little bit like the views from this super studio apartment. Located in Alvor, home to many fantastic beaches, this studio apartment's X-factor is its stunning ocean views.
Just a two-minute stroll down to the beach, this studio is located in a private condominium close to all amenities as well as to the town centre of Alvor. It offers you a spacious open plan living sleeping area and can sleep up to four people. The fitted wardrobes are large and have full length mirrored doors. The fully fitted and equipped kitchen area has all you need as well as a breakfast bar. The family bathroom is a good size and comes complete with a bath and shower.
However, it is the balcony with its stunning views and space for table and chairs where we think you will spend most of your time. Enjoy your morning coffee, lunchtime snack or evening drinks with the sounds of the waves in the distance - pure bliss.
Sold furnished the studio has air conditioning and as the owner, you have access to the communal pool, games area, garden and sauna.

San Nicola Arcella, Cosenza Italy
1 bed | 2 baths | 99 m2 (1066 sq ft)
Our opinion: Stunning views from the terrace are what make this one a STEAL. There's a decent amount of space to work with inside. A large bedroom that could use some new furniture to bring it into the 2000's, but it's large and could accommodate another single bed or an office nook. There are 2 bathrooms, which is SO RARE in Italy (especially when there's only one bedroom). And how about that wine barrel bathtub?
From the listing:
San Nicola Arcella, on a sunny hill, in a quiet and elegant setting, on a gated and very well-maintained complex, we offer for sale a lovely apartment featuring a spacious terrace with awnings and outdoor kitchen, a living space with kitchen, two bathrooms, a double bedroom and a walk-in closet.
