Gay Open House: Magnificent modernism, Spanish style

The future’s bright, the future’s Spain. If you swoon over cutting-edge style then we have a selection of gorgeous new homes designed to tickle your modernist fancy.

This month’s LGBTQ Real Estate feature is focused firmly on the architectural hotspot that is Altea on Spain’s sunny Costa Blanca coast. Spain is leading the way in re-defining contemporary living and at prices which would shame many similar developments around the world. 

Our monthly real estate feature sees us team up again with Welshman Rhodri Ellis Owen and Canadian Jameson Farn at LGBTQ Real Estate to bring you some of the finest real estate on the planet. Based in the south of France, but covering properties all over Europe, the guys at LGBTQ Real Estate pride dedicated to supporting LGBTQ+ sellers, buyers and their friends find their perfect property match.

What’s up on the Costa Blanca 

Altea is gorgeous in itself and attracts a very artistic crowd, but being only 10km from Benidorm you are a mere hop, skip and a jump from one of the most gay-friendly mega resorts in Spain. Unlike Sitges, further north, this is a year round gay destination with its many bars and clubs in the Old Town district. The Benidorm Pink Weekend in May and Gay Benidorm Pride in September are two musts for your calendar.
