Nowadays, the largest proportion of Spaniards live in apartments which are particularly located in urban centers. Major resorts such Magaluf and Benidorm have been smothered with apartment blocks. Here they are specifically built for the holiday market. It is rare to identify a coastline in Spain without a set of apartments. Since the `70s there has been a good market for buyers. The quality and size vary, from spacious multi-story buildings to small apartments.

In cities, it is very rare to find a detached house. If you find one by luck, it is a mansion or a palace belonging to an influential family. Detached houses are commonly found along the coastline. However, these villas are owned by foreigners or rich individuals. Some villas are situated on small individual plots, and they often share communal gardens as well as pools.
