Pedreguer, a traditional Spanish village near the Mediterranean coast
Pedreguer is a prosperous agricultural and commercial village, as well as an idyllic enclave for disconnection and healthy living. It is surrounded by abundant farmland where fruits and vegetables are grown and then marketed in stores offering great variety and quality.
In its day, Pedreguer was the Spanish capital of leather handbag manufacturing, but still to this day it continues to manufacture handbags, hats and leather goods. The town is increasingly popular with young families and Spaniards looking for affordable housing in good environmental conditions. At SUNSHINE VILLAS, for example, you can find a selection of apartments, villas and fincas, both second-hand and newly built, very interesting to start from scratch and build a prosperous life.

Its Sunday street market brings a lot of life to the town and creates a very pleasant atmosphere. Despite the affluence of northern Europeans coming to live in the area, the town still has a very Spanish character with traditions that are never lost such as tapas and terrace life.
