On this page we take a look at which famous people have bought homes in Spain.
Perhaps these celebrities have even moved to Spain on a permanent basis.
We write this piece simply out of curiosity. I was once walking along the promenade in Javea on the Costa Blanca when I saw someone having a drink who I thought looked like Terry Venables.
I thought nothing more of it until I found out he really did have a second-home in the town – so it really was him!
Famous People on the Costa Blanca
The area I know best is the Costa Blanca and I know these people either live or have homes in this region.
That grey haired person who just walked past you could once have been a wild and crazed rock star in the 60’s – who knows?
Sam Allardyce former manager of Bolton, Blackburn, West Ham United, Sunderland and now ex-England manager (!) has a house in Moraira.
Chris Eubank has a villa in Moraira.
David Lloyd (Bumble) ex-England cricketer and now cricket commentator has a house on La Finca Golf as does Welsh golfer Bradley Dredge.
Terry Venables has a home in Javea in the northern Costa Blanca. This is not so surprising since the former England manager (a good one!) used to manage Barcelona.
Nigella Lawson famous for her cooking shows and daughter of former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Nigel Lawson has a home in Javea.
Michael Douglas famous film star, famous wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) has a home in Javea.
Carl Fogarty, four-time world superbike champion has a home in Javea.
Terry Wogan has a villa in Villamartin.
Honor Blackman has a villa in Moraira
Can you add to this list? Any sightings of the rich and famous?
There must be lots of celebrities and famous people with homes on the Costa del Sol, especially near Marbella.
I believe Antonio Banderas and wife Melanie Griffiths live in Estepona.
