Europe? Not Europe?
This country, located in the Pyrenees, is landlocked in the European Union as it borders France and Spain. It is not, however, a member of the EU, although it uses the euro as its currency.
Andorra is the 6th smallest country in Europe with 468 km².
The strong growth in tourism over the last 30 years has resulted in the current state of the housing stock.
Due to the small size of the country, Andorra’s real estate is mainly collective and of recent construction.
