About Timothy Lowden
We have two children and 3 grandchildren who love using the house as it is so well equipped, very peaceful and within easy reach of all the facilities you could possibly want. We fell in love with the view, the sunsets and the garden we have created. We are both very musical and sing with choirs on the coast, go to concerts in Malaga and elsewhere and enjoy the Spanish cooking all the many local restaurants. In the 8 years we have owned the property, local amenities have improved so much.
Timothy Lowden purchased this cottage in 2006
Why Timothy Lowden chose Villanueva de la Concepcion
We knew we needed a stunning view of open farm land with animals grazing (goats), good bird life and within easy reach of excellent shopping facilities. It is so peaceful, sometimes we wonder if we are the only people on the planet! There is mains water, solar heating and a lovely pool. We have retained the 'rustique' style of the house but thoroughly modernised the inside without spoiling it.
What makes this cottage unique
We bought a rundown house but we could immediately see the potential, the Andulucian windows, doors and arches. It stands alone in an acre of land. There are two (related) Spanish families who are very friendly and help with the garden when we are not there who live nearby.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Lovely secluded rural setting, stunning views, great weather and a very enjoyable pool.....just perfect ingredients for our family spring holiday that ended up feeling like a summer holiday!
Easy to enjoy an uneventful day in and around the house, close enough to the places you need to see when you are in Andalucia like Cordoba, Sevilla and close enough to the local shops.
Warning: children will instantly turn into pool-orientated creatures with blocked ears: it did allow us parents to crash out in the lounge set, sipping Spanish wine(courtesy of the owners on arrival) and read a book. BBQ-ed every night, using lemons off the tree in the backyard, fish one evening, meat the next and so on.
Hated to say goodbye to this lifestyle after enjoying it for a full week. Great place......
