We live in Cornwall, which is a very special place. However we have found our 'Cornwall in Spain' as the Costa Calida is known because of its agricultural landscape.
We loved the position of our house although it was just a rectangle of tarmac.
It seemed like such a gamble at the time but our builders were brilliant and the house was finished to a very high standard.
Being from Cornwall we had to be within walking distance to the beach which made the position perfect.
We have views of the sea on one side and views of the mountains on the other.
Perfect to spend the days sightseeing or relaxing on the beach and then to return home to a peaceful and pretty location.
