Hello, I am Frank and I have owned the property in Spain for over 25 years. I came to visit my parents whom had retired here and decided this is the place for me. My partner Stephanie and I have travelled extensively around the world, and have yet to find anywhere else we would prefer to live. The area has the perfect climate, travel is easy, great areas to explore, the beaches are clean and the main attraction. For us the day trips inland are spectacular and can really add to your holiday experience to discover the real Spain. We would be pleased to pass on our 'local' knowledge to people wishing to visit this beautiful part of Spain. We are associated with local classic car clubs, running and walking clubs and enjoy cycling.
Stephanie purchased this Villa in 1980
Why Stephanie chose Mijas
I have travelled around the world with my work and I still have not found a place where I would prefer to live than in Andalucia. The small strip which is the "Costa Del Sol" is only the tip! a fantastic place to base your self from as during the hot summers you have the cool sea breeze and you have the added advantage of day trips inland exploring the true Spain.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is ideally situated only a short distance from town yet not remote with easy access to the motorways, airport and yet only minutes away from some beautiful villages and country side.
