                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      Why the Owner Chose Costa del Sol - Malaga:
                      We were staying with friends nearby who knew this villa was for sale and we fell in love with it. It has a lovely atmosphere and was designed and built by a Spanish family who lived here all year round. They understood how to build to take best advantage of the sun and the views and we think they found an amazing plot, one of the best on the coast.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      The views all around and from every window make this a beautiful place to stay any time of year. We never tire of looking at the mountains and enjoying the peace and beauty of the surroundings.
