                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: This has been our family villa for fifteen years and we completely renovated it six years ago, updating the pool, kitchen and bathrooms. We are passionate about the garden and believe it is a feature of the property. We live in London and Oxfordshire and visit El Madronal as often as we can. Our favourite time in Spring and Autumn, but Christmas is also enormous fun and the weather can be glorious.

                          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.
