About Marina & John Iannacone

We live in United States (suburbs of Philadelphia) but dream of retiring in Andalusia, Spain.

Marina & John Iannacone purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Marina & John Iannacone chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

This village house has a lot of character but it is also modern and has all the conveniences. And of course the view from the terrace is incredible.

What makes this townhome unique

Town of Sayalonga is surrounded by beautiful mountains and it is close to the shore. It has good inexpensive restaurants, a museum and a swimming pool. Incomparable Competa with all it has to offer is only 15 minutes away.

Car: recommended

Sayalonga has maintained an old world peacefulness and charm where farmers ride their mules and bullocks plough the fields. Yet it is only ten minutes drive to the beaches, fifteen minutes to the nearest marina and golf course and forty-five minutes to Malaga airport.

Very enjoyable stay in Sayalonga

  • 5 of 5

We came to Sayalonga at the end on November to take advantage of a mild weather of Costa Del Sol. The location of the house allows an easy access to the mountains and the shore. Sayalonga is a lovely Spanish town with several restaurants and bars, museum, bank and several groceries stores. The hiking trail starts behind the house and takes you to the next little town Corumbela, the satellite of Sayalonga. One day we drove up the mountains to Competa and hiked from there to Canillas de Albaida. The views were breathtaking. The mountains, avocado trees, olives ready to be harvested, view of the shore in the distance. And Competa itself is very beautiful town that has a lot to offer. We took advantage of their indoor community pool. As we were swimming in it we watched the sun go down over the mountains. Competa is a very international town, people from all over Europe and beyond live there.

The house has all the amenities including washing machine, TV and internet. The view from the terrace was breathtaking. We could see the shore in the distance too.

We were surprised that it was even warmer by the shore in Torre del Mar. We enjoyed walking on a beach there enjoying the view of the sea and the mountains.
