About Sylvia Felix
I have lived in Spain for 36 years, 28 of them in Marbella, where I was a builder and an interior designer. My mother was Spanish (from Llanes, in Asturias) and I am totally integrated into the Spanish way of life, and am bi-lingual. (Actually, tri-lingual, with French.) I fled the Coast for the campo of Gaucin. The attractions are the breathtaking rural countryside, Straits and Africa, and the natural lifestyle, which includes food locally grown. I have 4 rental "units" here and love the positive feedback from my renters. Everyone is amazed at how beautiful, tranquil, and well-located Gaucin is, and ofc, how extraordinary my properties are - beauty and comfort.
Sylvia Felix purchased this Apartment in 2006
