Frans & José

Hello

We are José and Frans, Our story begins in 2015.
We were looking for another destination to spend our holidays.  In September we rented a detached house in the mountains between Torrox and Competa, we loved it!!!

Afterwards we flew several times in May and September to Andalusia and rented several houses and enjoyed the amazing views and the natural surroundings.  We already got more jitters and had already said to each other: ‘if we were ever going to do something with our ideas the Axarquía region certainly enjoyed our preference.

In the spring of 2018, we decided to look very carefully for a nice detached house in the vicinity of this beautiful area.  Through an acquaintance we got in touch with Patricia and Geert van Andalucia Real Estate and quickly passed on our wishes.  We also started looking very actively on all housing sites and were able to pass this on to them, so that they could assess the possibilities.

Finally, in September 2018, we met at their office and then went to see some of the houses they had selected for us.  We were going to tour and look at the first object in the village of Iznate.  It was something different than our expectation and this certainly wouldn’t be it, we were aware that we wouldn’t find our dream home at once. We had given ourselves a few years.

Because we had fixated a little too much on the distances and the travel times to airport and the beach, we kept looking up to a certain height in the area, until they pointed out to us that there was, slightly higher, a villa for sale that would be interesting. Also, the road to it was a little longer but much faster. (Region around Lake Viñuela)

We were surprised, the house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a swimming pool exceeded all expectations. The view from the terrace extends far beyond Lake Vinuela with a beautiful mountainous area.  After the visit we agreed that they could negotiate for us, we were kept informed day by day and you guessed it, within a few days the sale was closed… We just couldn’t believe it, but our dream became reality!

We were then excellently advised in the follow-up process and like that we also came, through Andalucia Real Estate, in contact with an excellent lawyer and notary.

In December 2018, the lawyer had sorted out and corrected everything where necessary and we received the key! Now the place has been transformed into Villa Vinuela by lake Vinuela

We are very grateful to the entire super team of Andalucía Real Estate for this guidance!
