Patrick & Mireille

Hello, we’re Mireille and Patrick and we live in Zemst.

All our lives we have held the dream of having our own place ‘somewhere’ in the south of Europe.  We browsed the internet for several years, looking for a nice place to stay.  Destinations such as Portugal, France, Greece and the like have been discussed. Until we arrived at the Hotel La Viñuela in 2012, due to an unforeseen circumstance.  This was an area we immediately fell in love with. The mountains, the lakes, the sea: all within reach.

Once back home we started looking again, but more focused, on the internet for Immo offices in Axarquia.  One address immediately caught our eye. Andalucia Real Estate! A Belgian couple and one of the owners had worked as an architect for several years in Mechelen (our home base).  In 2014 we went back to Viñuela in October. This with the intention of getting to know the region a little better.  On a drizzly day we contacted Andalucia Real Estate asking if we could visit in order to obtain more general information.  An hour later we already sat with Patricia and Geert around the table.  We made an immediate connection. The next day we went to see some houses with them.

Our search took about 2 years and eventually we ended up in Cómpeta where we found a cute holiday home.  And oh, how lucky we were when the lawyer called us and said that for this house all the paperwork was in order.  It has been a long and bizarre quest with lots of beautiful moments but also with moments of disillusionment when it turns out that sometimes the paperwork doesn’t work out.  However, we have always continued to believe in it with the idea ‘perseverance pays off’.

In the meantime, we are a few years away and we have already experienced a lot of nice holiday moments in our house in Cómpeta.

We also thank Patricia and Geert for this. They have continued to support us and continued to help us in our search for our dream home, even though we have had to visit a whole series of houses with them.

Thanks for everything,

Mireille en Patrick
