Hi! I am Brigitte Castaño and my profession is being a real estate agent for more than 20 years now, so you can imagine how many houses, condos and apartments I see every day… When I got this apartment for sale I started marketing it and showing it to clients and after a few visits… I realized that I was myself in love with it!
Each visit the view was different, the sea was as beautiful as when it was calm than when it was stormy, as beautiful as sailing boats or cargo boats were passing in front of the balcony or a regatta of little “Optimists” and I would have stayed hours in the terrace contemplating these stunning views… It is not only the sea that makes it attractive but also this lively Promenade where it is situated and you have everything nearby in a walking distance: beaches, restaurants, shops, supermaket and so on… And apart from the views, I fell in love with its spacious and sunny terrace where you can have breakfast or lunch.
So I said to my husband “Why don´t we buy it for our old days…?” And we did it! And while these “old days” are coming we decided to rent it out to share with other people the privilege of living there… So, I really hope that you will enjoy your stay and love it as much as I do!
