Mark Morris and Kathryn Tullos are native Texans who love the climate, the terrain, the food, the wine, and – most of all – the people of the Costa Blanca. In fact, the countryside inland from Torrevieja reminds us very much of the Texas Hill Country, west of Austin, where we have lived the last 30 years. But in Austin we don’t have the Mediterranean at our doorstep.
We love this place and welcome you!
