This is your chance
to get hold of a luxury penthouse on what is arguably the
BEST location between Malaga and Marbella.
This penthouse is
located on Mijas Golf, just ten minutes from Fuengirola,
in a small development called El Limonar (The Lemons) and
overlooks Los Lagos golf course on one side and an old
olive grove on the other.
There are two good
sized bedrooms, two marbled bathrooms, a large lounge,
a fully fitted kitchen, and two very sunny terraces.
There is also a large,
12 square metre, dry, secure storeroom and an allocated
parking space in the underground parking area.
The price is very
competitive at €189,000 and I guarantee that you will
be dealing DIRECTLY with the owner as it is our own apartment,
and has been our wonderful home for the past five years.

is now surplus to our requirements.

Do not make the mistake
of looking at a property simply based on the advertised
price. There are hundreds, if not thousands, or properties
available in Spain at very low prices but you need to ask
yourself the question, 'Would I want to live there?'
We have lived for
the past six years just outside Fuengirola on an urbanisation
called Mijas Golf. Over this period there has been little
or no further development around us, no increase in noise
levels, no increase in traffic, and certainly no increase
in crime or vandalism which remain at very low levels compared
to most parts of Europe.
Like all places since
the start of the current 'credit crunch' there has been
a rise in unemployment in Spain, and particularly on the
Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca where the economy is geared
towards the tourist and second home buyer trade.
There was also a significant
drop in the number of visitors choosing Spain as a holiday
