In The Lecrin Valley we are a week into the lockdown and it feels like a lifetime ago that we could leave the house to socialise, go for a run, cycle or climb a mountain, to meet friends for a stroll or a drink and tapas in the local pub and chat about the important and not so important things in life.

In January this year, we sold a great house in Pinos del Valle to Jacqui and Alistair Cornford, a lovely couple who currently live in Saudi Arabia, but who were looking for their own slice of Lecrin Valley heaven to use as a holiday home and rental before retiring to it at some point in the future.
Recently we went back to visit them to see what they’ve done with the place, and it was so lovely to see them so happy and proud of what they’d achieved, and to see their re-energised and renovated home. Being part of a client’s journey and seeing them so settled is why we love our job.
Read our interview with Jacqui and be inspired to find your dream home in the Lecrin Valley… Continue reading “A client’s story – why we love our job…”
