When we were looking for a house in southern Spain more than 10 years ago, we created a wish list to make the search a little easier. The house had to radiate a Spanish atmosphere, be comfortable to live in during the extremes of the summer and winter and neither of us wanted it to require too much maintenance throughout the year.
Even more important was to find the best location for us. We do not like mundane environments and high-rise buildings; we were more interested in looking for that typical Spanish feel of white villages, natural surroundings, traditional food, good value locally produced wines and rustic hospitality.
We started our travels in the traditional seaside resort of Nerja which is around an hours drive from Málaga and explored the inland areas of the Axarquia with its mountains white villages and unspoilt countryside. We soon decided our house would be located in this area!
Contact the right people
During our search we found out that, just like buying a house in our home country, it is important to contact the right people who understand the real estate market well and know all the rules and legal aspects here in Andalusia. In this period we got to know Malcolm Moore who took care of the rental management and maintenance of our house when we were back in Holland.
With many lessons learned, we decided to use this knowledge to help other people who also want to buy a house in this beautiful area and started, in cooperation with Malcolm, Second Home Andalusia.
Our aim is to find your ideal dream house from all the properties that are for sale in the Axarquia area of Andalusia. We have no shop window or many houses for sale because, as Property Finders, we believe in personal attention and tailor made offers; therefore we always work on a specific request basis.
All team members have lived and worked for many years in this region of Andalusia, speak the language(s) and have their own specific expertise and background. The perfect combination, we think, to support you in each step required to realize your dream. Therefore we can also arrange all the after sales work because, as we know with the sale complete, it is actually just the beginning.
We cooperate with many local companies and contacts, from reliable local estate agents, legal councillors, administration offices and local builders, to ‘old men’ in villages who know everyone and everything in their town. In this way we can ‘spread the net’ to find, buy and maintain that one perfect property for you.
Second Home Andalusia focuses on the traditional white villages of Canillas de Aceituno, Sedella, Salares and Competa and their inland mountain campo’s including the area around Lake Vinuela, along with coastal towns as Torre del Mar, Torrox and Nerja.
