About Samantha

We are a family run business and believe this makes our service and personal relationships with our clients second to none. We pride ourselves on the excellent, professional and efficient service we provide when dealing with property lettings whether they are long term or short term.

Samantha purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Samantha chose Palomares

We purchased our apartment in Palomares as we had visited and fallen in love with the beautiful Spanish coast line and constant sunshine. The complex is friendly and filled with English, Spanish and European residents some who are lucky enough to live there all year round. It is in a quiet Spanish village but only a ten minute drive away from the busier harbour villages if we don't feel like cooking! Due to it's location we often use it as a base to tour the local area often taking picnics and beach towels. I just wish we had more time to visit.

What makes this apartment unique

We always hire a car from the airports, as the highway is so easy to navigate and all the villages are connected by quiet roads so driving on the wrong side isn't an issue.
