About the Owner
About The Owner
Unique benefits of the property: We first discovered Calella/Llafranc by accident over 9 years ago, and fell in love with the region. We spent so much time there in the first few years that we decided to enquire about purchasing an apartment, but the main specification was that it had to have a sea view, never expecting to find this apartment with its ideal location and magnificent 180 degree sea views. However, the interior required total reconstruction, which took over 7 months to complete, but the 5star finished product was well worth the wait. We spend hours just sitting on the terrace at night, turn on the floor lighting, relax with a glass of wine and watch the sailing boats and cruise ships slowly sail by. We have spent the last 4 years turning the apartment into our second home.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2002
