FROM a husband and wife team working out of a wooden shed in the garden to a team of now over 10 people (it’s safe to say it was getting a little crowded), Grapevine Properties has evolved organically over the past 12 years.
Nowadays, you can find us on Calle El Burgo in the pretty white village of Guaro. Keep an eye out for a white door with purple grapes and please feel free to pop in for a coffee.
So what do we love so much about inland Malaga?
We believe that when you purchase a property in inland Málaga you are buying so much more than bricks and mortar, that is just the beginning.
The lifestyle that property will bring to you is incredibly rewarding in so many ways.
For one, the opportunity to get to know and live within an entirely different culture is something most people never get to experience.
The chance to learn a new language and to be in place where you can actually put what you are learning into practice on a daily basis will bring you closer to the Spanish locals.
We have decided to tell you a little about our monthly lifestyle via The Olive Press for just this reason.
We love inland Málaga and pretty much want to shout it from the top of the Sierra de Mijas.
We plan to use this regular section to tell you about local events, lifestyle matters and tips for improving your language skills.
We will also fill you in on the current property market and what us at the Grapevine family have been getting up to recently.
This month for example we had the pleasure of attending the A Place in The Sun Exhibition at Olympia, in London.
Founders Jo and Graham spent the three busy days chatting to people interested in starting a new life here in Spain.
As most of the stands at the exhibition were specializing in coastal properties, we found that sometimes being the odd one out can work in your favour.
Many people commented on how – at last – someone was representing the real Andalucía and we felt so proud to be a part of that.
Now that the sun has finally decided to rear its head we have also been out listing new and exciting properties.
We are lucky enough to have an in-house professional photographer to show off the properties in their very best light.
The dawning of Spring also meant it was time for our annual Grapevine BBQ.
Hosted at the Alpujata de Monda, it was a fantastic day full of great food (a hog roast provided by T & S Butchers in Coín), beautiful weather and even better company.
The year is still young; we have so much planned and can’t wait to share it all with you.
