About Paul Gupta

I bought this apartment jointly with our daughter Dr P Gupta who was born in UK and qualified as a doctor from University College London. My wife and I live in Essex while our daughter lives in Surrey. She is married and have 2 children.
Paul Gupta purchased this apartment in 2005
Why Paul Gupta chose Los Alcazares
We bought our 1st Spanish apartment in Villamartin, Alicante in 2003 after my retirement from my business. But, it was a wrong choice of the area as the sea was not within the walking distance nor there was any bus service. Luckily we sold that property within 2 months of purchase and returned to UK.
We then returned to Spain again and bought this property. We fell in love with the area of Mar Menor or Minor Sea. The several kilometre long prominade is ideal for walks and the beach is excellent and children friendly.
We use this apartment several times a year. The 5 supermarkets, several restaurants and banks etc fulfill all our needs.
Our penthouse apartment has a patio that has sun all day along, a balcony to cool and a large roof terrace/solarium with sunbeds. We have a shower and a pull over shade on the roof terrace should it get too hot.
What makes this apartment unique
The 3 terraces (sunny patio, the cooling balcony and the roof solarium) plus the beautiful layout of the rooms and 2 WCs was enough to tempt us in buying this apartment.
But, ofcourse, there are also 2 shared community swimming pools within the secure gated complex. And, nearby there are golf courses for the enthusiast golfers.
The historic city of Cartagena is only 15 minutes drive away. But, when we are in mood to just relax we do not need to hire a car at all. Everything in within walking distance.
