About Helena Brook-Carter
We live in a little hamlet outside Birmingham. It is beautiful and green here but somewhat lacking in sunshine. Which is why we wanted to buy a villa in Spain.
Helena Brook-Carter purchased this villa in 2004
Why Helena Brook-Carter chose Benitachell
We traveled around Spain looking for a location and picked on this area because it was attractive, next to the coast and conspicuously lacking in high rise buildings.We love popping into the local town of Moraira to have coffee, a bite to eat or just to browse around the shops. There is always something going on here.
We play tennis at the local club and golf at the many golf clubs in the vicinity.
There are three lovely beaches within a ten minute drive and the sea is perfect for swimming.
We have built our own pool in the garden but also enjoy going down to the community pool for a swim and a drink or a snack.
What makes this villa unique
I went over to Spain on a weekend trip and stood on a plot on the top of the cliff looking at the spectacular views of the mountains and the sea.
We bought the plot and ordered our villa and took possession 15 months later. Now, with all the other villas completed it is a very quiet, peaceful urbanisation. In my opinion, one of the best things about our villa is the Naya. We spend most of our time outside and my favourite occupation is sitting on the Naya terrace watching the sun set over the mountains.
