About Shane and Bea
We moved to Spain in 2001 and have been renting our villa for self catering holidays since then. We live in the local area and spend our winters at Villa Amapola with our friends and families. Shane and I are married with one married daughter and two adorable grandchildren, all of whom live locally. Shane is Irish and I am English, a Londoner born and bred. Before we moved here, Shane worked in social housing and I was a teacher.
Shane and Bea purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Shane and Bea chose Alcaucin
We fell in love with Villa Amapola whilst on a stroll from the nearby village of Periana. The fabulous countryside situation and breathtaking lake and sea views made it the perfect villa - exactly what we were looking for. Although set apart from the village and totally unobserved by neighbours, the villa is only a few kms from Periana, 15 mins from Lake Vinuela, half an hour to the beach and an hour to Malaga and Granada.
What makes this Villa unique
Some of the unique features of Villa Amapola include its secluded and tranquil location, its gorgeous panoramic views in every direction, the wild countryside setting with amazing butterflies and birdlife and huge old olive and holm oak trees, the huge pool situated "on top of the world" - and the villa itself, spacious and comfortable, with its traditional rustic Andalusian style.
