"Our initial briefing to Martin was simple - "This is our budget, we want a villa, pool, garden, in the mountains", and here we were two pensioners wanting an easy life!

Living in an apartment gave us a new outlook on life and after several excursions into the hills we changed tack and out went the villa, pool etc."
