About John McShane
My wife and I, who live in London, bought the villa in the early 2000s and updated it and installed a chlorine-free swimming pool. We are both writers and use the tranquility of the house to work on occasions, if we can force ourselves! But when work is over, we are just minutes from the mountain's excellent restaurants or a short, enchanting drive to the many pleasures of the beach and coastline or the inland delights of this part of Andalucia. It is not the crowded Spain of 'the Costas', but it has more than enough of interest to please all ages. We try and visit the villa as often as possible, but it is never often enough, although our family enjoy making their own visits.
Why John McShane chose Turre
As well as being in the warmest part of mainland Europe, we fell in love with the area. It combines the serenity of an 'away from it all' home whilst having all the necessary shopping and recreational amenities within 10 minutes drive. Another few minutes and you are at the beach. The coves and beaches of the Cabo De Gata national park are nearby within a short drive: marvellous secluded spots that you thought had vanished from Spain forever.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa has a staggering view inland, to the West, and we often dine on the balcony in the evening enjoying the beautiful sunsets. The quiet of the mountain is wonderfully calming, but the house, whilst being away from it all, is by no means remote and access to restaurants and, in the large village of Turre (pop 4,000) at the foot of the mountain about ten minutes' drive away, all amenities are available. The beaches are quiet for Spain and there is a large naturist beach at Vera Playa plus many intimate coves along the coastline for nude or 'textile' bathing.
