Irish Times Marbella Feature

Irish Times Marbella Feature

Those who read last Saturday’s Irish Times Marbella Feature online may be scratching their heads. The piece appeared, but the associated properties didn’t materialise. They are included in the hard-copy version of the paper, in the ‘Home & Design’ section, which was published on Saturday May 7th 2016. For those of you who missed out on the properties in the online version.

By the way, those who know the Costa del Sol coastline may well have noticed that the tag line on the article claims that the coast ‘attracts more than five million visitors every year’. This is incorrect. It may well have been taken out of context somewhere along the way, Puerto Banus alone attracts over 5 million visitors every year, the Costa del Sol is host many multiples of this annually.

I’ve included the properties in the piece below.
