    Great piece, Matthew. Regarding the Torrevieja thing, I always say that, although Algorfa is near to Torrevieja, in real terms, it’s millions of miles away. We’d never heard of it until we came looking for property in 2007, but I’d recommend anybody to come here, if they want to live away from the resorts, but reasonably close to the action if they want it.
