Northern Costa Almeria, Spain Ben Hillman

Former detectives Penny and Jon still work for the police, but now with retirement on the horizon they can’t wait to buy a holiday home in Spain they can escape to for the winter. They’ve decided Northern Costa Almeria is the perfect place, and have asked Ben Hillman to find them their dream property for a budget of £100,000, which must have a communal pool, and be close to both the beach and a golf course. After following up his leads, house hunting sleuth Ben has lined-up five fantastic options that he thinks matches the description, but will he end up collaring a sale?
