El9Nou’s image gallery gives a good idea of part of what you’re getting for your €600,000. The number feels a bit close to the sky for something so close to the ground, particularly as the neighbour lives in quite splendid barbary (we once found bits of boiled horse skin and bones spread across the field behind the pigs), but I think Fincas Cos sold another place on the hill behind the tennis club a year or so ago, so they must know what they’re doing.
