Where: In Andalusia, taking advantage of its excellent weather, low housing costs and favourable political climate, along with a broad network of contacts some founders have there. More specifically: in a quiet and lovely district of Rincón de la Victoria, a small coastal town close to Malaga on the Costa del Sol. There we can enjoy at the same time the luxury of a peaceful environment with both beach and mountains easily accessible by foot as well as the liveliness of Malaga and its international community. Malaga is also connected by highspeed trains and direct flights to many European cities, making it easy to travel to and from Spain and Europe.
