Inspirational apartments with a sea view

A lot of people have asked, why a castle? Why not just buy some amazing, modern apartments. Castles are old and dirty and uncomfortable… wouldn’t writers rather be in an air-conditioned apartment?

It’s a reasonable question – especially when I look at apartments like this one in Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France.

It’s breathtaking – and over $862,000 for a one bedroom.

But this equally amazing apartment in Marbella, Costa Del Sol Spain is only $250,000 for a 2 bedroom apartment.

I admit, I love having a view of the sea – ever since living in Malta (right on the Mediterranean) being able to see the horizon over the water fills me with peace and inspiration. And I could buy 10 of these for the same price as I’m prepared to pay for the castle (with two bedrooms, authors could share apartments).

It’s oh so tempting.

But I want something with history. And I want something you can approach from a long driveway and say “Holy Shit” as you get closer. And I want something with centuries of history, something enduring and classical. I want all the land and grounds that will come with a castle, so we can go for long walks and have acres of solitude and privacy (there’s nothing worse when trying to write than construction noise of a neighbor’s loud music playing).
