Historic background: A famous watch tower called "Torre de Calahonda" is located in the center of the property. Built 1575, it served as part of a defense chain of watch towers protecting against potential pirate attacks. The line of watch towers stretches from the Andalusian coast all the way to Cadiz. Surrounded by crew houses at that time, the towers were well-supplied with necessities and were well looked after by the crews residing close to the towers. Therefore some of the towers still stand to this very day. This tower, being a listed building, gives a certain flair, to the property initially built as a holiday home by the Spanish nobleman Enrique de la Mata, minister and president of the International Red Cross (1981 -87). The Spanish king Juan Carlos attended to a party, thrown in his honor by his minister, at this very property. The king made a remarkable entry by yacht through the sea, anchoring close to the property to then be rowed ashore in a smaller boat.
