Summer villa Cast: ‘It’s an amazing experience, you’ve been waiting for this for a while’
A villa in Spain’s Riviera city of Castellón, where the country’s most famous singer is buried, has been transformed into a permanent home for his relatives.
The estate, in a quiet area in the town of Valladolid, was once home to the singer’s grandmother.
Now, the family have been told by the local council that they must move in by 1 January next year.
The move comes after an 11-year legal battle that ended in November 2015.
The singer was found with his head missing in a pool at the estate, after he had taken a shower.
The singer, known as Casa Castellano, was found in his home after he failed to appear at court on January 1.
He had been staying with his family in a nearby villa, which had been converted into a temporary home for family members.
The singer was given a six-month conditional discharge from prison and a fine of €15,000 (£11,400) for his involvement in the burglary.
The case has sparked an outpouring of support from the public, with a Facebook page set up by his family that has been viewed more than 9 million times.
“We can only express our gratitude to the Spanish community for their support, especially during such a difficult time,” the family wrote.
“Casa Castella has made us very happy and it is the best place in the world to be.”
