    Hello All,
    We have a client looking to do a one day film shoot in southern europe. We are looking for a rooftop swimming pool in an urban areal to shoot in early-mid February. We need sun and with any luck a bit of warmth. Please let me know if anyone has a lead on this location. Thank you! Cat

    Dear Cat,

    In Andalucia we have several options- Sevilla, Malaga etc, Malaga being the best due to counting on local crew and suppliers and not having to pay any hotels/per diems to crew and that way spend your money on screen value. Contact me for more details, as we would be pleased to help you out.

    All the best

    Hi Cat,
    Athens, Greece could be a good location option for your upcoming shoot in February. Feel free to send me an email with your request and I can send you some location references.
    Warm regards from Greece,

    Hi Cat,
    If you’re willing to consider South America, Punta del Este-Uruguay could be a fantastic option for your upcoming shoot in February. Summer time, more than 14 sun lighting-hours and of course the best quotations.
    If so, let me know it and I can send you some location references.
    Best regards,
    Daniel Alvarez

    hi Cat,
    Israel is a good spot for you. We have sun during the European winter months although Israel is only between 3 to 4 hours flight from Europe.
    I will be able to send more photos later today,

    The hotel AC Alicante has a swimming pool at the eight floor. You can see perfectly the city center, Sta. Bárbara Castle, the Marina, etc. Alicante is a spanish medium city at the mediterranean coast with a good weather all the year, even the light is better in winter months.

    For more details please contact to:
