WHO ARE WE?
Our company APARTAMENTOS KOSIDLO came into being in 1959 more or less by accident. Each year we would set off from Germany for our summer holidays in Platja d’Aro. These holidays seemed to last forever and were full of intense emotions. Our stays in Platja d’Aro were at the same time a great adventure in which we discovered something new every time.
My father Alfred Kosidlo wanted to find out if the Spanish lessons that my sister Barbara was taking were bearing fruit. So he encouraged her to talk to the old chap whom we frequently met on our way to the campsite where we had pitched our tent. Although Barbara wasn’t quite sure what she should ask him, she nevertheless spoke to him and the two of them were soon deep in conversation. Señor Arbusé told her he wanted to sell some of his land – and, if we wanted, we could buy it. And so the story of our family company quite accidentally started on its course.
My father acquired the first piece of land and we started to build our first holiday apartments on it. It was entrepreneurs like him who were the first to begin building close to the sea and so establish tourism on the Costa Brava and contribute towards its economic transformation.
