I think so. Can't think of anywhere else that would give that view.

Looks a wee bit special doesn't it?

If it's where I think it is - the old fort that overlooks the Military base, I think you'll find it was CONSIDERABLY more than 6 million!

Defo PP - I was on the flight back to Bristol with her after she filmed the advert at the end of May.

I was wondering what time of year it was. I bet they had to do a bit of post shot editing to get the bay to look as completely boat-free as it appears.

Definitely La Fortaleza, it sold for 40 mil euro to a Brit banker... maybe we should repossess it!

In the pic you can see the pool where the advert was made

lol, you would be surprised at what it has in the grounds... about 4 years ago I was lucky enough to have been given a tour, if I had the funds I would have snapped it up, it truly is awesome

Funny how you hear different versions. I was told by a reataurant owner that he never got the asking price and it was sold to a scotsman for 25million .

Great spot Baron. I'd not seen the advert before but is obviously the fort with PP in the background.

Even if the boats haven't been taken out the ad has definitely had some photoshopping done to it, when one of the "hunks" peels back the lid on the yoghurt the yoghurt looks really false.

Funny about the different versions. I'd been told that it was sold for 40M and to a UK banker. Thanks for sharing the photo Kentish of the fort - it looks even more amazing than it does from the water when we've sailed past.
