Our home

My home is a large country house located in the mountains. It was built in the 1970's and has this feel. It comes furnished with all of the necessary amenities. There is a wood-burning stove and chimney in the living room and several gas heaters and an electrical heater. Southern Spaniards do not build their houses with central heating (with very few exceptions). The garden is ample and there is a small swimming pool. I have been growing lovely vegetable gardens every summer here! There is plenty of light that enters the house and it is located on a dead-end street that is absolutely silent during the night. There is plenty of furniture (perhaps too much as one of the 4 rooms is being used as a storage room) and we have high speed internet and a phone line. Due to a personal lifestyle choice, we do not have a tv nor a microwave. You can see the Sierra Nevadas from our house. I am also offering my van with the house, which runs perfectly. It is a Volkswagen Transporter.

Who we are

  1. My partner, my daughter and I have been living in this house for 3 years now and are moving to New York city for at least 1 1/2 years in order to work and study. Thus we are looking for someone, or a family, that is looking to take a break in order to live another culture, learn another language or simply, take a rest from the hectic city life. Our house is simple yet charming and it has been a great place to raise my daughter. We want to leave it in the hands of a loving family or person. My partner is a musician and I plan on studying art therapy at night while working during the day. We would prefer to live in a home, as well as entrust ours to someone, instead of renting an empty apartment in NYC. We have many friends who live in town, as well as the town right next to here, who would be more than happy to help out in any way during your stay.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The neighbors are quiet, respectful and keep to themselves, yet very friendly and helpful. The town is small, quaint yet contains all of the necessary amenities such as a supermarket, butcher shop, fish markets, hair dressers, hardware store, school, church, town hall, doctor's office and cafeterias. Granada is only 10 minutes away by car. The Sierra Nevadas are 40 minutes away, Malaga is 1 1/2 hours away and Almeria is 2 hours away. We live in the heart of a Natural Park and the location could not be more ideal! The amount of activities that one can take advantage of while out here are unlimited!
