Who we are

  1. My husband Arne and I have been married for 40 years this summer when we intend to semi-retire and see new places more leisurely. We have 3 grown-up children: a son living in the Philippines with his wife and our 2 grandchildren, and two daughters living in London. We have been working as international consultants (Transport Planning, Economy and Environment) for the past 25 years, mainly in developing countries, so we have only stayed in the house on holidays, about 1-2 months per year. In the meantime, reliable caretakers and friends manage the house, including the pool and the garden.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is situated in Javea, an old Spanish fishing town on the Costa Blanca with about 25,000 inhabitants, excellent beaches and beautiful natural surroundings. An increasing tourism since the 1990s has also caused the construction of modern suburbs, 2 golf courses, an assortment of international restaurants and a selection of supermarkets. The house is in one of the more exclusive suburbs, on a hill overlooking the town and the valleys beyond with orange, almond and olive orchards. About 10 minutes by car on the other side of the hill is Javea Golf Club with an adjacent supermarket. We can also reach the old town in about 10 minutes and the beach in less than fifteen.
