    Beschreibung

    We are an international mix with a Brit (James, 40), a German (Steph, 43) and two Spanish dogs (Rebel, 3 and Pancho 5). We live in the countryside of sunny Spain - en el campo, as the locals say - located between the small town of Sax and the village of Salinas in the Alicante province. Both are very typically Spanish, not touristic at all. Our home is surrounded by lovely views of mountains all around us and your bedroom has the same lovely view.

    James bought the house 2015 as an empty shell. Since then, our casa has been nicely made up, we built a new pool and started creating a garden. But there are still lots of projects around the house and in the garden that we want to do and that you could help us with.

    We are environmentally friendly in our own little ways. Our electricity is off grid using our own PV solar panels all year round. Hot water is solar heated during most of the year and can be supported by a gas boiler when there is not enough sun.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We are happy to help practicing English and we always love practicing Spanish.
    We genuinely enjoy meeting and learning about other cultures and share our own experiences if one is interested.

    Both of us are interested in exploring the area and can give you tips about where to go and what to do. If we have time and you don't have an own car, we would love to take you on a day trip and show you places.

    We practice Spanish with our neighbors who do not speak anything else and get gardening advice and seasonal fruits from them. They are lovely! We go most Mondays to the local market to get fresh veggies and fruits and an occasional plant for our garden.

    Let us know what you are interested in and would love to learn during your stay!

    Things on our general to-do list:
    -As James will be in England for a while, at the moment it is mostly helping Steph with a few things, especially when she doesn’t have time herself or isn’t good at it (planting)
    -Garden weeding
    - Moving a few plants
    - Helping with keeping the house clean
    -At times helping with watering some plants

    As mentioned we have two dogs, Pancho & Rebel, both adorable though very different. We (and especially the dogs!!) love it when guests interact with them and cuddle them, so feel free ;)

    We have a cosy double room with own bathroom for you. There is a shelf or chest of drawers and clothes hanger in the room and two night tables.
    Help yourself to breakfast, we usually have cereals and/or toast there. At the moment we only offer breakfast as we only need help with easy and not too many things. You will have lots of free time!

    Our direct area is about the outdoors and nature. We have bikes you can borrow, they are great to explore the surrounding villages and towns. There are also lovely hiking routes that you can start right from our house. The pool is only open in the summer.
    The wider area offers lots of different stuff worth seeing and exploring. The coast is about 45 mins by car and there are several great beaches. Alicante (40 mins) is a nice city with a castle, a lovely beach, great restaurants, a cute old town and a lovely stairs quarter up the hill. There are several sights in the mountains, lots of old town and villages with lots of little castles. Sax is the closest one, about 6 mins drive by car or 30 mins by bike, with lots of good restaurants and the typical picturesque castle on a hill. There is a train and bus station in Sax.
