  • Description

    Description

    We are Christian (musician / sings author) and Mar (retired and writer). We have been married for 19 years and 16 have lived in this house.
    Our home is in a neighborhood on the slope of the mountain; The house is spacious and very bright right in the heart of the block.
    It has a large patio with forest and a greenhouse that tries to grow year by year.
    For some time we have received guests through and our home has been transformed into a small cultural house.
    My husband is a musician: I teach and love writing.
    The house has also; a SUM (multipurpose space) where shows and varied cultural activities are held.
    We only speak Spanish although we can communicate with very basic English with all the predisposition to learn and communicate with whoever wants to visit us.
    We have four children; very travelers all; most often use this application to meet people and places.
    Currently, no one lives with us since the child left for a year to exchange for the Czech Republic and his room is a beautiful space to open to anyone who wishes to volunteer in this beautiful city that some call the end of the world.
     For us it is the PRINCIPLE of the world!
