  • Description


    hi I live on a small finca out in the countryside near the town of Gandesa in Catalonia been here a few years now and making steady progress. the house is nearly compleated but always something to do lol
    the place is remote but it does have all the amenities lol. includeing a slow internet service by uk standards
    the nearest beach is about 35 mins away at a place called miami playa although i tend to visit salou mostly,
    which has good night life and live entertainment in most of the bars so your quite welcome to join me when i go down there for a night out although the season finishes mid october and then the place becomes a ghost town
    gandesa is a small quiet town its on the spanish tourist map for its wine and the museum dedicated to the civil war as the fighting was very heavy around here, it also has stunning seanery and mountain walks nearby,
    my plot here is about 20 acres but the area is full of tracks and you can walk for miles if thats your thing. but bring a gps as the vinyards all look the same lol.

    there are no mains services at the property all power is generated on site and water is from a local source and treated on site for drinking but is untreated for washing and general use.
    as regards food well its basic and mainly pork based chops bacon roast beans i dont go in for fancy or spicy but if its not to your taste you are welcom to cook what you like but nothing that makes the house smell of garlic or curry
