  • Description


    Hi, we are Derek and Barbara Silk, a retired couple living in Abdet/Confrides, Alicante Region of the Costa Blanca. We have recently relocated from England and taken up residency in Spain. We are Christians and therefore follow Christian principles. We attend Church on Sundays and sometimes during the week either in person or via Zoom. The land that we have acquired is about 20 minutes drive away from our apartment in the near the Guadalest Valley.
    We are hoping to use this land as a camping\glamping site as well as making use of the Olive trees on the property, plant other fruit trees and vegetable garden. We also need stone walls erected and Access made usable.
