  • Description


    I am a single women living between Spain and Las Vegas USA. I am currently in Spain living with my 2 dogs Teddy and Bobby and my two cats Mona and Lisa. I am retired and enjoying life to the full but still only 53. I was the CEO of a large real estate company.
    I live in a beautiful 9 bedroom villa nr the ocean which I rent out in the summer. The house always needs work, painting and gardening etc.
    I have 4 children aged from 18-30 who come to visit me often.
    My passion is horse riding, art and photography. I am an excellent cook. I smoke and drink. but not too much.
    I have traveled extensively throughout my life and always return back to Spain. This is where my heart is.
    My villa is close to all amenities but you will need transport to get here. Although I am happy to pick you up in Torrox bus station.
    The views from my villa are outstanding, overlooking the ocean and mountains.
    Im looking for inspirational people with a flare for design and forward thinking, who have a good work ethic, kind happy and respectful.
    I do hope you come work with me. I am fun and love life.
