Hi , I am an Australian living in Spain and loving it , I was lucky enough to find the perfect house for me it is surrounded by country but few minutes walk to beach.
I have been here over 10 years with my youngest daughter who is studying at university.
The house was a ruin when I found it and it has taken years to restore and am still doing the land . I have fruit trees, a large garden and also chickens, peacocks and dogs and lots of birds in the trees.As I am so close to beach a lot of what I do is with water.
This area is the costa del sol , where I live is in a valley that has no buildings but I am minutes walk to beach and restaurant and 10 minutes to beachside towns full of cheringitos and summer happenings , out of summer it is tranquil .

Plenty of odd jobs waiting to be done.

A bedroom in the house ,the house has 2 stories and this bedroom is upstairs .
Locally,this is beach , beach , beach , here is very spanish and is basically a beach area so summer it is alive and spring and autumn are just beautiful. It is tapas and seafood .
