  • Description


    Hola! I am Andres, a 36 year old veterinarian. I specialise in horses, who i love working with - Thats why you would have to share this beautiful place with a pony, two dogs and a bunch of cats.
    I bought this ranch a few years ago and I have a dream to bulid a Spanish school and extend the garden to grow my own food.
    I love travelling and meeting new people, exchange knowledge and learn. I also love adventure sports as rappelling and paragliding.
