  • Description


    We have been married for 30 years and in 2002 we made a big life changing decision and left our jobs and moved to Mallorca. Initially we lived on the coast and then bought and renovated an old farm (finca) in a Spanish village. Twelve years later In 2016 we sold our finca and fell in love with and bought a 500+ year old olive farm. The property and land had sadly gone into decline so we have spent the few years bringing it back to life again. We have nearly completed the house and are now beginning work outside in the garden and land. We have approx 35 acres of mountain with terraces of olive, carob and wild oak trees.
    We live here with our rescued family - three dogs and three cats, harry, lulu, Alfie, Doris, Beattie and bob.
    We are situated in the pretty mountain village of Galilea. There are beautiful,dramatic mountain and sea views plus total peace and quiet and fresh mountain air to enjoy!

    We are keen to finish off the last few things in the house now and looking for someone who can help us with some carpentry/joinery skills. We would like to create a storage cupboard area in our entrance hall for coats, shoes, washing machine etc. Plus build a rustic outside bar area near the swimming pool!
