|How's that for a view from your veranda? Those are mountains in the distance, its not cloud!|
So. I thought I would do a regular little spot showing what is available at what kind of prices for those who are considering making a move here. I am not an estate agent, this is just for fun and you know, like we are meeting up for a coffee and having a chat. Today I picked a house that belongs to people I know in an area I know.
And by the way, if you are seriously considering a change of life, a change of pace, an affordable life adventure in the sun then you should look at Spain. Why? Well, I guess everywhere has been hit by financially bad times over the last few years. But it's never been cheaper to buy a house here (it is also cheap to live here) and if you do have the money, or are in a position to make your dream retirement, then now is definitely a good time to do it.
|The house that goes with that view.|
A large farmhouse style kitchen to die for!
One of the Double bedrooms and ensuite
I love the basin - that's a fossil embedded in the marble surround!
Spacious but also cosy sitting room that leads directly out onto the veranda and that amazing view.
This house is situated in a small hamlet in Andalucia, but rural, not on the coast. About 8 km from the nearest town (Castril - gorgeous place, teetering on the edge of a mountain - very picturesque). The area has so much to offer. Very close to a National Park and renowned for its wildlife (amazing birds of prey) and attracts walkers and cyclists in season and has so much to offer the visitor, whether its an autumn walk in the woods for mushrooms (been there, done that!) or a meal in the restaurant at the local lake with facilities for canoeing, swimming, fishing etc... (been there, done that too!).
So. Go on. Guess how much? You won't believe it! 185,000 EUROS. Yes euros not pounds! The owners are English and moved to this area to be near family. But then their family moved away and naturally they want to go too. This is a ready to move into and hit the ground running type of house.

Who doesn't like to see into someone elses home and wonder what it would be like to live there. This one could be yours!
