We recently spent a year in Borneo, Malaysia. Chris (my husband) and I bought the house in Nijar at the recommendation of a friend. It was a good decision. Buying a house in Spain that needs renovating is highly stressful, especially when you don't have command of the language. However, we are delighted with the outcome and the house is now available to give friends, family and others a taste of the beauty in and around the village and region.
We are keen adventrurers and have spent time in some interesting parts of the world. We are both musicians and have performed in various locations and venues. In fact, we met through playing guitar and violin for a festival gig some years ago!
Musicians, painters, photographers, walkers and cyclists will all find inspriration in Andalucia. We hope you have a wonderful time and fall in love with our magical little house as much as we have.
