Andy and I (Sam) moved to Spain 14 years ago with our 2 children selling up in the UK and leaving Devon for Southern Spain.
I’m a farmers daughter and Andy from a farming background. We made the big decision to move after spending many holidays in warmer climates. We decided to take the plunge and live the dream! We chose Alora after a long search.Alora is a picturesque white washed typical Spanish village set on 3 mountain peaks in the province of Malaga in the Andalusian mountains.In our search for property we found and fell in love with Finca Bonita, a mountainous finca in need of full renovation set in 18 acres of olive almond and fruit trees. We bought the property and fully
renovated it adding a swimming pool
2 large studio rooms and a very spacious 2 bedroom apartment with its own private terrace.
The children have now married and flown the nest and Andy I have decided to take the next step and offer holidays to our beautiful retreat.
I’m no stranger to the hospitality trade! I’ve worked in catering in the UK and in Spain and had my own bar for over 6 years, also working as a chef for the past 7 at a yoga retreat. My passion is entertaining, cooking and pampering guests.Andy takes care of the grounds and the property and enjoys the countryside. His hobby is Archery he has his own range at the Finca …anyone is welcome to try their aim if they wish!
