Welcome to Spain, enjoy.
We came to Spain to live from the U.K. 11 years ago, we are both into our 60's Irene now does volunteer work for two local charities, and her garden keeps her busy, she worked in a Spanish garden centre when we first came for three years and loved it. Dave keeps busy doing odd jobs for people, so helping out with our funds. We both had our own business in the U.K., and we love life here, it is very variable and full. Our nearest airport is Alicante, half an hours drive.
June 9 — October 30, 2016 These dates are flexible
We love to explore old towns and cities, meet lots of new people, and learn some more of the wonderful cultures. We also love beautiful scenery and walking through them.
This house was great for our family vacation. We had a fantastic time in Catral and it's surrounding areas -the beaches and the historic old towns- and the house was the perfect place. It was located in the private and quiet area of the town but still close to everything which made our vacation an easy one. It had everything we needed and was spacious for the family of four and very clean! It had a nice big yard with all kinds of plants and flowers, and a great front porch to sit out on while our children were playing at the pool. The house was comfortably furnished with neat old antique pieces. We had never been to Spain before but would not hesitate to go back. It was a nice exchange and good friendly and clear communication. Thanks for sharing with us.
We enjoyed out exchange in Singapore very much, we ran out time to do everything we wanted, the exchange home was fantastic, had all we wanted and more. Relaxing after every wonderful day in Singapore was simply the best for us in their home. We hope they had as much fun and delights as we did.
Thank you Dave and Irene for a most pleasant and memorable time in your lovely home in Catral. Apart from the comfortable and classy interior the outside space is fantastic. The huge shaded patio and large pool area is where we spent most of our time. With the mountains in the background, the large pretty garden full of birdsong all we can say is what a pleasure it was. Thank you again. John and Sue
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour chez Irene & Dave. Leur maison, et surtout leur piscine, ont été notre oasis et notre hâvre de paix. Notre séjour chez eux a été la partie reposante de notre périple. Nous avons aussi apprécié, dans un rayon de 1/2 heure de route, les belles plages de La Marina et de Guardamar, la petite ville de Elche et sa palmeraie ainsi que les fêtes au village de Almoradi. C'est l'endroit parfait pour ceux qui aiment le calme.
