Starting out a new life in Spain

This Blog is about my families new life in Spain, nothing more nothing less (Hope those who read it enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed our experience so far)

To Finca....or not
15 November 2008 @ 10:02

Well in the face of all the recommendations of all the people we now call our friends, we have seen a finca that we love and we are thinking about putting in an offer...(a silly one start with of course!). My wife has decided we need to buy sheep, chickens and a small dog to boot. The sheep are to keep the grass short aroudn the trees and vines...the chickens for eggs (I was thinking bbq) and the dog to keep her company as I will be out in the fields each night tending to all the vegtables that I will be growing.

Now of course we are getting ahead of ourselves...the people who currently live there have not accepted any offer (as we haven't made one) we don't know if we can extend the finca but we have now fallen in love with a lifestyle...not a standard of living...This of course applies to everything in spain...its the lifestyle not the standard of living we came sit in the sun in November and watch our son play watch the kids running on the beach and so much more

So will we offer...I will let you know...but I do fancy being self sufficient...and being welsh...I can't wait to get a real pretty sheep

Hi. I wish you well in your choise. We also enjoy the simpler lifestyle here and are keeping a look out for a rundown rustica property - somewhere we can make our own, with a bit of land for the olive, orange and pear trees and where the dogs can pay and bark without bothering the neighbours.

Good luck with your sheep!
