About Chrystine Macphail
Both my Husband and I are from South Wales, we decided to move to Spain in 2005 after finding our beautiful peaceful little piece of heaven. We find the way of life here is so laid back and peaceful who would not want to move here. We have been here for nearly 10 years now it has been an experience getting the cottage renovated and our own home built, it hasn't been an easy journey but we have no regrets. There is no hustle and bustle, get up when you want, go to bed when you want, relax by the pool all day with a glass or 2 of vino, it is really our chill out place and we decided to put our cottage out for summer lets so others could come and enjoy and experience what we have, and hopefully you will like what you see.
Chrystine Macphail purchased this cottage in 2004
Why Chrystine Macphail chose Almogia
We visited the area of Almogia for the 1st time in 2004, we had never been to mainland Spain before. We fell in love with the area around our cottage and house which are both set in a small valley surrounded by wildlife, Almond, Olive, Carob and Fig trees. Whilst looking at the area we spotted both properties which were once ruins and walked through wild lavender and many other beautiful flowers and wild herbs, the scent was unforgettable. We spent the 1st year renovating the cottage and building our own house. It is peaceful here green and lush in the Autumn, Winter and Spring months and to sit watching all the different species of birds fly about, see the fox who lives on the mountain opposite us, watch the wild boar roam and for the last few years we have seen a family of Mouflon pass our home, it is a joy to watch. We are secluded yet only a few mins drive from a good surface road and only 5km from Almogia. We have found our little paradise here and want to share the experience with others. We are so pleased to have found it.
What makes this cottage unique
We are situated in a small valley and have a river that runs around the cottage during the winter months if we are lucky enough to get rain, our man house is on top of a mountain and we have a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains and sometimes see the local goat herder climb up the mountains in front of us. We see eagles fly over regularly in summer but we do have a solo eagle who lives in a tree that will grace us with his presence, who would not love to be in a place like this. We have hammocks everywhere so we can chill during the afternoon or enjoy a glass of local vino whilst watching the sun go down. HEAVEN.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hey Christine and Dave, I think I have already written some friendly sentences about your house and our week in Almogia on the Homeaway-Page. But maybe I did something wrong. I will try again and be sure: We liked you (Dave) and your dogs and the region very much. I think we will come again one day – a little bit later in the year, so that we could use the pool and the weather would be better. Thank you once again for all your efforts and a good season!
Best wishes and greetings, Anja, Franz and Johannes
