Country House in Loja, Spain
Unique! An entirely self sufficient country house with land, ideal for anyone looking to offer alternative holidays (such as yoga, yurts or just as a retreat), trekking, walking, enjoying nature or just generally relaxing. Lots of fruit, olive and almond trees as well!
Self sufficiency means there are no running costs - you live free and no relying on large, impersonal, unreliable companies for services.
The renovation work was carried out to Belgian quality standards which the owner assures me are higher than Spanish standards.
