Hi! We are Chris and Scarlett - an English couple who in 2000 left the UK and our high flying executive jobs to live in sunny, slow southern Spain!
We love to travel and cook and have lived abroad and backpacked all over the world picking up new culinary skills and recipes that we like nothing more than to share in our cookery classes. Our travel experiences have really helped us understand what our guests require.
As the paradigm we live by is "Think-Act" the dream of retirement unsurprisingly has not materialised as we couldn't resist developing first a catering company and then a major project - building our Casa Rural - deep in the orange and olive groves south of Granada, Andalucia. After 11 years and despite all odds we opened in August 2011 and happily have enjoyed the arrival of guests from day one.
We now live on La Finca together with our dogs, cats and chickens and love the visits we receive from a really wide diversity of clients who share the beauty and convenience of our Lecrin Valley location and the warm welcome and comfort of the house and our friendly team.
We fill our days and have such fun taking guests on guided walks, sailing days, tapas tours in Granada and organising ski days in the Sierras and beach days on the Costa Tropical.
We count ourselves very lucky to live here in the beautiful El Valle de Lecrin and very lucky to be able to share this life with so many visitors who come back and back and become good friends.
