SH Villa Gadea: 7 Days In Altea

I would say that Altea is probably one of my favourite towns in Alicante. Only an hour and a half drive south of Valencia it’s a town with a lot of character and relaxed surroundings, quite surprising as it’s only a 15-minute drive away from the vibrant atmosphere of Benidorm. After visiting Altea more than […]

Hola! Back from a month hiatus

It’s true, I have not updated for over a month. April became a big blur as soon as I took my trip to the UK. With a lot of things going on, including our home moving plans, work and kids the month quickly passed. As if by magic it’s already June and I’ve felt particularly […]

Discovering: Alpuente, Valencia

One thing I would say about our new life in Valencia is that weekends are unpredictable. Yesterday we went to our normal Spanish Sunday breakfast with friends along with my mother & partner (who have been staying with us for the festive holidays). A normal Sunday would usually start at 10 am at our local […]
