Toby and Belinda's new home

Well it’s been a while since we last had somewhere to call home but we are pleased to announce that we now have a home again.  The last home was in Chester, which we left 16 months ago and although it’s still there we don’t feel like it’s our home anymore.  During the past 16 months we have lived quite an adventure – traveling Spain with our car packed full of useful stuff and then Latin America with only small backpacks to live out of and now Ibiza.  The first few months here on Ibiza have been a settling in period, getting used to the island and finding our feet and a new home.

We moved in with the help of a couple of friends on Sunday, thank you Jinny and Mike.  We are blessed with renting a beautiful little detached white finca in the tranquil countryside  of San Carlos, off the Cala San Vincent road – it is just what we were hoping for;  a cute 2 bed house that was reformed 2 years ago leaving the adjoining animal corales untouched and intact, the landlord is Ibicencan, lovely and grew up here when it was merely 2 rooms built from stone.

The house has been totally modernised with electricity, new kitchen and bathroom but keeps it’s old well which stores rain water over the winter, come summer time we will need to buy a delivery of water to fill it up again which is relatively cheap – €90.  Our new home even comes with internet and a small sea view (or peek through the almond trees more like).  We have lots of land around us and plenty of space for a veg patch, Toby is busy planting Aloe Vera and scented Geraniums as I type!

Our first guest is booked in already – Kirstie will be visiting early March, with lots of you planning to visit at a later date.
