Moving from Denmark to Spain…

In February 2005 I moved to the Costa de la Luz in Spain with my little family. The children were only 3,5 years and 4 months. We had sold our house in Denmark and put our furniture into storage. Little did we know about the area nor the language. But what we did know; was that we were looking for adventure and a change of life style.

The move from the capital of Denmark to country side of Andalusia was huge. But we enjoyed living here; the friendly people, our time with the kids, the scenery with authentic white villages, beautiful countryside and the amazing Atlantic coastline. In October we bought a small run-down restaurant in the hamlet, Patría, on a top of hill with view over the Atlantic Ocean.

If we were looking for adventure, we got it!;-)

      Hej Inger. Hvis det er for en enkelt overnatning, er Hotel Sindhura et godt bud. (se: http://www.hotelsindhura.com/). Det er et fint lille hotel, der ligger 5 minutters kørsel fra vores restaurant. Vi vil se frem til at byde jer velkommen til Patría. Mvh Åse
