General description

Rural chalet in a beautiful secluded area yet within easy reach of Valencia city and the village of Algar. The house has everything you need and runs on solar power and gas. Incredible mountain views, hikes and nature all around. The dogs, cat and chickens are all friendly and easy to look after. There’s a lot burner for colder evenings, a massive BBQ and pool for fairer days, and generally a fantastic rural relaxed escape from civilisation vibe in the house. But you can see the village from the house, and when all is quiet even hear the town clock.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • 3 dogs
  • A cat
  • Birds
  • Farm animals
We have an extremely gentle German shepherd Lusia, a collie Alsatian cross, Tia who is playful and ever so friendly, and then a little boss dog patterdale terrier Ernest who is a little more demanding but essentially a loveable lad too. They all get along famously and love their life out in the mountains here. Ernie came from England, Tia from Ireland and Lusia is a local. Anita the cat was also rescued from near here as an abandoned 1 week old kitten. She is adorable and cuddly and loving. The animals need feeding, stroking and generally loving. Nothing too strenuous for an animal lover. Ernie is known to have occasional epileptic fits. This can be surprising to someone unaware of what it is. But it is controlled and only happens when he gets extremely stressed or hyper. Other than that we live a fairly normal calm life here and would love to share it with someone to give us the opportunity to visit friends and family in the UK.
