In 2004 we, Mick and Carmel left the UK in search of a change in lifestyle, what we found was the beautiful valley of Sola de Bados in the foothills of the Pyrenees, set between the Alt Emporda, Costa Brava and inland La Garrotxa. Our nearest village is Lladó which is just 6.5km away reached by a rugged mountain track.
After some negotiations we bought land containing a couple of properties in need of repair and some old ruins, which required more than a little attention! We have gone to great lengths restoring all the properties using traditional styles, restoring these ruins required much blood, sweat and tears but we have had many laughs along the way! we have been very lucky to meet some great people and have forged many great relationships. We now enjoy the Catalan way of life, food, siestas and fiestas!
