And at last some photos of our bilingüal home where students and Dream Holiday guests can come and feel at home during their stay with us.
There are a lot of things left to improve and change since I moved back for good in summer 2021 but here you have a virtual tour of how it’s looking thus far.
The hallway is already finished.
The lounge is also ready and currently being used in our lessons to watch movies, do crafts, play board games, have lunch or dinner during the cold winter months or the hottest summer days thanks to the full air conditioner below.
Kitchen will change at some point, as soon as I can recover the current investment made in making the house feel more like «my home» and hopefully your home during your immersions or dreamy holidays.
Here is where we prepare our meals and learn all vocabulary that has to do with cooking and the kitchen; from cooking utensils, washing vegetables, draining pasta, boiling water, furniture vocabulary, food, description of food (raw, cooked, steamed, roasted, ready, rotten, etc) as well as reading, understanding and learning new recipes or kitchen chores like loading the dishwasher, putting things back to where they belong once the wash cycle is completed, and last but not least important…. dancing (as that board claims). Furthermore, ever since we got a «brasero» here is where most lessons have taken place when it’s cold outside.
The room for adult immersive students or future dream guests is also ready.
For those who enjoy seeing before and after pictures as well as the interior decorator that helped me with this project you can see the whole process here.
This is where I usually sleep with my daughter as she doesn’t like sleeping on her own yet. An additional bed single bed can be added for female students.
In this other room below we could host an extra young immersive student together with one of their parents and my son, to ensure the don’t speak Spanish. The only reason for having one of their parents here with us is so we can ensure the immersion is 100% effective by them ensuring siblings won’t spend too much time bickering and fighting each other plus the usual peace making process so all of them will learn way more Spanish that way.
We also have a garden and an adyacent orchard to learn all about gardening, watering flowers and growing vegetable plants.
But the most outstanding feature of our garden is definitely the size of the swimming pool below.
I am currently investing a lot of time, energy and joyful effort in creating bespoke, cosy and unique outdoor spaces where my students and dream guests can enjoy the lovely morning breeze for breakfasts or a warm sunny winter one, a refreshing swimming pool lunch or tea during the heat peak hours, the amazing sunsets from our «casita» solar terrace above as well as stargazing in Perseids season, or simply enjoy a midnight swim before going to bed. ;D
And if you’re not interested in learning Spanish/English but you would love to hire our guest room for a dream holiday place to rest, have fun and enjoy life these next holidays… please do so here.
The house is located in the countryside where you can get lost walking through endless rolling hills of olive groves as well as enjoying lovely bike rides through bike lanes between neighbouring villages. You are only a street away from the bus stop that can take you to the most amazing and bewitching city centre of Granada in less than 20 minutes (if you get the direct one). Please remember that with your own vehicle you can also go hiking to Sierra Nevada, visit La Alpujarra or just enjoy the beach of Granada in less than a 40 min. drive if you catch the highway that drives nearby.
For those students or house guests who wish to come and have no means of transport in Spain we can also offer them a ride to and from the airport or train/bus station as long as their arrival or departure times are within 9:30 a.m and 8 p.m.
All the house is reduced mobility friendly and you might be able to enjoy it by yourself, but assistance will be provided during check in and check out. Or anytime you wish to come in and out. Don’t hesitate to ask for it. My aim is that any guest feels safe, comfortable and cared for.
And if you like the place and wish to book it simply for holidays, now you can book our guest room here.
