What’s this about?
This is Peter and Maureen Scargill's Spanish website. We live in Galera in Andalusia (for clarity, that is the English spelling - Mid-Spain they spell it Andalucia and pronounce it "And-a-loo-thee-a").

We've had a home in Spain for more than 14 years and it is now our permanent base though we retain a small home in the UK.

Find out more about this by reading through the blog entries, menu-accessible pages and archives if you're interested! Welcome to Peter and Maureen's Spanish website.

A Mini Adventure

mini adventureThis weekend, Maureen and I went on a mini-adventure down to the coast, starting in Galera and heading west towards Puerto Lumbreras before dropping down through Huercal-Overa, Vera and eventually down to the coast. Throughout the trip the temperature rarely dropped below 26c and was excellent with clear blue skies.

WildlifeWe stopped overnight and for dinner in Nijar, specifically at Casa Rural Cortijo La Alberca way up outside of the north end of town. Nijar is great – lots of decent shops and a great atmosphere.

The hotel itself we could hardly fault, from the friendly service to fantastic views and a marvellous pool. We made a point of getting a good look at the coast down there including Aqua Amarga, Las Negras, La Isleta Del Moro and other places on Saturday.

The beachOn Sunday we headed off to San Jose, calling in at San Miquel de Cabo de Gata and other small areas before heading off to Almeria before starting the trip home up the far less eventful A92 toward Guadix an then onto Baza and home.


On the way back we say the largest solar installation of it’s kind just outside of Guadix, providing power to up to 200,000 people.  The Andasol Solar Power Installation – https://www.rwe.com/web/cms/mediablob/en/1115150/data/0/1/Further-information-about-Andasol.pdf
