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.

BedrockThis is the Spanish website for Peter and Maureen Scargill. We have a wonderful cave home in Galera in Andalucía and this site is about our adventure. When we’re not here, we’re in the Northeast of England.

Read through the blog entries, menu-accessible pages and archives if you’re interested! Welcome to Peter and Maureen’s Spanish website.

In most of the cooler months, Maureen and I live in Northumberland, but increasingly in the summer, we spend our time in Andalucia. This is the story of our adventure – nine years and counting.

We hope you enjoy the blog which will continue to grow! To see our photo albums including the latest pictures you see in the blog and many, many more, check out our Flickr Album which exceeds nine thousand pictures taken over time.

This is not the place to describe our life, role in life or interests (though the latter will soon become apparent) – for more of that that you can always pop over to the scargill blog and look under “and” in the menu.  There is even a CV for me – though I can’t imagine why you’d be interested. If you’ve any feedback (we LOVE feedback) please use the CONTACT US page on this blog.
