A True Story

I often get asked what i am doing in Valencia and how long have i been here, so I’m going to tell you a little story about this place.
In a previous life i trained as a Chef in fancy hotels in the UK, i’d been getting itchy feet for quite a while and the options were exciting job offers in Sydney or London, roundabout this time i met a girl at work and love made up my mind, i decided to give Valencia a go for 6 months and see how things developed. 20 years later, I’m still here and don’t regret my younger selfs leap of faith.
Anyway, learning the language was quite important to win over the In Laws and i needed to work, so Suegro Pepe gave me a job in construction. A young, fit, slimline me fetched, carried, lifted, soaked tiles, mixed concrete, grouted bathrooms and kitchens in this very building. You learn real Spanish, real quick on building sites and it was fun while it lasted.
And here is one of the apartments that i actually helped build, set in the centre of the village this 1st floor of 80m2 with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms has wonderful views to the mountains from its 20m2 Terrace, included in the price is a garage, a storage room for the bikes you’ll need to explore the Sierra Calderona and a great communal garden with play area and pool.
I can remember when all this was fields…….
