Living in Andalusia isn’t just about surviving your daily life. I can tell you from my own experience that it is worth it to participate in the local and provincial parties of the area you live in, as it will enrich you with new knowledge on the Andalusian culture at the same time as you’re having a nice afternoon with your neighbours and friends.
Living in Andalusia
The sight from the terrace of my house in Casares is spectacular! After the “cold” winters, vultures increase their activity on the sunny days that cover the months of March, April and May, and I am lucky enough to enjoy their emergences nearly every afternoon right now!
Cazalla de la Sierra, a village located in the Natural Park of the ‘Sierra Norte de Sevilla’ , boasts one of the most enviable landscapes of the area. Living here means enjoying nature, strolling through the countryside, breathe in clean air, knowing that Seville is only an hour and fifteen minutes away. And there are manymore reasons to buy a luxury cortijo or farmhouse here!
All over Andalucía, even in small towns such as Casares, Manilva or Gaucín, carnival is celebrated. The most famous carnival takes place in the city of Cádiz, prominent for its joyful parades, the hilarious social critics through acts, and the lovely food.
Have you ever wondered how you can combine an active life, with a luxurious and tranquil life? I have. However, I can actually experience this on a daily basis! Yesterday I ventured out to the Sierra Bermeja, a mountain shared between the villages of Casares, Estepona and Genaguacil.
If you buy a house in Spain, in our case we chose Casares, and you start to live there with your family, your first wish would probably be that your children will fall into the right hands, right? That they make friends and become accepted in the local environment? My parents were therefore certainly happy when I came home with an invitation to my first birthday party.
