The image above is just after we visited the mountain property on our Escape To The Continent journey. We stopped and had a bite to eat before going off to the next property.
We had a fantastic experience on Escape To The Continent, and we are very excited to go back to visit more properties. We have several that we'd like to view in the mountainous regio west of Granada so we will keep these pages updated on our move.
Our favourite property viewed on Escape To The Continent was most definitely the mountain property. When we arrived by car, even though we couldn't look up at the area, we could just hear the peace and quiet of the mountain region.
Compared to the initial sounds of the road and dogs barking in the first property we saw and stayed in, this property was immediately ticking our boxes. As we walked in and looked up at the property, both Ken and myself looked at each other and he said: YES!
Yay! Our TV show with the Escape To The Continent Team will be aired on BBC2 tonight - 9th April. We are the third in the series of 20 so we are jumping through hoops with excitement to see the show tonight. Find out about our Escape To The Continent ...
If you've read Ken and Paula's story about setting up their secret world retreat, and you read the lyrics to Peter Gabriel's beautiful song, Secret World, you'll know just why we chose this song as the inspiration behind setting up our Secret World Retreat.
I stood in this sunsheltered place
'Til I could see the face behind the face
All that had gone before had left no trace
If you're an author or a bustling entrepreneur running your own home based business, you'll take one look at this image - as we did on our journey with the scape to the Continent team in Spain looking for a property to start our own retreat - and you'll just want to sink into this chair, put your feet up beside the pool and lounge away the day writing or reading in total privacy and seclusion.
During our trip to Spain with the Escape To The Continent team, Ken and I fell in love with the mountain properties. This image shows just how tranquil and calming it is to take time out and relax in the sun overlooking a gorgeous view like this.
During our trip to Spain with the Escape to the Continent production crew to film the new series for the BBC, Ken and I were Spanish decor spotting. Any lovely little ideas, of which there are already 100s, we captured on our phones to give us ideas and inspiration for when we set up our own future retreat in Spain.
As Ken and I went around Spain looking at properties with the Escape to the Continent team to film our journey to find a suitable location to set up our very own Writing Retreat, we spotted this lovely place. Each time we found a property that may have given our future writing guests a place to sit quietly in the sun or hideaway in the shade, it tickled our interest in setting up a retreat even more.
