A Peek Behind The Scenes On Escape To The Continent

Behind The Scenes On Escape To The Continent

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.

The Mountain Property We Viewed

The Mountain Property We Viewed on Escape To The Continent

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!

Secret World Lyrics By Peter Gabriel

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

Mountain Writing Retreat

Spend time writing in a Mountain Writing Retreat

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.

Setting Up A Writing Retreat

Retreat to a sunny deckchair to spend time writing your breakout novel

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.
