ABOUT THE LOCATION
My name is Trevor & this is my lovely wife Frances and we shall be your hosts for the duration of your stay in the Airstream.
We are situated 3 kilometres outside of a small Spanish white pueblo named Alozaina, just 2000 souls, its a taste of real Spain, quiet and honest and our living location on the mountain is idyllic, peaceful and restful and far away from the humdrum world of distractions and confusion.
Here is the perfect place to discover coherence and clarity whilst at the same time enjoying the luxury of residing in this classic American Icon, the Airstream!
I first discovered inland Spain in 1999, its a world away from the Costas and my attraction to it was immediate, so much so that my choice has been to re-locate myself here permanently and I moved over lock, stock & barrel in 2007. As a well travelled person I can honestly say that the quality of life here has far exceeded my expectations, whilst still being only two hours from the U.K.
All places are unique and Andalucia being at the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsular is especially different, it does of course enjoy more sunshine hours than anywhere else in Europe and culturally the blend of moorish and spanish influences has given it a rugged and dare I say unpolished finish which to me is extraordinarily attractive.
Add to that the passion of flamenco and the gypsy influence which took 6000 years to travel from India to the peninsular and you have a melting pot of cultural fusions resulting in what we now know and call 'Andalucia', which literally translated is given as 'walk in light'.
I have spent my life in the service industry and here I am once again engaging in the activity, because it is my joy and that which I have I choose to share. I believe that I have created a really unique venue which is very definitely in the glamping category and if you are looking for a vacation with an 'edge', Something different which will stimulate and challenge then I think you may have just stumbled upon the right page.
I look forward to being your host and i look forward to meeting you.
