We were checking out the route as Bongo is guiding there on Friday for
We stuck to the small circular route from Mecina as it was another hot and sunny day and couldn't stay out late with the pups. But would love to do one of the longer hikes soon. If the weather ever cools down.... It's now October and still late 20s / early 30s every day 🌞
The surroundings were stunning and we walked through of the pretty white washed villages on the way. A welcome beer 🍻 at the end made it into a perfect morning 💛
Each day is a new adventure! If you like exploring, come visit us! Link in bio 🔗
🇪🇸 Casa del Bienestar welcomed its first official guests yesterday 🙌
We visited the local shops to add some finishing touches before they arrived. Lovely Alpujarran rugs for the floor, beautiful ceramic bowls for fruit and salad, and a lovely jug with fresh flowers from our friends and neighbours .and.co_vintage .
We left some essentials in the fridge - Lanjaron water, milk and of course, a bottle of Cava to welcome our guests to Spain. Also fresh fruit, tea and coffee. Always nice to have a few things to start you off on your holiday 😎

🌕 Started my walk this morning in the light of the beautiful full moon. Shining over our house that sits above the village of Lanjaron.

🇪🇸 My home town - Lanjaron
Famous for its water, Lanjaron is a spa town offering lots of treatments in the Balaneiro.
But this is just one of the things you can do when you visit. There's so much to do in the area! And not just in the summer like some other places in Spain. There's plenty to do all year round!
Hiking, horse riding, mountain and road biking, skiing, paddle boarding, trail running....
And for the less active, visit the Alhambra in Granada, head to the beaches of Almunecar and Salobrena, wander around Lanjaron itself visiting the local shops, honey and water museum or just chill at Casa del Bienestar and soak up the view 💛
We are fully booked for October, but still have availability for November and December. Imagine Xmas or New Year in the mountains.....
Get in touch to grab our special introductory rates! Full details on my website - link in bio 😎
🐴 Since moving here, we've made an effort to get to know our neighbours. Some of which include local businesses.
On our walk the other day, we popped in to see Sarah who runs
She has around 20 horses and runs daily treks around the Alpujarras. When you come and stay with us, this is another activity you can add onto your bespoke package.
is just above our house, so really easy to get to. We pass it most days on our morning dog walk. Just above, there is run by Emily, another of our lovely neighbours. So, another option for a place to stay on this beautiful mountain 💛
We are so lucky and so grateful to have all of this around us 🙏
✨ Casa del Bienestar ✨

🇪🇸 🙌 Hot, sweaty, but so happy! We got our TIE's 😁
This was the last stage of our very long self employed visa application to live in Spain. Thanks Brexit.....
But, after a morning in Motril at the Policia Nacionale - more documentation, fingerprinting, we were finally granted the right to stay here! Yes, it's only for a year, but we are now official Spanish residents 🙌
The parting words from the lovely guy who processed our application - ' Enjoy Spain '
We certainly are and are so excited for our future here 💛
Tourism licence comes next send then we'll be up for official booking!
Come and see us! Pre-booking available via email or DM 🙏
💦 Another of the great things about living in the mountains of Spain is the variety of landscapes and things to do.
Lanjaron is half an hour from Granada, half an hour from the beach, half an hour from the ski centre.
But the mountains and valleys around provide so much more!
Climbing, mountain biking, cycling, horse riding and of course, amazing walking and hiking.
We went on a fabulous walk at Albunuelas yesterday with our friends who run
It's super hot here at the moment, so we wanted to find a place cool enough to walk with the dogs.
They took us on a lovely, shaded river walk - we were literally walking in the river for the whole walk!
It was so beautiful! And the dogs loved it! There was even a natural pool to swim in 💦
We have been friends for many years. It started from borrowing climbing rope on one of our first trips to Spain, and after that, we caught up every time we came over for walks and drinks 🍻
They have so many different activities to choose from. You can do our walk, hike up Mulhacen, walk around the pretty white villages of the Alpujarras, or for the avid mountaineer, scrambling and full mountaineering ⛰️
When you come to stay with us on a holiday or retreat, we can help you add any of their activities to your bespoke package. Check them out and as always, reach out with questions 🙏
🍊 One of the best things about living in the mountains of Spain is the abundance of delicious fruit and veg that's available locally and seasonally. And it tastes amazing too 😋
I eat fruit every morning for breakfast - including fresh figs picked from our tree.
I have salad for lunch with the most amazing tomatoes grown In the Campo by local farmers 🍅 Tomatoes that taste like tomatoes!
When we are out on walks, we stumble upon almond trees, more figs, fresh mint.... And yesterday, we came across this persimmon tree! My very own Sharon fruit 🍊 Not white ready to pick yet, but I'll be keeping an eye on it....
The lifestyle is just so different to what I had in the UK. Even though I've only been here a few weeks, I already feel so much healthier 💛
We can't wait to start growing more produce of our own for guests to enjoy when they come to stay. What would you like to see in our garden?
Official booking coming soon, but for now, get in touch if you want to stay with us at Casa del Bienestar for our special introductory prices. All on my website - link in bio.

🔸 Full details on my website - just head to my bio and click on the top link - Movement Holiday
✨ Here's a bit about our co-host .always :
Alex McLaren is an expert Strength and Mobility Coach who works with a diverse population of clients ranging from seniors coming back to an active lifestyle after a hip replacement, to young professional athletes seeking to boost their athletic performance and longevity.
Alex’s innovative and inclusive style of strength training is both highly enjoyable, and challenging for all levels. His classes leave you feeling the good kind of sore in unexpected parts of the body that don’t often get the love and attention they deserve.
One of the things Alex is most passionate about, is educating people on how they can still train to become stronger despite any limitations they might have, working with the body, not against it. As a former National Team swimmer for Canada, the experience of having been forced to give up his competitive sport due to a long list of chronic injuries has now shaped how Alex trains and helps people move and feel better in a smart, holistic way.
🙌 I'm so excited to be collaborating with Alex! I first got into mobility work through him in lockdown. He's an amazing coach! So good, he inspired me to do my FRC training too. And this has shaped not only my teaching, but my own movement practice.
💛 We can't wait to help you move well and feel better in 🇪🇸
DM or email me at [email protected] for questions 🙏
💦 We have a pool 🙌
It's taken a few weeks to fill, clean and get rid of the slight green tinge.. oh and the dragonfly larvae...
Rupert the pool robot has done us proud the last few days. Hoovering up all the dust from the building work. He's been emptied and cleaned every 10-15 minutes. But it has worked! One sparkling, clean and very inviting pool 💦
Had my daily swim today and the water was a lovely temperature too.
Can't believe we have a pool 🙌
Each day we get a little closer to becoming ready for guests 💛
Website is getting it's final touches today with a little more info on what we will be offering. Keep an eye on my stories for updates 🇪🇸😎
🇪🇸🌞 It's been just over a week since we got back to our home in the mountains, and it's been really hot 🔥 Now I understand why everything in Spain shuts down in August 🥵
Today we decided to try the river walk at Ruta de Los Bolos in Durcal. It's only a 20 minute drive from our house, so nice and easy to still get there early before the sun fully rises.
What a beautiful place 😍 And pretty much the whole walk was shaded 😎 Making it perfect for the pups too 🐾
And of course, we were walking along by (and sometimes in) the river, so plenty of crystal clear water for the pups to drink too.
We're loving exploring what this area has to offer. Seems a bit of everything. And still so many places to go and so much to see 💛 Thinking of heading to the coast in the next few days to have a bit of beach time and get in the sea. Again, it's only around a 30 minute drive from here.
Now, for a chilled afternoon watching Rupert our pool robot get to work to make the pool sparkling clean and ready for anyone who fancies coming out to join us. Only a 3 (ish) hour flight from the UK and 90 minutes drive from the airport.... Friends and family get in touch for pre-booking testing 🙏
Hopefully booking will be available soon for our apartment too. Already have a few provisional ones in the diary, so get in touch if you want to pre-book your dates 🇪🇸🌞
🌧️ After 11 days in Edinburgh, we are so ready to go home 🇪🇸😎
Had our visa appointment last Wednesday and still waiting for some documents to come through for completion. It's been a long and challenging journey. And it's still ongoing..... But our new home and sunshine calls, so we're heading back for now. Lots to do to get it ready for September guests 😁
Hopefully we will get the documents in the next few days and can get the visa soon.
In the meantime, goodbye wet, cold Scotland 👋 and manana, hola warm sunny Spain 💛
To all friends and family, if you want to escape this weather, get in touch and come see us 🙏
🇪🇸 Final appointment today with the Spanish Consulate in Edinburgh 🙌
Pretty apt it was pi***ng down with rain to reinforce why it is we want to move.... Of course there are plenty more reasons too 😎
Just waiting on a couple more documents to come through and then we can get the plane back to our new home 🇪🇸💛
The end of our journey is nigh 😁
🇪🇸 1 full week in our new home.
No furniture yet..... But dogs are starting to settle in and the pool is filling slowly 😅
Sadly, we have to leave again to return to the UK tomorrow for the final part of our visa application. But our trusted pup sitter and pal has come over to look after pups, plants and property while we are gone 💛
He's sleeping on a mattress borrowed from our neighbours and friends down the mountain 😂 And at the moment is getting creative with our irrigation system to ensure our lovely garden stays green and in bloom.
Hopefully we won't be gone for long 🤞 And hopefully this is it! No more UK and properly starting our new life 😎
If you are around Edinburgh this week, give us a shout if you want to catch up 🙏💛

Up early this morning to view our new house (well almost... Signing deeds tomorrow morning)
Isn't it beautiful 🤩
There's a few vids in stories too....
We also met with our builder to go over the work we are looking to have done to the house to begin our rental and Move Well Holiday business here. He's starting the work tomorrow!!! Definitely puts UK tradesmen to shame 😂
So, hopefully we should be able to get our rental business up and running by mid to end of August.
