It was love at first sight. It was love over the Internet. I had seen the perfect home for John and I to ‘live out’ the rest of our lives.
Was it a villa with a pool? No, already got that in Cyprus.
Was it a farm house in Tuscany? No, France can be a little too cold and wet.
It’s a cave! Yes, a cave. Thankfully, John instantly fell in love too and that is quite surprising from a man who weighs up all the options a million times before committing to anything, (even going to the cinema).
We talked for hours about ‘what if’, ‘when’, ‘how’ and all the things you both need to work through when processing such an idea or project. After much debate and many many unanswered questions we both came to the same humungous decision – we both agreed we wanted to buy this particular cave. This is where it all began. We contacted the estate agent in Spain, made an offer and waited for a response back.
