More about us

  1. I am a Dr of Urban Social Science and know a lot about cities! My son is half German and we welcome EVERYONE from the EU,

    I currently work in research and digital marketing. I can live anywhere.

    I also have excellent connections with motorbike tours around Scotland, so if you are a biker, I can help you here too.

    I am at the age where I have decided to leave the UK and plan on a permanent move to Spain in 2017.

    I am open to any dates and suggestions.

    If you have a very large party of 10 for example, I can arrange two flats, next door to each other as my neighbour is also single and has a flat almost identical to mine and is beautiful and modern. Please just ask and I will discuss this. Photos can also be provided for the second flat.
