Last Friday after work, we packed our bags and drove to the nearby mountains! It was a rustic weekend getaway and much needed y’all!
We did actually plan this trip a bit in advance, so the bags were all packed and ready to go when I came home from work, lol. I’m not that spontaneous I think! We went with two more families, who are really good friends of ours and have two kids each as well. Win Win, happy kids = happy parents!
The rural house we rented is located in the nearby mountains, only about an hour and a half away from home, which is really convenient, since neither of us was up to driving for too long. The weather was great, but that’s not new here in the South of Spain, where we are. The sky is always like this, no photoshop, it’s real!
The house was completely renovated, it used to be a stable and barn and the owners converted it into a lovely holiday rental! They left lots of original features and made it really rustic with lots of different styles of decor and it is a wonderful place to spend the weekend for sure! We were literally in the middle of nowhere, we went hiking, exploring, there was a small river behind the house, so you can imagine the kids being just happy with that and with being out in nature all day long.
We actually had a fire on in the fireplace, the house was equipped with both central heating and air conditioning, but when we arrived it was chilly and we all felt like sitting by the fireplace. I snapped most of these photos right when we arrived, and believe me, it didn’t look like this after three families of four had moved in, lol!
The house had 5 bedrooms in total with 6 bathrooms, a library, three living areas and a huge open concept kitchen I didn’t take photos of, how could I have forgotten that! I’m showing you a few only, lol, this post would be endless, so these were my favourite parts of the house.
I hope you enjoyed these photos and yes, i’d definitely go back and stay longer than a weekend here!
