Hi all,We just bought our cave at El Margin and love it,two months ago we'd never heard of them,saw them and instantly wanted one,two trips to Galera later,here we are!we spent over a year half heartedly looking for a place in france........say no more!
We are from Exmoor and as much as we love it,we are looking to move full time in a few years when our 17 year old is self sufficient,but,for now,winter in Spain sounds like a good plan.
We met lots of lovely people in Galera,both Spanish and British,even a nice chap from Chile,so we're really looking forward to spending some time there very soon! Hopefully meet some of you soon!

Ah yes, I used to do the rounds around there when I worked in the UK. Tried to fit it in at the same time as Caberboard at S. Molton. It was always a full day out and a pain on the N. Devon link, with all the loonies doing 90+  Its a v.nice area! Porlock hill we remain in my memory, going down it in a 'loaded' van.  Wink

Hi,I think your cave is across the road from ours, if it is you then you met with friends of ours who were just moving out of a rental cave at the back of yours. By the way, learning more about chickens every day!
Hope to meet up with you when in El Margen.
