These are Kath & Frank, the home owners of the holiday home ‘Cortijo de la Fuente’. In the ‘Home owners in the spotlight’ series, we would like to introduce you once a month to a home owner who would like to share their personal story with you. Read the story of Kath & Frank here.
“Frank and I have traveled all over Europe and we fell in love with Spain years ago. We had a holiday home near Gaucín at the time, but work, children, and responsibilities took control of our lives. It was always a question of when we were going to come back to Spain, but as soon as the youngest child reached adulthood, our new adventure could start for the two of us in 2014. We started to discover the area around Gaucín and we discovered by accident the area near Antequera. Beautiful prehistoric, Phoenician, Roman, Moorish, Catholic and now modern Spanish city.”
Kath & Frank have visited many homes, but once they arrived at Cortijo de la Fuente, they knew this was the home they had been looking for for so long.
“When we first saw the house in Fuente del Conde, we were led to the edge of the terrace, looking out on the Subbetica Mountains with Iznájar on its rocky outcrop above the valley with its huge lake; a freshwater reservoir.”
Kath & Frank have spent 3 years renovating the cortijo, which lies between a patchwork of olive trees and old oaks, where eagles, azure magpies and hops punctuate the sky.
“The thrill of this new life has given us renewed energy, reflected I think in the revival of my need to paint, create and record my impressions of Andalusia. Now is the time for both of us to immerse ourselves in the contrasting worlds of Europe, to enjoy the complexity, the idiosyncrasies and the contrasts between England and Iznájar, España.”
Kath & Frank have done a lot of work on the house. They have created outdoor lounge areas, the outdoor patio is used for table tennis, yoga or sunbathing, and a covered outdoor area in the shade for eating and relaxing in the summer. The house is surrounded by the most fragrant and colorful lavender and rosemary. A beautiful paradise.
“Cortijo de la Fuente has the most stunning views of the rolling countryside and mountains. We are a short drive from Granada and Cordoba where you can visit our personal favorite attractions: the Alhambra and the Mesquita.”
