End of Summer – Autumn on it’s way

Well the heat of summer has gone and we now have more comfortable temperatures.  This week storms were forecast for the Granada area but so far we only had a small downpour last night with a spot of tunder & lightening.  Supposed to be a few more stormy showers today and then sunshine & cloud for the rest of the week with temperatures around 22 degrees – wonderful.

We had our annual wood delivery the other week so we are now well stocked for the winter when it arrives (seems mad stocking up with wood when it’s 30 degree heat but it’s worth it – nice dry wood ready to go).

Work on the house continues and we are on the last part – the top floor at the front of the house.  The chapa roof is being lined out with 3 different types of insulation and the decorative beams are up and the wood panelling going in slowly.  Once all that’s done I think the new internal walls are next which will also be insulated.  All in all probably 6 months of work ahead but all being well by April 2015 we will be ready to start renting out rooms!!!!  Over the winter we’ll be starting to work on info for the website etc and waiting to see what the new rules are from the Junta de Andalucia for holiday rentals.

Also pleased to say that come the new year there will be a new App available to download for interactive tours around Granada’s historic quarter.  This is a new start-up business venture by some local Spanish youngsters wanting to promote Granada’s many sites and places of interest using new technology.  They have degrees in tourism and are working with IT professionals so it promises to be a great service. So if you fancy a trip to Granada next Spring why not book a room with us and try out the new tour app for Granada.  Watch the video here

I’m planning a trip back to the UK at the beginning of December to see family & friends and to soak up all the festive atmosphere leading up to Christmas so hopefully I’ll get to have a drink with one or two of you.

Well that’s all for now – enjoy any warm weather that is left and have a great Autumn with all the changing colours that it brings.

Hasta luego
