Gem in Ojen
We are incredibly lucky to have a house that we go to near Marbella in Spain, every year. The first time I went was after my Mum died, when I was 7, and last year I brought my daughters here for the first time. The house belongs to my brothers godmother. She bought it in 1968 when it was a derelict donkey barn, and as you will see – it is now a stunning home. My Mum used to come here, then me and now the girls. I love the continuity this has.
The house is the mountains behind Marbella, in a village that has everything you could possibly need. It is a true haven of peace and beauty.
Nina has decided that she wants to live here. One of my dreams is to bring the children here for a year and put them into school so that they can learn Spanish. Sadly that is unlikely to happen. So in the meantime we dream all year of our week here.
