This week has seen the arrival of guests from the UK, Paul and Patricia, accompanied by their Aunt Beryl, arrived on the same day as Christian and Jacqui, and coincidentally are also looking for property in the area. In fact they had come to look at a house that they had seen in the past but when they arrived, they found to their disappointment that it had already been sold. However, undeterred, they set off on their first day to view properties with a couple of local estate agents and saw several that could be suitable, although none had quite the feel of their original choice. They are in the fortunate position of not being under any pressure to make a quick decision, however, but rather wisely intend to take their time to find the place that is right for them. After that first day of property viewing, they have spent their time familiarising themselves with the area more fully and taking in all that Gandia and its surroundings have to offer.
They very much enjoyed a trip to Valencia City one day, making use of the convenient rail link from Gandia, and spent the time seeing the main tourist sights before returning here, and then setting off again to have evening meal at the nearby Viva España restaurant that also offers a flamenco dancing show as its evening entertainment.
A fairly non-stop trip, but one that they felt was enjoyable as well as constructive, and we certainly hope that they will come back again in the near future to continue their property hunt. It has been great to have a house of guests who have been such good company both for us and for each other, and we hope they have enjoyed their stay as much as we have enjoyed having them visit.
