Here is our story …
“Let your dream be bigger than your fears and your actions speak louder than your words.”
We, Rudi Slabbinck and Conny Develter were convinced to make the big step to warmer places. In October 2013, we were only three years together, from the very beginning it was clear that we both wished to leave Belgium to live under the Spanish sun. We wanted to leave the stress of Belgium behind us, not for getting rich but to live a rich life.
I, Rudi, was already a fan of Spain but initially Conny doesn’t wanted to live in Spain. She loves the sun but associated Spain with overcrowded beaches and mass tourism. More than 4 years ago, Conny and I made the first trip to Spain together and we visited an authentic mountain village and then she realise that Spain is so much more than blackened sunbathers!
After this trip we accelerated our search for the ideal location for achieving our long-cherished dream. After a long search across many Spanish roads we came across an idyllic country lane between the orange, lemon and almond groves. We stumbled by accident on our Finca in Albatera.
The asking price for this Finca was indeed above our budget, but we were sold on this beautiful location and house immediately. What we had never dreamed was that a dep longing, came to the forefront. Yes, we were moved by the exquisite beauty of this authentic Spanish mansion.Everything was right, the house, the grounds, the views, the many facilities … Our choice was quickly made.
La Huerta is a private house on a plot of 4000m² with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, three years ago completely renovated. Furthermore, the finca has a beautiful swimming pool with outdoor bar and a rooftop terrace with breathtaking views.
Bed and Breakfast La Huerta was born. On July 27, 2013 we opened our bed and breakfast on the edge of Albatera, a town of about 12,000 people in less than half an hour drive from the popular seaside resorts of Alicante and Torrevieja and close to the Hondon Valley. From our Bed and Breakfast, the gate wide open for exploring the authentic Spanish countryside with its sleepy villages and the still-trodden paths. The beautiful coast and beaches of the Costa Blanca are just a short and pleasant drive away as are the cultural cities of Alicante, Elche, Murcia as well as many natural parks.
We can cater for singles, couples or families. Please take to your car or flight and come taste what bed and breakfast La Huerta has to offers you!
