About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Catherine Allen

My husband and I live in Pays de la Loire, Northern France. We are currently renovating an old farmhouse and buildings. We have two older children who when younger enjoyed spending the whole of the school holidays at the Finca. <br/><br/>We spend as much time as possible enjoying the peace and tranquillity of our second home.

Year property purchased 1999
Why this location? We bought the four acres of olive grove in the summer of 1999. With the help and guidance of a local builder we transformed the exisiting finca into a beautiful home that the whole family could enjoy throughout the year.

We love the serenity of the mountains which are perfect for walking or picnicking by the spring fed streams.
Unique benefits of property After a long day out in the mountains it is the perfect end to come back to the Finca and sit by the pool watching the sun go down. Perhaps lighting the barbecue and having a leisurely meal with family and friends.

However, if you would prefer a restaurant meal the village is only a 10 minute drive away.

The Owner Recommends


Within the local village of Canillas de Albaida there are some excellent restaurants: the Plaza restaurant in the main square by the church, Bar Cerezo, Ramon and Antonio’s bars on the road out of the village towards Cómpeta. In Archez there is Venta el Curro
