    We are at Chicken run for a couple of days. Lovely little place, very welcoming hosts, and a great place to while a bit of time away in the sun.

    Glorious day today, Sian's sunbathing, Katie's off somewhere horseriding with our hosts daughters and I'm doing a bit of work in the shade of this orange tree. :Cool:

    It must be good being a rich forum owner.

    Don't worry, your empire is safe in our hands, keep up the good work, we'll just carry on chattering away amongst ourselves.

    Hi Karl, will do a proper report later, taken plenty of photos, this place would suit you down to the ground. half decent 5gb Internet, local bar just up the road, very quiet area so you could sleep during the day after working most of the night with your business. Very rural but excellent supermarket within walking distance.

    Think family small holding; Ducks, oranges, chickens, lemons, goats (coming this week) horses. Very accommodating owners, nothing too much trouble, hookups if you need them, the pump turned on twice a day to draw water from the well. Triffic, we have places we need to be this week but its going to be hard to drag Katie away from Chicken run:Smile::thumb:

    I'm not only green with envy but weeping!
    Was booked in the Chicken Run for a month with the French motorhome that turned out to be dodgy.

    So stuck here in sub zero temperatures I at last, after almost 2 weeks, have 1 toilet that can be used, still no running water, a ceiling that is going to have to be pulled down & possibly a wall too. Bill at €2000 and rising........ thank God for house insurance but no confirmation yet that they'll pay out.

    Enjoy and savour... it sounds waaaaaa(y) better than living here.

    The Chicken Run on Google map

    The building you can see on the above map is the owners static caravan.

    If you read this Jim and are heading for Zahora as you said, it may be worth calling to ensure they can give you a pitch. Next weekend is Andalusia Day and they say it will be very busy.

    Thank you Jim and Sian for your kind words on our site, we are always worried campers wont love it as much as we do. Will send you updates when you leave on our ongoing progress, and thanks again for your advice and encouragement from your members, Motorhome fun is a fantastic site.

    Take care
    Best wishes

    Lesley & Andrew
