Nestled amongst the pine, olive and almond trees on a gently sloping terraced hillside with commanding views, sits Good Life Farm. Our Casa offers self-catering, eco friendly, off-grid accommodation for up to 4 adults in a traditionally styled two bedroom casa with all the modern conveniences you expect, but with views, peace and tranquility that is hard to find and can even see them whilst cooling off in the pool.
Other than when you see us enter or leave the farm, you will feel as though you are the only people in the valley. There are uninterrupted views due west for 18 miles, so you get the most amazing sunsets. The casa is lovely and cool in the heat of summer. The windows all have insect nets and shutters.
Just 50 metres away from the Casa is the owners house. Next to the owners house is the pool. The pool is shared with the owners, but it is completely private and can't be seen by anyone. The pool can be illuminated for a late night swim to cool off before going to bed.
We have wifi available all over the farm, but the speed is limited to just 3mbps shared amongst everyone, so its not possible to stream a film whilst someone else is making a video call. The TV is connected to a Kodi box, which has a selection of films and box sets to watch, plus some freeview TV channels are available.
Next to the casa is a self-contained studio which sleeps 2. It has its own bathroom and kitchenette, and is available as an add-on for larger groups. Please contact us for more information.
Due to guests marking us down due to dust, I would like to explain this is mountainous terrain, among many trees and dirt tracks and as we know Spain is dusty. Can appear one minute after dusting too, but we try very hard to keep the place as spotlessly clean as you would enjoy in your own home and I hope a little bit of spanish dust wont put you off. :)
You are free to explore our farm land and beyond as you wish. The casa is located 100m away from our house, so you have your privacy. The pool is located next to our house, but it can be requested just for guests if you wish. We have 3 dogs, so we are pet friendly so long as your pet is friendly. Important notice regarding pets, they are not allowed in the bedrooms or on the furniture without protective covering such as a blanket, as of course we have to think of other guests who might not be so dog friendly! So please bring something suitable that will protect our furniture.
Unfortunately we can't allow cats.
Due to the wonderful mountainous terrain, we feel this is not suitable for young children, as we have 6 hectares of climbing terraces and cannot possibly fence them all for a young child's safety, so we are sorry to disappoint, but have a policy of no under 12s.
We work our olive and almond farm, so we can always be found if you need us.
There will always be one of us on the farm at all times for your convenience and security. There is so much to see and do in this area, if you need any help or guidance, come and find us and we'll help you wherever we can.
The farm is off-grid, which simply means we need to be considerate of electricity and water consumption. We have solar for electricity, which is also stored in batteries for use after sunset and during cloudy days. We ask that people refrain from using hair driers, microwaves, toaster etc when it is dark as these use a lot of electric. Water is harvested when it rains, and is filtered and pumped back into the houses, and because the water pump uses electric, we as guests to try and refrain from showering late at night to avoid draining the batteries. A guide to living off-grid is in the casa. As Flix is a rural town, there is just one small supermarket open on Sunday's between 10h-14h, so please bring enough food and water if you are checking in on a Sunday. Or if this is not possible, let us know in advance and for a small supplement we will ensure you have the essentials to keep you going until the supermarket is open.
There are the smaller items like salt pepper and other sundries already in the casa for your convenience. We provide a charcoal BBQ for you to use, but you can only use charcoal, wood is not permitted due to the risk of fire and the farm being located in a pine forest.
