Country House for Rent

The setting

The owners of this old country house have asked us if we know anybody who would like to rent it on a long term basis. This traditional farmhouse has 3 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living room. To the front is a terrace and there is also a  large inner courtyard and stable which could be used to keep donkeys, goats, chickens or used as a workshop. The extensive land can also be used by the tenants.

The house

The owners who live in Fernan Perez will tidy up the property and install new solar panels to provide electricity for light, TV and low energy appliances. The fridge, hot water and cooker are powered by bottled gas.

Another view - the stable is at the far end

The house is located down a track a short distance off the road between Fernan Perez and Las Negras. The only visible neighbours are us and we are about 500 metres away. The rent is only 250 euros a month. If anyone is interested please contact

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
