We have decided to put our house in Las Negras up for sale. Although it is an excellent and comfortable property it is too large for us and we would like to downsize to reduce our overheads and domestic chores and are looking for a smaller property here. Our villa is one of 15 modern houses at the end of a cul de sac on the edge of the Las Negras. This is a quiet and sunny location about 15 minutes walk to the village centre and beach. Above and beyond the houses are the hills and mountains of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata and below is the rambla, Aires de Las Negras, up which you can walk to the next village inland, Las Hortichuelas.

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 in the little coastal village of Las Negras in the heart of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. 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 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.
