About David and Angeles
My wife Angeles who is Spanish and I (David) English bought our Finca “El Figueral” in 2004, intent on moving to Spain at the earliest time possible time. Due to several factors including my business in the UK, Angeles passion for teaching psychology to 6th form students and the boy’s education (we have 5) it took us until January 2015 to finally take up permanent residence. Driven by my passion for fishing and Angeles desire to practice psychology we had to find a rural property that offered peace and quiet with unique and magnificent views and of course private access to the River Ebro. We now supplement our income by offering rural family and fishing holidays, mindfulness day and residential courses and the sale of our single estate unique extra virgin organic olive oil. We are lucky to have a second family villa some 35km outside of Valencia which we relocate too from July to September, which allows us to offer El figueral exclusively for family holidays.
David and Angeles purchased this Farmhouse in 2004
Why David and Angeles chose Benifallet
In 2003 we started looking for a unique rural property with access to the River Ebro to indulge my passion for fishing and as previously mentioned Angeles desire to run mindfulness courses in a quiet calm location. We holidayed and investigated many properties along the course of the river ebro until we stumbled across El Figueral in 2004, it took less than a minute for us to decide that this was our dream. As they say location ,location,.... The views overlooking a spectacular valley with the river ebro gloriously running through it were magic. The property consisted 80,000 sqm of farm land on the banks of the River Ebro growing mandarins and peaches with an old 90 sqm farmhouse needing some love and attention on two floors. A farm house of sorts had stood on this location for over 400 years and indeed provided front line accommodation with magnificent views for the International Brigade during the Spanish civil war! El Figueral offered us the perfect location to build our dream house and provide additional income from sharing our dream.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We love El Figueral’s isolated location sitting high up looking down on the magnificent steep sided Ebro valley, its closeness to the friendly riverside village of Benifallet, its closeness to the many small fishing villages and beaches of the Costa Dorada and Ebro Delta, the miles of beautiful walks through unspoilt countryside or cycling the old railway track. So much to do, So relaxing. We are kept busy with the businesses, trying to catch an even bigger fish, flying up and down the Ebro on one of the motor boats and maintaining El Figueral which is a never-ending labour of love; we have changed our crop three times from mandarins to peached to Olives. There is always something to do, but at the end of the day there’s the pool, the views, a glass of wine, good music or a trip to Benifallet to relax. Benifallet has around 750 very friendly and welcoming residents, it’s very much a farming village, as is evidenced by the stream of tractors that pass by while you’re sitting outside one of the bars drinking a glass of wine or beer. Life here is easy-going, indeed slow when comparing Benifallet lifestyle with city life “the real Spain”. However, for a small village on the banks of the River Ebro, Benifallet has an extraordinary selection of very good restaurants and bars 6 in total that bring dinners from the surrounding towns and villages to sample their local dishes. Try the Xiringuito they have an excellent menu of the day, for the uninitiated, a four-course meal with wine for around €12.00, they also provide an exceptional a la carte menu. Pepo’s hotel, Brasserie Rosa Mari, Carl Miguel, Ca Treig and Cal Ferrer a small bar just off the river where we meet guests. Indeed, many of the ex-pats in the village came for a holiday and never left. To quote an ex-pat “An essential part of being here and experiencing village life is a beaming smile and an “Hola!” or “Bon dia!” to everyone you pass in the street. Just about sums it up.
