Parcent - May 2005

The purpose of this visit was to sort out some paperwork with the solicitor, and select tiles and kitchen fittings with the builder.

We booked a hotel in Benedorm for a week and hired a car. So we could travel up to Parcent each day to walk around the area and see what progress had been made with the house. We also took the opportunity to measure various rooms to see what furniture would fit.

Not a lot of progress with the front of the house. Still looking pretty much like we first saw it. This is also the least impressive angle of the house to view, as it looks like a very small bungalow from the front.

Taken from the next house down. The house is taking shape, but its very difficult to picture what the swimming pool will look like (on the right of the photo)

Jan is standing at the bottom of the back of the house, where the swimming pool will be.

There is only one street in Arenal. There are about 30 houses from an earlier build. All occupied, and for some time by the look of them.

The view directly ahead from our balcony. This was to be our screen saver for many months until we finally moved to Spain.

Jan looking to the left on the balcony. Lovely views down the valley towards Jalon and the mountains beyond.

The view to the right from the balcony is towards Orba and again the mountains beyond.
