Elke and Guy

Hola! We are Elke and Guy and run a bed and breakfast under the Andalusian sun: Casa Utopia in the “real” Spanish village of Alcaucin. Our search started in 2015, in fact we had a bed and breakfast in the Ardennes that we operated as a secondary occupation. We were only open on weekends, during the week we each had our job.  After first visiting several regions in Spain we came to the conclusion that the region of East Málaga, the Axarquia, was really our thing. In the mountains and close to the sea. In the meantime, we went to evening school to master the Spanish language.
Gerda, a classmate, introduced us to take a look at the website of Patricia and Geert, after all, she and her husband Herman had found their dream place through Andalucia Vastgoed. Out of all the houses that were there, 1 stood out for us, large, 20 ares, and also with a second small house that we could for ourselves so that we had our own place next to the b & b.
Meanwhile our b & b in the Ardennes was sold and we could start our new project. We were assisted by Geert and Patricia to arrange all paperwork in collaboration with the local lawyers and notary.
The buildings were given a thorough makeover by a Spanish contractor, Geert was our project manager who coordinated everything and every Wednesday we received an update and 30 photos, which was a nice surprise for us every time to see how everything evolved.

In June 2017 we participated in the TV program “4 in one bed”, the icing on the cake was that we ended the Andalusian week as winners!
