21 Sept – 7 Oct – Petsit in Vera SPAIN 1 dog and 1 cat
Eva has been with me since 2022. She was abused and kept locked in a yard with 3 other larger dogs, so had never been out walking on a lead or house trained. She was very nervous when she first came to me but after a year she is gradually getting her confidence and can be loving when she wants to be. She is still very wary of people, especially of children, until she gets to know them. However, she is becoming more comfortable in company and has made many doggy friends now but is very wary when she meets new dogs. Sophie is a typical cat in that she is very independent and can be vocal especially at feeding time.
I have a 3 bedroom duplex (terraced house) in a small community of just 41 houses. There is a communal swimming pool to enjoy in the warmer weather which lasts well into October here. We have good Wi-Fi.
OUR LOCAL AREA
We are situated between the towns of Vera and Garrucha; and we are only 1 hour by bus to Mojacar if you take the bus from Vera. There are many beaches to enjoy in the area. The nearest beach is about 10 min by car, 30-45 minutes if you are on foot. There are some basic amenities with a variety of shops and services, plus a supermarket and a friendly bar just a short 5 minute walk from home. There is also a bicycle shop where you can hire bikes for a modest fee.
VERA the town – is split between the main town area which is inland, and the beach area. The town is small but does have a weekly farmers market and several independent shops.
GARRUCHA – is a fishing village with many good typical restaurants serving locally caught fish, including the famous Garrucha Prawns! They are not cheap but worth checking out at least once.
MOJACAR – is also split like Vera between the town and beach areas. The village itself is a little way inland and at a higher altitude has amazing views.
LOCAL MARKETS – The farmers and local markets are all held in the mornings between 10 am – 1 pm.
Pueblo – Wednesday
Garrucha – Friday
Vera – Saturday
