We are a German-English family with three children, Amber the horse, Tuna the dog, Donkey the donkey, and a number of chickens and cats. We speak five languages at home: English, Spanish, German, Gallego, and Danish.
We (Emmely Föhring and Paul Baker) moved to the land in 1993 with the idea of creating a sustainable future in harmony with nature for our children and other like-minded people.
There is an English Estate Agency in Galicia whose owner has been there for thirty nine years. He is the only English estate agent in Galicia. Whatsmore he knows the country and countryside properties like the palm of his hand, having worked in rural areas all his life. His name is Mark Adkinson, he lives in a lovely house that he and his wife bought as a ruin and restored completely themselves. You can see it in the section “where we live”. As far as we know Mark is the only person with rural property for sale that actually lives in a rural house, (many agents live in high rise) and certainly the only person who has actually done ALL the restoration on his own house. Mark specializes in renovation properties.
