Christine has exceptional organisational skills, extensive local knowledge and a genuine care to help people in all aspects of their move to Spain, saving them time on the ground and enabling a smoother arrival and settling in period.
“Every family is different and therefore we first take the time to understand who you are and what is most important for your sabbatical in Spain. From there we can tailor our research and advice to suit your requirements and budget. Having experienced our own year away and worked with many families over the years, we have gained in-depth knowledge and experience about what to consider and look out for when planning a year abroad.”
