Meet our friend Annalisa Turner, a gorgeous woman who decided to challenge herself and leave a very comfortable life in Sydney to move to this tiny village, Cervera Del Maestre, half way between Barcelona and Valencia. The fact that the local church had a black Madona could have had something to do with her decision. Annalisa’s grandmother left her a small black Madona that now lives beside her bed.
Teaching herself spanish, introducing yoga to the village, letting rooms in her house out on Airbnb, Annalisa’s days are full but not easy.
We spent two days with her and met the people who have become her new extended family. The small bars in the village are at the heart of life, the fabulous older farmers drop by with olives and fruit off their trees followed by some sage advise.
If you would like to experience an authentic village experience do a bit of yoga and meet the locals visit Annalisa on Airbnb.
