About your host:
“I grew up among threads, fabrics, brushes, canvases from my mum who was a painter and the smell of wood from my father’s carpentry.
Creating has been my interest and my nature so I soon began to design and sew my own clothes. I love to paint and draw and prefer not to set limits to anything. I studied Fine Arts in Valencia and Artistic Ceramics in the School of Arts and Crafts of Castellón.
I never stop thinking of creating new experiences. And I am eager sharing these arts with you.
I live in the Vilafames area. I like the village life, its people, its small streets, its mountains and what nature offers us. Living here is just like a little daily pampering”
Its rich heritage can be felt as you wander through the streets, where you can feel the influence of history, culture, gastronomy and the environment. Vilafamés is halfway between the Spanish east coastal zone of the Orange Blossom Coast (Costa Azahar), north of Valenica and the mountainous hinterland.
The old part of Vilafames is of Muslim origin, dating to around the 11th century. The remains of this period are the foundations of the castle and the enchanting urban layout, of winding, narrow streets. Whitewashed houses are enhanced and highlighted by pretty plants, which contribute to the town’s special ambience.
