Meet Chris Stewart, the eternal optimist.At age 17 Chris retired as the drummer of Genesis and launched a career as a sheep shearer and travel writer. He has no regrets about this. Had he become a big-time rock star he might never have moved with his wife Ana to a remote mountain farm in Andalucia. Nor forged the friendship of a lifetime with his resourceful peasant neighbour Domingo...not watched his baby daughter Chloë grow and thrive there...nor written this book.Fate does sometimes seem to know what it's up to.Driving Over Lemons is that rare thing: a funny, insightful book that charms you from the first page to the last...and one that makes running a peasant farm in Spain seem like a distinctly gd move. Chris transports us to Las Alpujarras, an oddball region south of Granada, and into a series of misadventures with an engaging mix of peasant farmers and shepherds, New Age travellers and ex-pats. The hero of the piece, however, is the farm that he and Ana bought, El Valero - a patch of mountain studded with olive, almond and lemon groves, sited on the wrong side of a river, with no access road, water supply or electricity.Could life offer much better than that?… (mere)

Really enjoyable story of Chris and his wife Ana who relocated to a remote farm in Spain ( )

A lovely book: unpretentious, light in the best way, and delicately observed. It is kept from toppling into something more saccharine by the sometimes grim details of Andalucian life and culture -- vegetarians might find themselves wanting to look away from some of the depictions of mealtimes, and people sensitive to violence toward animals might want to avoid the account of pig-killing. It is absolutely one of those books that will have you looking around at your own rat-race trappings (if, like me, you're tangled in them) and wishing for something a bit more elemental and close to the Earth. Very enjoyable. ( )

Una pareja de ingleses deciden venderlo todo y venirse a vivir a la Alpujarra. Se compran el cortijo de El Valero y se dedican a arreglarlo. A pesar de parecer un tema tan anodino, el autor escribe tan bien que es una gloria leerlo. Cuenta mil historias de pastores y constructores, de ganaderos y de agricultores. Chris Stewart tiene talento y los libros se leen solos. En total tiene cinco escritos, a cual más divertido. Muy recomendable. Por aquí he comentado un par de ellos. ( )

A British couple decide to move to Spain and try their hand at farming. They end up buying a decrepit, run-down farm in the middle of nowhere. The author shares their story of moving, rebuilding and living their life in Spain. Recommended - read this for the 2015 reading challenge: based on a true story ( )

Entre limones es una de esas cosas raras y maravillosas: un libro divertido e intuitivo que encanta desde la primera página a la última…y es que alguien que, sin tener ni idea y sin pensárselo dos veces, se mete a reconstruir y llevar un cortijo en un rincón perdido de una sierra de España, claramente no puede estar haciendo nada malo. Chris nos transporta a Las Alpujarras, una excéntrica región del sur de Granada (España), y nos mete en una serie de contratiempos con una combinación simpática de granjeros y pastores campesinos, viajeros New Age y expatriados.

'Well, this is no good, I don't want to live here!' I said as we drove along yet another tarmac road behind a row of white-washed houses.

I laid bare for him the fripperies of our existence. It seemed somehow wanting when compared with the elemental earthiness of his.
