I too live in the campo surrounded by farmers of livestock and vegetables. Have all utilities connected and water is potable so not quite country bumkins.
Because there are excellent tarmaced access roads I can be in Lorca City within 10 minutes where there is an abundance of upmarket shops,museums, a University and even a castle.
No metro though but do have two train stations.
Also in recent years one has seen loads of solar panels erected. Not pretty but they are neat.
You name it.We have it.
