Manilva – great place to visit


Interest Free credit at Carrefour

September 28th, 2011

You know what it’s like, everything always goes wrong at once and most of us don’t have €400 readily available to buy a new washing machine. Well, at last Spain is catching up with the UK and many of the larger shops are offering finance options. One of the best at the moment is from […]


Marina del Castillo, Exquisite Penthouse

September 28th, 2011

Wow! This apartment made a huge impact on me. I was concerned at first when I was sent to view it and take photos. Its a property on a beach-side development but described as having no sea views. So I went reluctantly, a little disappointed. However, to my amazement, I can seriously say it is […]


Chiringuito El Paseo – Sabinillas

September 27th, 2011

A few weeks ago there was a slight blip in the weather and we had to choose a chiringuito that had windows! Chiringuito El Paseo has been at the end of Sabinillas beach (located opposite La Noria 3) for over 12 years. I recall it was here, that my son, then aged 4, had his […]

Chirringuito – El Garito de Juan – Duquesa

September 22nd, 2011

Yet another Friday and yet another Chirringuito lunch. As much as I love fish and Chirringuitos, I’m actually quite looking forward to our “winter” lunches and our “tour of the ventas” Last Friday, it was the turn of El Garito de Juan which can be found on the beach adjacent to the Don Juan aparthotel […]
