In an earlier blog, I mentioned that we had two fabulous bargains of the week.  They are both priced at 110,000 Euros and both represent great value for money.  The two properties are in Terrazas de Guadalupe and Balcones de los Hidalgos.  Read here for a previous post on Terrazas de Guadalupe.

Parque La Paloma Benalmedena

October 21st, 2011

Now that it is not quite warm enough to spend the day on the beach (or, you are all beached out!), families are turning to the many beautiful parks in our area to spend the day.  One such park is Parque La Paloma in Benalmedena. It’s about a 50 minute drive from us in Manilva but well […]

 

Elemi Estepona

October 21st, 2011

Last week we went a little further afield for lunch and went to Elemi in Estepona.  Elemi can be found on Avenida de España, just down from the entrance to the port and opposite the bull ring.  Elemi is a completely vegetarian restaurant but don’t feel that you have to be a vegetarian to eat there…The menu […]

 

Roast dinners are back!!

October 21st, 2011

Even though we live in Spain, some English traditions just have to continue and  a Sunday Roast is one of them. However, even this tradition has to take a break from June to September as its simply too hot to have the oven on at all, let alone during the middle of the day! I […]

Amazon.es

October 14th, 2011

At last there is a Spanish amazon site. But, like many others, I assumed it would be far more expensive than the UK site, even taking into account the postage to Spain. However, it appears I was wrong…. My daughter needed to get a copy of “Pride and Prejudice” in English for her English studies. […]

 

The old traditions continue……

October 14th, 2011

I had a few spare minutes this morning (a rare occurrence) so decided to walk to the office along the paseo. I noticed a few people coming off of the beach and when I got closer, realised they were fisherman. They carried their “catch” in a large bucket. A few moments later, one of the […]

 

Residencial Duquesa – Sabinillas

October 13th, 2011

I have often written about Residential Duquesa (see Residential Duquesa, The Place to Be and Ten Reasons why we think you should buy on Residential Duquesa), however it still strikes me as a great deal.  Take a look at this video of the show apartment: With the cheapest priced at 120,000 Euros for a two […]
