Thanks for Advice

Thank you so much for taking the time to give advice on this tax, known as the ‘Bargain hunters tax’.  It is such a disgrace that you should be taxed on something you haven’t paid for….. I mean you wouldn’t pay VAT/IVA on the difference that you should have paid for getting a new kitchen for in the sales!?!  We had no warning about this from our solicitor and when the forms did arrive, she said that it wasn’t a matter for her, as it is a Fiscal matter and should be dealt with by an accountant in her office! obviously charging us more money!  We will fight it and let you know how we get on.  All the best.

fits well with Spanish and UK lifestyles, as well as being in the UK for a few weeks supplementing
their income they also get to visit family and friends – its the prefect balance.

Four of us visited for the first time on February 29, 2016. Had a wonderful meal and very friendly atmosphere.

The menu has plenty of choices and is  quite different from the norm.

Highly recommended.

Well done David and Georgiana (hope I got the spelling correct).

Wishing you great success.

We enjoyed our recent stay at Casa Magel, and the hospitality of Maggie and Elio… friendly but not intrusive. Comfortable and roomy accommodation, with great home cooking… Beats any hotel!

It’s convenient for the Torcal d’Antiquera, the Lobos Park, the flamingos at Fuente de Piedra, the Garganta de El Chorro, and of course the Caminito del Rey when it reopens in April.

What’s On – Capistrano Film Forum

Invitation to the Film Forum is open to all residents of Capistrano and their guests.

The next film is:
Friday, March 4th            Robinson Crusoe (1954)
(Mexico – 90 min.) Adventure novel by Daniel Defoe. Directed by Luis Buñuel –

On 30 September 1659, British aristocrat Robinson Crusoe (Dan O’Herlihy) survives a shipwreck and he is washed ashore on a desert island somewhere near South America. He saves a dog, Rex, and cat, Sam, from the shipwreck and retrieves some supplies: weapons, clothes and tools, and builds a shelter. He survives by learning to cook and to farm and to harvest the crops. Then his loneliness begins to haunt him, especially after the loss of Rex. When he sees a group of cannibals on the island, tension and fearenter his life. After he saves the life of a savage (Jaime Fernández), who was about to be eaten by the cannibals, he names him Friday and they become friends.

When Robinson Crusoe sees Caucasians on the island, he learns that Captain Oberzo (Felipe de Alba) had been the victim of a mutiny and he helps him to retrieve his ship.

Of the many great films of Luis Bunuel, Robinson Crusoe is perhaps his most neglected, but in my view, it is one of his very best movies. Defoe’s story of an emissary of white, Christian civilization suddenly alone in the universe and having to fend for himself, is a  metaphor from which to explore the human condition and spirit, thrust into a world where, if there is a God, he (or she) is seemingly powerless to help or intervene. In English (some Spanish).

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
