Information on Camino El Chorro

Just to let you all know what is happening with the Camino in El Chorro.

The website will be up and running again from the 18th April. The walk will be open from the 22nd. The tickets will cost 10€ each.

There is talk that local businesses will be able to have a allocation of tickets, we will of course pass these on to our clients if we get them.

We are still offering the 2 nights B&B with 1 night evening meal and wine for 100€  If we can get the tickets for you we will. As we are a small establishment I suggest you book your rooms before you  order your tickets, we will always swap around if possible.

We are also offering an extra night at 40€ and can combine it with the walk and for the more adventurous quad biking and or horse riding.

Hope to see you soon

Services Available-Air Conditioning

Polar Air recently installed a new Samsung aircon/heating unit in our bedroom to replace a 12-year-old irretrievably broken one.

A revelation!  Quiet enough not to wake my tetchy husband, competitively priced and cheap to run, and the remote control is so easy to use.

You can also have a sensor which can detect movement in the room and switch the unit off if the room is empty for twenty minutes.

Peter and Darren worked quickly and cheerfully and cleared up beautifully afterwards.

Recommendation –Removals

I would just like to recommend  Euroam, for removals Spain/UK/Spain,

What a fantastic job they did for my wife and myself at the end of March

  1.  Within 10 daysthey brought our things straight to my door in the UK

from Torrox, Spain.

The cost was very reasonable, quite surprising  really, these days.

If any Digamite is travelling to the UK or thinking of Spain as their new home then please think about  Euroam before leaving.

The main man is called Tony Roam, very polite and efficient to say the least, all done and dusted in no time.

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