Student Accommodation – Advice Please 

My stepson (20) hopes to start an IT course in September and we’re looking at various options. Centres offering the course include Vélez-Málaga, Torrox, Málaga and Periana.
Does anyone know:
1 – If there is a student hostel in Málaga, and if so either costs or contact details?
2 – If there is/will be a room in a house we could rent cheaply, in any of the other locations?
Any information would be gratefully received.
Please reply to vitruvianman @ outlook. es (removing spaces).
Many thanks,

Services Available –

This last academic year there have been free Spanish lessons run by Torrox ayuntamiento in the small school behind Lew’s cafe (formerly Lew’s fish and chips).

Sergio is the teacher and he needs as many registrations for next years class in order to justify the class. This years term finishes next Wed. but he will be there until the end of June for registration and enquiries.

This year we had 7 hours of lessons per week and we need at least a dozen people to register.

If your Spanish needs improving please register. You are not obligated to attend every lesson but go when you can. Make new friends as well.

Sorry I don’t have Sergio’s number but I will try to post it later this week, or my number is 618495346.

Recommendation-Restaurant Sollun – Nerja

We have just discovered this excellent restaurant in Calle Pintada, Nerja.  The food is fantastic and for us this is the best restaurant we have found in the area.  It’s not cheap by local standards, but it offers beautifully presented, tasty food and for us was well worth every euro.   The chef and owner is very friendly and exudes enthusiasm for the food he prepares.   If you enjoy large portions and always want your food served with potatoes or rice it won’t be for you.  If you go, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did – Linda

Recommendations Needed –Dealing with Ants

The perennial problem of ants seems to be worse this year, at least in my neck of the woods.

Can any Digamites recommend any product or chemical which actually works to eradicate ant colonies? I have tried a couple of proprietary products which claimed to do so, but with no visible success.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.   Steve
