What WAS on Farm Walk and Tea Postponed…..

to Monday 6th February

The afternoon tea and farm walk through flowering almonds at Casa Montes Negros was scheduled to take place this Saturday 4th February.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast for Saturday and Sunday is rain and high winds.

However Monday looks like a beautiful sunny day, so we have decided to move the walk and tea to Monday 6th February instead.

The meeting up time will be at 3 o’clock instead of 3.30. If you have booked already, and haven’t received an email or Whatsapp about the change of date, please do contact me to let me know if you are still able to attend. We do still have some places available for the new date too.

Ring/Whatsapp/text Rachael on 0034 655 987 105 or drop me an email on casamontesnegros at gmail.com

What’s on- Jukebox Bandits


Hi folks, Jukebox Bandits are playing 100% live at El Rincon de Mateo in Canillas de Albaida on the actual Valentine’s Night, Tuesday Feb 14th.

Jukebox Bandits are: Rod Jones on keyboards and vocals, Ian Hayton on acoustic guitar, bass and vocals, Marshall Dixon on drums, percussion and vocals and Mitch France on guitars, banjo, mandolin and vocals.

They play an eclectic mix of pop, rock and folk standards from Britain, America, Ireland and Spain. From Dire Straits to The Dubliners, from Manu Chao to Jason Mraz. The music starts mellow (whilst people are eating), gradually picking up the tempo and culminating with the dance set including standards like Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”, REM’s “Losing My Religion” and The Mavericks’ “Dance the Night Away”.

Hope to see you there

Rod, Ian, Marsh & Mitch
