Please Help ! Emergency

My friend and animal lover, Simon Serls, needs our help to immediately find another campo/Competa 2 bdr. finca with a little land at reasonable long-term, monthly rental.

He must be out in two days! His animals always come first.

People who know Simon as a fixture in the Competa Plaza know his devotion to his animals and all animals.

Please, super please, if you have or know of a place he can occupy close to Competa for his animals and himself, please e-mail him at simonserls   @  gmail dot com .

This is a real emergency as he has fallen  on some bad times but can afford reasonable long-term rental.

Thank you, Robert Stephenson, Competa.



El Recreo, Torrox Costa

Dear Digamites,

Everyone seems to have a different story to tell about “El Recreo”, the green roofed house behind Aldi in Torrox Costa, and its links to Franco, Hitler and Eva Braun.

(Or to give her full name, Eva Anna Paula Hitler)

It all seems steeped in mystery and politics, because why is it not on the tourist trail?

Is there a Digamite who knows the actual truth and is willing to share their knowledge with us all?



Editor writes – How intriguing !

Please send your responses to :

janekirkspain at gmail.com     & I’ll gladly publish them. Jane



Getting to Benidorm….

We have family living in Benidorm whom we visit once a year.

We normally go by car but it is such a long boring journey we are now thinking of trying other ways. Especially as the family live so central, we never use the car once we get there. Can anyone suggest a better alternative please? We were hoping to fly but there seem to be no direct route via Malaga?

I am Helene from Vinuela and my email is:
