La Parada  tapas bar – what a welcome addition to Torrox pueblo.

A delightful Spanish couple offering a wonderful range of fresh tapas

Recommendation- Veterinarian

I would like to recommend this fantastic veterinarian, Patricia, for the quality of its services, its abordable prices, its availability and its kindness.
A strong professional who has saved my small pet (seriously bitten with deep rifts and a large loss of blood).

La casa Morada

Recommendation- Casa El Castaño near Martos, Jaen.

Recently an advertisement was place here on Digame for a short break to Casa El Castaño near Martos, Jaen.
We decided to contact the owners, a lovely couple by the names of Sharon and Chris, for more info and thank our lucky stars we did!
We have just returned from that very said break and want to let everyone know they would be hard pushed to find a better place if you are wanting peace, tranquility and chill out time.  All that said, the hosts are the most perfect and delightful couple and continually strive to make your break relaxing from beginning to end.  The setting of Casa El Castaño in amongst the olive groves is another world from the hum drum way of normal life.
For this reason, this couple deserve a mention and a bouquet for offering services with that extra special touch and going that extra mile and making you feel so special.  We shall most definitely be returning.
We are in no way connected or related to Casa El Castaño or its owners.
Lorraine and Tom, 2 extremely satisfied ( soon to be returning) guests!

For sale- First Class Bed and Breakfast in The Alpujarras

Anyone fancy running a first class Bed And Breakfast in The Alpujarras?

We went for a day out on Monday and dropped in on Válor for a gorgeous

lunch at a restaurant on the main road.

The views from the town were so stunning we decided to stay overnight and booked into Los Arcos, next to the Church.

We were so impressed we told the owners we would be back with friends, but they announced they were retiring in September, and will be downsizing,

so the business is for sale.

If I was 20 years younger I might have considered it …so, any Digamites fancy running a B&B?

Lovely place to stay if you visit the Alpujarras before September (if they have any rooms available!)

New Rules to Remember (and abide by….)

There are several days per week now when I have to spend over 5 hours processing submissions & readying our Blog for publication – that’s more than I want to cope with! hence the following advice……

Bars, Restaurants & Clubs –

Please limit your entries to One per Week!

I suggest you list your programme of events & send it Tues/ Weds for inclusion in the Thursday Issue.

Identification Information for Everyone

I will not be able to publish your entries unless you have included your name, location & contact information ( phone number &/or email address)

I had 8 (!) people email me today without this information. Unbelievable!

Faulty Submissions.

If I have time, I can email you to ask for corrections, extra info. etc. etc.

However, if I don’t have the time then your email will simply be deleted on

a daily basis along with all the others received that day.

Negative Reviews

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

For Sale Items – Repeats

No repeats accepted under 4 weeks & pictures unusable unless in JPEG format.

Photos take up much of my time – downloading, resizing, copying and retrieving to put in the ads

Nevertheless, wouldn’t be without them !

Deadline for  Items in 4pm daily – to this address (janekirkspain@gmail.com)

The decision about what to publish is mine,

if I don’t want to publish then I won’t

Please do not type whole words IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

Only the first letter can be in Upper Case.
