Queues at Passport Control ??

Hi Digamites, has any one got up to date information about the queues at passport control as you are leaving  the air port, I have family flying in and the reports in the British press are not good.

Services –  More Convenient Food  in Competa- Sugar & Spice 

We are pleased to announce that from 4th September 2017 the food section of our shop will be managed by and based at

Todo Papel at Avenida de la Constitución, 31, Cómpeta.

Todo Papel will continue provide other items, such as greeting cards, second hand books and their package receiving and mailbox services.
When we opened  in 2005 we knew that to create a successful  business in a mountain village we were going to have to be what my Grandad would call “canny”.

Having the shop in the basement of our house made sense.  However being tucked away without vehicular access was not ideal and over the years the reoccurring message we have heard is “why can’t you move your shop to the bottom of the hill?” The answer has always been because groceries are a low margin product and it is not financially viable. Until now!

So what’s happening to the rest of Sugar and Spice?

Our shop at Calle Cazadores 12, on both sides of the road will remain with seasonal clothes and increased focus on our growing furniture, home decor and gifts business. The freed-up space will allow us to have more ranges of furniture on display and will be filled with lovely, interesting things. We have many new and exciting plans for the shop which we will be rolling out over the next few months, watch this space. So the shop will still be tucked away but we offer free local delivery on furniture so no need to drag your new TV cabinet back down the hill!

Services Available – Spanish and Paperwork Classes/Coaching

Do you want to learn Spanish or you have to deal with paperwork? As a Spanish teacher, people began to ask me to help them with Spanish paperwork. I enjoyed it because before I was a lawyer in Belgium. So I decided to mix the two activities . My idea is to make your life easier, teaching you how to deal with paperwork or coaching you step by step.

I offer different options at affordable prices.

If you need Spanish Lessons , I will help you too because – speaking Spanish will help you with your paperwork and in your daily life.
