Wire haired German Pointer Looking for a home

TAIL Torrox is looking for a home for this beautiful boy Amadeus. He is 6 yrs old wired haired German pointer (Bosque de Bohemia ), weighs about 28kg and is 62cm high. He is a very gentle boy who has very low level Leishmaniosis so needs a daily tablet. He walks very well on the lead and currently is a house dog at the refuge in Torrox Costa. If you would like to meet this very friendly boy please email ogillyarmstead@gmail.com or call 633405560.     Ideally we would like a permanent home but fostering would also be possible.     Thank you

Services Needed- Spanish Lessons

Is there anyone who knows of Spanish Classes running around the Nerja and Torrox Costa area; last spring I was attending two classes, one in the local college in Nerja, the other in the cultural centre, Calle Diputacion. The latter closed because of re-construction plans for that site. Please let me know by email?  Aktrees2@aol.com    Many thanks.

Services-Casa Magel B&B

Casa Magel will be closed from 25th September until 15th October 2017   We still have vacancies until the 25th September & again after 15th October when our special offer of 2 nights B&B with 1 night evening meal for 2 including wine will be available, in a double en suite room 100€  Casa Magel lies on the edge of the typical Spanish town of Valle De Abdalajis.    We are surrounded by beautiful countryside with views of the mountains, yet only a 15 minute walk into the town where there are many bars serving meals and tapas, you really get a feel of how the Spanish live.Valle De Abdalajis stems from the Roman period when it was known as Nescania, conquered by the Moorish leader Abdalajis. We have a lovely museum showing the town over the centuries. There are many places nearby to visit, The Wolf park, boasts the most species of Wolves living in the wild in Europe. Convento Magdalena, is a beautiful 12th Century Convent lovingly restored and now run as a 5* hotel. Antequera a magnificent town that has the most churches in Spain …27… Overlooked by the famous Indian head mountain, where legend has it that a Moorish princess fell in love with a Christian soldier and they were forbidden to marry, so ran away together to the mountain, they were chased by her father’s army and so rather than be separated, they jumped to their death. Locals say some nights you can hear their cries. Then there is El Torcal, the highest point in the area, strange rock formations which were formed millions of years ago when it was under water, cover the land, a sight to behold.    In the other direction you will find Caminito Del Rey in El Chorro, a major tourist attraction, dare you do the walk!!!! Also close by are the fantastic turquoise lakes of Ardales, where you can just sit and watch the world go by, or swim in the cool clear waters. Hire pedallos or eat in the many restaurants of the area.   2 nights, is it enough ? Maybe book an extra night of the special price of 50€ per room. Autumn is on it’s way, what better than a nice break in a lovely room, lots to do and see, then back to a peaceful garden to sit by the pool, G&T in hand and wait for a lovely home cooked meal.    Makes great birthday or anniversary treat.                                                                                      Contact us Casa Magel@yahoo.com, 0034 628519862 website www.casamagel.com
