For Rent: Luxury Villa Available For July and August. Do you have friends who would love to come to our little piece of paradise this summer but haven’t found anything special? My attached villa in La Herradura, on the Punta de la Mona, is available for the months of July and August. This 2 bedroom, 2 and 1/2 bath condo has uninterrupted views to the sea. You can hear the ocean from the terraces. Both full baths are ensuite. This is ideal for a couple with an extra room for visiting guests. It’s a delightful 12 minute walk to the beach with glimpses of the sea along the way. We’ve got beach chairs, umbrella and towels waiting for you. Parking for 1 vehicle under a shaded portico is included. There is a community pool which services only 8 villas. Rent for one month will be 3000EU – which is less than 1000EU per week. A discount of 500EU will apply to a July renter who is able to stay for the second consecutive month. Water and electric are additional of course.
I am confident the villa will exceed your expectations. Photos are available for serious inquiries. I’m currently in the U.S. so please understand there may be a time delay in responding to your inquiry. I’m 9 hours earlier than you in Spain. Michelle, La Herradura, michellerabin@gmail.com

For Rent: Large lock up garage for storage 163sq mts, electricity, easy access, Torrox Pueblo. For more info John, casalevante1@gmail.com


    A Very Informative Article: The EU Ushers In The Internet 2.0 and Beyond, by DoctorLaptop.
…Many of you will have recently encountered blocked websites and videos or new “before you proceed” messages while you are websurfing. This is due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws that just went into effect in the EU. Some US based websites are blocking EU residents from accessing content, often displaying a server error message. Social media sites are demanding you accept new, very intrusive user agreements before letting you in. Some radio streams and podcasts display a message saying the content is unavailable in your location. Google searches are being censored for EU residents, filtering out previously available content, with many news articles now blocked…

Hairdresser. I have recently used Sarah Miles to cut and blow dry my thick, curly hair. She cut it perfectly, not easy with my hair and did the blow dry just as I wanted. She listened to what I wanted. Jill, Sayalonga 660 146 302
Contact Sarah: 0044 744 359 8783 or sarah2407 @ msn.com (leave out spaces)

Windows: We have a terrace on the first floor with very large windows and fly screens and getting the windows cleaned and the flyscreens re-meshed has been a real problem. So having had success I would like to recommend:
Adrian, who used ropes and harness to make sure he could reach all the windows safely and did a very thorough job. He also does many other jobs round the home and garden is a welder. Thoroughly recommended. whatsapp 617233404
Steve, who did the ‘impossible’ and took out the huge flyscreens despite all obstacles (arches, balustrades), replaced the mesh, and put the screens back quickly and efficiently. Made a hard job look easy. whatsapp 653303698
