Casa Magel B&B, September – November special: Complimentary bubbly on arrival. 2 nights B&B choice of continental or English breakfast. 1 night 3-course meal with wine for 2 sharing a double room. 100€. Maybe possible to get tickets for Caminito Del Rey El Chorro if you book early. This is a good time to visit the wolf park 15 mins away as the wolves are more visible as the weather cools and they do full moon howling at night. Pop into Convento Magdalena next door and soak up the peaceful atmosphere with a nice glass of wine. Many nice walks all around, our little Roman town is a 15-minute walk away, with a very nice museum, good tapas bars. So much to do and see and then relax by the pool while our chef cooks you a delicious meal. We have a limited honesty bar or bring your own drinks. Full kitchen facilities for guest use. Terrace & BBQ. Pretty Gardens, lovely pool, yummy food, great hosts, fantastic views. Who could ask for anything more for 100€ for 2?

Dancing & Exercise: Latin Dance Classes in Velez; starting on Tues. October 2 at 8:00pm. Studies show that dancing and especially learning or brushing up on steps is the ultimate form of body and brain exercises. Join us for 90 minutes weekly on Tuesdays for sharing a fun activity with same minded people. Francisco Sanchez, a Spanish instructor and Norma, his English speaking assistant, will inspire you to move to such Latin dances as Meringue, Salsa, Cha Cha Cha and Bachata. We will not rush to teach you complicated steps. These lessons are for individuals or couples who want to better understand 1) the basics of the body moving to music, 2) how to center yourself, 3) how to establish your center of gravity, 4) how to transfer your weight gracefully and 5) how to express in movements what the music conveys. But most importantly 6) how to feel joyful while moving to music and sharing this joy with others. Students will rotate partners to acquire maximum skills. All welcome!! Boost your oxygen intake and meet new friends. The monthly fee upon registration is for singles: 20€; for couples: 35€. For more details you can reply to norma2kk @ aol.com (no spaces); we looking forward to hearing from you!!
