I am a writer so somewhere quite is essential. Preferably two bedrooms with outside space and within 15mins drive of Torrox area. Max €500 per month depending on size & location. I can pay a lump sum up front if needed. Looking to move early December.

El Varadero in Nerja? : Does anyone know if the Christmas market at El Varadero in Nerja will be on this year again? if so, could you let me have some contact details of the organisers?
Thanks, Wendy, Sedella (wendy.sedella@hotmail.com)

Torrox Pueblo Pool: There are many who have been affected by the closure of the Nerja pool. It would appear that most people have found the pool in Torrox Pueblo to be as good if not better than Nerja. It can be found easily by going up to the Pueblo from the BP Station, turn right to the football stadium, continue through the car park and turn right. The swimming pool is on the lower level.
