O’Learys Irish Bar:
-Saturday night, Dec 15th, 9pm, White Lamb are back to rock our bar! These lads are unbelievable so don’t miss this one!
-Christmas Dinner. Ok guys, the big day is creeping up on us very fast so it’s time for everyone who’s booked in with us to pop in or msg us with their course selection for each course. The menu is in our posts and on our wall in the bar.
We still have a few spaces left so anyone on the fence needs to hurry and get a deposit to us before we’re full!
We still have a few places for our NEW YEARS EVE menu but those are also very limited! Paseo Marítimo de Ferrara, Torrox Costa

Locally filmed TV: Channel 4’s A Place in the Sun has filmed a brand new episode in Competa, Archez, Sayalonga and Canillas de Albaida and this show will be broadcast on Friday 14th Dec at 5pm (Spanish time) on C4.

Hotel Rural Cortijo Amaya: It´s the festive season again!
Are you having family or fiends visiting you and you´re short in beds? Or are you looking for a place to escape those days and instead enjoy some quality me- or we time? Or even: are you still looking for an accommodation for your group party? We still have rooms available around X-Mas and New Year and we can accommodate groups up to 26 people.
We offer clean air conditioned/heated rooms, free wifi, breakfast buffet with eggs to the order, a 24/7 honesty bar and… a large garden with various terraces and beautiful views. All this at less than 1 km from the sea side but yet in a surprisingly quiet area.
For more information please call us or visit our website or facebook page
We look forward to welcoming you! Saskia and Vince, Cortijo Amaya


Vehicle Electrician or Vehicle Sound Technician Required: I am looking for any recommendations for a mobile Vehicle Electrician or Vehicle Sound Technician who is conversant and competent with installing and wiring several electrical items into a a 2009 Land Rover Puma Defender 110 to a professional standard.
An upgraded sound system has been fitted already but this now requires new speakers to be fitted.
Angel eye LED Headlight kit incorporating Halo DRL’s ( I want the DRL’s to automatically illuminate whilst driving during the day and to automatically dim / extinguish when headlights are switched on)
8 x LED work lights on roof-rack (4 rear facing and 4 x forward facing)
A central locking kit wired in.
A front electric window kit wired into the front doors.
Only someone who genuinely & technically competent as well as knowing exactly what they are doing need contact me.
I have started the project myself but due to health deterioration problems, I need someone professionally capable to finish the job off.
The vehicle needs to pass a Spanish Homologation inspection after the work plus the ensuing obligatory homologation ITV inspection.
At the moment the vehicle does not have a current ITV so is not legally drivable on the road but is in full working order.
I am not looking for a cheap or cut price job, I am more interested in locating the right person who can carry out the required work carefully and professionally, to a good standard.
