Christmas Car Boot/Market. Sunday 16th December: At El Pantano Restaurant car park overlooking Lake Vinuela. 9.30am to 1pm.
Due to demand exceeding pitches available at this ever increasingly popular market, we have decided to hold a “one off” extra market on Sunday 16th December just because it is Christmas! Easy to find on the A356 towards Colmenar. Drive over the bridge crossing Lake Vinuela and the car park/bar is just ahead on the right hand side. Plenty of parking. There will bargains galore, old and new with lots of new sellers.
Come along and enjoy a morning browsing and picking up a few bargains for Christmas at this well established market, which attracts visitors from far and near. A super location. The restaurant has shaded terraces overlooking the lake and many customers sit and enjoy a coffee or a tapa and a drink and catch up with friends and acquaintances for a chat. Many even stay and choose lunch from the varied menu available.
Bar is open from 9.30am serving coffee/drinks/food. If you require any additional information,
please ring Sandy (Vinuela) on 619 471 301

Rehoming required: Meet PUCKY. This young puppy was abandoned by being tossed into my finca property about 6 weeks ago.
He has since then been lovingly cared for by having his first wormings and shots (parvovirus) as is suitable for his age which is now estimated at 4 months old. Pucky has had basic training now, and walks well on a lead alone or paired with another dog. He is obedient to simple commands and is very nearly fully housebroken. He is well socialized with people, other dogs and other animals. He’s a good looking, friendly, intelligent, healthy and playful side who is looking for a forever home where a well brought up pup will be appreciated.
If you would like to make an appointment to visit and see Pucky. Located in Algaŕrobo pueblo.
please contact Ellen: ellen.amos AT hotmail DOT com
