How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Long Term Rental: 6-7 Month Rental in La Herradura
Do you know anyone who is interested in finding a very special sublet from March-September? Perhaps you’ve heard good things about La Herradura and would like to experience it first-hand before pursuing a longer term rental or purchase? My villa offers exceptional, unobstructed views to the sea, as well as a very quiet location on the Punta de la Mona. The villa is equipped with everything one would want for a unique experience in comfort and peace as you watch the birds flying over head, and listen to the sea from the terraces and inside the home. We have a Berkey water filtration system so no need to be carting large plastic bottles of water. We also have a clothes dryer and high end appliances, in addition to quality utensils, cookware and tableware. We’ve tried to think of every convenience that would make for a very special experience. This 2 bedroom and 2.5 baths home is exceptionally well equipped with 2 hair dryers, spices in the cabinet, paper products, laundry detergent etc. The master bath is exceptionally well designed with a wonderful large soaking tub and separate, large modern shower. Both baths are ensuite with the half bath upstairs by the open concept kitchen livingroom/dining area. Staying here will feel like you’re moving into a good friend’s or family member’s home. There are 2 terraces with plantings so if one loves to garden, you’d be put at the top of the list although having a green thumb is not a requirement as the watering is on an automatic sprinkler system. The rent is 2000€ per month.
Serious inquiries only please. I would be happy to send along photos and there would be an opportunity to view the villa. Please don’t hesitate asking any questions. Michelle/La Herradura. I can be reached at

Breaking News: Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons for “serious breaches” of UEFA’s financial fair play regulations. The Premier League champions will be barred from competing in UEFA club competitions and fined €30m (£24.9m), European football’s governing body announced. https://news.sky.com/story/manchester-city-banned-from-champions-league-for-two-seasons-11934156


British people could have to pay more tax on properties they rent out on the Costa: Non-resident Brits, who buy half of all properties on the market each year, may be taxed at a higher rate and won’t be able to deduct expenses.
At present EU citizens, although they are not resident in Spain, have to pay 19 per cent tax on the rental income they receive, after deducting related expenses including the commissions charged by holiday rental platforms.
Once the Brexit transition period has ended, because these owners will be residents of a non-EU country, they will have to pay 24 per cent tax on the gross rental income and they will not be able to deduct any type of associated expenses.
