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.

PLEASE READ!: If you use a non-Spanish phone number please type it  exactly as it is dialled from Spain. I am getting complaints from readers who say some provided phone numbers are being submitted with a variety of country codes and are either missing, or have extra, digits. These are unreachable, so you are missing replies.

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

The first large scale operation against pirate IPTV users worldwide begins in Italy: Italian Police Report 223 Pirate IPTV Subscribers to the Judicial Authorities. According to the authorities, the targeted users risk a hefty fine as well as a potential prison sentence. According to the law enforcement agency, the investigation remains ongoing. This means that more IPTV subscribers may be identified and reported in the future.
The subscribers in question are being held responsible for the crime of “receiving stolen goods.” If found guilty, they risk a penalty of 25,000 euros as well as an eight-year prison sentence, the authorities state.
If and how many of the reported IPTV subscribers will indeed be prosecuted is unknown. However, the operation does show that subscribers are not untouchable, which will likely be used as a warning message to others.
