False Alarm: English Film

There will be, after all, a film in English in Almuñécar this week; on Wednesday the 2nd at 18.000h. The film is Bridget Jones’s Baby and will be shown in the Casa de la Cultura.

Blackmail?

After the teachers in the Balearic Islands had been on strike for ten days, a conservative MP dropped a bomb shell: parents who are supporting the teachers strike run the risk of having their children removed from their care for not ensuring that they children go to school.

Dani Delight

If you need your hair done and you live in the Almuñécar area, where should you go? Chez Dani of course! This little salon just off the beach in Calle Marquita, is a friendly haven of expert coiffing for both men and women.

Carrington Builders & Decorators

Well after spending a lovely warm couple of months lazing around enjoying idle chit chat with your friends and family, discussing the improvements you would like to make on your home, why not give Bob Carrington a call and get a quote for the work.

La Herradura English Library

There are now over 900 titles fully catalogued on the library’s computer that contains all the English language titles from every library in Andalusia. Even if you can’t find the title you want, the computer can be checked, and if it is held at another site, they will despatch it to La Herradura free of charge. What an excellent service!

Camac in Órgiva

Who in the Alpujarra or the coast hasn’t heard about Camac Shop in Orgiva? Even myself used to come to spend the weekend around away from the coast in the search of fresh air and I used to do my shopping there to bring home my favourite English products.

The Anchor

You’re assured of a warm welcome when you drop in at El Ancla (The Anchor), and at the same time you can enjoy a full English breakfast, snacks and full meals, it’s also worth checking out the blackboard outside for specials.
The family team of Katie, Jean, Cliff and Jonathan can be found on Paseo Andrés Segovia from 10.00am every day except Thursdays, and there you will find, from the creative hand of Jonathan, fish and chips worthy of a king!

El Faro

Sometimes, when you’re on holiday, you get the urge for a taste of home… luckily in Plaza de los Magnolios in Almuñécar, you’ll find just that.
El Faro has been bringing some typical British cuisine to the Costa for quite some time now, and it’s to their credit they even have quite a big Spanish following, which includes the Eds girlfriend Mari, who totally sold on a British, Sunday Roast when she tried one there.

Taxi!

Sometimes, even us car owners need the services of a taxi. Whether we’ve broken down or have just had one or six too many, and need to get home to our bed without going via a Guardia Civil cell.
