Hi,

Olivia recommended "Dona Peluqueria" on Calle Cristobal Colon (just a stroll from Plaza Laguna) on another thread.

There are two listed on Plaza Laguna, if that is where you are looking:

Also, a separate Canela video, appropriate for this time of the year*.

Enjoy!

* Fiesta de Nuestra Sra del Carmen
P.S. There are 70 videos; including Punta del Moral, and Pozo del Camino

Hi I noticed Avon are doing a mega offer on their skin so soft spray - which is great for keeping the mozzies at bay without chemicals. Only 1.99 a bottle!

http://avonshop.co.uk/shop/product.a...soft&pagenum=1

You can read the reviews on the Avon site or on Amazon

http://www.amazon.co.uk/SELLING-150m...3544720&sr=1-1

It wasnt designed as a mozzie repellant but seems to work great as per reviews... and lots of previous postings on the forum

No commercial connection, just stumbled onto the deal

I saw this in a marketing email. Of which I have no cmmercial interest.




http://www.vivaestates.com/blog/2012...-why%E2%80%A6/

if you scroll down you see this and more data..


Think about this… it’s just been reported that in May, of a record-breaking 3.2 million searches conducted on the UK’s major property portal Rightmove Overseas, over 800,000 of these searches were for Spanish property. In fact, Spain dominates the portal, accounting for a quarter of all searches, with the traditional locations of the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca being the main areas of interest
.

With the price drop and the pound Euro getting over 1.27 I can see that there may be an upturn... good news..... if so

I did put Liz's number on that forum but my post has been deleted by Sue for the following reason: "not a good idea to post telephone numbers on a public forum" The number i did put is the one the people call to have an appointment with her. Anyway if you call Taxi Links during the day, you should get her as she drives a cab too!

We get a number of complaints from people when others have put their number up on a public forum which is seen everywhere. It can lead to some real crap, believe me.

Hence, its protecting people, not trying to be alkward

So everyone would have known the number of a lady taxi driver then

Portugal is your best bet for good campsites. We have a motorhome too and recently had a fab few days at Olhao campsite where we also found a fantastic kennel for our dog whilst we had a couple of days at the Portugal Masters. There are plenty of golf courses near this site. Earlier this year we used the site at Cabanas which is also a lovely site. Both have good shower and toilet blocks and do long stay discount. You will find both campsites on www.ukcampsites.co.uk with good reviews. Campsites thin on the ground once you cross into Spain and golf not as good. Only in our opinion mind! as for temporary membership I can't help. We just pay and play.

There is a very nice camp site at Isla Cristina and within a 10 km radius there must be a dozen golf courses eight or so in Spain and 4 in Portugal. All will be good courses of different types. I think just up the road Islantilla does short term memberships.
