Information is generally based around a 'place', which can be a region, province, comarca (county), city, town or village.

  • To see a specific place - type its name into the "Type a placename" box (selecting the name when you see it appear) - the page for that place will be displayed with tabs for information.
  • To browse down through a region - click the "Locations" button and start selecting, or click on the map (hover to see the region's name).

For activities and accomodation - click on the relevant menu button and you will see a list of types of activity/accomodation together with a list places where they occur. Click on the place name for more details.

If you can't find what you are looking for, please let us know (use the menu item Contact Us). We'd also like to hear any comments you'd care to make.



Comedy of Errors (Spanish style) in at least 2 acts


Friday I experienced what can only seem to happen to me and only then in Spain.

After a week away, I returned to Valencia Airport. Paid the car park ticket at the machine (as instructed by the car park office when I dropped the car off) then the 5 minute walk to long term car park. Rats .. I'd left the inside light on in my car and had a flat battery - ah well, phoned the Insurance Company

Insurance & car park office in English, everyone else in Spanish

How to quickly transfer money to Spain


I'm staggered, amazed, gob-smacked - take your choice - I've just had to transfer a sizeable amount of money from the UK to Spain. I use a transfer company (Currencies Direct) to move money from the UK because it's cheap (as in free) and quick .. when I last did this the whole process took about a week (which is reasonable) - 3 days to transfer the money to the transfer company and another 3 days for the money to get to my account in Spain. This time the whole process took less than a day!!
