      Nice area to stay in?

      Minorca Island Feb 16, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      We're a family of four going to Menorca for a week in July - we've never been before and would appreciate advice on where to look for accommodation. We're looking for a quiet village/town by the sea - away from any big resorts. Any good suggestions? We found a lovely flat in Cala Morell, but we can't quite figure out if there are any restaurants/grocery shops at all, or if it's all residential. The kids are 14 and 17 so might be nice for them if it's not completely deserted :) We'd really appreciate any suggestions!

      Best wishes from Anne :)

      We are going to Cordoba on Wednesday. Unfortunately, my husband is a football-obsessive and on Sunday afternoon Manchester United play an important game (apparently!). He has asked me to ask you whether there are any football/English-type bars in Cordoba where he could watch this extravanganza.
      We were in Cordoba for a week last year and I can't recall anywhere that might fit his bill (which is it's charm, of course).

      I apologise for asking this naff question, but MOH (if not me) would be really grateful for any information you can give.

      Many thanks

      christmas holidays in andalucia (cordoba)

      by globetrekker_airen Online Now Aug 20, 2010 at 9:16 AM

      hello fellow vt'ers.

      We are planning to visit andalucia during christmas holidays and we have 10 days to allocate the trip in seville, cordoba and granda (or other suggestions).

      i would like to solicit advice on:

      1) how to distribute the days to these 3 cities considering travel time of half-day from one city to the other (by bus)?

      2) where would it be best to stay for christmas (perhaps 4 days stay): seville, cordoba or granada, considering factors such as christmas eve mass celebration in the local cathedral and safety to go around at night during this season?

      2) are the transportation system and streets (considering also inside the major
      attractions) in the 3 cities baby-friendly in terms of ease of using a baby buggy/ stroller?

      3) is alsa the best/ most convenient bus for families with babies (example: eating/ drinking allowed inside the bus, adequate legspace)? we're on a tight budget so we will be using bus to travel?

      4) are there areas in the major attractions (eg. mezquita, medina, etc) to eat/ drink or is it advised to buy at the center and bring the food (also baby food)?

      5) are there cheap, easy-to-find supermarkets/ grocery stores in these cities to buy and cook food (and other necessities) or do we have buy them separately from specialty stores (like bread from bakery, meat from meatshop,etc)?

      thank you so much in advance :)

      My daughter and I will be travelling to Andalucia for 10 days in May and will be staying in Cordoba for 1 night. We are looking for some centrally located accommodation. We're not interested in expensive 5 star hotels but moreso budget type accommodation, even hostels would be ok so long as it's clean, friendly and has a nice feel to it. Quirky and different is ok too. Budget to medium price range is our choice.

      Mezquita Opening Hours and Entry Fees

      by Venelin Online Now Oct 27, 2009 at 4:08 AM


      I read in the Lonely Planet guidebook for Andalusia that the entry to the Cordoba mosque is free in the morning until 10am, only for individual visitors, but not for groups. However, the website of the mosque does not list any such possibility. Can anyone confirm or deny this piece of information? I would assume that the administration of this famous sight does not particularly like to emphasize on the fact that you can enter for free, but it could be that LP is wrong, of course.
