    • Driving from Barcalona Airport to Denia

      Denia Dec 20, 2016 at 11:10 PM

      I am intending to double back to Barcelona airport (after three days in the city) and rent a car to drive to Denia where we have a time share for 5 nights.
      We will have the car for a further three weeks.
      What are the points of interest along the way?
      What are some of the highlights of the area= scenic - food- landscape photography- street photography?
      We probably will bypass Valencia and do that as a day trip when we do not have to drive into a large city.
      Appreciate some local knowledge

      Quiet area in Tenerife

      Isla de Tenerife Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

      I am going to go to the Menorca end of September (from 23rd to 29th).
      I really love the beach, so I have chosen this island.

      However, if it is too late to go to the beach I have to change my plan...
      Please advise me regarding the weather.

      In addition, if you think it's better to change the plan, I would appreciate it if you could suggest other island.

We guessed they might have been made in Menorca, but all attempts to find them on the Internet have so far failed !!!!.Does any one have any idea of the name of any bags that are made in Menorca? or that are sold on the Island, we are desperate to find them, as my wife fell in love with them, but sadly time ran out before we could buy one!!

    • need accommodation advice

      by daybreak19 Online Now Jun 16, 2011 at 3:52 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I'm Lillie and I need some help / advice about accommodation as I'm coming on the 27th June

      I can't seem to find a single room with the use of kitchen ... I have food allergies so I have to prepare my own food, so no hotels and apartments are too expensive, I am alone

      I was told to look for 'pensions' and 'casas de huespedes' but they seem to be the same as hostels? no kitchen use ...

      so, do you know where I could find this?

      or do you happen to know someone who rents a room with kitchen near sea at reasonable price? tight budget

      or do you need a roommate for a rented apartment? lol

      also, any suggestion on where to go? beaches with shade / trees? not fond of resorts and noise ... i'm guessing Mao is not a very good choice for accommodation as i'd have to travel to the beach by bus right?

      thanks, Lillie

      I'm going with my boyfriend to Minorca at June and I would like to stay in a nice place, with a nice beach and a good hotel. I don't know if Ciudadella is a good option... I read that is near all the pretty beaches and as many options to eat.
      By the other way I also read that Macarella is a wonderful beach but I don't find any hotels there.
      So... where do you recommend me to stay? A nice place for a couple... not a big hotel with lots of families with young children screaming... :-)

      We're staying in Cala'n Forcat (now part of the Cala'n Blanes resort district) but we want to hire a car for a few days. The nearest pick-up point our tour operator can offer us is from Cala'n Bosch, which isn't too far away, but still a possible hike.

      I know buses are generally good to and from nearby Ciutadella so I was wondering if anyone could give me any more info and/or advice re; buses and taxis to and from (we'd have to drop off there 4 days later and get back to Cala'n Forcat, too!)

      Minorca Pottery

      by Malcolm_Ostermeyer Online Now Apr 27, 2009 at 8:31 AM

      Hi Folks;
      This is a bit strange!
      During the last few months my wife has started to collect large earthenware plates from Minorca. They typically have "Menorca" across the top and depict things like stylised cockerels or fish. They're usually signed but the signature is unreadable, though it pehaps begins with "P"; sometimes there's also the letter "R" as well. She's convinced they're antiques as they she says they are quite high quality (my wife knows a lot about antique china! - see our e-Bay site!), but I'm convinced they're tourist stuff.
      Can anyone supply any information about these plates and where they could have been made?

    • Long-term rental in Menorca

      by SuenMartin Online Now Mar 17, 2009 at 2:06 AM


      We are looking for a long-term rental in Menorca, on the eastern side of the island. We have our own business over here but are not in a position to buy just now (not a good time to sell in the UK). Anywhere from Alayor, Son Bou, Es Castell, St Luis, Mahon, Sant Clement, and anywhere in between, would be ideal.

      We are currently renting a property in Santa Ana and have been told we can come back here for next winter from October so a shorter-term let would be ok if need be. Ideally we would really prefer to find somewhere where we can settle properly, without having to pack up all our boxes every six months :)

      Any help would be really appreciated, and many thanks.
