      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 :)

      by cagey4woftam Online Now Dec 29, 2016 at 11:32 PM

      I was contemplating getting off a cruise ship at Cadiz in Mid July. It was my intention to hire a car and travel to Seville, Malaga, Cartegena and Valencia. However inquiries show it could be quite hot then even 47 degrees celsius. Is it that hot and would it be better for me to travel to this region at some other time other than July/August?

    • Suggestions for day trips from Seville

      by Golpe Online Now Oct 25, 2016 at 3:55 AM

      I will be in Seville in mid March. I will be there for 7 days and am seeking suggestions for 3 day trips. Not Granada, not Cordoba. I was thinking of the Aracena Cave, a white village or two and ...... This will be with public transportation. I read that Ronda is a complicated full day trip and for that time maybe somewhere else is better.
      Suggestions are welcome.
      Thank you

    • Flamenco shops & Parking

      by crazymum Online Now Oct 1, 2016 at 1:27 AM

      Where is the nearest place on non-metered parking near the cathedral please - we parked a 20 minute walk on the outskirts of town by the metro down from the Alcatraz and saw one large church but not the cathedral and missed out on a lot of the barrie gothic

      When we were walking down from the large church keeping straight we went into a large shop selling shawls and beautiful fans - they gave me a dark green carrier bag - my friend is into salsa/tango dancing and I would like to get some reasonably priced fans - any suggestions please

      Really looking forward to going back to this lovely city - planning to go Mid Nov Many thanks

    • Where to live Sevilla-Padre Pio hacienda San Antonio?

      by Rosedu Online Now Jun 2, 2016 at 3:44 PM


      We're currently living in Murcia (a young family with 3 little boys) but are moving to Sevilla in July. Does anyone know what the Padre Pio hacienda San Antonio area (Sevilla capital) is like? Think it's in the cerro amate area. We have the offer of a house there but I would like to know if it's suitable for young kids? Will there be green areas around us, parks, playgrounds etc.? It looks quite highrise from google photos I've seen. Is it the type of area that my kids can meet other kids and therefore learn Spanish naturally, through play? Or it is an area where that wouldn't really happen. Part of the reason we're moving to Sevilla is for the children to have more opportunities to learn Spanish in a natural setting?
      Also is the area well connected by bus or train? How far is it into Sevilla citycentre? Is it a safe area?
      Any recommendations or advice will be appreciated.
      Thanks in advance,
