Society is more and more interested in looking after its health because a good well-being means a better lifestyle.

Yes, you have been hearing this for years, ever since property prices went into free fall in 2008. However, it does seem that 2016 really is a good time to buy residential property!
Everyone agrees that the property sector has recovered from the economic crisis of 2008 when the bottom, almost literally, fell out of the market. We are seeing that credit is starting to flow from the banks and, according to market-leading property reports, Spain’s economy is recovering well, even outperforming both the UK and Germany. House sales are improving and overseas property buyers, particularly from the UK, are returning. So all indications are that the residential sales market has entered a phase of recovery.
The forecast by leading global consu...
Legal and financial questions answered at information conference in Adeje on May 24th
There are so many questions being asked about 'what if' as we approach the June 23rd vote in the UK and, it would seem, few answers.
Politically the debate seems to be focussed almost entirely in the UK – but what about the millions of ex-pats who live abroad – are their rights and concerns being taken into consideration? Almost 300,000 of them are living in Spain, and over 7,000 in Adeje alone.
Focus, the Adeje International Focus group, has requested that the Adeje council collaborate in hosting an information evening. This is taking place on Tuesday May 24th, in the Adeje Cultural Centre auditorium, from 5pm – 7pm.
The experts who will be there to answer questions will be Paul Montague from Blevins Franks and laywer José Escobedo– and they are expecting to deal with issues ranging from hea...
Cercei is a pointer cross. She was found abandoned in Mount Teide National Park and although she was scared at first, she has turned into a lovely dog – obedient, loving and playful. She needs a family who can give her a bit of time to adapt to living with them and to train her a little. We are sure this will not take long as she is very willing to learn.
If anyone is interested in adopting Cercei she can be found at the Centro de Proteccion Animal de Tierra Blanca. The Refuge does not ask for adoption fees, only a donation of food and photos to let them know how your new pet is getting on in her new home.
Call them on 606 500 171 (for English, please call Rachel on: 629 031 273)
The Refuge is located off Junction 15, the TF1 motorway by the restaurant Los Chasneros, just 200m above the motorway. Read More
Well, we are back in the UK now for the “summer” though still dwelling on fond memories of the fabulous walks taken in our beautiful island of Tenerife. I plan to keep these articles going but clearly these will be mostly “Summer Walks in Britain”. The weather has not been of the best here since we arrived back in March but we have managed to take a few strolls in our area of Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire. A couple of weeks ago the trails in most cases were extremely wet and muddy but things are now starting to dry out a little. On Tuesday Susan and I decided that, regardless of the cold, we would get ourselves out and keep the cold out by some robust hiking.
Our starting point was the historic Edwardian house and estate of Polesden Lacey, located on the North Downs at Great Bookham, Surrey, the starting point for quite a few useful walks. It is owned and run by the...
