A New Luxury Hotel In Puerto Del Carmen - La Isla y El Mar

We recently had the pleasure of being shown around the site of the new boutique hotel by Sales Director Marga de Luis González. La Isla y El Mar (The Island and the ocean) is due to open in the spring, and is on a site of an old accommodation complex called Balcón del Mar, overlooking the old town harbour of Puerto del Carmen.

The plan is for the new hotel to open in May, and when we visited construction was going well. This certainly isn’t a “lick of paint” type of refurbishment – the whole place has basically been torn apart and rebuilt using  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, La Bohemia

We’ve heard lots of people mention the Argentinian restaurant La Bohemia in Costa Teguise, we tried it for ourselves recently.

La BohemiaLa Bohemia Morcilla

As we understood this to be a busy restaurant we made a reservation in advance for a table of six. We’d have been disappointed if we hadn’t, it was a weekday night and almost every table was occupied with predominantly Spanish clientele. Our table was in the conservatory by the entrance, we didn’t get off to a good start, I asked our waiter what was popular on the menu to which he exclaimed “Lady, we’re Argentinian!” and gestured wildly at  read more »

Book Review - Moving To Spain With Children

There are any number of books (including our own!) about moving to Spain, but this is the first we’ve seen that focuses on the area most people are concerned about – their children.

Moving to Spain with children

The book has been written by our friend Lisa Sadleir, who is a successful working Mum based in Andalucia.

It covers:

  • Timing your move
  • Choosing the best location
  • All the detail on schooling
  • Sorting the paperwork
  • Helping the children with learning Spanish

And it also goes on to other key areas of a move, like:

  • Buying a property
  • Starting a business
  • Sorting out healthcare

Lisa’s main business is all about helping people navigate the paperwork system in Spain, so you know her information is going to be accurate, and she also runs a very popular blog called Family Life in Spain.  read more »
