Vinos y Licores is well stocked, not just with choice wines and spirits, there are classy drink accessories, plus those tasty nibbles.
Just opened, Vinos y Licores, Montemar. You can find the shop on the left, as you approach the village from the Fontanas.

We always like to support Algorfa businesses, and supporting this business will be an absolute pleasure.
The Business Directory for Algorfa:
Needs to be updated.
To make details of businesses more visible and accessible, we’re going to add them (for free) to each page of algorfa.co.uk where it’s possible (see left of page: Algorfa Businesses).
Continuing with our support of local businesses, each valid (legal of course) business is offered a free page on algorfa.co.uk.
We can’t say this page will always be free, but while economics are still in the doldrums, we’d like to do our ‘bit’ to help.
This is a great opportunity to update information for local businesses.
CALLING ALL ALGORFA BUSINESSES!
Over the next few days/weeks, we will endeavour to transfer data from the Business Directory, where we believe businesses are still trading.
In the meantime, businesses can contact us with their details for inclusion, and/or updating.
If you know of a business that should be included, then please tell the owner/manager to contact us.
This offer is free, with no catches! We don’t have any other agenda than to help our great Algorfa community.
Sometime in the early months of 2013, the ‘defunct’ business directory will be deleted.
Fire in Valencia
1,600 residents evacuated
More than 1,600 residents have been evacuated as a fire raged out of control in Valencia.
The villagers of Chulilla and Gastalgar, each with some 800 residents, were evacuated by the Guardia Civil as a precaution. The cause of the fire, which stared aroud 4:00 p.m. yesterday (23rd September), is still being investigated.
Some 80 pensions were evacuated from the local ‘balneario spa’, by several ambulances, and 5 kilometres of the CV-395, linking Sot de Chera with Villar del Arzobispo, were closed.
Throughout the night, 13 air fire fighting crews were in operation. Joining them was a Unit of Emergency UME Military, as the fire spread through the Valanician district of Los Serranos.
Courtesy of Wiki: The Military Emergencies Unit (Spanish: Unidad Militar de Emergencias, UME) is a branch of the Spanish Armed Forces responsible for providing disaster relief throughout Spain mainly, and abroad if required. It is the newest branch of the Spanish Armed Forces.
“Well Fred! Look on the brightside,
at least the insurance is cheaper!”
‘Tourists held to randsom by car hire sharks’ a the headline from ‘Mail-on-Line‘ – see the original article here.
It appears that holidaymakers to Spain, when trying to collect their booked hire-car at the airport, are being told they must pay another €100 (£80). Families arriving feel the car-hire company Goldcar are holding them to ransom. They allege that the firm is demanding customers are being asked to pay an extra €100 for insurance or they won’t be allowed to drive away a vehicle.
