Re: Coronavirus

Yes, only one person at a time is allowed to walk the dog :???: You're not allowed to visit family (unless they're dependents, vulnerable or disabled) and you're not allowed to visit friends. You can't go for a run or take the kids to the park :eek: You can travel to and from work or the doctors, ph...

Re: Schools in Minorca

Hi I've recently seen quite interesting Tweets regarding multilingual schools on the island (or lack of them) and the upshot is that there appears to be just two :shock: CEIP Sa Graduada in Mahon, http://www.sagraduadasapobla.com who apparently teach 30+ % in English. The other option is CEIP Tramun...

Re: palladium hotel memorca

I've read a couple stories in the local news about this refurb and things aren't looking too promising :???: Firstly, the workmen went on strike a few weeks ago, as apparently they hadn't been paid for a couple of months. This resulted in 5 people being laid off and the others went back to work, so ...

Re: sol milanos pinguinos

Happy New Year to you! Nothing happening to the hotels when we were there over Christmas. The only building development we saw was Boni's and the Mojito club having their interiors ripped out :shock: I expect it'll take a while for any work to start on the 'twin towers.' I know the reform has suppos...

Resort Developments

Hi Returned last week from a gorgeous sunny 10 day festive break on the island :cool: We didn't actually have a walk along the beach and around the resort until the final day. Unusually for the time of year, Compostella restaurant was still open :shock: (no-one in there though) and had a board outsi...

Re: What's it like there over the Xmas break?

Hi Rick We realise that it may be too quiet during the winter months, for some, but if you know where to look there does always seem to be something going on, even off-season. This is a good website http://www.nanventura.es/ca/inici although it is all in Catalan :eek: so you will need to use Google ...

Re: Compostela opening

Hi Opening this late in the year is certainly a new development, as far as I'm concerned. Although I know that Es Forn Restaurant in Torre Soli is also staying open at weekends throughout this winter. We always visit for Christmas, and usually the only place open is the little bakery, Mon-Fri, betwe...

Re: It’s quiet around here

Hi Symey

He'll be in the 222 restaurant premises. He's officially announced he's moving from Son Bou now, so let's hope someone takes the empty building on!
