Here are some pictures from our family summer holidays over recent years. Photos From:  Coin, Mijas, Estepona - all in Andalucia Spain - and then in Carveioro & Albufeira  Portugal 2003, 2004 and 2005. Our summer holiday in 2006 was in Vale do Lobo in the Algarve and last year we went to Puerto Pollensa in Mallorca.

Puerto Pollensa is a lovely seaside town in the unspoilt part of north mallorca. There is a long promenade which was great for me and Mum & Dad had some wonderful cross country walks.

Our summer holidays in 2005 were in Albufeira, Portugal.(We went twice as my Dad had retired). We stayed at a beautiful villa in Praia D'oura and had a fabulous time going out on "The Strip". At night I had Irish Coffee while listining to the music from the clubs and Bars. I even went to a Night Club!  Ken found a "Bucking Bronco" and had great fun.

Our Family Summer Holidays in 2003 and 2004 were in The Algarve Portugal. We had a lovely holiday at the coastal village of Carveioro at the Rocha Brava resort on the cliffs above the town. Cliff walks, golf, restaurants  - a haven for Mum & Dad. I loved it also as I got out and about a lot.

The location of our holiday in 2001 was at the villa "La Sala" located near Mijas, a lovely white village in the hills above Fuengirola. We had visited Mijas in 2000 and were all set for a return visit in 2001. We took some lovely pictures at the villa during our holiday at this lovely mountain village situated in the Sierra de Mijas.


I will keep this page updated with holiday snaps.


Our Annual holiday for 2002 was in Estepona in Southern Spain. We had a lovely Villa named Casa Estemya and enjoyed the lovely ambience of the area. A Trip to Gibralter was an added bonus for Mum & Dad & Marie.

The location of our holiday in 2000 was at the villa "Casacool" located in a small urbanisation between the White villages of Coin and Alhurhin de la Grande, some 35 miles inland from Malaga. It was a lovely holiday, far from the costa's and we all enjoyed the "real spain" feel to the area. We picked oranges freely in the nearby orange groves and feasted on the harvest immediately. Our host, Joan made us feel very much at home and we look forward to another visit before too long.
