Last minute Christmas bits!

Filed under: Local Businesses — Barrington Homes @ 9:45 pm

For any last minute Christmas bits and bobs such as Christmas cards, wrapping paper, crackers, gifts or even balloons, don’t forget The English bookshop in Sabinillas.

Steve, the” not so new anymore” owner of the English Book Shop has changed this local business beyond recognition and after much rearranging, the brighter and sleeker version of the bookshop has become an Aladdin’s cave for all local bookworms!!

The children’s section of books has been greatly improved and evoked many memories for me when I set eyes upon such classics as Heidi and The Magic Faraway Tree. Steve even supplies packets of retro candies such as Pear Drops and American Hard Gums for the children or indeed the child in you!

For gifts, there is a fantastic selection of cook books, novels, language books, dictionaries, maps, 2012 diaries, bookmarks and as always the selection of second hand books is vast.

It is fantastic to see enthuiasm and investment in our local town of Sabinillas so support Steve and pay him a visit. The English bookshop in Sabinillas is the place to pick up all of the free local newspapers and you will always pick up useful local information.

Steve’s opening hours are Monday to Friday 9.30 – 14.30 / 16.00 – 19.00 and Saturday 10.00 – 14.00 and is located near to Mercadona in Sabinillas.

Paraiso de la Bahia, Casares Costa

Filed under: Property — Barrington Homes @ 10:12 am

Paraiso de la Bahia is a well established and hugely popular development of apartments on the Casares Costa, close to Duquesa.

 Paraiso de la Bahia is a secure and gated community with mature gardens, a children’s play area and 2 beautiful swimming pools. The surrounding land is largely undeveloped and so Paraiso de la Bahia remains private and is not over- looked by other developments. The low community fees are one of the huge draws to this urbanisation by property owners.

The location of Paraiso de la Bahia is fantastic; just 5 minutes walk to the wonderful Casares Costa beaches and beautiful beach restaurants and minutes away from Duquesa and Estepona. Finca Cortesin Hotel and Golf resort and their brand new Beach Club are also minutes away as well as other fantastic golf courses such as La Duquesa, Casares, Valle Romano and Estepona golf.

Barrington Homes have recently sold 3 apartments in this sought after development and only  have  a  few remaining properties.

 A 3 bedroom duplex apartment with stunning views and sunny south facing terraces.

A 3 bedroom penthouse apartment and a superb 2 bedroom ground floor property with a south east facing terrace and a second garden area that has recently been reduced in price.

Sunday Market in Sabinillas

Filed under: Local Events & Culture — Barrington Homes @ 11:02 am

I am sure that the local businesses had a collective sigh of relief when the Manilva townhall made recent announcements about the very popular Sunday market in Sabinillas

A few years ago the Sabinillas Sunday market was held on the Paseo in the town and was a hub of activity and a great source of income for the local bars and restaurants. It was then moved to the fairground area and was a great loss for these local businesses and the town of Sabinillas.
As of yesterday, Sunday 4th December and for a trial period up until May 27th 2012, 50 stalls will be relocated to the Sabinillas Paseo, in front of the La Noria development and the remaining stalls will retain their position at the Fairground. The sun was shining yesterday and I hope that the move was a huge success for all involved.

Barrington Homes and holidays have properties in La Noria for sale and rent.
