The 6th Art Walk will return to Cómpeta this year over the Easter weekend, Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th of April from 11.00 - 19.00 o'clock. This event aims to bring together the community in an animated, artistic atmosphere & will be hosted at various venues in Cómpeta.

The previous 5 Art Walks have been a great success and many people from Cómpeta, other inland villages and coastal towns, have enjoyed this vibrant festival of arts and crafts. The weekend will offer all those with an interest in art the chance to meet the multinational artists of Cómpeta who have made Andalusia their home for many years. Paintings, photographs, graphics, drawings, ceramic bowls, papier mache, turned wood, textile works and bronze sculptures will be shown. More than 19 artists and craftspeople will show their works.



On May 10th this year we'll be hosting the annual fun dog show “Scruffs” at The Pavo Real on the Torrox-Cómpeta road. Last year's event was a great success and raised over €2000 for us. It's a fun day out for all the family, so please come along to support us and help us beat that figure this year!

We'll have a barbecue, some great stalls, including hoopla, face-painting and tombola and a total of twelve fun dog categories where your pooch can win a prize.

Memories of the long cold wet winter in much of northern Europe are still lingering in the thoughts of potential buyers of property in the sunnier climate on offer here in Spain. As we approach Easter, this is traditionally the time of year when many people decide to commence their search for a new home in the sun.

But it's not just the weather, the state of the economy is picking up in the UK and beyond, many people have more money to spend and more confidence in the economy of their own country and that in Spain with a likely EU bail out no longer constantly being mentioned in the media.
