To the Rescue

Yesterday I was sent to the hospital following a visit to my general doctor.  I ended up having a painful procedure on my knee resulting in a general lack of mobility, and a lot of pain. Luckily two good friends came to the rescue and did the "welcome shopping"  for the guests arriving today and helped out with their check in too. Without them in not sure what I would have done. Huge thanks due from TdM to Xan and Bob. Hopefully normal service will be resumed next week after a few days recuperation and rest.  If not I may be looking for hemp again. Looks like I'll be missing out on this weekend's Festa Major too.

Getting Warmer...

Over the next week the temperatures look to be going up even more as we head towards August.

Another Music Festival

This Friday another of Vilanova's famous and popular musical festival starts - El Tingladu. The fiesta takes place this year in the square near Rambla la Pau - THe Plaça de l'1 d'octubre. . For more information click the link or the photo.

Festa Major

If you've ever been in Vilanova at this time of year you will already know about our wonderful Festa Major, or Best Summer festival. It lasts from the 13th July through to the 5th August, with a wide range of interesting spectacles to either watch or take part in. Many of the town's citizens will be out and about celebrating during this time, you could say Vilanova really comes alive, but that might suggest it isn't alive for the rest of the year, and believe me it truly is. BY clicking the Festa Major link above or by clicking the picture below you can go to the official site for the Festa where there is a downloadable programme. There are some amazing things that really should not be miss

Weather Update

Things are really warming up here now, and even the nights are much warmer than a few days ago. Just as well we have coolers in the apartment that can be moved from room to room, and of course the windows and doors can be left open all the time you are 'home'.

Sunday 'Antiques' Market

This Sunday at the bottom of the Rambla, in front of, beside and all around the monument there is an antiques market. Bric-a-brac, antiques, curiosities, cds, Vinyls etc etc. This is a regular, recurring event and you can find more details on the events page on facebook for Vilanova ... Click on the link or the picture to take you there.

Summer 2018

Massive apologies for not being online, or at least for not updating the blog for a while, but sometimes.... (please add your own excuses ;-)) Summer is here, and has been for a while. The beaches in Vilanova are looking as good as always, and aren't too crowded, while the town is getting into the usual summer celebrations. Here at TdM we are having a busy summer so far, so plenty of bed-changing work-outs for me. So far we have had guests from a variety of locations in the UK, from as far north as Carlisle and as far south as Brighton. Happily they've all had great stays - and if you'd like to see their reviews thy're on TripAdvisor, all 5 stars so far, which makes us really happy. Here's
