From The Editors Desk

3rd December 2016


Welcome to this weeks Fuertenews and the start of Advent! 

We love Christmas here at Fuertenews HQ and wanted to start getting everyone in the mood already, so we hope you enjoy this weeks edition.

There are some crazy flight prices available this week and next: Ryanair, Monarch, Thomas and Easy jet prices are around £35 one way!!!

These are the same airlines that charge £400 for the same flight in high season, so its an ideal time to escape for a few days before the Christmas period increases the prices once again.

A few public holidays this week, 6th December is Spanish constitution day and 8th December is a Catholic celebration of “the immaculate conception. Remember some places may be closed on these days so check ahead.

Have a great week and remember start "getting festive"

  • Restaurant Sanus

    Restaurant Sanus

    Revisited an old favourite recently - Sanus restaurant. Having a vegetarian friend, we went along at her request, to be honest, I have decided that I could easily become a vegie!.

    Sanus has such a varied menu selection that even if you have no food intolerances the menu offers a superb change to the normal style of restaurant.
