Phil, most of the area does have broadband now but some developments still have a connect limit issue. Make sure you check with Telefonica before committing to anything!

Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to get broadband in the Manillva area now, as we are looking to buy somewhere near Sabinillas within the next year. I used to live in Casares/Sabby 20 years ago and even getting electricity was a big hassle then.

Siesta Show Webisode 51 - Ex-pats follow the broken brick road!
For today's show we visited Coto Real and Arenal developments in the Manilva area of Andalucia, as they have a problem with the road... as in, where is it? See what they had to say about the terrible state of a road that is certainly no fairytale!   After filming this show, Colin spoke to Chris Olsen of the Foreign Residents Office in the Manilva Town Hall. Chris was very understanding and spoke frankly about the situation and stated that this is just one of the issues that the new Mayoress of Manilva, Antonia Muńoz, and her team are facing head on following the somewhat rapid change of administration here in Manilva. Further Chris was very helpful and spoke of a meeting that they were already arranging, prior to Eye on Spain’s filming, with the developers and the administration of both developments, and also stated that the problem is not as clear cut as it seems to appear to the owners of both developments. They intend to release a public statement early next week which we will bring to you, so watch this space !

Menu del dia - The easy way to a cheap meal in Spain
We headed off for a "menu del dia" for today's show.  It's a cheap way to get a three course meal in Spain.  Originally meant for the workers, to make sure they had a filling lunch, the menu del dia is a great way to get a good meal at a great price.
