Medieval Market of Fuengirola 2018

10syys

The Medieval Market has been held every summer in Fuengirola for the last 15 years.

This interesting Medieval Market is one of the most important in Spain as it not only takes you back in time, but it also takes place in the most perfect spot possible: The Sohail Castle, a beautiful Moorish fortress from the 11th century.

While the market is on, the public will enjoy some great medieval music, parades, magic shows and many other activities based on medieval Spain. Besides this there will be fantastic food, as well as many stalls with lovely handmade items.

This year the Medieval Market will start this Wednesday, the 12th of September, and will end on Sunday the 16th, so if right now you are on holiday with us at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend you visit it.

Its opening times are from 7:00 P.M to 02:00 A.M and the entry to the castle is free.

Try not to miss one of the best events of the end of summer in Costa del Sol!

Post-holiday blues?

18syys

Are you a bit down because we are in the middle of September and your holidays are well over?

Do you miss the beautiful sun of Fuengirola and the relaxing times you had while on holiday at Hotel Angela?

Going back to your routines and the upcoming Autumn are possibly affecting your mood. Because of this, today we would like to recommend you 5 superfoods that could help you cope with post-holiday blues a bit more.

They are the following:

  • Chickpeas: Chickepeas produce serotonin, a natural antidepressant.
  • Blue fish: blue fish such as tuna, sardines or salmon are rich in Omega 3, a fatty acid that helps increase our self-esteem.
  • Bananas: If you have low energy levels bananas will give you an energy boost as they are the most recommended fruit to help us recover after physical efforts. It also contains nutrients that help our body absorb tryptophan, a substance that raises our mood.
  • Dried fruits: Dried fruits like walnuts, seeds, pistachios or almonds are rich in minerals and tryptophan, which help regulate our energy levels.

And of course…

  • Chocolate: Chocolate is famous for stimulating the production of endorphins, also known as the hormones of happiness. Chocolate is the best and most accessible antidepressant ever as it raises the brain’s serotonin levels.

 

If you are feeling a bit deflated these days you have 2 options: to include these foods in your shopping list or to start planning your next holiday with us at Hotel Angela.

There is no need to  say that the second option is definitely our favourite!

We hope to see you back very soon!

Greener holidays

04syys

Hotel Angela, together with its sister hotels Hotel Florida Spa and Hotel Yaramar, are part of the hotel group ML Hoteles. The 3 of them are hotels committed to save the environment.

This summer 2017 we asked our guests to consider simple pledges to make their holidays a bit greener.

We informed you about this through our Facebook pages and also by putting some informative posters in our front desks.

Now that summer is almost over we have taken a look at the pledges our guests kindly handed in and we have decided to share them with you.

They are the following:

  • No to plastic
  • Reduce, re-use, recycle
  • Protect children
  • Local transport
  • Buy local souvenirs
  • Holiday clean up
  • Eat local – drink local
  • Talk to the locals
  • Respect local customs
  • Switch me off
  • Every drop counts
  • Tell the world

To finish off this blog post we would like to dedícate it to those guests who have participated in this lovely initiative.

Thanks a lot to Neil, Koren, Dominik, Laszlo, Boglarka, Abigail, Khimbi, Lawrence and Kenneth for helping us protect the planet… Because a green holiday is always the best kind of holiday!
