* La Latina Baby School

Established in 1994, La Latina Baby School is a bilingual school in Marbella offering primary education in English and Spanish for children aged 3 months to four years old. This school is an ideal place where children establish their first links to the world, outside of the family, where they can grow, mature and learn where they will be loved and valued for who they are...children!

They have some great reviews, so check them out. Click here to read more...

* Estepona Youth Theatre

There is still some space at The Estepona Youth Theatre where children can participate in a number of fun classes that not only help children learn the art of theatre, but gives them lots of other “life skills” such as public speaking and confidence. A new semester has just started, so if you have children interested in performing arts, have them try a class. They also have some great reviews and a fantastic track record with their LAMDA exams.

* Traditional Spanish restaurants

We have had a fantastic turnout of recommendations for this reader who asks, "I am looking for a traditional Spanish restaurant anywhere with a view ? Mountains or Sea. I once went to a Mallorcain House in the Mountains and the Father cooked the meals and his 2 daughters served and helped out in the kitchen. The Spanish family only served 2 groups of people at one time (day) and 2 at (night).

This is the kind of restaurant I am looking for, or at least Very Traditional Spanish Food. Thank you in advance to help me out :)”

* Wing chun classes

Yesterday there was a group of us who tried out the new wing chun classes at Kudo Academies in Marbella. Wing chun is a Chinese martial art that is a very efficient form of self defense and was a huge influence on Bruce Lee’s training. We are looking for a couple of other students to join us on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 10:00am. If you’re not sure, just come and try it out. First class is free! Or for more information contact Sifu Ben on Facebook at Wing Chun in Marbella.
