Quote of the Month

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

Garden Club visit - Tuesday 12 May in Sayalonga

Our next meeting on Tuesday 12th May will be hosted by two of our garden club members,  Anna and David in Sayalonga.  Please aim for a start for the visit of around 11.00 am as usual.
 
There is limited parking available and so it will be really useful if you can share cars similar to last month's visit in Canillas de Albaida.
 
As you will see from the directions below there is a shared one way drive to Anna and David's house. Their house is at the bottom of the drive.

The neighbours have been advised of the date and time of the visit, so will not mind if you park on their drives, however, car sharing is likely to reduce the congestion on the day of the visit.
 
As our hosts are serving refreshments, it is courteous to advise in advance of our numbers so please email me at cindyjones19@hotmail.com by 7 May to let me know if you are attending and to advise if you need a lift.
 
This promises to be a great meeting as in addition to seeing Anna and David's garden, they will also inform us of their business "Vetiverspain" to solve erosion problems.

Follow the link http://www.vetiverspain.com/home.html to find out more.

I look forward to seeing you at 11am and please remember if you park first, then you will probably be blocked in, therefore last out!!  So if you have to rush off, please plan accordingly.

Kind regards
Cindy Jones   

Directions

From Sayalonga

Turn into the car park and drive up the hill past Taurus Estates (on your left).
 
From Competa it is a left turn. From Algarrobo it is a right turn. 

 Go to the top of the parking lot and turn left.
 This is the top of the parking lot that goes only left.  There is a short some dirt track before turning to concrete again.
 
.
 At 0.6 K from the parking lot you will see Casa Berli.  
 
 You will pass a false traffic light at the Parador.  Then there is concrete again
 
 At the T junction you will turn left towards Competa.
 There is a short dirt track here.
 When you see the wall on the right you are almost there.
 See the Green painted rocks?  Turn left here.
Follow the drive all the way to the end.  As your GPS says, "You have arrived." 
This is your parking area for the visit.
The house name is Casa Anna

From Competa

[If you feel faint hearted about taking either route below you could always take the main road from Competa all the way to Sayalonga and then turn left up into the car park in Sayalonga, and follow the instructions with pictures  above].

Route 1
The most direct route is along the Ridge Road towards Sayalonga, turning between Portichuelo and Venta da Palma. However, the track is a bit rough in places, so please drive with care.

Follow the Ridge road past Linda's house (on your right) and go straight on at the T junction where turning right takes you past the Bodega Bentomiz. 

Drive round the bend and down the hill, and just before the large concrete wall on your left you will see a green stone, take an immediate sharp right turn down the shared drive. You will see another green stone on the right as you turn down the track. There are small Cypress trees along the side of the drive on your left. 

Anna and David's house is at the end of the track at the bottom. If the drive is full you can use the concrete drives of the neighbours for parking and turning.

Route 2
Take the main road from Competa to Sayalonga that goes past Viveros Florena.

Before reaching Sayalonga you will see a turn left up a steep track on the bend sign-posted Bodega Bentomiz.

Turn left here and follow the track all the way to the T junction with the Ridge Road.

At the T junction turn right. Drive round the bend and down the hill, and just before the large concrete wall on your left you will see a green stone, take an immediate sharp right turn down the shared drive. You will see the green stone on the right as you turn down the track. There are small Cypress trees along the side of the drive on your left. 
 
Anna and David's house is at the end of the track at the bottom. If the drive is full you can use the concrete drives of the neighbours for parking and turning.
