Belgian Bed and Breakfast

Back from Belgium again! This week saw the welcome return of some guests who have spent many holiday and property searching breaks at Villa Florencia……….Murano glass jewellery designer Lut Schops and her partner web designer Herwig Claeys.  They have visited us many times in the past, normally with their daughter.  However, this time Isa was spending time on a school camp, so Herwig and Lut were able to visit us for a more romantic break [...]

Javi's Despedida de Soltero

11 June 2010 Despedida de Soltero. The Mobile Disco came to the Villa Flo! Usually, the “despedida” party-goers come from far and wide to celebrate the impending wedding of the boy or girl involved.  Part of the purpose of the trip to Gandia and the Villa Flo is the lively nightlife to be enjoyed in Playa de Gandia – usually much better that what is on offer in their hometowns.  So what does a group [...]

On Monday evening we invited some friends round for dinner who [...]

Family Gatherings!

No sooner were the bedrooms ready for more guests again on the Saturday, than a group of cousins arrived with their partners – 10 guests in all – for a family reunion for the rest of the weekend.  They are been spending time having barbeques outside around the pool, swimming and generally relaxing in the gardens – even playing the guitar too! Most of them have children, and this is an opportunity for them to [...]

Unexpected Guests!

After things had returned to normal after the stag party had left, a cousin of ours was scheduled to visit for the week, arriving on the Tuesday.  We had anticipated a quiet week, and were thinking we would be able to spend some time with her, showing her the area. As it turned out, we then had a succession of unexpected last-minute B&B guests arrive – a Canadian couple and two Belgian couples – that [...]
