Did we jinx the weather here in Manchester last Saturday when we posted on social media about how glorious it was to see the sunshine again? Probably! Sorry about that…


But the sun was most definitely shining after a miserable & grey week, so whilst the sky was blue and the weather warm we had to make the most of it.

Last week, one of my very favourite lifestyle bloggers ‘The Londoner’ (Check out her blog and give it a read, it’s fantastic) recently told her readers about her famous White Peach Sangria.


I love Sangria and always make some when I can, but this sounded like a lighter, more refreshing and crisper version of the rich and sweet traditional Spanish Sangria that I usually make.

I couldn’t wait to give it a try & was impressed at how easy it is to make too. All you need is white wine, lemonade, ice and peaches.


Just slice a couple of peaches, pop them into your jug with plenty of ice. Add lemonade and white wine, its completely up to you how much of these you want to add.

As this was still the afternoon I added a little more lemonade than wine, although if I was making this for an evening party I’d definitely add a little more of the wine.

It’s so moreish and very easy to drink. It tastes perfect anyway that you choose to make it really & you can also try this with sparking water if you find the lemonade a little too sweet.

Next time the sun is shining give it a go. I think this would be the perfect summer party drink & would definitely impress your guests too.

Although, here in Manchester I don’t know how long we’ll be waiting for the sun to emerge again…maybe just give it a go and dream of the beaches in Spain then?

We are currently finding the property market across the Costa Blanca, Murcia and Almeria extremely buoyant.  The excellent euro/pound exchange rate combined with the keen prices we are seeing right now are a big plus for the buyer.  The media are reporting a growth in mortgage completions, and in some locations prices are now actually starting to rise.

Over the last year we have witnessed changes in the property market, for example, 12 months ago buyers had a high number of options and opportunities available to them which helped to drive the selling price of property down.  Fast forward a year and this is no longer the case in many locations.


High quality re-sale stock is moving, and moving quickly, which creates demand, and that demand creates an upward price movement. All of a sudden the gap between good re-sale property and high quality new build options is smaller.

The entry level for a new build apartment, in a good location is currently circa 100,000 euro, (approx £71,500.00.)  The new build opportunities on offer right now are with a high level spec and a 10 year build guarantee that makes this option difficult for some to ignore.

Whilst at this time the market most definitely favours the buyer, anyone looking to purchase property in Spain should seek advice from an independent lawyer prior to purchasing.  This is to ensure that all obligations of owning a property in Spain are fully understood.  It is also essential for buyers to know how to buy euro in order to maximise their pound sterling’s buying power.
