"A fantastic holiday in Piso Blanco – the Barrio San Francisco, balcony and pool heightened our enjoyment of Ronda.  Was happiest watching the sunset from this balcony over the mountains."

altCalahonda, 10.15 am, Friday. Pit Stop Sports Café.

Sitting outside this English-run café, watching pale-faced Brits eating their bacon sarnies and reading the Daily Mail and listening to accents ranging from Scouse to Sarf London, I began to wonder whether I'd been beamed back to Blighty during the night!

Then I realised I was doing just the same, eating a full English breakfast, drinking a mug of insipid coffee and reading the latest SUR in English and Costa del Sol News.  Well, it makes a change.  I was in good company, chatting to my mate, Paul, and I was enjoying myself. And the breakfast went down a treat!  And all for five euros!
