We’re a Nottingham couple - John 69 and me (Ann) 63. We’ve had a holiday home in Albatera for the last three years and have just moved to our new purchase in Lo Pagan, so we’ve changed forums from the Costa Blanca to this one, which I know we will enjoy reading daily just as much.  The information and knowledge gained has been so useful. We’re over for a nice long break at Christmas so currently researching things to do and places to go. Suggestions very welcome. Bye for now. Ann

Hi Ann ......the area is quiet this time of year; unlike summer when it is busy.

Not many restaurants open either at this time of year.  Christmas sees 360 Restaurant open usually on Christmas Eve (last year they closed about 5.00 pm).  New Years Eve seems to be generally quiet-ish (not many fireworks going off).  Little town will be busy on January 6th for their Festivities for the 3 Kings.  There is a Parade with floats with the local children dressed up and music playing ....sweets being thrown from the floats!

There might be more happening up in San Pedro town.  They have  a small Xmas Manger Scene in the central square and that brings out the families.

The beauty of Lo Pagan/San Pedro is that we have the surrounding towns with Restaurants which may be open.  There is also La Zenia Centre not too far away.  Cabo Roig is of course on the way there with many Restaurants.  Torre de horadada is on the way up there too with Pueblo Latino Square and Restaurants and the beach is less than a 5 minute walk away.  Best to google map the area (that’s what we did).

Have a lovely Xmas and welcome to the area.

Thank you Margaret, you’ve given me loads to go at there. I think we’ll have to take a little scoot round, find somewhere likely looking and ask them if they will be open on Christmas Day. I don’t mind a traditional Spanish Xmas meal, in fact it will make a nice change. I just would like to go out as it will be the first time we will be without our grownup kids and the grand kids for many many years. They all have in-laws and other relatives to please so are coming on the run-up and going home for Xmas. We however want to spend in our new house. 

I’ll start with Lo Pagan but I think you’re right and it will quiet, then have a drive up to San Pedro and beyond. Nowhere can possibly be quieter than Albatera- where we’ve just moved from.

Thanks again for responding.
