FORMER Prime Minister Tony Blair has been soaking up the Spanish sun at a friend’s house in Benahavis.
The ex-politician and his wife Cherie were spotted dining in Puerto Banus after attending Sunday mass at San Pedro’s parish church. It was also speculated the Blairs would meet up with former Spanish prime minister, and close ally Jose Maria Aznar during their trip.
Although there is yet to be a picture of the two together in Andalucia, one twitter user wrote: “Spotted in Guadalmina, Marbella: Tony Blair is visiting my neighbour Jose Maria Aznar!”

The go ahead has been given to the Saudi Royal Family to create a project of over 1400 new homes near Estepona.
The project, will include a 6 star hotel and world class facilities and is planned for the El Paraiso area. A local Minister was quoted as saying “Along with the new Port that the Qatari´s are developing in Marbella, this is the most exciting thing to have happened to the Costa del Sol for years, there will be no expense spared and it will attract people from all over the world”
Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz, who is a regular visitor to Marbella and the Costa del Sol, was granted planning permission from the Town Hall in Estepona to create the development.
The prince, who is successor to the Saudi throne, had originally applied for planning permission in 2008.
The project will net Estepona Town Hall €2 million in planning fees alone which are going to be put towards new infrastructure projects, and is yet another indication of large external investment from foreign investors looking for opportunities.
Prince Salman is regularly seen here on the Costa del Sol with his entourage of over 100 people and sailing through Estepona, Marbella and Puerto Banus on his Super Yacht. He is due to visit the resort this summer.
A SECOND runway has been opened at Malaga doubling the amount of flights operating at the already busy airport.
Up to 70 flights an hour can now operate compared with 37 before. Construction began back in 2007 and large new planes such as Airbus 380 and the Boeing 747 can now use the airport.
The total cost of the project has been calculated at more than €400 million and is yet another sign of the investment being made in the Costa del Sol and the infrastructure here.
