I am hoping to move to costa blanca south after xmas with my daughter. I am looking to rent a property for a period of 6 to 12 months with a view to buying if myself and my daughter decide to stay permanently. The areas i am looking into are villamartin/los dolces or playa flamenca. If there is anyone who can help me by giving me info on rentals, schools, residency, or who could just be there to help me to find my feet for the first few weeks, then it might not be such a scary prospect! It would also help to be able to meet new people, so that i would at least have some new friends when we get there. Hope to speak to you soon, Jackie
Hi all, Have just found out that i am pregnant, i will be due to have the baby in Jan in Denia Hospital. As this is my 1st, was wondering if anyone can give me some advice regarding child birth in spain. I have heard that there isnt the option for gas and air? Epidurals must be pre-booked and paid for? and that the only pain killer they have is pethadine? can anyone help
I am trying to obtain work here in spain and wondered if anyone had any tips on the best way about finding employment. Seems that it comes down to who you know rather than what you know. I am particularly interested in work at Al Eltet airport in Alicante, again any useful tips would be useful. Steve
Great site! We've need something like this for a long time! I have 2 children of 4 and 6 years and we're hoping to move to the Costa Blanca. Can anyone who's tried local Spanish schools and / or international schools offer any tips for us? Thanks, Chelle
My mum is coming out to visit in August, has anyone got any ideas on where I can take her? We will have a car so that is not a problem. I would like to take her to some really beautiful spots. Because I work here I have never had the opportunity to really look around the area myself. Fran
