Hi. We are thinking of moving to the Costa Blanca from France, so I have researched the regulations about residency, driving licences, etc. and quite honestly we are horrified and a bit daunted by all the hoops we would have to jump through just to buy a house and drive a car! Sign a '' foreigner's register ''? Obtain a registration number before buying a house? Spanish Bank charges? Have an obligatory medical and take a driving test to change to a Spanish driving licence within 6 months? As for registering the car - I daren't look! We would like to buy a villa or house just a little inland, about 15 mins from the beach, plus an apartment to rent out, all not too far from the airport. Can anyone soothe our troubled brows and reassure us that actually it's easier than it looks?
Hi I wonder if there are any Belgian or Dutch (or english of course) who likes to play Rikken or Weizen?.My Belgian wife and I enjoy playing cards (also Canasta ) and are looking to play a social game of cards on a semi-regular basis. It would be best that anyone should live within a reasonable distance of our home town of Moraira, just to meet up for a game now and again. If you are interested then respond to us through here. Regards - Tony and Nelly
Hello, I hope this is ok to post here. We are moving some effects to either Ondora or Alicante for storage. The 60m3 lorry will be empty on the way back to the UK. We were wondering if there was anyone that needed stuff going back or a whole household maybe? The lorry will be returning 22nd May, obviously through France. Thank you.
I'm considering installing solar panels to help with the electricity bills. I have done a fair bit of research to find a suitable company and have come up against difficulties with SolarDirectSpain which works out of Cabo Roig in Torrevieja. Does anyone have any information or have had any dealings with this comany please. Thanks in advance for any information.
We are currently buying a house approximately 1km from the nearest water supply.situated amongst orange groves but is rural. The house does have large reservoirs and a swimming pool. Built in 2004 with bathrooms and was lived in up to 2 years ago. Jacarilla area montesinos. Bank repo so can't ask the owners and we don't speak Spanish yet The problem is that although there are reservoirs and signs of agricultural water. None of the surrounding houses or us seem now to have supply.All their reservoirs are empty as well How can we get water delivered?The house is urbanised on the cadastre and legal. Look forward to any reply and would pay for help Andy
We are looking for someone in our own community around Oliva to help us deal with tradesmen and organise repair jobs and deliveries. The sort of thing a building contractor does but on a more modest scale maybe also keeping an eye on the house if we are away. Perhaps other older residents could use or knows such a person too? Would suit a retired tradesman or diy person with common sense. Please contact us if you can help or, if you know of anyone or would like to share such a service.
Two of our members, along with friends in El Campello and the surrounding villages, go above and beyond in fundraising every month to buy food for the Children of the Relleu Emaús Home. Elsie and David take time not only to do the fundraising but also to do the big shop from the huge shopping list they are given every month. From potatoes and greens to hamburgers and bacon; from apples and bananas to six dozen eggs – and everything in between! The next fundraising event for Relleu will be at the HONG KONG RESTAURANT in El Campello on March 28th; we encourage you all to come along and make this a bumper event. Contact email@example.com to book your place - just €10 per person.
