I was just curious to see if anyone else is surrounded by empty villas which for one reason or another never quite get completed, or sold on. Every time we get a potential buyer I am like a puppy at a gate hoping they will buy! I just hope things get better over the coming years. Murf

we will be moving to Costa Blanca and need storage for our house contents while property hunting. Is there anywhere at a reasonable price where it can be left for a few months.

We have recently bought a large townhouse in a lovely village near Guadalest.We need to put in some form of heating and are considering a pellet burner.We have heard they are very efficient ( we have a large open stairwell ) and we don`t mind the ( large ) initial cost if they are cheap to run and we don`t need a lot of other heat.Our space is about 170 sq mts total.Does anyone know anything of help ? Thanks LS

Does anywhere on the Costa Blanca sell these products? Have a real taste for them and now feel deprived as I can't find them anywhere!

We live in the Mazarron area and some workmen have dug right outside my sisters place, she is presently away and we are supposed to be feeding her plants, but it looks like they have either turned the water off or damaged a pipe? Does anyone know who we could get in touch with?? Murf

Just solved the problem of flies and mossies when we are eating under the gazebo. Couldn´t find curtains so bought a mossie net for over a bed and tied it to the middle of the gazebo, it cover the table perfect and now we can eat in peace. Murf

We want to update our kitchen by painting our wooden cabinets, retiling & replacing our worktops with granite ones. Does anyone know of a company that would supply & fit granite worktops ? When I looked in the ad section most companies only do total kitchen refits which we don't want. Also someone willing to retile would be good. Thanks Louise, Moraira

Has anyone seen a fire pit on their travels? They look a bit like a space ship shape. They are everywhere in the UK, due to the weather I suppose, but I was hoping to pick one up here ready for the cooler nights.Murf

I would like to have a go at ceramics and wanted to include some mirrored tiles in the design. I have tried local swimming pool shops and a couple of tile suppliers but not been very successful yet. Has anyone seen any on their travels?
