Hi, I am moving down to a recently purchased villa in Benidoleig in May (initally as a single male with my lady joining me in 2015). Does anyone have an idea how much I would expect to pay, per hour, to get a local lady to come in, say, once a week to clean? By this I mean floors, windows etc. I can use the dishwasher and clothes washer without problem :) Thanks! Peter

Please can anyone let us know if the cost of white goods in Spain are more expensive than the u.k. Is it worth transporting from the u.k or is it more cost efficient to buy new in Spain.

We have just had our latest electricity bill,and are still reeling from the shock.We have daitsu air conditioning units in 4 rooms, but have not used these for heating as we believed it would be very expensive.We have a halogen heater and two oil filled radiators which we run for a few hours a day.Would it be cheaper to use the air conditioning units for heating?Any advice please.

Does anyone know of someone who caries out repairs to TVs? We have an LG 42" plasma which is difficult to turn on - but once it is on it works fine. I understand it needs a couple of capacitors changing and it's quite a simple job - but it obviously needs someone who knows what they are doing. Any info gratefully received. We are at San Jaime, Moraira. 965649077 or 634326947

We are house sitting for a friend in Relleu Alicante and the fagor gas boiler is showing a spanner and producing no hot water so cannot have a shower.  Does anyone know of an engineer that could possibly come and fix it - could be a calcaire problem but not our boiler - help!

Hii, Can anyone give advice on electric wall mounted marble heaters, this type is like a thin slab of marble, lies flat on wall, the electric current looks very low watage going in, but we need to know how much heat they give off, also would the electricity bills be very high? each room has it's own themostat to control them, also in the villa is a small fireplace, as you know it gets cold in winter, do you think they would be efficient to heat a 4 bedroomed villa, there are about 11 of these slab heaters throught out the house, I would welcome a quick reply before we take this villa on.  Thanks Trisha.
