Hi......Newby here.I am looking for someone who travels, or will be travelling from the Malaga area to Jerez, Sevilla, or Murcia in the near future. And I would be asking a big favour of them.I have installed an Ikea kitchen in my home and returned to the Malaga store to discover the 2 pieces I need to complete it are out of stock, and that particular range is now discontinued.However, these pieces are still available in other Ikea stores, but they do not, and will not transfer them from any of them to Malaga.The two items are 30euros each, so it would mean a minimum 4hr round trip to spend 60euros, a daunting prospect.So, if anybody is willing to make an acceptible diversion to one of these other stores whilst on their travels, they would make me a very happy man. Naturally, I would be willing to offer a donation towards the cost of the journey.Hopefully,Griff

Just bought an apartment on costa del sol and opened a spanish bank account for mortgage etc. though still living in france till house sold.Not able to come to spain till autumn and our spanish is still fairly basic, so having problems understanding bank statements arriving by post.(both the headings and the figures). Bank's policy is not to send translations and my dictionary/internet translations are limited re. the terminology. Don't even know if we are getting an ongoing balance figure (saldo?). Could anyone help us decipher these headings if I email a list.?

Hi, I am looking for expats who would be willing to talk to me for my new book. You would be kept anonymous and I would like to hear your story, how you got to live in France and how you coped, what you did, any regrets etc. I can talk to you on Skype or email or, if you are up for it, I can send you some questions. I would like to get as many varied stories as I can, both positive and negative. Thankyou and I look forward to hearing from you.

We live in Brittany, France but are looking for a place to stay in Spain for about 3 - 4 weeks in January. Ideally we would like a serviced apartment or a Half-Board hotel. We're not looking for 5* but we do want nice quality in a nice location close to the sea. We are considering either the Costa Calida or Costa Del Sol regions. Can anyone advise of the best place to find what we are looking for? Thanks.

Although my wife and I applied to vote in the referendum neither of us received our voting papers from the council in England.  It seems this happened to quite a few and we would like to hear what other expats have to say.

Hi Everyone!So, me and my partner (and the dog!) are thinking about relocating to Spain, possibly in the near future. My partner is completely in love with the country and really wants to go however im thinking about it more practically! Just a few quick questions if anyone has any ideas!- We have a very large, long haired dog, thats really built for the snowy weather but isnt much of a swimmer! The house we would get would obviously have aircon but how do you think he would get on? - My partner would be able to get work pretty easily however i would be dog grooming, is there a need for this over there?- Whats  it like renting a property there? Do many properties allow pets?- Lastly, is the land really as dodgy as people say? Iv heard horror stories about people building houses on land that isn't theirs and end up being knocked down etc? Thank You!

Hi all. Our son is considering playing/practising golf at Desert Springs through this coming autumn and winter. So, we need to rent an apartment, preferably near to Desert Springs but in a nice coastal resort (so that we can enjoy a holiday there too). We will visit sometime to look at the area but in the meantime has anybody got any strong recommendations for resorts both to consider and avoid! Thanks.Michele xx

a warning for all in the Sabinillas, Duquesa, Sotogrande area, there is a so called estate agent operating from Property Angels called SALL DONAS.  I rented through her, gave her 300 Euros to pay electric water bills in my abspence, she did not pay any despite telling me she had. She refuses to give me my money back and will not answer my e mails or calls. I would hate to see anyone else conned by har, she is a CHEAT and a THIEF. DO NOT TRUST HER

 After the long wait I see that you have launched your new site. Will take some time to get used to but  it looks good. Some small errors need attending to but I am sure that you are dealing with them.
