Hi there, I currently live in France but now have my house on the market, however I'm aware that due to the present property climate I could be still waiting for a couple of years to sell. Your brain picking part of this is that Hubby and I are seriously thinking about renting a place around the Valencia region ( this is where we are hoping to buy when sold) for the winter months say beginning Dec. to end March. Where would you recommend for the warmest, driest area to base ourselves? What sort of prices are we looking at? and are there any pitfalls to the renting scene? thanks in advance for you advice
Hi all Am thinking about buying some property in or around Sedella. Have trawled up a few estate agents - www.taurusrealestate.com, www.abaxproperties.com, www.spanish-homes.com (and www.spanishhomes.com !) Are any of these any good, or can anyone recommend a better one? Thanks John
I am moving from France to Spain in a few months and am in need of knowing whether of not the outlet plugs are the same. It looks like in Spain they have two cylinder prongs that go in just like in France but I see a difference with France having another prong coming out of the wall which actually goes inside the plug below the other two prongs. Please let me know if my plugs will work in Spain if not...is there somewhere I can find a converter online. Blake
ive been living in Brittany western france for the last 6 months begining to think i made a mistake coming here it takes forever to get anything done ,been waiting a month for french registration plates for the car when you ring them all you get is ,its in hand sir,you always get an estimated electric bill even if they read the meter and so it goes on.Are things better done here ?
Was wondering if anyone in the Malaga area would be able to quote us for a shower screen and if poss, come and fit it for us?! We are based in Montilla (Cordoba), so just over an hr away. Having said that, if instalation wasn't too taxing we could probably manage! The problem I am faced with here is that due to the height being shorter than the standard 190(?) cms, I have been getting quotes which I feel are excessive (to say the least)! So, we are looking for a two panal (left side fixed, right side hinged), in toughened glass. Really the simpler the better. We do like the frameless ones though I guess they'd be more expensive. Any info/help would be fab. Thanks.
Would also like to (eventually) replace our standard, white marbled floor with wood, ie. parquet/click system whatever but wood not laminate. Any thoughts? Everyone here seems to think it's a bad idea due to the heat. But the marble is of a poor quality and keeps chipping. It's also like walking on an ice rink in Winter! thank you.
