Hello,   I recently purchased an apartment near Torre Del Mar that is completely empty. I do not live in Spain, so I am looking for somebody who will help me to furnish it and also provide some help with administrative issues.   For example: going to ikea, buying the furniture I selected, arranging the delivery, and being present in the apartment until the ikea employees finish the installation of furniture.   I would of course prefer if the person speaks English of French, but even if he/she speaks only Spanish, then at least someone who regulary uses email.   I would appreciate any help.   Thank you in advance, Jasmine

Hello there Just wondering if anyone know where I can hire portable air con units? We are based in Caleta de Velez / Torre del Mar area. We have aircon in the living / dining area and our room but the guest room was unbelievably hot and stuffy - almost unbearable - this summer so we're looking into the portable unit in the mean time. i found a compay on an old tripadvisor thread but it doesn't exist any more! Thanks in anticipation, Angela

Hello We are seriously looking into moving to Spain from Crete and know the Alora area very well, so that would be our location of choice. Our current location is the Apokoronas region of Crete of which Vamos is the regional town and our house is currently up for sale. If any interested parties are reading this, we would be interested in talking to them about doing a property swap- Alora, Andalusia area for Vamos, Palailoni area, Crete. look forward to hearing from interested parties. Ian & Jill

Hi, We have a holiday home near Torre Del Mar and have been flirting with the idea of wifi. This is due to achange in my husband's job requirements and also because my inlaws are thinking of staying in our place out of season. I don't have a phone line and as we have rented out the property before, I don't really want a phone line for obvious reasons... is there any means of getting the internet or do we still need a phone line? If there is a way to do this, and anyone has experience of reliable providers, then would you be willing to share your knowledge / experience? Thanks in advance, Angela

I have an OKI TV which is only 3 years old. It won't switch on, tried replacing th remote control batteries but nothing happens. Any ideas on what might be wrong, or alternatively a TV tech who can fix it at a cheaper price than a new tv.

Hi! I'm looking for some advice on what television and Internet services to get for a holiday apartment. I will only be visiting for a week every 6 weeks, so im not looking to spend much. What is the situation with picking up UK channels these days? I presume if I buy a new television I will get Spanish freeview if I plug into an ariel, is there anyway to get UK channels for no monthly subscripton? And internet wise, I can get 3G on my phone for £1.99 a day on o2, but obviously that is no good for using a laptop or if if I wanted to stream any movies etc, does anyone know of any internet package that would suit for a holiday home? Friends of mine have mentioned things like Apple TV, but I'm not sure exactly how that works. Any advice welcomed, thanks In advance
