Re: UK Car now on Spanish Plates .. possible documentation problem!

The original Scenic from 1999 was marketed and badged as a Renault Megane Scenic, I know because I bought one brand new in 1999 so perhaps that'a the benchmark they are using ? whether you call it a "Grand scenic or "JZ" the basic model is a Renault megane, Another model in the Megane...

Re: Range Rover help!! Granada area

You don't say where you live, Land Rovers are very common in Spain so there is sure to be a Service centre within driving distance, there's one in Digasa, wherever that may be !

Re: Tenant or landlord's name for utilities?

I have been renting the same apartment in Las Palmas for the last two years now and pay €550.00 per month, that includes water and electricity, my wifi I have to pay for myself, I have never seen a utility bill so presumably they go directly to the owner. I am moving to Torrox pueblo next Friday and...

Re: Currency exchange

Hi Wicksey, I don't know how much time you will be spending in Iceland or Denmark but from experience I can tell you that neither of those countries are even close to being cheap, especially for food and drink, I'd figure on a MINIMUM of €50.00 per person per day in either of those places just for v...

Re: Torrox

Anyone know of a (possible) restaurant in Calle Baja called I think El Tejia, I haven't been inside and there is no menu displayed outside, no indication of what it actually is, no menu displayed outside but it does look like a (Moroccan style) restaurant, any feedback on this ??

Re: Torrox

The best food I ate in the pueblo was at La Casa, very good food and service but also by far the most expensive in the plaza,I would recommend it though if you don't mind splashing out from time to time !

Re: Torrox

Well, I spent four days in Torrox last week and am impressed, Torrox park as has been suggested is little more than an urbanisation and not really for me, the costa seems to be totally targeted to tourists, mainly German but does have a decent paseo and some good looking restaurants. The pueblo is s...
