Re: Building options

Absolute rubbish !! Over the last 25 years I have had many properties built and reformed by Spanish builders. I have always used recommended companies close to where each property has been located, and have always found them to be professional, hard working and efficient. I do agree that it is essen...

Re: Crossing Regional Borders

Interesting topic, and whilst I agree that although inconvenient, the closing of provincial borders and in particular regional borders, reduces the risk of spreading Coronovirus, I despair at the lack of control over certain vehicles crossing borders.
