Re: Broadband4Spain?

Thank you very much, Bob and Frances, that's really helpful to know you are pleased with the service. How do the costs work out, if you don't mind me asking, as we also won't be using it much till we move over next year. Do they take long to install? I wonder if I should contact them now and make an...

Broadband4Spain?

Hi everyone Can anyone recommend this company - I think it's called Broadband4Spain - we saw it advertised in the little free magazine, Sentinella, last time we were in Spain. We will be coming over to our house in Canillas de Aceituno for a week in January, which is in the Axarquia region, and want...

Re: No one want to move to Andalucia - says it all?

Hi tjtops - we are a few miles North of Grantham, but I'm a Gloucestershire gal really, born in Cheltenham. Moved to this side of the country with my first husband and 3 daughters 30 years ago. (I am 62 now) Hmm - so Spain wil be where I'll live for the next 30 years or so, going by my past length o...

Re: No one want to move to Andalucia - says it all?

Like Bob and Frances, my husband and I are going to make our holiday home our permanent home, probably around May time next year. Sorry to hear you were burgled, guys. That's always a worry isn't it, although - touch wood - it hasn't happened to us, yet, and like you there isn't anything of value in...

Re: Moving to Duquesa - Working in Gib

Hi Lynn I am a new member as well, I am finding the forum very friendly, and there is so much information available. I have a friend with a beautiful apartment in Duquesa - shame you are fixed up, as she would be interested in renting it out I know (or selling it, actually). Anyway - I will contact ...

Re: I'm new

Hi Miranda, thanks for your message. We won't be coming to live in Spain till probably May next year, just thought I'd post a few queries before we actually move. Have you got a date for your move? Hey - well done on that drive - a serious amount of mileage there!! I am determined to drive in Spain,...

Re: I'm new

LOL! I have noticed the Spanish enjoy using the horn more than the Brits - you will know when I'm around by the cacophany of beeps!

Re: I'm new

Thanks all, I know you're right. In the 5 years we've been coming and going to what is - at the moment - our holiday home, I have never driven when in Spain! I'm not a confident driver in the U.K. - I passed my driving test on the 5th attempt at the age of 46 (I am 62 now), and then the first car I ...

Re: I'm new

Hi Sadie That's really kind of you, I may well take you up on your offer to meet up. Which brings me to another of my problems! (How many more has this woman got, you are asking! LOL!) I don't want to be joined at the hip to my husband, but I have never driven in Spain!! I am not a confident driver ...

Re: I'm new

Thanks for your very encouraging reply, Wicksey. You sound quite similar to us, using your house as a holiday home before finally moving over. Our temporary home in the U.K. is now a caravan, and the only way to get internet connection here on our site is by means of a Vodaphone dongle. Not sure wha...

Re: I'm new

Thanks for your reply, Kexon. I'm sure you're right. Once I'm living here, I will pluck up courage to talk to people. More often than not, when we come over, some of the family come too, so I haven't made any effort so far to be sociable, haven't felt the need. It will be very different actually liv...

Re: I'm new

Oh, wow, that was quick! Thank you so much for your replies, Julia, Jools, and Debs! Our small town is a 'pueblo blanco', in the Tejeda mountains about 50 minuts from Malaga. My favourite coastal town is Nerja - absolutely love it there, although the nearest is Torre del Mar, about half an hours dri...

I'm new

Just thought I'd say hi. We have just sold our house and are now living in a caravan on a beautiful site until we retire to our house in Spain next year. We are self-employed, with a shop and there is a year to run on the lease, so we can't move just yet. I love our little Spanish house but my main ...
