Wendy, We have noticed the tarpaulin cover over the damage. It must have been quite some shock for you and hope you were both ok. i hope you are soon able to get repairs underway. Ray & Lesley

Renting an apartment sounds like a no brainer - if that's what you want

BUT

Apartment blocks are basically empty in the winter (which is why the rent is so low) - would you want to be the only occupant in a block of apartments in a foreign country?

We gave that solution some thought but decided instead to buy a cheapo ex traveller caravan and store it in Spain, paying a euro a day for that.

We pay 35 euros to have it taken out of (covered) storage and put on site

We pay 12 euros a day to have it on site for 180+ days

And another 35 euros to have it taken back into storage

The benefits are many - but mainly social and no driving around to have a beer or something to eat although we do take a car to carry the stuff we need to use both in UK and Spain so there's the cost of ferry and mileage to add but I still spend less on fuel here than I would do in UK over the same period.

We are "thinking" about renting out our house in UK to generate some additional income - but actually can't be bothered (and fortunately don't need) to get it all sorted...

Cheers

Dave

Surely if the apartment blocks are empty you can find a property that is in a community?

Probably - but not, perhaps, at the price you want to pay or in the location you want to be in.

Just pointing out an issue that took us a while to realise before we went "our way"

Cheers

Dave

Thanks Ray, The tarpaulin is to cover the rear window which along with the kitchen window leaked (had lots of rain in France) The post tore at the capping and the bottom ridge. We are OK and hopefully we should be taking it to Southdowns soon, they have some parts but not all.
