MOBILE HOME IN SPAIN NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE FEB 2008
Feb 2008 ** Some of the content might not be relevant on the date of reading this**
January has been a very interesting month with quite a few people coming to take a look for themselves taking advantage of the 3 nights for 2 offer. What has made it even nicer for them is that the weather has been better than normal with very few days where the sun was not shining. With only 20 days of rain a year being the norm it is January when you can expect to see a little rain so it is looking like 2008 is going to be the year of the sunshine. Good for the British who are fed up of seeing the rain but bad for the local farmers. It makes us smile that a country like Spain with very little rain never has a hose pipe ban.
Following the success of the January inspection visit offer we have again teamed up with Hotel Castilla in the heart of Antequera and can now offer tailor made Inspection Visits. The basic 3 day 2 night visit costs 49 per person which includes airport transfers, 2 night s hotel accommodation and visiting the parks and local area. Now you can plan a longer visit which can include further accompanied visits to the villages and mobile home parks themselves, spending some holiday time in the town Antequera which is well worth doing and therefore making the most of your visit to Spain. It only costs 18 per person per extra night that you wish to spend here in Spain. For example a 5 day 4 night Inspection Visit will only cost 85 per person plus low cost flight which makes coming to take a look for yourself well worth while.
To arrange a tailor made visit you can either contact Steve by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Derick on 0117 318 2188 who are more than happy to make the arrangements for you here in Spain.
So, what will you see on an Inspection Visit. The most important thing is the lifestyle. Moving to Spain is very easy but it is important that you understand exactly what it is like living in Spain. We have said many times that it is not the same as having a two week holiday. That is why all our staff live in Spain full time and so are able to give straight answers to all your questions. Living in Spain is not ideal for everyone and it is important to us that the inspection visit is not only enjoyable but very factual as well so that those who decide that living in Spain is for them know exactly what to expect and look forward to.
Back to our newsletter, those who have been subscribers to our newsletter for a while know that we do not seem to promote specific mobile homes via the newsletter very often. The reason for this is that we feel that the website is the medium for specific resale mobile home information. It is worth mentioning however that following the recent introduction of reference numbers being allocated to the mobile homes we have noticed that it is now much easier to send visitors to the website more information on a specific home and in some cases more pictures following a request containing the reference number.
What else is new? Well on the website we now have a feedback form so that people who have visited the area using our services can tell others all about it. It goes without saying that the first feedback report was very welcome and the author has been very generous in his praise. Martin and Steve are now counting the numbers of positive feedbacks following their efforts and we can tell you that as Steve conducts most of the inspection visits Martin will ensure the first one stays on the website for many years to come.
Finally, questions we have been asked in January. 1/ Are there any Lawn Bowling clubs within one hour drive? This question was an all time first and after researching the question we were able to report that there are several around Malaga. 2/ Do any of the residents enjoy fishing? This question we knew the answer to as we know some do but again after researching the question fully we were very surprised as to how many do and that they have their own club. 3/ Is medical care expensive? This is a very good question and the answer is that if you are retired it is free and if you are not then you can either pay as you go or take out a plan with the Spanish equivalent of BUPA. The pay as you go system means that you pay for visits and medicine and the charges are not excessive in any way. In all cases medical care is instant and very efficient and there are a few residents who will be more than happy to tell you how wonderful the Spanish health care is.
