Tried that a few years ago near Malaga and was told I needed an inspection, which I agreed to. The same week the guy from repsol called and after looking for 5 minutes he gave us a bill for 25euro and told us we needed a larger vent fitted to the bottom of our kitchen door and of course he new someone who would fit the vent for us for guess how much, 25euro. In the end I fitted the vent myself and found a guy at the weekly market who sold me a empty bottle for 10euro. Maybe things have changed. Michael

Hello everyone on here. I have a question which I'll get to in a second. Firstly my wife pointed me in the direction of this forum and I'm glad she did, especially as I recognise a couple of names mentioned, Derryl and Diego. They were very helpful when we bought our house a few years ago, which is near Bobadilla.

I read with interest some of the information on here and realise that webb15, I stayed at your house once. Really enjoyed it. Also skegbylad, I come from Skegby, I wonder if it's the same one. I can't yet send a pm otherwise I would.

We bought our house in 2009 and have used it as a holiday home for now, but from next month I'll be there for about a year. Getting round to my question, I have a couple of daughters who need to have Spanish lessons. Is there a language school that will do this in Martos/Alcaudete that anyone knows?
I'd prefer that they went to a school than having a private tutor but if that is the only alternative then so be it.
I've seen the British language school near the police station in Alcaudete and keep meaning to pop in and ask them, and I really must do so when I get there.
Thanks.

Thanks for that timmy. I need, I think, a couple of more posts before I can pm so I'll just hang on a bit. The schools in Martos might be an idea and could well know.

Three is also a bilingual state school in Martos now as well I am going to make enquiries about that as I'm moving to Martos in 3 yrs although my son has already started Spanish lessons a bi lingual school would be good
