Morning Mel
I don't know if you are able to repair the blind yourself , but this may help in the short term
I bought replacement mesh from the hardware shop in Villa Real De Santo Antonio .
I'm sure the hardware shops in Ayamonte must stock it but I couldn't find it
If your blind is beyond repair you may be able to bodge until you find a handy man who can

Ahh "bodge"
One of the most beloved words in the DIY enthusiasts manual.( or manuel in Spanish )
Derived from that well known firm of yesteryear " Bodgit and Scarper "

You could try Leroy Merlin for a replacement 'pane' for a DIY replacement. They have many sizes and kits to cut to fit. We fitted a new screen to our kitchen window and it was easy and reasonably priced.
We also fitted a magnetic curtain for the patio doors - ordered from Amazon.es and delivered locally. Again it was easy to fit with velcro/sticky tape fixings.

Chris and Mike, thank you very much for your replies. Only problem is that we are not there to do it. If anyone has contact details for somebody local who could do the job for us that would be great.

Thanks Mel

Hi Mel
Are you in contact with your concierge ?
If he can't do the repair i'm sure he knows someone who can

Depends what you are looking for but we had a broken slide style mozzy screen (the two that come together) and Oscar a friend of Bill and Claire got us a replacement and fitted it. Happy to share his number if you need it.

Thank you for the help, always difficult to sort these things especially when you are miles away. I have received a quote and, for others who may need the information in the future, The price given is €125 to put a new concertina type mozzie screen in the frame (master bedroom in a townhouse)
The frame has been removed and when the screen is made and fitted back in he will return to re-install it. Will take 15 days. 50% cash upfront and the balance when the job is complete. I am fine with that, cannot deal with myself it as not there and need the screen in.
