Hi

We are moving near Santopetar in a few weeks time and I was wondering if anyone who lives near that area can tell me if pig farms and flies are an issue. I have heard many mixed opinions about this. If this is an issue which are the worst months. We were there in February and didn’t notice anything.

Many thanks

Jan and Tony

It's not just the flies, which you can control by having fly free zones fitted, it's also the smell and, if close enough, the noise. An acquaintance in Urcal paid 12,500€ to have his pool and most of garden covered as did neighbours below us in valley.

My wife used to work for an estate agent and was prohibited from mentioning pig farms where present.

You are.right to be concerned. Before we had ours fitted we literally used.to sit outside swatting flies and we are 10km from pigsties. Even now, if working on fields, I wear a fly veil.

Spain, dust & flies.

Hi Andy,

Steve Mann & Associates. Albox. Ex- Police Officer, UK allegedly. Gratefully Sandra only worked there from Sept 2002-mid 2003. That's when we met.

Best Wishes,

Hi Jan & Tony,

There are no pig farms anywhere near your property.

The problem is that the Huercal-Overa area years ago used to have "hot spots" where it was a bit piggy, but these have nearly all gone. There is certainly not a problem in the Santo Petar area.

Speak to people who live around your area not people from mlles away or lived here years ago as you will get wrong or out of date information and of course us Brits just love to spread anything negative....Too many keyboard warriors!

As an agent we have never hid this fact as we know where the "hot spots" are and advise out clients accordingly.

Our other problem is that once other agents who are not stong in our area finds out someone is buying in the Huercal-Overa area they try to put you off buying rather than being professional and just being glad for the client that they have found their ideal property.

Would never have thought that of you, Hannah & team. Way too professional, unlike those Sandra worked with. Lazy is the least perjerative term that comes to mind.

They did her one favour though in letting her go as she found the hypocrisy upsetting. For myself I just wanted to continue travelling.

Strange how things work out.

Give our best wishes to Hannah.
