We were supposed to be there by now but the date 1st sept was stopped due to family issues, and since then we've been waiting to be told when to book a ferry for and are still waiting.We've been fed a line I think, told the winter last year was in the mid-twenties on Christmas day, and that life is brilliant. however is it possible to find unfurnished villa pool away from the coast for less than £500 month long term, years? somewhere we can live for years to come...

thank you

Very much so.  We live at Valle del Este, 7 or so minutes drive from Vera Playa .... we have a two bedroom duplex with a view of the Mediterranean for 360,00€ a month.  We’ve just signed a contract for our second year in this place now.

I can recommend Valle del Este and I will also recommend the estate agent that found us the place, AM3 in Vera

Thank you so much, so it was unfurnished? i stayed at the hotel here in the summer for a few days, so I know where it is.

The weather probably was mid twenties on Christmas day. We sat out on our terrace til. 5 ish. If you can find a spot out of the wind and in the sun most days are pleasant enough to enjoy your outside space. The nights are cold though and most Spanish homes are not insulated so make sure you have some cosy slippers and warm things to wear in the evenings. Hope you manage to get here soon.

Yep - I Second JAS.  Christmas Day we went for a walk out near Cuevas de Almanzora; I was wearing a T shirt.  New Years Day, I was sat on our Terrazzo shirtless and in shorts.  

February / March it got a bit colder and windy ... but winter is nowhere near as severe as UK - hell, you really can’t compare the two - this is the Mediterranean .....

Of course valle del este has service charges on top! Or are they included?

My service charges are an extra 12,00€ per month.  That covers aaaalllllllll maintenance, garden etc etc and rubbish removal.  As I understand it, there is usually a charge on top for rubbish removal anyway wherever you are.  It works out to a total outlay of rent and service charge of 4.464,00€ per year which is NOT bad at all

Hi There

Just read your reply.  We are renting in Vera Playa from 1 November for 6 months. We have been asked if we would like to purchase logs for the property's woodburner.  Can you advise if you think this should be something we would consider.

Regards

Kate
