Re: LED Pool Lights - Anyone Use Them?

No. You can just reach in (on ours) undo the screws and yank it out!

Re: Returning in August

The 2 supermarkets are still there (1 in Binibeca Vell, 1 by the roundabout?) and there’s a good new one in Binibeca Vell in a building that went up a couple if years back. Plenty of restaurants have changed hands and there’s bound to be some more changes when they open up for this year so I’ll unle...

Re: Some Advice Please RE: Driving to Menorca with our lovely dog

We always have rescue Staffies and Staffie-cross dogs from Battersea. If you think the main problem would just be the French have you considered getting the ferry straight to Spain? I think it goes Southampton to Santander. A mate of mine took both his dogs on it when he moved out 2 years back, they...

Re: Ses Sargantanes De La Sort, Binibequer Q&A

Hi Grant We used Owners Direct to start with for the first 3 years but we don’t advertise now. We’ve got so many regulars who book year after year and others often get in touch who stayed in the past that we only advertise here now. Owners Direct changed and we could no longer suss-out guests before...

I could see there were official looking bods and cameras on this rooftop, I didn’t know Maurice was up there!

Re: Monthly and annual running costs

For a gardener allow about €15-€18 an hour + IVA so you could get 3 hours work for €50. Also I reckon gardens do grow a bit more in the winter there than in the UK so maybe price for a cut back in January. I have the gardener round on a Wednesday and he puts all off-cuts out as the garden rubbish co...

Re: Electricity poles

It does sound like we’ll be on the same parish, I’m near the top of the hill. I’ll know where to go to borrow a cup of sugar :toasting:

Re: Septic tanks (sort of)

I heard a rumour (Neil may have more of an idea if it’s true) that several years ago Sant Lluis council took money off all Binibeca residents to put all roads on main drains but then did something else with the money. I think the person said built the football pitches near the dove roundabout!

Re: Electricity poles

‘Looking at the area and surrounding roads, there are three roads left that need completing‘ There’s at least one road near us (in Binibeca Vell) with no street lights when all surrounding roads have them. I’ve been told this is due to an upset between the council and the developer when they were fi...
