Re: Moving to Menorca

I think it best if you break this down into some component parts - Schooling - There are plenty of families that make the move with young, school-age children. I've not heard of anyone encountering any problems in getting their children into local schools, but you need to appreciate that they do not...

Re: What's on in Menorca

All they will tell you is to get residencia, the rest of the session is taken up with people asking questions that nobody knows the answers to. Same old, same old - the only surprising thing is how little some of those attending have bothered to find out these last few years. The last one of these I...

Re: Guide to conferring Power of Attorney

I used the POA, obtained as above, to confer authority on our solicitor to open bank accounts , obtain NIE etc. On the day we purchased our property at the notaries office, the solicitor was present, acting in her capacity of POA for my wife who was abroad at the time - that was May 2017. The law ha...

Re: Gonna be pouring down for my holiday :-( Any suggestions?

The forecast now suggests only the possibility of a shower today or Wednesday, the rest of the week is dry, if a little breezy. Today has started dull and overcast but the temp is still 25c and the breeze is quite refreshing. Thunder is forecast for the early afternoon.

Re: Buying property in Es Castell/Mahon

The best advice I can give is to sit down and work out what you want from life on the island. We holidayed in Son Bou for many years when our kids were tots - fantastic for 7 - 10 days, but would I want to live there all year - no. Once you get beyond the initial excitement of moving to the island, ...

Not being funny, but why not use the local AEMET weather service. Their forecasting data is taken from local weather and radar stations and has rarely been wrong in all the time I've used it. A friend of mine persists with the Met Office forecast and it can sometimes be so wrong its funny.

Re: Gonna be pouring down for my holiday :-( Any suggestions?

The forecast changes every few days, so more likely or not it will be dry and sunny. Just 48 hrs ago it was going to be torrential rain and thunder for all three days, now it is saying there is the possibility of rain. Wait until Monday before deciding 0 chances are it will be fine. This is a tiny i...
