Re: Property market in Menorca

Thanks for responses. Fincas Sunshine are a well established Menorca estate agent and they advertise locally and more extensively on Smart Move. Online searches for Menorca estate agents leads you to their website. They were also the only estate agent from the island who attended the the “Place in t...

Property market in Menorca

Just canvassing any thoughts on the current state of the Menorca market. Some recent reports suggest a bit of an upturn, especially at the top end. I’m a little surprised that our apartment which has been up for sale for about 18 months has not provoked any real interest. It is in a nice location in...

Re: online, free bank account for non-residents

Yes, I always use Transferwise. In fact just moved some funds today. Just a footnote to my praise of La Caixa, though. I have never bothered having a La Caixa card, just going into the Es Migjorn branch to get cash etc. I keep getting "maintenance" charges and go in to get a reduction (successfully)...

Re: Air conditioning

It was actually just a repair that they did for us. Our units are Mitsubishi and are cooling/heating/dehumidifying but I don't know the technical details. I know that the firm is a Mitsubishi recommended outfit. Cost-wise, we had a visit from Linea Frio, one of the bigger companies on the island, an...

Re: The Faithless Wife - Jo Eames

I reckon the location of the Cala was Macaret near Addaia. The description of the islands the lady sails out to match Illa Gran and Iia Petita off the coast there. I actually enjoyed the book. Far better than two others mentioned; Meander in Menorca is a hatchet job on the Cala Forcat area and readi...

Re: online, free bank account for non-residents

Agree about La Caixa. We have been with them for 11 years with no issues other than trying (successfully) to reduce one or two charges. Online Linea abierta is good.

Re: Where to buy...

Haven't noticed any in resorts, but most towns have places offering prepared meals, hot and cold. Look for "Para llevar". There are definitely places in Alaior, Mercadal, Mahon and Ciutadella, but usually not on the main drags. Pic-nic in Ciutadella (just off Ses Voltes near Hogar de Pollo) does lov...
