Outdoor pool table

Hi,

Can someone please let me know if it’s possible to buy an outdoor pool table in Menorca? Any outlet specifically?

I noticed that villaplus always seem to have DPT pool tables, although these are unavailable on the DPT website - seem to be special order.

Thanks,
PV.

Binibeca

Hi, I have posted this under the ownership forum, rather than the general area for Binibeca because it ultimately my question comes down to house ownership and buying/selling. So.... Having been to Binibeca a lot (3 times / year, over several years), we have noticed this year has been very quiet in ...

Portable electric heaters

Hi,

I might need to pick up a few internal electric heaters to tide me over until the air con is installed.

Does anyone have an idea of rough cost locally?

Thanks.

Re: Property market in Menorca

I was actually referring to Fincas Saint Lluis, who are part of Redorka. I’ve used Redorka (rental and maintenance) a few times and I’ve also had a good experience. Finca means estate is Spanish, and I don’t believe there’s any association with Fincas Saint Lluis and Fincas Sunshine. As someone who’...

Re: Property market in Menorca

I’ve been looking at buying a property extensively over the 2 years and I’ve never come across this agent before. I’m not plugging any agent, but the ones that frequently come up are Fincas (never used), MoveMenorca (very impressed with), PropertyMenorca (very impressed with) and Bonnin Sanso (bough...

Re: Septic tanks (sort of)

What happens after two weeks, does it return to sender?

I’m not expecting a lot of post, and I presume that you can receive all your utility invoices online now.

Amazon presumably drops to a pick up point.

Re: Taxis A word of warning

I had the same issue in Punta Prima. We arrived by land train, but didn’t notice the huge gap in the mid day timetable, so after lunch the restaurant kindly ordered us two taxi (due to size of party). One arrived, the other didn’t. After waiting an hour, one of the waiters kindly gave me and my son ...

Re: Septic tanks (sort of)

No post boxes? Is this for sending or receiving post? I presume it’s the former! :)

Re: Monthly and annual running costs

Thanks everyone. I’m trying to be a bit accurate with my costs as I’m doing a lot of renovation to the property, which unfortunately has increased in cost quite substantially, and trying to work out whether it’s best to do it one go or split the project. It’s cheaper to do it in one hit, but I need ...
