HiTex Tucker, you mentioned that the estate agent said they were exempt from having a complaints book. This is against the law as Spanish law states that every bar, restaurant and business in Spain has to have a complaints book ( hojas de reclamacions ), if they dont supply you with one when you ask you can complain to the Guardia Civil who will investigate and can close them down.

Hi Nigel, I registered with Aena Parking ( official on airport parking ) and get a discounted rate. This year I am away for 12 days and it has cost me €44. Stays to get discount must range between 3 and 20 days, book on line and pay with credit card beforhand or book and print off booking which you take to the office to pay before you leave the parking when you return from your trip, you will just need your dates and car reg number and by registering with Aena it covers all airports in Spain. Hope this helps

Have you tried registering with estate agents in the area you are looking to rent in as many of them have a rentals portfolio as well and they can send you details of anything that comes onto their books that may be suitable. Also look for local newspapers on line which will also have a property rental section.( eg Buy , Sell, Swap  which allows you to register with their property for rent section and they will send you text alerts and details of any new properties that have been advertised )

p.s. Floella is right re swimming pools, as from end Sept to May communal pools are normally not used unless they are heated as winter temps at night can drop very low and the water consequently does not heat up enough to swim in.

Hope this helps

If you are renewing your passport you can do it on line and upload a recent head and shoulders photo straight onto the passport application and it will give you a preview. You then pay on line, send old passport back to the address and reference number it generates and your new passport arrives about 3 weeks later ( Just had mine back ) saves a lot of time and hassle as theygenerate the right size image from the photo you uploaded.
