hi, gixxer pat,
we are so sick of England that we purchased a 1- bedroom apartment last October (after a lot of research,asking questions etc etc). We are eventually going over to Lanzarote to work/live, but the time is not right for our kid,s yet re-garding education over here (college/uni) etc. we are going there when all this education has ended though!!!!!!!
we now own "PALMERAS 111 (NUMBER 5)" THERE ARE 8 APARTMENTS ON SITE, we are situated behind McDonalds on the main promenade/beach, we rent our apartment out, and have a full team of people (English company based in P D C working for us, cleaner/property manager etc).
If you would like i will put you in touch with them, the property manager is a partner of the estate agent(English), they have been in P D C for years!!!!!!!!!, and i can highly recommend them, the help and advice they give is fantastic!!!!!!, everything is done for you (we did everything in a couple of visits, we have even had the apartment fully re-furbed while still being over here. Also if you want to rent out our apartment give us a e-mail, and i,ll check availability/price.)

hope this information is of some help,
Karen PALMERAS 111 APARTMENTS

old ireland behind( i think i feel a song coming on ....only kidding)

to various bike/car shows (which i'll miss when we move to lanzer) and

We went to Lanzarote the last year Spain had the peseta, and the first year they had the Euro.

Using a 'shopping basket' of things we'd bought the year before, we found that in the main, proces had gone up by about a third!!

Local told us that all that was happening was that they were rounding prices up to create prices that were divisable by 10.

Horse stuff!! That's the same old line used when we moved to decimalisation!!

i have beengoing to lanzarote about twice a year since 1996,and just love it there.am too old unfortunately(70 yrs young)to move out there,yes prices have risen since the introduction of the euro ,but not as much as they have in the uk.you only have to blink here for something to have gone up.so all you lucky people who are thinking about moving out to lanz ,go as soon as possible.
