Re: Son Bou in the last week of September

The stables and 'good-life' animal farm are just to the right of the hotel heading down the hill towards the wetland grasses and are right beside the water treatment plant, which can't help things either......

Re: Pros and Cons of living in Es Mercadal

Many thanks. We will be living there full-time. We have always lived in the middle of nowhere, our present spot in Devon is miles from anywhere without a single other property in sight. Sounds like Sa Roca will be a home from home then. The reputation for fine food is one of the attractions and ther...

Pros and Cons of living in Es Mercadal

Does anyone have any views on the pros and cons of living in the Es Mercadal area? A property has come up in Sa Roca that we like and were wondering if there were any issues such as English being less widely spoken, cooler winters, more/less bugs/mozzies etc. Any thoughts would be welcome.

Re: Son Bou in the last week of September

Sad to see the place slide backwards for the want of a few grand spent on painting the tired buildings but good to see the regular, hard-working staff returning year after year. We flew from Bristol with Easyjet and walked straight out...

Re: Internet speeds/providers

Your broadband 'speed' very much depends on a number of factors. If you are on a par with neighbours then the problem will generally be the dated cabling in the area. I live in rural Devon and we are at the extremes of the old copper wiring from our exchange and so our broadband starts off slow and ...

Son Bou in the last week of September

We are coming over for a week of property viewings on 26th September and will be based in Son Bou. Our days will be packed but I was just wondering what will still be open in the evenings in terms of bars, restaurants etc at that time of year.

Many thanks.

Re: Taxi for 5 people at the airport?

I can remember being picked up at the airport in a 6 seater Mercedes. It was a licenced cab picked up from the cab office directly opposite where you pass through arrivals into the concourse proper. Hope it helps
