Re: Sending paint from the Uk

Seven years ago I would have agreed that Dulux was a good brand but the current Standard range is rubbish. If you try to wash off a mark the paint will wash off too. Only the Eaasycare range is any good and that is much more expensive. Last year on the advice of a local builder I bought the own bran...

Re: Vill Arade - Ferragudo

Visited this restaurant a couple of times on my recent visit and was very impressed. Worth a trip if you want something a little more refined than the average Portuguese grill.

Re: Best waterpark for toddlers

You also might want to consider Zoomarine which now has a big waterpark at the back including a toddlers pool. Although more expensive you can go to the wildlife shows to breakup the day.

An option for occasional Internet users

This is an option for getting UK TV for short periods if you don't have a broadband link. On arrival at the airport at the Vodafone shop I bought a Mobile WiFi R206 box and a GO 7 SIM Card. The box allows you to wirelessly connect tablets and phones to the internet and the card gives you 4gig of dat...

Re: Internal Paint

This year I painted inside with Maxmats own brand 'Master' on the recommendation of a builder who said it was actually made by one of the big boys. Did a good job better than the 'new' Dulux that I've just used here in the UK which now has a unique feature that it will wash off with a little water a...

Re: Hotels in Seville

If you want something different than the normal modern hotel then the LAS CASAS DE LA JUDERIA is a good choice and within walking distance of the sights. 'This former duke's residence consists of a labyrinth of Moorish-style houses and typical Spanish courtyards, interconnected by a grotto-style pas...
