Quarter 1, 2016 – what happened?
Summer 2016 is just around the corner, well in fact, by the time you read this it’ll have already started, at least here in Tenerife...if you’re in the UK it will have already been and gone...!!! – Sorry I can never resist a little dig at the UK weather; in fact I know it’s been quite acceptable of late.
It’s time to find out how the property market fared during Q1 of 2016, so let’s have a look at what happened to the Spanish and Tenerife property markets. As I tend to point out, it’s always difficult to obtain true sales figures because there are still buyers and sellers that are not declaring the full value of the property that’s being sold. This always has an impact on the true results because not all figures are written on the property registration documents and as such, anything declared still has to be taken wi...
Society is more and more interested in looking after its health because a good well-being means a better lifestyle.
We see information on a daily basis – on social media, television, newspapers etc. In order to have a healthy lifestyle, it is very important to look after yourself by having a balanced diet, exercise and rest, important steps that can make a difference in the future. Also, to prevent and cure illnesses, many people decide to take out a private health insurance because, is there anything more important than your health?
A private health insurance allows the insured to have immediate access to necessary medical facilities, avoiding long waiting lists with GP’s and specialists, or for diagnostic tests and surgery. Also, adapting to the timetable of each client.

Yes, you have been hearing this for years, ever since property prices went into free fall in 2008. However, it does seem that 2016 really is a good time to buy residential property!
Everyone agrees that the property sector has recovered from the economic crisis of 2008 when the bottom, almost literally, fell out of the market. We are seeing that credit is starting to flow from the banks and, according to market-leading property reports, Spain’s economy is recovering well, even outperforming both the UK and Germany. House sales are improving and overseas property buyers, particularly from the UK, are returning. So all indications are that the residential sales market has entered a phase of recovery.

Legal and financial questions answered at information conference in Adeje on May 24th
There are so many questions being asked about 'what if' as we approach the June 23rd vote in the UK and, it would seem, few answers.
Politically the debate seems to be focussed almost entirely in the UK – but what about the millions of ex-pats who live abroad – are their rights and concerns being taken into consideration? Almost 300,000 of them are living in Spain, and over 7,000 in Adeje alone.
Focus, the Adeje International Focus group, has requested that the Adeje council collaborate in hosting an information evening. This is taking place on Tuesday May 24th, in the Adeje Cultural Centre auditorium, from 5pm – 7pm.
The experts who will be there to answer questions will be Paul Montague from Blevins Franks and laywer José Escobedo– and they are expecting to deal with issues ranging from hea...
Cercei is a pointer cross. She was found abandoned in Mount Teide National Park and although she was scared at first, she has turned into a lovely dog – obedient, loving and playful. She needs a family who can give her a bit of time to adapt to living with them and to train her a little. We are sure this will not take long as she is very willing to learn.
If anyone is interested in adopting Cercei she can be found at the Centro de Proteccion Animal de Tierra Blanca. The Refuge does not ask for adoption fees, only a donation of food and photos to let them know how your new pet is getting on in her new home.
Call them on 606 500 171 (for English, please call Rachel on: 629 031 273)
The Refuge is located off Junction 15, the TF1 motorway by the restaurant Los Chasneros, just 200m above the motorway. Read More
