Who supplies the fastest, most stable internet service in Chipiona? - 1 replies

mikeymd Posted by mikeymd in Broadband Internet, Wifi, Phone and TV in Sanlúcar de Barrameda on Sun Apr 4, 2021 10:48am

I’m about to complete on a house in Chipiona and will be looking for a fast, stable internet connection. Can you please give me your recommendations. I’m currently using Pepephone for both house and mobile but whilst their mobile service has been fine, the internet in the house has been nothing short of shocking, to the point of being a waste of time. Many thanks. Mike

Musicians and live music! - 0 replies

Hi all and a happy Easter!

I moved to Chipiona last September and am about to buy a house here and despite the restrictions I need to consider how to survive long term. I’m a percussionist firstly but a capable pianist on the jazz/salsa/musicals side of things, a graduate of the Royal Northern College of  Music. For over thirty years I’ve done the rounds of orchestras (Halle, BBC Philharmonic, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra amongst others), shows (Les Miserables, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Joseph, Fame, Oliver...all on tour; The Lion King in the west end as percussionist, conductor and rehearsal pianist), numerous jazz, salsa and Latin jazz gigs as pianist, arranger and musical director, classical contemporary music festivals as a marimba soloist/duettist, am very involved in the running of th3 National Concert Band Festival in th3 U.K. and for eight years was the Director of Percussion Studies and Big Band at Canterbury Christ Church University. 

So what now. Obviously there is next to nothing going on at the moment but as a newbie, what sort of live music, whether in venues, concert halls or within the community, goes on around here. I’m not looking for offers of gigs or teaching (although feel free to make them), I am looking to see what has gone before in order to work out what might come next. I have basic conversational Spanish which is improving and I love the deep end. 

All suggestions are welcomed,

Kind regards,

Dear Neighbours

I'm new to the area and am hoping to buy an American style fridge freezer.  Would the ice and water be ok to consume once filtered though these devices?

(Also what wifi company is the best/most reliable)?

Thank you

Hi everyone, we have recently been granted temporary residency and have sanitas health insurance. My question is, do we have to register with a specific local doctor and dentist like we do in the UK? And also will we qualify for the covid vaccine and if so how do they notify us please? Thanks in anticipation! 

Emigrating to Alcaidesa with my cat - 4 replies

PeterHop Posted by PeterHop in Animals and pets in Alcaidesa on Thu Mar 18, 2021 2:00pm

Hello future neighbours!

I'm being a house in Alcaidesa and want to bring my cat with me next July.  BA (partnered with PetAir) is quoting £1200 plus, which seems excessive for such a short trip.  I hear Iberia does it for around 150E. Any suggestions please?

Thank you in advance
