cwells67: I should also add that our meds are just for basic cholesterol & high blood pressure meds, nothing for major conditions. Thanks again.

Expat Report Review of Marbella Montessori in Marbella, Spain by Fathector was published
Review-of-Marbella Montessori
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
There are currently 2 sites: a nursery and primary. Both are acutely under resourced in terms of equipment and staff. Health and safety is an issue that had not been addressed during my time there. Head mistress is difficult to deal with, most parents will not bring issues up with her because of the stinging, off hand remarks in front of other parents and children and unwillingness to address issues at her school. Numerous children have reported to parents that she shouts at them. My child was afraid of her.Parents were asked to fund raise for the new school in its entirety, I believe 20k was the (un achieved) goal and more funds are needed to complete the primary facilities which parents were asked to raise ie: capital for the school has come entirely from parents with no shareholding options. Staff and parents have left in droves in the last 6 months. Montessori influence is minimal. Most expensive school on the coast, to my knowledge not a member of any regulatory bodies eg NABBS and I am uncertain if they are registered with the Town Hall. I withdrew my child and have found her blossoming in her new school and catching up quickly on the work that was supposed to have been done at Marbella Montessori. (Continue)

I'm wanting to rent a furnished studio or apt. for two or three months or perhaps longer either in the Costa Blanc, the Costa de Sol, Murcia, etc. starting any time after November first 2014,. I am a single very senior retired US professional who speaks Spanish and on a VERY limited Social Security budget, thus rental cost is paramount. Please contact Rolf at ; laverdad11@aol.com.

A reader commented on the Expat Report Moving to Almeria, Spain
Moving-to-Almeria
What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
Hire a car, tour the area and find the village or town that appeals to you most. Find a good Spanish registered SL or SA estate agency - CB's are the equivalent to self employed status - and spend three days looking at houses in the area of your choice. Make sure that you have a car or access to one because in rural Spain it is essential to have transport. (Continue)

It is still possible to buy a very large, beautiful property for around 100,000. 100,000 euros or 100,000 dollars?

morgansexpatbar posted Expat-themed bar on the Spain forum on August 14, 2014:
Hi all, I'm thinking about opening a bar geared towards expats in Spain. What do you all think of this idea? The idea is that eventually there would be an international network of bars under the same name in iconic tourist locations. Hope to hear from you!!

panamalady posted Spain 1st visit on the Spain forum:
Hi , I will be coming to Spain for a couple of weeks in Sept. Flying into Barcelona and then want to go down the coast to Valencia. Should I take the train to travel or renting a car and driving would be more interesting? I do like cruising thru smaller towns and getting the feel for regular life instead of tourist stuff. Any suggestions would help. Also, any suggestions for a nice hotel (4star) near the center of everything in Barcelona. Thanks, Michele.
