Pollensa questions

My wife and I are coming to Pollensa early september to look at some bars. And we have some questions

Whats it like in the winter period
Our daughter is fluent welsh and we are taking steps to give her some basic spanish lessons before we move there. She is 11 could you recommend a school.

Appartments.... we want to rent an apartment on long lease any ideas ?

ANd hopefully if this all works out I wont need to get my plumbing tools out too often .hehe

Hi there & welcome to the forum,

with regards to schools & language - the official language in schools is actually Catalan & not Spanish (although of course this is useful) - see this post p221.ezboard.com/fpollensaforumfrm24.showMessage?topicID=220.topic for more info.

Winter is pretty quiet & a fair number of bars & restaurants, especially those aimed at tourists, will be closed. The main season is really Easter-October but I'm sure you'll get more responses from residents.

For long term lets, do try the Estate Agents on www.puertopollensa.com/localagents.html

hello there, As a resident of over 20years I have seen many people come and go during that time. As a friendly word of advice could I suggest that before you make such a big decision that you come over here for a week or two in December or January to see for yourself what it is like in the winter. PP is unrecognisable to the busy summer resort you may know and not everyone appreciates how quiet it is and a bit more ground work before you make the move could save you heartache and money in the future. good luck whatever you do but bear in mind - a bar would work for 6 long days and nights and you have to make enough money to last through the 6 months of the winter!! On a positive note your daughter will pick up Spanish and Catalan from her schoolfriends fairly easily.

Thanks for the advice JMD. We are really going to town on this and thinking about it constantly. I appreciate what it could be like in pollensa during winter periods and I guess Santa ponsa would be more productive in working all year round.

But its kind of strange that you mentioned spending time there first. Because we have struck up on the idea of spending a long period of time there before buying a business.

People may ask why would a plumber want to do this well. Truth is I have probably worked everywhere and want something different now. Although I shall still be carrying my tools with me just in case LOL.

regards Chris

Take your tools Chris - some of these old hotel have dodgy drains!!

Good luck wherever you end up.

Pollensa Questions
Another point, plumbers/joiners et all, it's worth noting you would earn nowhere near the kind of money your used to in the UK
