Hi & welcome to the forum.

We bought hi-fi, microwave etc. from Carrefour. As mentioned a while ago, they are good for small electric stuff but if you need to get any large white goods such as fridge, wash machine etc. buy it locally in case you need repairs. Local places such as Confort will also install stuff, remove old ones etc.

Re your articles for sale (or give away) please post these in the Items Wanted/For Sale forum - thanks.

Hi Sonyaaa

We used confort in the port for our fridge freezer and as Pollensa says they are very helpful and will install and take old ones away. If this is a holiday home and your renting then Carrefour is the place for electrical goods.After leaving the airport there is a large outlet at the first exit off the coast road. We bought Bluesky TV, CD etc really cheap but they work fine.

We found setting up in the winter great fun. Enjoy !!

There is a furniture shop in the back of the town and I have always found the lady in there vey helpful. She may be able to help with your mattress. We bought our electrical goods from one of the local electrical shops too and they were good too.

You'll find enough restaurants in the town open at the end of Nov, but Gommar will be desserted, however occasionally Ikabana opens in the winter,I'd recommend it.

Good luck, we have had property in Gommar for many years now and love it.

Hi Sonyaaa

Congratulations on your home in the sun!

I really had a great time shopping for our apartment last year and even Chelseadons enjoyed it which is bizarre cos he hates shopping normally and I have to drag him along!

Even better is playing 'house' and getting everything to your own taste...we've spent hours and hours decorating and doing our own version of 'changing rooms', and whereas in England it seem a chore it's fun doing it in PP!

Hope you have as much fun as we did..which reminds me there's still a light fitting to go up in the kitchen Chels!!!

An added bonus is after a hard day grafting you can treat yourself to a fantastic meal and a few drinks!
