We check your property with heavy weather

Rain fall in Javea December 2016
Rain fall in Javea December 2016

The last couple of days the weather has been extreme at the Costa Blanca with heavy rains and strong winds. Rivers floated, schools were closed on Monday as well as many roads. Xabia or Javea registered 150 litres per m2 in 4 days, this is what normally would fall in half a year time.

 

In the Alicante and Valencia provinces many damages were reported caused by the rain and wind. MMC Property Services makes sure to prepare you villa or apartment when this kind of heavy weather is expected, e.g. place all outside furniture inside, make sure windows and shutters are closed well and checks your home afterwards for any damages, water that may have entered your property and we put everything back in place. Whenever possible we can also go by your house during the heavy rain fall to keep you up to date of the status of your property and we will send you pictures, that way you can see for yourself.

 

All these services are included in our monthly packages for our property owners. Want to know more? Don't hesitate to contact us!

La Nit de la LLum Denia

Last night Denia celebrated "La Nit de la Llum", a magic night where thousands of candles illuminated the streets of the town centre. It was celebrated from 19.00h till 23.00h and all the local shops stayed open until late.

 

A beautiful sight and many people came to visit the town and walked around the Marques del Campo, La Glorieta, Plaza de la Constitución and la Plaza del Convent. For the town this is the start of the holiday season and Christmas shopping.

 

For those who could not be there, we leave you some impressions here.

 

Happy Christmas shopping to you all!

Pool repairs

Reparing a pool in Javea
pool repairs Javea

It's almost autumn and most of you might still be enjoying the last days in the pool. After that it's time for a proper check of your pool and use the winter time to do some repairs where needed.

 

For example once every certain amount of years it's good to grout the joints in between the tiles. That way you keep away the bacteria and mould in the joints and it makes it much easier to clean the pool afterwards.

 

Besides, did you know the water gets "old" and products will not be as effective any more? Another reason to get the work done and refresh it so next year you won't need as much chlorine for example.

 

Contact us in case you need help with your pool.

... can also be a nice day! For a stroll at the boulevard El Arenal, playing with your children on the beach, fly a kite or go to one of the several play grounds, at the sandy beach or elsewhere in Javea like the Pinosol park.

 

Now that it´s not too hot you can also enjoy hiking, there are many routes to explore, visit the old town or go for a nice walk along the Muntanyar beach from the port to the Arenal beach and back.

 

And when it rains? Enjoy a drink behind the glass on one of the many terraces and watch the waves. Or visit one of museums nearby like the Soler Blasco Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum in Javea.

 

For those who just love the sun, don´t worry, normally the sun comes out soon again!

Pool safety

Pool fence
Pool fence

Having a holiday home in the Costa Blanca is great and most of the time it comes with your own private pool. However, especially with little children, you need to be very careful and always follow the safety rules and guidelines.

 

A pool fence can help you to keep children out. Some features to bear in mind when installing a pool fence: the fence should be 1.22m high, have a gate that automatically closes, needs to be from a material that is difficult to climb and dark colours are more transparent, which looks nicer but also gives your better visibility when your children are in the pool.

 

These fences (see picture) are removable, therefore also a good option if you rent out your property in Javea, for yourself or for your tenants. Families with children can rent your property with the pool fence, others might want to rent your home without the fence. Both is possible as these fences are easy and quickly to place and remove for each rental. An additional feature when renting out your holiday home!

 

Looking for a company who can install these type of pool fences or want more information? Contact us!
