Services Needed – paint & painter

Does anyone know where I can buy Sandtex paint in the Nerja area? Also if anyone could recommend a quality professional painter would need scaffolding.

Thank you



Recommendation –Phone Repairs etc.

During an electrical storm recently, whilst charging our iphone on an unprotected supply, a power surge blew the battery.
Jason, on 695 318 587 situated in Burriana Properties, Nerja, was extremely helpful and quickly ordered and installed a new (and genuine iphone) battery, also repairing the damaged charger input, all for a very reasonable cost. We would highly recommend him.
NB. We bought a surge protector ‘tower’ (which takes three or two pin plugs) from the little shop just inside Nerja SuperSol for 25euros after that!

Where is the Kohinoor Now?

Hello , does anybody know if ´the Kohinoor´ has moved to another place? Kohinoor was the Indian restaurant close to the beach in Torrox Costa. If only we knew where the chef has gone, his food was the best..

Replies to Digame as we can imagine we are not the only ones disappointed that the restaurant is closed.. Thanks!

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
